Rare Early Silent Lesbian Film Poster Price Climbs



Filibus is an early (1915) silent Italian film about a female sky pirate making highly skilled robberies while leading a double life as a countess. With her own futuristic airship, she silently hovers over her intended marks, ready to strike, using scifi (for the time) devices to break into the tightest of security.
As a mistress of disguise she readily seduces both men and women in order to fulfill her plans. This is film one of a planned three part serial that didn't take off, The film was written by Giovanni Bertinetti, a member of the Italian Futurist movement whose ideas on gender fluidity and equality were well before their time.
The remastered film is appearing at several film festivals throughout 2019, and is receiving a favourable response.
One of the early posters for the film has come up for auction and is climbing fast from the initial $1.00 bid, to approach $1000.00 which is surprising for a relatively unknown foreign film, and whose lead character seems to present an LBGTQ face.
Emovieposter.com has featured the poster over the last week and seen the surprising price climb. Poster is here:

The revival trend is finally paying off!! ABC Boss confirms "Happy Endings" revival talks.



- ABC Boss Karey Burke told THR that she’s “hearing whispers” about a possible revival.
- Her exact quote was “That is a dream of a lot of people at ABC. I’m hearing that there’s a remote possibility of something. It’s at the very beginning stages".
- ABC cancelled Happy Endings after 3 marvelous seasons back in 2013. And while there was a lost episode that wrapped up the show, we still need a season 4.

ONTD Investigative Original: Did Lea Michele REALLY Get a Nose Job?

2007 (24)


OP was working on an ONTD Original that focused on celebrity hypocrites, and Lea Michele was the first in that entry. Why? Because she has made a career out of having a big nose and being proud of it, and the comments in my last ONTD original convinced me SO FAST that she had her nose done.

Hello Girls

Winona has been starving for life in the seemingly perfect home that she shares with her seemingly perfect father, celebrity weatherman Stormy Olsen. No one knows that he locks the pantry door to control her eating and leaves bruises where no one can see them.

Lucille has been suffocating beneath the needs of her mother and her drug-dealing brother, wondering if there’s more out there for her than disappearing waitress tips and a lifetime of barely getting by.

One harrowing night, Winona and Lucille realize they can’t wait until graduation to start their new lives. They need out. Now. One hour later, they’re armed with a plan that will take them from their small Michigan town to Chicago.

All they need is three grand, fast. And really, a stolen convertible can’t hurt.
Chased by the oppression, toxicity, and powerlessness that has held them down, Winona and Lucille must reclaim their strength if they are going to make their daring escape—and get away with it.

Barney’s files for bankruptcy





Iconic luxury retailer, Barney’s, is filing for bankruptcy and closing 15 stores. The closures will leave the retailer with seven stores - two in New York City and locations in Beverly Hills, California, San Francisco and Boston, as well as two Barneys Warehouse stores.

Barney Pressman founded it in 1923 in New York as a discount clothing store, with the company refashioning itself as a luxury retailer under his son in the 1960s. In the 1990s, it expanded nationally and to Japan.

Recently, the rent on its Madison Avenue store had surged from $16 million to $30 million. The stores had also struggled with a shift to online shopping, a pressure that almost all retailers, regardless of the wealth of their customer base, are struggling to offset and will close its stores in Chicago, Las Vegas and Seattle, as well as five smaller stores and seven Barneys Warehouse locations.

Southern Charm's Shep Rose Mocks Homeless Woman Collecting Cans on the Street



Southern Charm's resident douche canoe Shep Rose was slammed by many of his followers after he posted a video to his Instagram Stories making fun of a homeless woman in the East Village. The trust fund baby, who is approaching 40 and has never had a job, angered many of his fans (he has fans? judging you) on Monday after he recorded himself mocking a homeless woman for collecting cans. When confronted by his followers, Mr. Veneers tripled down on his actions and refused to apologize for his behavior, leading fans to express their disgust on social media and call on Bravo, the network which airs the reality show, to take action about the incident.

“Look at me, nice cans! I mean, the cans you have!” he jeers in the since-deleted clip (which was captured by a fan) as he pans the camera over to the pile of cans. In response, the woman covers her face and yells back, “No! No!”

After watching the short clip, several Twitter users slammed Rose for his actions and even tagged Andy Cohen, Southern Charm executive producer Whitney Sudler-Smith, and his costar Patricia Altschul in their scathing messages. Rose responded fans by writing, “Always get a chuckle when people try to send me to the principles [sic] office. I bet you were a scream in high school!”

Where my Southern Charm fans at? This made me so angry I was blinded by rage. Video is hard to watch. This poor woman. People are upset Bravo hasn't acknowledged what should be a firable offense. LOL at people thinking Andy Cohen would do anything about this. I'm done with the show myself.

'are you the one?' s08e08: 'this sucks and blows' recap


and we're back for another week of matters of the heart and loins of young sexually fluid hotties with bodies and poorest of pickers when it comes to love. there will be spoilers for last night's episode so if you didn't say to yourself "sleep deprivation is tuesday-me's problem" last night then avoid this post until you've seen it. if you're like me and spoilers don't phase you either way then come on in! the mess is fine!



join us, bbs!

in last week's episode, the house received three beams including two confirmed perfect matches!--the catch is that one of the perfect matches is known to the house, braasha (baasha...? aashon...?--brandon and aasha), and the other isn't, jonsit (bonathan...? basij...?--basit and jonathan).
in last night's episode, the house with danny's (underappreciated hottie) lead, got to calculating who the third beam could be amongst the remaining potential matches.


  • after some migraine inducing maths that i couldn't completely follow, it's determined that the third beam could potentially be longrunning lead hopefuls in the house jax, dai (dani...? kanny...?--danny and kai)--which i dont get because i could've sworn they sat together at the ceremony when the house blacked out--and jjasmine (jennasine...? jasmina...?--jenna and jasmine)

  • with the potential third beam couples decided by the house, jenna and amber are potentially not a match. which sucks for both of them because they deserve love after all the drama--amber especially.



  • amber and jenna get closer, bonding over height and stability in relationships, even though they know there's a 50% chance they aren't a couple. i think they could be...

Target just launched Halloween costumes for kids with disabilities


While Halloween is 85 days away, Target is making sure every child can get in on the fun.

No matter the disability, it's difficult for parents to find or take the time to make a costume for their child; Oftentimes, it's very expensive too.

For kids in wheelchairs, there are princess and pirate costumes (20$ - 25$) and wheelchair coverings of a pirate ship and princess carriage (45$, both already sold out). The cool thing is, it's not the costume and coverings in one set, so you could very well be a pirate princess if you wanted to!

For kids on the autism spectrum, there are shark and unicorn costumes with flat seams and no tags (25$ - 30$)

You can look at all of the avaliable options here.

Other retailers? Time to get good.

Jon Voight Channels Your Racist Uncle on Facebook That You Can't Unfriend

He then goes on a really fucking weird and offensive rant about how slavery is old wounds that still seem fresh but "let me talk about our wounds.. the holocaust. that my friends are wounds that live among the jewish and non jewish that lost lives." Honestly, what the fuck.

But this isn't about color or race even though 22 people were killed in El Paso this past weekend by a white man who thinks that there is a "Hispanic Invasion in Texas."

Apparently America was built on trust and liberty and a land of opportunity [citation needed]

He says that Donald Trump loves this country and wants to make it great again [citation needed] and that the angry left is preventing him. How fucking dare  you.

How pay-for-play (payola) is still present in the music industry




-One manager recently spent approximately $10,000 through a third party directly paying radio DJs in the “urban” and rhythmic formats to play a single. The payments were strategically employed to boost the singer’s spins.

-Another music-industry veteran claims that he spent five times as much to try to break a record in the rhythmic format. “I bought all my spins at the right places,” he says. “We spent about $50,000.” He got around 800 plays, mostly in mix shows.

- Payments are fuzzily described as promotional, and funneled through independent promoters who are frequently compared to “consultants” or “lobbyists” for hire.

- “There could be one guy who has one station you want, another guy who has 12 stations that you want. I don’t think there’s any way somebody could have a hit at radio without having to do that.” (Talking about paying consultants for exposure)

- For one thing, it’s streaming, not radio play, that drives monetization today, so labels largely don’t expect a direct return on their investment. Instead, they hope that the radio exposure they are shelling out for at high prices will boost clicks on Spotify or Apple Music.

Tom Brady says “it was hard” when his son wasn’t into sports: “What do you mean? He’s a boy”




In September’s issue of Men’s Health, quarterback for the New England Patriot, Tom Brady, talked about having a difficult time accepting that his son Benjamin was just not into sports.

His older son Jack, 12, from
a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan, is a sports fanatic just like his dad. His son Benjamin, 9, who he had with wife Gisele Bündchen is not.

“Jack is just like me—he holds a lot in. Benny lets it all out. Vivi, she doesn’t care. They’re going to be their own selves, not who you want them to be,” said Brady. He elaborates furthermore saying, “Jack loves sports. He wants to try hard, and he never wants to disappoint his dad. That was me. I’d wake up early on weekends to do stuff with my dad. That’s why I didn’t party a lot. If Dad wanted to golf, I wanted to be there with him. And if I ever missed those things, it would crush me.“

He continues: “When Benny came along, I thought he would be just like Jack. So I was like, ‘C’mon, let’s do this.’ And he was like, ‘Nope.’ And I was like, ‘What? No, do this!’ And Gisele kept saying to me, ‘Would you effing understand that your son is different?’ It was hard for me. I was like, ‘What do you mean? He’s a boy; he should just do all these things that I do.’”

After some self-reflection he realized that his wife was right. “The reality is that Benny just likes different things. And it’s great because now I just have to go do what he wants to do. When we do that, we have the best time. He’s like, ‘OMG, Dad, you’re so funny.’ He loves joking, and I joke back.”

Witnesses say there was a little drama at the top of the escalator before Nicki absolutely refused to travel down the escalator. Instead, she made the paparazzi come to her for photos.

Casey Affleck: ‘It Scares Me’ to Talk About #MeToo Movement



Casey Affleck addressed his decision to stay quiet.
“I really wanted to support all but I felt like the best thing to do was to just be quiet so that I didn’t seem to be in opposition to something that I really wanted to champion. It’s a tough spot to be in, especially if you really do appreciate and want to be a support of the side that seems angriest, and the anger is being directed at you.”

Affleck said the movement took a toll on his mental state.
“The way that I’m thought of sometimes by certain people recently has been so antithetical to who I really am that it’s been frustrating. And not being able to talk about it has been hard because I really wanted to support all of that, but I felt like the best thing to do was to just be quiet so I didn’t seem to be in opposition to something that I really wanted to champion.”

He clarified that the values of the #MeToo movement should be undoubtedly supported.
“Who would not be supportive of the #MeToo movement? That’s an idea that’s even out there? That there are some people saying we do not believe in equality and we think the workplace should be a dangerous place for certain people and not for others. That’s preposterous.”

Jennifer Garner Says She Was ‘Defined’ by Pregnancies and Babies

For the 25th anniversary of InStyle, Garner says she is no longer the 'hot girl' and is not offered as many roles as she used to get in her 20s

“When you’re one of the ‘hot girls’ of the moment, you’re making choices that define you. I was defined first by choosing to go on hiatus, and then I was very quickly defined by pregnancies and babies.”

"I don’t have the offers coming at me that I had during that first [2004] cover, but I know that what does come my way is because someone really wants to see me take a shot at a role."

She says she guards her kids’ privacy:

“I guard my kids’ privacy as much as I possibly can, and I’ve never posted pictures of them on Instagram. “I’m sure there are times my kids would really love to see themselves reflected on social media in a fun way and to have the attention they would get from that. But I’ve fought too hard against it. It would feel hypocritical.”
