Forever 21 may be filing for bankruptcy


The company has been looking for lenders to help it deal with its mounting debt, but talks have stalled, leading to the bankruptcy discussion. If this happens, unprofitable stores will close.

This could be a huge problem for remaining malls in the United States, as Forever 21 is one of the last remaining major mall chains. According to Simon Property Group, one of the country's biggest mall owners, Forever 21 is the sixth largest tenant in their malls. This would lead a lot of open space which would be difficult to fill, and might lead to further mall closures.

Theater Roundup: In Comes 'Company', 'Moulin Rouge' OBCR and more


The West End revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical Company has been rumoured for a Broadway transfer for months and months - maybe even years? - and now it is finally happening. The revival is set to begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater on March 2nd, and open on March 22nd, which is Stephen Sondheim's 90th birthday. Katrina Lenk (The Band's Visit) will star as Bobbie, a single woman about to turn 35 in a world full of couples, and Patti LuPone will star as Joanne, one of her friends. Typically the role of Bobby is played by a man, but director Marianne Elliott (Angels in America) has a vision for the show that speaks to a large audience about being a woman today. The West End version starred Rosalie Craig and Ms. LuPone, and Ms. Elliott insists that the Broadway version will not be a carbon copy of that production.

'Don’t Let Go' kicks off Labor Day weekend box office with $150,000 on Thursday night




Look, between the meandering Disney-led bland summer, and the fact that all the good movies are probably premiering at film festivals right now, we're at the definition of slim pickings for this weekend's box office. Hopefully, and undoubtedly, next weekend's take will be more interesting.

Anywho, the thriller 'Don't Let Go' kicked off the weekend's BO with $150,000 on Thursday night in 922 theaters in the U.S./Canada, and is expected to make $3 million and $5 million over the long weekend (on a $5 million budget).

The only other sort of big release out this weekend was something called 'Bennett’s War' at around 800 theaters. Irregardless, 'Angel Has Fallen' is expected to top the box office again with around $10 million to $15 million over Labor Day weekend, followed by the comedy 'Good Boys'.

In limited release are the action movie 'Killerman' and drama 'Official Secrets'.

    BuzzFeed writer causes a ruckus on social media claiming that Friends is “absolute garbage”



    To mark the upcoming 25th anniversary of “Friends,” BuzzFeed writer Scaachi Koul wrote an article that has caused a ruckus on social media. Some agree, some do not, others say “click bait.”

    Highlights include:

    “But loving Friends in 2019 requires a level of mental gymnastics that should force the show to remain a forgotten blip in the past.”

    “Rachel got off the plane!!! I was glad, but I was also a virgin and didn’t understand that surely Rachel could find some other dick somewhere in Paris.”

    “Friends, a show about white people being thin and having the pointiest nipples in the continental Americas — and a show that I, at one time, watched and enjoyed — is absolute garbage.”

    celebrities react to former cowboys player, ryan russell, coming out as bisexual


    • yesterday, former cowboys defensive end, ryan russell, came out as bisexual in a public essay. russell was drafted by the dallas cowboys in 2015 and last played for the tampa bay buccaneers in 2017. he wants the next football team to sign him to know who he truly is. “my truth is that i’m a talented football player, a damn good writer, a loving son, an overbearing brother, a caring friend, a loyal lover, and a bisexual man.”

    • the lack of even one openly lgbtq player currently playing in the nfl, nba, nhl or mlb gives him pause, but russell wants to change that. “for me, for other athletes who share these common goals, and for the generations of lgbtq athletes who will come next,” he said.

    • an openly gay athlete has never played a game for an nfl team. in 2014, michael sam became the first openly gay player drafted when he was selected by the st. louis rams, but he didn’t make the final 53-man roster. in 2017, former offensive lineman ryan o’callaghan came out as gay, years after his retirement from the league in 2011.

    • russell said that athletes’ choices about whom they date are far from the nfl’s most pressing issues. i can say with confidence that lgbtq players having the comfort to be themselves, date who they want, [and] share parts of their life with friends and teammates will not rank among those issues,” he said.

    • russell also emphasized that he is still looking for a team. he was released by the buffalo bills last fall and that his choice to come out is not a choice to retire from the nfl. “i want to be able to dedicate my life to football without feeling like i can’t dedicate my life to truth as well.”

    Marvel reportedly cutting all ties to mutants in 'The New Mutants'



    - Apparently the recent edits Marvel Studios did were to intentionally cut any ties 'The New Mutants' had to FOX's X-men Universe
    - Additionally, the idea of “being a mutant” won’t be exactly mainstream. People thinks this is Marvel covering their asses in case 'The New Mutants' somehow becomes a hit (Arrested Development Narrator: "it won't") and they want to bring them into the MCU (Arrested Development Narrator: "they won't").

When there is a blackout , a game of what is the most low down thing you have done is played. As Diego tells his story he says it was the most indigenous thing he did. Dany tells him not to be stupid as Israel is right there. Diego say it is just a word for uneducated. Israel says nothing.

    Faq's:

    1. You don't need a Facebook account to watch. Just type real world Bangkok or whatever and start watching.

    2. They broke up the episodes in 3 as to keep people talking and then have the whole episode,24,28 minutes

    3. I was able to use the web video caster app to watch on my smart TV. The subtitles would not appear for Mexico and Bangkok, but I also am not tech savvy so there could be an easy solution.
