Why this creepy melody is in so many movies

This deathly 13th-century song shows up everywhere.

Think back to some of the most dramatic scenes in film history — from The Lion King, The Shining, It’s a Wonderful Life. Besides being sad or scary, they have something else in common: the dies irae. “Dies irae” translates from Latin to “Day of Wrath” — it’s a 13th-century Gregorian chant describing the day Catholics believe God will judge the living and the dead and send them to heaven or hell. And it was sung during one specific mass: funerals.

As Catholicism permeated world culture, the melody of the chant was repurposed into classical music, where it was used to convey a deathly, eerie tone. From there it worked its way into films — and if you don’t already know it, you’ve almost certainly heard it before: It’s played over and over in our scariest and most dramatic cinematic moments.

Kevin Hart Sued By Model for $60 Million Over 2017 Sex Tape

28-year-old model Montia Sabagg claims she was secretly recorded having consensual intercourse with Hart in a Las Vegas hotel room. In the 38-page complaint, Sabagg accuses Hart, Jonathan "JT" Jackson, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and other related companies of intentional inflection of emotional distress, violations of privacy and negligence.

Sabagg claims in the suit that she "had no knowledge that the intimate activity" depicted in the video of her and Hart "was being recorded."

The lawsuit states that Hart "conspired" with Jackson "for the purpose of obtaining financial benefit for himself" by drumming up publicity for Hart's Irresponsible Tour.

Did a woman orgasm during Tom Hiddleston’s Broadway show?

Because we haven't suffered enough already, apparently Tom Hiddleston is giving women orgasms from the stage.

A commenter on the All That Chat message board complained about a particularly passionate theatergoer at the Broadway play 'Betrayal,' which Hiddleston stars in. The commenter said of the thirty-something woman:

“My companion could feel a rhythmic banging against his armrest, punctuated by occasional low moans and giggles...[It] got faster and faster until there was one slightly louder ‘Ha’, and she resumed her normal seat position, put her head back and closed her eyes.”

But the woman wasn't done, kicking off round two near the end of the play when Hiddleston walked downstage and passionately kissed co-star Zawe Ashton. The enthusiastic fan left quickly after she and the show were finished.

While show spokesman Rick Miramontez had no comment, the unlucky commentator said it was the oddest thing they had seen in 55 years of theater-going and “you might want to avoid seat B-3.”

Hailey Bieber opens up to Vogue about marriage, religion, and "feeling inferior" as a model

Hailey Bieber covers Vogue Australia's October 2019 issue, and "bares all" about her whirlwind marriage to Justin Bieber, her religious upbringing, and the insecurity she feels in comparison to her famous model friends, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

On modeling: "My burn in the modeling industry has been slow and I’ve had to learn to be okay with that. I’m shorter than most of the girls. Even though I’m 5"8, I’m not a runway girl and I totally used to feel inferior to some of my friends. Look at Kendall [Jenner] and Bells [Bella Hadid] and Gigi [Hadid] … they’re all tall and doing every runway. I had so many people, like casting directors, say: ‘We don’t think she’s a real model.’”

On marriage: "Look, marriage is always going to be hard and I think good relationships are the relationships that you put the work into. I had never lived with someone before. I never had to cohabit with somebody in that way, so I was learning how to share space with someone for the first time. If you don’t want to compromise you can’t be in a relationship."

On religion: "I grew up in a Christian church, same as my husband, and I’ve been vocal about my beliefs. That’s something that makes a part of our relationship easier, too. When you both believe in the same thing, it eases conflict. It’s important for people to have something to believe in. It doesn’t have to be Christianity, by the way. The church I go to (Hillsong) is what I believe to be true. I live my life believing that when I die, I’m going to go to heaven. If I so happen to die and there’s nothing at the end of it, at least I lived my life believing in something."

The issue hits newsstands Sep. 23rd.

Warner Bros. film head tries & fails to explain why 'The Goldfinch' bombed so hard

The stupid non-reason as to why 'The Goldfinch' bombed, according to Warner Bros. domestic distribution president Jeff Goldstein?

“I think the audience wasn’t interested in seeing this literary work on-screen. There were many things that didn’t work, but the biggest was probably the marketplace. The gap between the have and the have-nots is growing even bigger.”

He might be on to something. Even the movie's actors said film was the wrong medium for the adaptation. Terrible "actor" Ansel Elgort said it would've worked better as a play, while Sarah Paulson suggested a four part miniseries.

Either way, it's a flop, and it'll end up costing WB $40M-$50 in losses.

Chipotle is adding carne asada to its menus nationwide this week for a limited time

Chipotle is adding a new protein to its menu for the first time in a year.

The fast casual restaurant is rolling out carne asada for a limited time at all stores nationwide in the US starting Tuesday. This is Chipotle’s first new meat item since it reintroduced chorizo last year.

The company tested it in 3 cities over the past year after it performed “incredibly well.” They also approved the steak for three popular diets: ketogenic, Paleo and Whole30.

Along with the new protein, the chain has also recently rolled out new vegan / vegetarian bowls made from existing ingredients to help lure more customers.

Love yourselves and get yourself some actual authentic carne asada from your local Mexican restaurants or food truck. But if you’re on a pinch, this is an option...for a limited time.

Binging with Babish: Ziti and Lasagna from The Sopranos

Rarely does food play such a central character in a TV show or movie that's not specifically about food, but in The Sopranos, it might as well be one of the family. The crown jewel of which, despite Artie Bucco's hapless attempts, is the cuisine of Carmela Soprano. Strap on your gold President and build a ramp for the ducks, because it's time to emotionally repress our murderous mentality with some cheesy, saucy pasta - with a layer of basil underneath the cheese, of course.

Brutally Honest Emmy Ballot

There are too many nominees (8).
'Pose', did not watch. R.Murphy’s are the same over and over again (pretentious and no appeal)
'Ozark', jumped the shark in season two. 
'This Is Us' is lovely,
'Better Call Saul' is great and J.Banks is the best actor on TV
'Game of Thrones' it was frat-boy central, didn’t mind the ending, they lost their way when they didn’t have a book. 
'Bodyguard', loved it, R.Madden was amazing.
'Succession' is brilliant, its second season is even better than its first.
'Killing Eve' is the best drama, in love with P.Waller-Bridge, watch for Jodie Comer, Sandra Oh is great.

Best Comedy Series
'Russian Doll', it’s Groundhog Day without a point, hugely disappointed.
'Schitt’s Creek', lovely, but don’t know how it got nominated.
'The Good Place', not of the caliber of network shows of yesteryear like Cheers.
'Maisel', didn’t love this season,
'Veep' is great, but there should be a mercy rule where you can’t win something more than three or four times. 
'Fleabag' and 'Barry', would love to vote for Phoebe, but Barry is the best show on TV.

The View: NYT Authors of Kavanaugh Book, RIP Cokie Roberts, Hot Topics

NYT Reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, Authors of the book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh

Some abbreviations W=Whoopi, AH=Abby, J=Joy, SH=Sunny, MM=Meghan McCain

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
MM starts with controversy. An op-ed in NYT Opinion talked about a new allegation against Beer Bong Brett. This made the essay in NYT prior to the book being released. What was provided in the book, but eliminated from the essay, was that the woman didn’t recall the event and declined to be interviewed. They also discuss why her name was revealed. AH and MM continue to challenge, re/ the witness Max Stier happened to work for a law firm back in the 1990s who provided defense for Pres Clinton during Whitewater era. Authors say they examined his history from high school, college, the 36 years since, find that he’s grown up, maybe learned from his mistakes, his judge record paints him more an establishment conservative (vs right wing ideologue). Says everyone can try to demonize BK, everyone can demonize the witness, the victim, the reality is somewhere in between, more complicated, the purpose of the book was to provide an objective view. The victim has said again that she can’t go through the interview again, and when asked if anyone else can speak to the event, she responded, “Ask Brett Kavanaugh”.

SH brings up again the additional witnesses and informants who came forward to the FBI but were prohibited from investigated. The victim’s lawyers gave 25+ witnesses, but they were never interviewed. Blasey Ford gave more witnesses, but they were never interviewed. Authors discuss the limited investigative, said the one week timeline was based on Anita Hill being 4 days.

J reminds that Tr/mp is still standing by Beer Bong Brett, says BBB should sue. Authors say that’s great he’s paying attention to the book, reminded they tried to do what reporters do – investigate and report the facts. A lot of people have seized on certain things prematurely. W asks, Has anyone read the book. SH has, the panel received it yesterday, but it was embargoed and doesn’t go on sale until today (Tuesday). Then something about a tweet that was problematic (whew) that was quickly deleted. Mess. [I didn’t listen much to this portion, it’s the third clip starting 2:00 mark.]

SH legal note BK has no comment on new allegation and has previously denied all allegations.

Brad Pitt wants the world to know that he won't be pimping himself during awards season

Brad Pitt would like the world to know that no matter how much praise he's getting for the movies he has out, he will ~~not~~ be pimping himself out during awards season.

“Oh, man. I’m gonna abstain. I mean, you never know, and it’s really nice when your number comes up. But the goal is for the film to land, to speak to someone, whether it’s now or a decade from now. I find chasing it actually a disservice to the purity of your telling a story, and a shackling thing to focus on.”

Depending on how weak supporting actor is this year, there is a chance he could get a spot for 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. 'Ad Astra's getting kind of more mixed reviews so dunno if that's in the stars (yes all puns intended).
