Netflix has announced a series of upcoming collaborations with (in)famously elusive manga group CLAMP for an, as of yet, unknow future Netflix Original series. Members of CLAMP have been active on social media celebrating the partnership, it is said up to 20 new characters have been already created.
Other big names that have been recruited are Kibayashi Shin, involved in the Fire Emblem series; Ohtagaki Yasuo, known for Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt; novelists/anime screenwriters Otsuichi and Ubukata Tow; and finally, mangaka Yamazaki Mari.
Not much else is currently known. Netflix is currently one of the most successful promoters of dotcom ventures and creator of original series, supporting a wide range of genres in order to have a wider international expansion.

When Tallulah Jones was thirteen, her grandmother plucked her from the dank Oakland apartment she shared with her unreliable mom and brought her to the family ostrich ranch in the Mojave Desert. After eleven years caring for the curious, graceful birds, Tallulah accepts a job in Montana and prepares to leave home. But when Grandma Helen dies under strange circumstances, Tallulah inherits everything—just days before the birds inexplicably stop laying eggs.
Guarding the secret of the suddenly barren birds, Tallulah endeavors to force through a sale of the ranch, a task that is complicated by the arrival of her extended family. Their designs on the property, and deeply rooted dysfunction, threaten Tallulah’s ambitions and eventually her life. With no options left, Tallulah must pull her head out of the sand and face the fifty-year legacy of a family in turmoil: the reality of her grandmother's death, her mother's alcoholism, her uncle's covetous anger, and the 142 ostriches whose lives are in her hands.

Mandy Moore gave an interview to Variety recently, in which she discussed the future of This Is Us, her upcoming album Silver Landings (out March 6) and touring for the first time in over a decade. She also addressed her early years as a cog in the teen pop machine—in a decidedly more positive tone than she has in the past.
The 35-year-old singer-songwriter, who once claimed she'd like to refund buyers of her "awful" first two albums, says she's "turned the corner on that line of thinking."
"There are creative choices that I definitely wouldn't make [now]," she told Variety's Chris Willman. "But I don't want to malign how I started and where I came from, because that sweet 15-year-old who didn't know any better is still living inside of me, and she is a huge reason, if not the reason, that I'm still able to do what I love to do."
This sentiment is reflected in "Fifteen," one of the 10 new songs on Silver Landings in which Moore sings: No regrets, with a few exceptions / Every wrong turn, was the right direction / Still a part of me. She credits "the wisdom of getting a little bit older" with softening her view of her career beginnings, a chapter she says she is now developing a scripted television series about.
"When I sit and regale people with stories from that time period, it blows me away sometimes," Moore says. "It in many respects feels like an entirely different person lived that—touring with *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, and being an MTV VJ, when my friends are going to prom and taking SATs and going to the mall."

This is the tweet a former Bernie staffer tweeted from a locked account. How many senior Bernie staffers saw these tweets for months and promoted their behavior? It’s commonplace I endure this by extreme Bernie supporters daily. The change has to come from inside their campaign. https://t.co/TyjKc6KGtW— Jonathan Van Ness (@jvn) February 25, 2020

You can only imagine the amount of times I thought about writing this. The way I would write it, how I would feel thereafter. Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it. Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why. A journalist contacted me, he found a way to reach me and I told him everything this past summer. He was kind and it felt so amazing to finally speak. The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days. Of course I survived. The recovery took time. There’s no light way to say it. But I can tell you in the last decade, the thousands and thousands of days I committed to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the sun does now shine. You wonder why I did not choose to use my voice to express my pain? I did not want to show the world the sadness in my eyes. I asked myself, how can I sing from the heart if it is broken? And slowly it unbroke. In the following weeks I will be posting a spoken interview. If you have any questions I would like to answer them, in the spoken interview, if I can. I have a sacred love and sincere appreciation for your kindness over the years. You have been friends. I want to thank you for that x Duffy Please respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family. Please support me to make this a positive experience.
Singer Duffy who had many smash hits disappeared from the music scene several years ago. Now, she is sharing what happened in a brave Instagram post.
“You can only imagine the amount of times I thought about writing this. The way I would write it, how I would feel thereafter. Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it.

Last night/this morning, 20-02-24/25, kpop soloist, SuperM and SHINee member Taemin hosted an instagram live in which he
In it (approx 3:10) he states:
- his upcoming concert titled "Never Gonna Dance Again" has been cancelled due to coronavirus and while they "look for a better venue in which to perform". He says he can't tell them which day it will be, since he doesn't know for sure. He also adds "Saying it's cancelled doesn't mean it will never happen". As an aside, he also asks fans to promise they will properly wear masks if they go in public as he doesn't want them getting sick.
- his new album is being ''delayed'' and he and his team are currently discussing whether to "release it as planned" or just release it. He softens the blow by saying he sees it as a good thing, as it might give his music more of a seasonal feeling
- and, as an accidental spoiler
he mentions twice, the photos Parisian fans recently took of him are actually "only about 10% of an MV" and didn't spoil too much of the project, to those that were concerned

Shark Tank: Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary
More clips and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
MC thinks the political race is pick your choice of crazy. Says this that and the other. KO says it was a mistake for Sanders to praise Castro, particularly for voters in FL. Nobody wants to talk about Castro, even in a bad way. Says the literacy program was a re-education program, so it wasn’t that great to begin with, it was Castro fault they dropped in literacy. A historian would have nothing good to say about Cuba or Castro. KO says he’s a policy wonk, no Potus has lost their mandate when unemployment was under 4%. KO is saying this as an investor. KO doesn’t think Sanders will turn America into a communist country but the stats aren’t in Democrat favor. Both MC and KO move to stock market, talk about why there won’t be another crash (eg Great Depression). Gives details. Talks a lot about the stock market, economy, jobs, making ends meet. Sunny asks what they think about Bloomberg the billionaire. KO gives his opinion, compares difference between Bloomberg vs Steyer, both billionaires but one performing a lot different so money alone isn’t the reason for how they’re performing in polls.
Meghan talks about herself says blah blah. MC and KO talk about bigger deals. They talk about the show, missed opportunities, who is the meanest, etc. MC who owns the NBA Dallas Mavericks wants to retire Kobe jerseys and supports changing the NBA logo to Kobe. MC tells story. Talks about the memorial service yesterday, how strangers came together to mourn him.

'Mad Mike' Hughes died aboard his crowdfunded, steam-powered "FLAT EARTH" rocket in a California crash Saturday. https://t.co/PlsfbguDPE— VICE (@VICE) February 23, 2020
· Flat Earth conspiracy theorist "Mad" Mike Hughes died on Saturday at the age of 64 after his homemade, crowdfunded steam rocket crashed in Barstow, CA. Video of the crash posted by freelance journalist Justin Chapman shows that the rocket's parachute(s) was torn off during takeoff. The launch was being filmed for the Science Channel's "Homemade Astronauts". (The video is at the source but I didn't include it bc I didn't know how y'all would feel about it)
· Hughes said he believes Earth is flat and launched his first rocket in 2014 with the goal of eventually launching himself 35,000 feet to prove Earth doesn't curve. A previous launch in 2018, which sent him 1,875 feet into the air, left Hughes with a compressed vertebra
· Hughes also didn't believe in gravity :/
before everyone asks, flat earthers think plane windows cause visible curvature so that's prob why he didn't take a plane to see for himself
Michelle Janavs, whose father and uncle invented Hot Pockets, was sentenced to five months in prison for trying to cheat and bribe her daughters’ way into college. https://t.co/CXZQS8G2n5— AP Eastern US (@APEastRegion) February 25, 2020
- After pleading guilty in October, Michelle Janavs was today sentenced to 5 months in prison for pay $100,000 to fix her two daughters' ACT scores, and $200,000 to have one of them labeled a beach volleyball recruit at USC. She had claimed that she was misled because she loved her daughters so much, but the judge informed her that plenty of people love their kids without doing crimes.
- Her family, the Merages, sold their company to Nestle for $2 billion in 2002 and are pretty proud of their charity work, which her lawyers cited as proof that this was just an aberration and she's a good person.
- Why can't she be more like that nice Toaster Strudel heiress, with her crosswords and murder-solving?
- The only parent to avoid prison time as a result of the Varsity Blues investigation pleaded guilty immediately. Felicity Huffman was previously sentenced to 2 weeks for paying $15,000 for corrected SAT answers. Aunt Becky and Mossimo are still fighting charges that they spent $500,000 to get their daughters into USC.
“If you’ve ever called a .GIF a Jif®, we forgive you,” says GIPHY and Jif® peanut butter, who are teaming up to beat a dead horse and try to settle the great internet debate over how to pronounce GIF for National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day (March 1st). Limited edition jars are on sale at Amazon for $9.99 (lol, oh please) while supplies last.
“We’re teaming up with GIPHY to put a lid on this decade-long debate and prove there is only one Jif... it’s creamy, delicious peanut butter, not a looping picture you can send to make friends and family laugh,” said Rebecca Scheidler, Vice President, Marketing of Jif. “So spread the word like Jif on bread—Jif is peanut butter, GIFs are animations!”
“At GIPHY, we know there’s only one Jif and it’s peanut butter. If you’re looking for all the GIFs, there’s only one GIPHY,” said Alex Chung, founder and CEO of GIPHY. “If you’re a soft G, please visit Jif.com. If you’re a hard G, thank you, we know you’re right. Whether you like your Gs hard or soft, let’s all share some fun and let peanut butter unite us in saying GIF and eating Jif.”
Regardless of what anyone else thinks, we’re all “technically” wrong in the eyes of the creator of the GIF, Steve Wilhite. He declared in 2013 at the Webby Awards that the acronym “GIF” should be pronounced “Jif.”

He took to Instagram to show off the results of his weight loss after slimming down in seven weeks.
And how did he do it? In another post earlier this month, he opened up about a seven day juice cleanse he used:
"This week was truly incredible, we arrived Saturday at this retreat and had no idea what to expect but wow did it deliver.
“Surrounded by people all here on a journey ready to Juice cleanse and detox the body for 7days! Sounds crazy having no food for 7days but wow just wow! I feel amazing.."
He also posted videos/pics of him working out.
