Once Again, Big Brother Canada Does Something Racist

It's not a healthy relationship between the show Big Brother and fans who love the social chess game but hate to see the constant racism, bigotry, and general awfulness of the cast members and production crew. This year for their eighth season, Big Brother Canada presented a refreshingly diverse line-up of houseguests, including the first Sikh man (Hira Deol) to ever play the game. Unfortunately, things went downhill quickly in the first few weeks after a series of micro-aggressions ultimately led to production's decision to eject a black man from the game.

Sofia Richie covers "Cosmopolitan"

-Model and designer Sofia Richie covers "Cosmopolitan"

-Richie speaks of how she became a model. Richie "A lot of people just become models because they're influencers. We would all get the same jobs,be in the same space, and be labeled the same thing,and I hated it. it made me take a step back and be like, okay, I'm a creative individual and I want to be smart,start my own business,do something I can do on my own, and not be attached to other people".

-Richie on how she dealt with her famous father's shadow. Richie " I was discouraged because everything I did was 'Lionel Richie's daughter'. She says she is grateful and wouldn't be where she is without him-'but it's hard branching out into my own person when I have such a powerful artist as a father. my dad was always like"once you find your own thing, you'll move away from that', and I feel like over the past years, I found my Lane in life to go the direction I want to go'.

-Richie thinks nothing of the 15 year age gap in her relationship with reality star Scott Disick.Her parents have an 18 year difference and Richie says they're perfection.

We did it? Sony hops on Early-Release to Digital Bandwagon with Bloodshot

Just like the temporary measures in place for Trolls 2, Sony has decided to do the same for the "Opened slightly worse than a normal day with $9.2m" Bloodshot, on March 24th.

The article says 'sell-through' and the Chairman mentions 'the chance to own', so I suppose it's owning this movie for 20$ digitally, though I can't imagine why you'd want to.

Sam Smith Encourages Everyone to Take Care of Eachother & Where You can Donate

"I just want to really bring home and just say how important I think this time right now is for all of us to remain a unit and to look out for each other, especially for all the older people right now in the world,” Smith said. “I’m worried about my Nan and there’s so many people I’m worried about. We’ve just really got to look out for each other and be patient and be giving and share things."

You can help out and donate to older individuals or people who aren't able to get access to necessities. Organizations like Musically fed: based in Los Angeles have turned turned 7,000 pounds of food intended for events at Staples Center in Los Angeles into 24,000 meals for shelters and missions across the city.

Another charity in the UK called First Days, contributes to families who are having difficulties in these times to provide for their babies.

In good charitable news, The Attorney General forced sanitizer asshole hoarder Matt Colvin to donate 17,000 bottles of sanitizer he was hoarding. Colvin gave two-thirds to a local church, which will distribute to people in need across Tennessee.

Lastly Smith encouraged fans to keep themselves busy while in isolation, whether through movies, television, music or even books -- "Even though I hate reading."

Reese Witherspoon: "Bad things happened to me. I was assaulted, harassed. It wasn't isolated"

-Reese Witherspoon opened up about the past sexual assault and harassment she went through as a young actress in Hollywood.
-She talked in the past about being sexually assaulted by a director at the age of 16.
-When asked about the time it took to reveal what happened to her to the public she said:

"I recently had a journalist ask me about it. She said, 'Well, why didn't you speak up sooner?' And I thought, that's so interesting to talk to someone who experienced those things and then judge them for the way they decide to speak about them. You tell your story in your own time when you're ready. But the shame that she tried to put on me was unreal, and then she wrote about how selfish I was for not bringing it up sooner."


Introducing the New 'New Warriors' and BOY is it...something.

So, in "That sounds like a parody superhero made by a person with a furry icon" news, there's a new team of superheroes for someone to train.

How about Psychic twins SNOWFLAKE (projectile snoflake shurikens) and SAFESPACE (pink force fields to protect other people ala Steven Universe).

"They’re hyper aware of modern culture and optics, and they see their Super Heroics as “a post-ironic meditation on using violence to combat bullying.”"


There's also a ... person who looks like a vampire but may or may not be one (B-NEGATIVE), as they had a blood transfusion from Michael Morbius (I mean, why is he donating blood? He knows what he is.)

The other two - SCREENTIME and TRAILBLAZER - are pretty okay, if we ignore Screentime's love of extreme memez.

Allegedly, There's a Cats Movie Butthole Edition

Rumours of a Cats Butthole edition spread early Monday morning, allegly sourced from a VFX artist who worked on the film adding, then removing buttholes from the humanoid characters.

Sadly, film critic/professional troll David Mekler claims a source dispelled these rumours, though fur was edited to look less vulgar.

The Canadian hockey fight no one saw coming: Bob McKenzie vs. The Hockey News

Background info: The Hockey News is a magazine about the NHL (owned by Graeme Roustan of Roustan Media), and Bob McKenzie is TSN's top hockey insider, privy to trades, free agent signings, etc.

This morning, Bob tweeted that The Hockey News had laid off some staff in light of COVID-19.

Roustan responded that they had only been laid off temporarily, and suggested that McKenzie “clean up or delete your Tweet. Your choice of words is causing mass confusion.” People assumed the magazine had shut down.

McKenzie knew the situation for what it was: A media company not wanting to pay its employees. So he left the original tweet up, and said, “My tweet is not inaccurate.”

Roustan then flocked to The Globe and Mail to present his company in a better light, claiming the layoffs were supposed to be for only a week, and so much has changed since then. "It’s just a wave of data and information coming at me.”

Roustan then tweeted about this "jousting," hence our post. Bob McKenzie remains free of flaws and is probably drinking a margarita rn.


Fun fact: Bob McKenzie started his career at The Hockey News!

Amid COVID-19 pandemic, GRRM says he's writing daily while isolated...

The laziest damn writer in the fantasy genre (and possibly all of fiction, idk) has deigned to give us an update via his blog, in which he has stated:

"For those of you who may be concerned for me personally… yes, I am aware that I am very much in the most vulnerable population, given my age and physical condition. But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions. I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff, and I’m not going in to town or seeing anyone. Truth be told, I am spending more time in Westeros than in the real world, writing every day."

He also added that although he has shut down his cinema (the Jean Cocteau Cinema) and Stagecoach, his non-profit foundation, he will continue to pay his employees for the forseeable future. Good on you, Gurmy!

Let's Have a Netflix Party, ONTD!

Netflix someone has introduced the Chrome browser extension Netflix Party, that allows users to share a movie watching experience together....from a safe social distance.

In a recent movie theater closure announcement post, I had mentioned wanting to host some ONTD Movie Nights where we could get together virtually and live post through a movie viewing. Netflix Party could make that even easier, with a live chat box built in-screen.

I propose weekly movie viewings & we can easily share hosting duties, so that other time zones get a fair chance. I also realize some countries' Netflix have a different movie selection. We already have FFA Friday & Saturday posts, but we can always do it on the weekends if that's better for more people.

Below is a poll for users to vote for our first movie night selection & date/time. I have tried to select a few films across several genres. Lastly, anyone unable to download the extension or who doesn't have Netflix is more than welcome to join in the ONTD comments under the link sharing post and find a viewing of the movie by any legal means necessary.

Who Were The Seventh & Eighth Contestants To Be Voted Out Of Survivor: Winners At War

The seventh and eighth contestants to be voted out and sent to Edge of Extinction were...

[Spoiler (click to open)]Parvati and Sandra :(
What the absolute fuck. :/

We got a glimpse of EoE this week (honestly I didn’t even realize we didn’t see it last week). Rob joined the crew so of course we were going to see him there. Tyson figured the clue out, and successfully sold an Idol Nullifier to Parvati.

Back on camp, Adam still wasn’t satisfied because Ben wasn’t talking to him 24/7. Come on kid, can’t you be happy for two seconds? Fortunately for him, his tribe won the Immunity/Reward challenge.

On the Blue tribe, Michele knew it was going to be between her or Parvati, as the guys all seemed super solid. She tried to talk to Wendell (girl wtf, really?) to discuss Fire Tokens, telling him she’ll write his name down so if Parvati does get voted out, she’ll get her token. Wendell didn’t want to talk to her, so instead he ran off to Parvati and tried to make a deal with her. He offered her his vote towards anyone, if she gave him two of her tokens BEFORE the vote. Basically he used Michele’s idea in a more aggressive way. Parvati declined, obviously, and told Nick. Was Wendell always such a rude asshat? I don’t remember him being so abrasive and grating during his season.

At their Tribal, Michele and Wendell’s relationship came up. He got very defensive, and also tried to defend his Token bartering with Parvati. Wendell put his offer on the table again, right in front of Nick and Yul, but Parvati stressed that Wendell wasn’t trustworthy at all. Yul was clearly in the dark about everything.

The votes were read, and the seventh person to be voted out was my beautiful Queen Parvati. :( She tossed her Fire Token into Michele’s bin before heading to EoE.

Well at least Michele’s plan worked :/

On the Red tribe, Tony was off in his not-so-secret bunker, so everyone was careful about what they were saying, and where they were saying it. Sandra was fully honest with Denise and Jeremy, telling them one of them was going. She began having second thoughts, and contemplated if she should give her Idol to Denise. Jeremy wondered if he should use his advantage, where he can leave a Tribal before the votes are cast. Denise also had her own Idol to consider playing.

At Tribal, Jeff asked why everyone doesn’t consider everyone a threat, since they’ve all won. Sandra differentiated between the obvious threats and the not-so-obvious threats. Denise and Jeremy tried to plead their cases, Jeremy being a physical asset, and Denise being a social and loyal asset.

Denise used the Idol Sandra gave her to save herself. She then voted for Sandra. She also used the Idol she herself had to save Jeremy just in case.

The eighth person voted out was Queen Sandra :( She tossed her Fire Token in Yul’s bin before heading to EoE.
