Thailand king and his harem ran away to a hotel to spend quarantine

King Maha Vajiralongkorn is chilling in a luxury hotel nestled in the Bavarian Alps in Germany.

But the monarch is not alone at the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in scenic Garmisch-Partenkirchen. He has a royal entourage of 100 including his harem of at least 20 women.

Since late March, German media reported the king flitting about Dresden, Leipzig and Hanover in his private Boeing 737.

“The king’s behavior during the coronavirus crisis has been a disaster for the reputation of the Thai monarchy” states an activist, while Thai residents who dare express criticism face potentially prison terms of up to 15 years. There have been numerous cases of citizens being jailed for several years just for posting negative posts about the royal on social media. “What do we need a king for?” has been trending online due to his behavior.

The Reviews for Alice Wu's 'The Half of It' Are In...

...and it's a flawless gem of a movie, currently ranking at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes!

THR: Smart, charming and endlessly refreshing.

New York Times: By exploring issues of race and queerness with emotional complexity, it treats teenagers with the sophistication they deserve. (...) Wu’s feature debut, “Saving Face” (2005), was one of the rare films to focus on the queer Asian-American experience. Now, “The Half of It” reflects sharpened ideas and a honed directorial voice.

Screen it!: Maybe the offering simply caught me at the right moment of wanting some ray of sunshine in our current bleak world, but I loved every minute of it. Funny, charming, heartfelt, and delightful, it also touches on some deeper thematic material regarding teens, immigrants, and sexual orientation.

Vulture: It’s yet another riff on Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, one of the most overused comic-romantic prototypes of all time, but it’s so tenderhearted and transporting, its characters so likable, that you can’t help but want to give the movie and everyone in it a big hug. (...) We get so involved in the airy perfection of this correspondence and all that it opens up that the duplicity slips away and the human connection becomes downright metaphysical, a precocious teen’s dream of a better world. As filmed by Wu, the screen lights up with ornate words, pictures, and text messages, all of it contributing to a kind of dream life, one where these people’s words help transcend their mundane, dead-end milieu.

The Makeup Museum releases Marilyn Monroe's skincare prescription ahead of museum opening

New York City's Makeup Museum was expected to open on May 1, but obviously has been delayed indefinitely. The first exhibit is called "Pink Jungle: 1950s Makeup in America" and features a prescription famed dermatologist Dr. Erno Laszlo gave to Marilyn Monroe.

In addition to a very strict regimen of his products, including different skincare instructions for normal nights and formal nights, he also told her to avoid all nuts, chocolate, olives, oysters, and clams. Marilyn apparently had drier skin so her skincare routine involved oil cleansers and lots of creams. Erno Laszlo's line is still available, as are many of the products Monroe used. The company even re-released the "Normalizer Shake-It" ahead of the launch for the exhibit.



Beauty post (obviously). What's your skincare routine?

We still don’t know much about Stabler’s Law & Order spin-off, but showrunner Warren Leight revealed that Stabler will appear in the first episode of SVU’s next season. Apparently he was supposed to show up in season 21’s finale together with his family, but then the coronavirus happened and production was shut down. It’s not clear yet if Stabler will return with or without his family, but who cares tbh! We’re finally getting the Olivia/Elliot reunion we deserve!
