The "Into the Wild" Bus Will Be Moved to A Museum


The bus made famous by the book "Into the Wild" and the film of the same name will be moved to a museum. The bus is the death site of Christopher McCandless, a nomadic 24-year-old who starved there in 1992.

Since then, many travelers have made a pilgrimage to the bus, even though it is incredibly dangerous to get to and Alaskan authorities discourage it. Three people have died trying to get there. The state frequently has to send rescue missions to save dumbasses hikers who get trapped near it.

Officials will transfer the bus to a museum in Fairbanks, AK.

Assuming this fucking pandemic ever ends, where do you want to see before you die, ONTD?


Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Lizzo Show Support for Megan Thee Stallion

Because some of ONTD hasn't been able to comprehend why celebs like Chrissy Teigen and 50 Cent are wrong in their commentary on Megan Thee Stallion being a VICTIM of gun violence, here is an example of women supporting women, specifically Black women supporting Black women.

Beyonce and Rihanna (+ the whole Fenty Corp gang) sent Megan flowers with a note of support and admiration. Lizzo also showed her support by sending Megan a package with her favorite candies. Megan posted the gifts on her social media.

ONTD Original: 10 Iconic Songs from East Asian Dramas

If you grew up consuming East Asian content as part of the diaspora or because you lived somewhere with a lot of East Asian cultural imports (shoutout to my fellow Southeast Asians!), these songs will probably bring up lots of memories for you.

Meteor Garden (2001, Taiwan) – "Qing Fei De Yi" by Harlem Yu

As the first drama adaptation of the Boys Over Flowers manga, Meteor Garden made the smart choice of aging up their characters so that the romance takes place in a university setting. The series’ F4, played by actors Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Vanness Wu, and Ken Chu, became so popular that they continued to perform and release music in Taiwan as F4. Harlem Yu’s opening song was a cultural touchstone even for many young Asian Americans who got to see themselves represented in a modern Asian youth story. Does anyone remember Wong Fu Production’s spoof?

Toni Braxton: 'My real beauty secret? Yea ok it’s a vibrator!'

The You're Makin' Me High chanteuse divulges with viewers that she likes to use a vibrator for her face. In a new Vogue Beauty Secrets video Toni says, "I haven't used it on anything else other than my face, ok? Just FYI." After applying some eye cream, Braxton held up a large purple vibrator wand and admitted, "This thing right here, okay, I am going to admit, it is a vibrator. But I call it a face tingler."

She further explained how it works as she rubbed the top end around the contours of her face, like her cheekbones and eyes. “This has got the little ball here, which is perfect. Sometimes I put it in the freezer…this is really cold, I just kinda rub it, and it just activates all those muscles, get ‘em together. We are working today. We are gonna be cute today.”

Julianne Moore reflected on some of the "Kids are All Right" backlash 10 years later

The film has attracted backlash for featuring two straight actresses portraying LGBTQ people.
Moore’s character Jules, in fact, also engages in an extramarital affair with Ruffalo’s character.

Moore fully comprehends why the film sparked outcry.
“I can see why people took issue with a lesbian character having an affair with her sperm donor. On the other hand, I think that Jules’ character was someone described as being very fluid, sexually and personally. She was floating, in the sense of her entire identity — as a woman, as a person, in her career.”

“I’ve thought about that a lot. Here we were, in this movie about a queer family, and all of the principal actors were straight. I look back and go, ‘Ouch. Wow.’”

Moore is unsure whether heterosexual identifying actresses would have been cast in the leads today, but she’s still “grateful” for the experiences she’s had throughout her career.

Nicki Minaj's husband asks judge to allow him to be there for birth

- Kenneth Petty submitted legal docs, which TMZ obtained, which asks the judge to to modify the terms of his pretrial release conditions so he can travel with Nicki periodically on business as her manager and attend the upcoming birth of their baby.

- According to the docs, Petty wants the judge to give lieway should Nicki give birth outside his curfew hours.

- Petty says the U.S. Attorney's Office and pretrial services office don't oppose his request but it's up to the judge to sign off.


Oliver Stone says ‘cancel culture’ would end his career today

“I can tell you that if I made any of my films, I don’t think I’d last. I’d be vilified. I’d be attacked. Shamed. Whatever you want to call that … culture, cancel f–king culture. I mean, it’s just impossible. I would have had to step on so many sensitivities. You have to have some freedom to make a movie, unfortunately. You have to be rude. You can be bad. And you’re going to have do to these things like step on toes. Holy cow. Do you think I could have made any one of those films?”


Behold, the internet’s next trivial yet all-consuming debate: “Green needle or Brainstrorm?”

Move over Yanny / Laurel. A “new” viral clip that originally went viral the same year we got Yanny / Laurel (2018) has been revived on TikTok by user Emily Sophie. It features a simple question: Do you hear “green needle” or “brainstorm” while some demonic audio plays. The resurfaced clip actually comes from a 2012 video review of a toy from the children’s television show Ben 10 Alien Force. The creator of the video told The Telegraph in London that the toy is programmed to say the word “brainstorm,” but not everyone is hearing it that way. Read more here.

Still not iconic as the Dress that has it’s very own Wiki. The other girls could never.
