The secret lives of us

"In May this year, former AFL player and coach Dean Laidley was publicly humiliated after an arrest for stalking. Police officers shared photos that leaked into the social media maw showing the sportsman dressed in a wig and women’s clothing. Laidley’s case will be heard later this year, but I don’t know anyone who wasn’t dismayed by the online photographs and sympathetic to him."

Did anyone feel sorry for Harvey Weinstein when his secret as a serial sexual harasser and rapist leaked? "He had got away with it for years, kept aloft on a tsunami of Hollywood success and seeming riches. He could make people’s careers and unbreak them, as actor Ashley Judd attested. A New York judge sentenced him to 23 years in jail and he faces more charges in California."
"Without ever articulating it, society has made a judgment call. If your secret hurts no one but yourself – and, of course, the people who care about you and don’t want to see you suffer – we will, unless we’ve had a compassion bypass, be more likely to commiserate than jeer. But if your secrets benefit you at a cost to others, or give you power over people, or allow you to trick, humiliate or abuse them, we will feel very differently."

Christopher Eccleston announces return to Doctor Who after 15 years (for 12 new episodes!)

- In today news you weren't expecting... After 15 years, Christopher Eccleston is coming back to Doctor Who for 12 brand new episodes. “After 15 years it will be exciting to revisit the Ninth Doctor’s world, bringing back to life a character I love playing,” Eccleston said in a press release.
- A bit of a catch tho... they're only audio dramas (i'll take what i can get tho) to start airing in May 2021.
- Eccleston left the show at the end of Season 1 due to bad relationships with the EP and the way he run things, and was pretty vocal about never playing the role again, so this is a big surprise for fans.
- Also, a lot of people are taking this as him making peace with the DW team, and a sign that he could return for 2023's 60 Anniversary Special.


ONTD, are you excited for Eccleston's return?

ONTD Original: Underrated Broadway Bops

1. Easy To Be Hard - Hair

This is the Cheryl Barnes version and the Cheryl Barnes version ONLY. This woman is the most underrated performer in the Musical genre. She owned this song. None of the white girls who sing this song in the stage production can even come close to what Cheryl did! She did this entire scene in one take and that's the take we see in the movie.

Cheryl was working as a maid in a motel when she went to audition for this part with no agent. After she was done filming Hair, she went to Barstow to become a piano teacher. She maintained a friendship with Hair director Milos Forman and accompanied him to Prague when he filmed Amadeus.

ONTD Original - SOME Reasons Why Jurassic Park Is The Most Iconic Movie Ever. Fact.

Ah, Jurassic Park (1993). The movie that really put dinos on the map. Maybe. When it first hit theaters in the 90s, it was #1 in the box office for three weeks straight. Inspired by last night's Netflix party, I wanted to state a few reasons why I thought it deserved all the accolades, praise and its place in history.

Keep in mind, this is purely based on the Spielberg movie, NOT the original Chrichton book, which I have not yet read.

Commedian Bernie Mac died 12 years Ago Today

Bernie Mac was known for his standup and shows like "The Bernie Mac Show" and "Moesha", and movies like "Mr. 3000" and the, frankly Iconic, "Guess Who" remake. His last movie was "Soul Men", which had Isaac Hayes in a role (Who would die the day after Mac).

src / 2

NegrONTD, does anyone else just forget he's gone and then get sad when you remember.

I remember waking up at like 2 AM to see Larry King on CNN talking about his friend Bernie Mac being sick and hoping he got well soon. I went to bed again and woke up to find he had died.

I used to live out in the desert as a kid on a military base, and occasionally they'd have celebrities come out and play games for us. I saw Mr. Mac at a distance, and my father (who volunteered at the events) says he was a nice guy.

Terry Crews was also there.

Carole Baskin Bashes Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion's 'Lurid' Music Video for 'WAP' & 'Big Cat Pimps'

'Tiger King' star Carole Baskin called out Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" video for its use of exotic cats. While acknowledging that the cats were green-screened in, she noted that "you have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn't happen in the wild"; "It can't happen in sanctuaries like ours where cats have plenty of room to avoid a green screen (or would shred it if offered access and could die from ingesting it). That tells me they probably dealt with one of the big cat pimps, who makes a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio. That's never good for the cat."

"The worst part is that it glamorizes the idea of rich people having tigers as pets," Baskin explained. "That makes every ignorant follower want to imitate by doing the same. After tigers are too old for pay to play sessions by people like Joe Exotic, Bhagavan Antle, Marc McCarthy, Mario Tabraue and others, they become a liability instead of an asset. While I think most are destroyed behind closed gates at that point, some end up being given away to people who want to have a tiger to show off. That never works out and the cats either die or end up dumped in sanctuaries or, worse yet, breeding mills. Either way, it's always abusive to the cat."



Disney World to Shorten Theme Park Hours in September

Due to a lack of crowds (after all the Disheads got their fix of buying up Splash Mountain merch to resell), the Magic Kingdom will close an hour earlier in the fall.

Epcot: 11 a.m. to 7 pm.

Zendaya teases 'Euphoria' Season 2 and possible "bridge episodes" to be filmed during quarantine(?)

Zendaya discussed season 2 of Euphoria and how it was delayed. "I do miss Rue. She's like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me. There is a beautiful second season that has been written, but in order to do it the way we want to do it, we need to wait until it's safer."

She also revealed that there have been talks to film special episodes during the quarantine; "There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren't necessarily part of Season 2. So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can't wait."

Now is The Perfect Time to Get Into "Harley Quinn"

maxresdefault (4).jpg

Looking for something to watch during quarantine? You could stream "Harley Quinn." The slick, violent, tongue-in-cheek cartoon has become one of the most streamed (and pirated) TV shows during quarantine. With a growing fanbase, it has been renewed for a third season. It's available on DC Universe (or, you know, you could pirate it).

Do you watch cartoons as an adult, ONTD?

Jeffree Star returns to YouTube unscathed

...or atleast he's working really hard to make it seem so. Multiple users in the comments have complained about J* deleting comments and BLOCKING users who spoke up against him, to give the illusion that everything is fine and dandy and back to normal once again. The majority of the comments are now positive and about topics unrelated to Jeffree's offenses. Some people are even speculating that he hired bots to leave positive comments on his video.

Will Jeffree remain as popular and loved on Youtube? Or will ~cancel culture~ finally take him down?
