Dyatlov Pass incident tl;dr: nine Russian hikers mysteriously died in the Ural Mountains

Using new computer simulation (based partially on animation techniques used in Disney's Frozen) scientists now think it was a small ice avalanche that destroyed their camp

the avalanche theory previously got dismissed because the topography did not seem right for it, but the new calculations say it is possible

A sudden avalanche out of ice blocks would explain the blunt force trauma injuries

K-Pop singer under fire for posing with Nazi mannequin

Sowon (age 25) of the K-Pop girlgroup GFRIEND has been embroiled in a scandal after she uploaded lovey-dovey pictures of herself with a life-size mannequin wearing a Nazi uniform on her Instagram account. She quickly deleted the pictures and explained it was because she was afraid her fans would get jealous.

Fans later discovered that this wasn't the group's first incident: In a 2016 livestream, bandmate SinB explained that she has saved Sowon as "Kitler" in her phone, a play on her real name Kim Sojung and H*tler.

Neither Sowon, GFRIEND's company Source Music nor their parent company Big Hit Entertainment have issued a statement so far.

Gordon Ramsay Responds To A Vegan TikToker’s Song About Not Eating Meat By Eating A Burger

Chef Gordon Ramsay has become a well known TikToker featuring many food videos (mostly meat related) and for roasting home cooks on his account. An outspoken yet controversial TikToker, That Vegan Teacher (Miss Kadie), decided to call out Gordon for using his platform to promote meat-eating. She sings, “Eating animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay / Hurting animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay / And if you call me a ‘donut,’ that’s fine, as long as you’re vegan from now on.”

The disgraced chef responded by posting a duet in which he at first eats lettuce, but then spits it out, calls her a “vegan doughnut” and then pulls out a burger and takes a bite.

Ohhhh. What a ~sick burn bro.

The clip has since gone viral with over 48 million views.

Evan Rachel Wood Alleges Marilyn Manson Abused Her

Wood and Manson’s relationship became public in 2007 when she was 19 and he was 38.
They became engaged in 2010, but broke up later that year.

Evan Rachel Wood has alleged that Marilyn Manson is the person to whom she has referred over the years when she has talked about being a survivor of domestic violence.

“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge – February

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

[Casino Royale] James Bond

Could Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page be the next Bond?

* Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page is already contending with rumors that he might be the next James Bond;
* He’s currently 5/1 in the betting; before Bridgerton’s Christmas Day release, he was 40/1;
* Tom Hardy still leads the way as favorite, with James Norton close behind in second place;
* "I think the internet thinks a lot of things, and that's one of the more pleasant ones. So I can please as far as that goes."
* "if you're a Brit, and you do something of any kind of renown, that people regard well, then people start saying the 'B' word. It's like a merit badge, you get the 'B' word merit badge."

K-Pop label apologies after singer posted pictures with a Nazi mannequin

Update on this post: K-Pop singer under fire for posing with Nazi mannequin

Yesterday, Sowon of the K-Pop group GFRIEND uploaded two pictures onto her Instagram account standing next to a life-size Nazi mannequin. She quickly deleted the pictures so her fans wouldn't get jealous.

Her label Source Music has now posted an apology on their fancafé (where only registered members are able to read and comment):

Hello, this is Source Music.

We would like to sincerely apologize for causing controversy with the behind the scenes VCR of GFRIEND’s comeback show and the photo uploaded by Sowon.

In November 2020, a staff from an external broadcast station rented out a cafe in Paju to shoot the VCR for GFRIEND’s comeback show. Our staff also filmed video there for our behind the scenes clips and photos for the members’ social media.

The staff member in charge did not recognize there was an issue with the mannequin’s attire during the on-site inspection carried out on the day of the filming. Since then, a behind the scenes video was uploaded on December 12, and a picture was uploaded on January 31, and both underwent internal inspection before being released, but they were uploaded without the problem being noticed.

We apologize that we were not able to check in advance that there were inappropriate props at the filming location, for not thoroughly inspecting the filming process and uploading the content, and not paying enough close attention to societal issues and historical facts. We would like to bow our heads in apology to those who may have felt uncomfortable with the video and picture.

The problematic parts of the video have been corrected. Sowon was also very surprised to learn about the meaning of the photo, and deleted it immediately. She feels deeply responsible for posting such a photo.

We will make sure to note how the content we produce and share can affect many people, and pay attention to social issues more in the future.

Once again, we sincerely to those who may have been hurt by the photo or video.

Kanye West is facing class-action lawsuits from hundreds of Sunday Service employees

Per The Sun, Kanye West is facing two class action lawsuits.

The lawsuits were filed last summer in Los Angeles and involve around 800 performers from his Sunday Service. Lawyers tell the Sun that they believe at least 1000 employees will become apart of the lawsuit. The performers and crew claim they were mistreated or not paid.

One performer, Michael Pearson, claimed he was paid a flat $250 day rate “regardless of the number of hours worked,” and he was not permitted a meal or restroom breaks. He also said that he was “forced to stand or sit on the ground” before walking home when transpiration wasn’t provided.

The second lawsuit is from August 2020. MyChannel, Inc. is suing West for more than $20 million, accusing him of abandoning the partnership and stealing its technology for Sunday Service and his Yeezy line.

Cartoonist Adam Ellis has his art stolen, turned into a film.

Adam Ellis is an illustrator who has worked with Buzzfeed, and creates his own comics - he regularly posts them on Instagram, and has also published a book of his work.

Keratin is a 2020 short film, about "an isolated man's ritualistic pursuit of creation in the heart of a dark, dense forest." It was written and directed by Andrew Butler and James Wilson. And guess what? They stole it.

An account on Film Twitter posted an interview with Butler and Wilson, and today, Adam Ellis retweeted it, stating that the film is actually a shot-for-shot copy of one of his comics. They didn't ask for permission to use his work, and actually only told Adam about it when they wanted him to help promo it so they had a better shot at awards.

Jason Thorpe, the star of the film, has also spoken out on Twitter saying that he had no idea the work was stolen, and that Adam deserves credit.

Butler and Wilson have since either deleted or made their social media private. The original interview with them has been deleted, and the film's IMDb page is now filled with 'trivia' such as "Oops! The filmmakers accidentally on purpose stole the plot from an Adam Ellis comic."

Going to assume they're watching their shot at awards drop pretty quickly.

Rose McGowan stands up for Evan Rachel Wood

After Evan Rachel Wood and at least four other women have come forward with allegations of abuse from Marilyn Manson, Rose McGowan posted a video on her twitter in response. She says she is very proud that Evan has come forward and of anyone who stands up against their abusers.

While she says he was not abusive with her during their relationship, "that has no bearing on whether he was like that with others before or after". Rose also calls out Manson's record label, pr people, agents, and lawyers who were all aware of what he is and yet did nothing about it.

A follow-up to this post:

While everyone was hoping for a new project or a 4th season of Twin Peaks, David Lynch ended up trolling everyone:

But he read the comments from the nice people who follow him, and decided that he will continue to give his reports.
