It's Light Out and Andiamo! Here's the Formula 1 Imola Grand Prix Viewing Post (Grazie Ragazzi!) 🇮🇹



Name of the race track: Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari
Y'all, the official name of this race is the: Pirelli Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell'Emilia Romagna. Nickname is Imola

Imola GP Snapple Fact: Last year, for much of the grid, even the veterans, that was their first time on this track since it hadn't been used since 2006. At the time, the only drivers who have raced on it are Kimi Raikkonen (at McLaren, now at Alfa Romeo) and Fernando Alonso (at Renault, now at Renault). This track also served as the host of the Italian and San Marino Grands Prix.

On a heavier note, it should be noted that back in 1994, this track is where we lost the lives of two Formula 1 drivers of Brazilian WDC Aryton Senna and Austrian F1 rookie Roland Ratzenberger.

The race is an hour earlier due to Prince Philip's funeral, so tune in at 8:55 AM EST.

Mark Hamill Comments On Viral Mystery Animal In A Tree That Turned Out To Be A Croissant



A woman in Kraków, Poland called her local animal help center (Kraków Animal Welfare Society) and reported a strange animal (possibly an iguana) in a tree near her home.

The woman told officials, “It's been sitting in a tree across the house for two days! People don’t open windows because they’re afraid it’s going to enter their house!”

When they arrived to check on this menacing creature, it turned out it was just a croissant chilling in a tree.

Welp. It’s butter to be safe than sorry.

I’ll let myself out.

It is unclear how the croissant ended up there, but some theorized the croissant was thrown out of a window as a treat for birds in the area and ended up getting stuck in the tree.

Who can never be sure.

Hightower's attorney, dismissed his claims of poverty, De Niro spent $450,000 on a summer rental in 2019, $150,000 on a Thanksgiving vacation and $1 million on his adult children in 2019 and 2020, $50,000 for a private jet for the weekend.

Justin Bieber Forgets To Continue Performing During Triller Fight Club Event




Biebs forgot he still had one more song to perform last night at Triller’s Fight Club event aka that stupid YouTube boxing match between certified Trash Jake Paul and Ben Askren.

Other performers included The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Major Lazer and more. Guess celebs will do anything for a cheque.

Jeffree Star Faking Recent Car Accident for Publicity?

The Internet started buzzing after the makeup mogul uploaded photos of his damaged Rolls Royce after allegedly hitting black ice and flipping 3 times.

However in the photos shared after the accident Jeffree and his friend don't appear to have one single scratch or bruise after the horrific crash.

Originally Jeffree was in the hospital bed with a neck brace with his friend along side him. Shortly after uploaded another photo in which his friend was now in the bed and he was along side him in a back brace.

Jeffee also claims to have injured his back during the accident however was up and walking around the hospital room taking videos for social media.

They also weirdly filmed some videos in the hospital to promote Jeffree's latest YouTube video that was originally supposed to be uploaded a few hours before the accident.

Then of course in true Jeffree Star fashion... this morning he's tweeting and promoting his latest product launch which to no surprise is in a few days.

The Wall Street Journal talks about how kpop reinvented virtual concerts during covid (Ft SHINee)

In the video , WSJ goes behind the scenes to a SHINee concert and to see how kpop groups are reinventing the way to make virtual concerts .




- Global revenue by concerts last year dropped 70% because of the pandemic.

- Kpop companies are trying to find ways to reboot the concert industry in the middle of a pandemic that is still far from ending (at least in some countries)

- Dream Maker Entertainment works with SM Entertainment for their Beyond Live Concerts, they create stage designs using immersive technologies that enhance visual effects in online concerts.

- The Dream Maker CEO says they want to deliver a show that can't be pulled off at a live offline concert, so it's a different experience.

- DME has produced 11 of these shows for kpop bands like: TWICE, NCT , Super Junior, and others.

- This is also a good alternative for international fans of those kpop bands , that won't be able to see their favorite group in an offline concert because they don't go to their countries.

- There are new revenue opportunities because they sell cheaper tickets to a bigger audience (SHINee's Beyond Live concert sold 130k tickets)

- SME CEO didn't say how much were the profits but he said the venture has been economically viable.

It's Official: Skinny Jeans are Dead. Long Live Mom Jeans.

jeans ontd.png

The New York Times has declared that skinny jeans are over.

Gen Z girls prefer high-waisted, loose-fitting, straight-legged jeans. Many people refer to this style as "mom jeans" after the popular SNL spoof. Men's jeans are also becoming looser, resembling Barack Obama's "dad jeans."

Skinny jeans still make up 34% of the jeans market, and it's amazing that they have lasted for more than a decade.



What type of jeans do you prefer?

American Society of Cinematographers honours "Mank"; "The Queen's Gambit" sweeps



In the final pre-Oscar weekend, Hollywood's remaining guilds got their awards out, chief among them the American Society of Cinematographers, which was in the tank for Mank (shoulda known by having his grandson host again!).

On the TV side, awards went to The Crown, The Mandalorian, Motherland: Fort Salem (which this user had never heard of before, but it beat Better Call Saul), and The Queen's Gambit, which completed a historic sweep of the guild awards this weekend, something only previously done by the final season of Breaking Bad. Some of its wins this weekend were a particular show of strength since, due to different nomination windows, it beat last year's juggernaut Watchmen not just at the ASC but with the American Cinema Editors and the Cinema Audio Society. As Walter White would say, nothing stops this train.

The Fútbol Girls Are Fighting and Spoiler Alert (It Involves Money)



- Umm, lemme preface, I'm American
- however, football is the biggest sport in the world
- so some of the biggest teams in the sport with scullions of dollars have decided to make their own league with their own competition(????). The established leagues are FIFA and the UEFA
- Here are the clubs who are a part of this: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan, Juventus, AC Milan, Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid. You've probably heard of some of these names even if you didn't follow the sport
- "UEFA also reiterated that any clubs involved in a Super League would be banned from all other domestic, European and world competitions, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams." and continued:

"We thank those clubs in other countries, especially the French and German clubs, who have refused to sign up to this. We call on all lovers of football, supporters and politicians, to join us in fighting against such a project if it were to be announced. This persistent self-interest of a few has been going on for too long. Enough is enough."



- not sure how this idea has sprung but it sounds like: 💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰
- I mean JP Morgan Chase, the bastion of integrity, has given $6B to the project
- apparently this Super League idea has been sort of fiddled with for over 20 years
- Some reactions around the world: Fooking wankers! Tu madre es may feo! Cazzo!
- OP is still trying to understand what the hell is happening, but wanted to make a post so people can discuss
