An investigation into the lack of kissing in the Marvel Cinematic universe


source

Polygon looks at every MCU kiss

- For having so many movies there are just not a lot of kisses and romance in the MCU (polygon only counts the movies and the D+ shows as MCU canon)

- even the main couples do not kiss each other a lot

- the few kisses between not established pairs are not framed as romantic

- all kisses have been between a man and a woman and MJ/Peter & T’Challa/Nakia are the only not white on white kisses

- even WandaVision, a whole show about one couple is weirdly sexless

- but why? because it is aimed at kids? the Harry Potter movies had a lot more snogging

- violence is ok tho!

Disney Imagineering’s Project Kiwi made a Baby Groot



You can watch it fall over at 0:34 in.

So during a private shareholder's thing a few weeks ago, Chairman of Parks and Experiences Josh D'Amaro may have whipped out a real lightsabre, but that was shrouded in secrecy, so here, have the walking robot they made instead.

From Tech Crunch:

“Project KIWI started about three years ago to figure out how we can bring our smaller characters to life at their actual scale in authentic ways,” Scott LaValley says. “It’s an exciting time for bipedal robotics and with an incredible team and our combination of technology, artistry, and magic, we are bringing characters to life that could not have happened anywhere but Disney.”

Disney + teams up with plant influencer for earth month



In honor of Earth Month, Brooklyn-based, Plant Kween, partnered with Disney+ for a collaboration of plants inspired by his favorite Disney films. Matching a Disney film to a plant, along with care tips for said plant. A boom in indoor houseplants due to the pandemic sprouted across all demographics, but millennials and Gen z gained reputation for being plant-crazy.

Aladdin x snake plant
It reminds him of Jafar and his snake affection: "When it comes to the snake plant, over-watering is a common mistake, so always check the soil before you water it to ensure the soil is dry. Although it's marketed as a low light plant, the snake plant does best in bright light and can do a few hours of direct sun."

The Aristocats x Staghorn Fern
Rich cat ladies would have it since they’re non toxic for their feline pets: "Placing it in the shower and letting tepid water run over the antler frond and shield frond is the best way to care for it. Loves bright filtered light."

Coco x Monstera
Since it hails from the tropical rainforests of Mexico: "Resilient and adaptable. Bright, indirect sunlight and thrives best in the 65-to-70 degree temp range. A tropical, so loves humidity! Invest in a humidifier, place it near it, and will be serving lush lewks. Water weekly in warmer months and every 2-to-3 weeks in colder months, allowing the soil to dry out in between waterings."

The Jungle Book x Ficus Benghalensis
Taking place in the tropics of India and this green is not only native to India but is also the national tree of India: "These thrive in bright warm scene, so give a lot of light with a few hours of direct sunlight if you can. Place in a spot that is free of cold drafts and get a humidifier or place in a bright bathroom."

Spotify to Launch Podcast Subscriptions




Won't take a cut from creators, unlike apple, who, and I quote "Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, as is the case under existing App Store policies, the tech giant will keep 30% of podcast-subscription fees in the first year and 15% in subsequent years. On top of that, creators must pay $19.99 per year to gain access to the Apple Podcasters Program, which includes tools required to offer premium subscriptions on Apple Podcasts. Pricing is set by creators (and billed monthly by default)." PHEW my god.


Spotify wants to be the premiere service for podcasts - They already have exclusive ones from  Joe Rogan and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and now they could keep the money they earn from subscriptions.

Adult Man Complains About Disney World Being too "Woke" in Orlando Sentiel Piece




Yet another old white person with too much money and no sense at all complains about Disney being inclusive. Yes, he is a Christian, conservative republican...from Las Vegas.

Bitches about changes to attractions, like removing Trader Sam from Jungle Cruise. OP has never been on it, but anything that makes this man upset it's gone is probably good that it's gone. "It is no more based in racism than every Disney caricature of an out-of-touch white American dad." Well thanks, Christian, Conservative Republican.

This man is so extremely protective about human slavery being removed from Pirates of The Carribean, he - gasps - won't go on Pirates each time he and his family vists!

Dustin Milligan Says He’d Sweat So Much On Schitt’s Creek, He’d Put Paper Towels Under His Armpits




Celebrities sweat just like us!

In a new interview with BuzzFeed, Dustin Milligan, who portrayed Ted Mullens throughout the show’s six seasons, shared one of his most embarrassing moments from the first season.

“Here’s something fun and completely embarrassing that happened in the first seasons, then, for some reason, it went away,” he says. “I’m a human being and that means that I sweat sometimes. There’s a lot of scenes in Schitt’s Creek where you may not notice this, but I’ve got paper towels crammed into my armpits. Our lovely costumer on the show would have a hairdryer ready to go, so in-between takes, I’d be standing there getting my armpits blown. I think a lot of people wouldn’t have been able to spot any sort of TV movie magic going on there. Definitely desperately avoiding any indication that I’m human and that I perspire.”

He continues, “There was actually a moment on a very hot day outside the motel, Annie [Murphy] turned around and was like, ‘I’m so proud of you!’ And I was just like, ‘What?’ Then she pointed to my armpits and said, ‘Look at that, they’re dry!’ She was very supportive.”

He added, “I just feel like I run hot. There’s been takes before where sweat has dripped from my eyebrows, down into my tear duct, and out down my face. Everyone’s like, ‘Oh my god, I couldn’t believe you produced that single tear at that moment! It was so beautiful.’ Yes, single tear. Of course. I’m a good actor! Not sweaty.”

You can catch Dustin Milligan on his new show, Rutherford Falls, now streaming on Peacock. And you can read the full interview at the source.

For All Mankind’s season 2 finale "is a nearly perfect wrap of a terrific season"

For All Mankind's season 2 finale was released on AppleTV+ today.

It's an alternate history series exploring space.

Showrunner Ron Moore broke down five reasons why the finale was "fantastic."

One of them is that "Every single storyline from this season pays off in the finale."

So what happened?

[Spoilers]Cosmonauts attempt to take over the American moon base after Marines on the moon killed a cosmonaut two episodes prior and brought a second injured cosmonaut - who now wants to defect - back to their base for treatment.

US and USSR come together for a "handshake in space" to try and ease international tensions. Go, Dani!

Astronaut Ed Baldwin fires missiles at the U.S.'s Sea Dragon rocket to avoid getting in a space fight with the Soviets over in another shuttle.

[And a big one:]Gordo and Tracy Stevens sacrifice themselves for their fellow astronauts and for the future of space exploration on the moon.


And lots more. It was pretty packed.
