'EVANGELION' finally came to an end after 26 years... How did it end (again)?

The fourth and final Evangelion movie 'Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a time' premiered yesterday closing everything up and putting in the world what's probably the last piece of Evangelion ever.

So... how did it end? Well, confusing as fuck. It wouldn't be Evangelion if it were simple, but here's a brief rundown of what happened:

[Spoiler (click to open)]- The world is basically destroyed but small villages have survived where they're protected from the debris of the impact due to some tech.
- Shinji, Rei and Asuka have stayed young while everyone else kept growing old. Shinji's friends from school are all grown up and they take Asuka and Rei to live with them. The whole first arc is about them living their normal life.
- Shinji gets to meet Koji and Misato's son. She gave him up 14 years ago.
- Misato and Ritsuko fix their big ass ship, they go down to earth to try to destroy the 13th eva but NERV almost takes them down.
- Mari and Asuka manage to almost take NERV down, but the EVA 02 goes down, Asuka's soul disappears. And Gendo, who's now a weird ass thing without eyes cause he said bye to his humanity, tries to start the 4th impact while he's on a different universe or some shit.
- Mari takes Shinji to this other universe while Misato and Ritsuko turn their ship in a huge ass lance to stop the 4th impact. Misato dies getting the lance to Shinji.
- Shinji takes Eva 01 and Gendo takes it's twin, the Eva 13, and they lipsync fight for their lives. They fight in the alt universe and it's weird as fuck cause they fight on the movie set, which i guess is kinda meta, but they also fight in common locations from the tv show.
- Shinji understands that his dad is a fucking simp that did all of this to say goodbye to his mom.
- Shinji uses the final lance to kill all the Evas at once (which is a pretty cool scene).
- Shinji talks and releases the souls of Asuka, Gendo, Rei and Kaworu.
- There are some weird animation choices but many years have passed, society has been rebuilt and Mari and Shinji meet on a train station, and they're kinda together...i think? The final shot is them running away from the train station...on live action... idk...

Japanese idol Kannagi Maro victim of "Power Harassment" by fellow member of ZOC, Seiko Oomori

ZOC is a Japanese idol group produced by Seiko Oomori. She is also a member of the group along with Kannagi Maro.

Left: Kannagi Maro, Right: Seiko Oomori

There was an audio leak on August 13th, 2021 by a twitter user of two women and a man having a discussion about a disagreement the two women were having. The man is presumed to be a staff member.

Oomori had recently revealed in a LINE chat that fans focusing only on the visuals of group ZOC made her angry and suicidal. Kannagi Maro tweeted that she likes being praised for her visuals and feels that the praise is different from lookism. According to the audio, Oomori took this as a direct affront.

The audio clip is somewhat of a "slow burn" until Oomori escalates at the 3:50 mark and verbally berates Kannagi Maro, accusing her of trying to play the victim. Allegedly there was physical harm done, but as it is only audio, there is no concrete evidence of this.

One of Kannagi Maro's former producers of Hello! Project, Tsunku, got directly involved by retweeting a fan's anger by questioning what had happened. He made no further comment afterwards.

Trigger Warning for loud verbal abuse, Source 1 features the original audio clip and Source 4 is a transcript of the audio in English.

Second Half of Gossip Girl (2021) Season One to Premiere in November

The second half of Gossip Girl's first season will return in November with the remaining seven episodes. The midseason premiere will be a Thanksgiving episode.

Creator Joshua Safran states that there will be no cotillion storyline or appearances by the "core" five or six characters from the original this season.

[Midseason Finale Recap]Max brushed off Rafa's advances in light of last week's revolutions and Rafa decides to retaliate against the the 17 year old

  • Rafa met up with one of Max's dads for drinks and sent him a photo as proof

  • Max's dad states that they did not have sex, just drinks at the bar

  • Rafa, back in the creepy Gossip Girl teacher gang, posts of photo of Max at the hospital waiting for Audrey to imply that he was seeking testing/treating for a STI

  • Max sends Gossip Girl a video clip DM of he and Rafa having sex

  • Kate and the infatuated white male teacher open the video, scream, and then notice that it was deleted - likely by Rafa

  • Also - I thought Carla from Top Chef was possibly Max's mother but it appears she is the family's personal chef, I hope they are paying her well

Obie's mother is in town and Obie lies to Zoya about telling his mother that he has a new girlfriend

  • Zoya ends up at dinner with Obie, Obie's mom, Aki, Audrey, Aki's mother, and Malcom McDowell

  • Zoya learns that Obie has a completely different, passive personality in front of his mother to stay in her good graces

After tense conversations over Malcom McDowell's unethical tactics and his right wing media company, Audrey lets it slip to the group that Aki is not straight

Audrey's mother wakes up and reunites with her daughter, who has been rightfully worried but also very rude to the hospital staff in this post-COVID alternate universe

  • As a thank you to "her two men" Max and Aki for supporting her while her mother was unconscious, Audrey presents them with a nice lamb dinner and then they proceed to have a poorly lit threesome.

NOTE: This is not Elite, so everything is thankfully tame for a scene with three teenagers.


Julien did not perform as expected on the PSATs and receives a lightweight warning from Luke Kirby about her uncertain future as an influencer

  • She and Luna (Mone is MIA this week and likely plotting somewhere) host a pitch meeting with several companies including Sephora, Ulta, and Revlon as a way to show Luke Kirby that she is serious about her influencer position becoming a career

  • A protest against Obie's family real estate business is occurring and both Julien and Zoya show up to support Obie who is naturally there

  • Zoya ends up arriving later than Julien and misinterprets ~a moment~ between the two

  • Sephora calls up Julien to rescind their partnership offer due to her presence at the protest

  • Julien and Obie get horned up during the protest and start making out in an alleyway after running away from the cops

Malcom McDowell outs Aki on television but a calm and collected Aki takes it in stride and corrects the media in that he is not gay, but bisexual

  • He calls Aki from his private plane to offer a lame apology and also orders him to stay away from Julien (we don't know if it is because of the protest or something else...)

ontd original: Why you should give Sony's "Vivo" a Look

Starring Lin Manuel Miranda and Zoe Saldana...wait, I'm supposed to convince you to watch the movie, not ignore it.

Let me start again.

Starring Nicole Byer, Bryan Tyree Henry, and other people you may recognize, Vivo is Sony Pictures Animation's 3rd movie of 2021 and the second one to be sold to Netflix in wake of 2020 Events.

“Stranger Things” Actor Joe Keery Doesn’t Wash His Hair & Rarely Touches It

GQ writes, “He doesn’t wash his hair. He rarely even touches it, except during moments of contemplation, when his fingers will comb the fallen front strands back into an upward swell that maintains an anime level of consistency. He does not ‘get’ haircuts in the way most people get haircuts - by asking for and then paying for them. Haircuts simply happen to him, in the way a belly rub happens to a dog on a walk.”

On his infamous bowl cut: “It didn't go over well,” he says. GQ mentioned that people online were threatening to dox the hairstylist responsible. “I saw some funny photos of it, and apparently I looked like a fucking idiot. But that's okay. I think it's good for everybody to look like an idiot at some point.”

He says he turned down a “bunch of money” to endorse a hair-care brand. “I think it would just be so lame for the majority of people,” he says. “It would be a sellout move. Don't you think?”

In his GQ Undercover video, Keery says he’s aware his character (Steve Harrington) is in the popular asymmetrical horror video game, “Dead By Daylight,” but admits he hasn’t played it yet. He added that if he were to play the game, he’d play Natalia Dyer’s character (Nancy).

You can read his full interview with GQ here. More behind the cut.

Broadway actress Laura Osnes fired from show after refusing to get vaccinated

  • Laura Osnes of Broadway and Lifetime movie fame was fired from a local, one-night only production of Crazy For You at the Guild Hall in East Hampton for not being vaccinated

  • The theatre requires all of its staff and performers to be vaccinated or present negative Covid tests, but Osnes, who describes herself as a Christian conservative, reportedly doesn't trust the vaccine

  • Osnes's co-star Tony Yazbeck confronted her about the matter because he has 2 young children at home

  • Actors' Equity and Broadway theatres have similar guidelines requiring actors to be vaccinated, so I'm guessing we will not see Osnes return to the great white way any time soon

  • Sierra Boggess will replace Osnes in this production

    Vincent Kartheiser Was Subject Of Multiple Investigations Over On-Set Misconduct

    Vincent Kartheiser- of Mad Men, Angel, and HBO Max's Titans- was the subject of at least two complaints and two internal investigations during his stat on Titans. The Investigations apparently led to Vincent not being in the poster for the new season and not actively being involved in publicity for the new season. The allegations, which are believed to have included disruptive, juvenile behavior and inappropriate comments, were investigated by WBTV’s Labor Relations department.

    The first investigation was about verbal comments and outbursts and it was concluded that his behavior didn’t warrant termination but he was verbally reprimanded. Weeks later, near the end of production of the latest season, WBTV received a second complaint that also was investigated. This time, it resulted in the studio assigning someone to monitor Vincent while he was on set.

    “Vincent Kartheiser vehemently denies the allegations,” a spokesperson for Mr. Alexis Bledel said in a statement. “Warner Bros investigated this matter and made clear to Mr. Kartheiser its expectations for behavior on the set, and he agreed to comply with their directives.”

    Someone paid over $2,500 for a slice of Princess Diana's wedding cake

    Today In "Lex Luthor did not steal 40 cakes" news, It was one of four slices of cake from Princess Diana and Prince Charles' wedding (Where there were 23 wedding cakes!) nearly 40 years ago. It was owned by someone who worked for the Queen Mother and took a piece for others to enjoy...and no one did.

    It's been kept in good (well, good for an old piece of cake) condition by being wrapped and stored in a cake box.

    It is not suggested for consumption, but at least it comes with a nifty letter and a bottle of beer.

    No word from Piers Morgan on how this is Meghan's fault.

    Dr. Dre homeless daughter turns to GoFundMe

    Dr. Dre’s estranged daughter, LaTanya Young has decided to take matters into her own hands by launching a GoFundMe campaign to help get her back on her feet.

    “I think GoFundMe campaigns are for people in desperate situations and I’m in a desperate situation. I really don’t want to accept any handouts, but I appreciate anything that is offered. I have worked all my life and I know how to work for money but I’m in a difficult place right now. I believe in investing in your kids. That’s what I want to do for my kids so they are never in a position like I am right now. I know my dad is a busy man, but I hope he will see it and reach back out to me on a father-daughter level.”

    Four days after Young launched the campaign, she’s raised just $365 out of her $50,000 goal. 


    Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, are being sued by 1995 attempted rape victim

    Nicki Minaj and her husband are being sued by the woman he was convicted of trying to rape in 1995.
    She claims that they have directly and indirectly harassed her and threatened her to not speak about the incident, and she says they've inflicted emotional distress upon her as a result.

    She says this started in late 2018, with Minaj allegedly making comments about how Petty was "wrongfully accused" and claiming she had recanted her story back then ... something she denies.

    In March 2020 after Petty was arrested, she claims Minaj called her and offered to fly her and her family to L.A. in exchange for recanting her rape claims against Petty and helping him out.

    She declined and she and her family "suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits."
    Nicki had people reach out to her brother and offer a $500k payment in exchange for a statement recanting her rape allegations against Petty.

    Nicki sent lawyers to her home to try to pressure her into recanting her story, and she began to panic and feel unsafe because she was being harassed at home.

    One more alleged cash bribe offer of $20k and another alleged threat to her safety, she moved from her home in August 2020 and continues to live in fear.


    ‘Y: The Last Man’ Team on Exploring Gender and Identity in FX on Hulu Adaptation

    The show, based on the graphic novels of the same title, is set in a world where an extinction-level event wiped out all of the individuals with Y chromosomes — except for two: the titular man, Yorick, and his monkey.

    Showrunner Eliza Clark :
    “Yorick’s maleness is not what sets him apart in this world — it’s his Y chromosome that sets him apart. Gender is diverse and chromosomes are not equal to gender. And so, in our world — in the world of the television show — every living mammal with a Y chromosome dies. Tragically, that includes many women; it includes non-binary people; it includes intersex people. … We are making a show that affirms that trans women are women, trans men are men, non-binary people are non-binary, and that is part of the richness of of the world we get to play with.”

    FX chairman John Landgraf  :
    “There are women with two X chromosomes, men with an X and a Y chromosome … women with two Y chromosomes and there are men with two X chromosomes. So…there are numerous men in the show who have two X chromosomes; they’re important characters.”


    Lorde Slams 'Insulting' Insinuations that She 'Made a Jack Antonoff Record': 'I Made a Lorde Record'

    In an interview for The New York Times, Lorde, 24 years old, talks about working with producer Jack Antonoff and people having the notion that she's one of several female musicians in "Jack's stable". (Jack also work as a producer with Lana del Rey, Taylor Swift and Clairo)

    I haven’t made a Jack Antonoff record,” she said about her upcoming album, Solar Power. “I’ve made a Lorde record and he’s helped me make it and very much deferred to me on production and arrangement. Jack would agree with this. To give him that amount of credit is frankly insulting.”

    She does recognize that Antonoff' as a producer has certain trademarks, but that she has full control and direction over what her music sounds like.

    I know that there are certain hallmarks of what Jack does and some of those things I really love and some of them I don’t like," she said. "And I beat them out of the work that we do together."

    She also called the rumours that they dated "retro" and "sexist"

    Solar Power is set to release on August 20
