Nick Gordon, Who Was Found Liable for Death of Whitney Houston’s Daughter, Found Dead at 30

(ATLANTA) — Nick Gordon, who was found liable in the death of his ex-partner Bobbi Kristina Brown, has died. He was 30. Gordon’s attorney Joe S. Habachy confirmed his client’s death in a statement Wednesday to The Associated Press. The Atlanta attorney did not give a cause of death or say where it occurred.

Megumin’s Sweet Thighs Transformed into Chocolate

A rather expressive KonoSuba fan particularly enchanted by the plump thighs of bumbling mage Megumin has molded a sweet replica of her perfect hips using some equally tantalizing chocolate. Going by the moniker of DaLinkster, the artisan thoroughly described the process of making the work of art (crafted out of white and milk chocolate) and […]

Too many choices?

  Readers of this blog know I believe that offering too many choices to your customers is a bad idea. Most studies indicate that an overabundance of options slows consumers down, and actually nets fewer sales than a simpler “which one of the two” do you want decisions. But now settle down with the soft drink of your choice and think about a multiplicity of consumer choice from Coca-Cola that is a wonderful exception to the rule. Coke’s Freestyle machine allows you to create over one hundre...

A Dispatch from Canada’s Whistler Film Festival

For nineteen years, the Whistler Film Festival has been a mountainside home for some of the best award-winning and independent cinema in the world. What started off as a small gathering has evolved in size, shifting from a place where the massive Vancouver film community would annually attend splashy parties and revel in sponsored swag rooms and habitually take over some of the village’s fanciest restaurants to something smaller in scale. With shifting economic realities and a shifting communi...

Japanese “Professor”: “Japan Needs to Stop With the Lolicon & Shotacon”

A Japanese “professor” and “translator” has generated a modicum of attention after demanding that Japan “put a stop to its lolicon and shotacon”, with their rehashed ravings typically being scorned and dismissed. The self-proclaimed professor presented their maniacal rant against the harmless medium that is fiction in both Japanese and English in an attempt to […]

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ and ‘The Mandalorian’s Approaches to Force Healing Represent Different Directions for Lucasfilm’s Future

Major spoilers for The Mandalorian  and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker below. While watching Episode 7 of The Mandalorian, my partner turned to me midway through and asked, “have we seen that before?” The moment in question was when the child (aka “Baby Yoda”) reached out to “Force heal” another character. I had, in fact, seen it before – during a press screening of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker just one day earlier. And the two properties’ differing approaches to Force healing e...

Marvel’s ‘WandaVision’ Series Will Now Arrive on Disney+ in 2020

Now that The Mandalorian has finished its first season, Disney+ has to do something to keep those millions of subscribers satiated (you know, beyond that massive catalog of classic films and such).

Opinion: RadioToday industry predictions for 2020

One thing is for sure – radio is changing at an incredible pace. Keeping up with emerging products and making full use of smart technology is key. But whilst the art of ‘input’ is changing, the ‘output’ has remained fairly static for many decades. Listeners can still hear a friendly voice on the radio at all hours of the day – the major difference is where the voice is located and when they were recorded. But let’s dig deeper down into the industry and see what 2020 might bring. Last year we ...

‘1917’ Director Sam Mendes on Collaborating with Roger Deakins and the “Unnerving” Decision to Present the Movie as a Single Shot [Interview]

1917‘s seemingly death-defying camera work from master cinematographer (and recent Oscar winner) Roger Deakins is extraordinary as it moves through varying terrains in the guise of a single take, with no place to hide lights (he’s working in natural light most of the time). The result is a powerful antiwar statement couched in a tense and emotionally gripping work, as the camera seems to hover around the action as both a ghostly observer and a character in the trenches with the film’s leads....

Cool Stuff: ‘The Mandalorian’ Funko POPs Line-Up Expands with Mandalorians, Werner Herzog & More

The line-up of Funko POPs featuring characters from The Mandalorian has been pretty small so far. The titular bounty hunter had two different variations, and back-up came in the form of IG-11, Cara Dune, and Kuiil. But now even more Mandalorians are getting the Funko POP treatment, along with new versions of Mando, fellow bounty hunters like Greef Karga and Q9-Zero, the egg-obsessed offworld Jawas, and even Werner Herzog as The Client. Check out all the new The Mandalorian Funko POPs below. ...

Nora Gross & John Jackson explore black, gay masculinity in ‘Making Sweet Tea’

Directors Nora Gross & John Jackson, Jr. Dean John L. Jackson, Jr. and his former student Nora Gross don’t seem like typical filmmakers.

‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Trailer: The Sequel to the 2018 Hit Certainly Looks Intense

A Quiet Place was one of 2018’s perfect cinematic storms. A crowd-pleasing horror adventure with a big, emotional heart. A box office smash, grossing $340 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. A critical darling that used its high concept to tremendous effect. A reminder that Emily Blunt is the profoundly talented leading lady we don’t deserve.
