Jason Reynolds becomes Library of Congress' National Ambassador for Young People's Literature

Publishers Weekly has the story. Reynolds is relevant to us because he wrote a Miles Morales Spider-Man YA novel. I recommend his books though, of which I've read half of them, even though I'm a middle-aged white man. I particularly like the ones set in the high school track world. [Author: Mike Rhode]

Heroic Comics #65 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art

Heroic Comics v1 #65, 1951 - Pretending to be pirates, two boys set off on their makeshift raft, only to find real danger ahead. Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta collaborate early on in their careers, illustrating this tale with a light touch.

News Post: The Witchening

Tycho: Drake of the 99 Dragons is a time capsule from a novel era; there was a lot of stuff that hit as Xbox exclusive which was inexplicable or troubling for various reasons.  It also had bonkers shit like Splinter Cell, and credible multiplayer - graduating, ultimately, to Xbox Live, whose approach ultimately became definitional.  But Drake is a whole thing and you should look at the video.  You should also look at the Wikipedia page, specifically the credits to the right, and look those peopl...

Western “Voice Actor” Amanda Winn Lee Slanders Vic Mignogna at Con

Pitiful excuse of a human being, Amanda Winn Lee, was caught on video slandering the highly abused Vic Mignogna at a convention in the form of a “roast” (with Vic not even being present), the video naturally overflowing with fake laughing and once again serving as proof that the criminal leftists are incapable of humor.

This Woman Does Her Makeup On Edibles And I Am In Physical Pain

“I could be Pennywise’s twin sister, Quartersmart” Although makeup artists on YouTube and beauty vloggers make it look super simple, anyone who’s attempted to do their own costume makeup will tell you that it is not easy. You have to be a master of symmetry, have the patience of a saint, the precision of a surgeon, and a pretty firm grasp on shading and color theory. That’s why a lot of people go to school in order to become a pro at it, and why a lot of other folks just wear masks on Hal...

This Diner Charges Extra For ‘Stupid Questions’, Please Clap

Servers everywhere are weeping with joy I truly believe this world would be a little bit off if everyone had to work in the service industry once in their lifetime.

Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia Episode 13 Impression

On this episode, Ritsuka's party battles against Ereshkigal. Later, they have a conversation on what to do next. So it was cool to see Ritsuka and his allies fight Ereshkigal in order to solve her pain. Also, the second half after their battle is nice and is a bit shocking. Other than that, I can't wait to see the upcoming Gorgon battle soon. Now what's going to be the next plot? I'll be looking forward to it. Overall, cool Ereshkigal battle and nice after result scenes.

On this episode, Ash and his allies faces against Luther's forces. Later, Ash gains more allies to fight Luther. This particular action is really exciting because it became a huge battle between Arks due to Luther's manipulation. Also, the mix battle between the Council members is nice. Other than that, I hope Ash can stop Luther in time. Now what's going to happen next? I can't wait to find out. Overall, awesome battle between Arcs and some interesting twists.

Greta Gerwig Didn’t Get a Best Director Nod. But the Radical Triumph of Little Women Will Outlive the Oscars

In the weeks before the release of Greta Gerwig’s luminous and superbly crafted Little Women, film wonks on social media wondered aloud about its chances: Did the world really need another adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1869 novel? Would men see the title and think “girl germs”? And when the Golden Globe nominations were announced, in early December, neither Gerwig nor the film, specifically, got one. Good movies are overlooked by awards bodies all the time, but accolades still serve as ...

‘The Irishman’ Wins AARP’s “Best Movie for Grownups” Award, Because Old Folks Apparently Have Good Taste

This just in: old people love The Irishman! I know these days we all like to sit around and say “Okay, boomer!” at the olds, but in this case, let’s all agree they got something right.

Trick Daddy’s Horrifying Mugshot is Because of His Lupus, Rapper Slams Social Media for Making Fun of Him

When Trick Daddy was arrested Saturday morning (Jan. 11) for DUI and cocaine possession, everyone who saw his mugshot had the same exact question: WTF WAS UP WITH HIS FACE & HAIRLINE?! Well, apparently, it’s the result of an incurable illness he suffers from called Lupus. According to Healthline: Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes fatigue, joint pain, joint stiffness, and a butterfly-shaped rash on the face. In addition, some people with lupus experience hair loss. Not everyone with lupu...

Weekend Box Office: ‘1917’ Knocks ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Out of the Top Spot

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is no longer in first place. The weekend box office numbers are in, and it appears that Sam Mendes’ World War I epic 1917 has dethroned the final entry in the Skywalker Saga to be number one. Elsewhere in box office land, Kristen Stewart’s fun sea monster movie Underwater failed to swim and instead sank, which is a serious bummer because that movie deserves better. It was bound to happen sooner or later: Rise of Skywalker is no longer the number one movie at ...

‘Shrill’ Season 2 Trailer: Aidy Bryant Takes Risks and Takes Control

In the raging seas of Peak TV, when more than 530 scripted comedies and dramas aired last year, the Hulu series Shrill was a pleasant surprise.
