R29 Binge Club: House Of Cards Season 6

The king is dead; long live the queen. That is the mantra for the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House Of Cards, which arrived Friday, November 2. Clare Hale (star-executive producer-director Robin Wright) is using her maiden name — by the way, “maiden name” is a painfully outdated phrase — as the president of the United States. Claire’s husband Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) abandoned the position during 2017’s season 5, leading to Claire’s “My turn” ascendancy. Then, after Frank’s portra...

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Got Couples' Tattoos, but They're Pretty Tough to Spot

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin secretly made their bond permanent before they ever tied the knot. Celebrity tattoo artist BangBang, aka Keith McCurdy, told Page Six TV he gave the now-married couple some ink that has stayed pretty under the radar. "They each got a tattoo," revealed McCurdy. "Justin's tattoo is on his face, and I haven't seen any photos of it - so he's doing a good job of laying low." Seems like a face tattoo would be pretty hard to miss, but McCurdy clarifies the ink, locate...

Manvotional: Sitting in the Seat of Judgement

“Sitting in the Seat of Judgement” From The Crown of Individuality, 1909 By William George Jordan Character is not a simple, uniform product. It cannot be judged as dress goods—by a yard or so of sample unrolled from a bolt on the counter. It is complex, confused, uncertain, changing, subject to moods that contradict our conclusions. While knowing all this we dare to construct the whole life and character of one we may have never even met. We build it from a few hints, slurs, idle comments, ...

The only definition of ‘elite honesty’ that makes any sort of sense whatsoever

Justin Langer (via YouTube) First, some conventional honesty – albeit it’s honesty in drawing attention to some of our own dishonesty. What follows is a genuine quote from Justin Langer, but we’ve deliberately shorn it of context. You could argue that our way of using this quote misrepresents what Langer was actually trying (and failing) to convey. We would counter that by saying that this is the only way that the concept of ‘elite honesty’ makes any sort of sense whatsoever. Langer’s defin...
