Why ‘Days of Our Lives’ axing its gay characters was the worst decision ever

Daytime soap fans are as loyal as The Lord of the Rings’ Samwise Gamgee. If they weren’t, soap operas wouldn’t be be passed along from generation to generation, sometimes remaining on air and in production for more than half a century. When was the last time a primetime drama series did that? In 2020, Days of Our Lives, the longest-running of the four surviving network soaps after General Hospital, is celebrating its 55th year of love in the afternoon. To commemorate the occasion, the powers th...

Director Ryan White reveals the double-edged sword of queer representation in ‘Visible: Out on TV’

Director Ryan White Ryan White doesn’t stop. The documentarian behind The Case Against 8 and The Keepers has enjoyed two consecutive Sundance Film Festivals with new movies having their premiere. Last year, we chatted with White about his acclaimed documentary Ask Dr. Ruth. His next feature, Assassins, comes out later this year. For the moment, though, White is focused on an epic television event. We mean that in two senses of the word. As produced by Wilson Cruz & Wanda Sykes, Visible: Out o...

Essstörung: 3 Hilfsmittel, die Taylor Swift verwendet & warum sie helfen

Als echte*r Swiftie weißt du natürlich schon seit einer Weile von Taylors Essstörung. Aber ich bin mir sicher, dass dir trotzdem die Tränen in die Augen geschossen sind, als die Sängerin in Miss Americana (den du sicher längst gesehen hast und zwar nicht nur einmal) davon erzählte. Kein Wunder: Die Szenen, in denen sie sich, auf dem Rücksitz eines Autos sitzend, von ihren Problemen erzählt, sind einfach ergreifend. Während der gesamten Netflix-Dokumentation gibt es ein Thema, das immer ...

Conservative college lifts ban on same-sex couples competing in annual dance competition

Thierry Mugler's Gigeresque biomechanical jacket

Ewan Wilson spotted this remarkable jacket designed by Thierry Mugler in 1990, so odd it won its own spread (cropped above) in Elle magazine. Certainly Giger-influenced, as Wilson suggests; check out the bottle designs of Mugler's contemporary eaux de parfum Womanity and Alien [Amazon].

The Pastor’s Justification

At the end of a long day, I read these words from Jared Wilson’s book The Pastor’s Justification: Applying the Work of Christ in Your Life and Ministry: Jesus Christ alone is the hope, treasure, joy, and purpose of pastoral ministry. Not church growth, not church planting, not church success, not church business, not church programs, not church activities, not church popularity. Let everything be a means to this end: the treasuring of Christ and the enjoying of his glory. There’s nothing I...

This Recycled Textiles Keds Collaboration Is Super Limited & Selling Out Fast

Over the years, Keds has provided a (literal) canvas for some of our favorite artists and designers — in recent memory alone, Kate Spade, Dusen Dusen and Alaina Marie have adorned the sturdy cotton uppers of these iconic tennis shoes. Their newest collaboration is unquestionably a work of art, but this time the focus is fabric: cult eco-conscious indie brand Ace & Jig has re-purposed excess, intricately crafted yardage from its collection of easy-to-wear, inclusively-sized women’s separates to ...

Even After Leaving Neverland, Any Attempt To Mute Michael Jackson Will Be An Uphill Battle

It seems like there's a perfect storm brewing. On the heels of might be deemed a successful campaign to make R. Kelly face sexual assault charges and suffer the career consequences for his alleged misdeeds, another artist is facing consequences of his alleged actions posthumously. Enter the release of Leaving Neverland, the Michael Jackson documentary so devastating thanks to the detail shared by two men who claim Jackson sexually abused them as children, that Sundance had counselors on hand f...

As sports company abandons support for "smart" basketball, Nike pushes a software update that bricks its self-tying shoes

Wilson X was the sports manufacturer's entry into the market for smart basketballs, but maintaining the app that made sense of the telemetry from your sensor-equipped roundball was expensive and stupid and so the Wilson X app is no more, and the "B" in "B-ball" stands for "bricked." But wait, there's more! If you shelled out $350 for Nike's self-tying shoes, you got burned this week when Nike updated its shoe-tying app leaving it unable to pair with the shoes' "advanced power-lacing syste...

Attention is not a resource but a way of being alive to the world

'We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.' Those were the words of the American biologist E O Wilson at the turn of the century. Fastforward to the smartphone era, and it's easy to believe that our mental lives are now more fragmentary and scattered than ever. The 'attention economy' is a phrase that's often used to make sense of what's going on: it puts our attention as a limited resource at the centre of the informational ecosystem, with our various alerts and notifications l...

How Patrick Wilson prepped to fight Jason Momoa in ‘Aquaman’

The cryptic text came in 2015 from director James Wan: “Do you know Ocean Master?” Patrick Wilson did not, in fact, know Ocean Master, or whether it was a person, a cruise ship or perhaps a chain of all-you-can-eat seafood restaurants. “Luckily in this day and age, there’s Google,” Wilson says, miming furious thumb-typing as...

Could This Makeup Product Be Messing Up Your Skin?

Primer is divisive. There are those who swear by it — and have the Instagram-ready skin to prove it — and those who think the stuff is a pore-clogging, breakout-causing nightmare. To be honest, we're not entirely sure where we stand. As with all products, there are some amazing priming bases out there, but we've also fallen victim to heavy, sticky, flaky formulas. So we asked the skin pros: Could this makeup step be doing more harm than good?Ahead, we answer four of the most common questions we...

The Ultimate Guide To False Eyelashes

Whether you're blessed with naturally voluminous lashes or not, a set of lengthy or dramatic falsies can add a ton of glamour to any makeup look in a matter of seconds. But despite the adding false lashes to their beauty routines, the common misconception surrounding them is that they're difficult to apply or look too obvious.There are, however, lots of different types of false lashes that can be tailored to exactly what you're looking for, whether it's something super-natural or the total op...

Over 690 Netflix envelopes got fashioned into a fancy gown

What would you make with over 1500 Netflix DVD envelopes? Joanna Wilson of Akron, Ohio dreamed of making a dress and, as part of their 20th anniversary, the company made that happen. Since 2005, Wilson has been saving the red water-resistant envelopes because she was "originally intrigued" by their "unique texture," according to Netflix's DVD.com. By this spring, some 13 years later, she had amassed over 1556 of them. Well, Netflix celebrated their 20th anniversary this year and she shared her c...

No Color Is Off Limits For Sies Marjan — Except Maybe One

"Everything is doomed, it’s all so apocalyptic; so there’s something really nice about wearing a bright pink shirt on a day that you really feel like shit — it lifts you up." Though the shirt Lak is wearing right now is actually a baby blue tie-dye number, it's no less joyful.The designer’s optimism, charm, and lack of pretense — evidenced in his choice of attire — has garnered Si...

Nia Wilson & The Media's Portrayal Of Black Women As "Less Innocent" Victims

On Monday during a broadcast report about the murder of Nia Wilson, an 18-year-old Black woman who was stabbed to death at a Bay Area Rapid Transit train station, local Oakland station KTVU showed a photo of Wilson holding what appeared to be a gun. (Wilson was in fact holding a gun-shaped phone case.)Wilson and her sister were attacked seemingly at random by convicted felon John Lee Cowell, a white man with a history of violence. But a casual viewer may have seen the photo of Wilson — which KT...

The Pro-Approved Waterproof Eyeliners You Can Count On This Summer

You can imagine our surprise when we once heard a famous makeup artist say that she doesn't believe in waterproof eyeliner. “Who needs their makeup waterproof? It’s not like you go swimming with a full face,” she argued.She’s right about the swimming part. But as liner lovers who sweat like crazy when we work out or partake in club life, whose eyes water spontaneously and suffer from insane allergies this time of year, and who break down during emotional films (what, like you don't?), we'd argu...

Are You Using Your Concealer All Wrong?

The desire to cover our "imperfections" goes back a long way. In 18th-century England, men and women caked their faces in toxic lead-based makeup, preferring to risk death over letting their smallpox scars show; as far back as Ancient Egypt, King Tut was found to have been buried with his anti-acne treatments. You'd think even the most persistent breakouts wouldn't be able to follow you into the afterlife.But with the sheer variety of concealers on the market — liquids, creams, even powders — i...

To CGI or Not to CGI? The Debate Over Virtual Influencers

The rise of virtual influencers has sparked a debate over authenticity and intent, issues that may impact brands who partner with them. In simpler times, back in 2010, Hatsune Miku, a Japanese hologram, gave her first concert in Tokyo. The CGI pop star was ‘hired’ a year later by Japanese automaker Toyota to pitch the Corolla brand—not in Japan but in the U.S., where virtual concerts starring the blue-haired singer were staged in San Francisco and New York. The integrated campaign for Cor...
