But maybe, just maybe, those New Mutants will have their day. According to Boone, a new New Mutants trailer is going to drop sometime in January. In addition to that, New Mutants comics artist Bill Sienkie...

Fyre Festival meets Mr. Bone Saw

Social media influencers have been known to promote events around the world for the right price — decisions that sometimes prove to be mistakes.

The eagle and the sunrise.

The eagle was perched on the same branch where I'd seen him before. Later, as I was leaving, I saw that he'd moved to the other side of his tree... ... and later, as I was running back toward the beach, he swooped across the path in front of me and flew ahead to perch in a tree where I imagined he intended to keep an eye on me. That does not mean that I imagine he likes me. I imagine he dislikes me. I visualize him dive bombing with outstretched talons and ripping off half my face. But the inte...
