A White House lawyer reportedly tried to get The Wall Street Journal to scoop Hunter Biden's emails

The Wall Street Journal published a short article Thursday night on Hunter Biden's business dealings that concluded: "Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no role for Joe Biden." The same night, the Journal published an opinion piece that asserted the Democratic presidential nominee had been aware of and/or involved in his son's business endeavors, about 24 hours after Breitbart News published a statement from a former Hunter Biden business partner, Tony Bobulinksi....

Netflix’s Signature Launch Sound Was Almost the Bleating of a Goat

Whenever you watch a Netflix original movie or TV show, there’s that signature sound that plays when the steaming service’s logo appears. The recognizable sound is known in Netflix’s offices as “Ta Dum,” but it was almost something that would have been easier to describe and a lot more odd. Todd Yellin, Netflix’s VP of Product, recently revealed that one of the options considered for Netflix’s production logo was the bleating of a goat. While appearing on the podcast Twenty Thousand Hertz (v...

Fighting American #5 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby Fighting American v1 #5, 1954 - On the cover, Fighting American and sidekick Speedboy seem almost casual in their last minute rescue.
