Царь, царевич, or Royal Titles in Russian

Are King Arthur and King Solomon both “коро́ль” in Russian? Why are both принц and князь used to say “prince,” and what’s the difference?

One man’s redemption and hope for revival on college campuses

I Wanted Little Mermaid Hair Color For 15 Years — Here's How It Finally Happened

Redheaded Dreams Come True I am a huge Disney nerd. When I was a kid, I would watch The Little Mermaid over and over again, until all that was left in my head were the songs and dreams of becoming Ariel. It wasn’t just that mermaids are awesome (which they are). There was something about Ariel’s transformation that kept me captivated. I was fascinated by the idea that if you want to be something bad enough, you can make it happen, but also the juxtaposition that you just might have to sac...

Why the Animation in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Looks so Revolutionary

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has shot to the top of my must-see list this winter. The film, which follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as he becomes acclimated to his new spider powers and is mentored by the forever-broke Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), looks like it’ll be charming, heartfelt, and poignant, especially with the smattering of father-son dynamics the film provides (with Brian Tyree Henry playing Miles’ police officer father, Jefferson Davis). Also, it looks fantastic. In fact,...

19 Low-Key Sex Toys That Even The TSA Won't Catch

In a perfect world, we'd never have to be secretive about our sex toys while traveling. But since the TSA sees pretty much everything we pack in our carry-ons, that can lead to some pretty awkward run-ins for those of us who aren't comfortable sharing our sex-toy preferences with strangers.Luckily, if you count yourself among those people, you're not out of options. As people with nosy roommates often learn the hard way, inconspicuous sex toys do exist. They may be on the smaller side, they may...

Henry David Hwang’s ‘Yellow Face’ raises still-relevant questions 11 years after its LA debut

When Rachel Dolezal was forced to step down from the presidency of the local branch of the NAACP in Spokane, Wash., in 2015 because she was not (as she had claimed) African-American, it spurred a debate on the nature of race and cultural appropriation which was long past due. Yet, playwright Henry David Hwang had already addressed the issue, and with a minority population which if anything is even more likely to face casual appropriation, in “Yellow Face,” which had its premiere in Los Angeles i...

Top 10 Cutest Disney Heroines

Japan’s anime fans have discussed western “anime” for this next argument-inducing ranking, as voters were asked to select the Disney heroine they believe to be the cutest, a maiden from a relatively modern movie being chosen for first place rather than one of the older, classic heroines… The ranking: 1. Rapunzel (Tangled) 2. Belle (Beauty […]

‘Side by Side by Sondheim’ doesn’t go far at the Odyssey

Apparently the songs of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim are not failsafe. He’s the genius behind some of the last century’s and some of this one’s best musicals. Some of his early songs are showcased in the revue titled “Side by Side by Sondheim,” currently at the Odyssey in West Los Angeles. His best-known songs here include “Send in the Clowns” from “A Little Night Music,” “A Boy Like That / I Have a Love” from “West Side Story” (music by Leonard Bernstein) and “Broadway Baby” from “Follies...

The Sneaky Reason Disney Animators Gave Ariel the Mermaid Red Hair

Let's play some word association. If you grew up in the '90s, when you think "mermaid," you probably think of Ariel. And when you think of Ariel, you probably think red hair. (And when you think about red hair, you probably think about brushing it with a fork.) The Little Mermaid is considered a classic by both millennials and Gen Zers alike, but the titular character's ubiquitous red hair actually has a direct correlation to an older mermaid. In 1984, Daryl Hannah starred in the live-action fi...

European canal cities outside Venice

When we think of canals , our first thought it usually Venice. On second thought, however, we may consider the packs of tourists that descend on that stunning city and the increasingly frustrated locals who want these tourists to just go away. Fortunately, there are several cities throughout Europe that are less-visited than Venice and also crisscrossed with lovely waterways. Quite a few European towns — that are not Venice or even Amsterdam — have historic architecture overlooking picturesque...

‘Aquaman’ Trailer Breakdown: The DC Film Delivers Goofy Jason Momoa and Goofy CGI Fish

No longer will the DCEU be solely dark, gritty, and brooding — here are two male heroes who are bright and, dare I say it, goofy.

Comic-Con: 50 cosplay photos from the event to inspire your 2018 look

One of the best things about San Diego Comic-Con is the cosplayers. Where else can you see Ghostbusters taking over the Gaslamp Quarter or Han Cholo in the flesh? And when there’s really fun, pop culture cosplay, like a Deadpool dressed up in the bathrobe that Ferris Bueller wore during the end credits or Lego figures crossed with the characters from “The X-Files,” it’s almost magical.
