Some people suggested the figure moving across the course was possibly a giraffe.

‘Wonder Woman’ is finally here and Hollywood’s most powerful women are stoked

TwitterFacebook

Seventy-six years, hundreds of male-dominated superhero films, and not a moment too soon.

It’s taken nigh on a century to bring Wonder Woman, first published as a comic book in 1941, to the big screen. There are men mad about a few sold-out women-only screenings, positively glowing critics’ reviews, and fans excited for the film’s opening weekend — even A-list celebrities who have nothing to do with the movie.

In male-dominated Hollywood, women don’t helm superhero movies — Iron Man, Superman, and Batman helm superhero movies. Hell, even Ant Man got a movie.  With a few exceptions, women don’t lead or direct summer blockbusters or straight-up save the day so much as get saved. (Tip of the hat to Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Moana, and Imperator Furiosa of Mad Max: Fury Road, of course.) Read more…

‘Doctor Who’ fans can take this real-life TARDIS to other worlds

TwitterFacebook

Doctor Who fans, rejoice. A man in Detroit built a real-life TARDIS, and it can take you across galaxies and back in time. 

If you like to read, that is.

Dan Zemke built a real-life version of the Time And Relative Dimension In Space machine (TARDIS) from Doctor Who, except he calls it a “Totally Awesome Reading Dispensary,” which will function as a free library.

Zemke, whose brother rehabs homes in Detroit, according to The Detroit Free Press, said he’s always wanted to fill up a vacant spot in his neighborhood with something “cool” to attract people. So, as a big fan of the hit British sci-fi series, Zemke settled on a TARDIS. But he put his own spin on it — or in it, rather.  Read more…

Pornhub streams documentary on Russian corruption. Yes Pornhub.

TwitterFacebook

Russian censorship just met its match: Pornhub. Yes, that’s right. Pornhub.

Activist Alexei Navalny, known for his consistent opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, was told by a Russian court to take down a video he created that was critical of the country’s leadership, Newsweek reported.

But he found an ally in what some might consider an unlikely place — Pornhub, the popular adult video website.

The video, which was entitled “Russian Corrupted Politician Fucked Hard,” has since been taken down from Pornhub’s site, but Navalny was still thankful for the exposure.   Read more…

Why the Finals aren’t the most important story in the NBA this week

TwitterFacebook

While the NBA Finals dazzle us all, there’s another story playing out in pro basketball, a sinister tale revolving around Turkish center Enes Kanter. 

Kanter’s Oklahoma City team was eliminated from the playoffs long ago. But what’s happening with him right now is dark. It’s troubling. 

And it’s something we should all be paying attention to, no matter how seductive it is to simply tune out the real world while we slip into the sweet embrace of these hotly anticipated NBA Finals. 

SEE ALSO: Schea Cotton, the NBA All-Star who wasn’t, is finally ready to tell his story

Like LeBron James’ powerful comments this week, Kanter’s story shows there’s really no way of “sticking to sports,” as the saying goes, no way of separating these games from a political world that lately seems set to a raging boil.  Read more…

Donald Trump hasn’t acknowledged it’s Pride Month and people have definitely noticed

TwitterFacebook

Despite what you’ve heard — or rather, have not heard — from the White House, June is Pride Month.

To celebrate and show support for the LGBTQ community, Twitter has released a custom heart emoji, Instagram added some fierce AF stickers to its app, and Google even dedicated a Doodle to the honor the American artist and LGBTQ rights activist who crated the rainbow flag. President Trump, however, has done nothing.

We’re already two days into June and have heard complete silence from the White House in regards to Pride. Needless to say, people have definitely noticed — and they’re not happy about it. Read more…

The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ might not air until 2019 and how are we supposed to live?

TwitterFacebook

We have good news and bad news: Season 7 of Game of Thrones is apparently “amazing,” according to HBO boss Casey Bloys, but after it airs, you might have to wait until 2019 for Season 8 — and even longer for any of the potential prequels that HBO is developing. 

In a new interview with EW, Bloys laid out the timeline for the final two seasons of Game of Thrones and when we might expect to see a spinoff — reiterating that HBO and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are focused on sticking the landing with the final 13 episodes of the series before the network starts thinking about any offshoots.  Read more…

France helpfully corrects Trump’s video on climate change

TwitterFacebook

The White House released an animated explainer to go with Donald Trump’s speech about pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement Thursday. A day later, the French Ministry countered with its own version of the video.

Artist combines animated cats with fidget spinners and it’s fascinating

TwitterFacebook

Independent designer, Jonathon Odom created a gadget that is truly internet-worthyAccording to Odom, “Fidget spinners are supposed to help you focus, cat videos were invented to distract you. I combined the two, so they probably cancel each other out.”

Odom was inspired by a 19th century device called a zoetrope and fidget spinners which are an extremely popular stress-relief toy. The coolest part is that he blessed the world with instructions so you can make one yourself.

Don’t have a 3D printer lying around? You can buy an animated fidget spinner from Jonathon’s store here. Read more…
