’13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 isn’t losing Hannah, and that’s important

TwitterFacebook

13 Reasons Why isn’t stopping at just 13 reasons. 

Netflix’s hit drama — based on Jay Asher’s bestselling book of the same name — is already in production on its second season. Showrunner Brian Yorkey is venturing into completely new territory with the show’s sophomore outing, having no source material to follow, since the first season covered Asher’s book in its entirety. 

While Yorkey is keeping some spoilers close to the chest as filming begins next week, he did join stars Katherine Langford (Hannah), Dylan Minette (Clay), Kate Walsh (Hannah’s mother Olivia) and executive producer Tom McCarthy for a Netflix For Your Consideration panel for 13 Reasons Why in Los Angeles on Friday night. Much to the delight of the audience, in the final few minutes of the panel, he finally dropped some hints about what fans can expect to see in Season 2.  Read more…

J.K Rowling on the London attacks: ‘Don’t confuse grief with lack of courage’

TwitterFacebook

J.K. Rowling had some choice words to share with her followers in the wake of Saturday’s cowardly terrorist attack on London citizens.

She was tweeting in response to a New York Times post that characterized the United Kingdom as “reeling” in the wake of its second terror attack in two weeks. Saturday’s incident followed a May 22 suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Look at how these journalists have aged since they started covering Trump

TwitterFacebook

It’s only been four months since Trump officially took office, but for the journalists forced to cover him for the past two years, it has been centuries.

Take a look at how some of America’s most telegenic pundits and personalities have aged since the election. The president’s war on the media has been successful in one key aspect: he is slowly pushing these people towards death.

A big, beautiful collection of Sean Spicer’s most WTF moments

TwitterFacebook

Throughout President Trump’s brief time in office, an MVP has stood out in the administration like a head emerging from some neatly trimmed bushes: Sean Michael Spicer.

In just a few months, Trump’s White House Press Secretary has distinguished himself as America’s very own court jester, distracting from the political chaos by providing the nation with an unpredictable trove of inadvertently humorous-yet-depressing antics.

He has already inspired legendary SNL sketches and alternate credits of HBO’s comedy Veep with his bizarre behavior, all of which we will reminisce upon here, in one beautiful archive — a comprehensive timeline of all the Spicer insanity. Read more…

London attacks imbue One Love Manchester benefit with a defiant sense of purpose

TwitterFacebook

Saturday’s horrific terror attacks in London — the U.K.’s second in two weeks — won’t derail the planned One Love Manchester benefit concert set up after the first attack two weeks ago. Quite the contrary, in fact.

A statement released in the hours after the incident reaffirmed plans to go on with the show. One Love was originally conceived as a response to the May 22 bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, but now it will also stand as a broader act of protest and defiance against those who would harm innocents.

People are pretending the floor is lava and no, you haven’t traveled back in time

TwitterFacebook

Perhaps you remember, in days of yore, pretending that the floor was made of lava apropos of nothing. Pre-internet, pre-cable — the “floor is lava” game transcended time, space, gender, and socioeconomic status. All you needed was an imagination and a creative object on which to stand.

And it’s back.

The rules? None, other than that you randomly yell “The floor is lava!” and watch the madness unfold. Any feet that touch the ground get burned, A.K.A. you lose the game.

If we date we’re playing ‘the floor is lava’ in random public places.

‘Game of Thrones’ Red Keep recreated in Lego is tiny yet epic

TwitterFacebook

You might think you’re a Game of Thrones fanatic, but until you devote yourself to doing something insane like recreating the Red Keep in Lego, you’re just a run-of-the-mill admirer of the show. 

The detail and construction of the replica of the show’s blood-soaked and drama-filled hall was posted on YouTube by a user named Tusserte on Saturday. Not only does the replica include the stained glass and pillars as depicted on the show, the guy even reproduced the Iron Throne. 

And if you think this is something you can tackle yourself over the weekend, keep in mind that this took him a year and a half of meticulous Lego-centric crafting using 15,000 Lego pieces to get everything just right. Finally, for any doubters regarding the replica’s exactitude, the creator even spliced in clips from the show for comparison.  Read more…
