Britmas in May! Listen to Britney's "Take Off"

KV

This was produced by Bloodshy and Avant and sounds a lot like Rachel Stevens' "Sweet Dreams My LA Ex" so basically i love it





Who says Christmas comes only once a year? This week we were blessed with a new leak from Britney's extensive unreleased catalogue. The track is called Take Off and was recorded at the same time as Mona Lisa (2004).

Orbitz Studio Gemz!

by Keyse
KV

oooo this would be a fun little day trip

Orbitz Studio is one of the places that I hope to visit soon. Located in Bridgeport, CT it's not too far from Boston and has a ton of gems! Orbitz Studio is currently having a special pop up shop during the weekends and special scheduled viewings during the week.

Check out their amazing inventory on their web page and if you visit or order anything online mention Crocodile Tears for 10% off. From the pics and my talks with their founder, Kwesi, it appears that the store has more items in stock at various price points. They also seem like some awesome folks who can talk design with passion! 
*fyi, this is not a sponsored post, I just like OS a lot!


So much beauty! 

Beautiful backs 

I sort of love this wall hanging, check out the artwork on the walls 

Love this simple design and the legs! I love hiding boxes under my dresser, this design is perfect for that 

Mugs! 

This is pretty awesome. I had a white record player growing up with a built in tape deck, I was really hesitant to buy CDs when they first came out. My dad insisted I get a Disc man. I eventually came to love to CDs...but, I still have records and need a new record player. If you have the space, this is a true beauty. 

If you need some badass speakers, these are it! They are in excellent condition too.

Controversial BBC horror mockumentary Ghostwatch available for first time in U.S.

KV

this is creepy

On Halloween night in 1992, the BBC1 first aired a special called Ghostwatch. Its narrative was presented as live and real television, causing a bit of a panic among viewers. An estimated 30,000 calls were made to the BBC within an hour during the broadcast, and one suicide was associated with the film. [Source]. The movie was not aired again on UK television, but there have been a few international airings in countries such as Canada and Belgium. Ghostwatch can be found on DVD in the UK.

Ghostwatch entailed the live, on-air investigation of a poltergeist occurring inside of a family's house in Northolt, Greater London.

Until recently, Ghostwatch still had yet to be officially released overseas in the United States, digitally or on home video. The horror centric streaming service backed by AMC, Shudder, has acquired the movie for its members. It's available now to stream.

Russia Banned From Eurovision 2017

KV

WHOA



- Ukrainian authorities barred Russian contestant Julia Samoylova from coming to the contest in Kiev
- Cited her touring in Crimea in 2015 as the reason
- European Broadcasting Union offered to live stream Samoylova from Russia, or replace her with someone who can enter Ukraine
- Russian TV station Channel One decided to pull out completely instead of replacing her
- Russia will not televise the contest this year
- Eurovision remains not about politics

EBU: “We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities’ decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samoylova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision song contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition. However, preparations continue apace for the Eurovision song contest in the host city Kiev. Our top priority remains to produce a spectacular Eurovision song contest in May.”

“We are deeply disappointed in this decision as we feel it goes against both the spirit of the contest, and the notion of inclusivity that lies at the heart of its values.”

This outcome was kinda obvious after Ukraine won last year.

ugh :(

Bowling alley closing

The Cambridge Planning Board has signed off on Criterion Development Partners’ plans to replace the Lanes & Games bowling alley and the Gateway Motel with a 320-unit apartment complex.

The six-story development long the Concord Turnpike just northwest of the Alewife area will include studios, 1-BRs, 2-BRs, and 3-BRs. The complex will also include 242 parking spaces and three dozen apartments designated as affordable.

Lanes and Games, a more than 40-year fixture in Cambridge, plans to close after this summer so as to give bowling leagues a chance to wrap their games.

Tig Notaro Thinks Louis C.K.'s SNL Clown Sketch Plagiarized Her

KV

COMEDY/DRAMA 🎭





-Last week, Louis C.K hosted SNL where he did a painfully unfunny monologue.
-He also did a sketch where a depressed man has a clown come over to perform just for him and people noticed similarities to a Tig Notaro short film called Clown Service.
-The source states that Notaro doesn't think it was just coincidence as at least one writer on SNL was aware of her film that she knows of.
-Says she hasn't spoken to Louis C.K. in over a year and that she did not give anyone permission to use her idea.
-Source has a video of Notaro's film.



Is this the beginning of the end for Louis C.K?

Living legend, sorry.

Britney Spears is slated to perform in Israel for the first time on 7/3 at Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park. And as it turns out, this concert is such a big deal that it takes precedent over the Israeli Labor Party's hotly-contested primary, which pushed back their election originally scheduled for the same day to 7/4.

United CEO Releases Apology After Airplane Removal: 'I Promise You We Will Do Better'

too little and too motherfucking late. fuck a ceo. fuck united. fuck a corporation that creates fucked up policies and then uses violence against its paying customers for falling victim to them. fuck fuck fuck.

United CEO Releases Apology After Airplane Removal: 'I Promise You We Will Do Better'

United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz has released a lengthy statement after the forceful removal of a passenger from United Express flight 3411 this week.

If you didn’t know, four people were chosen by a computer at random to de-board the plane after it was overbooked. Three of the people left the plane. Law enforcement was called to remove the fourth person, Dr. David Dao, and things turned violent.

Click inside to read Oscar Munoz’s entire letter…

Dear Team,

The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment. I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened. Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. No one should ever be mistreated this way.

I want you to know that we take full responsibility and we will work to make it right.

It’s never too late to do the right thing. I have committed to our customers and our employees that we are going to fix what’s broken so this never happens again. This will include a thorough review of crew movement, our policies for incentivizing volunteers in these situations, how we handle oversold situations and an examination of how we partner with airport authorities and local law enforcement. We’ll communicate the results of our review by April 30th.

I promise you we will do better.

Sincerely,

Oscar

First Look: “GLOW” on Netflix

by Tom and Lorenzo
KV

YUP!!!

It’s funny, the things life decides to show you about yourself. For instance, before we got the PR materials for Netflix’s upcoming series about lady wrestlers in the eighties, we had NO IDEA we’d been waiting so long for a picture of Mad Men‘s Trudy Campbell getting slammed in the face while wearing a french-cut bodysuit.

Gosh, the things you learn about yourself in this gig. Anyway, here’s Monsieur Press Release, with the deets:

“The gorgeous ladies of wrestling are here and they are ready to rumble! In anticipation of the June 23 premiere of GLOW, Netflix has released a set of first look images from the upcoming comedy series.

Inspired by the short-lived, but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom. GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds). Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive producers alongside Flahive and Mensch who are serving as showrunners.”

“GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.”

A Netflix series about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, produced by Jenji Kohan and starring Alison Brie? Universe, WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?

The art direction and costume design are ON POINT. This looks like it’s going to be insane good fun.

Scarlett Johansson Keeps it Basic at the “Ghost in the Shell” NY Premiere

by Tom and Lorenzo
KV

i think this is so gorgeous.

Kittens, we have to give it to you straight, even though we are far from it. You see, sometimes we just have to bite the bullet and admit the unpleasant truth.

Sometimes, when we look at shots of a beautiful woman in a slinky gown all done up to the nines, like so…

 

…our first reaction is something along the lines of, “Meh. Looks like a sparkly beach towel.”

Darlings, it is at those times that we have to admit we are just a weensy bit jaded.

This is fine. Good, even. The design of the dress is very basic, but the stripes and colors take it a bit away from normal premiere red carpetry. It’s got a bold, graphic quality that works really well promoting this type of film. The only real technical crit of the look is that the bust is too tight. For such a slinky dress, it’s doing a not-so-hot job of showcasing her bust, which is at least partially the point of a gown like this on a woman built like her.

But the styling’s a little perfunctory, no? We love the hair, but it never feels like her team is making choices to help set it off. She rarely has the kind of makeup or earrings that kind of style calls for. Her face is underdone and her jewelry choices are puzzling. She needed danglies or cuffs on the ears and probably little else save a ring or two. The bracelets don’t make much sense to us here.

Basically, it’s a potentially dramatic dress, but very little was done to help make it look dramatic.

Open Post: Hosted By Matt McGorry’s Twerking

KV

i'm sorry but this is so unattractive on so many levels

screen-shot-2017-03-25-at-9-03-04-am

Celebrities twerking can be as tired a pop culture phenomenon as it wants to be. Because when the hot dudebro from How To Get Away With Murder is popping that boi-pussy (I’m so sorry for typing that) in his underwear for Instagram licks, it’s more than ok.

Matt McGorry isn’t just an actor, strident social justice warrior and former bodybuilder, he’s also a male stripper wannabe. Dude’s lower body is almost hypnotic. I know he’s doing it for laughs but damn, where was this one when my bachelor party was being planned? Matt should totally (NSFW) Nomi Malone Jon Gosselin’s ass in Atlantic City and steal the spotlight when he has the time.

Matt, I know you’re an SJW and objectifying people probably isn’t your favorite, but I’m going to continue doing it with this next sentence. Less clothes next time, guy.

Watch Matt sell that ass and sell it righteously below.

Getting a quick twerkout in b4 the weekend.

“Feud: Bette and Joan” vs. “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”

by Tom and Lorenzo
KV

this is fascinating tbh

Lorenzo, King of the Screencap, couldn’t stop himself once he got started.  Capturing 500 ‘caps just for the costume posts every week just wasn’t enough for him. Feud: Bette and Joan, it would seem, has lit a fire under his screencapping. You should’ve heard him giggling maniacally last night when he was putting it together.

Anyway, one of the more impressive things about Feud is its commitment to recreating specific iconic screen moments in the careers of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Lo already put together a post with several of their past glories recreated, but now that the series has concluded the portion of the story that takes place during the shooting of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? he spent his free time meticulously piecing together side-by-side comparisons of all the scenes depicted. Can you tell he’s obsessed with this show?

 

 

 

What’s interesting here is how committed they were to getting the lighting and camera angles exactly right, but how they fudged things slightly here and there on the costume and art direction. Another thing that becomes clear when you look at the scenes side-by-side is the difference in the acting styles. Lange is doing an excellent job of appropriating Crawford’s body language, but she’s not doing Joan’s more expressive facial acting style, mainly because she’s a better actress. If you get a chance, watch the “Jane, I’m dying…” scene in the original and then watch Lange’s version. Joan is very good, but Lange is simply better.

Sarandon’s Davis is also good on the body language and fairly good with the facial acting, but you never really get the sense of Jane Hudson’s insanity from her performance. Davis looks scary-crazy in every one of the screencaps here. Sarandon isn’t really going there. This isn’t necessarily a criticism of her acting. She’s playing Bette Davis first and Jane Hudson second. It would have been nice if the series spent time examining just how Bette managed to plumb those depths, but since the story isn’t going there, neither is Sarandon.

Still, they’ve done an amazing job of paying strict homage while still giving themselves room to interpret things in order to tell the story.

What Food Geniuses Eat for Lunch

I worked at a tiny Italian restaurant during college, and every Friday, for four years, the owner would make the same lunch: a lightly-dressed spinach salad, with four grilled shrimp and two tomato slices — as long as the tomato was “bright red and soft, not mushy.” And every Friday, for four years, I was puzzled.… Read more

Kristi Yamaguchi's rep issues statement regarding the skater's "break a leg" tweet to Nancy Kerrigan

KV

OMG I'M LIVINNNGGG



The above tweet from Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi has started picking up steam around the web. While "break a leg" is a common expression for good luck, Yamaguchi's choice of words invoke a different image when directed at Nancy Kerrigan who was the victim of a knee clubbing orchestrated by fellow figure skater Tonya Harding.

Yamaguchi's rep has issued the following statement to E!, "Kristi loves Nancy and has nothing but respect for her. No ill will was intended with the tweet and Nancy herself has received and commented on the well wishes that were sent. Kristi is finding the reactions on social media humorous but unfortunately for those who want it to have been shady, that's not the case."
