I’m closing comments on this post and any other posts about Ferguson this week because, well, I CAN, and it’s Thanksgiving week and people are in pain and I don’t want any racist ass trolls on this site making it any worse.
Official diagnosis: contusion aka A BRUISE. [Gawker] Keep reading »
We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions.
While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen.
Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera.
We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction.
Let’s not just make noise, let’s make a difference.
Our thoughts are with the family of Michael Brown tonight, who released the above statement after learning that there will be no indictment against Officer Darren Wilson in the death of their son. The St. Louis
defense attorney prosecutor Bob McCullough made the announcement shortly past 9 p.m. EST tonight, largely devoting his 20 minute statement to making Wilson‘s case and blaming everyone from witnesses to the media for the situation in Ferguson — except Darren Wilson and the St. Louis P.D. [NY Times]
There is literally nothing “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam could do to look anything less than a total panty-dropping hottie, but Vogue definitely did their best to make him look kinda silly. The shot above is my obvious favorite because what’s not to like about a bare chest, a dog and a motorcycle? Alas, photographer Bruce Weber made the dumb decision to put some really ugly clothes on Charlie (it’s a fashion magazine, I guessss), had him cozy up to a model that’s not me and, oh yeah, made him pretend to be a paint brush-holding artiste for one particularly stupid shot. Whatever, that pretty face makes up for it. Keep clicking for more… [Fashionisto]
Welp, I think it’s safe to say that executives at HBO have been added to the Church of Scientology’s lengthy suppressive persons list, as the cable network is poised to turn Going Clear into a documentary. Due out in 2015, the documentary will be directed by Alex Gibney and be based on Lawrence Wright’s impeccably researched book about the cult (yeah, I’m just calling it a cult from now on, because I’m done playing nice) and its ties to Hollywood. But given CoS’s well-known litigiousness, HBO isn’t taking any chances and has apparently hired a whopping 160 lawyers in anticipation of a lawsuit. Hey, as far as I’m concerned, if CoS is mad at you, you must be doing something right. Bring on the epic entheta! I wonder if “Elaine” will be seeing it? [Defamer]
No but really, to quote Kanye West, Beyonce really has just made one of the greatest videos of all time, and it was all seemingly filmed on an iPhone. Or it just looks that way and it was really filmed on super expensive equipment with a gang of cameramen. But I doubt it. Regardless! Bey’s video for “7/11″ is the “Where’s Waldo?” of music videos, in that you can watch it five times in a row — which, yes, I did — and still not catch every moment of glorious silliness. Beyonce running in place doing the “gotta pee” dance! Jay tumbling down the hotel hallway! Baby Blue playing on the bed while mom acts like a weirdo! Motherfuckin’ FOOOOOOOT PHONNNNNNNNNNNNNNE! Want to make sure you didn’t miss a moment? I found you some GIFs. Forty-seven to be exact… Keep reading »
