And despite being too young to watch The Walking Dead, this little cutie just seems pretty happy to be there.
Complete with a red turtleneck, a leather jacket and a baseball bat, she totally nails her Negan costume – with the exception of her beaming smile and the fact that she probably has not killed dozens of humans and zombies. Read more...
At first, Republicans hyped the statement as a "reopening" of the investigation and the so-called "October surprise" that could wreck her campaign. But as more information came out, it began to appear that the new emails might not be quite as big of a bombshell as the GOP was making it out to be. Read more...
Pretty Little Liarswrapped up filming for good this week, so cast members said farewell by getting — what else? — matching tattoos.
Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish each got their character's first initial inked on their pointer fingers, which are known as "shh" fingers in the PLL world.
Starbucks does not want its brand to be associated with weed, which is unfortunate seeing as their distaste for the drug comes at the expense of a totally sweet bong.
The coffee giant has successfully won a copyright infringement lawsuit over a bong that resembles the classic Starbucks Frappuccino cup. The contraption, dubbed the Dabuccino, features clear glass for the chamber, a green mouthpiece that mimics a straw and a logo that resembles the Starbucks siren, except with pot leaves as a headdress.
In two separate lawsuits, Starbucks held the website Hitman Glass company and bong designer James Landgraf liable for "trademark dilution, trademark infringement and copyright infringement." According to Eater, the product “willfully intended to create an association with the Starbucks Marks and to capitalize upon the success and popularity of the Starbucks Marks to sell [their] products.” The suit also claims this “has caused and will continue to cause irreparable injury and damage to Starbucks Corp.’s business, reputation, and goodwill.” Read more...
LOS ANGELES — Painting in virtual reality could be its own Mystic Art.
The reality-bending sorcery of Doctor Strange is what gives Marvel's latest a visual freshness that blew critics away, and now a trio of VR artists have recreated its psychedelic environments in the headset using Tilt Brush by Google.
Look closely: There are some sneaky peeks at what we'll see when Doctor Strange opens Nov. 4.
First, a little tease of the three 360-degree videos and how they were made.
Not to spoil too much, but right around the minute mark and beyond we get a look at what the forbidden Dark Realm looks like in the film — the big, bulbous blue bubbles dabbed with color — imagery that previous trailers have been stingy with. (It's also the basis for the "New York" video below.) Read more...
LOS ANGELES — With all the chunky hollowbody guitars, horns, keyboards and other drool-worthy vintage gear onstage, you'd think Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band were about to do a set at the Satellite on Thursday night.
But the night belonged to Joanne — more globally known as Lady Gaga — and this new direction for the Lady is actually a return to very familiar territory.
Just 10 years ago, before she transformed into an outrageous pop provocateur, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was a prep-school student doing killer classic rock covers at Village clubs like The Cutting Room and The Bitter End. Read more...
Tesla Motors' electric, self-driving cars are already a thing of beauty.
But after Tesla's stock price increased after hours on Wednesday, a San-Franscisco vandal felt the car would look even better with some celebratory spray paint.
Silicon Valley recruiter Morgan Missen shared a photograph of her neighbor's vandalized Tesla on Twitter Wednesday. The expensive car was involved in what she felt was the “most San Francisco crime ever.”
