May The Fourth Be With You

May The Fourth Be With You















And lo and behold, from the excessive number of environs who had filled the Klown Kar...

There now stands just two.

Cruz, with his excessive degree of unlikeability, cartoonish temper tantrums, incessant whining and serial killer aura didn't do himself any favors.

Down goes Greg Stillson, The Zodiac Killer and Anointed One, son of the bible thumping, walking, talking locus of JFK conspiracies.

Irony comes full circle...

The Navy SEAL who recently died in the aftermath of Bush Junior's iil-fated adventurism against Iraq, Charlie Keating IV, was the grandson of a bad actor in the aftermath of Pappy Bush's ill-fated financial adventurism against the Savings and Loan industry, Charles Keating Jr.

Tangled webs of fate connect.

I'm Cat... Man.

A woman has filmed the tense moment she confronted a convicted video voyeur known for preying on women, at Target.

Candice Spivey had been shopping at the store in Yulee, Florida when she was approached by Jeffrey Polizzi in the bikini section on Tuesday, April 26.

The shopper said she immediately recognized the 31-year-old who had come up to her in a different store two years ago, and began asking her inappropriate questions of a sexual nature - all while filming her on his phone, she claims.

Makes you wonder why wingers are so obsessed with imaginary trans predators in Target restsrooms, when actual cis-gendered predators are roaming the store's aisles, peering up women's dresses with cameras on their shoes.

Why Won’t Hollywood Let Us See Our Best Black Actors?

By Kyle Buchanan



Idris Elba is in four major studio films this year, but you won’t see his face in any of them. Three of those high-profile jobs are voice roles: In addition to playing Chief Bogo in Zootopia and Shere Khan in The Jungle Book, Elba has a supporting part in Pixar’s upcoming Finding Dory. His only live-action role in the lot is playing the villainous Krall in Star Trek Beyond, where he’s buried under so many facial prosthetics that he’s more than unrecognizable — he’s a different color entirely.

I can’t fault Disney for wanting to cast Elba in all of those cartoons: The man’s got one of the best voices in cinema, rich and insinuating. And now that Elba has become something of a sci-fi staple in films like Prometheus and Pacific Rim, perhaps it was inevitable that he’d don makeup for a franchise like Star Trek. But as one of the few black leading men in Hollywood, Elba means something. So what does it say when we see so little of him?

I wish I could call all these castings a fluke. I worry they’re not. Look at Lupita Nyong’o, whose most notable roles since winning the Oscar for 12 Years a Slave have been playing the orange alien Maz Kanata in Star Wars and the white wolf Raksha in The Jungle Book. In this summer’s video-game adaptation Warcraft, Paula Patton is slathered in green paint as the half-human, half-orc Garona, which makes me wonder if she consulted Zoe Saldana for advice before taking the role: After all, Saldana has already played green in Guardians of the Galaxy and blue in Avatar. (It’s become so common for Saldana to play a different color on film that they even gave her another skin tone for the controversial clusterfuck Nina and thought nothing of it.)

You don’t see Leonardo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock, and Tom Cruise painting their faces to win roles, but this color-changing gambit has practically become required of black dramatic actors who want to appear in big-budget movies. Of our A-list movie stars, the only white one regularly tinting her skin is Jennifer Lawrence, who signed a three-film contract to play Mystique in the X-Men films well before she was an Oscar-winning superstar, and whose latest go-round in the role is her least blue yet. Fox was savvy to put Lawrence’s famous white face front and center for X-Men: Apocalypse, since they now know it’s a face that sells movie tickets and magazines. So, too, could Lupita Nyong’o’s, yet since her Oscar win, no white director has cast her in a live-action role that lets her live in her own black skin.
