Martha Thomases: The Nerdification of America

24 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

While most of us were going about our days, living our lives, the prevailing culture has become progressively nerdier. I don’t mean that there as been a renewed interest in science and math, because that would imply that we would exert ourselves mentally, and, as Americans, we don’t like to exert ourselves. What I mean is that there is more attention paid to comics, science fiction and fantasy, and that a lot of us know who Steven Moffat is.

In general, I think this is great. As more people celebrate their love of the more nerdy aspects of popular culture, more people might find out about them and find enjoyment as well. I’m all in favor of more pleasure in life. That applies to food and music and gardening as well as entertaining. In these specific case, I’m also pleased because a bigger audience means more »

Cara Delevingne is very close with her girlfriends. She’s been crab hunting with Rihanna in Barbados, smoking e-cigarettes and smooching Michelle Rodriguez at a New York Knicks game, and now we’ve learned how she and her fellow Victoria’s Secret pals hang after hours.

Models Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls revealed that the leggy beauties who walk the runway together also enjoy to share the same bed (and a casual boob grab). Meanwhile, on another continent, Princess RiRi was sunning herself in Brazil sans bikini top (that’s the only way to avoid epic tan lines, am I right?).

Your glorious long weekend has officially come to a close, which means it’s time to study up on recent happenings in order to keep your water cooler talk fresh. Queen Madge was placed on the hot seat after captioning an Instagram photo of her son, »

20 January 2014 1:38 PM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

He sought to correct the record about King’s legacy by insisting that the civil rights leader advocated for, as part of his war on poverty, a guaranteed income and an occupation. He added that access to government benefits, like food stamps, result in general outcomes for those that enjoy them than those who do not. »

NRA Spokesman Uses Mlk Day to Make the Case for More Guns

20 January 2014 12:59 PM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

The NRA tends to stay silent in the immediate aftermath of a high-profile shooting incident, but the organization evidently felt enough time had passed since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and killed in 1968 that they could put out the video below connecting the civil rights leader to the push for less restrictive gun laws. To mark today's holiday, the NRA enlisted its hip, young, black "commentator" Colion Noir to deliver a video message about how much King loved guns. »

On Eve Of Mlk Day, Will Adultery Keep Epic Dr. King Movie Off The Big Screen?

17 January 2014 5:39 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Oliver Stone has run smack into the same wall on a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr biopic that director Paul Greengrass hit when Universal kicked his Mlk project Memphis to the curb two years back. Stone took to his Twitter account today to say that DreamWorks and Warner Bros rejected his script rewrite and that he was done with the movie that also had Jamie Foxx attached. It came down to the studios — which are in lockstep with the Mlk estate that brought them the right to use his famous copyrighted speeches — rejecting Stone’s characterization of long-running rumors that King Jr. engaged in extramarital affairs. “I’m told the estate & the ‘respectable’ black community that guard King’s reputation won’t approve it. They suffocate the man & the truth,” Stone tweeted. He also added a message directly to Mlk: ‘I wish you could see the film I would’ve made. »

Director Oliver Stone has revealed that he is no longer involved in directing and writing a biopic about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Scarface writer tweeted the news earlier today (January 17) and said producers wrongly rejected his script.

Sad news. My Mlk project involvement has ended. I did an extensive rewrite of the script, but the producers won't go with it.

Oliver Stone (@TheOliverStone) January 17, 2014

"The script dealt with issues of adultery, conflicts within the movement, and King's spiritual transformation into a higher, more radical being," Stone explained.

"I'm told the estate and the 'respectable' black community that guard King's reputation won't approve it," he added.

"They suffocate the man and the truth."

I wish you could see the film I would've made. I fear if 'they' ever make it, it'll be just another commemoration of the March on Washington
