What happened, Netflix? You were king of the hill – now you're circling the drain
Guardian (UK) - 7 months
It was the envy of the entire TV industry, but it’s becoming notorious for embarrassing duds like Gypsy and Friends from College. Can the streaming giant come back from this? Back in 2013, when Netflix swaggered in out of nowhere and announced the death of traditional television, the New York Times ran a piece headlined “Giving viewers what they want”. It outlined Netflix’s reliance on user data as a commissioning tool, noting that House of Cards came about because executives ran the numbers and realised that a Kevin Spacey political drama produced by David Fincher would be a no-fail draw for its subscribers. Later that year, House of Cards became Netflix’s most-streamed title and won a Peabody award. Jump forward four and a half years, and the picture looks a little different. Netflix’s newest title is Friends from College, which exists exclusively as a warning never to trust Big Data. Individually, all of Friends from College’s pieces are top-notch – it’s a comedy created by Forge...

Chris Evans Proves He's Really Captain America, Takes On Former KKK Leader
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Chris Evans takes his Captain America duties very seriously.  In fact, as noted by HuffPost and other outlets, his responsibilities are apparently extending beyond the Marvel Cinematic Universe and into real life via his Twitter account. Now the Cap is at it again, taking on former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Evans couldn’t remain silent after Duke gave his support for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ confirmation. The actor tweeted, “If David Duke....DAVID!...DUKE!... thinks you’re right, then you are unequivocally wrong.” If David Duke....DAVID!...DUKE!... thinks you're right, then you are unequivocally wrong. The confirmation of @jeffsessions is beyond words. https://t.co/CuLUznwO6S — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) February 9, 2017 Like villains would do in Marvel movies, Duke fired back, calling Evans a “typical dumb actor.” Typical dumb actor - if everything I say is wrong, then when I say I oppose these Zionists wars, you must be for them, ...

Cobie Smulders Says Training For A Tom Cruise Movie Is Tougher Than Giving Birth
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Cobie Smulders may not have played “the mother” on “How I Met Your Mother,” but in reality, she is one. Though it’s a tough job being a parent, the actress recently found something that’s equally, if not more, challenging: being in a Tom Cruise movie. “It was the most physically demanding thing I ever had to do in my life, and I’ve given birth twice if that’s saying anything,” said Smulders when talking about training for “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.” Smulders plays Major Susan Turner in the film, and she wanted to live up to what actual women have to do to earn that position. “It’s one of those things I look back on, and I trained so hard for that because it’s really important to me to portray this woman in a realistic way. The real women who decide to enlist to work their way up in the ranks to become a Major in the United States Army are some freakin’ tough broads.” Smulders knows something about being a “tough broad” herself. She prepared for the movie while also ca...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
2016 is coming to a close but before we say "Hello 2017!" let's reflect on the positives. While this year might not have been your favorite, there were a number of wins for women's healthcare in the areas of breast and ovarian cancer. Here's the rundown: 1. Genetic Testing Is More Affordable For Those Who Need It If your family health history or a conversation with your doctor has indicated you're at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer, genetic testing may be the right choice for you. Here's the good news: getting a test is more affordable than ever before. Color Genomics recently released a test for $249 than can, "accurately analyze a saliva sample for mutations in the breast cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2, as well as check for 17 other genetic variants that have been associated with a somewhat increased risk for cancer of the breast or ovaries." Before getting tested, make sure you check out these practical considerations. 2. Personalized Breast Cancer Treatment Gets ...

Robert Downey Jr., Julianne Moore And More Stars Really Want You To Vote, Just Not For Trump
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Joss Whedon has launched a star-studded campaign to encourage people everywhere to vote. More specifically, to vote against Donald Trump.  And what better way to encourage voters not to vote for the Republican presidential nominee than getting a bunch of famous people ― make that “a shit-ton of famous people” ― together to help influence viewers?  The clip, released by activist production company Save The Day, features 27 celebrities ― including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, Keegan-Michael Key, Don Cheadle, James Franco, Jesse Williams, Cobie Smulders, Martin Sheen, Leslie Odom Jr. and Neil Patrick Harris  ― urging viewers to use their right to vote. At the same time, it pokes fun of the myriad political ads using star power to drive home a point.  Still, the video does its job in referring to Trump as “a racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society,” as Cheadle puts it.  And, as Odom Jr....

Woman Photoshops Celebs Over Pics Of Her Ex, And It's Hilarious
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Photographer and TV writer Kaitlin Kelly has a lot of great photos of herself saved on her computer. Unfortunately, many of them include her ex. Or at least they used to include her ex. When a friend jokingly suggested she swap celebrities into the pics, the 25-year-old was game for the challenge. Why let a perfectly good photo go to waste when you could have Jamie Dornan in it? Or Tom Hardy and "Outlander" hottie Sam Heughan with their arms around you? Kelly, who lives in Los Angeles, told The Huffington Post she was surprised how cathartic it felt to add the celebs into her old pics. "Humor truly is the best medicine," she said. "Seeing the photos makes me laugh and there's nothing like laughter to make you forget bad memories or awkwardness."  Soon, she gave the same treatment to pictures of her ex-girlfriend. Here's a night out with Megan Fox! And a cozy scene with Cobie Smulders: Eventually, requests started coming in from people who appreciated Kelly...
