Bill Nye’s New Netflix Show May Save The World
Huffington Post - about 1 year
In a world full of “alternative facts,” it’s nice to have a guy like Bill Nye back. Netflix just released a trailer for “Bill Nye Saves the World,” and it looks a lot like “Bill Nye the Science Guy” for adults — in the best possible way. The 13-episode show, which will debut on April 21 (the day before Earth Day), will attempt to debunk anti-science claims and myths championed by politicians, religious leaders and titans of industry that range from global warming to sex and alternative medicine. Nye will also be doing a fair share of fist bumping with the show’s correspondents, including model Karlie Kloss, comedian Nazeem Hussain and Emily Calandrelli, who studied at MIT and knows a whole lot about space. Also expect to see guest appearances from Tim Gunn, Zach Braff, Rachel Bloom and a whole lot of other famous folks. Check out the full trailer above. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our ter...

The Wild And Sometimes Frightening World Of ‘Punk’d’
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Serena Williams almost started to cry as she drove the Ford SUV through traffic at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour. Her voice shook as she spoke. It was easy to understand why. In front of Williams, an Escalade with two abducted children inside of it ― one of them a baby ― was racing along palm tree-lined Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles at dangerous speeds. Next to Williams was the baby’s mother, who was also the other child’s aunt. “I’m almost crying for your baby,” Williams said to the woman. Overwhelmed by the weight of the situation, the tennis star took one hand off the wheel and held it over her heart. Just minutes before, Williams had been waiting in the Ford SUV for her friend to use the bathroom. She was parked in a strip mall lot, where she had met the woman now seated next to her during the chase. As Serena witnessed in the parking lot, the woman’s teenage nephew had locked himself and her baby in a neighboring Escalade because the supposed aunt wouldn’t b...

'Star Wars' Premieres In Hollywood To Massive Crowds
Huffington Post - about 2 years
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Star Wars" is back, and audiences at the world premiere of "The Force Awakens" excitedly greeted the mix of familiar characters and new faces waging war in a cinematic galaxy far, far away. Audiences at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theater began cheering Monday from the moments the film's first words appeared onscreen and reacted excitedly to seeing the return of Han Solo and Chewbacca after a 32-year hiatus from the big screen. After the showing, audiences spilled out into a giant tent erected on Hollywood Boulevard where they snapped photos with Stormtroopers and lined up to build their own droid toys. Many seemed to approve of the vision director J.J. Abrams delivered for the first new "Star Wars" film in a decade. "I loved it. I thought J.J. did an amazing job," actor Zach Braff said after the premiere. "My favorite part was just seeing the camaraderie between the veteran and the new cast members."

The Bottom Line: ‘Upright Beasts’ By Lincoln Michel
Huffington Post - over 2 years
In a small Colorado mining town -- a blip on the map -- everything is quiet. There's not much to do, except grab drinks at a local bar, where football games are aired all night. So the narrator of Lincoln Michel's short story, "Some Notes on My Brother’s Brief Travels," drives around aimlessly, contemplates his failing relationship, and ... watches a man in a yellow chicken suit dance on the side of the road? It's not the sort of precious, quippy scene that'd be at home in a John Green novel or a movie starring Zach Braff. When couched in Michel’s honest, dialectical language, these events feel like the bizarre stories you’d share with a friend over drinks. “The strangest thing just happened to me,” his narrators tell the reader casually, granting their anecdotes an air of wonder and intimacy. If Michel's stories, which have been recently published in his debut collection, Upright Beasts, are unified by anything, it's this element of the everyday absurd. His characters aren't...
