There are many thoughtful updates in Disney's newest adaptation of Beauty And The Beast. Belle is still a misunderstood bookworm, but she’s also a fledgling engineer who helps her father build music boxes and designs rigs for her manual chores. The other townsfolk are much more ethnically diverse. This is a fantasy in which all kinds of people are allowed to exist—if only in the background as...View more »

En México la muerte es dulce y se regala y desea a las personas. Cuando vengas a la Ciudad en estos días no te asustes si alguien te regala un cráneo de dulce (puede ser de chocolate, azúcar, amaranto o incluso de tamarindo enchilado) con tu nombre escrito. O te escriba unos versos y rimas acerca de cómo y cuándo vas a morir. También pueden darte pan de muerto, un delicioso pan con adornos que...View more »

Toss a turkey in the oven and it cooks from the outside in, which can take hours of roasting before it’s done. But what if you cooked a turkey from the inside out? That’s what Allen Pan tried by filling a raw turkey with molten aluminum and then letting the whole thing cook, cool, and solidify, en route to a friend’s Thanksgiving party.
The results were, well, disastrous. It turns out there’s...View more »
From the Wales News Service:

As someone who takes a great deal of time in deciding on something to watch, read, or even write, I have to admit something like Mekakucity Actors felt off to me. The 2014 anime series was prodded at with a very large stick by all of my friends, warning me that it was a very polarizing experience (I would later discover after becoming a writer on here that many others feel the same...View more »

The old Blade Runner might want a real one, but a couple of replicant ringers have recently infiltrated fluffy flocks in North Wales. Don’t tell Shaun the Sheep, who has his own history as a robot fighter, but these electric ewes are all part of the quest for a better lamb chop.
Students at Bangor University are using the electric sheep to gauge how their real life counterparts...View more »
This is an ongoing log where I chronicle the events that befall me in No Man’s Sky as I travel all the way back to my starting world, in first-person. I hope you enjoy!
Captain’s Log. Stardate: See above.

Well, I just voted and I thought I’d finally share this document I’ve been working on for about a week (really rushed through it). It is a document about the current presidential election so if you have no interest in reading about politics, stop now.
So, considering the title of this article, it is clear that I am not a fan of ridiculous conspiracy theories or using misinformation and quotes...View more »
Because I watch all the House Party movies far too often, have this great message delivered by the man Bernie Mac.
I was just curious if the Ferrari 312B documentary was being shown since they said it would have a global theater showing. Can’t find anything for the US but I guess you all in Canada have it playing up there for tonight only. Maybe someone else here has or can track down more info.

Hopefully this article’s admittedly overly clickbait-y title has drawn you in...View more »
Get down and show your true colors.
How fitting, fireworks in both America and Splatoon! The very first Splatfest is underway for the first time in the West, with American choosing between cats and dogs while in the old continent we must decide between Rock and Pop. As you will be able to witness in the thirty minutes or so of the European Splatfest I recorded earlier, everything gone dance...View more »
