Singer/songwriter Lisa Scinta has writing credits on "Feel Me", the song that Selena recently debuted on her Revival tour. Lisa may not be familiar to you, but interestingly Season 5 The Voice runner-up, Jacquie Lee, worked with her roughly 2 months ago (presumably for her debut album) and, upon further research, it turns out that Lisa was actually a contestant on (2012) Season 3 of The Voice as part of Team Christina Aguilera! Most people probably won't remember Lisa though, because her blind audition was cut down to a mere few seconds and then she was eliminated during the Battle Rounds not too long after that.
New Diesel ads. Racism??? Asian guy has "soooo serious" text over his ad (stalkerish). Female just has "girlfriend." pic.twitter.com/eHCZQ3Cezs— Nerdy Asians (@NerdyAsians) May 9, 2016
The new Diesel campaign is on Tinder.
The "male version" of the Diesel ad has an Asian guy with text on his picture that says "this is how serious i am about us." His picture is very over-the-top serious for a Tinder picture. The implication is that people swipe left on this "type of guy" on Tinder.
The "female version" of the ad just says "it's girlfriend material." There is no negative stereotype placed on the white girl. Her picture is just a random picture you might find on Tinder.
Racism isn't always blatant. It can be subtle. Diesel is portraying the Asian guy in a totally different way than the white girl. What's the purpose of that?
During the last part of the season Peter was on trial for corruption and Alicia, Diane and Lucca were representing him.
In the penultimate episode the jury came back with a verdict but they left it on a cliffhanger.
We were supposed to find out if he was guilty or not but the jury didn’t actually render a verdict. They had a question and there was a lot of back and forth during the trial.
Alicia had a lot of hallucinations with Will (Josh Charles made several appearances, some which looked like flashback, some that were obviously hallucinations. He tells her to be with Jason even though she’ obviously not in love with him the same way she was with Will. She tells hallucination Will that she’ll love him forever.
Alicia & Jason go back and forth with the will they or won’t they.
Cary makes a cameo. He is teaching now.
Peter eventually takes a deal to resign as governor and take one year probation, no jail as part of a plea deal.
The last scene has Alicia walking hand in hand with Peter and going up to the podium during his press conference to announce his deal. Eventually she sees Jason in a shadow in the hall backstage. She walks away from Peter to go after him and chases him. She calls to him but he doesn’t answer. She leaves a voice mail to tell him she is ending everything with Peter and wants to be with him. She continues to chase him down the hall but he is nowhere to be seen. She turns to go back (to Peter?). Diane walks up and slaps her (because Alicia forced her husband to admit to an affair during the trial). She continues to walk down the hallway (again back to Peter) and after crying about Diane she stiffens up and continues to walk down the hallway. The end.
Did you watch the finale? What did you think?

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were on The B-Movies Podcast to discuss Captain America: Civil War.
On Bucky Barnes (5:30 mark):“Well, because for one thing he is, give or take his intellectual capacity, 100% guilty and to have Steve just running around getting fruit salads with him on some island, it’s a little too unpunished in a way.
This is not a guy who should be running around happily, he may not be a 100% guilty but he’s damn sure not a 100% innocent”
They followed up asking if Wanda was as guilty, but they said that what she did was purely accidental.
do you agree? is bucky 100% guilty for what hydra programmed the winter soldier to do?
Resident Emo Kid Chris changed out of that nagl hoodie for once. Nick remains to slay in that button up. What did you think of the EP, ONTD?
It’s graduation day for the NATS of Quantico, while, in the future, Alex and her team find themselves head-to-head with the terrorist, on the season finale of “Quantico.”
They're set to perform the song Go Ahead and Break My Heart on The Voice tonight.
cute or embarassing ontd?
- Fifth Harmony arrive on set and their entourage basically consist of: one grandmother, three mothers, two fathers, two sisters, a tour manager, a day-to-day manager, two publicists, and a Louboutin-sized dog.They also give lots of hugs.
- The girls act like hosts at a party, graciously thanking stylists, editors (pretty much everyone) crushing the stereotype of entitled millennials to a pulp.
- Their sophmore album, 7/27, is about to be released on May 27th and the single “Work From Home” has managed to climb over Rihanna’s most recent “Work” on the iTunes charts.
- 5H’s next big performance will be in Canada as one of the headlining acts slated to appear at the 2016 iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards on June 19 in Toronto.
Quotes from the review:
- "In many ways, 7/27 signifies a true reflection of Fifth Harmony’s coming out in a post-Beyoncé, post-Lady Gaga, post-Katy Perry world. Those 30-something singers have already put everything on the table in their music: equality, sex, love and career. 5H intends to have fun with all of the above"
- " this new album carries no remnants of their reality-show past. Much like Destiny’s Child with their 1999 sophomore album, The Writing’s On The Wall, 7/27 sounds assertive, focused and a lot more hit-driven than the group’s debut. Missy Elliot guests on a track called “Not That Kind of Girl"; which calls out the woman shamers of the world (especially those who don’t approve of 5H’s sexy ensembles). Another should-be-massive hit “That’s My Girl” advises listeners to “get up and get it” and repeatedly urges them to “know their worth.”"

They look like a girl group ready to take over the world if you ask me
+ It’s possible to “go dark” and introduce weighty themes without becoming simplistic, and still have some fun too.
+ It’s not that civilians can’t die, it’s that you need to care that they died.
+ Don’t tease a ginormous conflict that can be easily resolved by a single word.
+ Understand that stakes come from emotional investment in the psychologies of the characters, not the size of the threat.
+ If you have to use your movie to set up other franchises, do it organically.
Jonás Cuarón will write and directed. He recently directed 'Desierto', also starring Gael. And co-wrote 'Gravity' with his father, Alfonso Cuarón.
Production on "Z" begins this fall.

Yep, she already had the baby, another daughter! Amada Lee Gosling was born on the 29th of April. She joins older sister Esmeralda Amada. Amada is a special name for Eva as it was her grandmother's name, and means "beloved" in Spanish.
Congrats to the gorgeous couple on their beautiful family! Cue the haters!
Daily Mail also has pics of Ryan, Eva and their eldest after the birth because no one is catching this fam unless they wanna be seen.
Hopefully that's the end of James Frain chewing up the scenery.
Glad to see Riddler is back with Butch taking names and kicking ass.
Yay more Firefly
Riddler meets Catwoman. Hopefully he'll escape and buddy up with Penguin.
Not looking forward to Fish's return. She was a big part of why S1 was subpar.
