My name's Howard, not Hard!
The Vatican has turned heads with a recent decree that grants “indulgences” not only to attendees of the upcoming World Youth Day, but to Catholics who follow the event on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, as well. Indulgences are complicated business— the Church has an entire court overseeing them — but they essentially grant the receiver time-off purgatory, the period of purification before a soul moves into heaven. Considering St. Augustine described purgatory as a pain “more severe than anything a man can suffer in this life,” that’s a pretty good deal.
But beware: “You don’t get the indulgence the way you get a coffee from a vending machine,” cautioned Mario Celli, who heads the Vatican’s social media efforts, in remarks translated by the Italian paper Corriere della Sera. “What really matters is that the Pope’s tweets from Brazil, or the photos of World Youth Day that will be posted on Pinterest, should bear authentic spiritual fruit in the hearts of each one of us.”
Even considering that “authentic spiritual fruit” standard and a host of other caveats — believers must, for instance, be in good standing with the church — the new Internet-friendly stance has earned eye-rolling “lols” from many corners of the Internet, including on Twitter itself.
But the Vatican’s decision arguably has more to do with media theory than theology. Scholars like Nathan Jurgerson have long advanced the philosophy that our digital lives are no different from our actual ones. By applying the same rules to believers online and in-person, the Vatican is essentially saying the same thing — or, as one archbishop put it after Pope Benedict XVI joined Twitter in December, social media is not “a parallel or purely virtual world,” but a real, tangible part of modern life.
If that’s the case, argues Andrew Brown over at the Guardian, Twitter followers are no different from the rest of the proverbial flock:
The whole point of electronic communication is that it has effects in the physical world. That makes it real so far as I am concerned. If a love affair can be nourished in letters, it can be nourished, too, in email, or even, for very time-pressed lovers, in tweets … I can’t see that the means of transmission should make any difference at all here.

Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter on Suits
Harvey isn't just one of New York City's best legal closers; he's also one of the best dressed.
Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey on White Collar
This con man/art thief may have plenty of substance to go along with his style, but it doesn't make his Dapper Dan act any harder on the eyes.
Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman on True Blood
Who are we to ask for anything more than every opportunity to see this man shirtless — but we will say that even fully clothed, and particularly in a natty suit, he exudes sex, power, and danger.
Anderson Cooper on Anderson Cooper 360
CNN's silver fox expertly delivers hard-hitting news, but sometimes we admit we find ourselves distracted by his sharp wardrobe.
John Slattery as Roger Sterling on Mad Men
Draper, Draper, Draper! Though the majority of fashion kudos usually go to Don, we've got to give it up for Sterling, whose buttoned-up suits are just as sharp as the understated classics worn by his business partner.
The stars of The Wolverine, distributed by 20th Century Fox, were joined by a very special guest – the Audi R8 – at the premiere of the film in London’s Leicester Square last night (16 July 2013). The smart occasion was attended by numerous big names including Will Yun Lee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto, Famke Janssen and director James Mangold – all of whom were chauffeured to the top of the red carpet by a fleet of Audi A8s.
Here it is, the first pic of the original 4 judges of The Voice.

Kanye West is reportedly hoping to expand his brood with Kim Kardashian, despite her "horrific" pregnancy with North.
The rapper and his reality TV star girlfriend welcomed baby North, nicknamed Nori, into the world last month.
Kim struggled to cope with her weight gain during pregnancy and reportedly suffered a traumatic birth due to developing life-threatening condition pre-eclampsia.
The star apparently doesn't want to try for baby number two yet, despite her partner's wishes.
"At first, Kim thought Kanye was joking, as she's been through such a stressful time in the past few months and she's only just started to feel herself again. As soon as she realised he was serious, it sparked a spat," a source revealed to British magazine Star.
"Kim reminded Kanye she faced a horrific ordeal with Nori. She feels if he was any kind of supportive partner, he would realise how difficult that was for her, and he would wait until she's regained her confidence."
It's previously been claimed Kim has doubts about being a good mom.
She's also said to be asking sister Kourtney - who has children Penelope and Mason with boyfriend Scott Disick - for help with North.
"She wants time to get to grips with motherhood - she's still struggling to breastfeed - and to enjoy her first precious months as a mom before she even starts thinking about more children," the insider continued.
No pictures of North have yet been revealed and Kim has been keeping a low profile.
However, she was spotted in Southern California recently, with the baby swaddled in a blanket, according to RadarOnline.
A source claimed she has lost lots of the baby weight and looks "amazing".
Kim's mom Kris Jenner recently revealed how the star couple managed to have their baby without being hounded by paparazzi.
"There was a whole elaborate plan in place for when Kim gave birth. We had security and the right room and the perfect car and the decoy car," she explained.
2 more children kanye. the power of three will be an unstoppable force imo
Sources close to production tell us, “Glee is definitely not canceled. If you look at the dollars and cents of the show and that it was very much an ensemble with new kids being added last year when some graduated. It’s clear that the show wasn’t about one character."
Our source says producers are taking their cue from shows like "8 Simple Rules" and "The West Wing," which have also suffered real-life deaths ... the lesson being: one character doesn't make or break a show.
Our source adds, "The producers and writers are taking time to meet and figure out how to best address this situation in the context of Glee. No decision has been reached about a script yet, as it’s still early."
course it wouldn't be cancelled. i do wonder how they'll approach this though. hope they do him justice, and use the platform to either raise awareness (in a sensitive way) or at least end his character in a positive light. i wouldn't be surprised if they exploited it to the max though.
Tina Turner has tied the knot.
The "What's Love Got to Do with It" singer has married longtime partner Erwin Bach in a civil ceremony in Switzerland, Reuters reports. Turner, 73, and Bach, a German-born record producer, wed at the registry office in the Kuesnacht suburb of Zurich where they live, according to a municipal official.
"Turner had the civil ceremony a few days ago," Kuesnacht official Hannes Friess told Reuters on Wednesday.
That civil ceremony will reportedly be followed by a Buddhist celebration at the couple's home on the banks of Lake Zurich.
According to People, Turner and Bach have been together for 27 years, and have lived together in Switzerland for more than 15 of them. She became a Swiss citizen earlier this year.
This is the second marriage for Turner, an eight-time Grammy winner known for songs like "River Deep, Mountain High" and "Proud Mary." She was previously married to Ike Turner from 1962 until their divorce was finalized in 1978, and revealed he had abused her in her 1986 memoir, "I, Tina." Ike Turner died of a cocaine overdose in 2007.
Paul Bhattacharjee missing: EastEnders actor's body found near cliffs on coast
The body of an actor who starred in EastEnders and Casino Royale has been found a week after he disappeared.
53-year-old Paul Bhattacharjee had last been seen leaving rehearsals at the Royal Court Theatre in London last Wednesday evening.
The actor - who also used the name Gautam Paul Bhattacharjee - later sent a text to his girlfriend but had not been heard from since.
The hunt for Mr Bhattercharjee spread across Twitter yesterday with Stephen Fry and Kim Cattrall among hundreds who expressed concern.
Sussex Police today told their Met Police counterparts that the body of a man matching Mr Bhattercharjee's description had been found near cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, on Friday.
Mr Bhattacharjee, from Redbridge, north-east London, was formally identified today and his next of kin have been informed.
His death is not being treated as suspicious.
The actor, who also appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, White Teeth and Dirty Pretty Things, had been due to appear in this week's play Talk Show at the Royal Court.
His role in the play, which began last night, was recast.
He played a doctor in Casino Royale in 2006 and was in several episodes of EastEnders as Inzamam between 2008 and 2010. Other television credits for the actor included Waking the Dead, Spooks and The Bill.
Last year he appeared as Benedick opposite Meera Syal in an Royal Shakespeare Company production of Much Ado about Nothing.
They say Hollywood deaths come in threes... here's to hoping that's just a legend :(
After a Wellington premiere of their new film "The World's End," Peter sat down with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to have a chat about the film WORLD'S END, and filmmaking.
So excited for this movie!
ON AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF ABC FAMILY’S “TWISTED” (8/6)
SOME FAMILY SECRETS PROVE TOO HARD TO HIDE IN AN ALL NEW EPISODE OF “TWISTED,” TUESDAY, AUGUST 6TH AT 9:00PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Allan Louis (“Privileged”) Guest Stars
Burbank, CA – (July 17, 2013) – The Desai family’s connection to Regina threatens to complicate things between the friends, and Jo stumbles upon a shocking secret about Lacey’s family in the episode titled “The Truth Will Out,” airing Tuesday, August 6th, at 9:00pm ET/PT on ABC Family.
When a major development in the murder investigation threatens to send Danny away from Green Grove for good, Danny and Kyle find a reason to work together and Jo and Lacey contemplate whether to reveal a major piece of evidence. Lacey’s aloof and disapproving father, Samuel (Allan Louis), arrives in town for Lacey’s sister’s birthday party hiding a major secret. Meanwhile, Danny is keeping his own secret from his best friends and realizes it may be time to come clean. And Rico is alerted to a shocking video that has the potential to destroy friendships and reputations. Joe Lazarov directed the episode written by Erin Maher and Kay Reindl.
“Twisted” is a one-hour mystery full of twists and turns that is centered on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past (Avan Jogia) who has recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood (Maddie Hasson and Kylie Bunbury). He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is found dead in her home. The series also stars Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards. “Twisted” is executive-produced by Gavin Polone, David Babcock and Adam Milch. “Twisted” is produced by Prodco, Inc.
Ho shit here go hell come
There’s so much for Person of Interest fans to analyze in this EW exclusive poster that we don’t even know where to begin ourselves. But executive producer Jonathan Nolan sums up the theme nicely, saying: “In light of the news about PRISM, we felt this poster celebrated both our panic at America’s descent into an Orwellian nightmare and our excitement over all the free marketing we’re getting out of it.”
The poster will be available to fans at Comic-Con this weekend, and fans on-site also have a chance to see the cast and producers live, when they participate in a panel Saturday at 4 p.m. in room 6BCD. Nolan, fellow EP Greg Plageman, and stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi are set to appear. Recurring guest star Amy Acker will also be on hand.

We thought we we’d never live to see the day that Family Guy’s Griffin family met Bart’s bunch from The Simpsons, but that day is rapidly approaching. TVLine has learned that in a fall 2014 episode of Family Guy, Peter & Co. pay a visit to Springfield, where they’ll be befriended by Homer & Co.
It doesn’t matter in the least to Homer that Peter is (in his jaundiced eyes) albino — in no time, the plus-sized pals are drinking brews and debating whether Duff or Pawtucket is the better beer. Meanwhile, Stewie is charmed by Bart’s old-school mischief; Lisa makes it her mission to find Meg’s talent (good luck with that!); and Marge and Lois become bosom buddies.
No thank you.
Gawker has obtained audio of an alleged Kanye West erratically justifying his interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards ("Because I wrote my ['Run This Town'] verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé"), ranting about not being asked to perform at the ceremony over Pink, and claiming that his mother, Donda West, "died for this fame shit."
The audio supposedly was recorded secretly while West was at dinner with friends after leaving Radio City Music Hall on the night of the 2009 VMAs (September 13, 2009). Our tipster tells us that West shared a table with other musicians (none of whom are easily identifiable in the audio above) at the Corner Bistro in New York's West Village. The salvageable audio is above, and a full transcript below.
And look, there's no way for us to tell from the audio if this is really West, but it sure as hell sounds like him (take it from someone who pored over his interviews for hours and hours). It's not just the tone and timbre of his voice that's convincing, but the content of his rant, the loose connections he draws as if they are utterly obvious. If this is real, and I am thoroughly convinced that it is, it's one for his canon.
I'd rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it's like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn't say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I've, like, defended myself... [Tape break] I'm pushing the envelope! I wrote my fuckin' 'Run This Town' verse for a fuckin' month! When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fuckin' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I'm alive! And if I'm alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I'm alive, you gon' have to deal with it. 'Cause there ain't gonna be no more motherfucking Elvises with no James Browns.
[A female voice asks, "Why are you so angry? What's the anger?"] Because my mother got arrested for the fuckin' sit-ins. My mother died for this fame shit! I moved to fuckin' Hollywood chasing this shit. My mother died because of this shit. Fuck MTV.
It ain't no love. What the fuck was Pink performing? Don't nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the fuck Pink perform two songs and I didn't even get asked to perform "Heartless." "Heartless" is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don't know that Pink song! But I know that she's pink! They put me in a fuckin' room and [inaudible - maybe "projected it"].
[A male voice asks, "How the fuck did Eminem get the Best Hip-Hop song in 2008?"] Eminem won Best Video! Rap Video! Yo, when he wont that shit, I was so happy. I was so happy I [unclear - "ran all this shit," maybe]. I said, "Nigga, I'm gon' do this until y'all put a bullet in my head. I'm runnin' up to y'all, put a..." [tape cuts].
Before the ceremony even ended (and likely before this rant), West posted an all-caps apology on his now-defunct blog, which began, "I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD'VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE'S IN THE BLEACHERS!" He deleted that, replacing it with a much simpler post the next day: "I feel like Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents when he messed up everything and Robert DeNiro asked him to leave...That was Taylor's moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry." Then he apologized and cried about it on TV after Jay Leno shamed him (invoking West's dead mother Donda). Then he apologized again on Twitter in 2010. In the New York Times earlier this year, he blamed this apology on "peer pressure," explaining, "I think that I have like, faltered, you know, as a human. My message isn’t perfectly defined."
