The Postal Service Announce Chicago Lollapalooza and Metro Festivals Will Be Their “Very Last” Shows Ever
The Postal Service formed after Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) recorded a song for one of Dntel’s albums. Producer Jimmy Tamborello and Gibbard decided more collaboration was needed after the song sparked an entire EP of remixes by several big name artists.
The band’s debut album, Give Up, which featured Gibbard and Tamborello, as well as Chris Walla on guitar and piano, and Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley) on background vocals and keyboards, was released in 2003. Songs from that album have shown up in prominent commercials and television shows. “Such Great Heights” has featured as the original title song for Grey’s Anatomy, and has appeared in Kaiser Permanente and UPS commercials. It has also been covered by several artists, and remains The Postal Service’s most popular song.
In January 2013, after years of speculation regarding the band’s return to the touring scene and a possible second album, the band announced that they were planning an extended world tour. The tour would coincide with a re-issue of Give Up that would include several music festivals, including Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Now fans will never get a second album, as tonight’s live streaming performance from Lollapalooza at 8:30CDT will be their second-to-last show ever. Fans can catch one last show at Lollapalooza’s grand finale at Metro on Sunday night.
A murder in 1944 draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs. "Kill Your Darlings" opens in limited release on October 18th.
On Friday's two-hour premiere of "America's Next Top Model," a mixture of male and female models flashed their flesh for the cameras. For the first time in its history, the long-running reality show featured a theme of "Guys & Girls." Several of the young contestants also came forward as out members of the LGBT community.
Right from the start, ANTM presented controversial gender issues when Jeremy, a 19-year-old Christian virgin, said at a group audition:
"There's a lot of guys here. None of them are like guy-guys. Like, all of them are feminine. Me, I'm like someone who watches football. Who lifts weights, has muscles. So, I think that makes me different."
Virgg, another 19-year-old contestant, announced early on that she was a transgender woman who had recently begun transitioning. When looking through her choices of lingerie to model, Virgg made it clear to one of the show's assistants that she didn't want "anything exposed." In an interview, she added enthusiastically:
"I was born male, but I am going through the changes to become female. I'm going to own that transgender label because I'm proud of it. You know, if somebody on the street asks, 'Are you that transgender girl from Top Model.' Hell yes, I am!"
The show's first challenge was have all of the men and women march out in sexy undergarments, and then to have them kiss someone of the opposite gender, on the mouth, in front of both an audience and the judges.
Cory, a 22-year-old gay man, described himself as being "very androgynous -- a little more feminine, a little more edgy."
When it came time for him to choose one of the female models, Cory hesitated, then surprised everyone by choosing one of the men instead."It was my turn to choose a girl," he said. "I surveyed everyone. And in that moment I was just like -- aahhh. I gotta be me. So, I just spun around, I chose Rhyan." Later, Cory told host Tyra Banks that he had been picked on for being gay in school. Classmates had taunted him with the nickname "Tyra."
Virgg picked furry Phil for their runway kiss. Phil said he figured that there "was a 37% chance I kissed a dude." Later he charmed the judges with his openness about that intimate moment. After saying he was "straight as can be," one judge suggested he might be bisexual. "Maybe I am," he replied. "Maybe, you know -- I liked it."
During her follow-up interview, Virgg revealed that Tyra had chosen her specifically from an Instagram contest to be on the show. Virgg told the judges that the earlier participation of Isis King, ANTM's first transgender contestant, had been of great help during her school years.
Unfortunately, by the end of the second hour, Virgg indicated that she was suffering from the effects of estrogen treatements, and she asked to be excused from the rest of the competition. Tyra Banks sympathized, and said she knew from Isis that transitioning felt like being "early pregnant. but even crazier."
Previews of the retooled show promise a season filled with more awkward anguish, sexual tension, fear and fierceness. One contestant, Alexandra, has already predicted that Cory won't be able to compete successfully:
"He's super fun. But I think his downfall in this competition is going to be that he needs to be masculine in these photos. And I think it's tough for him."
According to male users on an extra-marital dating site, Miley Cyrus is the most "Cheat-Worthy Celebrity."
The men of AshleyMadison.com have chosen Cyrus as the celebrity they would most like to cheat on their spouses with. She received 18.6 percent of the votes while Mila Kunis came in second with 12.4 percent. The top five were rounded out by Jennifer Lawrence, Sofia Vergara and Beyonce.
Given the fact that Cyrus is not even legally allowed to drink and the average age of men who use Ashley Madison is 44 years old, we're going to go out on a limb and call "gross" on many of the 22,000 men who were asked to take this survey.

Attention ONTD: now we know that we clearly have the superior taste compared to cheating DOMs. Eaux times infinity at them wanting to cheat on their wives with Miley Cystrus of all people. LOL at the fact that this flop bitch with flop non-existent twerking skills can obviously attract one of the most disgusting sections of today's society.
Yes we all know cheating is wrong blah blah blah look at what happened to Bella and Edward blah blah blah, but hypothetically speaking as a community with (generally) better taste in celebs than DOMs... which high-profile celeb would you cheat on with your significant other, ONTD?
From Tegan & Sara's Facebook page: Thanks to Macklemore + Ryan Lewis for having us perform #samelove with them tonight at Osheaga It was magical, moving and terrifying. :) [source]
It was a good night to be a TV critic, as the Television Critics Association bestowed its annual TCA Awards on an eclectic and very worthy collection of shows and individuals in a private ceremony at the Beverly Hilton.
"Breaking Bad" won the 2013 Program of the Year honor. (Critics were voting on the first half of season 5, which aired in the eligibility window last summer.) "Game of Thrones" was recognized for Outstanding Achievement in Drama, while "Parks and Recreation" and "The Big Bang Theory" split the Outstanding Achievement in Comedy award.
"Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany, whom most people in the TCA had never heard of when she appeared before us at a January press tour panel, beat all comers for the Individual Achievement in Drama award, while "Louie" creator/star Louis C.K. won the comedy individual award.
It was definitely a spread the wealth list of winners (see also the "Game of Thrones"/"Breaking Bad" split), with Maslany getting her individual trophy while FX's "The Americans" was named Outstanding New Program, while yet another new — and canceled — series in "Bunheads" walked away with the Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming Award. It won't bring "Bunheads" back, but it was nice to recognize it while we could.
The Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming award went to ABC's "Shark Tank," while HBO's excellent "Behind the Candelabra" won for Outstanding Achivement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials. The Ken Burns documentary "The Central Park Five" won for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information.
Newswoman Barbara Walters won the TCA's Career Achievement Award, while "All in the Family" won the Heritage Award, which is basically the series equivalent of Career Achievement.
I'm writing this before the ceremony starts, but both Norman Lear and Rob Reiner are expected to be on hand for the "All in the Family" win, which should be excellent. (Reiner's father Carl was here two years ago when "The Dick Van Dyke Show" won the same award.) Dan and I should be able to sum up some of the highlights on our next podcast, whenever that winds up being.
The complete list of winners:
Individual Achievement in Drama: Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black,” BBC America)
Individual Achievement in Comedy: Louis C.K. (“Louie,” FX)
Outstanding Achievement in News and Information: “The Central Park Five” (PBS)
Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming: “Shark Tank” (ABC)
Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming: “Bunheads” (ABC Family)
Outstanding New Program: “The Americans” (FX)
Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials: “Behind the Candelabra” (HBO)
Outstanding Achievement in Drama: “Game of Thrones” (HBO)
Outstanding Achievement in Comedy: (Tie) “The Big Bang Theory” (CBS) and “Parks and Recreation” (NBC).
Career Achievement Award: Barbara Walters (ABC)
Heritage Award: “All in the Family” (CBS)
Program of the Year: “Breaking Bad” (AMC)
Remember that awesome Australian movie The Sapphires? You know the one I mean – about that white dude who has four slightly tanned back-up singers? The standout star was Chris O’Dowd? Some skinny Aussie girls were in it?
Allow me to refresh your memory:
Remember that movie? Yeah – me either. But that’s the DVD cover about to be released across the USA and Canada.
I do remember an awesome film about an Australian indigenous girl-group who performed for the troops in Vietnam, while exploring issues of race, identity, love and relationships. I do remember Chris O’Dowd being fabulous in his role of manager as one part of an ensemble cast in which the incredible indigenous women were the stand-outs.
Am I crazy, or did the person who designed that cover see a different film to me?
This is the movie I watched:
Why not use that cover?
Yeah yeah – I get that Chris O’Dowd has a bit of a name in the US and the distributor, Anchor Bay, is just trying to sell as many copies as possible. But Muriel’s Wedding was huge in the US and that was advertised off the back of an image of a then-unknown Toni Collette’s face. Shine used a then-unknown Geoffrey Rush.
But there’s more going on here than simply using a recognisable name to sell more DVDs.
The negative implications of making a film about black women look like it’s about a white man should outweigh any marketing concerns. This film is not only about women, it’s about Indigenous women. That fact deserves to be celebrated.
Hiding those women and the colour of their skin under a veil of blue in a ridiculously photoshopped background – behind a man – is absurd.
The actresses’ names are Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Sharri Sebens and Miranda Tapsell. They are women. They are indigenous. And they are the stars of this movie.
That should be a selling point, not something pushed into the background.
Also. Chris O'Dowd tweeted about this:
As a renowned party animal, she doesn't need many excuses to let her hair down to excess.
So Rihanna took to the Barbados carnival scene with aplomb, partying through to the early hours of Saturday morning in the island's capital Bridgetown.
And the 25-year-old singer looked typically striking in a nearly sheer white monokini, decorated with sparkling metallic panels.
Green face paint, blue and silver sunglasses, practical baseball boots and a white veil over her new short curly hairdo completed the look.
The star clutched a drink in one hand as she grinded behind several other partygoers at The Foreday Morning Jam party.
At one point, she also showed off the backless detail of her ensemble, getting down on all fours for some kind of breakdance move.
The bash, which took place on the street, began at midnight and ended at 6am, with Rihanna seemingly in it for the long haul.
'Woke up in paint and a veil from partying in de street all morning!!! #Barbados #FOREDAYmorning CROP OVA almost here!' she wrote on her Twitter on Saturday after her night out.
However, there was time for recovery for the singer, who tweeted that she was back to work, taking part in a new cover shoot - 'Glam starts now,' she wrote.
Rihanna was showing off her new curly hair style, switching from a menagerie of long wigs she has been sporting on stage during her Diamonds tour.
The star is currently on a two-month break from her world tour after recently jetting back home to Los Angeles from Europe.
She will travel east next month for shows in Macau, Manila and Singapore.
Lady Gaga‘s exclusive New York City restaurant is infested with mice, seen by horrified diners on the very day her dad boasted about it being given a full bill of health.
Patrons at Joanne Trattoria were shocked to see rodents roaming around tables inside the eatery and in the patio area of the Central Park-adjacent establishment on the evening of July 31.
At one point, diners were pointing at the mice in horror and taking pictures while still trying to enjoy their pastas and salads.
One customer managed to take photos of the mice, which were coming into the restaurant through a hole in the wall next to the patio and were nibbling on bits of bread on the floor and even getting up on tables!
The Gaga family opened the restaurant in February, 2012 to appalling reviews .
One food critic accused the Italian restaurant of serving “calamari like leather” and it was like eating “airplane food.”
In June, the restaurant ran into new problems when it was downgraded to a ‘B’ grade by the New York health department.
Dad Joe Germanotta went on a Twitter rant and blamed the bad hygiene report on having “one bad potato” in a storage bin of dozens of veggies.
Ironically, on July 31, the restaurant was upgraded back to ‘A’ status again – and Joe went on to tweet about his victory, saying: “Were got it back. Never give up!”
He then went after his critics tweeting: “Got its A grade back. funny how @nypost doesn’t cover that. Where’s Mr Potatohead now?”
The restaurant is named after Gaga’s aunt Joanne, a painter who died of lupus at the age of 19, and is the one relative the pop icon says was her “inspiration.”
Chef Art Smith teamed up with Gaga’s father, Joe, to open the restaurant, with Joe telling the New York Daily News: “This has been a lifelong dream, and I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally happening.”
What's your restaurant horror story?

Ke$ha insists she is a lot cleaner than many people think.
The outrageous singer is adamant that some aspects of her public persona couldn’t be further from who she really is. She caused a stir when she showed off a ladylike makeover at last year’s American Music Awards (AMAs), with her blonde hair styled in waves and her make-up immaculate.
The star insists she isn’t as grimy as people seem to think.
“I’m a little bit of a freak about that. I know people think I’m really dirty, but I actually shower four times a day, obsessively! I love water. I would live in the ocean if I could. Every time I take a shower, I change my knickers,” she told British magazine Heat.
The star has been on tour recently and the rigorous dance routines in her shows have helped her tone up. She is pleased to be in good shape and although she tries not to judge her mental state on her body, it has made her feel more confident.
“I think that what really matters is you should always wear what you look good in and feel comfortable and confident in. But, more importantly, if you’re a good person and having fun, why not be confident?” she mused.
That said, the 26-year-old star would like to change some bits of herself if she could. She doesn’t focus on that though and hopes to get her fans to follow her lead.
“There are tons of things, but I’m at that point right now where I’m trying to accept every little bit of me,” she said. “Trust me, I don’t have the perfect body, but I don’t have anything else to work with, so I might as well accept it. I think it’s like that with every woman; you just have to try and accept it.”
Showering 4 times a day? Gurl.
These ads for The Trevor Project are a powerful collection of images that will definitely make you stop and think.
Coming from Miami Ad School in San Francisco, the campaign promotes the focus behind The Trevor Project, an organization focused on suicide prevention in the LGBTQ youth community. While all of the images are equally thought-provoking and shocking, I think the most impactful ad of the series is the one of a slit wrist illustrating a commonly used derogatory term. The concept and copy behind this campaign is "words can kill," an entirely true statement that most people tend to forget.
The Trevor Project ads remind everyone that words can kill, but the campaign simultaneously proves that choosing your words can prevent suicide as well.

...a movie that forever erased the happy memories the name Zelda at one point in time instilled in me; Pet Sematary.
Super fans and filmmakers John Campopiano and Justin White have been hard at work on Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Sematary, a thoroughly extensive documentary about the making of the film that's set for release sometime later this year.
In the meantime, check out the just released trailer, and learn more on the Unearthed & Untold Facebook page!
I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about horror documentaries and just Stephen King's work in general. I'd be interested in seeing someone do a doc about It since it traumatized so many people... although apparently so did Zelda.

Sorry if there are any problems. This is my first post!
In a special live broadcast, the BBC today announced that the role of Doctor Who would next be played by Peter Capaldi. Amid much hype and speculation, Peter Capaldi was unveiled as the next Doctor during a special live television event on BBC ONE tonight.
Widely regarded as one of the biggest roles in British television, Capaldi will be the Twelfth Doctor and takes over from Matt Smith who leaves the show at Christmas.
Peter Capaldi says: “Being asked to play The Doctor is an amazing privilege. Like the Doctor himself I find myself in a state of utter terror and delight. I can't wait to get started."
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer says : “It's an incendiary combination: one of the most talented actors of his generation is about to play the best part on television. Peter Capaldi is in the TARDIS!”
Doctor Who companion, Jenna Coleman says "I'm so excited Peter Capaldi is the man taking on the challenge of becoming the Twelfth Doctor. With Steven's writing and his talent I know we'll be making an amazing show with an incredible incarnation of number 12. I can't wait to start this new adventure!"
Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One says : “Peter Capaldi has all the genius and versatility needed to take on the mantel of the great Time Lord and make the role his own. He'll bring his own particular wisdom, charisma and wit to the Twelfth Doctor and take the show into an exciting new era.”
Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning says : “We started thinking Peter Capaldi might be the right person to take on this iconic part a few months ago. But it was only when he did a secret audition at Steven's house under the cover of darkness that we knew we had our man. He's an extraordinarily talented actor who can seemingly turn his hand to anything. We can't wait to premiere his unique take on the Doctor on Christmas Day and we are sure he's going to become one of the all-time classic Doctors.”
Doctor Who is produced by BBC Cymru Wales
Are you ready, ontd?
One one-hundredth of a second kept the United States men's individual relay team from winning at the world championships on Sunday in Spain. Though the team handily won the race, they were disqualified for Kevin Cordes leaving the blocks .01 of a second too early.
At 1:10 in the video, Cordes' error happens. As backstroker Matt Grevers came in to touch the wall, Cordes made a fast dive into the water to swim the breast stroke. Sensors on the blocks monitor the switch between legs of a relay. They allow for a swimmer to leave as early as .03 of a second, but Cordes jumped at .04 of a second.
After Nathan Adrian swam the anchor leg and easily touched the wall first, the U.S. team, which also included Ryan Lochte, celebrated their win. They then saw the disqualification. As France celebrates, the crestfallen Americans walk away.
"I thought I hit it perfectly, but I guess I was too fast," Cordes said to NBC after the disqualification. "There's nothing you can do about it now."
"It's probably my fault, actually," Matt Grevers said. "It's usually the guy coming in. It happens. It happens all the time. It's unfortunate that it happened on the world's second-biggest stage."
Adrian, Lochte and Grevers are all Olympic medalists who have plenty of experience in international meets. Cordes is 19 and much less experienced than his teammates. He was the 2013 NCAA Swimmer of the Year after winning three titles for Arizona, but had a disappointing world championships.
