How Kylie Verzosa Is Swinging Her Caped Dress

Superheroes aren’t the only ones who wear capes, sometimes ordinary people do too. But we don’t always go for the red ones that Superman is known for. These capes can be seen on outerwear or incorporated with our tops and dresses. Fall/winter 2017 runways showcased pieces with capes from Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Dior, and Chanel. […]

It’s a race against time to ensure people vote on marriage equality in Australia


In Australia, the deadline to enrol to vote for marriage equality is approaching fast.  

Australians will be sent a voluntary postal survey on the matter in September, after the country’s government failed to get its marriage equality plebiscite (a public vote on an issue which doesn’t affect the country’s constitution) through parliament twice.

The announcement of a postal vote has culminated in a campaign called Equality Weekender, a series of events, parties and barbecues between Aug. 17 to 20 around Sydney — and hopefully nationally — encouraging people to enrol or ensure they’re eligible to vote. Read more…

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ inadvertently joins the impeach Trump train


Here’s probably the best press that our favourite dating show spin-off, Bachelor In Paradise, will receive.

The show’s Twitter account, which was live-tweeting Tuesday’s episode, somehow mistakenly joined the impeach Trump brigade by including the hashtag “#Impeach45” in its tweet.

It was attached to a GIF of contestant Raven Gates cannonballing into a pool. We’re sure there’s an analogy somewhere.

The tweet was up for an hour, before it was finally and sadly deleted. Not soon enough to prevent the internet from declaring The Bachelor got woke, though. Read more…

Samantha Bee interviews former neo-Nazi whose group fights extremism—then had funds cut by Trump


Full Frontal with Samantha Bee doesn’t come back until September.

But it couldn’t wait until then to air this clip about Life After Hate — a non-profit founded by former far-right extremists that works “with individuals who wish to leave a life of hate.”

The Obama administration awarded the group $400,000 to fight violent extremism, but that funding was pulled by the Trump White House. 

Now, the group is crowdfunding to “fight hate and racism.” It has raised nearly $37,000 of its $400,000 goal. (You can donate right here.) Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 5 sets up a Westerosi Western that we want. Right. Now.


This recap is dark and full of spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 5, “Eastwatch.”

Two queens at war. Neither can see past each other to the far greater threat.

Each needs to be convinced, immediately, or this whole Westeros thing goes to hell. And so the many men beneath their heels must go forth and bring forth the evidence.

An adventure is required. A posse is formed. 

Next up: A Westerosi Western.

That’s pretty much the grand equation of “Eastwatch,” episode 5 of this seventh season of Game of Thrones, a scattershot clockwork of updates and minor machinations, paltry plot pivots and pirouettes that had our heads spinning. Nothing happened, yet somehow everything changed. Read more…

Detroit Red Wings are not pleased their logo is now white nationalist propaganda


Many Detroit Red Wings fans were confused to see their favorite team’s logo waving among swastikas, confederate flags, and other symbols of hate at a massive white supremacist gathering in Virginia on Saturday.

One widely shared video shows a group of racists carrying homemade shields marked with the team’s insignia and chanting the Nazi slogan “blood and soil” as they poured into Charlottesville.

Lest you think that the Detroit hockey team has become a hate group, its front office said in a statement on Saturday that it “vehemently disagrees” with the Nazis who’ve repurposed its trademarks. The team said it’s “exploring every possible legal action.”   Read more…

Young refugees launch digital magazine to tell powerful stories of struggle and triumph


The Ritsona Kingdom flag has a simple design, but it’s deep with meaning. A blue band at the top represents Greek territory, while a thicker swath of red below represents Turkish territory. Two yellow lines separate and intersect them both, symbolizing those who died on dangerous journeys across the Aegean Sea, as well as those who survived and are still trying, desperately, to reach Europe.

Ritsona isn’t really a kingdom, or a country. It’s a refugee camp in Greece. And this unofficial flag, designed and created by refugee youth, is a perfect example of how young people at Ritsona are taking control of their own stories — and sharing them with the world. Read more…

Google Doodle celebrates hip hop by letting you DJ


Google is celebrating the history of hip hop with — what else — a seriously cool Google Doodle.

The interactive Doodle commemorates the 44th anniversary of the party where DJ Kool Herc is credited with creating hip hop in 1973.

The Doodle features art from graffiti artist Cey Adams and has interactive turntables that let you mix your own samples using famous songs right from Google’s homepage.

To get started, all you have to do is click the play button on the “O” in the graphic. It then takes you to a “record crate” where you can choose samples of classic songs from artists like George Clinton, The Isley Brothers, Billy Squire, and Betty Wright. When you’ve picked your songs, you can customize the mix using slider controls.  Read more…

Guy creates a super cool maze for his cats using 50 cardboard boxes


If there’s anything certain about cats, it’s their love for cardboard boxes.

So, in celebration of the made up holiday National Cat Day, Cole and Marmalade‘s human, Chris Poole, decided to created a cat maze using 50 small cardboard boxes. Poole has completely lost use of his living room but at least his cats are happy.

The best part about the cat maze is that it can be broken down and stored in a relatively small area, so hopefully Cole and Marmalade can enjoy the cat maze for years to come.  Read more…
