Documentary about the fall of Kanye and Jay Z’s friendship will break your heart

TwitterFacebook

Get ready to weep, Watch The Throne lovers.

An upcoming documentary from U.K.’s Channel 4 examines how the brotherhood, mentorship, and what seemed like a life-long friendship between two of the most iconic rappers in the world — Jay Z and Kanye West — came crashing down.

Dramatically titled Public Enemies: Jay-Z and Kanye, the documentary will reportedly feature unseen footage and unheard testimonies relating to the rappers’ friendship, business partnership, and personal feuds.

The above trailer was released less than a month after Jay Z addressed Kanye in several lyrics on his latest album 4:44, and Kayne reportedly cut ties for good with Jay’s streaming service, Tidal. Read more…

Queen fans, say this to Siri right now

TwitterFacebook

Love Queen? Or Wayne’s World

Then you need to say this to Siri right now: “I see a little silhouette of a man.”

OK, we’re waiting. Yeah, she really goes on for awhile. 

Pretty cool right? 

But it appears the easter egg only works on Siri set to U.S. English. We tested the feature on other English editions such as British, and it didn’t work.

Still, the internet got pretty excited about it, including Vanity Fair writer Nick Bilton, who CCed the new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, aka “Mooch.” Read more…

Veteran scoutmaster scolds Trump in scathing tweetstorm

TwitterFacebook

“Who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” Donald Trump said Monday.

Funny he should ask that, because Trump talked a lot about politics during his speech Monday at the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.

That angered a veteran scout leader, who said Trump made his appearance in front of about 30,000 Boy Scouts all about himself.

Ted Genoways‏, a scoutmaster whose family has had close ties to the Boy Scouts of America for decades, delivered a scathing tweetstorm after Trump used the occasion to once again to take aim at the press, political rivals, and Obamacare in his speech. Read more…

Finally, an empowering, consensual sex scene on ‘Game of Thrones’

TwitterFacebook

It took seven seasons but it finally happened: a sweet, consensual sex scene on Game of Thrones.

The second episode of Season 7, “Stormborn,” took a quick break from war plotting to give the audience the long-awaited consummation (pun unintended, how dare you) of Grey Worm and Missandei’s flirting. That’s right, the two most loyal members of Dany’s Queensgaurd finally got together!

Game of Thrones is a show infamous for its gratuitous sex scenes, rampant sexual assault, and countless scenes of female nudity. But for once, this scene felt not only earned, but empowering. These two characters have been gazing longingly at each other for years, but their duty to their queen always came first. (Not to mention Grey Worm’s insecurities about his body as a eunuch.)

‘Black Panther’ just debuted some new footage at Comic-Con and it looks friggin’ epic

TwitterFacebook

Unlike his buddy Thor, Black Panther didn’t release any new footage online during Marvel’s Comic-Con panel. But luckily for you, we were in the room where it happens – and let’s just say this thing looks friggin’ epic

Like, “worth standing in the Hall H line for” epic.

We were treated to both a longer clip and a trailer-style sizzle reel. The former looks, basically, like Marvel’s take on James Bond. T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) are all dressed to the nines as they enter a South Korean luxury casino that looks like something out of SkyfallRead more…

Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ trailer unites all your favorite street-level superheroes and also Iron Fist

TwitterFacebook

Move over, Avengers – there’s a new superhero gang in town. 

Marvel’s The Defenders brings together all four “street-level” superheroes introduced on Netflix so far: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

Not that they seem all that thrilled about it. All four are more or less what you’d describe as the “lone wolf type” – but to quote another one of our favorite TV properties, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives. And Lord knows they’re gonna need all they can get to survive this next battle. 

Because, you see, they’ll be teaming up to fight the most intimidating pop culture persona of all. Lady’s already survived xenomorphs and ghosts – you know she’s not gonna go down easy. Read more…

The ‘Despacito’ heavy metal cover you didn’t know you needed

TwitterFacebook

Prepare your ears for the heavy metal-reggaeton-pop fusion you never thought would exist.

“Despacito” is the hottest song of the summer, and now it’s got its own heavy metal cover you can bang your head to. 

Musician Leo Moracchioli of Leap Frog Studios in Norway put the catchy song together as a one-man band. In the video’s description, he wrote that he played every instrument and recorded, mixed, mastered, shot, and edited the music and video.

It kind of seems a little contradictory to sing a song titled “Slowly” to raging rock music… but, hey, it’s still pretty cool. Read more…

Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ storm Comic-Con with tons of action-packed footage

TwitterFacebook

Marvel’s Inhumans are ready for action.

ABC’s new superhero show has been touted as the first television series to debut in IMAX before hitting the broadcast airwaves. Which, in turn, raises the question: is this really worth the IMAX treatment? 

We’ll have to wait a few more weeks for a definitive answer to that one (Inhumans hits IMAX Sep. 1). But in the meantime, ABC’s trying like hell to convince potential fans that it is. 

To that end, they treated the Comic-Con audience to four lengthy clips, three of which featured very different types of action. Read more…

Video Linkin Park released same day as Chester Bennington’s death takes on powerful new meaning

TwitterFacebook

Linkin Park lead vocalist Chester Bennington was confirmed dead on Thursday, less than two hours after the band released what would be their last video with him.

“Talking to Myself,” off Linkin Park’s most recent album One More Light, features stirring visuals of the band on tour, playing sold-out shows to massive crowds of screaming admirers. Director Mark Fiore may not have intended it as a tribute, but in the wake of Bennington’s sudden passing, it has become just that. 

The video went up on YouTube around 1 p.m. EDTTMZ reported Bennington’s death an hour later. The lyrics are just a little uncanny — not only with regard to Bennington’s alleged suicide, but to his previous struggles with drugs, alcohol, and suicidal thoughts. Listen to the song, and you might hear Bennington appealing to himself from the outside. Read more…

Kit Kat with a cake in it is most luxe Kit Kat you’ll ever eat

TwitterFacebook

Kit Kat is no stranger to variations on its classic wafer, but this one is fancy AF. 

After debuting a 24-karat gold covered Kit Kat, a sake-flavoured Kit Kat and Kit Kat sushi, the chocolate bar brand has come up with the Chocolatory Gateau Mignon, which has a piece of rich chocolate cake inside it.

The Gateau Mignon Kit Kat took Japanese pastry chef Yasumasa Takagi over a year to develop. Takagi used a lengthy process of trial and error to create a fondant cake with just the right texture to balance the sweetness of the bar’s other ingredients, according to SoraNews24Read more…

Whatsapp users in China report issues sending pictures and video, fearing censorship

TwitterFacebook

Chinese Whatsapp users are fearing that the app is being blocked in the country.

On Tuesday, users found they weren’t able to send pictures or videos across. It only worked when they used a VPN server instead, possibly indicating that the issue wasn’t with Whatsapp, but with the government’s notorious firewall.

If true, the high-profile messaging app would be the latest casualty in China’s latest efforts to police online content.

Users took to Twitter to confirm the peculiar outage:

Has #China blocked #whatsapp, or is it just a glitch? Can only access thru vpn since yesterday

Ed Sheeran deletes his Twitter within 24 hours of that ‘Game of Thrones’ cameo

TwitterFacebook

Singer-turned-actor Ed Sheeran had assured us earlier this month that he was just reading a lot of Harry Potter and taking a break from the Twitter hate, not quitting the platform completely as reported. 

But on Monday afternoon — less than a full day after he appeared in the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season premiere — his Twitter account @edsheeran was deleted. Gone. Poof. Apparently opting for some Hogwarts counter-programming wasn’t enough as we’re now at the “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist” level of seriousness.

Sheeran’s been an active Twitter user for years and has had the occasional break, but the timing here is a bit suspicious.  Read more…

Olloclip Filmer’s Kit is your go-to bag o’ live-streaming tricks

TwitterFacebook

Good smartphone photography and video requires a steady hand, a good eye and, just maybe, a bag of tricks.

That’s more or less the concept behind Olloclip’s and Incase’s limited-time mashup: The Filmer’s Kit. 

It’s a black, compression-molded, 9-inch-by-6-inch-by-3-inch case packed with the majority of Olloclip’s iPhone 7 add-on lenses (the Core Lens Set and Active Lens Set) and Pivot, a nifty, articulating hand-held mobile phone grip with a universal clamp that accommodates most smartphone sizes. There’s also a cold-shoe mount on the Pivot for a microphone and light source and an adapter so you can use Pivot with your favorite GoPro style camera. Read more…
