Alaskan Bush People Season Premiere Recap: Welcome to Washington!

The Season 8 premiere of Alaskan Bush People focused on two very different prognoses: 1. How would the Browns fare now that they are no longer living in Alaska? 2. How is Ami Brown doing after her lung cancer diagnosis? Indeed, the Discovery Channel may need to consider a name change for this long-running reality show now that Billy Brown and company have moved away from their native Alaska. They were forced to do so after Amy’s aforementioned diagnosis because they had to be a lot closer to medical care than they were while living in the middle of the woods. The family tried California at first due to the… Read More

Duggar Daughters’ Raciest Outfits Revealed: What Dress Code?!

The ladies of the Duggar clan are known for their subservience and commitment to their family’s strict set of moral guidelines. But they’re also young, famous women who are branching out on their own in a world where female independence is valued much more than it was in their parents’ day. And the daughters of Jim Bob and Michelle seem to take pleasure in expressing their newfound freedom through fashion. The acts of sartorial rebellion began when Jinger Duggar started wearing pants, and they’ve only continued in the months since.

POPnology: the PNE’s new time-traveling exhibit

In 1964, when author Arthur C. Clark was asked on BBC to predict the future, he said “when that time comes, the whole world will have shrunk to a point … In fact, men will no longer commute. They will communicate.” That, in turn, has been made possible by the internet. It’s one of many cases were science fiction has turned into reality, explained Troy Carlson. As the CEO of Stage Nine Exhibitions, Carlson is behind the PNE’s latest exhibit, POPnology — one that looks at how books, movies, art and TV have influenced technology. “In a sense they were forecasting 20, 30 years ahead,” Carlson said. “There were animations… Read More

Big Brother Recap: Which Side of the House Has the Power?

The Hive has been one of the most in the dark alliances in Big Brother history. Faysal admitted as much at the top of the latest episode and said that it was time for him to make some big decisions as he attempted to keep himself and showmance, Haleigh safe from the block. Even when the alliance is given the power, they squander it, or some twist derails it. We picked up with the HOH competition following Rockstar’s eviction. Tyler also knew that now the battle lines had been drawn, he needed to win the HOH competition because one of Level Six would very likely be going out the door… Read More

Poetry Is Everywhere

In April of 2015, The Washington Post published an article that combined insult, injury, and statistics with a ruthless efficiency. Headlined “Poetry Is Going Extinct, Government Data Show,” the piece—published (insult! injury!) at the height of National Poetry Month—was based on the most recent results of the survey that the National Endowment for the Arts conducts every five years as part of the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey: an attempt to understand, through numbers, Americans’ relationship to the art form that represents, as Wallace Stevens once put it, “the renovation of experience.” The survey’s top-line tidings, if you care about poetry as an art form, were as dire as the… Read More

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Kris Gets Cross

Scott Disick acted like a self-centered jerk with a drinking problem on Keeping Up with the Kardashians this week. Stunning, right? We’ll give you a few minutes to pick your jaw up off the floor before we explain why… Prior to taking a trip to Miami for an event called Art Basel, the irritating father of three gushed to Kris Jenner about his newest business venture: flipping homes. Kris, actually proud of her quasi son-in-law, bragged on his behalf at one point, actually saing: “My entire family leans on you for our design advice from time to time.” Down in Florida, Disick explained his plan was to “look into new… Read More

From Capilano Stadium to Nat Bailey via Degrassi, producer lights up C’s games

Little Stephanie Williams didn’t dream, on those days when her dad took her to watch baseball at what was then Capilano Stadium, that one day she would be perched on top of the roof, producing the game presentation for the Vancouver Canadians. “I’m a huge baseball fan,” the Prince of Wales alumnae said. “I found it very fun to come here as a young girl. My dad brought me here all the time, he taught me how to very politely heckle the umpire.” Just how politely? “I’d suggest the umpire needed glasses.” Williams has been to just about every major league stadium in North America, not so many minor league… Read More

The Situation: I’ve Been Sober for Almost Three Years!

Remember back in the old days of Jersey Shore, before any of the cast members had kids and they were just out there, living their messiest lives? Those were wild times, right? And, looking back, they were actually kind of sad times, too. While Ronnie and Sam’s terrible relationship made for some fantastic reality television, it was also pretty remarkably unhealthy. Since Ronnie’s in another remarkably unhealthy relationship these days, complete with domestic violence charges, things obviously haven’t changed too much for him. Snooki and JWoww are both married with kids, and Deena is married and pregnant. Sammi is trying to lead a more private life now with her boyfriend,… Read More

Nun Fires Perfect First Pitch Strike, Leaves Internet in Awe

It’s official. In case there was any doubt before, all debate has now been put to rest: Sister Mary Jo Sobieck of Marian Catholic High School in Chicago is a better pitcher than 50 Cent. As proven in THIS CLIP, the rapper is on record as having thrown the worst first pitch in Major League Baseball history. So, in that sense, the perfect strike tossed by Sister Mary in the video featured here did not have a high bar to clear in order to be placed higher than 50 Cent’s attempt many years ago. But this awe-inspiring nun didn’t just head out to the mound on Saturday and barely manage… Read More
