If you would have posted this in my thread where I answer all things Olivia Wilde and hate on Jason Sudeikis, I could have told you sooner that she's saying "I'm Olivia Wilde, Welcome to the GQ Comedy Issue"

ok, fine.

"Avril Lavigne's "Rock N Roll" video is a live-action comic book in which she fights a bear-shark, encounters Billy Zane on a Segway, blatantly shills for Sony, and kisses Winnie Cooper from "The Wonder Years":

Happy 5-year anniversary of one of the greatest videos ever made:

Ariana Grande is wrong about Crohn’s disease causing ‘butthole eyes’


... or is she?...

You've put me in quite the bind here.  I either have to agree with Ariana Grande or Page Six?

This actually also happens to people with autism...they get bags under their eyes and just look so tired...I have not investigated much

The term “butthole eyes” seems real offensive and not sure I get it

Good read here on Apple's move into streaming music and video:

Inside the World of Eddy Cue, Apple’s Services Chief

It's behind a paywall, but in exchange for an email address, you can get access to one article.

Yes, I loved that.

Also looking forward to the downfall of Paul Manafort and to see who he takes down with him.

It's on.

Manafort is going to be put in jail so that he stops obstructing justice.

Plea deal in DC on Conspiracy, likely to change his stance and work with special investigation because his 4 months in jail have not been so good for him.  Interesting balance between waiting for his pardon vs cooperating and jeopardizing his pardon.  Conspiracy is a tough one to pardon though.
