Back in Blazkowicz with Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

In the demo I played on the PC version, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus brings back the challenging, unadulterated shooter action of Wolfenstein: The New Order in a great-looking followup to Machine Games’ reboot. To be clear there isn’t a ton that’s radically different about it mechanically: BJ still sneaks around knifing Nazis in the back before grabbing two guns and blowing the rest away. But the two levels I played each have some distinctive qualities that made them feel different from the “original” in subtle but important ways.

Like the first game, Wolfenstein 2 plays its story of resisting technologically advanced Nazis pretty straight, with strong performances from its cast. BJ and his now-pregnant girlfriend Anya, grizzled science genius Set, and the rest of the resistance fighters left standing at the end of The New Order all give convincing dramatic performances during the cinematics I saw. At the same time, The New Colossus is self-aware enough to know when it’s being ridiculous – and fully embraces it.

Au revoir, Proenza. Adieu, Rodarte. Ta-ta, Thom Browne. While several high-profile American brands have decided to abandon New York Fashion Week for Paris, at least one major international name is doing the opposite and bringing her show back to town: Rihanna.
After two seasons showing her Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection in Paris, WWD has learned that Rihanna is heading back to New York Fashion Week, where she launched the line with her first show for fall 2016.
Rihanna was unavailable for comment but Puma issued this statement: “After two successful seasons showing during Paris Fashion Week, Rihanna has decided to return to New York and show her Fenty Puma by Rihanna spring 2018 collection during NYFW, making this the first time she will present during September NYFW.”
Details of the date and location of the show have yet to be confirmed, but if the past is any indication, it will be one of the late shows with an elaborate set. Rihanna presented her first Fenty Puma collection at 23 Wall Street, followed by spring 2017 at Paris’ Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, and most recently at Bibliothèque Nationale de France for fall. Reportedly working with a different designer every season, including Adam Selman

From EW Archives: A Look Back at Roger Moore’s Career as the Best Bond

Legendary British actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 90 after an iconic career on the silver screen — including his record time as James Bond. This 2008 interview from EW takes a look back at Moore’s career and how he became “the best Bond.”

“Can I get you a drink, Mr. Moore?”

The waiter stands there, secretly hoping that he’ll say those five words known from the beaches of Rio to the bazaars of Cairo to the ski slopes of Gstaad: Vodka martini—shaken, not stirred.

“I’ll have a…Bloody Mary.”

Roger Moore is sitting in the posh dining room of New York City’s St. Regis hotel. He is wearing a crisp white shirt (French cuffs, naturally), a blue-and-red-striped tie (Savile Row, of course), and a blue blazer with a tiny florette pinned to the lapel signifying that the erstwhile international man of mystery is a Commander of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Seated next to him is his fourth wife, Kristina, a lovely blonde with a vaguely European accent.

Every eye in the room is on him. Middle-aged men and their wives crane their necks just to hear his voice. This is what it is to be in the elite fraternity of actors who have played James Bond. When Moore‘s drink arrives, he swishes it around in his mouth like a fine bordeaux and announces “This is the best goddamned Bloody Mary I’ve ever had!”

Adjectives almost fail to do justice to Moore‘s speaking voice. It’s a purr coated in honey and caramel and molasses. He is 81 and has a leathery tan. If you squint just a little, he doesn’t look all that different from when we last saw him—in a steamy shower, canoodling with Tanya Roberts in the closing scene of 1985’s A View to a Kill (“Oh, James!”)—the last of his seven debonair, sardonic turns as 007.

I was 8 years old when I saw my first James Bond film. It was the summer of 1977. I consider myself blessed by the timing. The Spy Who Loved Me was not only the best Bond movie Moore ever made (an opinion he shares, by the way), it was also—thanks to the luscious Barbara Bach and the steel-toothed giant Jaws—one of the best films in the series.

Moore was the first Bond I knew. Like anyone who grew up in the ’70s, I’d later catch up with the older Connery films on TV. But they didn’t compare. They just seemed like smudgy Xeroxes of the Bond I’d first seen in the theater. And where was the fun? Sure, Connery was more dangerous, rougher around the edges, deadlier with a Walther PPK. But Moore was lethal from 10 paces, armed with nothing more than a cocked eyebrow and a saucy bon mot. And if there was some sort of sexual double entendre in that bon mot, well, all the better for an 8-year-old.

Moore had the good luck to play Bond during the last gasp of the Cold War. Often the plots were needlessly byzantine and downright absurd (the outer-space love story involving Jaws in Moonraker comes to mind). But most of Moore‘s Bond flicks were catnip to boys who hadn’t discovered girls yet. In Live and Let Die, he got entangled in Caribbean voodoo. In The Man With the Golden Gun, the villain had a superfluous nipple. And in For Your Eyes Only, he was chased down the Italian Alps by Aryans on motorcycles—Aryans on motorcycles! Cheese, yes. But served up with just the right amount of ham, thanks to Moore.

Moore played 007 more times than any other actor. By rights of possession, he owns the part. Connery appeared in only six, if you exclude the unofficial and embarrassing 1983 comeback Never Say Never Again (I doubt even Connery wants to include that one). And as any apprentice-level 007 aficionado knows, there were also the blink-and-miss George Lazenby (one film), the placeholding charisma vacuum Timothy Dalton (two), and the so-suave-he-was-almost-bland Pierce Brosnan (four). Now, of course, we have Daniel Craig, who’s updated Bond into a sort of sadistic, knuckle-scraping Jason Bourne in a tux. He’s serious, flawed, and, if you ask me, kind of a drag.

The knock on Moore has always been that he played the character too lightly. He was too arch. Too jokey. But that seems a bit rigid. Moore‘s Bond films grossed $ 1.2 billion worldwide. He took over a hugely popular franchise after its leading man walked and kept it humming for 12 more years. As far as I’m concerned, Moore is, was, and will always be Bond. It’s not a critical argument, just one from the heart.

When I explain this to Moore—that the Bond you love first is the Bond you’ll always love most, he seems genuinely touched. I think he even calls me “dear boy” before turning to Kristina and saying, “Darling, get Sean on the phone. He needs to hear this.”

After ordering a couple of insanely expensive hamburgers, Moore and I dig into his double-0 legacy. Moore is aware of his lightweight, also-ran reputation within the Bond universe. And he’s actually damn proud of it. “To be associated with success is absolutely wonderful,” he says. “If my first one, Live and Let Die, had not been a hit, people might have said, ‘Oh, he was the poor fellow who only made one,’ which is unfortunately what they say about George.”

Moore has just published a new memoir called My Word Is My Bond. The timing is no accident. He’s smart enough to know that piggybacking its release on that of the 22nd Bond film, Quantum of Solace, is good business.

Both in the pages of his book and in person, Moore, the only child of a policeman and a homemaker, is a cheeky raconteur. Naughty anecdotes from the exotic, far-flung sets of his Bond films pour out of him, like the time when his View to a Kill costar Grace Jones smuggled a very lifelike sex toy into bed during their onscreen love scene, or the fact that his diminutive Man With the Golden Gun castmate Hervé Villechaize had a sweet tooth for strippers from Hong Kong.

Moore also tells a story that should get the legions of Connery purists shaken and stirred too. Namely, that he was considered for the role of 007 in 1962’s Dr. No before Connery was tapped. “That’s what they told me, at least,” he says. “They also said I was Ian Fleming’s first choice. But Ian Fleming didn’t know me from s—. He wanted Cary Grant or David Niven.”

By the early ’70s, Connery had grown weary of Bond and had become increasingly testy about the financial details of his contract. So Bond producer Cubby Broccoli came back to sniff around Moore, who had just wrapped the British TV series The Persuaders! In 1973, he offered the actor a three-picture deal. Moore knew it wouldn’t be easy to make fans forget about Connery, so he wanted to put his own stamp on the character. “I tried to find out what Bond was all about,” he says, “but you can’t tell much from the books. There’s the line that says ‘He didn’t take pleasure in killing, but took pride in doing it well.’ So that’s what I did. But the other side of me was saying, This is a famous spy—everyone knows his name, and every bartender in the world knows he likes martinis shaken, not stirred. Come on, it’s all a big joke! So most of the time I played it tongue-in-cheek.”

Moore is the first to admit he’s no Olivier. Well, second, after the critics who crucified him as 007. In the past he’s been quoted as saying, “My acting range has always been something between the two extremes of ‘raises left eyebrow’ and ‘raises right eyebrow.’” When asked about this bit of self-deprecation, he adds, “I can also wiggle my ears.”

As our hamburgers arrive, Moore delicately reaches for a knife and fork—yes, he actually eats a burger with a knife and fork—and says, “Listen, if I say I’m s— as an actor, then the critic can’t, because I’ve already said it! For years my agents would tell me, ‘You’ve got to stop saying these things about yourself. People will believe you.’ So? They may also be pleasantly surprised!” Actually, Moore says that he did bring one bit of Method acting to the role of Bond. In each of the films, whenever he went face-to-face with a villain in a scene, he would imagine that the bad guy had halitosis. “If you watch those scenes, you’ll see I look mildly repulsed.”

In Moore‘s sixth Bond film, 1983’s Octopussy, the secret agent squared off against a rival that even Ian Fleming couldn’t have dreamed up: Sean Connery. After leaving the franchise 12 years earlier, Connery had returned in the unsanctioned 007 movie Never Say Never Again, which opened four months after Octopussy. The high-noon box office showdown seemed like it would reveal, once and for all, America’s favorite Bond. Octopussy won. When I ask Moore if he felt any competitiveness with Connery at the time, he smiles. “No more than two jockeys who are going to be paid anyway for running the race. But it would be nice if you won because you’d get the extra bonus. But really, no more than that. Sean and I are friends.”

As he finishes this sentence, a stranger comes over to our table. It’s Plácido Domingo. Moore gets up, and the two go off to the side of the room to catch up. I ask Kristina how these two know each other, and she tells me that they often play tennis together while on vacation in Acapulco. Of course they do. Then I ask her where she and Moore live. She replies, “We spend the summers in Monaco and the winters in Switzerland.” What did you expect?

When Moore returns to the table, he launches into his reasons for leaving the franchise. He twists open a mini-bottle of ketchup, pours some on his burger, and then licks the rim of the bottle to catch a stray dollop. “It had been on my mind for a long time,” he says. “I became very conscious that I was getting long in the tooth to play the great lover. Not that I ever needed Viagra,” he says, shooting a rascal’s grin at his wife. “I was 57 in the last one. You can see I was getting a little scraggy around the neck.”

Afterward, Moore made a few appearances in forgettable films, passed on a TV series with Burt Reynolds, and began working as an ambassador for UNICEF, which he continues to do today. But mostly he just wandered away from acting, happy to live the good life, ski, and play tennis. “I was not born with tremendous ambition,” he admits. “And thank God, because my contemporaries who had ambition are all dead. It can kill you.”

Ambition or not, Moore has always worked hard not to criticize, or even comment on, the Bonds who came after him. He’s too diplomatic for that, too classy. So when I ask him his opinion of the newer-model 007s, I’m not surprised that he waves the question off with his hand. But I ask again. “Okay, I’ve seen Daniel’s Casino Royale, and I thought it was bloody good! I saw bits of the Timothy Dalton ones, and I saw one of Pierce’s and I thought that was a bit phantasmagoric—invisible cars! They went too far.” However, he says, “in 47 years they haven’t made many mistakes with the Bond franchise. They’re clever enough to sense a trend. And the trend right now is for hard, gritty Bond.”

If that’s the case, and the Bond movies reflect the times in which they’re made, what does he think the Roger Moore Bonds were trying to say about the late ’70s and early ’80s? He thinks about it for a minute, then seems to grow frustrated. “People are always reading things into the films,” he says. “But we set out to make entertainment. There’s no hidden agenda. They’re just ‘Wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am, here comes a pretty girl, there goes a car chase, let’s shoot a helicopter down.’ That’s as deep as they got.”

Just then, a man in his 40s approaches. He hovers behind Moore, waiting for the right moment to say something. Finally, Moore turns around and shoots him a “Can I help you?” stare. The man stammers and clears his throat. “I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m a huge fan and I just wanted to hear your voice. Could you say something—anything?” Moore takes his napkin from his lap and slowly folds it. “Thank you, that’s very nice of you.” That’s it. The man walks away, giggling, a childlike smile on his face. I ask Moore if he ever gets tired of this. Tired of the fact that wherever he goes, he’ll always be hounded by people who want a piece of James Bond.

He almost chokes on his Bloody Mary.

“Are you kidding? I’m damn lucky!”

Then comes the old Moore quip. “…I’ve been lucky, said the man as he stepped into the street.” He crashes his hands together, mimicking the impact of an oncoming bus.

His wife and I politely laugh.

But our reaction isn’t hearty enough. Moore wants more. So he calls upon the deadliest weapon in his arsenal and cocks his left eyebrow.

Talk about a license to kill.

Blake Lively Brings Back the Neon Trend in a Chartreuse Evening Gown and Fuchsia Coat

The Cannes Film Festival is typically where Blake Lively thrives. While there’s no red carpet the actress hasn’t met and conquered with aplomb, there’s something about those Riviera breezes and the pomp and circumstance of the French affair that brings out her diamond-encrusted sartorial best. But this year, the mother of two skipped the grand black tie affair, giving the next generation of supermodels a chance to shine and show off their finest evening wear jorts. Instead, Blake saved up all of that Old Hollywood elegance she usually reserves for the occasion, delivering it instead on the step and repeat for the American Ballet Theater’s annual Spring Gala.

The Shallows star arrived at the event wearing a blindingly bright neon yellow gown from Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, featuring a strapless peaked neckline that framed her cleavage with ruching throughout the bodice all gathered on the left side above a thigh-high slit. Lively let the sunny gown steal the show, keeping her accessories minimal, pairing the look with some medium-size turquoise studs, matching scattered rings with teal and pink gems, and glittery gold strappy sandals from Stuart Weitzman.

And her gown wasn’t the only place that Lively opted for a super saturated hue. The actress doubled-down on the neon trend, pairing her chartreuse evening gown with a super bright fuchsia cocoon coat belted casually at the waist.  She also carried a small glitter-covered black clutch that read “I Love You!!” in rainbow colors on one side and featured a glittery red back displaying a different message in blue. She kept her beauty look typically effortless with her hair pulled back into a low ponytail and minimal, fresh makeup. So while she may be playing a rough and tumble MMA fighter in her next movie role, until then she’s pulling out all of the super glam stops.

What do you think of Blake’s latest look? Sound of below!

‘Little Women’ Is Coming Back As A Three-Hour Miniseries On PBS

Whether you’re a Jo, a Meg, a Beth or an Amy, we have good news: your favorite treatise on girlhood and growing up is back.

Masterpiece and PBS announced on Thursday that the network has an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women underway, in conjunction with Colin Callender’s Playground and the BBC.

So far we know that the two-volume novel will be turned into a three-hour miniseries, though further details, such as casting choices or release dates, have yet to be announced. The U.K.-U.S. production team will begin principal photography as soon as July.

In a press release, series writer Heidi Thomas, who also adapted “Call the Midwife,” said the story’s “humanity, humor and tenderness never date, and as a study of love, grief and growing up it has no equal. There could be no better time to revisit the story of a family striving for happiness in an uncertain world […]”.

It seems that showrunners and filmmakers have shared this sentiment in the past. The March sisters have seen their share of on-screen time. The book was adapted in 1917, 1918, 1933, 1949, 1950, 1958, 1970, 1978 and 1994. Three of those remakes were BBC miniseries. The novel has also been turned into a Broadway play and two anime series. In 2015, The CW announced that it would take on Alcott’s story, but with a sci-fi bent; the project was later abandoned.

If you’re unfamiliar with the book, its story centers on Jo March and her three sisters as they come of age amid the American Civil War. The tale grapples with selfishness, will power and ambition, and is loosely based on Alcott’s own family.

Thomas said, “we hope to deliver a new screen version that will speak to contemporary audiences, meet the expectations of the book’s ardent fans and bring a whole new generation to this great classic.”

In the meantime, we’ll be waiting by our closest PBS-enabled device, collectively mending the family bed sheet in solidarity.

Barack And Michelle Obama Are Back From Vacation, And They’re Looking Slick

Barack and Michelle Obama are back from vacation and looking great. 

The former president and FLOTUS made an appearance in Chicago on Wednesday to discuss plans for the Obama Presidential Center.

Michelle wore a gorgeous black and white dress that reminded us of the sleek printed dresses from her White House wardrobe. Barack looked relaxed in a black suit, white shirt and no tie. 

At the event, Obama announced that he and Michelle will donate $ 2 million of their own money toward jobs for Chicago youth this summer. 

“We don’t want to wait for a building,” he said. “One of the things that we will be starting this year is Michelle and I personally are going to donate $ 2 million to our summer jobs programs here in the community, so that right away, young people can get to work and we can start providing opportunities to all of them.” 

Since leaving the White House in January, the two have taken time off to travel. They visited Palm Springs right after the inauguration, followed by a trip to Richard Branson’s private escape, Necker Island. 

From there, Obama headed to Marlon Brando’s old escape, Tetiaroa, in the South Pacific. He later met up with Michelle and a few of their famous friend (Tom Hanks, Oprah and Bruce Springsteen) to spend some time on billionaire David Geffen’s yacht.

Needless to say, we’re happy they’re back.

The Pope Rapping Meme Is Back And Better Than Ever

There’s nothing like a dank (and vaguely sacrilegious) meme to get your week started on the right foot. 

The hashtag #PopeBars was resurrected this weekend after Pope Francis was photographed talking to reporters aboard a plane flying from Cairo to Rome.

The public seems to thoroughly enjoy how Francis holds a microphone, something that was first noticed in fall 2015, when the #PopeBars meme first began.

Francis’ manner of holding a mic appears strikingly similar to a rapper’s, making it look like the religious leader is, uh, dropping bars.

The subsequent memes looked like this:

This time around, Francis was photographed talking about the very serious topic of mediating the current dispute between North Korea and Washington.

But, yet again, the photograph is what caught Twitter’s attention. Let’s get papal:

Dang. We’d see the pope in concert FOR SURE.

Get Your Keychains Ready: The Original Tamagotchi Is Back

It’s official: 2017 is the year the ‘90s came full circle.

Just like chokers, crop tops and platform sandals, the original Tamagotchi, a ‘90s kid staple, is back on the market.

Bandai, the Japan-based toy company responsible for the pocket pet craze, this year released on Amazon Japan a game modeled after the original Tamagotchi (the one with the basic, green-tinted LCD display), but people in the U.S. are just catching on now.

Bandai first debuted its pixelated pet game in Japan in 1996, and in the U.S. in 1997.

From then on, kids, teenagers and, let’s be honest, a few easily distracted adults, would eagerly wait for their Tamagotchi eggs to hatch into a pet made of the most basic digital graphics (read: literal pixels). Users had to feed their pet, play with it and pick up its poop with the help of three tiny rubber buttons.

And if anyone slacked in their parenting responsibilities, their digital darling would eventually die.

This isn’t the first Tamagotchi revival. In fact, the handheld classic toy never disappeared from the toy market.

Bandai has released a number of updated Tamagotchi products over the years, including models with multicolor displays, devices that allow users to raise entire families of Tamagotchi and a Tamagotchi game app for your iPhone. Katy Perry and Orlando Boom even wore the digital eggs to the tech-themed Met Gala in 2016

Despite a few missing icons and its slightly smaller size, the re-released Tamagatchi stays true to the original, with its monochromatic display and six original Tamagotchi characters, according to The Telegraph. 

They’re currently only available in Japan, but if you need to satisfy your #TBT vibes sooner, we suggest searching through your childhood closet for your old (and probably dead) pocket pet. Or you can buy one of the newer models on Amazon’s U.S. marketplace.

What Critics Said About ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Back In The 1980s

In 2017, Margaret Atwood is ascendant. The New Yorker has dubbed her the “Prophet of Dystopia.” The upcoming Hulu adaptation of her most well-known book, the feminist speculative novel The Handmaid’s Tale, long in the works, has turned out to be almost ludicrously well-timed to the political moment. Atwood, who has also written chilling speculative fiction about other timely issues (such as climate change), seems prescient to rattled liberals in a post-Trump election world. Everyone wants her thoughts on what’s happening and what’s to come.

The media can be fickle, however. The Handmaid’s Tale has become an oft-studied and -cited modern classic, but its initial reception didn’t necessarily foretell its induction into the canon. The New Yorker, per a perusal of its archives from the time, didn’t review it at all; The New York Times published a sniffy takedown by Mary McCarthy. At the time, the Christian Science Monitor described the book as mostly well-received by critics; meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle suggested that reviews had been poor enough as to make Atwood “defensive” during an interview with the publication.

We dug through the archives to remember what critics were saying about The Handmaid’s Tale back in 1986, when it was published in the U.S., and we found everything from tepid reactions to outright pans to glowing odes. The concept of a dystopia premised on the theocratic oppression of women, perhaps unsurprisingly, has always been polarizing.

Below, check out a selection of the original reviews of The Handmaid’s Tale:

The Ecstatic:

“Just as the world of Orwell’s 1984 gripped our imaginations, so will the world of Atwood’s handmaid. She has succeeded in finding a voice for her heroine that is direct, artless, utterly convincing. It is the voice of a woman we might know, of someone very close to us. In fact, it is Offred’s poignant sense of time that gives this novel its peculiar power. The immense changes in her life have come so fast that she is still in a state of shock and disbelief as she relates to us what she sees around her.” 

-Joyce Johnson, The Washington Post

“[A]mong other things, it is a political tract deploring nuclear energy, environmental waste, and antifeminist attitudes.

“But it so much more than that ― a taut thriller, a psychological study, a play on words. It has a sense of humor about itself, as well as an ambivalence toward even its worst villains, who aren’t revealed as such until the very end. Best of all, it holds out the possibility of redemption. After all, the Handmaid is also a writer. She has written this book. She may have survived.”

-Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

“Margaret Atwood’s cautionary tale of postfeminist future shock pictures a nation formed by a backlash against feminism, but also by nuclear accidents, chemical pollution, radiation poisoning, a host of our present problems run amok. Ms. Atwood draws as well on New England Puritan history for her repressive 22[n]d-century society. Her deft sardonic humor makes much of the action and dialogue in the novel funny and ominous at the same time.”

NYT Editor’s Choice pick, 1986 

The Ehhhh:

“Atwood, to her credit, creates a chillingly specific, imaginable night-mare. The book is short on characterization ― this is Atwood, never a warm writer, at her steeliest ― and long on cynicism ― it’s got none of the human credibility of a work such as Walker Percy’s Love In The Ruins. But the scariness is visceral, a world that’s like a dangerous and even fatal grid, an electrified fence. Tinny perhaps, but still a minutely rendered and impressively steady feminist vision of apocalypse.”

Kirkus

“Some details of Atwood’s bizarre anti-Utopia are at least as repellent as those in such forerunners as Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World in 1932 and George Orwell’s 1984 16 years later. Those two novels have come to be seen as fiercely moral tracts that jarred their readers to awaken them. Will Atwood, as different from Huxley and Orwell as they were from each other, join them in the accepted ranks of those disguised idealists who image the future as a nightmare in order that it may remain just that ― a fantasy? Certainly the early reviews of her book have been mainly positive.”

-Marilyn Gardner, The Christian Science Monitor

“Margaret Atwood’s new novel is being greeted as the long-awaited feminist dystopia and I am afraid that for some time it will be viewed as a test of the imaginative power of feminist paranoia […] As a dystopia, this is a thinly textured one. […] But if Offred is a sappy stand-in for Winston Smith, and Gilead seems at times to be only a coloring book version of Oceania, it may be because Atwood means to do more than scare us about the obvious consequences of a Falwellian coup d’état.”

-Barbara Ehrenreich, The New Republic 

“[Atwood’s] regime is a hodgepodge: a theocracy that’s not recognizably Christian, that most Christians don’t accept; a repressive measure borrowed from South Africa; an atrocity adopted by the Romanians. With no unifying vision, the center doesn’t hold.”

-Alix Madrigal, The San Francisco Chronicle

“As a cautionary tale, Atwood’s novel lacks the direct, chilling plausibility of Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World. It warns against too much: heedless sex, excessive morality, chemical and nuclear pollution. All of these may be worthwhile targets, but such a future seems more complicated than dramatic. But Offred’s narrative is fascinating in a way that transcends tense and time: the record of an observant soul struggling against a harsh, mysterious world.”

-Paul Gray, TIME

The Harsh:

The Handmaid’s Tale is watchable, but it’s also paranoid poppycock — just like the book. The actors are imprisoned in Atwood’s grimly inhuman design. […]

“What finally takes the cake for absurdity is a subplot featuring Aidan Quinn as Richardson’s handsome savior. It’s as if Atwood, after all that didactic scrubbing, couldn’t quite wash the princess fantasy out of her story. The Handmaid’s Tale is a tract that strives for sensitivity ― it lacks even the courage of its own misanthropy.”

-Owen Gleiberman, EW (on the 1990 film adaptation)

“The writing of The Handmaid’s Tale is undistinguished in a double sense, ordinary if not glaringly so, but also indistinguishable from what one supposes would be Margaret Atwood’s normal way of expressing herself in the circumstances. This is a serious defect, unpardonable maybe for the genre: a future that has no language invented for it lacks a personality. That must be why, collectively, it is powerless to scare.” 

-Mary McCarthy, The New York Times

“This cri de coeur is certainly impassioned, and Atwood’s adept style renders the grim atmosphere of the future quite palpably. But the didacticism of the novel wears thin; the book is simply too obvious to support its fictional context. Still, Atwood is quite an esteemed fiction writer, the author of such well-received novels as Surfacing (1973) and Life before Man (1980). Demand for her latest effort, therefore, is bound to be high; unfortunately, the number of disappointed readers may be equally high.”

-Brad Hooper, Booklist

Tim Coppens Begins to Peel Back the Layers

Tim Coppens is naturally shy, but the designer has learned that he needs to provide a glimpse into his life if he wants to build a business.
The Belgium-born Coppens, who attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and worked in the sports design department of Adidas as well as on Ralph Lauren’s RLX brand, created the Tim Coppens brand in 2012.
“I really had something I wanted to share personally,” he said. “I felt there was some sort of link with the fashion world and that was what I wanted to create.”
Although ath-leisure was just starting to have an impact, Coppens said at that time it was “still a very much of a sports thing and it wasn’t ready for the streets.” But “we live in a time when the merger of fashion and sports got a lot more visible.”
So he set out to fill what he saw as the gap between performance and fashion. “Suits were still there but how could we make those more fit for the guy of today,” he asked. “For me, I don’t want to go out in a suit everyday, but I still want something sporty in a nice material that feels comfortable

Chrissy Teigen Claps Back At Fox News For Tagging Her In Tweet

Chrissy Teigen has long been vocal on Twitter, getting in spats with Piers Morgan and slamming President Donald Trump. So when she was tagged in a tweet by Fox News, it made sense that she wouldn’t hold back her dissatisfaction. 

The right-leaning news organization shared a tweet about the recent United Airlines leggings controversy using Teigen’s handle and a photo of her. Previously, the left-leaning model and cookbook author had been one of many celebrities who called out the airline for hassling a reportedly 10-year-old girl for wearing leggings while attempting to board a flight.

Here’s the Fox News tweet: 

Teigen wasn’t impressed. The mother-of-one fired back with this gem: 

Plenty of folks replied to the tweet, praising Teigen for her response. Of course, a few also criticized the “Lip Sync Battle” host; one Twitter user called her a “cry baby.” 

Naturally, Teigen rose above her haters, retweeting some of their best shots and even using one as her new Twitter header photo.  

Thank you, Chrissy, for tweeting.

A Look Back At Fall Out Boy’s ‘Thnks Fr Th Mmrs’ On Its 10th Anniversary

Ten years ago, Fall Out Boy were at the height of their fame, but they weren’t really sure how they felt about it. 

Following up their 2005 breakthrough album, “From Under The Cork Tree,” the band released “Infinity on High,” ― a record that was largely dedicated to their first interactions with fame ― in February 2007.

“FUCT” had sold 3 million copies and produced two of the catchiest, radio-friendly rock singles of the mid-aughts; “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and “Dance, Dance.” In a few short years the band, comprising singer Patrick Stump, guitarist Joe Trohman, drummer Andy Hurley and bassist, lyricist and de facto frontman Pete Wentz, had gone from sleeping on strangers’ floors to headlining arena tours.

And Wentz ― one of the few male celebrities to endure a nude photo leak ― embraced his newfound fame as rumors he was romancing Michelle Trachtenberg, Lindsay Lohan and Ashlee Simpson swirled, while his clothing line and record label, among other business ventures, helped the band earn the nickname “Sell Out Boy.”

“Rock guys are like, ‘Fuck, I don’t want to do stuff like that.’ But look at the state of rock music. Bands can’t sell fucking records. The new rock stars are dudes like Jay-Z,” he told Rolling Stone in 2006, adding that he wanted Fall Out Boy to be “a culture. You’re going to eat, sleep and breathe it. I want it to be a way you think about the world.” 

A year later he told the magazine, “I want to be the biggest band on the planet.”

Those statements are at odds with many of the lyrics on “Infinity on High,” which is a largely a meditation on the perils of fame. It’s also why Def Jam president Jay Z is the first voice you hear on the album’s first track, “Thriller.” 

We dedicate this album to anybody people said couldn’t make it. To the fans that held us down till everybody came around, welcome. It’s here. 

It’s also a reminder of just how the band had come.  

Monday marks 10 years since Fall Out Boy released the album’s third single, “Thnks fr th Mmrs,” and, like the video for the their previous single “This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race,” it touched on the absurdities of fame. This time around, it showed the band filming a video while being directed by a chimpanzee. 

While the song itself is mostly about a broken relationship, it also alluded to the Hollywood starlets to whom Wentz was romantically linked, as in lyrics like, “They say I only think in the form of crunching numbers / In hotel rooms collecting Page Six lovers.” 

Ironically, the video co-starred Kim Kardashian as Wentz’s love interest. At the time, Kardashian was just starting to earn her own headlines in Page Six. She was then best known as Paris Hilton’s friend. Her sex tape leaked just a month before FOB’s video dropped. 

“I’m a fan of Fall Out Boy and I agreed to do it,” Kardashian told Newstimes in 2007. “And it was so much fun working with them. … I think music videos kind of all show the same thing. They kind of want a hot girl and cool cars. This one was totally different.” 

The band couldn’t have known that Kardashian would go on to become the reigning tabloid queen, but Wentz quickly became a tabloid fixture as soon as he revealed he was dating Ashlee Simpson, whom he’d been linked to since 2006.  

The band’s success and Wentz’s love life weighed on the band. Their next album, “Folie a Deux,” focused on themes similar to their last.   

“Rock stars have been making records about rock stardom for decades, but few have had such fun singing about the absurdities, the narcissism — and, as the album title suggests, the follies — of a life lived in fame’s strobelit glare,” Rolling Stone’s Jody Rosen wrote in a review of the 2008 album. 

When the band announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus in November 2009, Wentz told Kerrang! that he felt his high-profile relationship with Simpson and his personal life had become a “hindrance for the band.”

“I think the world needs a little less Pete Wentz. A lot of people think Fall Out Boy is me. But it’s the four of us. I want to fucking vomit when I read intros that say, ‘Pete Wentz: accidental internet poster boy.’ It makes me feel ugly,” the band’s frontman explained at the time.

The band’s hiatus lasted three years. Fall Out Boy has since released two albums. When the 10th anniversary of “Infinity on High” rolled around last month, Wentz reflected on the album in a short blog post on the band’s website:

this one was strange. it was transitional. If FUCT was the caterpillar album- Infinity On High was the cocoon one. we had been on tour around the world nonstop but hadn’t really seen any of the magazine covers we were on or had any perspective of seeing our videos on TRL- it was odd how everything was changing but it felt like we were in a time capsule… this record would bring so many ideas from jay z doing the intro to working with baby face on “thnks fr th mmrs” to the flight 101 saga (3 shows in a day in ny, chicago, and la)… but first and foremost it documented this blur that had become our lives. this record more than any of the others has always reminded me of night time- both the anxiety of insomnia and the peace of being awake when everyone else is asleep. i remember before we released it i used like a security blanket listening and trying to fall asleep. i really appreciate everyone who gave this one a chance. 

“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.” vincent van gogh

Cuban Percussionist and Vocalist Pedrito Martinez: A Look Back on the Journey Thus Far

2017-02-08-1486580094-5061721-PedritoCover6copy.jpg

By Dan Ouellette, Senior Editor ZEALnyc, February 9, 2017

Unless something unexpected happens (and given this political season, it’s a great possibility), 2017 will fill the air with more Cuban music by the best the island nation has to offer. Cuba has quickly become a destination for musical talent in the U.S. in search of the source of all popular music today. And then there are the U.S.-based artists who are celebrating the bridge being reopened between the two countries. A prime example: percussionist/vocalist Pedrito Martinez who has performed with a range of artists searching for top-tier percussion including Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Paquito D’Rivera and Bruce Springsteen. He is also lauded by the great Latin jazz star Rubén Blades, who says, “In a musical world so filled with counterfeit output, it is refreshing to see a genuine talent like Pedrito emerge. Always curious, forever searching, restless, he’s the type of artist whose product is forever fresh and vital.”

Pedrito, who calls New Jersey home these days, grew up in Cuba, was schooled in the Afro-Cuban tradition in the streets of his barrio, made the journey to the U.S. through his prowess on the congas, then returned to his homeland a few years ago to record his latest album…a true sign that the thaw has begun.

David Beckham and UNICEF Fight Back Over Alleged Hacked Emails: ‘Let the Facts Speak for Themselves’

David Beckham is responding to reports he allegedly used his UNICEF charity work to campaign for a knighthood.

“This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture,” a spokesperson for Beckham tells PEOPLE in a statement. 

“David and UNICEF have had a powerful partnership in support of children for over 15 years. The David Beckham 7 Fund specifically has raised millions of pounds and helped millions of vulnerable children around the world,” the statement continued.

Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005.

On Friday, British newspaper The Sun published reportedly leaked emails between Beckham and his publicist from 2013 where they discussed the soccer star working on securing a knighthood in 2013. (Beckham was awarded an OBE, or Order of the British Empire, in 2003.) After Beckham allegedly complained that British singer Katherine Jenkins was awarded an OBE and calling it “a f—— joke,” Beckham’s rep urged him to focus his energy on his charitable efforts.

Beckham also allegedly railed against the committee who decides who get the honors, calling them “a bunch of c—-” and saying he “expected nothing less.”

“It’s a disgrace to be honest and if I was American I would of got something like this ten years ago,” Beckham allegedly said.

In February 2015, Beckham launched the 7 Fund to raise funds and awareness for vulnerable children by focusing on seven different countries and seven different initiatives.

“David has given significant time and energy and has made personal financial donations to the 7 Fund and this commitment will continue long term,” the statement added. “Before establishing the 7 Fund, David had supported UNICEF and a number of other charities over many years, including donating his entire earnings from PSG during his time playing there.”

Concluding, “David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.”

RELATED VIDEO: A David Beckham Underwear Ad with a Twist!

On Friday, UNICEF released a statement, defending their partnership with Beckham.

“Some reports relate to alleged private correspondence between our ambassador and other parties, which we have not seen and cannot comment upon,” the statement read. “David Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005, and as well as generously giving his time, energy and support to help raise awareness and funds for UNICEF’s work for children, David has given significant funds personally.”

The organization also noted Beckham’s last UNICEF trip in June 2016 when he traveled to Africa to visit children living with HIV, who are receiving support from his charity 7 and UNICEF.

In addition to his reported complaints about not getting a knighthood, the alleged emails also included Beckham’s supposed reluctance to donate his own money to charity and his rep urging the soccer star not to post a photo of his gold-plated laptop on social media so as not to ruin his “man of the people” reputation.

Ivanka Trump Executive Strikes Back, Claiming Expansion Continues Across Categories and Distribution

WILL THE OTHER SHOE DROP?: Is Neiman Marcus cutting ties with the Ivanka Trump company to stop selling its jewelry?
That possibility was hashed out and (asserted by some) web sites Friday after noting that Ivanka Trump fine jewelry was no longer available on Neiman Marcus’ web site. But the retailer presented a different picture.
A Neiman Marcus spokeswoman said Friday, “Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business, which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor). Based on productivity, we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our web site, or both.”
Executives at Neiman Marcus did not respond to requests for comment about whether that arrangement will continue for fall. Unlike the Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories that are sold in department stores and specialty stores and are geared for working women, the label’s fine jewelry is more expensive and is not sold in mass stores.
Meanwhile, executives at Ivanka Trump have broken their silence about the state of the business, after a few weeks of declining to comment. Rosemary K. Young, senior director of marketing at Ivanka Trump, said in a statement Friday, “The Ivanka Trump brand continues to expand across

‘South Park’ Guys To ‘Back Off’ Mocking Trump For A Sad Reason

South Park” is done with Trump ― at least for the moment.

The show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, said in an Australian interview Thursday that they’ve decided to “back off” on satirizing President Donald Trump because his administration is already creating tough-to-top comedy.

“It’s really tricky now because satire has become reality,” Parker told the show “7.30.”

“It’s really hard to make fun of,” Parker continued. “We were really trying to make fun of what was going on but we couldn’t keep up … and what was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with.”

“So we decided to kind of back off and let them do their comedy and we’ll do ours,” he said.

Stone added that fans have told them that they have “all this good material” as if the two should be happy about it. “It doesn’t feel that way,” Stone said.

In any case, the pair won’t be working on any new episodes for several months.
