Our Sneak Peek at Netflix’s Maniac Will Probably Just Confuse You

This September, IGN is highlighting the best TV coming your way in the 2018-2019 season.

Lauren Conrad Shares Her Fall Denim Tips and the Jeans Style You Probably Won’t See Her in Again

With fall right around the corner, there’s no better time to refresh your denim collection — and let’s just say that shopping for the perfect pair of jeans isn’t always the easiest process. There’s so much to consider – wash, affordability, comfort, style, fit — the list goes on. So, to ease the pain and help with this often challenging task, we’ve partnered with Lauren Conrad, who recently launched her newly redesigned collection of LC Lauren Conrad denim for Kohl’s, to share her tips.

“Denim is always going to be a staple in everyone’s closet. That’s what makes finding the right pair so important,” says Conrad.

And no one-in-one-out policy here! “If you find a really good pair, it’s okay to hold onto them,” she says.

In the exclusive video below, Conrad reveals she owns about 20 pairs of jeans — and much more. Watch to find out her denim confessions:

Go-To Daytime Denim Look:

When hanging and working from home, she likes to pair high-waisted skinnies with a t-shirt and flats. To dress the same style up, she suggests adding a heel and flowy top.

Shop the Look! Weekend Ruffle-Trim Tee, $ 30Sheen Ballet Flats, $ 49.99; Feel Good Skinny Jeans, $ 50; Hydrangea High Heels, $ 59.99; similar style Love, Lauren Shirred Peasant Top, $ 44

Go-To Denim Date Night Outfit

For a causal, yet dressy date-night look, Conrad suggests pairing a darker wash jean with fancier, more upscale pieces to dress it up the denim. And adding a sexy little heel is also a fun way to dress up the look she adds.

Shop the Look! Smocked Swiss Dot Top, $ 40; Windflower High Heels, $ 59.99; Feel Good Super Skinny Jeans, $ 50

What to Look for When Shopping for a Distressed Jean

When it comes to rips and tears, Conrad says “You don’t want to get irresponsible with it.” But she loves the laid-back look. “Light destruction is great.”

Distressed Straight Slim Leg Jean, $ 50

One Denim Style She’d Never Wear Again

When it comes to a jeans style the designer won’t wear again, she hesitates to say, “Who even knows because all styles come back”, but as of now she’s swearing off the cuffed capri style. (Hey, Laguna Beach days!)

3 Denim Styles Everyone Should Have in Their Closet

When it comes to must-own denim styles, the designer recommends looking for different washes, because certain colors are appropriate for different settings. For something really casual, she suggests a distressed pair or something very lightweight and for something in-between, look for a lighter wash with little distressing. When looking for a for jean that you can really dress up or down, she suggests a darker wash that’s very clean so you could even wear them to work!

Every Thought You Probably Had When You First Heard Channing & Jenna Split Up

It’s a sad day for Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan shippers.

After nearly nine years of marriage, the actors, who first met on the set of 2006’s Step Up, have “lovingly chosen to separate”, sharing the news in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE on Monday night.

As we attempt to recollect ourselves, we’re turning to a slew of Twitter users who seemed to have perfectly captured our wide range of feelings on the breakup. From mourning the demise of the pair’s seemingly picture-perfect relationship to fawning over a newly-single Channing, these folks just get us.

‘Frozen’ Has A Ridiculous/Hilarious Disclaimer You Probably Never Noticed

 

Nearly a year and half after Disney’s “Frozen” hit theaters, it’s still a cultural tour de force,  having grossed $ 1.2 billion worldwide at the box office, influencing the monikers of a generation to come, and just, well … whatever this is. 

Odds are you’ve seen it more than once, and you’ve likely asked someone if they wanted to build a snowman, but have you stuck around long enough to watch the entire credits roll? 

Our friends over at HuffPost Canada did, and they found that there’s a ridiculous/hilarious disclaimer that was probably tacked on, lest they be subject to the complaints of some MRAs or something. Kidding. Maybe. Enjoy.

Daniel Radcliffe Has Probably Traveled Through Time Just To Mess With Us All

Are we sure time-turners don’t exist? Because Daniel Radcliffe looks an awful lot like the men and women in these old-timey photos unearthed by people on Reddit.

For a man who once wore the same outfit for months just to mess with the paparazzi, we wouldn’t put it past him to pull a prank of this scale — if, you know, magic were real. Which it’s not. Probably.

We’ll have to wait for October to roll around for his next onscreen performance, but maybe there’s a yellowing snapshot in an old shoebox tucked away in someone’s attic waiting to be discovered before then.

“Not-Daniel Radcliffe” was really living it up in the past …

Listening to some jams in the 1940s.


Reddit user gaztruman posted this supposedly 70-year-old photo of a crowd at Band on the Wall Manchester, a music venue.

Kidding around with some pals.


Reddit user microwavetea posted this photo, captioned “My grandma is a time-traveling Daniel Radcliffe.” That guy in the middle did not get the joke.

Making the most of those golden high-school days.


Pictured above with a wee Andy Samberg, Reddit user tackytick says they found this photo in an old yearbook from 1978.

Looking prim and proper with a string of pearls — and some very familiar glasses.


Reddit user gurbla posted this photo of a time-traveling wizard!!! respectable gentlewoman.

Posing prettily for the camera.


According to Reddit user Waldenponds16, this is lady is a prostitute in the 1800s. All we see is Harry having some fun.

One Of These 21 Movies Will Probably Win Best Picture At The 2015 Oscars

best picture

Welcome to For Your Consideration, HuffPost Entertainment’s breakdown of all things Oscar. Between now and Feb. 22, 2015, entertainment managing editor Christopher Rosen and entertainment editor Matthew Jacobs will pore over awards season and discuss which films will make the most noise at the 87th annual Academy Awards.

The finish line is here. We are two weeks away from the Oscar nominations, which means studios need to put any last-minute campaigning into overdrive. With voting having already opened (see our dream ballots here), it stands to reason that the state of the race has more or less been determined. Still, we hope to see plenty of surprises when the nominations arive on Jan. 15, especially in the Best Picture field, where the number of nominees remains a question mark. (Since a 2011 rule change, the Academy Awards can nominate anywhere between five and 10 films for Best Picture.) There’s arguably still no clear front-runner, but five movies (“Selma,” “Boyhood,” “The Imitation Game,” “Birdman” and “The Theory of Everything”) seem like guarantees, with ample contenders trying to edge their way into the remaining slots. Here are the 21 movies competing in the marathon:

If You Love ‘Serial,’ You Probably Have More In Common With Weegee Than You Think

On October 3, 2014, “This American Life” producer Sarah Koenig began telling a very specific story. She introduced public radio listeners to a man named Adnan Syed, who may or may not have been wrongly convicted of killing his former girlfriend, an 18-year-old Baltimore resident named Hae Min Lee, back in 1999.

The rest is… Well, you know the rest by now.

Koenig set her sights on unraveling Syed’s guilty verdict, a decision that — today, at least — seems laced with doubt. What began as a small weekly investigation of this strange case, quickly evolved into a show with a five-million-person audience. “Serial” has since spawned countless Reddit subgroups, a new genre of podcasts about podcasts and a nearly nation-wide obsession with a crime committed 15 years ago.

As we wait for the conclusion of Koenig’s investigation, it’s impossible not to think about America’s current fascination with crime. As well as its past. We were reminded of an early 20th century icon, enraptured by the crisis and conflict of New York City’s crime scenes. Arthur Fellig, or Weegee as he’s pseudonymously known, was one of the most famous street photographers of the 1900s, who captured decades of violence with his stunning, monochromatic eye. He was obsessed with crime years and years before Koenig. And, probably, years and years before you.

weegee crime

In fact he kept a radio in his car tuned to the police frequency, and was often able to reach the scene before the police themselves. (Photo by Weegee(Arthur Fellig)/International Center of Photography/Getty Images)

Felig was born in Austria in 1899, emigrating to the United States in 1910. In his early career, he spent time as an assistant to a commercial photographer and a dark-room technician, but it wasn’t until 1935 that he threw himself into freelance photography. He chose to work at night, racing to the scenes of crimes to snap the first photographs of murders, collisions and thefts for newspapers across New York City. He earned his nickname that way — appropriated from Ouiji — because he was nearly always the first photographer on site. He seemed to have an eerie ability to arrive before even the police. He was, in his own words, “spellbound by the mystery of murder.”

Working with his signature Speed Graphic camera, his images were seedy, but captivating. One aspect of his work that set him apart was that he caught glimpses of the officers digesting evidence and the onlookers attempting to peek through barricades, all the while standing before corpses and crashes. The expressions of these people were not necessarily sensational in their own right, but the landscapes functioned as behind-the-scenes footage. All of a sudden, the viewer was privy to a police investigation, fixated not only on the tragic, almost ungraspable elements of a crime scene, but the very human qualities too. What is the police chief thinking? What is that eye witness feeling? Even in black-and-white, it was easy to insert ourselves into his photography. We became a part of the drama.

weegee crime

And isn’t that, after all, what makes Koenig’s “Serial” so alluring? Hasn’t she, in the process of telling Syed’s story, transformed millions of radio fans into self-possessed detectives? We believe, in some small way, the answers that could help put this very real, and very devastating saga to rest are within our reach. Koenig might not provide it for us, but perhaps we’ll stumble upon the clues ourselves.

“For all of the work [Koenig’s] done over the past year, each installment gets us no closer to a definitive truth, at least thus far,” Stephanie Merry wrote in The Washington Post Blog. “That helps to explain the fanaticism.”

“I feel like the story we are telling is partly what happened here, what can we find out, and part of that question is my reporting,” Koenig herself explained to Vulture. “I’m in this story now, for better or for worse, as a character.” And so too, it seems, are the listeners.

Later in life Weegee went on to cover the celebrity world, an ominous transition from one form of sensation to another. (Especially given the fact that “Serial” fans are not shy about their desire for a “Hollywood” ending.) He also produced a beautiful collection of abstract imagery, from nudes to kaleidoscopic figures. But his early career, and his dark body of work, is often what we can’t help but remember. See a selection of that work below.

Let’s Talk: Mistakes You Probably Make When Talking To Your Spouse

By Katie Parsons for KnowMore.tv

If you’re married, then you’re probably familiar with the knot you get in your stomach when you have to bring up a sensitive issue with your spouse. Discussing difficult topics — whether it be about money, parenting, sex, etc.– is never easy, and there are many things you can say or do that make the situation worse.

Tension arises over an array of issues, according to Catherine Bronza, an Orlando, FL-based psychotherapist who uses a short-term structured psychotherapy approach with clients called the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy Model (EFT). But no matter what the hot button topic is, Bronza says that there are seven conversation habits that you should STOP doing so your discussion doesn’t spiral into a heated argument.

1. You’re ready for combat.

Avoid combat mentality when you enter, or are invited, into a difficult conversation with your spouse. The discussion isn’t about winning points by cutting down your opponent. It should be about working together to find a solution to the problem.

Both parties need to feel safe and supported in order to take the risk and muster of the courage to present a tough topic. “It takes vulnerability, honesty, courage and a bit of risk to get difficult topics aired out and addressed productively,” says Bronza. Put down your boxing gloves and navigate the conversation with care.

2. You blame your spouse.

It’s not easy to take responsibility for problems in a marriage, especially if you don’t feel that you’re at fault. But don’t assume that your spouse is completely to blame either. You need to listen with an open mind and heart and remember that there are two sides to ever situation. Marriage is a partnership and you need to play fairly.

3. You resort to name calling.

Please don’t act like you’re 9 years old when you’re not getting your way! Respect for your partner is the first step toward resolution, says Bronza. This means knowing what topics may be super-sensitive and not reacting harshly. “Even if your spouse resorts to name calling, try to keep your cool and bring the discussion back to a positive place.”

4. Your tone is nasty.

Your approach to the conversation is just as important as the message. “What’s more, the message will be completely lost or misinterpreted if the other person feels attacked,” warns Bronza. Remember that you’re not scolding your spouse; you’re looking for a way to find answers together.

5. Your timing is off.

Even if you’re ready to boil over with all that you want to say to your spouse, pick the right time to have the conversation.

The topic should be addressed as an invitation to discuss something that’s important to you, and you should be clear-headed and calm. “It helps to start with an ‘I statement,'” suggests Bronza. “This is when a person will say something like, ‘I’m struggling with something right now. I need your help in figuring this out. Are you open to talk for a little while?'”

If your partner isn’t in a space where he or she can be fully engaged, then plan for a time to talk when he or she is totally available.

6. You bicker in front of others.

Keep your struggles between you and your spouse… period. “Bringing up negative issues around others, even children or other family members, brings a natural defensiveness that can be difficult to break down later on,” says Bronza.

7. You use negative body language.

The way you feel on the inside will manifest itself in your facial expressions and the way you carry yourself, so be conscious of this barrier. When possible, be on the same level as your spouse (so you’re either both sitting or standing) and even try to hold his or her hand if the moment feels right. “Show that you’re not walled off from your spouse, but that you’re open to working through the problem together,” advises Bronza.

Couples should never completely bottle up negativity out of fear of backlash, though. It’s important to keep the lines of communication clear and open in order to grow together.

“When issues are left to simmer, they eventually boil over and cause damage to the relationship,” warns Bronza. “It really helps to stay in the moment with each other and talk things out as they occur. Relationships thrive on good clear communication.”

We wish this couple many satisfying years together.

As a Wife, I’m Guilty of These 5 Mistakes (And You Probably Are, Too)

After writing “I’m Guilty of These 5 Parenting Mistakes (And You Probably Are, Too),” I knew that I needed to write a post that pays homage to the major muck-ups that I make as a wife. Maybe I’ll also blog about the mistakes that I make as a rainbow loom maker, Turbo Tax user and fitted sheet folder. Seriously, when it comes to mistakes, I’m experienced on how to make them in all areas.

My husband and I have been together for 12 years. It’s sometimes hard to believe that if our relationship were a person it would be in the seventh grade, donning shiny braces and saying asinine things like “cray cray” and “totes.”

Like all relationships, we’ve had our ups and downs. We’ve had arguments that ended with slamming doors and Michelin tires screeching down the driveway. We’ve declared our love and apologies over the phone once our tempers and transmissions cooled down. We’ve talked out our problems until the sun came up or one of husband’s farts lightened the mood. We’ve prayed together, cried together, laughed together and gotten food poisoning together after eating disgusting undercooked burgers doused in Heinz 57.

Most importantly, we have prevailed. We have persevered. We are raising two unbelievable children (despite our parenting mistakes), and we both have the same vision of someday pointing our rocking chairs towards the west, watching our grandchildren score major grass stains on the lawn and sharing Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements.

However, as a wife, I make mistakes. And I make them often. I don’t need other wives telling me what mistakes I make, because I’m aware of them. You don’t need me telling you what mistakes you make, either, but you probably make these.

1. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

I sometimes forget that my husband is my husband. He’s been around for so long that it seems like he’s just some dude leaving crumbs of Wavy Lays on the couch and dirty boxers on the floor right next to the hamper. I forget that he’s a hard worker, a wonderful provider and a loving father. I forget that sometimes my sarcasm and jokes hit below the belt. I forget that my job as his wife is to encourage him, compliment him, value him and support him. I often forget that he deserves my utmost respect.

2. Let’s Get It On

I’m tired. I’m tired a lot. By 9 p.m., the only things on my mind are folding the laundry, putting the kids’ snacks in their backpacks, locking the doors, feeding the malnourished fish, setting the clocks, brushing my teeth, lotioning my ashy elbows and getting into the bed to watch a show that does NOT involve animated pirates, sappy music while Danny Tanner resolves an issue, restoring cars or selling rare finds at a Las Vegas pawn shop. I want to relax and heave a collected sigh of relief that the day is done. I have no desire to play birds and bees. But, by God, men need it. They might just implode if they don’t get it. My husband is just as in need as the hungry Beta Fish. I often forget that I’m the one that must meet the need, whether or not I’m in the need-meeting mood.

3. Nothing Compares 2 U

Since the day my first child was born in 2006, she has been my reason for living. When her brother came along in 2010, he ranked right next to her on my priorities list. My children’s happiness and well-being far trumps anything in my life. Sometimes their needs trump my husband’s happiness and well-being. Date night shouldn’t solely be about my SAHM batteries recharging and how many margaritas I can consume before it’s time to go home. It should be about refreshing our relationship. I often forget that my husband needs my attention, my encouragement and my admiration as much as, if not more than, my children.

4. Control

I may make a ton of mistakes, but I know how to properly load a dishwasher. I also know how to hang a picture where it will be the most aesthetically pleasing in our home. I can discipline a kid and cook a meatloaf and I can pick out window treatments. I don’t need help in any of these areas, but my husband sometimes thinks that he should deposit two pennies into those accounts. Before I even hear his suggestion on how to cram more dishes into the dishwasher or where to hang the portrait or how to spice up dinner, I shoot him down (see no. 1, R-E-S-P-E-C-T). Sometimes I make him think that his idea is the worst idea since Miley Cyrus squatted on a wrecking ball. I often forget that my husband has pretty good ideas and although I’ll never admit it to him, that picture would look better over the mantle.

5. Pretty Woman

I once sent my husband the most brutally honest text message: “Let me know what time you’ll be home so I can get out of my pajamas and appear to have been productive today.” Some days the extent of my beauty regimen is brushing my teeth and popping the zit on my chin. If it’s a particularly cold day, I refuse to wear anything that didn’t come from the Gap Athletic Wear Collection. (FYI — you don’t have to actually be athletic to wear athletic wear). But, I know my husband appreciates it when I look nice. He never fails to tell me that I look beautiful when I’ve cleaned up and accessorized with scarves and dangly earrings. Some women like to believe that “inner beauty” is all a man needs. Newsflash — it’s not. Inner beauty is a wonderful, pure, lovely, noble thing. But a man also appreciates a nice-looking woman. I’m not saying that all women should morph into June Cleaver and mop Kool-Aid from the floor while wearing stilettos, but I often forget that removing eye boogers, washing the Crisco from my hair and trading the yoga pants for regular clothes once in a while is a step in the right direction.

Some days I feel as if I’ve really mucked up the whole wife-y thing. I rudely rolled my eyes at my husband, I didn’t pat him on the back when he really needed it, I put my own needs and my children’s needs before his. And the guilt sets in because I’ve got a really good man — he’s faithful, he’s hard-working, he’s kind, he’s easy-going. Watching him interact with our children still melts my heart and makes me smile.

I often forget to do the right thing in our marriage, but I’ll never forget how much I love my husband. That love is what fuels my desire to be better. That love is what makes me better today than yesterday. That love is the same love that will be in my heart when we rock on our back porch and watch our children and grandchildren. That love will be there when I forget to buy him Miralax or put tennis balls on his walker. I’ll always make mistakes, but that love will always remain.
