Star Wars: Did Snoke Want Luke Skywalker to Join Him Instead of Kylo Ren?

The ever-mysterious Snoke got a rare moment in the spotlight thanks to Star Wars: Age of Resistance – Supreme Leader Snoke #1 by writer Tom Taylor and artist Leonard Kirk, and the issue implies that Snoke’s master plan originally involved recruiting Luke Skywalker instead of Kylo Ren.

Warning: full spoilers ahead!

The one-issue story takes place before the events of The Force Awakens and sees Snoke travel to Dagobah to train his apprentice, Kylo Ren. As they approach the same Force cave Luke once visited in Empire Strikes Back, Snoke refers to Luke as “one of the most formidable Jedi,” which prompts an annoyed Kylo Ren to ask Snoke why he speaks of Luke with such respect.

Rumor: Marcus Morris left agent Rich Paul over backing out of Spurs deal to join Knicks

Thes are the facts on the ground: Powerful agent Rich Paul negotiated a two-year, $ 20 million contract for Marcus Morris with the Spurs, and he verbally agreed to it. The Spurs made a series of moves to clear out the cap space to honor that agreement. However, by the time the moratorium ended and players could sign deals, Morris had started to move on and soon reached a new, one-year, $ 15 million contract with the Knicks.

Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine Join Forces for Capsule Collection to Benefit Dress for Success Benefit

For its fourth cobranded collaboration with O, The Oprah Magazine to benefit Dress for Success, Talbots is anchored in the kicked-back “T by Talbots” line.
This year’s cobranded, limited-run collection leans on comfort to remind shoppers about the importance of self-care and to help them keep up appearances while on the go. O and Talbots recruited four active personalities to help spread the word — ABC’s “American Housewife” star Katy Mixon, former Olympian and fitness guru Angela Manuel-Davis, cohost of the Food Network’s “The Kitchen” Katie Lee and actor and musician Amber Riley.
During last month’s three-day “Girls’ Getaway” Holland America-O cruise, the 2,700 guests (of which 60 were men) had first dibs on the five-piece special collection and 30-plus styles from Talbots’ spring line in the O Shop. And Talbots hosted a “Love That!” fashion show where O’s creative director Adam Glassman shared his fashion advice with hundreds of women, styling the capsule collection with Talbots’ spring items. The magazine’s editor at large Gayle King was also on deck for the maiden voyage of Holland America’s “Nieuw Statendam,” as well as 25 “Mag Insiders.” When all was said and done, many cruise-goers headed to shore with three or four Talbots purchases,

Young Royals Join Queen at Sandringham for Christmas Day Service

FAMILY SPIRIT: Royals young and old came out in force for the Christmas Day church service at St. Magdalene’s church near Queen Elizabeth’s country estate in Sandringham, England.
This was Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s, first Christmas as the wife of Prince Harry.
She arrived wearing a Victoria Beckham navy coat and midi knit dress, showing off her baby bump. She paired it with a feathered hat and a modernist, structured clutch bag, also designed by Beckham.
The Duchess of Cambridge – who walked beside the newly married couple with Prince William – wore a more classic burgundy coat by British designer Catherine Walker, with a matching headband and Jimmy Choo pointed-toe pumps.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the latter with her new husband Jack Brooksbank, were also among the churchgoers.
They greeted members of the public, who also attended, and shared holiday wishes.
The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Philip didn’t attend. Both are fighting a winter cold.
As per tradition, the royal family had a black tie dinner on Christmas Eve, where they exchanged presents. They will also get together for Christmas lunch at Sandringham, the Queen’s country estate in Norfolk.

Celine to Join Paris Men’s Wear Calendar in January

FOR THE BOYS: The Paris men’s calendar just gained another heavy hitter: Celine will stage a show in January, mere months after creative director Hedi Slimane launched its men’s wear division during a coed show on Sept. 28, a spokeswoman for the brand said on Monday.
This follows the decision by Givenchy to switch back to the men’s wear fashion calendar for the fall 2019 with a presentation on Jan. 16, as reported.
Celine is in talks with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode on an exact date for its display, which could also include a handful of women’s designs, though no decision has been taken, the spokeswoman said.
The move comes at a time when a growing number of brands are opting to present women’s and men’s wear at the same time. Maison Margiela staged its first coed show this season, while brands including Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Haider Ackermann and Sonia Rykiel featured models of both sexes on the catwalk.
French conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton is making a high-profile push into the booming men’s wear market with the launch of the category at Celine, an increased focus on men’s at Givenchy, as well as the appointment of

Disney Villains and The Blonds Join Forces for Runway Show

DISNEY’S MOST WICKED HIT THE RUNWAY: Some of Disney’s most wicked characters will be taking center stage during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 7. Luxury fashion brand The Blonds will present their spring 2019 runway collection at Spring Studios, inspired by several of Disney’s most devilish characters.
The Blonds, cofounded by designer Phillipe Blond and creative director David Blond, will feature looks inspired by Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Evil Queen, The Queen of Hearts, Dr. Facillier, Ursula and her dark eel minions Flotsam and Jetsam.

The Blonds team up with Disney Villains for its runway show Sept. 7. 

“The Disney Villains style is iconic and has inspired us since childhood and throughout our career. The opportunity to collaborate with Disney and see these designs come to life on The Blonds runway is an absolute dream come true,” said Phillipe Blond.
“What drew us to working with Disney Villains are the complex attributes of the characters themselves,” said David Blond. “Often misunderstood, Disney Villains are flawed, imposing and mysterious, and we loved the idea of taking these characteristics and translating them in a glamorous way, making them the heroes of our story.”

Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s Hollister brand is gearing up for back-to-school with a partnership with singer-songwriters Khalid and Noah Cyrus, who will help raise awareness of the issue of bullying at school.
In mid-September, the retailer will begin showcasing its support of Sit With Us, an antibullying app created by Natalie Hampton to help students find allies and lunch buddies at school.

Birkenstock and Berlin Porcelain Maker KPM Join Forces on Limited-Edition Sandal Collection

Strange Bedfellows: On the heels of its most recent collaboration with Rick Owens as well as this year’s assorted Birkenstock Box cooperations with retailers the world over, the footwear maker has tapped a somewhat unlikely royal partner for the latest take on the brand’s iconic Arizona and Gizeh cork footbed sandals: KPM Berlin.
Founded in 1763 and thus 11 years older than Birkenstock, the highly respected Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur provided its Kurland Royal Noir pattern as well as a signature porcelain inset for the limited-edition Birkenstock x KPM. There are four models in all, the Arizona and Gizeh in black-on-black embossed leather, and both models in a black and gold Royal Noir print. Limited to 300 pieces per style, the sandals are available exclusively at Berlin’s leading premium department store KaDeWe through June 9, as well as online at for 280 euros a pop. For those who’d like to wear their Birkenstocks and have a matching cup of coffee, too, a large-sized KPM Kurland Royal Noir cup and saucer will set one back 1,190 euros.

Exclusive: Gucci to Join Paris Fashion Week This Fall

MILAN — Continuing to speak with a French accent this year, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele is joining Paris Fashion Week this fall, WWD has learned.
Decamping from Milan for one season, the Italian luxury brand is to parade its spring-summer 2019 collection in the French capital on Sept. 24. The show marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by Michele, creative director.
“Gucci is a global brand with deep and vibrant Italian roots and a visionary French shareholder, Kering,” said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci. “When Alessandro told me of his desire to present the new collection in Paris — continuing the French-inspired narrative — I thought it was a perfect way to continue the creative homage to France.”
Bizzarri underscored that the show date marks the “transition day between Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to avoid impacting schedules. We will then look forward to returning to Milan in February 2019.”
While foregoing a show in Milan for the season, the company is planning a special event to be held at the Gucci Hub on Wednesday, Sept. 19, the second day of Milan Women’s Fashion Week, scheduled to run Sept. 18-24. Details about the event are being kept under wraps.

Nathalie Emmanuel to Join Reebok’s Ambassador Team

Reebok has tapped actress Nathalie Emmanuel to join a high-profile group of women who will appear in the brand’s first female-skewed campaign later this year.
Emmanuel, an English actress best known for her role of Missandei on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” will join Gigi Hadid, Ariana Grande and Gal Gadot and others, in the upcoming Reebok campaign. Emmanuel, who also stars as Megan Ramsey in the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, is a well-known feminist and civil rights activist.

This new partnership with Reebok is founded upon shared passion and synergy with individuality. Together, we are passionate about an agenda that spotlights the individual abilities of women and propels their stories forward.”
Todd Krinsky, general manager of Reebok Performance, said Emmanuel “is a hugely important addition to our powerful female coalition of inspirational journeys, passions, beliefs and inspirations.

Rugby-Inspired Aedelhard Wants Men to Join Its Team

The new men’s wear brand Aedelhard believes rugby teaches important values and lessons to its participants, and has aligned itself with the sport. That the game can be intensely competitive and at times violent is not lost on the brand.
“Beneath the seeming barbarism and occasional debauchery often associated with rugby lives a sport rooted in respect and a strict code of conduct,” Aedelhard declares on its web site. “It’s a game that instills teamwork and discipline.”
The sport has given the world one of the most enduring pieces of fashion — the rugby shirt. It’s that side of rugby that Aedelhard is tapping into, the “sport, intellect, sophistication and gentlemanly conduct — all derived from the game,” said Darrell Kopke, Aedelhard’s cofounder and chief executive officer.

“Dressing well is a form of good manners, and we’re simplifying the process with pieces that are easy to combine, accessibly priced, well-made and designed with intention,” added Michael Nguyen, cofounder and creative director.

Aedelhard wants to disrupt the technical apparel market with elevated, classically tailored and functional performance apparel. The company considers its pricing disruptive, with trousers retailing for $ 150, blazers, $ 380 and shirting, $ 120. “We’re bringing tailoring for the masses,” said Kopke.

Bethenny Frankel, Delivering Good Join Forces in Disaster Relief

BETHENNY’S NEW PARTNER: Bethenny Frankel is working with Delivering Good, formerly K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, on its disaster relief efforts. Frankel’s B Strong program for women and their families in crisis has teamed with Delivering Good to provide gift cards, bank cards and critical supplies to people affected by the recent hurricanes.
Since Sept. 29, Frankel, the reality TV personality and author, has helped the charity raise more than $ 500,000 for the gift card program, and donations continue to come in. The cards, which allow people to choose whatever they need, help disaster victims replace some of what they have lost. Delivering Good will continue to work with the impacted areas to provide product donations from the fashion, home and children’s industries. Lisa Gurwitch, chief executive officer of Delivering Good, said 90 new donor companies signed up in September alone, and more than 300 companies have donated $ 22 million worth of products for victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
Frankel has been organizing early relief for underserved disaster areas and personally secured donated planes to Puerto Rico loaded with supplies. The expected value of her total effort is $ 4 million and growing.

Club 33 Is Coming To Disney World And You’ll Want To Join Immediately

Club 33, Disneyland’s famously exclusive members-only hangout, is expanding with four new clubs at Disney World parks, a spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost.

The original Club 33 is hidden at the top of a staircase in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, where it was originally intended as a hideaway for Walt Disney to host elite park guests. Becoming a member nowadays is nearly impossible, even if you’re ready to foot the rumored $ 25,000 membership fee and $ 12,000 in annual dues.

But soon, even more members will be able to join the fun if they choose.

There are plans to put a Club 33 outpost in each of Disney World’s four Orlando theme parks, each with its own unique look, the spokesperson said. There’s no word on membership fees or process yet, though an official announcement with more details will come in the next few weeks.

Based on what we’ve seen of Disneyland’s Club 33, these new clubs should be utterly secretive and swanky.

We are all smiles now that the entrées have arrived. #pocketpeacock #club33 #happybirthdaytome #allthefood

A post shared by Shiri Gutman (@percival_peacock_and_friends) on

There are already Club 33 locations at Shanghai Disney and Tokyo Disneyland, but these new outposts will be the first U.S. locations beyond the California park.

Stateside, Disney parks seem to be going for a more exclusive angle lately: In December, Disney World piloted a set of luxe cabanas in its Magic Kingdom park, and in January, a hidden venue called 21 Royal opened in Disneyland, where guests can host dinner parties for $ 15,000 per night.

We may never be able to afford these experiences, but they certainly add to the allure that makes a Disney visit so magical. Here’s hoping we score an invite soon!

OAMC and Rochas Homme Join France’s Chambre Syndicale

MAN UP: The men’s arm of French fashion’s governing body, the Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Masculine, on Friday announced two new members: OAMC and Rochas.
They were elected full-fledged members of the union by the newly elected management board of the organization, whose full name is Chambre Syndicale du Prêt à Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, at a general assembly on April 12.
Buzzy men’s wear label OAMC was co-founded by Luke Meier, who earlier this month was appointed co-creative director of Jil Sander, alongside his wife Lucie Meier. Rochas, meanwhile, relaunched men’s wear this January under Béatrice Ferrant after a 22-year hiatus.
The new management board also re-elected Sidney Toledano, chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, as president, and Paul Smith’s Isabel Ribeiro as vice president, of the Chambre Syndicale. This will be the final two-year stint in the roles for both executives, since a maximum of two terms is permitted.
The next Paris men’s fashion week is to take place between June 21 and 25.

Sister Wives Stars Join Hundreds of Polygamous Families Protesting Bigamy Law

The success of TLC’s show Sister Wives has given millions of people a view into the real-life workings of a polygamist family. And on Friday afternoon, patriarch Kody Brown and his Sister Wives family brought the cameras with them as they rallied to make plural marriage legal.

Gathering on the steps of the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City, the reality stars joined hundreds of others polygamous people and supporters in protest of a bill that would keep polygamy a felony in Utah.

“I’m a father, a husband, and a lover, NOT a felon,” read a sign held by Brown.

It was the first time since 2012 that the Sister Wives stars made a public appearance in Utah. Brown and his wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn — moved from there to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2011.

Last month, Brown attempted to challenge Utah’s bigamy law with the U.S. Supreme Court, but was declined.

Utah’s current polygamy law currently states that married people cannot live with an extra spouse or claim to have a second “spiritual spouse,” the Associated Press reports.

The new bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Mike Noel of Kanab, would “adjust the definition of bigamy to say someone is guilty if he or she ‘purports’ to marry two or more people and cohabits with them,” The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The proposed legislation would also subject those convicted under it to harsher penalties if they’re convicted of additional crimes, such as domestic or sexual abuse, the AP reports. Those who leave polygamous relationships because they feared harm, coercion, are underage, or are trying to protect a minor in the plural family would be shielded from prosecution.

RELATED VIDEO: Sister Wives Mariah Brown Opens Up About Coming Out and Her Family’s Unconditional Love

According to Noel and a handful of former polygamists women who support his bill, closed polygamous communities can have widespread problems – including sexual abuse, child abuse, welfare fraud and forced labor. They stated their cause on Friday, before the rally began outside the Capitol, the AP reports. (The Browns do not live in a closed polygamist community.)

Noel’s bill was approved by a House committee this week. It is not waiting to be voted on by the full House of Representatives, the AP reports.

There are roughly 30,000 polygamists living in Utah according to Noah’s bill. It’s practice is an early teaching of the Mormon church, who preached polygamy brings exaltation in heaven. The current Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints forbids the practice, abandoning it in 1890.

Brown told The Salt Late Tribune on Friday that keeping polygamy a crime makes polygamous families afraid to call ambulances or social services that can help them. “Stop prosecuting consenting adults,” he said.

“I want my right to live my life as a consenting adult,” added Meri Brown.

Kody is legally married to only one of his wives — Robyn. He was married to Meri, his first wife, until 2015, when the pair quietly divorced and Kody remarried. Kody and his wives remain “spiritually married.”

Kim Kardashian And Chrissy Teigen Want You To Join Their Book Club

If you like to read books recommended by celebrities, boy, do we have some good news for you.

Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen are starting their own club with celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin. The three will, from the sound of it, pass the honor of choosing a title between them, although how often they’ll do this is unclear.

In any case, Kardashian is up first. She’s chosen Embraced by the Light by Betty Eadie, a 1992 book that hit The New York Times best-seller list for several weeks in the early ‘90s. It chronicles Eadie’s experience of her Nov. 19, 1973, hysterectomy, when the 31-year-old grief counselor died and met Jesus in heaven before doctors brought her back to life.

The book ― the author’s first of several on near-death experiences ― offers “astonishing proof of life after physical death,” according to publisher Penguin Random House. The New York Times noted in a 1993 piece that although the topic “initially seemed a bit far out to many members of Manhattan’s decidedly cynical publishing world,” it became a rousing success through word of mouth, and Eadie’s personal appearances in some places drew “crowds so large that the traffic clogged the highways for miles around.”

Kardashian broke the news over Twitter, between tweets sharing crowdfunding pages for critically injured or deceased children.

And yes, everyone is invited, the reality star added

Teigen stepped in to clarify that all you have to do to take part is read the book. 

Whether the trio will debut a website for the club or offer questions for readers to discuss among themselves (perhaps over Twitter?) is yet to be announced.

Embraced by the Light is available through Penguin Random House and Amazon.

Sometimes the friendly skies get a little extra friendly. Just ask these members of the mile-high club.

Hope Permeates Sundance As Celebrities Join Thousands For Women’s March

“Hello, all you pussies,” Mario Bello exclaimed as she took the microphone at the Sundance Film Festival’s women’s march on Saturday. An already spirited crowd swelled at her invocation.

Miles from Washington, where a gargantuan protest was unfolding, snow covered the ground but fire filled the air. Thousands of festivalgoers and Park City locals took a break from seeing movies to storm Sundance’s downtown hub in solidarity with nationwide demonstrations. Traffic delays stalled movement throughout the Utah town, but bright spirits prevailed.

Protesters ambling down Main Street waved signs, banged drums and chanted the refrain of Bob Marley’s “Get Up, Stand Up” in the name of equality. At one point, a woman behind me proclaimed to her companion, “I feel so united with everyone. I feel like smiling. I feel so happy.”

Sundance is, of course, a watering hole for movie stars, and Hollywood made a grand showing at the march. Chelsea Hander led the rally, which was independent of the festival’s organizers, and was joined by the likes of Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Laura Dern, Jessica Williams, Connie Britton, Benjamin Bratt, Kevin Bacon, John Legend, Aisha Tyler, Jennifer Beals and Joshua Jackson.

“This isn’t 1917 ― this is 2017,” Handler said in her speech. “We shouldn’t have to fight for progress we’ve already made, but we’re ready to. It’s our duty to take care of the next generation and to ensure that our children have the same access to the essential services that we all did.” 

Meryl Streep was there in spirit: Festival director John Cooper was among many sporting “I’M WITH MERYL” stickers, and the crowd went wild when Bello said Streep’s political Golden Globe speech helped her out of her post-election stupor.

But for such a star-studded gathering, celebrities were hardly the morning’s highlight. There was a widespread sense of community as protesters huddled together, the Park City mountains providing a picturesque backdrop. Volunteers handed out bagels and miniature American flags. Strangers offered one another help through the slush and snow. Even a few dogs attended the event, including one wearing a sign that read “STRONGER TOGETHER.” 

The most surprising element? Humor. As speakers urged protesters to fight for human rights, the crowd was moved to laughter again and again. It was a two-hour church service for the worried, with hopeful benedictions all around. 

“My ancestors were slaves,” Williams said while addressing the congregation. “Williams is my last name, but it is not my real name ― it is my slave name. I am my ancestors’ dream. They fought for me to be able to stand up here in the cold-ass snow in front of a bunch of white people wearing UGGs.”

As I left the march to catch a movie, stragglers holding signs wandered through the streets nearby. People joked and carried on, seemingly encouraged that the conviviality they felt would result in continued resistance. As the day continued, the good mood seemed to cover Park City and provide a welcome, if temporary, reprieve from the festival’s dour aura on the eve of President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Shepard Fairey and Debbie Harry Join Forces for Obey

Two of pop culture’s intrepid forces — Shepard Fairey and Blondie’s Debbie Harry are polishing up a collaboration for the artist’s Obey clothing label next fall.
Forty years to the day that Blondie made its debut at CBGB’s in the East Village, the draw for her indelible style remains intact. Fairey has described Blondie as one of his all-time favorite bands since he discovered them as a kid on pop radio. That interest only intensified as he got into punk and learned more about Blondie’s evolution from the CBGB’s scene with bands like The Ramones, and Talking Heads. Along with always appreciating Blondie’s “stylistic diversity, tackling genres such as rock, girl group, soul, disco, hip-hop and reggae, Fairey has described Harry as “an amazing vocalist, lyricist, style icon, beauty and embodiment of NYC cool.”
“Really excited” about what’s in store for the upcoming Harry-infused special-edition women’s line, Fairey said late last week, “I’ve been a Blondie fan my whole life and have collaborated with them in the past, which has been a dream come true. But working with Debbie on this project has been totally inspiring,” Fairey said. “She’s been very involved and hands-on for the whole process, just another display of her

Conan & Billy Eichner Join Grindr And Leave Nothing To The Imagination

Sorry, Tinder. You’ve been swiped left.

After Conan O’Brien’s crazy adventures with Dave Franco on Tinder, he decided to try out another popular dating app for one of his hilarious remote segments. This time around, the talk show host invited comedian Billy Eichner to help him navigate the world of Grindr: an app geared towards gay, bisexual and bi-curious men.

If anything, O’Brien took his Tinder experience and cranked it to 11. The talk show host has conversations that leave nothing to the imagination (you’ll never look at a birch tree the same way again), brings a bowl of condoms that makes it look like he’s passing them out as Halloween candy and rides around in a creepy van with another glorious paint job. And incredibly, he’s actually pretty successful.

“Conan” airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m. ET on TBS.

Demi Lovato Wants You To Join Her For #NoMakeupMonday

Demi Lovato is starting her week fresh-faced — and she wants you to do the same.

The singer posted a makeup-free selfie and declared herself ready to start a social media movement, #NoMakeupMonday.

“Forgot to post this a while back… Let’s start a new Twitter/Instagram trend: #NoMakeupMonday… Why? Cause we deserve to show the world our beauty and our confidence!!!,” the 22-year-old wrote:

It’s no surprise that the body-image champion is encouraging her followers to go without makeup. Lovato, who has her own skincare line called Devonne by Demi, appeared in minimal makeup for her spread in Allure magazine’s January 2015 issue.

“We wanted today to be super natural; show my skin, show my freckles,” the singer said in a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.

Lovato also frequently shares makeup-free selfies on her social media accounts, and she has continuously spoken out about being confident with her own body after seeking treatment for an eating disorder in 2010.

To ring in 2015, she shared an Instagram photo with a message of self-acceptance in the photo caption:

The Lovatics have already caught onto Lovato’s #NoMakeUpMonday trend.

How Losing His Brother in Vietnam Inspired One Man to Join the Civil Rights Movement | #Selma50

For Herb Metoyer, the period from 1963 to 1965 is still an open wound. In 1963, during his first tour as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, he lost several aircrafts and quite a few crew members, which he refers to as his first experience with death. Then, in November, he and the rest of the country learned of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s assassination. Finally, when he returned to the United States in early 1964, he was told that his brother, a fellow helicopter pilot, died when his aircraft crashed in the South China Sea.

Join Me in Not Protesting the Westboro Baptist Church

I suspect that the more chaotic protests in Ferguson were being fueled by the media. Peaceful, daytime marches aren’t a big TV audience draw. But wild, nightly clashes between residents and a militarized police force? That’s ratings gold. Heck, who knew that Jesse Tyler Ferguson even had a town? Nevertheless, he’s fantastic on Modern Family.

There’s a reason why most famous protest marches took place during the day. Because that’s when you can see. You can’t read placards when it’s dark out. And people are tired at night. They want to relax on the couch and eat overly-buttered popcorn and watch Dating Naked on VH1. Or maybe that’s just me.

But the TV cameras were out at night, inducing people to leave their houses, which invited more TV cameras, which brought out more people, and so on. Television cameras and people out in the streets are a symbiotic relationship, like Donald Trump and women who only love him for his money.

I was watching an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians a few weeks ago. I’m running behind on my Kardashian-watching schedule. I still have three or four episodes on my DVR. It’s not easy to keep up with the Kardashians. Well, I mean it’s pretty easy to keep up with some of the Kardashians, like brother Rob and Bruce Jenner. They don’t do anything. But the Kardashian sisters? They have so much going on. I would like to see a reality show about what the Kardashians are like when the cameras are off. (That joke might take a minute.)

Anyway, on the episode I was watching, Khloe Kardashian was strategizing with the State Department on ways to democratize the Syrian government without destabilizing the region even further. Khloe designed a plan that would maintain an American military presence, but without sending American troops into… no, I’m just kidding. Khloe was pissed off at Kris, her manager and mother, because Kris was ignoring Khloe’s career and spending too much time working on Kourtney’s book deal. Khloe said that even though Kourtney deserved a book deal, Kris should’ve been spending more time on Khloe’s new line of peppermint-scented halter tops or whatever.

But I was more interested in the part where Khloe said that her sister Kourtney “deserved” a book deal. Deserved!? Why does Kourtney deserve a book deal? Does Kourtney write? Does Kourtney have something to say? Has Kourtney shown some sort of literary ability that would warrant a book deal? You know who deserves a book deal? Steven King. J.K. Rowling. John Irving. Heck, I deserve a book deal. You know what Kourtney deserves? Scott Disick.

But I don’t blame Khloe for feeling the way she does. She’s in the media spotlight. Cameras change your perception. We feel important when people are watching us. Without cameras, Khloe doesn’t think Kourtney or Kim or Kylie or Kweckie or any of her other sisters deserves a book deal. We feel empowered when people are paying attention to us. Without cameras, the late night streets of Ferguson would’ve been much emptier.

This brings me to the Westboro Baptist Church, those thirty or forty brainwashed idiots from Kansas who “protest” at funerals with the colorful, hateful signs because something about God wanting us all to burn in hell because George Takei married his boyfriend. The Westboro Baptist Church’s entire purpose is to remind America that God hates us all. But one time I had to spend an entire Saturday afternoon watching my 8-year-old nephew’s soccer tournament, so I already knew that.

It’s not a real church, you know. The Westbozos are not affiliated with any Baptist denomination. It’s an extended family who gets together in the Topeka suburbs every once in a while to discuss, presumably, how to garner more attention. Heck, if trying to keep the spotlight on yourself constitutes a “religion,” then I should apply for tax-exempt status. The nation’s most popular faith is now Instagramism. The prophets are a table of five college kids out for a night of drinking, fun, and selfies.

The Westboro Baptist Church is a novelty act. Its 15 minutes ended around the same time as that “Leave Britney Alone!” YouTube weirdo. And yet it is still in the news. Or, to be more specific, society’s united contempt for these people is still in the news. One comedian is getting a lot of buzz by offering to pay for each Westboro Baptist Church member’s plane ticket to Iraq. Media personality Russell Brand jokingly tried to hug some of the WBC members on his talk show. People were outraged that the Westboro Baptist Church threatened to picket the funeral of Robin Williams, and before that the young victims of the Sandy Hook massacre, and before that Apple founder Steve Jobs. I have no idea if these morons actually did appear at any of these funerals; I only heard about the collective outrage over the possibility.

I read more about protests against the Westboro Baptist Church — some angry, some mocking, some compassionate- than anything this small and insignificant and ineffective “church” has done in recent years. These losers should’ve been figuratively buried long ago. And yet they’re still around, being given CPR by television cameras and our self-congratulatory need to keep them alive as the butt of the joke. But like every gag in the entire series run of Saved By the Bell, the joke isn’t funny.

There is no controversy regarding the Westboro Baptist Church. Controversy implies disagreement. But everyone agrees. These people are clowns. And nobody likes clowns, especially the ones with the “sad face” make-up.

Yes, the Westboro Baptist Church is a family of scumbags whose sole purpose is to offend. But why is anyone still offended? Why does anyone still care? The Westboro Baptist Church is, thank God, a fart in the wind. Stop trying to “defeat” them with the attention they crave. I live next to one of my town’s main roads. The noise from the passing cars is annoying. But I got used to it. And after a short while, I stopped noticing. It’s like the noise just sort of went away. The same thing happens when I listen to jazz on NPR.

Why is our disgust of the Westboro Baptist Church even still a “thing?” We should ignore these people. No more cameras. No more anger. I promise you — pretty soon, you’ll stop noticing that they’re even still there. And soon after that… they’ll just go away, faster than you can say, “Khloe’s new romance with Moroccan rapper French Montana seems legit.”

The media has no obligation, nor any justification, to cover a few zealots standing across the street from a funeral holding up stupid signs. This is not “news.” This is just a cynical attempt by reporters and pundits and social watchdogs to create conflict. Geez. There is enough real conflict in the country right now, not just in Ferguson but in every town where systematic inequality and an unfair distribution of power begets violence and outrage. We don’t need to start making stuff up. The Westboro Baptist Church picketers have about as much real social impact — and they’re about as newsworthy — as a squirrel climbing a tree.

Now if that same squirrel was waterskiing…
