Bernie gets grumpy during Democratic debate

6 hours 36 min ago

WASHINGTON — Bernie got grumpy and Hillary got detailed in a policy-focused PBS debate that played to her strengths and exposed some of his big weaknesses.

Here's what you missed if you didn't catch Thursday's Democratic debate.

Everyone loves Obama - now

Clinton and Sanders rushed to prove the other one hasn't been so nice to the president, in an effort to bearhug Obama.

'The Life of Pablo': Here's what everyone thinks of Kanye West's latest album

6 hours 48 min ago

The Life of Pablo is only a few hours old, but everyone already has an opinion about Kanye West's latest opus

The rapper debuted his seventh studio album at Madison Square Garden during his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. And — it's really good, though too soon to measure how it stacks up to his past work. West has preemptively declared it one of the greatest albums of all time and the "album of the life."

Now that it's out there, do fans think he's right? Reactions on social media ranged far and wide, but some are actually daring to call it West's best album to date

Sanders and Clinton fight over who loves Obama more

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders played tug-of-war over President Obama's heart at Thursday's Democratic debate, with each arguing the other has been more disrespectful to the president.

Clinton lit into Sanders for his Thursday comments that President Obama hasn't been able to work with Congress well enough, accusing him of Republican-like attacks.

"I don't think he gets the credit he deserves," she said. "The kind of criticism that we've heard from Senator Sanders about our president I expect from Republicans, I do not expect from someone running for the Democratic nomination to succeed President Obama." Read more...

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

Warning: This post contains spoilers!

In case you hadn't gotten the memo: The new episode of Grey's Anatomy was excruciating

Going into the episode — the show's first of 2016 — we knew that Meredith was going to be attacked by a patient. What we didn't know was how much more complicated it was than that.

The episode began with a big accident involving a flipped over big rig that brought several victims to the hospital. One of them was a kind older gentleman who Meredith quickly befriended, trading pleasantries about kids and family. The happy talk stopped when the man started having a violent seizure. Little did we know, this seizure would cause him to experience temporary hyper aggression — a side effect Owen explained later, after they found Meredith severely injured on the floor Read more...

Kylie was here. I was here. You were here. Kanye sure as hell was here. Yeezy Season is a global phenomenon

Kanye West debuted his aggressively hyped album, The Life of Pablo, as well as his collection for Yeezy Season 3 at Madison Square Garden Thursday. As Kanye at his humblest might say, it was one of the greatest album launches of all time

If you need proof that Kanye has successfully created Kanye the Brand as both a fashion and music enterprise, a step inside Madison Square Garden made things crystal clear. At any given moment, you could spot a handful of disciples rocking Yeezus tour merchandise and seemingly everyone in the venue patiently waited to get their own "Ultra Light Beams" tee.

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

After raking in nearly $2 billion, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is easily one of the biggest and most successful movies of all time. It's biggest star? Well that depends on who you ask. Daisy Ridley is a first choice for many people. So is John Boyega. However, if we're being honest here, the only choice is BB-8, the round droid that stole our hearts and the show.

Mad Magazine takes on 'The Force Awakens'

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

Leave it to the usual gang of idiots at Mad Magazine to bring out its first proper Star Wars: the Force Awakens parody in its latest issue Friday — nearly two months after the record-breaking movie first hit cineplexes.

But what Mad loses in timeliness, it makes up for in classic art — in this case from Sergio Aragonés, the multi-award winning Spanish artist who's been with the magazine since 1963

Kanye West's models: A fuller spectrum of 'black beauty'

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

NEW YORK — Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday had all the twists and turns of a perfect stage show. There was the superb music blasting from his upcoming seventh album, The Life of Pablo, the production was outer worldly, and the clothes, including West's infamous Yeezy Boosts, are sure to become bestsellers.

But what was the most intriguing aspect from the New York City show was West's cast of models. Most on two of the stages were of color, and the entire bottom floor (made up of street-casted, non-professional models) were black.

The mysterious hierarchy of Yeezy Season 3: What did it mean?

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

Kanye West's fashion shows traditionally serve as platforms to promote equality on the catwalk. Both Yeezy Seasons 1 and 2 sent models from across of the spectrum of skin tones down the runway. 

Yeezy Season 3, which also served as the debut of West's sixth album, The Life of Pablo, at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, was a slightly different story.

Uber may be about to owe a lot of users money

The ride-sharing service announced a $28.5 million class action settlement proposal Thursday in response to lawsuits by riders alleging its "Safe Ride Fee" constitutes false advertising

The proposal will attempt to settle Philliben v. Uber Technologies, Inc. and Mena v. Uber Technologies, Inc., which seek restitution for Uber's $1 "Safe Ride Fee."

Kanye West's Yeezy show just showed us fashion's future

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

NEW YORK — Kanye West showed us the fashion future tonight.

It was a sight to be seen — one that will certainly go down in history as not only one of the biggest fashion spectacles of all time, but also a concert. Go figure. 

It was rapper and fashion designer Kanye West's Madison Square Garden show on Thursday, which brought together the fashion set, fans and music aficionados alike to celebrate not only his latest collection, Yeezy Season 3, but his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo.

West, a self-proclaimed musical genius, merged fashion and music — the biggest of his passions — seamlessly in a show that reminded us what fashion shows are all about. And perhaps what they should do more of. That's entertainment.  Read more...

Bernie thinks a Bernie presidency is as big a deal as first woman president

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

WASHINGTON — Bernie may have come off as a bit of a bro during Thursday’s debate with Hillary Clinton.

Sanders seemed to pooh-pooh the historic nature of Clinton’s campaign to be the first female U.S. president, arguing if he got to the White House it would be just as unique.

“Well, you know, I think from a historical point of view, somebody with my background, somebody with my views, somebody who has spent his entire life taking on the big money interests — I think a Sanders victory will be of some historical accomplishment as well,” he said when asked about whether he was worried he might be blocking history.

I took a first date to a sewage treatment plant for Valentine’s Day

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

Video: Heather Dockray, Jake Fertig

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved sewage treatment plants

From the moment I first downloaded Sim City to today, I’ve had a deep, abiding passion for wastewater management systems — and wanted to share that part of my life with someone special.

So when I saw that Brooklyn’s very own Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant was having a special Valentine’s Day tour, I hatched a plan. I threw up my most highly-ranked profile picture and put a call out on Tinder, Facebook and OkCupid to find a date.

Grammys host LL Cool J welcomes the Kanye West/Taylor Swift drama

Thursday Feb 11th 2016

LOS ANGELES — When LL Cool J heard about Kanye West possibly reheating his beef with Taylor Swift on Thursday, he let out a laugh that lasted at least 30 seconds.

Then the host of Monday night's Grammy Awards had a suggestion:

"I say we just let it all fall," he told Mashable in a pre-Grammys chat Thursday. "Let's just get everybody in the Grammys room and figure it out [more laughing]."
