Can ‘Game of Thrones’ Beer Dull the Pain of Season 7 Delay? (Video)

26 minutes ago

Normally by this point in May, we’d be almost halfway through the latest season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Sadly, because winter has finally arrived in Westeros, production on the show was delayed in 2016 to allow for filming during actual snowy weather. Which means, of course, that “Game of Thrones” Season 7 won’t air until mid-July. Like many of you, we’re pretty sad about having to wait longer than usual for our Seven Kingdoms fix and desperate to fill the void with something, anything. Fortunately, “anything” turned out to be “Bend the Knee Golden Ale,” the latest beer from. »

How Trump’s Attacks on the Media Turned Into Literal Attacks on the Media

1 hour ago

Katy Tur felt the crowd turn. As Donald Trump scolded the NBC reporter from the stage, calling her “little Katy” because he didn’t like her coverage, the Trump supporters around her began to feel “like a large animal, angry and unchained.” The Secret Service felt the tension too: Agents took the unusual step of escorting her to her car. The December 2015 speech in Mount Pleasant, N.Y. was just a preview of things to come. Since Trump’s election, the attacks on reporters have gotten physical.

2 hours ago

When “Steven Universe” started on Cartoon Network four years ago, its titular character was a silly, carefree boy (voiced by Zach Callison) singing about the glory of Cookie Cats and his longing to see his alien friends, the Crystal Gems, turn into a Giant Woman.

When auditioning last year to play wunderkind hedge-funder Taylor for the second season of Showtime’s “Billions,” Asia Kate Dillon knew that the character was non-binary.

The biggest challenges of the role, Dillon said, had nothing to do with gender: “I spent more. »
