A$AP Rocky, Takashi Murakami Join Crowd at The Broken Arm and Prada Party

PRADA PARTY: A$ AP Rocky and Takashi Murakami were among the crowds from the fashion, music and art world that squished into a packed courtyard in Paris Saturday for a cocktail party hosted by The Broken Arm and Prada to celebrate a recent collaboration.
The concept store is selling limited editions of a Prada shirt from the fall men’s and women’s collection and has an installation on the collaboration at Parisian store through June 25.
“We wanted to take advantage of people being in Paris for Fashion week to have a gathering and catch up with our friends,” noted Romain Joste, one of The Broken Arm’s founding trio that also includes Anais Farge and Guillaume Steinmetz.
It was standing room only, even if benches were scattered about the space — fashioned as giant Prada delivery boxes turned on their sides, from the label’s fashion show.
People hovered in front of bins of beer and mini Champagne bottles politely, before realizing they were free to serve themselves. The idea was to keep things casual, but Parisians are not accustomed to drinking out of bottles.
“It feels like drinking beer!” laughed Elie Top, taking a swig from his mini Champagne bottle between puffs on a cigarette.

How to join the mile high club, according to a flight attendant

ADVERTISEMENT


Working as a flight attendant can be a stressful job, especially when you add in the hundreds of passengers all itching to carve their name into the mile high club membership book. After 22 years in the business, flight attendant Jenn Leigh is about to spill the beans on the not-so-secret society…

Gaining membership

The first commercial flight was back in 1914, and these aircrafts have had restrooms since the beginning of the 1920s. That’s a lot of time for people to come up with new and exciting ways to make their journeys pass by quicker. So what happens when you cram in hundreds of adults into one space – especially when the drinks get flowing? Yup, you guessed it. It’s time to get down and dirty. Joining this club requires an act of – somewhat – harmonious love and you’re in! While you may not get a membership badge and a monthly subscription, you and your partner will always know of your initiation into the club.

Checking out the crew

There are many rules, regulations, and procedures to go through before becoming a flight attendant. Plus, there are all kinds of scenarios that could see them hopping into action. Sometimes it may seem impossible to keep on top of it all. So what about when the restroom is rocking – do they go knocking? According to Jenna, it’s all down to the choice of the crew! If no one is being disturbed and hasn’t noticed, then you may be lucky enough to finish up. If not – especially if the seatbelt signs are on – you could find yourself heading back to your seat.

Subtlety counts

Jenna admits that one of the most obvious ways to get caught signing your membership contract is to be way too discreet. Constantly looking around, or hiding yourself just makes it more evident to the others on the flight that something might be going on. Jenna also reported that the best flight to seal the deal is an overnight journey. Most people will be asleep, so it’s far less likely that you will get spotted by prying eyes. Apparently getting away with it is all about being casual. To everyone else, you need to look as though you’re going about your daily business.

Casual business

According to a recent survey, 15% of people admit they have acted on their primal instincts while in the air. Jenna further states that most of the encounters she has ever dealt with haven’t even been couples – it’s been between two complete strangers! This flight attendant believes that meeting strangers on the plane is no different to meeting someone in any other situation. Once the drinks begin to circulate and people get chatting, they just can’t help but head to the restroom. Plus, the cabin crew are less likely to notice two strangers missing compared to two empty seats next to each other.

Stretch it out

We know how cramped those restrooms can be with just one of us in there, let alone two. While heading to bun town may seem a good idea, it’s best to think about the space you will have to work with. Jenna compares the flight restrooms to a “phone booth with a toilet” – not the most practical place to share the love. Due to the size and space you have at your disposal, Jenna reports that only a yoga master could pull off any intricate moves. It might be time to get your stretch on if you want a successful initiation into the club.

Whether you plan on getting your name on the member’s list or are intrigued to find out how people get away with the act – Jenna Leigh has opened up our eyes to the many situations she gets to deal with on flights. The question is: will you become the newest member of the mile high club?

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 birkenstock.com 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.
The special edition was feted Thursday night with a cocktail reception at the third-floor Birkenstock X KPM pop-up shop at KaDeWe, which featured the Birkenstock sandals, items from

Joanne Lipman Wants Men to Join the ‘Me Too’ Movement

Cindy Ord/Getty

The “#MeToo” and “Time’s Up” movements, spurred by revelations of horrific and possibly criminal misconduct by politicians, business icons, and Hollywood figures—along with festering sexual harassment and porn star-fling allegations against the putative leader of the Free World—have prompted a global discussion concerning the challenges women face both in and out of the workplace.

They have also inspired a collective case of nerves among men, some in high places, who are currently conducting anxious self-inventories of their actions and attitudes and re-assessing the magnitude of past transgressions.

“With all this talk about sexual harassment, there’s a lot of men who are asking questions like, ‘What do I do now?’” Joanne Lipman told The Daily Beast. “And there’s a lot of men who are now looking at their past behavior and saying, ‘Did I? Can somebody come back to bite me? Could this come back to haunt me? Did I do something 10 years ago that now I’m going to get in trouble for?’ There’s a lot of concern out there.”

Macy’s Rolls Out New Rewards, and You Don’t Need a Credit Card to Join


Shoppers who don’t want to open yet another credit card to access store rewards have a new option at Macy’s.

The department store announced this month that the Star Rewards program now includes a bronze level that all shoppers can access, regardless of their method of payment.

Bronze-level members are eligible for Star Money Days, special offers and mysterious birthday surprises. Star Money Days allow customers to earn bonus points on their purchases. Earn 1,000 points and redeem them for $ 10 in Star Money, which can be used without merchandise exclusions for 30 days.

Customers can enroll online, in stores or through the Macy’s app.

Is Bronze Star Rewards Macy’s Replacement for Plenti?

Macy’s announcement comes shortly after the news that rewards program Plenti is ending this summer. Macy’s was one of the initial partners in the program, which allowed shoppers who earned 1,000 points at any Plenti retailer to exchange them for $ 10 at a participating store of their choice. Macy’s dropped out of the Plenti program this spring.

American Express services both Plenti and Macy’s credit cards. The silver, gold and platinum rewards levels are reserved for credit card users, who receive discounts, free shipping and other rewards depending on their spending level.  

Macy’s announced in January that it would close 11 stores. Since 2015, the chain has closed more than 120 locations, CNBC reports.

The company has been adding Macy’s Backstage discount departments to existing stores — and a few standalone locations — since 2015.

British singer-songwriter Labrinth, Aussie powerhouse Sia, and super-producer Diplo, are going under the moniker LSD after forming an unlikely friendship.

A source said of Labrinth: “He’d been spending a lot of time in America.

Through his music contacts he has got to know Sia, who lives in New York, and Diplo, who is based in LA. They’ve been writing together for a long time.

“Forming a side-project doesn’t seem strange to any of them. It’s mates having a good time and doing what they do best.

“Plus, with a combined social media following of 16million fans, they are a record label’s dream.”

The singer is said to have reached out to Sia on social media

SIMON COWELL signed Labrinth in 2010 as his first non-talent show act in six years.

Sia has emerged from the songwriting shadows as a bona fide chart-topper in her own right, while Diplo has created hits for JUSTIN BIEBER, BEYONCE, BRITNEY SPEARS and MADONNA.


In October, Labrinth tweeted Sia a picture of the cover of her Christmas album, with the message: “I wish I could have been a backing singer on this.

“Next one, you know who to call.”

Sia clearly pays close attention to her social media feed.

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.

Stephen Curry, Laila Ali Join NBA and Kaiser Permanente Total Health Forum March 1 in Atlanta

NEW YORK — The National Basketball Association and Kaiser Permanente are teaming up to host the third annual Total Health Forum on Thursday, March 1 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Kaiser Permanente Chairman and CEO Bernard J. Tyson, NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum, WNBA President Lisa Borders, Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will come together to explore concepts of resilience and total health in our communities.

NBA All-Star Stephen Curry will join the forum’s host, ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor Hannah Storm, for a one-on-one conversation about the power of sports and his global community efforts.

This year’s forum will examine ways to improve the total health — body, mind and spirit — and well-being of underserved youth and families, reduce stigma around mental health, and showcase how sports can create stronger and more inclusive communities in the U.S. and across the globe.

“Through our partnership with the NBA, we are able to make a positive difference in a matter that is vitally important to us both — the total health and well-being of America’s communities,” said Tyson.

Kaiser Permanente Chief Community Health Officer Bechara Choucair, MD, will guide a thought-provoking panel discussion, and keynote speaker Laila Ali will share her experiences as a world-class athlete, fitness and nutrition expert and parent working toward total health. Additional participants will include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Ruth Petersen and CEO of MENTOR, David Shapiro.

The non-profit Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest integrated health system, has served as the NBA’s official health care partner since 2015 and is the presenting partner of NBA FIT Week, held in January. Together, the NBA and Kaiser Permanente have hosted FIT clinics engaging thousands of youth in cities throughout the U.S. Kaiser Permanente also provides the NBA with research-oriented strategic consulting, health-related content, and the development of year-round health and wellness programs.

For more information on NBA FIT and Kaiser Permanente, visit http://fit.nba.com/.

Pray with us: Will NSYNC join Justin Timberlake during his Superbowl show?

Bye, bye, bye?

Throwback, much?

This article originally appeared on People. For more stories like this, visit people.com.

‘NSYNC fans may have to say “Bye Bye Bye” to dreams of a Super Bowl reunion.

On Feb. 4, Justin Timberlake, 36, will take the stage for the Super Bowl LII Pepsi Halftime show, and former band mate Joey Fatone appeared to shut down rumors of a regrouping. (JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Lance Bass round out the famous fivesome.)

“I’m here [at dinner] right now — if I was doing something, I’d be at rehearsals right now, so obviously there’s your proof: nothing,” Fatone, 40, told TMZ this weekend of the potential ‘NSYNC reunion. “There’s nothing wrong with that! He’s doing his thing!”

Indeed, Timberlake just released two new songs, “Filthy” and “Supplies,” and will drop his new album, Man of the Woods, two days before the NFL championship game.

This will be the third time the former boy bander has performed at the Super Bowl. He and ‘NSYNC joined a star-studded lineup (including Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige and Nelly) in 2001. And in 2004, Timberlake took the stage with Janet Jackson to perform “Rock Your Body,” which ended in the infamous wardrobe malfunction dubbed “nipplegate.”

In the years since the controversy, Timberlake and Jackson, 51, have made amends. But Fatone doesn’t expect Jackson to make an appearance next month, even if the duo’s reunion would fuel headlines.

“He’s not that kind of person,” Fatone said. “He’s not controversial like that. He is in a sense, but not in a sense to do it deliberately.”

The presentation will also include see-now-buy-now elements, with a selection of items at the event immediately available at the brand’s web site and the Covent Garden flagship.

While the other demonstrators were more casually dressed, Bella was dressed to the nines in a glittering sequin gown and sky-high heels.

The model, who is of Palestinian descent, had just been partying five minutes away from the protest at an event staged by luxury watchmaker Tag Heuer.

As she was driven away from the bash, Bella’s limo was held up behind the protesters, who had gathered outside the US Embassy near to Hyde Park.

So instead of hanging around, Bella got out of the car and joined the march for a few minutes before getting back into her car, and heading off into the night.

She appeared to get into the spirit of the protest, and was seen shouting and raising her fist into the air.

The demonstration was against Donald Trump’s controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Meanwhile, Bella’s outing comes as it’s rumoured she is still in love with her ex The Weeknd.

The pair split in November 2016.

“She’s happy with where things are and he is too.

“They are still totally in love.”

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé Join Forces For Remix Of “Perfect” [LISTEN]

Ed Sheeran‘s big 2017 was somewhat overshadowed by him getting snubbed by the Grammy Awards, but that hasn’t slowed the soaring success of his latest album, Divide. The English singer and songwriter teamed up with Beyoncé for a remix of his “Perfect” single, with the Houston superstar taking over the second verse while the original opening lines remain intact.

The track is the fourth single from Divide, which is stylized using the math function symbol. The album’s global appeal has essentially made it possible that every single released from the record was positioned to blow up and that has been true for the single even before Queen Bey added her vocals to the remix.

The remix for Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” featuring Beyoncé can be heard below.c

Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington Join Twitter Boycott Over McGowan Suspension

Twitter’s temporary suspension of Rose McGowan’s account amid her emotional reaction to Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault claims has sparked a movement.

Gabrielle Union and Kerry Washington are just some of the celebs supporting today’s day-long #WomenBoycottTwitter protest in support of women whose voices have been silenced.

“Starts now,” Scandal‘s Kerry Washington tweeted before going off the Twitter grid on Friday morning. Elizabeth Banks, too, noted she’s “taking a mental health break from Twitter,” while Gabrielle Union declared, “Let’s go.”

Others urged fans to follow them on Instagram in lieu of Twitter. “I stand with my sisters,” Gina Rodriguez wrote. “I won’t be live tweeting the premiere of Jane the Virgin tomorrow. Instead, come on over to @instagram I’ll do BTS!”

Twitter claimed the situation with McGowan was not due to her comments regarding Harvey Weinstein, but rather that “one of her Tweets included a private phone number,” which violates the platform’s Terms of Service. The actress returned to Twitter after her 12-hour suspension with claims that Harvey Weinstein raped her, clarifying previous statements that she had been sexually assaulted by an unnamed studio head.

Eva Longoria, Robert De Niro and Many More Celebs Join Campaign for Mexico Earthquake Relief

Among the devastating natural disasters that have struck several countries around the world in the previous weeks, the powerful 7.1 earthquake that hit Mexico was one of the most destructive in the country’s history. The earthquake toppled hundreds of buildings, destroyed streets and killed more than 200 people including 21 schoolchildren.

As the Mexican cities affected by the earthquake rebuild from the devastation, director Alfonso Cuarón—the man behind Gravity and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban—hasn’t forgotten about his home country. With the help of his celebrity friends like Eva Longoria, Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Watts and Robert De Niro among others, Cuarón has announced an initiative titled “Mexico Rises” to help raise funds for Mexico.

“The devastating earthquakes in Mexico have elicited a deeply moving response from the Mexican people. In the history of our community, we have never been so informed, united and connected as we are right now,” said the director. “Citizens have taken this matter into their own hands and have selflessly and tirelessly worked together to come to the aid of their neighbors. Following their inspiring lead, I’m compelled to take action and join them to help begin the reconstruction of our beautiful country as it starts to recover from these tragic events.”

The video for the multi-platform campaign starts with a few clips of when the earthquake struck then goes into celebrities sending moving messages in support of Mexico then asking viewers to visit the donation page.

For those interested in learning more or contributing, visit GlobalGiving.org/MexicoRises. All donations will exclusively support earthquake recovery efforts. And be sure to support the initiative with the hashtag #MexicoRises.

Mark Hamill, J.J. Abrams Join Hilarious ‘Nightcap’ Season Finale

If you haven’t been watching Nightcap, Wednesday’s Season 2 finale — featuring Mark Hamill and J.J. Abrams — is definitely worth checking out.

The Star Wars icons will play themselves on the Pop TV comedy, which centers around a talent booker named Staci (Ali Wentworth), who works on a fictional late night show called Nightcap with Jimmy. On Wednesday’s finale, the show finds itself in danger, and Staci calls upon Hamill and Abrams.

FANDOM caught up with Wentworth to discuss the finale and how fun it was to shoot with Luke Skywalker and the director of Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

FANDOM: Tell us how you were able to get Mark and J.J. on the show.

Wentworth: J.J. and I have known each other for 25 years; he’s a very close friend of mine. I’ve always wanted to work with J.J. on camera because we have such an innate rapport as friends and I asked him to it. Then I reached out to Mark Hamill and said, “We’d love you to come on to do a funny cameo.” And he said “absolutely.” We all had a ball!

FANDOM: How did the crew react to having two icons on the set?

WENTWORTH: My whole crew geeked out. We’ve had Sarah Jessica Parker and Mariska Hargitay and they were a professional crew. But with Mark and J.J. they could barely do their job. They were dropping cable, spilling their coffee, etc. They lost it.


Mark Hamill replicates his famous hood reveal on Nightcap

FANDOM: What can you tell us about the season finale?

Wentworth: When you come on Nightcap, you get to come on the show and play a funny version of yourself. With this season finale, J.J. and I were giggling a lot. And Mark does that great ode to Star Wars (see video above) and was “yeah, let’s do it.”

FANDOM: Josh Gad famously tormented Hamill’s costar Daisy Ridley to spill details on Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Was there anybody on the cast that tried to grill Mark about the sequel?

Wentworth: “Oh my God … constantly! I would see one of the key grips be like, ‘Hey man, I have a question for you.’ I must’ve overheard Mark reply ten times, ‘Oh, I can’t talk about that’ or ‘I can’t tell you.’ I almost ran around with a broom hitting the crew saying ‘Stop!’”

I think it’s very empowering for Mark to have this information that people want. his wife was there and his daughter was there. Considering he is Luke Skywalker, he is very down to earth, taking cell phone pics, etc.

FANDOM: Are you and your husband [Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos] big Star Wars fans?

Wentworth: “I am a BIG Star Wars fan as is my husband. He works at ABC Disney and Star Wars is a big part of the the ABC family. I also think that J.J. has a bromance on George so I said, ‘Come shoot nightcap and then you and George can go out lunch.’”

FANDOM: How did George react to Mark’s cameo?

Wentworth: “George couldn’t believe it. Last night I did Fallon and even Jimmy Fallon was like, ‘How did you do that?’ Obviously, network television would pay millions of dollars for that moment. And when you’re the underdog, when you’re this little show and you’re a nice show, it all came together organically. There wasn’t any ‘I don’t know if we can do that’ or ‘let me call the network.’ It would be almost impossible to do anywhere else due to the red tape.”

FANDOM: Anything else you can share?

Wentworth: “The interesting thing was afterwards J.J. was like, ‘You can cut me out, it’s okay.’ He was very insecure. I replied, ‘Are you kidding me?’ YOU’RE insecure about MY little show?” [laughs]

Check out Mark Hamill and J.J. Abrams on the Season 2 finale of Nightcap Wednesday night at 8pm/7 pm C on Pop TV. And catch another hilarious preview below.

A coconut, a chandelier, and a surfboard are just a few of the items a “vaginal kung fu” artist has lifted using her vagina.

But before we get to the mechanics of how Kim Anami is able to pick up and hold such a variety of objects, take a look at these eye-catching, kegel-clenching photos from her Instagram account:

The Edge. ⠀ Lifting couscous in ceramic glazed bowl. ⠀ ⠀ Dangerous curves ahead. ⠀ ⠀ This was the craziest road I’ve ever seen or been on. ⠀ ⠀ No, scratch that. There was a crazier one in Morocco, with no barriers on the sides, with steep, hundreds-of-meter drops on a pass through the second highest mountain range in Africa. ⠀ ⠀ That one was crazier. ⠀ ⠀ The markets and cities in Morocco are gorgeous works of art. ⠀ ⠀ But our countryside adventures were the most memorable.

Did you read that fun fact in the last caption? Kim writes: “If you didn’t know, the world record for vaginal weight lifting is 31 pounds, held by Tatiana Kozhevnikova, from Russia.”

Can you imagine hoisting a toddler with no hands?!

While Kim’s images might be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, genital weight lifting is far from being something new. Here she explains where the practice comes from, and how jade eggs make it all possible.

Even if becoming a vaginal weight lifting sex-positive Instagram star isn’t on your to-do list, there’s good reason to be inspired by Kim’s passion for vaginal strength. Toning up your pelvic floor with kegel exercises leads to both an increase in sexual pleasure and helps with stress incontinence — also known as peeing your pants, a problem many women find themselves dealing with after giving birth.

Your baby hasn’t arrived quite yet? There’s even some evidence that suggests having good control of your pelvic floor muscles may help during the pushing stage of labor.

Are you game to try a jade egg or vaginal weight lifting?

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.

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…
