Spire.io – Over 50 Million Minutes of Calm Discovered!

Watching high-stress TV shows like Killing Eve calms me down. I decided to find out why

Watching high-stress TV shows like Killing Eve calms me down. I decided to find out why


Watching high-stress TV shows like <em>Killing Eve</em> calms me down. I decided to find out why

April is Stress Awareness Month. On HelloGiggles, we are talking about the routines, habits, and activities that unexpectedly keep us calm and grounded in a society where harmfulhigh levels of stress are dangerously normalized. (Trigger warning: This article discusses trauma from sexual assault.)

I was sitting next to my fiancée and we both had our eyes on the TV screen in front of us. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) had broken into Eve’s (Sandra Oh) home. Eve grabbed a knife; Villanelle, a trained and skilled assassin, obviously noticed and called her out on it. My fiancée and I eyed each other nervously throughout the scene, wondering if either woman would end up injured or dead. Eve ended the scene soaking wet and sweating—and I ended it feeling calmer and more in control than I had in days.

I started binging Killing Eve recently after reading about the show for several months on Autostraddle, my go-to resource on what queer women should be watching right now. It seemed like the perfect escape: We’d just recently finished You, the Lifetime psychological thriller that found new life on Netflix, and there was a high-stress media hole in my heart.

It may sound counterintuitive, but watching highly stressful media—horror movies like Jordan Peele’s Us, intense dramas like How to Get Away With Murder, and everyone’s favorite titular serial killer, Dexter—helps me relieve stress.

I’m not alone in feeling this way. According to research by Margee Kerr, a sociologist, fear researcher, and author of Scream: Chilling Adventures In the Science of Fear, a high-arousal negative stimuli, such as watching a horror movie or a show about murder, can improve mood significantly. Watching horror movies can also cause adrenaline levels to spike, resulting in viewers feeling less anxious or frustrated, according to a 2012 study.

“Viewing high-stress media can feel exhilarating and stress relieving,” says Dr. Allison Forti, an assistant professor at Wake Forest University’s Counseling and Human Services graduate program. “Two defense mechanisms, displacement and projection, can explain this. Rather than confront the co-worker who gossiped about you at work, your frustration and anger release through the serial killer’s violent acts in the movie.”

Consuming high-stress media can serve as a way to channel negative emotions like humiliation, rejection, shame, anger, regret, and spite.

This isn’t a universal experience. Kerr’s research only included people who wanted to voluntarily scare themselves, and Dr. Forti explains that some people experience serious psychological distress when they watch high-stress media: “The sympathetic nervous system activates and the body gears up to fight or flee.” So while someone like me, who loves fictional serial killers and haunted houses, might feel happier after a heart-racing experience, this probably won’t be true for people who hate those things.

It doesn’t entirely surprise me that the more I’ve been binge watching Killing Eve, the less stressed out I am.

My adoration for watching high-stress shows as a coping mechanism actually started after I was raped in college, when I found watching The Vampire Diaries and Dexter oddly cathartic. I felt like I’d lost my own sense of agency and control, and there was something comforting about actively choosing to make my heart pound instead of waiting for it to happen because I’d woken up from another nightmare about the attack.

“When our stress level is escalated, using coping strategies that have a similar intensity can often provide a sense of relief,” explains psychotherapist Beth Scarlett.

“Sometimes we feel anxious or stressed, and we have trouble pinpointing the source of it. An intense show gives our brains a ‘reason’ for being wound up, which actually gives a sense of relief.”


After I was assaulted, I found it hard to wake up in the morning and concentrate in my classes; I’d start thinking about what happened and feel overcome by a surge of panic or anger. I wanted a way to deal with my emotions that wasn’t overwhelming and wouldn’t completely consume me. In addition to going to a therapist weekly, I started binge watching high-stress TV series in my dorm room.

The characters always felt a sense of urgency: Maybe they were on the edge of being caught as a serial killer; maybe they were the one being hunted. It gave me the opportunity to safely process my trauma.

“High-stress media can be used to channel unconscious or conscious thoughts and feelings that are too psychologically risky to address in a healthier way,” explains Dr. Forti. I didn’t feel it was safe to confront my rapist, but I could channel my anger into Season 5 of Dexter, where the titular character helps a rape victim track down her assailants and kill them.

The impact of high-stress media can be even more powerful if it’s a rewatch, like Dexter was for me after I was assaulted. I’d already watched the show in its entirety in high school. “Many people find comfort in watching and re-watching movies where they know the sequence of the story,” explains psychotherapist Dr. Dana Dorfman. “This knowledge provides a sense of a mastery over scary material, and offers an escape and distraction from the unpredictability of real life.”

High-stress TV shows and movies can also serve as a safe way to expose yourself to something that scares you or makes you nervous, Dr. Dorfman explains.

“This gradual exposure desensitizes the person to the stimulus and reconditions the brain to respond differently,” she says, and the viewer retrains their brain to react more calmly to stressful content.

Watching scenes of Lumen surviving rape in Dexter’s fifth season helped me cope with the trauma of my own assault without leaving my twin XL bed. Seeing a main character onscreen dealing with the impacts of post-traumatic stress, like nightmares and panic attacks, helped me realize that I was capable of healing someday too—even without the help of a serial killer to literally murder my rapist.


It’s been seven years since the assault and my daily life is nowhere near as stressful. I’m planning a wedding with my partner and balancing my career and social life with my disability, but I also have a lot of support. I don’t feel the same sense of urgency every morning when I wake up as I did for months after I was assaulted. But I still reach for the remote to turn on shows like Killing Eve and You, which my partner and I finished almost immediately after starting it. Dr. Dorfman calls this perspective building, which is when viewers use high-stress media to help them keep the stress of everyday life in perspective.

My stress now is mainly over minor things like taking my cat to the vet because she has an infection or realizing when the day is almost over that I don’t have a key ingredient for dinner. But stress can still take a toll on me. A couple of weeks ago, my partner came home exhausted after several crises at work and I was drained after planning out an enormous project.

As soon as we sat down to eat dinner, I suggested Killing Eve, which we’d recently started watching. “You know killers always make us feel better,” I said, hovering over the Hulu play button next to Sandra Oh’s distressed expression and incredible hair.

She laughed. At the end of the episode, when we were met with an enthralling cliffhanger, she asked, “One more?”

Immune System Therapy Shows Wider Promise Against Cancer

(Anna Carlstrand via AP)

ATLANTA (AP) — A treatment that helps the immune system fight deadly blood cancers is showing early signs of promise against some solid tumors, giving hope that this approach might be extended to more common cancers in the future.

The treatment, called CAR-T therapy, involves genetically modifying some of a patient’s own cells to help them recognize and attack cancer. Richard Carlstrand of Long Key, Florida, had it more than a year ago for mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer of the lining of the lungs.

“We were going into unknown territories” to try this, he said, but now he shows no sign of cancer and “I couldn’t be happier.”

Results on his and other cases were discussed Sunday at an American Association for Cancer Research conference in Atlanta.

The first CAR-T therapies were approved in 2017 for some leukemias and lymphomas. After being altered in the lab, the modified immune system cells are returned to the patient through an IV, which puts them right where the cancer is — in the blood.

But that approach doesn’t work well if the cells have to travel far through the bloodstream to get to tumors in the lung, breast, colon, or other places.

“Solid tumors are notorious for not letting the immune cells enter,” and not enough may make it in to have an effect, said Dr. Prasad Adusumilli of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

A bigger worry is that the proteins on solid tumor cells that these therapies target also are found on normal cells at lower levels, so the therapy might harm them, too.

Adusumilli helped design a new CAR-T to try to avoid these problems and tested it on 19 patients with mesothelioma and two others with lung and breast cancer, respectively, that had spread to the chest lining. About 150,000 patients in the U.S. each year face this situation.

The modified cells were injected directly into the chest where the tumors were. A genetic safety switch was added so a medicine could be given to destroy the cells if they caused harm.

After the therapy, one patient was able to have surgery and radiation, and is doing well 20 months later with no further treatment. Fifteen others were well enough to start on a drug that boosts the immune system in a different way.

Eleven of the 15 have been studied long enough to report results. Two had signs of cancer disappear for about a year, although one later relapsed. Six saw their tumors shrink. Three saw their cancer worsen.

There were no severe side effects although some patients had temporarily low blood counts and fatigue.

Grants from the federal government and foundations paid for the work and a larger study is planned. Sloan Kettering has licensed the treatment to Atara Biotherapeutics and may get payments from it, as may Adusumilli.

A second study tested a different CAR-T therapy in 10 children and adults with advanced sarcomas — cancers that originate in various soft tissues or bones. Unlike other CAR-Ts that are usually given just once, this one was given multiple times, up to 15 in one patient’s case, if there were signs it was helping.

“From a single blood draw we make a large amount of the CAR-T cells and then we freeze them” and give them through an IV as needed, said Dr. Shoba Navai of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Two of the 10 patients had all signs of cancer disappear, one for 17 months and the other for nearly three years, so far. Three others had their disease stabilized. Five worsened despite treatment.

Side effects were similar to the other study. The therapy seems safe “and we have early signs that this treatment approach may help,” Navai said.

Several foundations and charities paid for the work.

“These studies are showing there may be a path forward in solid tumors” with CAR-T therapies, said Dr. Louis Weiner, director of the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and one of the conference leaders. It may hold promise for some cancers of the stomach, breast, colon, lung and other areas, he said.

Cost is a big issue — current CAR-T therapies are around $ 400,000 but can be made for far less than that in research centers. Doctors say they hope the cost will come down as more come on the market and find their way to wider use.

Oprah Announces New Shows to Air on Apple TV Plus

This past week in Cupertino, California, at Apple’s news release, Oprah Winfrey unveiled the content she plans to roll out onto Apple’s new streaming content service, Apple TV Plus.
Although not many details were disclosed, we do know the talk show maven will be bringing her book club to the screen by interviewing renowned authors who will broadcast on all Apple devices.  Additionally, two documentary projects are in the works. The first, “Toxic Labor,” will document the impact of workplace harassment, in a multipart series.

“The Apple platform has allowed me to do what I do in a whole new way,” said Winfrey, “connecting people and taking it to a whole new level because they have a billion pockets, y’all.”

Other prominent figures at the event included Steven Spielberg, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and J.J. Abrams.

The deal was announced in June of last year; but up until this point, the details have been pretty hush, hush. From a previous announcement, we do know Apple is investing $ 1 billion into original programming and planned on bringing on big-name producers in order to execute the tall order. “Ms. Winfrey will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world,” stated Apple in the release.

This fall, Apple will release its new TV streaming service, Apple TV Plus, in an effort to support the new content. The service will launch through the Apple Store and will include live streams across all Apple devices. In a statement, Apple says Apple TV Plus will be “the new home for the world’s most creative storytellers featuring exclusive original shows, movies, and documentaries.”

Apple is clearly positioning itself to be a Netflix competitor. It will be interesting to see how all of this pans out.

New report shares early details about Apple’s first five original TV shows

We’re exactly one week away from Apple’s “show time” event at the Steve Jobs Theater, and although the company has yet to share any details about the event, the expectation is that the veil will be lifted on Apple’s streaming service. And now, thanks to a report from The New York Times, we know that five original series are already done filming, and will presumably be ready in time for the launch of the service later this year.

According to the report, five series have wrapped, with “around a half dozen more” on the verge of completion. But the people behind those shows reportedly have not been told when they can expect their shows to debut. All they’ve been told is that their shows will stream on the Apple service “later this year, probably fall.” This has, understandably, given some of the talent cause for concern, especially with a big reveal event just days away.

Iceberg, But Make It Fashion. Here Are 20 of Karl Lagerfeld’s Most Spectacular Chanel Fashion Shows

Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld died at the age of 85 on Tuesday in Paris, leaving behind a larger-than-life legacy. Although the German-born Lagerfeld had his own eponymous line and was the creative director of Italian luxury label Fendi for over five decades, the name he’s most associated with is the French luxury house Chanel, where he served as their high-profile creative director since 1983.

During his time at Chanel, “the Kaiser” as he was nicknamed, helped transform the fashion and luxury industry as we know it, turning out collections that were as witty as they were elegant, a shining example of what it means to breathe new life into a legacy brand. To that end, Lagerfeld could draw as much inspiration from the life and times of Coco Chanel as he might from campy, colorful aspects of pop culture, as evidenced by his fantastical themes from Chanel shows that ranged from a full replica of the Eiffel Tower in the Grand Palais to a fully Chanel-branded grocery store, complete with shopping carts that show-goers stormed after the show.

In memory of Lagerfeld’s immense creative legacy, here’s a look back at his 20 most memorable Chanel shows of all time.

Fall/Winter RTW 2008: Chanel Carousel

For Chanel’s Fall/Winter RTW 2008 show, Lagerfeld constructed a full working carousel in the center of the Chanel runway, where models rode on larger-than-life replicas of the house’s famous quilted accessories after they took their turn on the runway. At the end of the show, Lagerfeld exited the rotating carousel to take his final bow.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2009: 31 Rue Cambon

For Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2009 show, Lagerfeld recreated the iconic Chanel flagship store, 31 Rue Cambon, to-scale in the brand’s usual choice of venue, the Grand Palais. Lagerfeld’s wry sense of humor was on full display with the show’s soundtrack, a mix of Madness’ “Our House.”

Chanel Resort 2009: Synchronized Swimmers in Miami

Lagerfeld turned up the heat when he showed Chanel’s 2009 resort collection poolside at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach, Miami. While the collection was beautiful, Karl might have upstaged his own designs by asking the U.S. synchronized swimming team to do a fantastic closing performance.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2010: Bucolic Beauty

Lagerfeld once again held court at the stately Grand Palais, this time to transform it into a bucolic barnyard paradise, resplendent with a Chanel-themed barn, hay bales, rockabilly high fashion, and a surprise Lily Allen performance.

What’s cooler than cool? How about an actual iceberg, the ultimate accessory for a Winter Wonderland set that matched the shaggy, fur-embellished designs that Lagerfeld sent down the runway.

Resort 2010: Chanel Takes the Venice Lido

Lagerfeld paid homage to Chanel’s namesake designer, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel when he staged his 2010 Resort show on a boardwalk runway along the romantic Venice Lido, an enviable destination fashion show.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2013: Linlithgow Palace

Scotland served as both the locale and the muse for Lagerfeld’s Pre-Fall collection, which he showed at the darkly beautiful Linlithgow Palace. The palace, which was the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots, housed models who stomped down a blazing brazier-lit runway in tweeds and tartans, that honored the late monarch as much as they cheekily referenced Coco Chanel’s time spent in Scotland, with her lover, the Duke of Westminster.

CHanel Fall 2013 Couture: Post-Apocalypse Now

Science fiction took center stage at Lagerfeld’s post-apocalyptic theater for the 2013 Chanel couture show. Models walked out from a deconstructed center stage to walk between aisles of viewers who sat in theater seats in the Grand Palais.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014: Everything’s Bigger in Texas

Full-fledged Americana might not seem like a fit for a French fashion house, but under Lagerfeld’s direction, Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show was one wild ride. Beginning with a drive-in movie before the show and ending with a mechanical bull at the after-party hosted at the Chanel saloon, Lagerfeld’s take on Texas was fit for a spaghetti Western, down to an unfortunate Native American headdress that drew wide criticism.

Chanel Fall/Winter RTW 2014: Grocery Shopping with Karl Lagerfeld

Going to the supermarket was no chore at the Fall/Winter 2014 Chanel show, where Karl Lagerfeld painstakingly recreated a fully-stocked grocery store with all Chanel-branded wares, ranging from household cleaning items to pasta. Following the presentation, during which models walked down “aisles” with Chanel shopping carts, attendees stormed the set to loot the grocery store’s Chanel offerings.

Spring/Summer RTW 2015: Vive la Chanel!

Lagerfeld took inspiration from protest culture with his showing for the Spring/Summer 2015 show. Models took to the Parisian “streets” of the Grand Palais for a final walk that manifested in a pseudo-protest (complete with signs that read: “He for She” and “Ladies First” as well as Jamie Bouchert leading chants with a megaphone) that brought to mind women’s liberation.

Fall 2015 Couture: Casino Chanel

Casino Royale? So last season. Welcome to Casino Chanel, where Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, and mother-daughter duo Lily-Rose Depp and Vanessa Paradis all took to the roulette tables as models slinked around them. Lagerfeld’s trademark humor was at play, with the Chanel bride resembling a very chic Elvis Presley impersonator.

Spring/Summer RTW 2016: Fly Chanel Airlines

Attendees were invited to fly high — well, high fashion, that is — with Chanel airlines at the brand’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, where the Grand Palais became an airline terminal for the world’s most stylish jet setters (traveling, of course, with some seriously enviable Chanel luggage).

Fall/Winter RTW 2017: Chanel Conquers the Last Frontier

Leave it to the Kaiser to cap off a space-themed collection with the launch of custom Chanel rocket in the Grand Palais — all set to the dulcet tones of Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” of course.

Resort 2017: Chanel in Havana, Cuba

While Chanel was critiqued for the decision to show luxury fashion (including some questionable references, like military fatigues and Che Guevara-esque berets) in the political climate, the show coincided with doors being opened to the U.S. under the Obama administration after nearly five decades.

Chanel Fall 2017 Couture: Eiffel Tower

Lagerfeld recreated the Eiffel Tower to scale for his Fall 2017 couture show for Chanel, in what might be the most on-the-nose homage to the City of Love.

Chanel Fall/Winter RTW 2018: Into the Woods

Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2018 show was a return to nature — or rather, the idea of nature, as Lagerfeld recreated a lush autumnal forest within the confines of the Grand Palais for models to show off his fall collection.

Chanel Spring/Summer RTW 2019: His Beach Is Better

Life’s a beach — at least, according to Karl Lagerfeld, who brought the beach to Paris Fashion Week by recreating a tropical escape, complete with a sandy runway, real ocean waves and an on-duty lifeguard. Models even walked barefoot and carried their Chanel shoes, natch.

Chanel Spring 2019 Couture: Villa Chanel

For Chanel’s most recent show, they created a villa that would look completely at home in the Italian countryside, a lovely complement to the show’s Rococo influences. Models strutted down the park-inspired runways with David Bowie-esque pompadours, but it was Lagerfeld’s absence at the show due to tiredness that people latched onto most about this couture collection.

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed

Gemma Collins’ mum Joan shows off her incredible collection of dolls on Instagram

AS far as hobbies go, Gemma Collins’ mum Joan sure has her hands full looking after her daughters ‘diva’ demands, but it turns out she has another hidden hobby- collecting vintage dolls!

The GC’s famous mum – who shares the same name as the Dynasty actress- has been showing off her impressive collection of dolls on Instagram lately.

Gemma Collins’ mum Joan likes to collect vintage dolls for her home
Instagram

Taking up a vast amount of space in Joan’s home, the dolls come in all shapes, sizes and styles.

When she’s not playing her part as Gemma’s agony aunt on Towie, Joan spends her time collecting antiques and vintage items to take centre stage in her Essex pad.

The Essex star even has names for some of her prized possessions, with one named Bella, another called Kitty Christmas and a third Tricksey Bell.

In a few images Joan even snaps photos which combine her love of gardening and the dolls, as she places them in her plant decorations.

However, one shot that divided her followers was of singular baby doll’s heads placed in a glass vase.

“That’s a wee bit creepy!” commented one fan.

Another said: “Erm what.”

A third praised Joan’s creativity, saying: “Fabulous idea.”

It’s not all about dolls over on Joan’s Instagram though, as she shared a video of herself and Gemma’s friends wearing masks of her face as they supported her on Dancing On Ice over the weekend.

Last weekend Gemma, 37, returned to the ice following a nasty fall during her performance the previous weekend that left her with painful injuries.

Now, Dan Whiston, the show’s associate creative director, exclusively told The Sun Online that he believes that this marked the beginning of a Dancing On Ice “curse”.

Ice skater Dan said of last week’s excessive injuries: “It was really, really awful. It was almost as if Gemma’s fall from last week’s show… it was a sign of things to come.

“Everyone was getting injured. She’s got black knees, they’re so bruised, she hurt her chest as well.

“People are pushing the boundaries so there are going to be these injuries.”

But it wasn’t just Gemma who has fallen in recent weeks, as her incident has seemed to have caused a domino effect among the other contestants.


Among the injured were Melody Thornton, who fell and hit her chin on the ice last week, Wes Nelson, who badly injured his knee during training, Jane Danson, who fainted during dress rehearsals, Ryan Sidebottom and most recently James Jordan.

But the creative director isn’t worried about the injuries putting the contestants off, adding: “They’re kind an army of robots this year, they’re not going to let anything get them down.

“Only the strongest will survive now as dramatic as that sounds.”

LONDON—The rich and powerful have long delighted in wearing Dior. At the Victoria and Albert Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, you can see the dresses worn by Princess Margaret, ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn, and several more recent designs shown off on the red carpet by actresses including Jennifer Lawrence.

“Christian Dior only designed for his ‘maison’ for ten years (owing to his sudden death in 1957),” said Oriole Cullen, the curator of the V&A’s biggest fashion exhibition since its blockbuster Alexander McQueen show, Savage Beauty, in 2015.

“Still, his name is known all over the world, speaking to the legacy of the six talented designers that have carried the name forward,” she added, referring to the half-dozen artistic directors that have succeeded Dior, including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Raf Simons, Gianfranco Ferre, and, most strikingly, John Galliano, who was fired from Dior in 2011, after being caught on film shouting “I love Hitler,” and anti-Semitic slurs. (He is now creative director of Maison Margiela.)

Nothing against You, but as far as television shows go, it didn’t do great when it aired on Lifetime. The fun, pulpy show about a bookstore manager who becomes dangerously obsessed with a woman came and went in the summer of 2018 with barely a peep from Twitter or the TV cultural hive mind. It’s not surprising that Lifetime cancelled You, but in a savvy move from Netflix, the streaming giant picked up the show and renewed it for a second season.

When You showed up on Netflix, magic happened. It became an almost overnight hit, with a reported 40 million viewers of the first season. Outlets wrote extensively about its bonkers plot and characters, hashtags were born, and what had been an obscure network satire became must-see TV.  Read more…

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Offers Definitive Proof That Steve King Is a ‘Racist’

This Tuesday, as even Republicans in Congress were denouncing their colleague Steve King’s comments about white supremacy, an NBC News memo leaked instructing reporters to “avoid characterizing [King’s] remarks as racist.” The media organization eventually had to backtrack and admit, “It is fair to characterize King’s comments as ‘racist,’ and point out that he has a history of racist comments.”

“This is a big deal,” The Daily Show host Trevor Noah said Tuesday night. “The Republican Party has punished one of its own for making racist comments.” And while King’s declaration that there’s nothing “offensive” about being a white supremacist “feels like a pretty racist thing to say,” Noah noted that the congressman is fighting back, claiming that his words were somehow taken out of context.

“I want to make one thing abundantly clear,” King said on the floor of the House this week. “I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define.”

Giorgio Armani Shows his Love of Colors

TRUE COLORS: The photographic exhibit “Fabula,” unveiled Friday evening at the Armani Silos space, isn’t what one would really expect from Giorgio Armani–and the designer knows it. “I was tickled by the idea that people think I love neutrals so much, that this is a contradiction and that Armani doesn’t love colors, but, actually, here they are,” said Armani during a walkthrough. “I fell in love with these color palettes, and I had fun with the images.”
Indeed, the exhibition of more than 250 images by French photographer Charles Fréger, his largest to date and running until March 24, is joyful and entertaining, capturing a variety of subjects from around the world, ranging from the Finnish ice-skating team and images of young Sumo wrestlers and Sikh soldiers to whimsically and artfully painted Jaipur elephants or quirky yet traditional masked costumes.

Armani, who years ago staged his own “Eccentrico” exhibition said there is a “need for eccentricity today. He lamented how generally “we are now stupidly attracted by small and banal things, but we need to be stimulated.” In fashion, too, it seems “anything now is an invention, but that’s not true. We must be inventive.”

What Shows Like ‘The Simpsons’ Could Learn From ‘Seinfeld’s Finale

Last year marked the 20th anniversary of “The Finale,” the final episode of the seminal TV series Seinfeld. The show finds razor-sharp humor in life’s most boring aspects. Up until “The Finale,” its four protagonists get away with the most anti-social behavior while continuing to live life on their own terms.

Seinfeld was one of the first shows to usher in the age of scoundrelly on TV. This tactic of having shows, especially comedies, feature characters whose reckless behavior goes unpunished is still popular today. As a result, this trope has become stagnant over time — The Simpsons is a prime example. Such shows should take inspiration from Seinfeld’s finale, which forces its characters to pay the price for their unique brand of reckless behavior.

Scoundrelly Is Good?


Diane Chambers (Shelly Long) and Sam Malone (Ted Danson) in Cheers&amp;quot;.

The beginnings of the TV scoundrel trope can be pinpointed to the 1980s and 1990s. Sitcoms transformed dramatically during these two decades. Protagonists no longer had to be “goody-two-shoes.”

Take the sitcom Cheers, for example. Sam Malone’s womanizing ways go unchecked even as Diane Chambers concocts outrageous schemes to get Sam to commit to her. This tactic’s acceptance as a reliable TV trope would only grow. Occasional jerks, like The Big Bang Theory’s Barry Kripke, are harmless compared to the scoundrels we’ve got nowadays.


Charlie from Two and Half Men and Peter Griffin from Family Guy (9)

Two and Half Men‘s Charlie Harper never faces the fallout of wasteful spending habits or constant one-night stands. Similarly, Family Guy’s Peter Griffin increasingly absurd actions, such as getting his son Stewie hooked on steroids, go without punishment.

And, of course, we can’t discuss this trope without bringing up The Simpsons. Patriarch Homer Simpson routinely engages in behavior that ranges from outsourcing his parental responsibilities to framing his wife, Marge, for drunken driving. And he still hasn’t faced the music.


Homer in Fudgetown - The Simpsons

But over time this trope gets tiring — and predictable. After all, we can only watch the same scenarios play out for so long. Perhaps this could be why The Simpsons‘ fanbase is waning.

When the Original Is Better


Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and Kramer (Michael Richards) in jail in a scene from &amp;quot;The Finale&amp;quot;

In Seinfeld’s finale episode, Jerry and company mock a carjacking victim — during the actual carjacking. Their despicable actions land them in handcuffs for violating Massachusetts’ newly minted Good Samaritan Law. The prosecution brings in a plethora of character witnesses, who double as the quartet’s victims from throughout the series. You can guess how this is going to go.

The victims are eager to testify against them, even as they’re still in shock over their anti-social behavior. Watching this trial play out reminds us of how terribly the New York Four have behaved over the course of nine seasons. They’ve gotten away with some truly awful acts.


Jerry and the gang on trial in &amp;quot;The Finale&amp;quot;

Like the time Kramer tried to woo a woman by replacing her wheelchair but opts for a cheap one that proves defective. Or when Elaine mercilessly mocked a coworkers’ germaphobia. Jerry actually mugged an elderly woman for her marble rye. And George basically killed his fiancée, Susan, by unwittingly picking out a cheap set of wedding invitations. Susan licked the toxic envelope glue and found herself six feet under. The rest of the gang’s indifference about her death is bad enough, but George’s reaction is downright callous. Susan’s barely cold before he’s on the phone trying to court another woman.

Ultimately, the gang is found guilty and sentenced to one year in prison. In the judge’s words, it is the opinion of the court that quartet “contemplate the manner in which they have conducted themselves.” This is not the ending fans expected.

There exists an alternate ending in which the jury finds the gang not guilty, much to the shock of everyone else in the courtroom. While we don’t get to see what happens next, we can assume a happy ending. For fans, this ending made the most sense, as the quartet hadn’t faced any lasting punishments up to this point.

While the original ending of “The Finale” may have disappointed fans, it did strengthen the series overall by providing a unique twist that shook things up by forcing the protagonists to atone for their misdeeds. Given that Seinfeld is one of the first shows to usher in the TV scoundrel trope, this is important. It demonstrates that for any trope, or era, of TV to remain relevant, it must evolve, which sometimes means breaking the foundation that built it.

The age of the TV scoundrel is flourishing now more than ever, but it continuously fails to exceed or defy our expectations. For this trope to remain fresh, the shows that have mastered it will need to shake things up, Seinfeld style.

Teaching an Old Trope New Tricks

Seinfeld took a risk by ultimately holding the cast responsible for their reckless behavior, effectively breaking free of the TV scoundrel trope it helped usher in. It’s time for other shows to make this same gamble.

It’s a move that could help The Simpsons win fans back. Even through his negligence, Homer does experience some moments of character growth in earlier seasons. But in recent years, he’s become too static. It’s time Homer’s getting fired from the nuclear plant or separation from Marge last longer than one episode.


Jerry and the gang at the famed Monk's diner

Seinfeld should be remembered for more than its self-created tagline: “The show about nothing.” It should also be remembered for ushering in the age of the TV Scoundrel and successfully breaking a trope of its own creation, redefining an era of television in a creative and unexpected way. This should’ve been the start of something greater, but, instead, we’ve seen shows copy Seinfeld‘s basic formula without ever challenging it. We need shows to carry the creative spark that Seinfeld‘s “The Finale” created and to use it to set fire to the tried and true methods of TV sitcoms. Here’s to hoping that 2019 will see shows like The Simpsons take the risks they built their names on.

Ashanti Shows Off Her Envious Curves In New Pictures But Some Are Only Focusing On Her Toes

Ashanti decided to ring in the new year looking like a golden goddess while in the Turks And Caicos Islands but her fans were captivated by one specific body part.

The R&B diva shared a few pictures where she is showing off her killer and envious curves in a tiny mini gold dress. She completed the look with a high ponytail.

The actress and businesswoman was on the tropical island to secure another bag — she was set to perform at an event.

Her supporters admitted that she looked sexy as ever, but they are also obsessed with her feet.

One fan told Ashanti: “Damn you are always getting to that 💼 Bag….i admire your hustle. A metaphor for how women should come all #2019.”

The Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic, On The Basis of Sex, shows that social progress requires more than one feminist hero

The Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic, On The Basis of Sex, shows that social progress requires more than one feminist hero


The Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic, <em>On The Basis of Sex</em>, shows that social progress requires more than one feminist hero

On The Basis of Sex, a biopic about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, takes place in the 1950s and ’60s—a time period that current conservatives nostalgically look back on as the height of America’s greatness. It was also a time when women without husbands couldn’t get credit cards and when Black women could not occupy the same spaces as their white counterparts. It was also a time when women were heavily discouraged from pursuing careers outside of nursing, teaching, and secretarial work—but Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) blazed a trail for herself.

The film could easily have been a shiny, feel-good tale about a singular feminist hero, but what makes On The Basis of Sex stand out to me is its acknowledgement of the diverse voices who influenced RBG, and its keen awareness of the fact that sex and gender discrimination affects everybody.

The movie shows Ruth’s journey through law school and her years as a professor at Rutgers University. In 1956, she is one of nine women attempting to pursue a law degree at Harvard Law School, where she is subject to continual exclusion and prejudicial behavior. Unable to find a job as a litigator, she becomes a professor at Rutgers University. Eventually her husband, Marty Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), who is also a lawyer, approaches her with a tax case that includes multiple forms of sex and gender discrimination. Charles Moritz (Chris Mulkey), an older man taking care of his invalid mother, is denied a tax benefit that assists caretakers responsible for children or older parents—a benefit that the law claims should only belong to women since men are providers and women are caretakers.

Over the next two years, Ruth and her husband Marty put their heads together to work on the case, hoping to set a precedent that could overturn 178 laws with similar forms of sex and gender discrimination. Through a large cast of supporting and minor characters, the film demonstrates just how many diverse communities and minds it takes to truly achieve equality. It cannot be achieved by one white hero.

For example many of Ruth’s students at Rutgers are women of color who represent a new generation of second wave feminists, assisting Ruth as she researches the case and inspiring her to broaden her ideas about how true equality is really achieved.


While there are several progressive men in the movie who play a role in the case—a major one being Marty, one of the few characters offering Ruth unwavering support—the movie makes a point to emphasize that even progressive men can hold sexist views. This is particularly demonstrated through the character of Mel Wulf (Justin Theroux), the ACLU legal director. Despite the ACLU’s reputation for being strong political lobbyists for civil rights, Mel initially discourages Ruth from taking on the case. He says that if she pursues it and loses, she’ll set the women’s movement back 10 years, Mel continually reminds Ruth of her lack of litigation experience, insisting that she won’t hold up in the Supreme Court.

In a particularly poignant scene, Ruth participates in a mock trial to prepare for the case. She presents her arguments to a table of her peers, including Mel, as well as Gerald Gunther and Pauli Murray (Sharon Washington), pioneers in the Brown v. Board of Education case that desegregated American public schools. Mel and Gunther proceed to tell Ruth that she doesn’t have the litigation skills to handle the opening arguments, and that they’d prefer her husband Marty over her. They also insist that if Ruth presents the case to the Supreme Court as an issue of sex and gender discrimination, then they will lose.

But Pauli Murray, a Black lesbian feminist lawyer, believes that Ruth has the capacity to verbally present the argument in court, and suggests that Ruth and Marty equally split the responsibilities of the opening argument.

We see Pauli’s influence again when Ruth attempts to equate race and gender as unchangeable biological qualities. Pauli corrects her by emphasizing that race and gender are not the same—both are socially constructed, but ancestry and some physical traits play a role in how we perceive race. Gender, however, is how we express ourselves, and that doesn’t always line up with the biological sex we are assigned at birth.

Throughout the film, there are many women who offer similar advice to Ruth, including Dorothy Kenyon (Kathy Bates), a first wave feminist who attempted to overthrow sex and gender discrimination but ultimately failed, and Ruth’s own daughter Jane (Cailee Spaeny) who champions a more radical view of feminism that many progressive millennial women will identify with.

The film not only recalls an important historical event, but also provides a template for how we should pursue the fight for equality now. On the Basis of Sex puts Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s contributions to gender equality front and center, and her contributions were unequivocally groundbreaking. But the film’s director Mimi Leder knew to highlight the fact that social progress does not exist in a vacuum. There are no singular heroes or white saviors. Rather, as the film demonstrates, it takes a diverse cast of voices coming together to truly execute radical social change.

As Ruth Bader Ginsburg says in the movie, American culture doesn’t need a court to give it permission to change, but it does require the united commitment to equality evident in its namesake.

Prediction: As shows continue to leave Netflix, some people will return to DVDs

Netflix DVDs

Next year is going to be pretty interesting for Netflix subscribers, to put it mildly. According to analytics firm Jumpshot, more than half of the streaming giant’s 50 most-popular shows are licensed from companies like NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia that are planning to start streaming services of their own.

That’s potentially bad news for Netflix users who are also fans of its top licensed shows like The Office and Grey’s Anatomy. Because since everyone from new streaming upstarts to industry stalwarts like Disney are planning to launch Netflix rivals in 2019, that means they might be inclined to yank their popular titles from Netflix. And if they don’t, they’ll no doubt charge Netflix a pretty penny to keep them there.

One of Netflix’s most popular shows gets hit with a defamation lawsuit

Making a Murderer

Amidst a seeming avalanche of new content that can at times feel overwhelming, Making a Murderer unquestionably remains one of the most riveting and addicting series to ever air on Netflix. The true-crime documentary debuted in late 2015 and quickly became a runaway hit for the streaming giant.

The series essentially focuses on the trial and ultimate conviction of Steven Avery for the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach. What makes the documentary so compelling is that the murder investigation and Avery’s subsequent trial was riddled with a number of questionable actions from the likes of lawyers, police, and other investigators who helped put Avery behind bars. Now, about three years since the series debuted, one of the policemen who was cast in a particularly unflattering light is suing Netflix and the show’s producers for defamation.

This past weekend, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller made a lot of outrageous arguments about border security and a possible government shutdown on Face the Nation. But all anyone seemed to want to talk about was whatever was happening on top of his head.
