WASHINGTON—Apologizing for what they have unleashed by condemning the former Vice President’s past behavior, the U.S. populace issued a call Monday to let Joe Biden rub women’s shoulders again after seeing what he will do instead. “It’s not that the shoulder rub thing isn’t creepy, it is, but we didn’t realize the Pandora’s box that we opened by making him stop,” said Loveland, Colorado resident Virginia Dalton, claiming that while Biden smelling a woman’s hair had always grossed her out, seeing the 77-year-old biting his wife’s finger during a campaign event over the weekend shook her to the core. “It’s fine, just let him do it. Unsolicited shoulder rubs or touching a stranger’s lower back are not good, but at least they’re kind of normal. There is apparently no hope of him just acting okay, so let’s at least give him back the shoulder rubs, because God knows what horrors he will unleash … [Read more...] about Nation Calls For Letting Biden Rub Women’s Shoulders Again After Seeing What He’ll Do Instead
NEW YORK—In an astonishing finding that sheds light on the character of the president, a shocking new video of Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump reportedly shows entirely still pictures leaping to life and moving of their own accord. “It’s alarming, to say the least, to see individual pictures—fully inert ones, mind you—springing into action on your screen in continuous motion as if by witchcraft,” said media analyst Peter Moore of the unsettling imagery, speculating that the photos had either been forced into movement by an unimaginable technology from the distant future or else, quite possibly, enchanted by a kind of sorcery that trapped the two men’s souls inside an endless loop of perpetual animation. “To put it bluntly, it’s as if the figures in this footage have traveled from 1992 into the very present to dance and converse for our amusement. The effect is absolutely breathtaking, if not a bit uncanny. Truly, it must be seen to … [Read more...] about Shocking New Epstein Video Shows Pictures Moving All On Their Own
Punk vets Against Me! have a new album coming out this month. But while Shape Shift With Me won’t be out until September 16, the band has released a new music video for the album today, giving fans another glimpse of its latest stylistic shift. Directed by Say Anything star Ione Skye, “333” is a plum little piece of sexual psychodrama, starring Skye’s old friend, Orange Is The New Black’s Natasha Lyonne, as a ’60s-style housewife trying to keep herself some semblance of sane. Co-starringBates Motel’s Andrew Howard, it’s a stylish backdrop for Laura Jane Grace’s screaming vocals and the band’s driving percussion. Meanwhile, Grace’s memoir, Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout, is out on November 15, and the band is about to head on tour, both for headlining dates, and with Bad Religion, starting today. You can see the tour dates—and the track listing for Shape Shift With … [Read more...] about Natasha Lyonne and
Here’s some news that’s hot like fire: There is an unexpected new release inspired by the “princess of R&B,” Aaliyah, coming this June. MAC announced in August that it would be debuting a 2018 collection inspired by the late icon and has finally revealed the launch dates—June 20 online and June 21 in stores—in response to an eager fan. No word yet on what the line will include, but in life, Aaliyah always had the lock on tomboy-infused glamour, perfecting the “athleisure” look long before we’d even given it a name. Her iconic tied bandannas, midriff-baring tops and low-slung baggy pants were just evolving into a more grown-up glam when the 22-year-old and several members of her team were tragically killed in a 2001 plane crash while returning from the video shoot for her last hit single, “Rock the Boat.” But in the 17 years since, Aaliyah’s influence has remained strong; to date, she has sold an estimated … [Read more...] about Baby Girl … Aaliyah for MAC Launches June 20!
