It’d probably help to not wear a wedding veil on Instagram. That belongs on a Pintrest board. Marriage is the last thing a single feller looking at your Instagram has on his mind.Read More
Hillary Clinton has “earned” at least $12 million since quitting her job as Secretary of State, Bloomberg reports. Sources of income include her underperforming memoir, along with paid appearances at corporate gatherings (e.g. Goldman Sachs) and six-figure speeches at public universities.
Clinton, who owns at least two homes and hasn’t driven a car in decades, is trying to present herself as a champion of hardworking Americans. Bloomberg notes that while Hillary’s so-called earnings “represent a fraction of the Clinton family’s total income,” they were ample enough to place her “in the top one-hundredth of the 1 percent.” She is the 0.01 percent, and she’s very concerned about income inequality.Read More

For as much guff as SI’s Peter King gets for his ruminations on airport coffee, the NFL season starts when the man files his first training camp dispatch. Hidden amongst the faux optimism for a squad that’ll likely go 5-11 is King’s inaugural Fine 15 list, a full 45 days before people like myself get to learn how wrong we are.Read More
Over the weekend, I watched Snowpiercer again, this time on a huge screen at the Angelika Mosaic as oppose to a rather small screen at a D.C. theater.* It plays so much better on the huge screen than it does on the small screen that I’m actually kind of angry that a.) I saw the film in that dreadfully tiny theater the first time around, and b.) so many people are going to watch this film on VOD rather than at the multiplex.
Anyway, I got to thinking again about just how much better this picture was than The Purge: Anarchy. (I scathingly reviewed that film here.) I have to say, I was somewhat surprised to see people I respect giving the film positive notices. Over at Vulture, Bilge Ebiri wrote that it was “breathtaking to watch a throwaway studio sequel break its corporate chains before your very eyes and become something thrilling and dangerous and alive.” Indiewire’s Eric Kohn’s review is headlined “Why ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ Is this Summer’s Essential Guilty Pleasure.”
This town deserves a better class of allegory. And Joon-ho Bong has already given it to us. (Some spoilers for both The Purge: Anarchy and Snowpiercer after the jump.)Read More

2014 has been a rough year for Victoria’s Secret. Their sexy sports bra fashion line cratered and now one of its premier angels suffered a humiliating defeat on national television. VS’s Miranda Kerr crumbled under the pressure of the flip cup arena.
Jimmy Fallon continues to singlehandedly save NBC by importing his super smoke flip cup game to the Tonight Show; last night he squared off versus Miranda. Miranda probably hasn’t had a sip of beer in her entire life.Read More
Apparently there’s a big debate going on right now in Detroit about people not paying their water bills. Some believe that you should be able to not pay your water bill and continue to receive water. Others believe that you should only be able to receive water if you pay your water bill.
This is a debate.
Anyway, Nolan Finley, a Detroit News columnist, made the very reasonable point that if you don’t pay your bills, you don’t get stuff. Here’s Finley:Read More
