-the arrowverse introduced the multiverse in the flash season 2
-allows for fun ways to bring back dead characters (floyd lawton, ronnie raymond, laurel lance)
-new ways to see current characters (54 different harrison wells)
-don't even know if the dceu will introduce the multiverse anytime soon
-known/explored earths: 1, 2, 3, & 38 so far
10. Time Travel
-might never be a part of dceu like it is in dctv
-barry fucking things up & trying to fix them
-lead to spin-off legends of tomorrow
8. Felicity & Cisco
-they both bring humor and light to the sometimes dark series
-dceu's attempts at humor suck
7. Smaller Characters Get to Appear
-suicide squad only film so far that attempted to bring in smaller characters
-dceu's focus is on the big players
-examples: mr. terrific, ragman, livewire, silver banshee, miss martian,
damien darhk, trickster, rip hunter, vixen & constantine
1. DCTV Has Fun
-suicide squad was the attempt to inject humor into the dceu but flopped
-coloring of films themselves are too dark
-dctv's arrow (and gotham) are darker series but flash and supergirl lighten things up
-shows don't take themselves as seriously
Which do you enjoy more, ONTD? DCTV or the DCEU?

It centers around the notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and Steve Murphy (Holbrook), a DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill him.

What tv-death made you upset??
Steve Martin deleted a twitter tribute to Carrie Fisher after being criticized for what some felt was its sexist nature. On Tuesday, Martin (who had a brief fling with Fisher in the 70s) sent out this tweet:
He deleted the tweet after some of his followers objected to what they felt was a sexist focus on Fisher's looks ("I think she apprised to be something higher than just being pretty. How do you want to be remembered?" one wrote).
New York Magazine published an article on their website criticizing Martin and other men whose tributes to Fisher appeared to focus on how attractive they found her. In an article titled "Steve Martin, This Isn't How You Pay Tribute to Carrie Fisher" (note: the title of the article has since been changed), author Claire Landsbaum wrote:
That characterization of Leia — as a wet dream for prepubescent men — is something Fisher spoke out against her whole career...So remember Fisher for her immense talent, her outspoken feminism, and her moving commentary on mental health — not for the way she looked onscreen.
Some people have come to Martin's defense, including Walking Dead actor Michael Cudlitz and Piers Morgan:
. @SteveMartinToGo 4 the record. Anyone with a brain understood the intention of your tweet. ✌️️— Michael Cudlitz (@Cudlitz) December 29, 2016
We all remember some of the other notoriously awful Idol-hopefuls (William Hung, Mary Roach, and Larry Platt aka, the "Pants on the Ground" man.
But what about those who were just as awful, who did not gain as much publicity? Here is a lookback at more terrible American Idol auditions.
(Note: even if some of these were obvious set-ups by producers, I will still include them, for the sake of laughs).
1. Tashawn Moore
american idol (Tashawn moore)by staco2
Tashawn Moore came into the season 5 auditions in Minneapolis, singing none other than Minneapolis's own Prince. She butchered up the lyrics to "Kiss" quite brutally, and kept forgetting the lyrics and re-singing parts she already sang. (Sorry the video is in French, I couldn't find an English one. The singing is in English though, that's all that matters?)
2. Paul Maturano
Paul Maturano creeped the judges out with his stalking anthem which he wrote himself about Paula Abdul, during season 7. The song contained lyrics such as "I'm not much of a talker, so I guess that I'll just stalk her. And I'll stalk her, if she were a doggy I'd walk her" and more strange forced rhymes.
3. Ty Hemmerling aka Bikini Boy
In response to the previous season's infamous "Bikini Girl", the local Denver radio station sent out Ty Hemmerling to audition in a bikini singing "Achy Breaky Heart". The judges just walked right out of the room.
4. Rhonetta Johnson
Rhonetta came in with her...interesting ensemble, and her belief that she would be able to compete with JLo and Janet on the charts. She sang several songs during her audition, all of which sounded terrible. But the one thing better than her audition, was her attitude that followed. She talked shit about the judges afterwards, especially Paula.
5. Sarah Goldberg
Unlike most contestants, Sarah was actually aware that she could not sing. What she hoped instead was that they would provide her singing lessons, and that they could take an average tone-deaf person and turn them into a great singer. But like others, the best part was her reaction afterwards.
6. James Lewis
James Lewis, a tourguide from Philadelphia, sang in an extremely deep voice, making the words sound almost completely unintelligble.
7. Ian Benardo
Ian previously tried out for "So You Think You Can Dance", in which he was also rejected. This time, was no better. He "sang" Gloria, and similar to the aftermath of his SYTYCD audition, he afterwards badmouths Simon for "not being American".
8. Alberto Hertado
Alberto came in with an original song he wrote, which the judges deemed too depressing. He also made a giant fan, painted with "American Idol's Biggest Fan" on it. (Note: I could not find a better quality video of this.)
9. Julie "Isadora" Furman
Julie/Isadora sang (?) "Lady Marmalade" followed by some strange orgasmic-sounding noises. She also thought Chris Daughtry was Versace.
10. Jarrod Norell
Jarrod sang "Amazing Grace", which Kara Dioguardi said "sounded like a lawnmower". When the judges say no, he continues to sing, and refuses to leave, leading security to escort him out.
What are your favorite Idol moments?
14. GETTING RID OF SPEEDY’S DRUG ADDICTION
-Roy's drug addiction was an iconic moment for the character and for comics in general with them dealing with real life issues.
-Since Thea is technically Speedy now, they could give the storyline to her given her past and it's a storyline Willa could handle.
12. SIDELINING CHINA WHITE
-China White has been a major villain in the Green Arrow comics, she was part of the reason Oliver turned into Green Arrow
-In Arrow, China got sidelined and became a henchwoman who appears here and there when she should be a major crime boss in the Arrowverse.
9. THE DEATH OF LAUREL LANCE
-Black Canary is one of the most central and important characters to Green Arrow, she is the Lois to his Superman.
-Arrow gave her a lackluster death just when they found their groove with writing the character somewhat properly
6. MAKING OLIVER TOO SERIOUS
-One thing that sets Oliver apart from Batman is his humor. He doesn't take life to seriously and knows how to have a good time.
-Oliver Queen in Arrow is the poor mans Batman.
4. TURNING AMANDA WALLER INTO A PUSHOVER
-Amanda 'The Wall' Waller is one of DCs most revered female characters. She doesn't have superpowers but her ruthlessness and political intrigue made plenty of villains and heroes afraid of her.
-Amanda Waller in Arrow was a woman of very little words who was never used properly. She was killed by a nobody while being held hostage.
What comic aspects would you like to see Arrow (Flarrowverse in general) incorporate/adapt?
- Tremaine Neverson wouldn't get off the stage when his time was up. The R&B singer became irate and threw microphones and speakers from the stage.
- Songz was taken into custody for "malicious destruction of property and obstructing arrest."
- He's out on bail with a court date set on January 5th, 2017
Kate Winslet wrote the following for Entertainment Weekly on the late Alan Rickman:
"He was always a great big softy. If there was one word I could use to really describe Al, it would be kind. He was so kind.
"At Al’s memorial, Juliet Stevenson told the story of how whenever Al would go out to supper and anyone else would try and pay, he would somehow have phoned ahead or slipped his credit card ahead of the meal so no one even got a look at the check. He'd just say, 'I've got two words for you: 'Harry Potter.'
"And he became known for doing that. What can you say but thank you?"
- Will have a greater emphasis on the life of Prince Philip, particularly on his childhood, and how that impacted him in the future.
- Prince Charles will play a larger role in Season 2, with a focus on his education.
- Timeline seems to be between 1957-1964.
- After season 2, the main cast will be replaced by older stars as they age in the show.
It's a spoof of their 2000 hit All The Small Things MV, except with naked girls and Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect, Workaholics) playing the sexy nurse.
Met December 2012 on the set of OITNB when Lauren wrote an episode centered on Poussey
Lauren had a crush on Samira right after seeing her audition tape, but was married to a man at the time. Samira kept thinking of ways to try to talk with Lauren, and became a confident when Lauren was still finding out who she was.
Lauren started questionning her sexuality as a result of being on set of the show and talking about all the themes related to it. She tried couple's theraphy with her husband for one year.
Went to the first trip together after one year of dating (to Thailand) and it was a disaster.
Lauren wrote the episode Poussey dies. But she's kinda happy Samira is no longer on the show so they aren't stuck in NY.
Lauren was the one who proposed
I consider our visibility to be a great privilege. Very honored to be on the February cover of @outmagazine's Love Issue.

will y'all shame her and cue in the ageism and all that against this free spirit and flawless QUEEN, ontd?
Speaking with CNN and Facebook Live, said she's been hard at work pushing for a sequel to the 2004 comedy Mean Girls.
She said: 'I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2 - it is not in my hands.'
'But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it.'
'I've already written a treatment for it, so I just need a response.'
Today Azealia Banks took to snapchat to document the cleaning of her witchcraft activities. In her brujeria closet, Banks claims to be sandblasting 3 years of chicken blood + feathers that are the left over mess of her religious practices. In the video you can see Azealia sporting a pair of goggles and mask to protect her from harsh environments.
Beware of what lies beyond the cut: SFW images will be embedded, captures of the sacrificial area will be hotlinked for everyone's safety.
***PHOTOS OF THE SACRIFICIAL CLOSET***
Azealia can be heard saying "real witches do real things."

For Thursday, December 29, 2016:
it first started with this tweet
A Bieber fan rightfully called him out and Scooter dm'd that fan and then dm'd them from Justin's account too
His fans say that Justin hasn't used his twitter account in years, that he only use(s)d Instagram and that it's always Scooter on twitter.
Scooter has outed himself a few times when he accidently tweeted from his own account instead of Justin's:
he's vile for this. he thinks he can manipulate that fan to change their opinion about Israel/Palestine by making them think Justin talks to them
he updated his twitter since then and tweeted this:
After lots of feelings and opinions and many unfortunate propaganda sent my way I feel it is important to be clear...so...— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
I stand with humanity...I stand with peace for muslims, christians, Jews, and any other religion. I stand for peace and freedom. But...— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
I don't stand for the corruption the UN showed this past week and they have continued to show year after year....— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
I believe both sides in the Middle East conflict have fault and most of that fault lies with how poorly the UN has handled itself...— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
This past week the UN once again showed corruption and bias and for that I stand with Israel...however...— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
My original tweet was too short...and rightfully so I stand with peace...for Israelis and Palestinians alike....— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
So I'm glad we have started a dialogue and for so many of u that wrote me in anger...I challenge u to go visit and truly see the truth....— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
And until then...I will see my muslim brother and my Christian brother and my Jewish brother as just that..brothers. I will stand with truth— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
And I will stand with peace and stand against corruption. I will stand with any Israeli or Palestinian or American who feels the same way.— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) 29. Dezember 2016
