We ask that you remember Q in your prayers and raise a toast to the sky in his name. RIP 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ixsULQil32— WORLDSTARHIPHOP (@WORLDSTAR) January 24, 2017
Reports say he passed away in his sleep.
gotta watch a wshh fight compilation in remembrance😢
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, has been vocal about Donald Trump since his election. He previously went on a tirade after Election Day, saying he was sick to his stomach about the election results and condemning Trump's racist, homophobic and misogynistic language throughout the campaign. This weekend, Pop continued riding his political wave by expressing support for and heaping praise upon those participating in women's marches around the globe. He also condemned the media for defending Trump and questioned Trump's maturity level and capacity to unite the country.
Last night, Pop kept the train rolling and decided to throw some "alternative facts" into his pre-game press conference before the Spurs took on the Brooklyn Nets. When reporting that Kawhi Leonard would be benched for rest (and not an actual injury), Pop said this:
"Kawhi [Leonard] is out with an injury that’s not really an injury, but hopefully it will heal quickly," Popovich said. "That’s a figurative statement. It sounds like some of the things that are going on politically in the world. I apologize. I just gave an alternative fact. I shouldn’t have done that. But it wasn’t a lie, so don’t try to pin that on me. I’m tired of you guys pinning that on me."
Other NBA coaches have joined in on the ribbing of the Trump administration, with Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joking that Steve Spicer would call Kerr "the greatest player in [Orlando] Magic history". Kerr was only with the team for part of the 1992-93 season.
NBA post? political post? alternative facts post?
Toby Schmitz has collaborated with comic artist Matthew Southworth to create an 18-page comic, "Rackham's Razor", that takes place in 1705 and shows us how Anne Bonny and Jack Rackham first met in London.
“It was a combination of a few things, I think. I wanted to show off a bit for the writers’ room, who I greatly admire. I wanted to put something together in screenplay form so I could show that I can have a crack at that kind of thing. Also, I was giving myself something to do. Everyone had to find something to do when we shot that show. Tom Hopper really worked on his fitness. Luke Arnold threw himself into his PlayStation. And I managed to make sure that I kept turning the word processor on and final draft on while I was over there. Anyway, it was an exercise for myself to sort of envision a sequence where Jack and Anne met for the first time.”
"I think that if anything that I’ve tried to draw on for the comic it’s that they both have a healthy disregard of bullies and the establishment. You could do a whole analysis of their relationship purely based on that, I think. They don’t like people in power who wield the power just for the sake of it. I think Anne Is in her element when she’s in action and I think Jack is in his element when he’s thinking an idea through. He finds the concept of concepts very exciting. Obviously together that’s a fun partnership. He’s more florid with his language and she’s more staccato. They complement each other. But they share a ground with a unique cellular bond that’s a little hard to put into words and the fact that they can’t stand The Man almost to a fault."
Click on through to IGN to read Toby's interview and the full comic of how pre-mullet Jack got demoted until he ended up on the redcoat ferry The Carcass and how Anne Bonny got her hat. (I didn't see any McGraw or Hennessy background cameos, what a missed opportunity!)
Starz has put out yet another 30s trailer, giving us another slightly new variation on the Long John Silver speech.
Luke, I love you, but soon your rumbling will drop out of human hearing range and we'll need specialized equipment to make out what you're saying. (Merch opportunity for Starz?) Don't go full Vane.
Over on The Daily Beast is a short but sweet roundtable, "Who run Nassau?", with the main ladies of Black Sails, incl a rare appearance of Madi's actress Zethu Dlomo. Highlight: Clara's "I feel you, babe" when Zethu mentions the badassness of being a woman on a ship of men and calling the shots.
Crew, have you ever tried pineapple? Has it changed your life?
Madam Secretary actor Tim Daly broke both of his legs while skiing in Sundance on Tuesday. He is scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday.
Madam Secretary is not yet done filming for the season, but Daly is expected to continue to appear in every episode. It's unclear whether his injury will be written into the show or if the show will try to hide it.
Daly was seen in Washington D.C. last weekend participating in the Women's March.
UPDATE: Tim sent out this Tweet Wednesday morning:
HUMANS!!! Broke my right ankle and left knee skiing. Simultaneously! How's that for talent? I'm all good.— Tim Daly (@TimmyDaly) January 25, 2017
Throwback to 2008 when Rafa (after beating Fed in that legendary match) and Venus were champions at Wimbledon
Rafael Nadal just beat Milos Raonic to book his first Grand Slam semifinal since 2014. He will meet Grigor Dimitrov in the semis. On the other side of the draw, a resurgent Roger Federer will meet Stanislas Wawrinka. Nadal is 30, Federer is 35, Wawrnika is 31 and the youngest of the group is Dimitrov at 25.
On the women's side, we have Serena Williams (35) facing off against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, a journeywoman player from Croatia who has made her slam semi after last making one 18 years ago. On the opposite side of the draw, Venus Williams (36) will play CoCo Vandaweghe (25). Venus became the oldest woman to reach the AO semis when she beat Anastasia Pavluchenkova.
I'm so excited for Rafa and Venus! Would love to see them go all the way!
ABC has just announced they've renewed The Middle for a ninth season!
Julia Stiles plays a rich socialite who realizes after her husband is murdered that he was involved in dangerous activities. Iwan Rheon plays her stepson
The series is a hot sales ticket, the airing rights already being bought by Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Belgium and Germany (no US, though. OF COURSE). The series is set to air this summer on Sky Atlantic.
- Show is coming back after being off the air since 2008
- It will now just be called "My Super Sweet" to expand their age range to as young as 13
- There was apparently a spinoff called "Exiled" that I don't even remember
Is it too late for Rubi to be on this show?
This morning, the AP quoted a Malawi government spokesperson as saying that Madonna had petitioned the country's High Court for permission to adopt two more children. The story was picked up by dozens of news outlets.
Now Us Weekly has reported that they received the following statement from Madonna:
"I am in Malawi to check on the children's hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi, and then heading home. The rumors of an adoption process are untrue.”
- they have one daughter: Rose (2)
- she previously was married to Ryan Reynolds (2008-2011)

The usual weekly disclaimers: CC sold the rights, isn't involved, despised by fandom etc etc.
Producer Sebastian Kole (worked with Alessia Cara) live streamed on Periscope a studio session with Fifth Harmony's Ally and Dinah Jane who are currently working on their 3rd album. At some moment, you can hear music in the background with the 2 girls voices. There's also a male voice. It could be a collaboration with another artist or maybe they'll eventually replace the male voice with Normani's or Lauren's.

-Appreciates Katies willingness to guest on all the shows
-Now that Katie is not tied down to one show, they have had a spark of creativity for the character
Discussion post? It's gonna be a rough one.
-Speidi are on the war path
-Bianca is revealed to be seeing someone on the outside
-Speidi try to taunt Kim during nominations
-Kim alleges that Speidi spit on her which prompts Spencer to demand BB let him contact his lawyer for defamation of character
-Speidi continue to taunt Kim throughout the day and act like children
-Kim puts BB in their place
-Jamie is confused as to where to go with Bianca following the big revelation
Summary: This is a literal masterpiece of a music video. This instant classic is being slept on. No Haitians were harmed in the making of this incredible cultural lodestone, as far as we know. This is all the summary this timeless artifact needs, tbh.
ONTD, how would you spend $100,000?
