The Bamon scene at the end was the best scene the show has had in a while. It's nice the show decided to give Damon some character development out of the blue, but it's just too weird to see Caroline stanning him and the show has never properly addressed the way Damon raped her back in Season 1.
Steroline is a mess. This may be Stefan's darker side but it's still part of who Stefan really is and I feel like Caroline just doesn't get that.
About Jacob's Ladder her new movie and other projects
I don’t know exactly when it’s coming out, I think we actually have to go in for some re-shoots. To clear up some things and hangout more with those beautiful talented actors I get to work with. I have a few things that are cooking right now too, also in the film and then in theater but I haven’t signed on anything. So I really shouldn’t talk about it but yeah, I’m really excited about this year. It’s looking like a good busy year, I feel like I’m back on track.
the decision to leave Sleepy Hollow
There’s a whole history behind that, that goes back to the very first year. It’s kind of one of those hieroglyphic, look at the puzzle pieces kind of thing. You know? Diehard fans know what’s been going on, I’ll say it was mutual, sure.
Sleepy Hollow, Abbie Mills, the fans
Yeah, it was a really a wonderful opportunity and I really loved playing that character. I can not tell you how much I loved those fans, and I did have some really good times on the show. Sometimes things just take a turn. I haven’t seen the show this year because I’ve really been away and working on other things. I really do hope that it’s doing well and that people are still enjoying what they’ve been coming up with. There’s some really great crew and cast there, and some great creative thinkers on that production. I wish everybody well but I do think that my time there was up. I don’t think they were able to do anything else with my character, or couldn’t imagine it.
That’s kind of that but that goes to say, I’m doing writing now. Working with people and also working for other people as an actor but going into being more of a behind the camera type person. I realized that there is lots of stories that people don’t really understand or that they see for a woman, a woman of color, young black woman. They don’t understand sometimes nuance or corks. There are just certain stories that people can’t imagine telling with someone that looks like me. We have to sort of be a part of that tipping point.
Behind the scenes, on stage, film actress or TV ?
Really the focus is just, in these times with what’s going on today. Different rights and people realizing there are a lot of issues that have gone, on both sides un-communicated. There is so much of a undercurrent of fear and just lack of identification of the humanity of people on both sides. I think it’s important to do anything that kind of speaks to that, anything.
Anything that’s well written and that’s kind of about something. Not hitting you over the head with it but anything that speaks to that. Asks you, doesn’t preach, but asks you to sort of see what part you’re playing in it. Whether it’s a play or a musical or whatever. I’m really open to just really great material. I’m really excited to be free and doing the things that I love to be completely honest.

Filmmaker (and director of the film 'Aliens') James Cameron made the following comment with the upcoming 'Alien: Covenant' movie.
"The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map. Ridley [Scott] did the first film, and he inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and science-fiction fans with that one movie and there have been so many films that stylistically have derived from it, including my own Aliens, which was the legitimate sequel and, I think, the proper heir to his film. I sort of did it as a fanboy. I wanted to honor his film, but also say what I needed to say. After that, I don’t take any responsibility.
I don’t think it’s worked out terribly well. I think we’ve moved on beyond it. It’s like, okay, we’ve got it, we’ve got the whole Freudian biomechanoid meme. I’ve seen it in 100 horror films since. I think both of those films stand at a certain point in time, as a reference point. But is there any validity to doing another one now? I don’t know. Maybe. Let’s see, jury’s out. Let’s see what Ridley comes up with.
Let me just add to that — and don’t cut this part off, please — I will stand in line for any Ridley Scott movie, even a not-so-great one, because he is such an artist, he’s such a filmmaker. I always learn from him. And what he does with going back to his own franchise would be fascinating."
Conan was contacted by the Church of Scientology prior to his interview with Leah Remini, where she was promoting her show on A&E. During the interview he stated,"We were contacted by the Church of Scientology. Today, they sent us a statement. They're obviously not happy you're on the show and they said in their statement that Leah Remini is doing this because she wants the fame, she wants the money, and she wants the attention. I was thinking today that it was very strange. I don't think I've ever had a document sent to me like that before and I've been doing this over 24 years."
Remini also said in the interview that "church" is not suing her because she is telling the truth, and they know that she is telling the truth. She also demanded that scientology should pay her $1.5 million in damages for trying to shut down her show and ruin her reputation. A+E President and CEO Nancy Dubuc has also said that Scientology has been harassing her on social media about the show
17-year old reigning world champion Evgenia Medvedeva from Russia won the European Figure Skating Championships with a total score of 229.71, beating Yuna Kim's 2010 Olympic winning score of 228.56.
Evgenia has a controversial long program to the score of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, complete with wailing sirens and screams. Her program was choreographed by Ilia Averbukh, who skated a tribute to 9/11 at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City and also choreographed Julia Lipnitskaia's girl in the red dress from Schindler's List, among other Holocaust-themed programs.
Ageless goddess Carolina will celebrate her 30th birthday in 2 weeks.

Celebration of women filmmakers triggers heated debate between Salma Hayek, Jessica Williams and Shirley MacLaine https://t.co/1gTKvxq25g— Los Angeles Times (@latimes) 28 janvier 2017
"My feeling is that we are about to go to war. But be careful that we don’t fall into victimization. I don’t want to be hired because I’m a girl. I want them to see I’m fabulous. Don’t give me a job because I’m a girl. It’s condescending.”
"Trump presented a challenge to each of our inner democracy and everyone needs to explore their core identity.”
“I have a question for you. My question is: What if you are a person of color, or a transgendered person who — just from how you look — you already are in a conflict?”
“Right, but change your point of view. Change your point of view of being victimized. I’m saying: Find the democracy inside.”
"I’m sorry. Can I ask you a question?”
“Who are you when you’re not black and you’re not a woman? Who are you and what have you got to give?”
“A lot. But some days, I’m just black, and I’m just a woman. Like, it’s not my choice. I know who I am. I know I’m Jessica, and I’m the hottest bitch on the planet I know.”
“No, no, no. Take the time to investigate. That’s the trap! ...There is so much more.”
“Right. The more is inside.”
“I think what you’re saying is valid, but I also think that what you’re saying doesn’t apply to all women. I think that’s impossible.”
“What part of it is impossible? You’re giving attention to how the other one feels.”
“Because I have to,”
"If you have to do that, then do that. Then that’s your journey. But I want to inspire other people to know it’s a choice.”
“I don’t see myself a victim. Jessica doesn’t see herself as a victim. But it’s how you're read.”
“I also feel like the word ‘victim’ — I feel like it has bothered me. When I talk about feminism, sometimes I feel like being a black woman is cast aside. I always feel like I’m warring with my womanhood and wanting the world to be better, and with my blackness — which is the opposite of whiteness.”
Jill Soloway (Transparent creator)
“With intersectional feminism, it’s our responsibility as white women to recognize that when there are people of color or people who are queer — we need to prioritize your voices and let you speak the loudest and learn from your experience, because we haven’t been listening. So please, Jessica, finish your thoughts.”
“I think we need to not speak over black women, not assign them labels.”
“What does this mean, ‘speak over?"
“To project your ideas on me. I think there is a fear that if we present an idea that, ‘Hey, maybe [black women] have it a little bit harder in this country’ — because we do; black women and trans women do — if we’re having it a little bit harder, it doesn’t invalidate your experience. I really am begging you to not take it personally.”
"Four out of five women who use their services (Planned Parenthood) are women of color."
“So when you say women of color. Jessica, do you mind if I look at your eyes?”
Cora (celebrity chef)
“Wouldn’t it solve it if women just all had each other’s backs in general?”
“Sure. The thing is this, yes, all women can work together, but we have to acknowledge that black women have a different experience. She’s here struggling and we keep shutting her down.”
“I don’t think anybody here shut her down,”
“Can I interrupt, because I feel misunderstood. It’s not shutting you up. I feel misunderstood on one point: We should be also curious about our brain. By being the best that you can be. That’s what I was trying to say to you. Let’s not just spend all the time in the anger, but in the investigation.”
“Baby, I’m Mexican and Arab. I’m from another generation, baby, when this was not even a possibility. My generation, they said, ‘Go back to Mexico. You’ll never be anything other than a maid in this country.’ By the heads of studios! There was no movement. Latino women were not even anywhere near where you guys are. I was the first one. I’m 50 years old. So I understand.”
“You don't understand,”

- the FBI has classified "Juggalos" as a gang.
- “Over the past five years, our legal team has heard testimonies and reports from Juggalos all over the nation who have lost custody of their children, been fired from jobs, denied access into the armed forces, and the most common consequence — being officially labeled as a gang member by law enforcement agencies for wearing Juggalo related clothing or brandishing one or more Juggalo tattoos.” says ICP on their website.
- In 2014, The Insane Clown Posse lost a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan to have the designation removed.
- The march is to show that they are not a gang but "a family that is united by a shared love of music and fellowship.""We may be the outsiders, the misfits, the weirdos, and the underdogs of the mainstream world, but as a result we have created our own world — one built on a rock-solid foundation of community, creativity, joy, and love."
- The march is scheduled for noon on Sept. 16 at the Lincoln Memorial.
have you ever been mistaken for a gang member?
Famous director, SLB, who has directed popular movies like Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani was attacked by members of a fringe right-wing group called Karni Sena. The attack happened on the sets of his new movie Rani Padmavati, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The movie is supposed to be on the story of Rani Padmavati (Deepika) who was a Rajput princess coveted by Alauddin Khilji, the famous military general and ruler of Delhi Sultanate dynasty. According to the story based on Malik Mohamed Jayasi's medieval poem Padmavat, Khilji (to be played by Ranveer Singh) defeated the husband of Padmavati (Shahid Kapoor) and when they heard of the loss suffered by their king, the Rajput women led by Padmavati, to protect their honor, committed jauhar (self-immolation). However this story has been communalized by many right-wing Hindu individuals and groups and has now crossed over from fiction to fact. Karni Sena, which is supposedly a Rajput-interest group think (unfortunately they are not alone; many believe in this completely) this is real history and have vandalized the sets of the movie and attacked the filmmaker. In a video taken by one of the goons, we can see Bhansali being beaten, slapped, shoved and his hair being pulled. The reason for this attack is an unsubstantiated rumor that there is a dream sequence depicting intimate scenes between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji which has since been denied by the production house. Supporters and members of the party claim that this scene is an insult to the memory of Padmavati and claim this is historical distortion (even though legitimate historians have denied claims of the existence of this story).
Bhansali has not filed a complaint yet and 5 people who were held for vandalism were released on bail on Saturday. He has stopped the shoot and has left Jaipur, Rajasthan where the assualt took place on Friday.

What happened on the sets of Padmavati is ridiculous.— Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) January 27, 2017

No member of our industry should be silent on this matter!!! It's calls for unity and NOT selective indifference!!! https://t.co/Adz6eWjggb— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) January 27, 2017
It is not even shocking. I expect no justice to be served in this country. Repeated and emboldened attacks by various right wing Hindu outfits have been a regular feature since the election of the present ruling party which provides them impunity. Those who follow Bollywood will remember the right-wing attacks against Aamir (against his comments about intolerance in India and for PK's satire on religion) and SRK (for intolerance comment, general existence, and now a trumped up controversy about Raees) and many others (KJo etc), the most notable was of course the 'ban' on Pakistani actors and the most ludicrous was the "controversy" over Kareena and Saif's baby's name. Increasingly there's a vile cohort of people online who attack Bollywood for being anti-Hindu (LOL) and hate Muslims for just existing. They are infuriated by the dominance of the three Khans (so, they pathetically support Hrithik and Akshay) and tweet nonsense at these celebs from various sock puppet accounts. Just take a look at the replies to each of those tweets I linked to. This is really sickening....for once, Bollywood has found its backbone (should have happened when these goons threatened Pakistani actors).

Sleepy Hollow's actress Jessica Camacho is scheduled to debut as the DC Comics character Gypsy in the January 31 episode of the CW's The Flash, but for some people her arrival will come with some unwanted connotations.
The term "Gypsy" itself is for many people a derogatory word with stereotypical associations and is considered a racial slur against Romani people.
Harold and Kumar actor Kal Penn responded to a racist social media comment he received by starting a fundraising page for Syrian refugees in the name of the guy who posted the comment.
Penn (who was born in New Jersey, btw) blocked out the name of the person who sent him the message, but other users quickly found the original comment and identified him as one Mitch Nachtman (mnachtman42). Nachtman has since deleted his comment and made his Instagram account private.
Although Penn set the original fundraising goal at $2,500, the page had already passed $175,000 within 18 hours of being created. He has since raised the goal to $250,000.
