For Wednesday, May 14, 2014:
Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has announced he will retire at the end of the season due to a persistent knee injury. There have been many claims in recent years that a specific loss or personnel change has marked the end of an era for Barcelona and almost all of them have been exaggerated nonsense. But it's difficult not to see Puyol's departure as a loss of that magnitude.
Puyol has spend his entire career with Barca. The start of the tribute video below shows when a shy 14-year-old Puyol was tipped for the first team and referred to as "the hairiest" one television in 1992.
In a club increasingly criticized for coming off as pompous and arrogant, Puyol has always been a player who has been impossible to dislike even while fully committing himself to the "more than a club" mantra in a non-ironic way. He's the type of player who will break up his teammates' prolonged goal celebration choreography, get his face stapled in the middle of a match and refuse to cover his legs with a grandma blanket like everyone else while sitting on the bench in Moscow.
He's also the type of person who would take off his captain's armband, put it on a teammate who just returned from having a surgery to remove a tumor and have him lift the Champions League trophy.
Upon announcing his departure, Puyol said (via Sky Sports):
"I am a man of few words but I will try and explain how I'm feeling.
"As I said a few months ago, my knee is still troubling me and my time at Barca will end from June 30.
"We've tried to find a solution but that's not been possible. But I want to thank everyone at the club. I can now fight my injury without the pressure of playing.
"I've done what I've always wanted to do and been very happy. I've lived the dream of thousands of children and I'm privileged.
"I came here as a child and I leave with a family. I want to thank all those at the club who have made the club work every day that I have been here."
Puyol (and his hair) will be missed not just by Barcelona fans, but all supporters of the game and of good people.

NEW COMEDY MUSICAL TV SERIE BY ALAN MENKEN ON OUR SMALL SCREENS THIS SUMMER
They may have found love in a hopeless place, but now it's over. After a few short months together, Rihanna and Drake are once again on the outs, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
"Rihanna and Drake had another fight," a source tells Us. "He is too in love with her, which has always been the problem. They have been fighting, but that could all change any day now. It is how it always is with them."
After a tumultuous dating history, the "Diamonds" singer and the "Hold On, We're Going Home" crooner were first spotted back together in Paris in February.
RiRi attended Drake's concert in France where the two were spotted dancing and talking all night, and by March they were seen holding hands after a London club outing.
PHOTOS: Rihanna's sexiest nude moments
But when Rihanna threw a post-Met Gala bash, Drake was nowhere to be found. Another source confirms they are "currently on yet another break."
Back in June 2012, Drake, Rihanna's ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, and their respective entourages got into a brutal fight at WIP nightclub in downtown Manhattan. Rihanna "loves this!" a source told Us at the time. "Men fighting over her? Are you kidding? Of course. [She] loves the drama."
Looks like Aubrey was just an option, a number and can go back fucking macy's and red lobster randoms
Avengers Assemble for a heartbreaking cause!
Sophie Caldecott in this article from May 12, 2014 explains that her father, diagnosed with cancer, wishes to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier but was unable to go to the cinema because of his illness. The DVD release will probably too late. So Caldecott tries to get Marvel to send her father a copy of the movie.
In the course of this, she asks Marvel actors for support and they promptly came! Uniting under the hashtag #capforstrat, actors like Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Cregg and more already posted their selfies as seen below. Not only to make Caldecott's wish happening but also to show their support and compassion for the fight against this dreadful desease.
UPDATE: Mission Accomplished!
This is so sweet. Apparently Christopher Markus, one of the screenwriters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is already in contact with the family and trying to help them out, best of luck to you Strat. Also, fuck cancer.
Formal charges have been brought against Hernandez for his involvement in a 2012 drive-by shooting.
Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on murder charges for the deaths of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado.
The 2012 Boston incident was a drive-by shooting, with Hernandez now believed to be the shooter. Abreu and Furtado were pronounced dead on the scene.
At the time, the police had known Hernandez had been at a nightclub where a fight occurred prior to the Boston homicides. He was investigated in connection with this incident after he was indicted for the unrelated 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.
In a press conference, District Attorney Daniel. F. Conley told reporters their investigation was “never about Aaron Hernandez. This was about the victims.”
Hernandez is currently being held without bail after pleading not guilty of the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.
Following months of speculation, Foo Fighters have finally confirmed details of their highly-anticipated eighth studio album. The as-yet-untitled record, serving as the follow-up to 2011′s excellent Wasting Light, will arrive in the fall through Roswell/RCA Records.
The album’s release will coincide with the airing of Dave Grohl’s new HBO TV series, which was first reported yesterday. According to a press release, the series will document Foo Fighters’ sessions in eight different cities — Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York — as they record the album in various legendary studios.
The press release explains: “One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.
“Each episode delves into the singular regional identity of each city-how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns-ultimately celebrating their common bond: Every artist that appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with the universal dreams of making music and making it big.”
The first episode of the series will premiere on the eve of the band’s 20th anniversary. Grohl himself served as director.
Additional details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

That moment when your cat casually walks up,then abruptly ATTACKS your custom satin Oscar de la Renta gown during your fitting for Met Ball.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) May 5, 2014
“I’ve never seen more fashionable people lose their composure quicker than when a cat walks up to a satin, custom Oscar de la Renta gown and then decides to make a home inside of it,” the singer told PEOPLE of the cat’s Met Gala antics while at the Keds Style Icons Event at Nordstrom at The Americana at Brand.
“She just passed, dug her claws in and started to roll … like when you see a crocodile attack an antelope on National Geographic,” explained the star, 24. “That’s what she tried to do to the dress.”
Luckily, Swift’s little ball of fur — who “fancies herself as quite a hunter” — didn’t cause any real damage to the “Red” singer’s frock. Said Swift, laughing, “She’s a chubby housecat. She’s not very strong!”
“I got ready with Karlie [Kloss],” 👭OTP👭 Swift said. “We were both wearing Oscar de la Renta, and we kind of shared a hair girl and got ready in a hotel room. It was so much fun getting ready with one of your best friends.”
CAT POST! has your cat ever tried to ruin your oscar de la renta dress, ontd?

If Leland Palmer were still around, he’d be dancing like a crazy person right now. There’s a new Twin Peaks box set coming out July 29, and it includes nearly 90 minutes of never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes from the prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
This is the footage that fans created a Facebook petition for back in 2011, and now they’ll get their wish, thanks to a box set that was personally supervised by Twin Peaks mastermind David Lynch.
“During the last days in the life of Laura Palmer many things happened, which have never been seen before,” Lynch said in a statement. “They’re here now alongside the new transfer of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Twin Peaks, the television series.”
Watch an exclusive teaser for the lost footage below:
Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn hasn’t gone remotely mainstream yet, though there have been overtures and he’s certainly flirted with Hollywood. “Drive” may have starred Ryan Gosling, but it was either loved or hated by audiences and did poorly at the box-office (it’s a terrific movie that puzzled mainstream theatergoers). He followed that up with an even more enigmatic and arty film, “Only God Forgives,” and it’s possibly the strangest movie Ryan Gosling will ever star in.
And studios have come calling ever since "Bronson" landed him on the map. Refn almost made an adaptation of “Logan’s Run” for WB, but eventually bailed, he was attached to “The Equalizer” for a minute, but that was clearly not his bag, and even before that he almost directed Harrison Ford and Channing Tatum in the Paul Schrader-written “The Dying of The Light” (which Schrader eventually made this year with Nicolas Cage; it’s coming out next year).
But studios keep trying to harness his wild, mad man talents. Sony is next, they’ve convinced him to go into early talks to direct a buzzed-about horror called ‘”The Bringing.” Based on a spec script by Brandon and Phillip Murphy gaining traction in Hollywood, the movie's catalyst, according to Deadline “a widely circulated video of a young woman who displayed erratic behavior in an elevator at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles, the place where such killers as Richard Ramirez called home at one time or other, and where numerous suicides have occurred. The woman, Elisa Lam, was found dead in the water tanks at the roof of the hotel. The script has nothing really to do with that that tragedy but it created a germ of an idea focusing on a man investigating a death at the hotel, and the nightmare he stumbles into.”
It could be a modern-day “The Shining” if it works out and that type of film by Refn would be amazing. Though will a studio actually go for it? We’ll see. He's parted with them several times already over clashing visions. No word on some of the other projects that Refn is developing including his potentially Tokyo-bound horror/possibly sex-thriller with Carey Mulligan.
The actor appeared in court for a brief arraignment hearing on the case filed after he was accused of punching a man at the restaurant in March.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Scandal star Columbus Short has pleaded not guilty to felony battery for a fight that seriously injured a man at a West Hollywood restaurant earlier this year.
Short appeared in court for a brief arraignment hearing on the case filed after he was accused of punching a man at the restaurant in March.
The actor's attorney Jeff Jacquet had sought to fast track the case, but Deputy District Attorney David Schorr said the injuries involved were too serious to qualify. He said Short is accused of cold-cocking a man, knocking him unconscious and fracturing his left eye socket.
Superior Court Judge Keith L. Schwartz said based on the injuries the case wasn't eligible for the so-called early disposition program, which could have settled the case before a preliminary hearing in which more details about the altercation would be disclosed.
Short was ordered to return to court on June 5 to set a date for the preliminary hearing.
The case is one of several involving Short and allegations of violence. He faces a misdemeanor spousal battery case and his estranged wife has a temporary restraining order against him. Tanee Short claims her husband threatened her with a knife during a fight in April.
She filed for divorce after the incident, and a hearing on the restraining order is scheduled for May 21.
Jacquet has said Short will contest the restraining order and it will require a lengthy evidentiary hearing.
Short announced last month that he wasn't returning to the hit series Scandal for its fourth season.
New documentary goes behind the scenes at crazy cartoon convention
My Little Ponies were the magical equine toys introduced in 1983 to the delight of small girls around the world.
Now the childhood classic is back - and it's found a surprisingly masculine (and much older) fan base second time around.
Meet the 'bronies', an 80 per cent male group of My Little Pony fans, who love the toy and the TV spin-off so much, they spend their lives dressing up as their equine heroes.
The bronies, most of whom are aged between 18 and 35, also express their love for My Little Pony by writing poetry and fan fiction, creating pony-themed avatars and by attending conventions, one of the largest of which is held in Manchester.
Now a new documentary has gone behind the scenes at BUCK, the British brony convention that attracts hundreds of My Little Pony fans living in the UK and Europe.
One regular attendee is 'Cheesey Burger', the 23-year-old head of the 'Manechester' bronies, who hails from Salford and says he loves everything about My Little Pony.
'16 to 25 year old males watching a show about ponies from a little girl’s show in 1985...' he muses. 'You’d normally think that that would be weird.
'But then I am weird myself, so I mean I watched it and I loved it and I can understand totally why anyone would get behind it.'
'It’s innocence, it’s fun, it’s colourful, it’s, you know, it’s a nice escape from the grey world as it were for the time being and it brings me joy,' says 48-year-old brony, Neil.
'It’s something I like to share and if I can share something good and, you know, make people happy, then great.'
Others say the sympathetic story lines covering issues such as friendship and fitting in is what most appeals to them.
'It’s not just about world problems, just about simple problems,' says one. 'It's things like having no friends, trying to find friends, finding out about friendship is magic.'
'Friendship is Magic', the strapline for the My Little Pony cartoon relaunched in 2010, is something you hear about a lot during a visit to BUCK and for many bronies, neatly encapsulates why they love the show so much.
'For me it was ironic at first,' says 'Spitfire', a teenage brony. 'But then I kind of got into it, you know, I appreciated the message within it.
'It’s got decent values to go by and you don’t find that on TV much anymore.'
While it's easy to see why sympathetic tales of friendship featuring strong female characters might appeal, what's harder to understand is the 'cosplay' element of bronydom.
Although not every brony feels the need to dress up, others choose to express themselves via colourful costumes, many accessorised with horns, that reference their favourite pony character.
'Bronies usually only dress up during meet ups or conventions to celebrate their mutual fandom, so it's not unlike a comicon event,' explains Ariel White, who produced the upcoming episode of Outsiders with Darren McMullen that features the bronies.
'This is not Peter Pan syndrome but a passion for a show that symbolises friendship amongst those who often find it hard to make friends.
'Often these young men spend much of their social interaction online and following the rerelease of the cartoon in 2010, the unlikely and often lonely fans found each other thus creating this subculture.
'We’re very accepting of everything, because you know, people come from all walks of life here,' adds Cheesey. 'At the end of the day we do watch a little girl’s show.'
And in an echo of White's comments, more say becoming a brony has given them a sense of security as well as a place where they feel accepted and fit in.
'A lot of people [at BUCK], I kind of feel would have very low self-esteem on a normal day,' explains one.
'They find it hard to make friends, and this is where they feel comfortable.. . They can interact with people, they can talk with people and it gives them a confidence boost. They feel as if they’re a part of something.'
'The fandom simply wants to find like-minded people whom they can become friends with,' adds White.
'At the end of the day, it's all about their key message: Friendship is Magic.'
The bronies appear on Outsiders with Darren McMullen, Friday at 10pm on the National Geographic Channel.

Given the crowd at the Television Academy last night for History's "Vikings," you'd be hard pressed to guess that the season 2 finale didn't score the numbers of the first (3.4 million, representing a drop of 6 percent from last year). Still, the network is making a solid play for Emmy nods. Given the dark twists of this season, from an unexpected final betrayal to a demanding and brutal character arc for Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a little recognition doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility for this cast, many of whom were in attendance. I'll be posting my one-on-one interviews with them soon, but here's the download on a panel that went from jovial to emotional and, in one case, very personal.
Winnick, Clive Standen (Rollo), George Blagden (Athelstan), Jessalyn Gilsig (Siggy), Donal Logue (King Horik), Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki) and Alyssa Sutherland (Princess Aslaugh) joined creator Michael Hirst on the stage. Though Travis Fimmel (Ragnar) couldn't make it, that didn't mean his castmates couldn't talk about him.
"I stole Floki from Travis Fimmel," Skarsgard joked, noting that everything about the actor while out of character informed his quirky boat builder. "He's so far out in his pranks... he put a live chicken in a car. By the time it was found, there was shit everywhere."
"One time he got a production phone and changed all our call times," Gilsig added.
While everyone agreed it's impossible to prank the prankster, there are ways to get under his skin. "You treat him super normally. That freaks him out," Skarsgard said.
The making of the show was the primary topic, with major props given to both costume design and the make-up department. "The make-up is more dirt and sun spots," Gilsig said, noting she tried to convince the make-up artists to put her sun spots along her jawline and cheekbones. "You try to maneuver the make-up to be more flattering."
Still, Winnick finds the process of getting into a "chain mail dress that takes 25 minutes to get me into it" a "transformation process... It's more of a ritual to get into character."
Logue noted he didn't have to do much to transform into a Viking. "I was super hairy, so it didn't matter. I was watching footage and I thought someone in the scene was one of those biker dudes we had for background, and then I realize, oh, that's me."
Surprisingly, everyone in the cast was eager to give props to the on-screen talent most of us don't think much about -- the background players. "Watching other shows, you can sense the royalty of the cast, and there's a disconnect between the main cast members and the background. You need that sense of connection, and we had it."
"Female cast members were contacting me, wanting to find out what other training they needed to be shield maiden," Winnick said. "It was amazing how passionate they were."
"When I'm whining, I remember there's always one guy who didn't get in the heat tent and didn't get passed coffee," Skarsgard said. "I know I have to get over it."
"There's no complaining in 'Vikings'," Gilsig joked.
"We were a family," Logue added. "These people are in there with us rowing the boat all day. There's a real camaraderie between the cast and the background. I remember one day in a fight scene I'm running toward this guy and I say, how's it going? He's this big Polish guy, and it's 4:30 in the afternoon, and he looks at me and says, 'I haven't eaten today, but it's okay.' And he's just smiling and happy to be there."
The conversation took a serious note when, in discussing Rollo's decision to fight then submit to brother Ragnar, Standen talked about where his motivation came from. "When it becomes apparent he can't kill his brother, he's been ripped open. I've been married for ten years, and at the time we were [separated], so it mirrored it for me. He [realizes] his brother is his one rock, the one he can trust and depend on. Thankfully, we're back together now."
Gilsig also talked about the scene in which King Horik demands a show of loyalty from Siggy by making her have sex with his son. "Reading it, everyone in the cast was giggling, but in the room we felt the humiliation and the power struggle and what he was doing to his son... I'm prone to kinky, but I didn't get to go there."
Logue also discussed the death of his character. "The last episodes were intense. I knew I was leaving this show and this group of people, so it's emotional."
Winnick leaned forward and smiled. "It was hard to kill you."
Logue then had a question for the audience of mostly Emmy voters. "Do you guys watch [the footage sent out]? Or is it just, hey, Robin Williams did a 'Homicide,' that must be pretty good!" The only response he got was, of course, uncomfortable laughter.
The final twist of season two (spoiler alert) was also a topic of conversation. Skarsgard talked about the challenge of convincing the audience Floki had turned on Ragnar. "When people go back and watch those episodes again, there will be clues... Floki Method acted his way through this. This is vast mafia shit. He couldn't tell his wife, because if she knew, she could be tortured."
Sutherland also hopes fans go back and watch for her storyline leading up to the birth of Ivar the Boneless. "I think people may have projected stuff onto this character, and some of that is because of how much people love Lagertha, but I think they'll see I give a shit about my kids." On a similar note, she said she's petitioned the costume department to consider making a Viking maternity line. "I think there's a real need for it. Everything was so detailed and flattering."
As far as a favorite episode, Hirst decided to answer for Fimmel. "I think I know Travis' favorite scene. As much as he loves scenes that don't have any dialogue at all, it was the scene when he talks to his dead daughter." Mentioning how he fought to keep the use of music to a minimum in the scene and how it made him think of his own daughters, he added, "I really wept the first time I saw it." If Fimmel can make a reserved Brit show creator cry, he probably has a better shot with Emmy voters than he knows.

I really missed our Friday Vikings posts.
