What’s Next for Social Media?

One thing is for sure: social media is here to stay.  We’ve become so engrossed in what’s happening in the lives of people that we kind of know – as well as that one friend from high school that you still talk to, and your family that now stalks your profile tirelessly – that if all social media shut down tomorrow, people would riot.  Mark Zuckerburg’s house would be in flames and that dude that you automatically follow when you create a twitter account would mysteriously disappear.  The first socialRead More

Trump’s Bid For Buffalo

Donald Trump is among those expressing interest in owning The Buffalo Bills. The NFL team is currently under the ownership of Mary Wilson. Her husband, Ralph Wilson Jr., passed away just under a month ago at the age of 95. The team has stated on its website that it is in the process of planning the sale of the team in a way that is compliant with the NFL, the state, and county. Although Donald Trump made his name as a real-estate developer, he’s been involved in football before. He onceRead More

Utah Family Shows Up Cher from Clueless Okay so this story is mostly depressing, but after reading into the facts more I’m thinking there’s something very strange going on here. A woman in Utah has been accused of killing six of her own babies and storing the bodies in boxes in her garage. Megan Huntsman admitted to strangling and suffocating the children immediately after their births. So all of that is completely disgusting and wrong but here’s the really weird WTF part that got me. Huntsman’s husband had no ideaRead More
EnterViews is Hilary’s weekly series with emerging artists via various forms of digital communication. Last week as I sat down at work, I did the first thing we all do—check Facebook. It was then that I saw a link from two New York friends. The site was StroudFunding. It was a cheerful looking thing, in blues, whites, and blacks, with the tagline “Changing the way Ian Stroud makes money.” In 2009, the current popular crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, hit the streets of the internet. Soon, film students across the country wouldRead More
This will only apply to half of you. As a filmmaker, writer, creator, dreamer, and human being, I’ve held onto physical copies of things since I was a kid. I saved every letter from cousin Maria, I cut out every newspaper article on the Oscars. I scrapbooked each family reunion which included The Plate (a sign-in paper plate record of who attended that year). I have a collection of DVDs, VHS, and blu-rays. I have the binder paper where I wrote my first story in 8th grade to cope withRead More

Nick Cannon’s Whiteface Antics Spark Controversy

Alter egos: A lot of stars have them. Beyonce has Sasha Fierce, David Bowie had Ziggy Stardust and now, apparently, Nick Cannon has Conner Smallnut. And people aren’t impressed. Cannon, who is set to release a new album titled, “White People Party Music” on April Fools’ Day, has caused a bit of a stir over the past few days, posting photos and videos of himself in whiteface and skater attire on Twitter and Instagram. Captions underneath the posts include hashtags like “FarmersMarket,” “GoodCredit,” “BeerPong,” and “CreamCheeseEating,” and introduce the pastyRead More

This Website Will Change Your Life: The Useless Web

While Sophie’s first installment in this series of life-changing websites was on the serious end of the spectrum, this volume of the series is on the utterly inane and ridiculous side. While productivity and useful tools can certainly change your life, so can a website that can consume hours of your time doing unproductive things! Hey, nobody ever said “This Website Will Change Your Life” meant that it would change it for the BETTER. Alas, meet The Useless Web. The Useless Web is exactly what it sounds like: useless.

5 Things You Need to Stop Doing on Facebook

I know there are way more annoying things you all do…but these 5 have been bugging me the most lately. 1. Posting 1,001 pictures of your dog/cat/baby Okay I get it. You’re really excited about your dog/cat/baby and think it’s the cutest thing in the world. I love dogs! Please, share a picture of it so I can get really jealous and comment how cute it is and how lucky you are. Cats, kinda cute. And babies look like little fat aliens.

I love Wednesdays, and so should you. This week we give you the absolutely stunning Jade Elizabeth. -Jade Roper- Twitter: @naturallyjade Instagram: jade_in_la Known for: Being on The Bachelor, being featured in Playboy, and being gorgeous in general. -In all of our time finding gorgeous women for our #WCW feature, this beauty might take the cake.
