It’s funny, I think there are a lot of things where you have to let it go a little at times, kind of let it run its course. But I always think what it means is you have to learn to say it better. I think the best example of that was Anna. I wanted a girl whose only journey was sort of coming-of-age, where she goes from having a naive view of life and love–because she’s lonely–to the most sophisticated and mature view of love, where she’s capable of the ultimate love, which is sacrifice.

Even the song hit No. 1 on the iTunes rock chart. Hearing the news, James Gunn, who cowrote and directed both the first, $773 million–grossing Guardians and its sequel, jumped on Facebook to exclaim, … [Read more...] about Marvel Rules The Universe
The “Candace” in that first tweet refers to Candace Owens, one of the rising conservative trolls with whom Kanye aligned himself earlier this year at the start of his descent into MAGA-clownhood. Owens was apparently involved in the launch of Kanye’s new clothing line promoting the concept of Blexit–a so-called “black exit” from the Democratic party. In the end, apparently, all it took was a logo-fail to give Kanye a glimpse at how much his reputation has suffered in the eyes of his former fans. But even though the Blexit logo is indeed awful–it looks like the Jordan “jumpman” just gave up on life–the lack of enthusiasm around it was a long time coming. … [Read more...] about Kanye’s done with MAGA and Twitter is done with Kanye.
