Watch Kristen Stewart Give SNL’s Annual Super Bowl Commercial a Big Gay Makeover – Vanity Fair

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

Saturday Night Live has a relatively recent tradition of airing a fake Totino’s commercial starring Vanessa Bayer the night before the Super Bowl. But this year, the tradition got an edgy added boost of queer indie cinema aesthetic, thanks to host Kristen Stewart. Hot on the heels of publicly expressing her own sexuality in the most forthright way she has yet, the historically private Stewart backed up her claim with…

What’s cooler: Nike’s self-lacing shoe or a DIY self-lacing LEGO shoe? – The Verge

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

Last year, Nike gave us all the Back to the Future vibes with its self-lacing HyperAdapt sneakers. They’re super future looking, of course, but they also cost $720. That’s a lot of money. If you’re not in the income range to spend nearly $1,000 on shoes, but would also like to be an elite who doesn’t have to bend down for an unruly lace, you might have another option: LEGO….

Film Review: ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ – Variety

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

The first thing to say about “The Lego Batman Movie” is that it’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like “The Lego Movie” (2014), it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox. The movie uses digital animation to create the illusion that it’s set in a herky-jerky universe of plastic Lego bricks — but it has…

SNL: Watch as Kristen Stewart’s Accidental F-Bomb Overshadows a Fiery, Gay, Anti-Trump Monologue – Vanity Fair

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

As many people were quick to point out, if Saturday Night Live was hoping to antagonize Donald Trump, they picked the perfect host in Kristen Stewart. Back in 2012—when the presidency was just a glimmer in Trump’s eye—he got (way too) involved in the public breakup of Stewart and her then-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson and publicly shamed her on Twitter. Those tweets—as well as Stewart’s sexuality—played a part in her droll,…

SNL: Watch Alec Baldwin’s Trump and a Ghoulish Steve Bannon Go to War – Vanity Fair

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

As the headline-grabbing personalities of Donald Trump’s administration keep making themselves known to the American public, new opportunities for the S.N.L. cast to unveil wickedly memorable impressions keep cropping up. Kate McKinnon and Beck Bennett have already made a splash as Kellyanne Conway and Vladimir Putin, respectively. Frequent guest John Goodman put early dibs on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. But the honors of portraying Trump’s closest advisor and Time…

Restaurant serves black, red and yellow lego burgers – Telegraph.co.uk

Posted: Sunday, February 05, 2017

It’s one of the latest – and weirdest – additions to the Philippines’ culinary scene: the Brick Burger.  A rectangular beef burger in a bun shaped like a piece of Lego, and there are three, very intense, colours to choose from.  The restaurant first opened its doors in August 2016, after owner Jergs Correa realised his dream of a fast food joint that would cater to Lego lovers.

After Mattel’s Brutal Holiday Season, Will Hasbro Look to Swallow Its Rival? – TheStreet.com

Posted: Saturday, February 04, 2017

“They’re baaack!” That was the reaction from Columbia business school professor Leonard Sherman, who likened the possibility of Hasbro (HAS) approaching Mattel (MAT) about a merger yet again to the poltergeist that haunts the Freeling family in Steven Spielberg’s classic 1982 horror film. Sherman is the author of If You’re in a Dogfight, Become a Cat! Strategies for Long-Term Growth, which advises companies on how to “break away from the pack”…

Self-lacing sneaker uses Lego to go ‘Back to the Future’ – CNET – CNET

Posted: Saturday, February 04, 2017

Few pieces of footwear are as iconic as Marty McFly’s self-lacing Nike Mag sneakers from “Back to the Future: Part II.” In 1989, when the movie came out, they were just a fictional dream. Now Nike has the real (very expensive) deal, but industrial designer Vimal Patel found a much more fun and far less practical way to get a self-lacing sneaker: use Lego and build it yourself. Patel posted…

Lego: a love story – The Boston Globe

It’s tough to recall how it all started; time, unfortunately, has stripped away the details. What you can say for sure is this: One day, you were a chunky toddler with a biting problem. And the next, you were a 4-year-old who had been introduced to Lego, wondering how you’d ever lived without it. Advertisement From the start, you knew that Lego was different from other toys. It made the…
