Why I Don't Buy the 'Begin Again' Hype
I might be late to the party, but if you haven't see Begin Again yet - don't. Please. If you really, really must see it, stop reading this immediately. Major spoiler alert. This movie was supposed to be great. It starred Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Adam Levine. It was set in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. It had a stellar soundtrack. So where did it go wrong? First things first - are we supposed to like Mark Ruffalo's character? Sure he's artistic and depressed and 'is all about the music' but he's also a drunk dead-beat dad. He only comes back to life when Keira Knightley's character sings a half-catchy tune at open mic night in a dive bar. We rewind and see why she's singing her sad song in the first place and its a classic 'dating a musician who gets famous and cheats one me' story. Oy vey. She then is convinced by this hairy drunk man (yes, that's Ruffalo) to miss her flight back to London and record a record - without a record deal, recording studio, or any money whatsoever - and sleep on her friend's floor. Of course, Ruffalo is miraculously friends with C-Lo Green who pays for the entire recording process and everything works out. And during this entire process Knightley is able to teach Ruffalo's daughter that she'll probably get more guys if she dresses like a lady and suddenly the family is back together again. Knightley then gets a record deal! Dreams come true! But then of course she blows it off because she wants to give her music away and, with Ruffalo's blessing, she uploads her songs to the interwebs and gets a whopping 10k downloads in the first week. This does not happen. Not even in this world of YouTube stars and Kickstarters. There are such things as happy endings and big breaks, but I found the story ridiculous, the characters bland, and the portrayal of independent songwriters infuriating (as someone who has been involved in the music business and plans to pursue a career on the business side) Directors and script writers - stop trying to hide your 'meh' film under Keira Knightley's talent. Even she couldn't fix this one. The only positive thing I could say is that they didn't force a weird Ruffalo/Knightley love line. Even though there was that weird 15 minute long montage of them running through Manhattan together sharing an iPod? Did I totally miss the point of this movie or do you guys agree? I'd love for someone to convince me to like this!
This DIY Deadpool Pizza Is Pepperoni Perfection.
Chances are, if your friends are anything like my friends, everyone has yet to shut up about the new 'Deadpool' movie - so much so that I think it's safe to say that this month was definitely a Deadpool takeover. And thanks to this epic Deadpool pizza tutorial, your love affair with all things Deadpool is still officially far from over. If you thought his thing for good food begins and ends with chimichangas, think again. Here's what you need to make a Deadpool pizza of your own: - Pizza dough (The vlogger in the YouTube embedded below will show you how to make dough from scratch, or you can be like me and just buy the premade stuff.) - 1 jar of pizza sauce (I think so long as you've got at least a cup, it's enough.) - 1 package of shredded mozzarella (The 16-ounce package, so roughly 2 cups.) - 2 - 4 slices of mozzarella (This is for the eyes. Feel free to switch it up with provolone!) - 1 can of sliced black olives (I know some of you don't like olives, so if you can think of an equally delicious substitute to create his trademark black eyes, sub it here.) - 1 package of sliced pepperoni (Roughly 6 - 8 ounces should do!) Ready? Here we go. So first, you're going to preheat your oven to 450F. Then it's time to get that dough nice and spread out on your pizza pan, using a spoon to spread the pizza sauce all around the center of the pie. (Just, you know, leave the ends alone so you have a crust later. Pizza without crusts are super weird.) Next, you want to cover all of your sauce with some shredded mozzarella cheese. Don't skimp because this is going to help the pepperoni stay fixed to the pizza when you bake! Now it's time to layer on all of that pepperoni. Starting from the outside, work your way inward in a circular motion, laying the pepperoni down slice by slice. (If this isn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, you're in the wrong card. Dat pepperoni.) So in the video, she uses a teardrop-shaped cookie cutter to the primary shape before slicing it down the middle to create two eyes. I know I don't have teardrop cookie cutters at home, and you probably don't either, so feel free to use a knife to (carefully!) create the shape yourself! Now it's time to use the sliced olives to finish Deadpool's face. Keeping everything looking as symmetrical as possible during this step is key. Lay down your slices of olive similarly to how you laid down your pepperoni, and FINISH HIM!!! Throw him (gently) into the oven, and leave him there for about 10 - 15 minutes - or until he's nice and golden. Don't worry. It's Deadpool. He can take the heat. And there you have it: a Deadpool pizza - warm and gooey, just how you like him! For more specific instruction, check out Rosanna Pansino's full Nerdy Nummies tutorial in the YouTube above! And for more viral vids, follow my YouTube Nation collection! So who's going to try this out this weekend? (And more importantly, who's going to save me a slice?!)
The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
How to Be Attractive: According to Johnny Depp
Oh, Johnny Depp, we all love sex with girls (unless we don't, which is fine, and I'm sure if this wasn't a gif you'd continue that sentiment with like "and it's cool to love sex with anyone else, too" or something). Anyway, for some of us that love the sex with the girls we wonder "how can I be more attractive than I already am?" Don't wonder any longer! As the Prince of Vingle Hipsters and the 12th Place Ribbon Receiver in The Suburban New York Johnny Depp Look Alike Contest, I think I could give some advice on how to be more like ol' JD over here. Find Joy in the Little Things Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is probably one of his more popular roles that could teach us a lot about our lives and how to experience it. Look at him run with that jar of dirt. So happy, such pleasure, right? And I think you could take Depp's Jar of Dirt and apply it to all the little things you sometimes ignore. Stay Curious There's something extremely attractive about people who are always curious. And not in the "killed-the-cat" kind of way. But always looking to know/meet/learn something/someone new. Curious people go out and do things, curious people explore and find adventures to embark on, curious people are the real unusual folk and it's the weirdos and the wild ones that are the most fun to be around. So be weird, be wild, be curious. Know What You Like Knowing what you like (and ostensibly knowing what you want) is very important. Imagine you're about to go on a date or something, right? And they ask you where you want to eat/drink/whatever and instead of giving a definite answer, you kind of just mumble to yourself. They're never going to want to be around you again. So know what you like and be vocal about it. Focus on the Future This can be taken a lot of different ways but in terms of being an attractive ladydude, you've got to remember not to talk or even think about your past. I know, you've been hurt (we all have) but this next step, this next adventure isn't going to hurt you. It can be the best time of your life or it can be history repeating itself. It's all on you kid. You and your potential mate both want to move forward so let them know casually that progress is the only thing you're looking for... or something. And there you have it, Vingle Babies. There it is. You don't necessarily have to be these things but you know, slick that hair back and put an e-cigarette in your mouth and you'll be as close to Johnny Depp as you possibly can be. I'm finding it weirder and weirder that we kind of compare our likenesses to Movie/TV Actors as a level to how attractive we are/aren't. I mean, don't we all get our haircuts based on something we've seen on television or in the movies? It's kind of weird to think that our standards of beauty are based off the way someone looks. Kinda gross, isn't it? Anyway, if you feel like you wanna be like Johnny Depp, do your thing. But if you don't, well you could always try being yourself.

Adult Industry History
The human interest in sex is nothing new, but the internet has made it much easier to explore and exploit all the nuances of desire. The online porn industry makes billions of dollars in profits every year, but the big beneficiaries are the producers, not the women and men who perform sexual acts in front of the camera. Mia Khalifa was a porn actress for a brief period at the end of 2014. SHe gained worldwide fame when she appeared in a video of sexual content wearing an Islamic hijab (the scarf worn by some Muslim women to cover his head) that caused great controversy and caused him to receive threats from supporters of the self-styled Islamic State (IS). To what extent does pornography still dominate the internet? He currently has 16 million followers on Instagram and if his name is searched on Google, thousands of results appear. But Khalifa is not proud of its worldwide fame. After years of threats, he is now talking openly about his past. What does your story tell us about the porn industry and culture of the 21st century? This is what he told in an interview with Stephen Sackur on the BBC's Hard Talk program. Khalifa, who was born and raised in Lebanon in a Christian family, received death threats from suspected members of the Islamic State. In many ways, you are a very famous woman. But the origin of your fame lies in your brief participation in the porn industry. Is it hard for you to deal with that? Absolutely. After quitting, my Instagram account was hacked by EI supporters, who posted propaganda everywhere. So Instagram deleted it and I didn't make a new account until a year later, when I decided to accept my destiny as the infamous porn star and try to change the narrative. So I created an Instagram account again and tried, in the absence of a better term, to become an influencer. If you put your name on Google, countless links to videos appear. The words "porn star" appear immediately, is that something you will never overcome? I am trying to make it. I am not very friendly with Google and we are trying to change that. The first thing that appears is a site that I have no control over, but that from the beginning is written in the first person, as if it were mine. And on my Wikipedia it is published as my official website. And we have tried countless times to eliminate it, even through legal action, but the company does not listen. And we have made countless proposals. "Why I chose a career in pornography" You were taken by your parents as a child from Lebanon to the US, where you received your education. You are clearly intelligent, you went to the university in Texas, where you studied history. How did you get into the porn industry? I do not believe that low self-esteem discriminates against anyone. Does it matter if you come from a good family or if you come from a not-so-good environment? I struggled all my childhood with being overweight and never felt attractive or worthy of male attention. And suddenly, in my first year of college, I started losing a lot of weight by making small changes. And by the time I graduated, I was ready to make a difference. I felt very self-conscious about my breasts, because that was the first thing I lost when I lost almost 50 pounds (22.6 kg). Florida cities like Tampa and Miami have been attracting models, producers and talent scouts of the porn industry for years. So my biggest insecurity was my breasts, and I wanted to recover them. And once I did it (Khalifa underwent a cosmetic surgery operation), I began to attract all this attention from men and never got used to it. I felt that, unless I clung to that and did what was asked of me or what was expected of me, it would be insignificant. And after feeling what that validation and compliments was like, I didn't want that to end. You were a young graduate who wanted to find a job and a boy on the street told you he could work with you. He was sincere and said he was in the porn business. What made you feel attracted to this proposal? That was not how it happened. It wasn't "Hey, do you want to get into porn?" It was more a "You're beautiful, would you like to model a little? You know, you have a great body and I think you would be great at modeling." Things like that. And after I arrived at the studio, it was a very respectable place, a magnificent place in Miami, in Doral, Florida. It was clean. Everyone who worked there was friendly. All their cubicles were decorated with family photos. As if it were nothing doubtful or something that made me feel uncomfortable. The first time I entered was not the first time I filmed a porn movie. It was the second time. In the first one, it was more than signing the paperwork, etc.
