Watch a Robotic Trump Destroy the World in Absurd Vaporwave Video

In this new, pretty damn wild video from Mike Diva, an animated Donald Trump runs the world, builds a wall, and kills us all…you know, just as we would expect if he were elected President. So, while we’ll likely never find out what will happen if the big-headed billionaire were to actually be elected well, […]

The Return of Cookie: Here Are the Premiere Dates for Fox’s Fall Shows, Including ‘Empire’

It’s just now about to be summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start getting excited for fall. You know, with the leaves, and the pumpkin spice everything, and the sweaters, and the coffee and, ah, the romance of it all. And the TV, just the greatest TV. Huge amount of TV. When it’s too […]

New Scripted Series Coming from ‘Making a Murderer’ Creators — and George Clooney

Good news for fans of Making a Murderer: the series’ creators, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, are finally working on a new series, and George Clooney is involved. (His production company, Smokehouse Pictures, is behind the deal.) Bad news for fans of Making a Murderer: it’s gonna be scripted. However, it’s still based on a true story. […]

25 Essential 2Pac Tracks, Ranked

Not sure you heard, but today is Tupac Shakur’s birthday; were he still alive, the wildly talented and equally controversial performer and recording artist would have turned 45 years old today. The first trailer from his upcoming Benny Boom-directed biopic, starring Demetrius Shipp Jr. as 2Pac, dropped today. As we often tend to do when an […]

Listen to Patti Smith Recite Poetry Written by Nico on New Song

Do you love the lyrics of the late, great Nico, but wish you could hear them as read in a slow, staccato way by art-legend Patti Smith? Then have we got the thing for you: Patti Smith reading words written by Nico over moody, slow-churning (but beautiful) music. It’s from the new album Killer Road by Soundwalk […]

The Actor Playing Tupac in the ‘All Eyez On Me’ Teaser Looks Shockingly Like the Real Deal

Tupac Shakur has come back to life, yet again, only this time as a person — not a hologram. We’re talking about the new All Eyez On Me teaser. It’s a glossy little promo, scarce on meat, but the biggest takeaway is just how much the actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. looks like the West Coast hip-hop […]

Attractive Man from Richard Linklater Movie to Play Superman in ‘Supergirl’

Finally, we know who is going to play Superman in Supergirl, the show on the CW that is about Supergirl, who is Superman’s cousin. Against all odds, this person is a man. He is also an actor, and he’s also attractive. He is an attractive, male actor named Tyler Hoechlin. Maybe you’ve never heard of him, […]

‘Central Intelligence’ is Funny and Sweet, and We’re As Surprised As You Are

You might assume Central Intelligence is garbage, and I wouldn’t blame you. It’s yet another run through that wheeziest and most retrograde of genres, the male buddy action/comedy; it stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, two engaging performers whose filmographies are, to put it charitably, hit and miss; its tagline (“Saving the world […]

Anthony Kiedis Casually Saved a Choking Baby While Filming “Carpool Karaoke”

Earlier this week, the Red Hot Chili Peppers rode around Los Angeles singing and stripping with James Corden as they filmed “Carpool Karaoke.” What was omitted from the bizarre segment was that, somewhere between wrestling on a stranger’s lawn and stripping down to sing the hits, lead singer Kiedis saved a little tiny baby from choking. […]

The Definitive List of Must-Read Poetry Books from 2016 (So Far)

We’re starting a monthly column that will feature short reviews of new poetry collections, although, as in this case, not all of those collections will have been released during the month in question. Here we’re playing catch-up. Many of these books were released earlier this year. Still, the reader will be none the worse for considering […]

Watch This Absurdly Good Video of Teens Performing a Number from ‘Hamilton’

Hamilton has turned musical theatre on its head, and after winning 11 Tony Awards and a Pulitzer prize, this fact is becoming more and more obvious. Everybody has noticed the show’s absurd success, including the students of Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts in Scarborough, Ontario. To say the students are passionate is an understatement. Their teacher told the […]

Did the White House’s United State of Women Summit Live Up to the Hype?

If you work in media, politics, or pretty much within a 10-foot vicinity of women, chances are you were hit with a press release, text, email, invite, or some other form of buzz about the event that took place in the White House earlier this week. The White House hosted the first ever United State […]

End of Days Report: Looks Like Trump Might Be Starting His Own News Network

Here is perhaps the finest, most concrete sign that politics and entertainment have become far too intertwined, if they were ever separate at all: Today, Vanity Fair’s online vertical The Hive ran a particularly terrifying report, which argues that Donald Trump might be looking to start his own news network, or, maybe more accurately, his own media […]

Jay Leno and His Great Hair Just Can’t Stay Away from ‘The Tonight Show’

This week saw the premiere of the new season of Jay Leno’s Garage, the NBC show in which Jay Leno gets to talk about all the cars he’s bought with all of his money. He also gets to drive things like tanks and the Batmobile. It’s a great show, if you’re Jay Leno. Another great show, […]

Here at Flavorwire, we pride ourselves on not only writing some of the best content on the internet, but keeping an eye on all of the great writing that other folks on the ‘net are doing, too. Today, we have a queer history of gentrification and policing in NYC, a long overdue Democratic filibuster for gun control, […]

The Period Is Here to Stay

If we lose the period over the course of the next decades or centuries, so be it. The prospect doesn’t bother me overmuch, even if I’m fond of using periods as a way of marking the completion of a “unit of sense,” or negotiating between multiple units. Still, I don’t think we’re losing the period, […]

Donald Trump and the Two-Hour News Cycle

Monday morning, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called President Barack Obama a terrorist sympathizer. Remember that? Probably not; it didn’t get a lot of coverage. But in one of his regular call-in appearances to his fan club at Fox and Friends, Trump said of Obama’s response to this weekend’s massacre in Orlando, “Look, we’re […]

Here’s the Fresh-Faced Cast of That ‘MADtv’ Revival, Including the Voice of Slimer

Earlier this year, it was announced that CW had revived MADtv for eight hourlong episodes to be aired during primetime, beginning July 26. At the time of the announcement, it was unclear whether the cast would be made entirely of burgeoning comedians, or if the producers would try to secure more established stand-up stars, and it seems that […]

Milo Yiannopoulos Briefly Booted From Twitter, Then Reinstated Because the World is Terrible

For a moment, it looked like this horrible week might have brought at least one piece of good news, for earlier this morning, Gamergate icon/non-payer of writers/generally shitty human being Milo Yiannopoulos was booted briefly off Twitter. It’s unclear exactly what he did to finally get summoned to the headmaster’s office, or even if the […]
