|02:52 pm - More Disney unfunny, this time within the staff itself.|
( MASSIVE trigger warning for rape & victim-blaming )
All I can say is: Holy. Crap. Granted, I knew Disney has a darker side than their public image would suggest, but to hear about this sort of thing happening within a company with which you've grown up all your life is still pretty damn shocking.
In closing, I advise all of you: avoid the comments on the linked page, but do go to the page to boost the signal on this through the various social media channels.

|07:58 am - Further proof that ship wars will never ever end.|
All right, this one's a little late according to the WR comment, but I'm posting it anyway because this shit's too damn funny to let it pass.
Search the Taiora or Sorato tag on tumblr and you might run into the news that Hiroyuki Kakudou, the director for the first two Digimon series, recently answered questions about Sora and Yamato getting together at the end of Digimon Adventure 02 instead of the statistically more popular favorite, Taichi and Sora, on his Twitter account.
A while ago, Jippy posed a couple of questions to Kakudou via Twitter about what went on with the executive decision to make Sora and Yamato the canon pairing. He answered that Sorato had been planned since the beginning of Digimon Adventure, and that Taichi and Sora were never meant to be. Jippy took to tumblr and made some tl;dr posts discussing his replies, as well as using it to push her explanation of "Sorato is real" and overanalyzing the Taisorato relationship to contribute to individual character development, along with contradictory statements that Digimon was supposed to focus on friendship, not romance.
Lots of butthurt ensued.
( And here is some of it! Warning, tumblr links )
I personally never had a bone to pick in this fight since I hung out in the Jyou/Mimi corner and refused to touch the Taiora vs. Sorato vs. Taito bullcrap (specially since Sora was so hated by all "corners"), but still. Dammit people, it has been like... 10 years, if not MORE?

|05:48 pm - British tabloid trolls Scientology for great justice|
British tabloid The Sun published a brief article last week stating that "two flat silver disks" were seen above the Church of Scientology's British HQ, entitled "Flying saucers over British Scientology HQ". This, of course, prompted CoS lawyers to send a letter demanding an apology, and so today The Sun apologized... to the aliens.
In an article on Saturday headlined ‘Flying saucers over British Scientology HQ’, we stated “two flat silver discs” were seen “above the Church of Scientology HQ”.
Following a letter from lawyers for the Church, we apologise to any alien lifeforms for linking them to Scientologists.
Say what you want about The Sun, but that is some expert trolling, right there.

|07:22 pm - They're just screwing with em now...|
So Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel had a baby girl like secret super-ninjas and the fandom didn't find out for a week.
By the way, her name is Justice Jay.
In other words JJ or... J2.
( It's clearly another sign from the high gods! )

|01:06 pm - It can't be worse than Return to Riverdale.|
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has closed a deal for a live-action film based on the "Archie" comic books. Directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), the film will have a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, longtime comics author and a writer on "Glee."
Although no details about the plot were revealed, Deadline theorizes that Aguirre-Sacasa's script may have something to do with with his upcoming "Afterlife with Archie" series, which introduces zombies into the Archie universe. Indeed, the writer is no stranger to horror -- in addition to "Carrie" and the upcoming "Afterlife with Archie," Aguirre-Sacasa also penned quite a few "The Stand" miniseries for Marvel Comics.
