A New Look for a Redesigned Set of Books
TV shows have a way of getting remade and rebooted as do movies and movie franchises. In some cases, TV shows are rebooted as movies and vice versa. When you have a property as popular as the Harry Potter book series, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets the wild idea to reboot that as well. Bloomsbury publishing has announced that they plan to rerelease the entire series of Harry Potter books with new covers and artwork approved by author J.K. Rowling to inspire a new generation of readers (and, likely, to tempt the older generations who have already bought the books to re-purchase the new versions). Thankfully, the text of the books will be left completely intact but the look of the books will be completely revamped. Have a look below at what the new Harry Potter will look like. More »
Surprise! Many of the homosexual bits have been cut out of the book
When Morrissey published his Autobiography in the UK back in October, many folks (me, included) were pretty surprised to read how open he was about the homosexual relationship he had with a man named Jake Owen Walters. Once news of Moz‘s admission started to spread and be commented on, he issued a statement denying that he is homosexual and instead labeled himself as a “humasexual“. Shortly there after, it was reported that Autobiography would be released here in the US … which was released this past Tuesday. It turns out that portions of Moz‘s openness about his relationship with Jake have been edited out of the US version of the book. It’s unknown who made the decision to censor the book but it seems obvious why the edits where made … which, I must admit, is very disappointing to me. Read on to learn more about the censoring of Morrissey‘s autobiography. More »
True Blood star Joe Manganiello has released a new book titled Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted which, the very long title informs us, is a fitness book that teaches readers how to bulk up and get jacked out. To promote the release of his book, Joe posted a childhood photo of himself back when he was a scrawny little basketball player on his official Twitter profile to show how far he has come with his physical fitness. The difference between then and now is striking. Click below to see the photo and then watch a promo video for Evolution that will attempt to get YOU to buy a copy of Joey Man‘s book. More »
How Dirty do YOU want It?
Now that the principal casting has been completed for the much-anticipated big screen adaptation of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey, we turn our attention to the next most important thing about the film … just how dirty is the movie going to be? Now, I haven’t read the book series myself but from what I understand, the sexual escapades in the book get a bit raunchy (tho, not as explicitly raunchy as other erotic novels can get but raunchy enough for many readers). In order to do the books justice, some say, the film has to deliver on the explicit nature of the sexual play described in the novels. And so, to satisfy folks who want the raunch and still release a movie that can be shown in most movie theaters in this country, plans are in the works for Fifty Shades of Grey to be released in two versions … a rated R version that will tone down the explicitness and an NC-17 version that will be as dirty as you please. Sounds like a good idea to me, to be honest. More »
It’s that time of the year again when the folks in charge of publishing the Oxford English Dictionary decide what will be the Word of the Year and today we learn that the selection has been made. The word selfie has been chosen as the Word of the Year by the Oxford English Dictionary because, they say, use of the word has gone up 17,000% since 2012 (even tho it was coined back in 2002). Oxford has come up with an “official” definition of the 2013 Word of the Year, which you can read in full below. More »
20 Images from the 8 Films
Harry Potter fans have a new reason to go to the post office because today we learn that the US Postal Service will begin selling a set of postage stamps that feature images from the Harry Potter film franchise. 20 different scenes from the 8 movies will each be featured on their own postage stamps. Beloved characters like Albus Dumbledore, Hermoine Granger, Lord Voldemort and, of course, Harry Potter will also each get their own stamps. I’m not sure that many Harry Potter fans still use postage stamps but I’m certain this collection will be very attractive to fans who collect. More »
