TV Station Refuses to Air Marriage Equality Ad Starring Gay Republican Soldier

What does a gay Republican war hero (the rarest kind of gay hero there is) have to do to get on his local TV news station these days? WRCB, the NBC affiliate in Chattanooga, Tennessee, turned down the opportunity to air a pro-gay marriage commercial starring local hero Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld. Ehrenfeld, a Navy physician who just returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, starred in a commercial for Freedom to Marry asking his fellow Tennesseans to consider extending him, his partner, and other gay men and lesbians in the Volunteer State the right to wed.

Bartenders Are Now Putting Popcorn in Cocktails

Much like bacon before it, popcorn is a food ingredient that has now crossed over into the cocktail world in a surprising number of ways. It's used as a garnish in some drinks, an infusion in others, and has found its way into syrups and bitters as well. Here's what's up with that: see more

Jesse Eisenberg Plays a Super Stoned Super Spy in the Upcoming American Ultra

Who says stoners can't be super spies? That's the premise of Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg's new film American Ultra. In it, he plays a dormant tool of war who, like Jason Bourne before him, comes to the harsh realization that he's got a very particular set of skills. These include but are not limited to: disarming thugs with guns, killing assailants with his bare hands, and driving a Humvee through a plate glass store front without giving the massive amounts of damage incurred a second thought. The movie also stars John Leguizamo, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton, and Topher Grace, see more

Life Is Strange Might Just Be the Best Video Game Ever Made

A mere two days after the Internet lost its collective mind in the bid to dissect Mad Men's ambiguous final episode, a French developer called Dontnod Entertainment quietly released the third installment of its episodic video game Life Is Strange—and in the process dropped a cliffhanger that proved about a hundred times more electrifying than whether or not Don Draper produced an ad for Coca-Cola. Life Is Strange has been trickling out over the usual platforms in two or three-hour increments every month-and-a-half since January, when "Chrysalis", the premiere episode, hit digital shelves. The first two episodes were very good, see more

Watch Trevor Noah Bring Sexy Back in the New Daily Show Trailer

Jon Stewart's chair isn't even cold (or empty) yet, but his successor, Trevor Noah, is more than ready to fill it. At least that's how it seems in a new trailer announcing Noah's start date (Sept. 28!), which shows the palpably eager comedian trying out a variety of nightly greetings, none of which bear much resemblance to Stewart's signature welcome. Indeed, after watching Noah hump a chair, do a series of karate chops, and yell "I am the Daily Show!" at the top of his lungs, we're more curious than ever to see what this "new and sexy" show see more

The 10 Most Epic Disaster Movies of All Time

In San Andreas, half of California is leveled by an earthquake—and of course The Rock is on hand to help. It's the latest in a long and substantive tradition of disaster films, a genre that seems to have dwindled to obscurity over the last decade. It's now superhero movies, for better or worse, that fulfill our apparently insatiable desire to see city-scale destruction realized on the big screen, but it just isn't the same. We need to see skyscrapers topped and highways torn asunder without supernatural interference. We need to imagine ourselves in the throes of it: evading debris, hopping see more

Drake Got Namechecked at the National Spelling Bee

How do you know you've become a cultural touchstone? When the word-happy folks at the Scripps National Spelling Bee drop your name effortlessly as Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj drop songs on Tidal. If you're the congenial Canadian hip-hop star Drake, that means you walk away with the honors. In the video above, the 28-year-old Madonna kisser was used in a sentence to contextualize the word bacchius, which refers to a "rare metrical foot used in formal poetry." When 13-year-old spelling bee competitor Dev Jaiswal needed the word to be placed in a sentence, the announcer had this to say: see more

Small Apartment? This Stylish Furniture Disappears When Needed

In every small apartment, there's a difficult choice attached to the limited square footage: Is your space better utilized as a dining room or a dance floor? To get a dining table is to go the adult route, to commit to having dinner parties only and edging out the possibility of throwing a party party—unless you're down with guests dancing on the table. Then that's your own liability. A better solution is to get dining room furniture set up to appear and disappear according to your hosting whims, like RockPaperRobot's brand new now-you-see-it, now-you-don't Ollie Collection. Both the Ollie see more
