Elton John live review Rocket Man reaches the stars on last ever trip

With an incredible band, a Taron Egerton duet and Aretha-style gospel fervour plus an about-turn on Brexit Eltons farewell tour is wonderfully over the top As his Elton Johns life has been defined by excess too much drink, too much coke, too much love so its appropriate that his final tour is, in a bit of millennial slang that he would surely approve of, extra: Farewell Yellow Brick Road is three years long, with about 300 dates.

Heres What 29 Actors From Harry Potter Are Doing Now

The Harry Potter series has, undoubtedly, been one of the most memorable phenomena of our generation with millions of kids, teens, and adults burying their faces in the books or watching the magic on-screen in suspending disbelief. And while the themes of Hogwarts and magic are still kept alive with the Fantastic Beast series just unfolding, it’s hard to deny that the original feeling of wizardry started fading the moment everyone watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Despite the fact that many of the young actors started their careers with the Harry Potter film series, they grew up in front of the entire world as the sequels came out, and as things reached their end, they …

Does ‘Swamp Thing’ cancellation point to bigger issues with DC Universe?

DC Universe‘sSwamp Thingwas canceled after just one episode, inviting immediate speculation because there wasn’t any obvious explanation. It was too early to know anything about the show’s ratings—a metric that’s already complicated on a streaming platform aimed at comic book readersand TV/movie viewers. The show’s pilot episode also gotpositive reviews. So why was it canceled so fast?

As New York struggles to undo the lies of anti-vaxers, moms step in to help

(CNN)There’s no question: The ongoing measles outbreak in New York is in a league of its own. New York’s effort thus far “doesn’t feel sufficient anymore,” a federal health official told CNN. “You’ve had eight months of sustained transmission and most people would agree you’re not ahead of it.” While observers said New York officials have worked long and hard at quelling the outbreak, they pointed out some areas where there have been missteps. First, public health experts criticized the state for allowing children to go to school even if they’re not vaccinated. Second, some say health authorities in the state waited too long before asking the federal government to send in help. Third, there are concerns state authorities botched …

HBOs Los Espookys explores the dark side of Scooby Doo

Los EspookysThe Chile-filmed The pilot is soapy and absurd, and a bit adjacent to ATX Television FestivalScooby DooSNLFrom just the pilot we dont get much of a sense of what life is like in an everyday way, besides the undercurrent of Catholicism. The series actually doesnt feel like its from any specific time period until it gets to the scenes shot in L.A. Velasco andCiangherotti come from more dramatic acting backgrounds, so it balances out the shows jokes and gags. For example, there’s a bit about Charles Boingo, the owner of airport wifi, or even a sight gag involving Tati spinning a fan as a form of employment. Only the pilot was screened, but the second episode, The Inheritance Scare, …

She wants women to have good sex. So she started a website where they can talk about it (safely)

That was the question put to women in a blog post published earlier this year in a country that is deeply religious. “Within the international development discourse, whenever African women’s sexual and reproductive health is mentioned, they are spoken about as vectors of disease, or the conversation is about needing to control the fertility of African women,” she says. “This discourse leaves out so much, specifically, the importance of African women controlling their own bodies. Pleasure is connected to well-being and so comprehensive sex education is essential to a woman’s full development. If you don’t have control over your body, what can you really have control over?” Kobby Ankomah-Graham has been part of the Adventures community since the blog launched, …

Depth of Field: The Spooky Symmetry of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump

Symmetry disquiets. So often people, objects, or circumstances align too perfectly, too terrifyingly for our comfort. Order can feel unsettling and foreign when chaos is the sole unchanging factor. This week, nothing brought that notion to light more starkly than the image of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner standing, uniformly framed, in a window at Buckingham Palace. Captured by Samir Hussein, the inanimate, spooky tone of the photograph evokes an immediate emotional reaction. There's a strange emptiness to it all, and yet the picture is rich in metaphorical dimension. Its composition carries a dark tenor, reflective of present and lurking evils. What is it trying to tell us? Starting Monday, President Trump, along with his family, made a state visit …

Google Stadia Lands This YearIf You’re Willing to Pony Up

Streaming high-quality video to your laptop or television has been a given for more than a decade now. Streaming high-quality games the same way? Not so much. Yet, after numerous stalled efforts throughout the '00s, cloud gaming is poised for its highest-profile deployment yet, with Microsoft, Tencent, Electronic Arts, and others all working on their own platforms. Out of that increasingly crowded field, it seems all but certain that Google's forthcoming Stadia service will be the first to emerge. In a digital keynote this morning, Google's Phil Harrison and John Justice announced a slew of new details, from launch titles to pricing to (not-quite-exact) timing. The short version: Stadia will officially arrive in November. The slightly longer version: … if …
