Anthony Bourdain Talks Harvey Weinstein, Clintons in Final Interview | Consequence of Sound
The late chef and author also took Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders fans to task
It’s been just over a month since the suicide of author, chef, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain. One of his final interviews, an in-depth discussion with Maria Bustillos of the newly-launched blockchain-based web magazine Popula, was conducted back in February and has just been published. The conversation covered a wide array of subjects, with Bourdain giving some characteristically blunt comments about many sociopolitical matters.
Prior to his death, Bourdain was dating Asia Argento, one of the women at the center of the New York Times article that exposed Harvey Weinstein. As such, Bourdain was an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a staunch opponent of Weinstein. While he and Bustillos were discussing how the only way to stop the immoral acts of powerful people is to publicly humiliate them, Bourdain imagined the former A-list producer forced to eat at a low-rent restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was his way of explaining that while he’d love “to see him, you know beaten to death in his cell,” it’s actually more satisfying to watch horrible individuals suffer the consequences.

How 20-Year-Old Kylie Jenner Built A $900 Million Fortune In Less Than 3 Years
Just 20 when this story publishes (she'll turn 21 in August) and an extremely young mother (she had baby daughter Stormi in February), Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 "lip kit" consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017. Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

Sheepish Wolves - skoosiepants - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Derek is a movie star. He's an action hero. He's a leading man with criminal scruff, more abs than are humanly possible, and the thick, hairy thighs of a god.

And he's currently nuzzling into Stiles's neck, like he's only just holding back from licking him.

Tori Spelling debuts AR makeover show 'The Look: All Stars' | Mobile Marketer
Augmented reality (AR) beauty app Perfect365 is collaborating with makeover competition show, "The Look: All Stars," hosted by actress Tori Spelling and hairstylist Kim Vo, according to a press release shared with Mobile Marketer. The hour-long show, which airs each week on Sinclair Broadcast Group's CW and MyNetwork TV stations, will focus on makeovers by hair stylists, makeup artists and fashion consultants who will complete two makeovers each episode.
The Perfect365 app, which has more than 100 million users, uses face detection technology that allows for accurate virtual makeup placement on both photos and in live video, via the app's AR "Live Mirror" feature. The app purports to know exactly where eyeshadow should be applied, how to contour cheekbones and where to place eyeliner and lashes, resulting in realistic AR makeup designs.
Perfect365 will create and release four new looks in its app each week leading up to the show, letting users get a sneak peek of beauty styles to see how the show's looks were created. "The Look" audience can then use the app to virtually try on the styles.

you’ve got me on pins and needles - jadore_hale - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“At any rate, I’m not here to steal from you. One of the biggest potentially most important moments in my life is coming up and I find myself in need of a custom tux.”

“A tuxedo?” Derek halted, then tried not to laugh as he gave the kid a good look up and down. “Biggest potentially most important moment of your life?”

Derek picked up the broom and started sweeping, shaking his head. “If you need something for your little costume party, kid, rent something from party city.”


Stiles Stilinski needs THE perfect suit and Derek Hale is just the tailor to make it for him. Only Derek doesn’t exactly know that Stiles is kind of a famous movie star…

Privacy - Spindiver - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles is a celebrity fashion blogger renowned for his pithy dissection of the world of haute couture. Being as famous as those he comments upon makes it hard to get some time to just be himself. On one special night of the year only, Stiles is able to go out into the world unnoticed and unjudged.

What if, on that night, he happens upon a man who intrigues him greatly?

What if he is not the only one with a secret?
