Laura and Daken have bloody bonding time in this All-New Wolverine exclusive

24 hours later, Sean Hannity decides that, nevermind, Roy Moore is okay

Jordan Peele on Get Out and the Golden Globes: "We don't want our truth trivialized" 

Although there is one upside to the Golden Globes classifying Jordan Peele’s hit “social thriller” Get Out as a comedy—namely, that it’s more likely to win big awards in that less competitive category—there are also several compelling reasons to oppose the decision.

Concerts of any genre are hotbeds of unwanted contact, but do not for a second think about being a creep at a Drake show.
