Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Will Voice The Intro For Mayweather Vs. McGregor

Image
Via instagram The Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight is already pretty big, but it’s getting a last minute boost thanks to the one and only Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who will lend his voice to the introductory video leading into the main event.“In my #IronParadise here in Vancouver, shooting the VO for the bad ass open of the #MayweatherMcGregor tonight,” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “I connected with my boy Conor this week. His intentions go far beyond his extraordinary skill. Like Mayweather, not only does he want to put on an epic performance for the world, but there’s a real visceral, raw, warrior mana (spirit) that he has in his blood.”

“There’s only one way you gain respect… by earning it. Let’s get after it boys and may the best man win.”The Rock is repped by WME-IMG, the entertainment giant that just bought the UFC last summer, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s popping up to support Conor as he attempts the impossible against Floyd Mayweather. And while he didn’t g…

Etta Candy Reminisces About Her Adventure With Diana Prince In This New ‘Wonder Woman’ Video

Image
As a DC character, Etta Candy doesn’t really have an enormous stack of Wonder Woman comics she can pull from to reminisce about her big cinematic adventure with Diana Prince. Thankfully, Etta knows how to keep a scrapbook and share a story.Lucy Davis reprises her work as Steve Trevor’s scene-stealing in a new promo video that presents the events of Wonder Woman from Etta Candy’s perspective. It’s mostly just a fantastic opportunity to relive the thrills of the movie with some quality Candy commentary tucked into things for good measure.“Diana brought with her some mementos from home… A sword and shield!” notes Candy looking back at Wonder Woman’s weaponry. “I prefer a sensible handbag. Although to be honest, I can think of some uses for a magical glowing lasso.”Speaking of Wonder Woman, director Patty Jenkins is confirmed to be helming the sequel and will be paid a pretty penny to do so. (As she should, considering the original’s insane box office haul.) Audiences won’t have to wait u…

The Existence Of A Clown-Only Screening Of ‘It’ Is Now A Very Scary Reality Thanks To Alamo Drafthouse

Image
New Line Cinema Who needs nightmares when you can be traumatized by creepy-ass clowns in person? The Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating the arrival of the 2017 cinematic take on Stephen King’s It with a clown-only screening of the movie. THEY ARE DOING THIS ON PURPOSE LIKE IT WON’T END IN RED NOSES AND DOZENS OF PEOPLE GOING MISSING! YOU MANIACS!The Austin location of the theater chain will cater to a clown-specific audience on September 9th with a special screening of It. All attendees are expected to be done up like a clown (I can count the Captain Spauldings already) and can also visit “an IT pre-party where we will have face-painters available for clown ‘touch-ups,’ a photo booth, raffles for prizes, and other terrifying merriment.” After the special It screening, the same venue that’s hosing the pre-party (Barrel O’ Fun) promises after film entertainment featuring “a little burlesque, sword swallowing, clowns and mayhem.” It’s an evening built on creepy clowns, but keeping things fun…

The Rock’s Life-Saving Role In ‘San Andreas’ Helped This 10-Year-Old Boy Save His Brother From Drowning

Image
Warner Bros. 10-year-old Jacob O’Connor knew exactly what to do when he found his brother face down in the pool at his grandmother’s Michigan home. He got his brother out of the pool and started to do CPR, something he’d learned after watching the film San Andreas starring The Rock. While the movie is full of a lot of fantastical elements involving a fictional Earthquake striking California, the movie now has a slight connection to saving lives in reality.
The scene that helped deals with Johnson having to save his daughter — played by Alexandra Daddario — from drowning near the end of the film. While the scene might be fantastical itself, the actions of Dwayne Johnson on the screen gave Jacob exactly what he needed to save his brother according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch:“The movie just popped up in my head and I started thinking about that scene,” Jacob, of Roseville, Mich., told The Washington Post. “And that’s when I started doing the compressions.”For half a minute, Jacob said …

Eight Ideas for the 78% of Americans Living Paycheck to Paycheck

This week, Harris Poll released the stunning results of a survey that indicated that a whopping 78% of Americans currently live paycheck to paycheck. Some of the other stunning findings from this survey:+ Nearly four in ten (38%) of Americans don’t participate in a 401k, IRA, or similar retirement plan.
+ More than half (56%) of American workers feel they will always be in debt
+ More than half (56%) of Americans also save $100 or less a month
+ Almost one in ten (9%) of American workers making more than $100,000 per year are living paycheck-to-paycheck
Perhaps just as amazing is this Bankrate survey, which indicates that 57% percent of Americans don’t have enough cash to cover a $500 unexpected expense, and that half of Americans with an income of over $75,000 a year don’t have enough cash to cover such an unexpected expense.Here’s the reality: the vast majority of Americans are completely unprepared for any kind of unexpected financial event.

Ragnarok: Crash Course World Mythology #24

Ragnarok! It's the end of the world, Norse style. It's got everything you want in an apocalypse. Earthquakes, destruction, armies of the dead, a giant evil wolf, giants with flaming swords, and a kind of happy ending. It's got it all. But is it really Norse? It wasn't written down until after Christianity had arrived in Europe. So how much influence is there?

How to Wear a Pocket Square

Image
The pocket square has been a staple of men’s fashion for hundreds of years. Wearing a pocket square correctly can make your business or formal attire more stylish and sophisticated—wearing one incorrectly can cheapen your whole look. Pulling off a pocket square is all about learning how to fold and style the accessory in a way that complements your outfit without becoming a chintzy distraction.EditStepsEditChoosing a Pocket SquareStart out with a basic white pocket square. White is a good color to start with because it goes with just about everything. It’s also less flashy, which can be helpful if you’re attempting to ease into the look. From white, you can move onto other unobtrusive shades like light gray, powder blue and khaki before introducing wilder colors and patterns.[1] If you want to add some flair to a plain white pocket square, look for one with colored contrast stitching.You can model an ordinary handkerchief as a pocket square when you’re first trying out the accessory.Mo…
