‘American Vandal’ mockumentary entertains, confounds

It's part satire, part teen-drama, but "American Vandal" spoofs "true crime" docuseries like "Making a Murderer" into a school setting---and resoundingly succeeds. The eight-episode Netflix show follows a California high school dealing with a confounding mystery: Who spray-painted a phallus on each of the 27 teachers' cars? The main suspect is the class clown, Dylan Maxwell (Jimmy Tatro), who has a history of drawing them. His pranking and vandalizing ways are no secret to his schoolmates and teachers, making him an easy scapegoat. With surveillance videos of the crime missing, two students, Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) investigate, hoping ...Keep on reading: ‘American Vandal’ mockumentary entertains, confounds.....»»

Snoop Dogg taunts Trump by smoking marijuana outside White House

American rapper Snoop Dogg took the unorthodox route when it came to protesting against US President Donald Trump. He recently told his fans on social media that he had an urge to get up and go to the White House. The video was shared on Instagram last Nov. 8 and showed the rapper inside his house, contemplating whether he should go there to smoke weed or not. "What would a dog do? Pee on a tree? Sh*t on a lawn? Perhaps smoke a blunt," Snoop Dogg said in the video. "Should I do it? Should I do it? If 20,000 motherf*ckers hit this like button in less than 3 minutes then I'm gonna go to the White House to do it." 20,000 likes, though, was a measly number for Snoop Dogg, who had o...Keep on reading: Snoop Dogg taunts Trump by smoking marijuana outside White House.....»»

Spike Lee reacts to newspaper confusing him for Stan Lee: ‘Not yet’

While Marvel fans the world over mourn the passing of legendary comics creator Stan Lee, one newspaper in New Zealand announced the death of a different American creative. "Characters first, superheroes next: Spike Lee dies at 95," reads the headline on the front page of the Gisborne Herald. The picture is at least correct: that of the white-haired, mustached white man who made superheroes such as Iron Man and Spider-Man rather than the bearded 61-year-old black man known for the films "Malcolm X" and "BlacKkKlansman". "There's something different about Spike Lee but I can't quite place it," quipped Twitter user @Ohheykenny yesterday, Nov. 13, posting a picture of the headline and S...Keep on reading: Spike Lee reacts to newspaper confusing him for Stan Lee: ‘Not yet’.....»»
