LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the biggest game yet in the sub-series. It lets you play through the stories of all nine main films, with overhauled levels from the previous games. You don’t have to play them in order, either. The whole thing is laid out in an open-world format, and you can hop around from planet to planet at will, dropping into whatever scene you feel like playing from any of the films.

You take control of characters like Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Rey and Finn, as well as villains like Darth Vader and Kylo Ren. Combat has been upgraded with a combo system, as well as enemy health bars replacing the old one-hit-kill fights.

Since LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the last game in the series, The Skywalker Saga represents the first time The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker have appeared in playable LEGO format. Check out our LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga preview for more details.

André Leon Talley’s New Memoir Gets Bestseller Status

TALLEY-ING UP: André Leon Talley has locked in the number-six slot on The New York Times’ bestseller list for hardcover nonfiction with his new memoir.
”The Chiffon Trenches” created a firestorm of publicity in recent weeks, primarily due to Talley’s critique of his former boss, Vogue’s Anna Wintour. The book centers on his storied career, but it also addresses other aspects of his life like sexual abuse, weight struggles and ageism. Consumer interest in the book was so strong that his publisher Ballantine moved up the release date to May 19 from September and greenlighted a second run before it was officially out. The strategy seems to have worked, given Talley’s swift ascent to the bestseller list. Glennon Doyle ranked first for “Untamed,” followed by Michelle Obama for “Becoming.”
Talley’s recent interviews with Gayle King on “CBS This Morning” and  Tamron Hall on her eponymous talk show surely helped to sell a few books. But Talley said he was still surprised to make the bestseller list in seven days.
“Thrilled but kind of stunned by the whole thing,” Talley said, adding the accolade has been “somewhat distilled by this whole horror that has happened in Minneapolis [referring to the death of George Floyd

'Star Trek: Voyager' gets an unofficial 4K remaster thanks to AIAs with Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager is unlikely to ever get an official high-resolution remaster. The effects were shot on video rather than added to film after the fact, making it much harder to upgrade the quality than it was for The Next Generation. However, an unofficial project might get relatively close. Series fan Billy Reichard has started processing Voyager with a machine learning program that upgrades that '90s era image quality as much as possible. You won't forget that the show was made for tube TVs given the aspect ratio, but the AI is surprisingly effective — it produces something you probably wouldn't mind watching on an idle afternoon if you're a Star Trek devotee.

FDA allows new coronavirus testing tech before it gets emergency approvalThe FDA is determined to step up the pace of coronavirus testing in the US to cope with the recent coronavirus outbreak, and it's willing to greenlight technology at an early stage to make that happen. The regulator said it will allow new diagnostic tech to be used to test for COVID-19 before an Emergency Use Authorization request has gone through a review. This will only apply to validated methods from labs that are certified to handle "high-complexity" tests in line with key requirements, the FDA said, and doesn't amount to lowering standards — this is only to ensure there's "wide availability" of testing options.

Adam Thielen gets stitches on ankle after mishap in practice, hopes to play vs. 49ers

Maybe the curse of the Minnesota Vikings hasn't been lifted after all. After a huge win at the New Orleans Saints last week, one of the heroes of that game had an unusual injury in practice Wednesday. Receiver Adam Thielen, whose huge catch in overtime set up the game-winning touchdown, suffered a cut on his ankle that was significant enough that he needed stitches to close it, according to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero.

The Hoodie Gets an Exhibition Of Its Own in Rotterdam

IN THE HOOD: The hoodie is as much a clothing staple as it is a divisive cultural symbol and streetwear icon favored by youth subcultures and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs alike. Now, it’s getting its own exhibition at the Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, which opens on Dec. 1.
The Hoodie, which runs until April 2020, traces the garment’s history, starting with its role in 1930s workwear. A selection of designers including Rick Owens, Off-White and Vetements, and makers such as Bogomir Doringer and Campbell Addy will have hoodies on display.
Depending on who’s wearing it, the hoodie can be an indicator of profession, personality and values. More so than any other garment – except, maybe, jeans – the hoodie sits at the intersection of gender, ethnicity, age, and geography. Sometimes, it can even be a provocation.
“Today, we don’t associate black leather jackets with the outsider, they’ve been normalized, evoking a specific class and market. Hoodies, however, are touted as a trend – while also being demonized,” said Lou Stoppard, curator of the exhibition.
The exhibition aims to challenge viewers on who wears the hoodie, and what it represents. Digital footage, social media posts, and the garment itself are used to explore the role of

Chiara Ferragni Gets Into the Christmas Spirit for Printemps

TO TREE OR NOT TO TREE: It might only be November, but the next thing on Chiara Ferragni’s to-do list is resolutely Christmassy.
“All this got me thinking that I really need to put my Christmas tree up at home,” laughed the influencer and entrepreneur, in reference to the twinkling decorations surrounding the Christmas windows of Parisian department store Printemps.
“We usually get one for Dec.1, but last year I was so excited that I put one up on Nov. 15 — which was amazing because for a whole month and a half my house was so full of Christmas decorations, I loved it. The only problem is that it feels so empty when you take them down.”
Ferragni was chosen by Printemps to participate in what has become a Parisian tradition: The unveiling of the department store’s festive display, which this year has a Kawaii theme.
In partnership with Pomellato, for which Ferragni is an ambassador, the windows feature 60 playful articulated puppets in the shape of animals, imagined by Printemps and created by French puppeteer Pantomime. Each window will feature exclusive silhouettes and accessories created by brand partners for the Christmas season and will be on display until Jan. 6.

Paul Trible, founder and chief executive officer of Ledbury, said the capital will be used to expand its brick-and-mortar presence, including a store in New York’s Greenwich Village. A 1,600-square-foot store at 355 Bleecker Street, between Charles and West 10th Streets, is slated to open sometime next month.
Ledbury operates two stores: a flagship at the brand’s headquarters in Richmond as well as one at Cady’s Alley in Georgetown in Washington, D.C.
“With the closing of our capital raise, we feel like we’re in a spot to use the funds for our growth initiatives,” Trible said. “We’re planning to open around 10 stores over the next three years.”
Trible said the locations will be in major metropolitan areas such as Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco, as well as smaller markets including Charlotte, N.C., Nashville and Lexington, Ky. The cities are being selected by looking at Ledbury’s strongest online markets.
“We have 50,000 e-commerce customers and our top market is New York,” he said,

DWTS’ John Schneider Gets Emotional Over His Strained Relationship with His Children

John Schneider is hoping he can mend his strained relationship with his three children.

In an exclusive clip of Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, the Dukes of Hazzard alum, who played Bo Duke on the comedy series from 1979-85, gets emotional while explaining how country music and DWTS has affected his life.

“What country music means to me is it’s three chords and the truth and it shines a light on things that happen in everyday life that are wonderful, not so wonderful, and that are heart-wrenching,” Schneider, 58, says.

“I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. The worst part about it is that it’s wedged itself in between my three adult children and myself. Nothing I can do except hope one day one of my kids will call me up or show up. I look in the crowd every Monday thinking maybe tonight, maybe tonight.”

“If it weren’t for this music and now Dancing with the Stars, I don’t think I can survive it,” he admits. “It gives me great joy at a time where I desperately needed it.”

Earlier on in the season, Schneider briefly spoke towards his relationship with his children. whom he is not on speaking terms with.

“I’m hoping that I will do my family proud, I’ll do my love over there proud,” said Schneider told host Erin Andrews, referencing his girlfriend, Alicia, and added, “and maybe my children will speak to me again.”

After 21 years of marriage, Schneider’s estranged wife Elvira “Elly” Schneider filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on Nov. 14, 2014. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.

In September 2016, Schneider — he shares adult children Leah, Chasen, and Karis with Elvira — was ordered to pay his ex $ 18,911 every month, TMZ reported.

But in June, Schneider was sentenced to three days behind bars in the Los Angeles County Jail in June for failure to pay more than $ 150,000 in owed alimony payments to Elvira. The actor was released on the same day as his initial booking because of California’s overcrowded prison system, but his legal woes were not done with that.

Schneider was also ordered to serve an additional 120 hours behind bars for contempt, but that sentence was suspended by the court on the condition that he fulfills a four-part list of conditions, including filing back taxes to help clear title to their property in Apple Valley so that it could be transferred to her, paying his ex half of his owed earnings from Maven Entertainment, and offering certain financial disclosures before the end of the year.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Horny Dog Chases Potential Mate, Gets Stuck In Cat Door

A horny dog had to be freed by fire crews after she got her head stuck in a cat door while chasing down a potential mate.

Keeta was looking out the window of her owners’ home in Leicester, England, on Monday morning when she spotted a male dog in the garden. 

The 5-year-old American Bulldog, who was in season, decided to hook up with the other canine and raced for the tiny door designed for felines. Alas, her head fit through the cat door and her body didn’t.

She was trapped.

Determined to free herself, Keeta then ripped out the surrounding panel, but the frame remained lodged around her head.

The other dog — believed to be a smaller terrier — spotted the gap in the door, and took advantage of the moment to sneak inside, reports the Leicester Mercury.

Homeowner Nigel Page heard the commotion, and walked into his kitchen to spot the pair of pups together. When he opened the door, the male dog sprinted off.

Unable to remove the panel, Page called Leicestershire Fire Service; the firefighters then spent 20 minutes maneuvering the plastic panel safely off Keeta’s head.

Page, who adopted Keeta from a rescue center after she was abused as a puppy, said he was now waiting to see whether she would end up having offspring of her own.

“We don’t know whether they’ve done anything or not,” he told the BBC. “The other dog was smaller, a little terrier, but you don’t know. She had that thing stuck on her head so she might not have been in a good mood.”

Alexis Bittar Gets Political for Store Windows

Alexis Bittar is getting into politics — sort of.
Today, the jewelry designer launched a new series of window displays in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Unlike his previous displays, which include, most recently, artwork done by Bradley Theodore, these are less jewelry, and more, well, Trump.
In what he’s proclaiming a “salute to absurdity,” Bittar and his visual team have created a series of larger-than-life papier-mâché models in the likeness of Donald Trump’s head — bouffant hair and all. “I’ve been increasingly disturbed by the popularity of Trump in our country and some of the more insane things he’s said,” Bittar said. “I decided to channel my energy and use our creative talent to have a comedic commentary on his vanity coupled with a dash of Halloween craziness.”
The displays feature the model head atop a mannequin dressed in a money-print suit, standing next to a full-length mirror — and decked out in Alexis Bittar jewelry, of course —  a mix of bangles, brooches and necklaces.
Stores getting the Trump treatment include SoHo, Columbus Avenue and Madison Avenue in New York; Newbury Street in Boston; City Center in Washington, D.C.; and West Hollywood, Calif.

PARIS – A flock of sheep invaded the Palais de Tokyo in Paris this weekend as part of a global awareness campaign orchestrated by The Woolmark Company.
The three-day event, ending Sunday, includes artwork made of wool, a photo exhibit about the natural fibre, and a series of dance performances showing off wool’s versatile nature.

WWD caught up with Peter Ackroyd, global strategy advisor for The Woolmark Company, at the event.

Peter Ackroyd: Its diversity. It can be made into suits, blankets or sportswear, and we think we don’t even know all the end-uses of wool. But it’s not only a very diverse fibre — at the end of its life it goes back to earth and enriches the soil. It doesn’t end up as landfill.

“I’m just gonna do what I gotta do,” Cena said before hoisting the recently-retired “Daily Show” host onto his shoulders and body-slamming him to the ground.

While hosting WWE’S “SummerSlam” on Sunday, Stewart surprised fans by smacking Cena with a steel chair during the wrestler’s bout against Seth Rollins.

As CBS Sports notes, the move helped Rollins retain his World Heavyweight Championship and snag Cena’s United States Championship belt as well.

On Monday, Stewart attempted to explain his chair-wielding aggression. As a wrestling fan, he simply could not bear to see Cena “tie the great Ric Flair … because, in my mind, ‘The Champ is Flair,’” Stewart said. “Not on my watch. Wasn’t going to let it happen.” 

Flair is a retired pro wrestler who clinched a record 16 world titles during his career. Cena is currently looking to tie that record.

Girl Bullied Over ‘Star Wars’ Gets Weird Al On Her Side

A girl bullied for loving “Star Wars” has the Force and Weird Al Yankovic with her.

Layla Murphy, 8, met the parody star at a concert recently after the 501st Legion, a “Star Wars” costume group with a charitable streak, helped her out.  

Layla is yet another young girl who was teased at school for liking Star Wars amongst other "boy" things. As a result of…

Posted by The 501st Legion on Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Girls at Layla’s Norfolk, Virginia, school teased her, saying that “Star Wars” was for boys, CNN reported. She eventually asked her mother if she could stop wearing her “Star Wars” gear, including an R2-D2 jacket.

“She was asked if she was turning into a boy,” her mother, Nicolette Molina, told CNN.

A member of the 501st Legion who had met Layla at a fan convention was told of the kid’s troubles by Molina and summoned the Internet to send Layla support and “Star Wars” souvenirs. It was all to reassure Layla to be herself.

Then the 501st came through with perhaps the coolest gesture of all.

“Taking it one step further, Layla became the next recipient of the custom Stormtrooper armor originally built for another girl (Katie Goldman) who was in a similar situation,” the group wrote on Facebook.

A fully costumed Layla met Yankovic, who apparently mingles with denizens of the galaxy far, far away …

 … and is also known for his “Star Wars” parodies, MTV noted. 

Don’t listen to those bullies, Layla. “Star Wars” can be enjoyed by the entire universe.

Coolest Dad Ever Gets Cochlear Implant Tattoo To Match His Daughter’s Real One

One father found a rad way to stand by his daughter. 

Alistair Campbell‘s 6-year-old daughter, Charlotte, is deaf and recently got a cochlear implant for her right ear, the New Zealand Herald reported. But right before the 6-year-old from Taupo, New Zealand, received the device — her second — Campbell decided to get one as well in a show of solidarity. His, however, came in the form of a tattoo on his head. 

(Story continues below.) 

On Monday, the dedicated dad posted photos of himself sporting his new tattoo on social media — one of which included Charlotte alongside him with her implant for her left ear in plain view. The moving photo generated buzz across the Internet and was picked up by various media outlets.

It’s not difficult to understand why. 

“I shared the photos with my friends and family to see, I never expected this huge response,” Campbell told The Huffington Post. “I’m pleased I have helped to raise awareness for all cochlear implantees.”

Charlotte received her first implant back when she was 4 years old. The tattoo, Campbell says, is all about honoring his beloved daughter through the challenges she’s faced. 

“Charlotte’s journey has been quite a hard journey for her and for us,” the father told Stuff.co.nz. “The tattoo was a tribute — this was all about her, not me.”

The tattoo took about 45 minutes to complete, according to Buzzfeed News. As for the pain, Campbell said it was nothing he couldn’t handle. He’ll be letting his hair grow back, but is planning to shave it off, revealing the tattoo for special occasions or when his daughter requests to see it, the New Zealand Herald reported.

The dad told HuffPost that while his daughter doesn’t quite understand the tattoo as of yet, she will come to appreciate its significance as she gets older. 

Campbell’s support for his daughter doesn’t stop there.

In December, he’ll participate in a charity boxing event to raise money for Hear 4 Kidz Trust, a group that supports kids with hearing loss in Taupo.

Saint Laurent Gets LEED Certification

GREEN SHOPPING: Saint Laurent is keen on reducing its ecological footprint. The French designer label headed by Hedi Slimane scooped up LEED Platinum Certification for three of its global flagships: the Rodeo Drive women’s boutique in Beverly Hills, London’s Old Bond Street store and the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré unit in Paris.
The architectural concept originally designed by Slimane in 2012 is based on low-energy lighting, minimal water consumption and better indoor air quality. To wit: Since its reopening in 2014, the Rodeo Drive venue has decreased its energy consumption by 57 percent via a solar panels installation on the roof of the building.
LEED — Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design — is managed by the U.S. Green Building Council. According to the Saint Laurent, this is the first time a luxury brand has awarded the Council’s highest certification for multiple free-standing stores.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg Gets Rap Tribute In ‘Judges Delight’ Video By Allison Lane

It’s really no secret that Ruth Bader Ginsberg is kind of a badass. Now, her legacy as a Supreme Court Justice is immortalized in an unexpected way — a rap parody of the Sugarhill Gang’s iconic “Rapper’s Delight.”

The video comes from Allison Lane, an actress, writer and filmmaker known for her work with “Criminal Minds” (CBS), “Going Down In LA-LA Land” and the upcoming “Kiss Me, Kill Me.” The hilarious “Judges Delight” tribute to RBG is a feature on Lane’s popular YouTube channel called “See You Next Tuesday.”

“When the SCOTUS Marriage Equality ruling came in on Friday, I was so overcome by emotion,” Lane told The Huffington Post in an email. “It was just so beautiful… this moment of millions of rainbow profiles & #LoveWins and the Rainbow-White House! I saw 2 men in their 80s who finally got married after 54 years together! I saw a toddler jumping for joy when he learned his mommies could finally get married! It felt like a great tide had turned and I was compelled to make a video for my comedy Youtube channel to help celebrate!”

Lane added, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg is actually kind of a bad ass, which is why the internet has termed her the Notorious R.B.G. I thought, what if we have fun with that bad-ass image and make her into a superhero rapper… for real. Then I heard the applesauce that Scalia was spouting in his dissents last week and well, the rap lyrics almost wrote themselves!”

What ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Gets Right About Depression

This post contains spoilers.

When I saw Brook Soso start to fall apart on Season 3 of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, I knew exactly what was happening to her. Her constant feelings of isolation and loneliness; the inescapable fear that no one likes her or cares about her; that desperate look in her eyes crying out for help and attention. I know, because I’ve suffered from depression on and off since I was a child. And I know because, like Soso’s character, I’ve also been locked in an institution and forced to deal with mental illness without the support that I needed.

Before this season, Soso wasn’t a major character on the show. She was portrayed as a fairly one-dimensional, loud-mouthed hippie who no one — including viewers — particularly liked. But Orange is the New Black loves to turn our first impressions on their heads and offer surprising depth to formerly irritating characters.

We soon see that Soso is having trouble fitting in because of her constant need to talk. She’s rejected by people she thought were her friends and gets ignored or teased by the others she reaches out to. Loneliness and depression often go hand-in-hand. For Soto, the unfulfilled need and desire for human connection became so great that it brought on a bout of clinical depression that engulfed everything. The hopelessness of being in prison certainly didn’t help, either.

Seeing Soso curled up in her bed, staring at the wall, reminded me of all the days and nights that I did the same thing. I tried so hard to make friends during the time I spent in a psychiatric hospital when I was 15. I was there because I was suffering from severe clinical depression and suicidal thoughts.

But like Soso, I couldn’t quite connect with the people around me. I got teased constantly and was told by several patients that no one liked me. Even the nurses got tired of my constant crying and sadness. The more I was rejected, the worse I felt, and the less everyone liked and cared about me.

The pain of that kind of rejection, especially by the people you think will understand you, is overwhelming. Depression can take a hold of you, and without the right support, lead to thoughts of suicide. Being trapped in a locked ward, not knowing when you’ll have a life again and when you’ll have opportunities for connection beyond the people locked in there with you, can make it so much worse.

In response to Soso’s admission that she’s feeling depressed, Sam Healy, her prison counselor, tells her: “People aren’t gonna want to be friends with you if you’re moping around because sad people are depressing, right?”

Unfortunately, he does have a point, but that’s not exactly the most helpful thing to tell someone who’s struggling with clinical depression. He then says that the secret to depression is that it’s “all in your head” and sends her off to get a prescription for anti-depressants.

Although Healy seems to genuinely want to help her, his character also genuinely misunderstands how to communicate with someone suffering from depression. Plus, in real life, he’d mostly likely just be doing what he was taught to do. Institutions often don’t have the time or resources to spend on psychological issues that they mistakenly believe can be numbed out or glossed over with medication. And this isn’t a problem unique to prisons. My psychiatric ward psychiatrist treated me the same exact way.

When I was in the psych ward, I wish I’d had someone who understood me like Berdie Rogers, the new counselor in the prison. She advocates for Soso and tells Healy it’s not a good idea to jump right to medication without talking out the problem. When he defends his decision to tell Soso that depression is all in her head, Berdie says: “When someone’s feeling vulnerable, they need their pain acknowledged, not to be made to feel worse by having it.”

Berdie reminds me of the best therapists I’ve had, the ones who didn’t belittle me or my emotions, but made me feel seen and understood. Instead of being dismissive, she’s sympathetic. She gets what depression is and how it feels.

Unfortunately, Healy has it out for Berdie and gets her suspended later in the season. Soso has no one to help her when the depression takes a turn for the worse. She asks Healy for another anti-depressant referral, which in itself is not a bad or weak thing. Anti-depressants can help a lot of people who suffer from clinical depression. I myself took them during my hospital stay and for many years after. But they can’t solve underlying problems, which for Soso is her desperate need for friendship.

Luckily, Soso has someone else looking out for her. Fellow prisoner Poussey Washington is also lonely and unsure of where she belongs. She stands up for Soso after she’s bullied and helps her recover from her failed suicide attempt. In the last episode, Poussey welcomes Soso into her group, and they hold hands.

There’s a glimmer of hope for Soso that maybe she’s found a place to belong and someone who cares about her. I eventually made a couple of friends during my stay in the psych ward. They didn’t turn out to be deep or lasting relationships, but having any kind of social connection is so important, especially to someone with depression. Those moments of connection were what made my depression bearable. They still do.

Orange is the New Black is the first show I’ve ever seen handle depression in a comprehensive, realistic and eye-opening way. The plot slowly develops over the course of the season, allowing viewers to gain a better understanding of the issue instead of cramming it into one episode and reducing it to dramatic effect. It captured the experience of having depression in an institution so beautifully, and for that, I am personally grateful.

Louis C.K. Gets The Best Father’s Day Message From His TV Daughter

If any grumpy, balding, middle-aged dad is going to earn admiration from his kid, it’s going to be Louis C.K.

Hadley Delany, who plays one of the comedian’s daughters on “Louie,” had a Father’s Day message for her show-biz pop. It beats Hallmark treacle any day.

“You taught me the most important rule of all: never, ever get fat,” she says in a Made Man video posted last week.

Later in the clip, she asks, “What other dad would catch their daughter smoking pot and then take her out for burgers? That’s like an irresponsible level of cool.”

Hey, nobody said the guy was Ward Cleaver.

Check out the full video above. And a belated happy Father’s Day to all of you other stand-up dads, even if you don’t do standup.

Taylor Swift Superfan Gets Ultimate Wedding Surprise From T. Swizzle Herself

For Taylor Swift superfan Katy Harris, Friday was a fairytale.

On June 12, Harris and her fiancé Chris got married in a parking lot in front of Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, where Swift was performing that night as part of her 1989 World Tour. Harris shared their wedding plans on Instagram last Tuesday: tie the knot before the show and attend the concert in their wedding attire.

Afterwards, the couple got the ultimate wedding present: a backstage photo op with T. Swizzle herself (!!!).

“In a 24-hour window, I married the love of my life and met my hero,” Harris wrote on Instagram. “If I’m dreaming don’t wake me up.”

According to Just Jared, Swift’s mom found the couple in the crowd after reading about their story on Instagram.

The couple had originally planned to get married on 12/13/14 — Swift’s 25th birthday — but ultimately decided to postpone the nuptials.

Looks like it was well worth the wait!
