Empire State Building Pays Tribute To Endangered Animals, Remembers Cecil The Lion

Cecil the lion, a majestic black-maned beast who once roamed the woodlands of Zimbabwe’s Hwange, was found dead last month on the outskirts of the national park. He had been killed by an American dentist for tens of thousands of dollars, then skinned and beheaded for a hunting trophy.

Cecil’s death has sparked outrage worldwide, as people everywhere lament the damage that humans continue to inflict on the populations of not just lions, but the planet’s many endangered creatures. On Saturday night, the Empire State Building served as a timely, sky-high reminder of this devastating impact, as images and video of threatened animals were projected onto the façade of the iconic New York City skyscraper.

Cecil was one of the animals featured.

For three hours, “insects, sea creatures, mammals, and birds crawled, swam, and flew over” the Empire State Building “as spectators ‘oohed’ and ‘awed,’” said The Verge. Snow leopards, tigers, lemurs, and manta rays were among the creatures on display.

The spectacle, achieved with the help of 40 projectors, was organized by the Oceanic Preservation Society and the filmmakers of “Racing Extinction,” an upcoming documentary about humans’ impact on threatened species.

“I’m hoping with this film and this event, we can raise awareness and start a movement,” the film’s director Louie Psihoyos (of “The Cove” fame) told The Verge.

NBC New York says the projections were a first for the Empire State Building, which is typically lit up with colors or, on occasion, light shows.

In total, 160 species were featured on the skyscraper. The New York Times says the production cost $ 1 million.

Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith On What Would Have Been His 33rd Birthday

Cory Monteith may be gone, but he’s not forgotten, not by Lea Michele, who is keeping his memory alive on what would have been his 33rd birthday.

On Monday, the former “Glee” actress shared a photo of Monteith sitting behind a drum kit:

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13, 2013, after he overdosed on a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol. The actor, who was 31 at the time, had been dating Michele for more than a year.

Donny Osmond Remembers His Last Conversation With Michael Jackson

In a HuffPost Live interview Wednesday, Donny Osmond looked back on his longtime friendship with the undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

“Back in the early ’70s it was the Jacksons and the Osmonds. It was Michael and Donny. We were kind of, like, parallel,” the 57-year-old singer told host Nancy Redd.

The two came from large families, both born as the seventh children in families of nine. Their mothers’ even share the same birthday, he added.

Osmond recounted one of the many conversations the two had before Jackson’s death in 2009. Their last chat, about a year before Jackson’s death, may have been the most indicative of how the lives of both stars had changed so dramatically throughout the years.

“He said, ‘Please don’t tell anybody, but I rented one of those big custom buses, those touring buses, and I took my kids. We’re hiding in Phoenix right now.’ Hiding from the press because everything had hit the fan,” Osmond said.

Osmond was quick to offer a few words of advice to Jackson.

“And I said, ‘Why don’t you do me a favor, Mike. You’re a nine-hour drive from my home in Utah. Bring your kids. No one will know you’re here. They’ll swim in the swimming pool. Have a little normalcy in your life’,” he said.

But the trip to Utah never panned out.

“And he said, ‘You know what Donny, I think I’m going to do that.’ And he never did,” Osmond said.

Kirsten Gillibrand Remembers The Time She And Connie Britton Drank Toad Venom In China

In what must have been the most fun summer ever, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Connie Britton were roommates during a college program in Beijing while they were both majoring in Asian studies at Dartmouth. During a HuffPost Live interview Monday, Gillibrand shared an incredible anecdote from their trip that just begs for a sitcom adaptation.

It started when Gillibrand, Britton and a few friends went to a Chinese beach, the senator told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani during a chat about her new book Off The Sidelines. The women enjoyed crabs and “great seafood,” which then backfired in a big way:

We got home, we were all so sick. We were just throwing up nonstop, terrible food poisoning. My most vibrant memory is being taken to the hospital on the back of a bike, like, as you’re heaving. Connie was sick, I was sick, and they gave us this vial of black liquid. It was toad venom, and they said, ‘Drink this.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, am I gonna die?’ So we all just looked at each other and drank it and decide, ‘OK, maybe we get better?’

They did get better, and the toad venom episode became just one of the great stories from that summer, which found the now-powerful women camping out on flat cement beds with straw mattresses.

Britton opened up about her friendship with Gillibrand during her own visit to HuffPost Live earlier this month. When the senator saw Britton’s comments, she responded by spotlighting the fine example Britton’s “Friday Night Lights” character Tami Taylor became for women.

“She said, ‘I will only do [the series] if you let me help write this character, and she has to be strong and she has to use her voice and she has to have real opinions,'” Gillibrand said of Britton’s decision to take the role. “Every script she’d get, she’d push back on it, push back on it and make this character into this amazing mom who really made a difference in her community.”
