Doctor Who: ‘The Timeless Children’s’ Game-Changing Ending Explained

Full spoilers follow for the Doctor Who Season 12 finale, “The Timeless Children.”

[poilib element=”accentDivider”]

After weeks of hype, speculation, and plenty of use of terms like “game-changer” and “epic” and “you better prepare yourselves, we’re not kidding,” the oversized Season 12 finale of Doctor Who, “The Timeless Children,” most definitely delivered. It was, without a doubt, one of the most consequential and seismic events in the whole of the show’s 57-year history, cutting deep into the mythological heart of the central character’s origins as well as the foundation for all previous lore ever presented about the Doctor’s home world, Gallifrey, the Time Lords, and much more besides.

At one point, the Master (played with absolutely infectious glee by Sacha Dhawan) revels in, as he puts it, having “broken” the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker, wrapping up her second season in the role) with the knowledge of her true past. Surely the renegade in the dapper purple outfit would have been even more delighted if he had only seen beyond the fourth wall and realized he’d done more than that…

…he’d also broken Doctor Who history wide open, re-energizing (dare I say regenerating?) the show with so much potential for future exploration of these explosive revelations. It will take weeks, months, maybe even years to process everything that this one episode dropped on its viewers, and more stories in the distant future that will alter, augment, or even annihilate what showrunner Chris Chibnall had the audacity to accomplish here. But for now, if you’re like me and reeling (in a good way, make no mistake) from what we just found out, let’s break it down and sort through what we know and what still remains a mystery. And if you’re one of those fans that believes this has fundamentally destroyed Doctor Who or ruined your childhood, it might be worth reminding you that the show you love is and has always been, at its core, about change. And boy, did it change tonight!

In this episode, while the rest of the TARDIS team ally with future humans to fight back a horde of Cyber Warriors and the No-Longer Lone Cyberman (Patrick O’Kane), the Master takes the Doctor on a magical journey into the Matrix, a virtual information storage system still existing in the ruins of the Citadel of the Time Lords on Gallifrey. There the evil renegade reveals that the Doctor actually has a secret past as an extra-dimensional “Timeless Child” brought to Gallifrey by an explorer, Tecteun (Seylan Baxter), that then spent years trying to figure out how the alien being was able to naturally regenerate at death and take many different forms.

Eventually, Tecteun distilled that genetic secret, and the Time Lord society we know was formed; in addition, many unknown incarnations of the Timeless Child/Doctor went to work for the Division, a mysterious Gallifreyan organization that interfered in time while the public Time Lord policy claimed to be one of strict non-intervention. Oh, and the Lone Cyberman has a Death Particle with which he intends to wipe out all organic life, and the Master plots to merge Cyber-technology with dead Time Lord bodies to create a zombie army of Cyber-Time Lords that endlessly regenerate.

Got all that? Good.

The Morbius Doctors and the Celestial Intervention Agency Return

There are a number of deep cuts and direct references to swaths of Who history in this; it could be argued (and I will anyway) that this episode does an amazing job of tying many bits of Who lore together into this one big revelatory story. For one thing, we revisit the Matrix, the Time Lord repository of all knowledge and a sort of alternate universe of its own that the Doctor has been in before, and at the mercy of a previous Master too.

The Division itself, that secret organization created to interfere in history and that apparently employed pre-Hartnell incarnations of the Timeless Child/Doctor, may very well be a predecessor of the CIA…no, not that one, the Celestial Intervention Agency, which previously reared its manipulative head from time to time in the old days. We also learn more about the Shobogans, referred to here as the indigenous lifeform on Gallifrey, but previously referred to in disparaging terms by Time Lords in older stories, and also seen as living a rougher life outside the Citadel. Now we know that some of the Shobogans became the Time Lords, leaving the rest of their kind to suffer single and far less luxurious lifetimes. If there’s one thing that does remain consistent with Who history in this story, by the way, it’s that overall, the Time Lords are jerks.

One of this episode’s most mind-blowing moments of fanwank continuity splicing gone mad – and I love them for it – is that during the Doctor’s attempt to bust out of the Matrix, we glimpse all of the Doctor’s past incarnations…including a few mysterious faces seen only once before in the classic story, “The Brain of Morbius.” Back then, they were seen as part of a mental duel between the Doctor and another renegade Time Lord, and although the production team intended them to be pre-Hartnell Doctors, later fan arguing rationalized them as being other incarnations of Morbius. This episode seems to be suggesting that at long last, the so-called “Morbius Doctors” have now been canonized as originally intended, pre-Hartnell lives of our favorite Time Lord.

The Master

doctor who master

I have to take a break from the bigger mythological stuff to once more heap praise upon Sacha Dhawan for his pitch-perfect performance as the Master, and offer kudos for the script that he was entrusted to bring to life. This episode may have had some of the most emotionally satisfying interactions between the Doctor and the Master we’ve ever seen, resonating powerfully with similar stories that reach back through Michelle Gomez and John Simm’s incarnations all the way to Roger Delgado, and absolutely capturing the mixture of love and hate that drives their eternal feud.

That this relationship has now been augmented by new revelations that essentially let the Master know the Doctor was special, but even worse, the reason for his very existence as a Time Lord, only increases the tragedy and thrill of their endless struggle to be the last renegade standing. Here’s to many more years of these two failing to put it all to rest (and an extra tip of the hat to the Master for once more contriving to create a race with the beautifully designed clockwork-like Cyber-Time Lords; this time, he truly is a Zombie Master!).

Sidenote: While we’re shouting out performances, a brief additional round of applause for the team of Yaz (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole), and Graham (Bradley Walsh), for my money one of the best TARDIS teams in history, but one that has not necessarily been as well served in many stories. This time, however, they all have wonderful moments that highlight how far they’ve come while traveling with the Doctor, emotionally resonant scenes that pay off long-standing character arcs, and it’s a joy knowing we still have them all around for at least one more adventure.

Questions That Still Need Answers in Season 13

While we don’t exactly find out how the Brendan vision from last week fits into all this, we can surmise that it was a cloaked version of events (disguised in that way to hide them in the Matrix) that were happening over and over again for the poor Timeless Child/Doctor as she was mind-wiped and regenerated while serving as an agent of the Division.

We also aren’t certain why Ruth was hiding on Earth as a human, but again, we can suppose that she attempted to escape her work with the Division at one point, only to eventually be recaptured and mind-wiped yet again (she would have to have been, or else we would never get to Hartnell’s Doctor and the history of classic Doctor Who that we already know).

And there are indeed plenty of additional unanswered questions, including where all the other humans escaping from the Cyber Wars went (not, apparently, Gallifrey), how the Boundary works, and of course, where the Timeless Child came from in the first place. But then again, it wasn’t until the end of Patrick Troughton’s run as the Second Doctor that we ever heard the words “Time Lords,” so it takes, well, time. And hey, wait a minute – what was the whole deal with the Kasaavin from the beginning of Season 12? So yes, lots left to explore; here’s hoping we do!

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=doctor-who-the-timeless-children-finale-photos&captions=true”]

What Did “The Timeless Children” Actually Change?

Really? Not much at all in terms of ongoing storytelling and the usual weekly adventures. But it does add so much more mystery and potential storytelling to the Doctor’s past – once again, the Doctor is a strange figure from an unknown distant world with an origin that is lost to history (for now) – but as for who the Doctor is as a person, and her dedication to justice and helping the innocent and traveling with hope, that’s all right where it’s always been. And to be fair, this is not the first time that a grander past has been suggested for the Doctor – everything from the “Cartmel Masterplan” (referring to the show’s script editor from 1987-1989) and the idea of “The Other” in the 1990s New Adventures novels attempted to expand upon the Doctor’s origins.

What’s Next? Revolution of the Daleks and the 60th Anniversary

Well, there is that 60th anniversary looming in 2023, and it’s very likely that Chibnall and Whittaker will be saying farewell at that time. So will we get an epic special that includes ancient Gallifrey, the Division, tons of previously unseen Doctors, and a threat to all of time and space? It’s a distinct possibility.

I can’t wait! Oh, and get ready for the 2020/2021 Christmas or New Year’s special (exact date to be announced), “Revolution of the Daleks,” with the whole fam throwing down against the Doctor’s greatest foes! Here’s what Chibnall has to say about that: “We can’t leave the Doctor there! On that cliffhanger! Well, we did. But rest assured, the Doctor and her friends will be back for a one-off extended special around Christmas and New Year. (I don’t know when they’re going to put it on yet, otherwise we’d tell you!). There will be Daleks. There will be exterminations. Thrills, laughter, tears. You know. The usual. See you at the end of the year.”

As for me, I have to lie down for a while. Whew!

The Witcher: Season 1, Episode 1 – ‘The End’s Beginning’ Review

Anyone who has read Polish fantasy author Andrzej Sapkowski’s plethora of novels, or played through the gargantuan trilogy of CD Projekt Red video games, will know that the world of The Witcher is a sprawling, knotty landscape. It’s a place of conflicting kingdoms, tragic families, and murky politics. To describe the saga’s plot to a newcomer without getting caught up in its many overlapping strands is a difficult task. Smartly circumnavigating this issue, Netflix’s The Witcher show starts small, and exactly where it needs to: with Geralt.

While the first episode of The Witcher – “The End’s Beginning” – has one eye on the larger picture, it is predominantly a small-scale introduction to Henry Cavill’s slayer of beasts, Geralt of Rivia. Stripping the story back to essentials is a sensible choice, and by the episode’s conclusion we have a pretty solid understanding of who he is, what drives him, and where he stands in the greater narrative.

‘The Tuxedo Redefined,’ to Be Presented by NYU Steinhardt’s Costume Studies Program

“The Tuxedo Redefined: Formality, Fluidity and Femininity,” a new exhibition presented by NYU Steinhardt’s Costume Studies program, will be shown at 80 Washington Square East in New York from Jan. 11 to Feb. 5. The show explores how the tuxedo has been incorporated into women’s fashion.
Since the tuxedo was first introduced in the 19th century, it has evolved into the standard for men’s semiformal attire. “The Tuxedo Redefined” explores how women have appropriated the tradition of men’s black-tie attire, and the ways in which the garment has served as a tool for provocation that can reflect transformative notions of gender, class, and sexual identity.
The exhibit features clothing, accessories, photographs and films that demonstrate the reach of the tuxedo. For example, there’s a 1987 Chanel dress by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as fashion advertising and imagery for designer brands such as Yves Saint Laurent,  Gucci and After Six. There also are film clips and photographs featuring Hollywood stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Janelle Monáe.
The exhibit is co-curated by the master’s degree candidates of NYU’s Costume Studies program: Samantha Asam, Benjamin Chait, Lara Damabi, Amanda Driggs, Michael German, H. Colton MacKay, Yaritza Martinez Pule, Ayaka Sano, and Sarah Sebetich, under the

Behind the Seams: Costumes for New York City Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’

What would “The Nutcracker” be without its pink tutus and illustrative sweets? The annual festive production is now under way at New York City Ballet, where it takes a staff of nearly 50 to craft and maintain the hundreds of intricate costumes required for George Balanchine’s holiday-season staple. WWD paid the company’s costume atelier a visit to see how they get it done.
Each year the city ballet’s in-house costume shop sees a mad dash in the lead-up to “The Nutcracker’s” five-week run at Lincoln Center, where the production is staged about 50 times. The task is one of historical reverence, as the company still uses original designs devised in 1954 by Balanchine’s chosen costumer Barbara Karinska, calling for some 150 looks with a cast ranging from ages eight into the mid-40s.
While ballet’s cascade of holiday-treat-inspired characters — hot chocolate, marzipan, candy canes and tea — appear effortless onstage, they require a taskmaster to see that they all get done. Enter Marc Happel, city ballet’s costume director who manages the shop’s tricks of the trade. That light pink tutu skirt? There’s actually “layers of flesh tulle, beige and layers of another pink underneath which gives it more depth,” Happel explained. An

Beyoncé Meets Meghan and Harry at “The Lion King” UK Premiere

It’s been a star-studded weekend of events in the UK with the Wimbledon finals, but perhaps the hottest ticket in town was the London premiere of “The Lion King” on Sunday night.
The hotly-anticipated remake of the blockbuster 1994 Disney animated film, which hits theaters this week, stars Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles Carter, who voice Simba and Nala, respectively. While the presence of Beyoncé on any red carpet is a royal event by Hollywood standards (case in point: when Knowles Carter and daughter Blue Ivy Carter showed up to the film’s Los Angeles premiere in matching custom Alexander McQueen), the addition of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made Sunday night’s premiere a true royal affair.
Beyoncé  and Jay-Z, who actually gave a shoutout to the Duchess displaying a portrait of her behind them in an Instagram post upon receiving their Brit Award in February, met Meghan and Harry for the first time on the red carpet, as seen on this video that’s gone viral.
Knowles Carter wore a custom draped gold gown from Cong Tri, while the Duchess and new mother of baby Archie wore a black A-line Jason Wu dress with a sheer illusion top and sleeves. In the video,

On Shaina Mote’s ‘The Essentials’ Collection

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Shaina Mote is a self-taught fashion designer specializing in timeless, sustainable and wearable essentials for the modern woman’s wardrobe. And today, production of her eponymous label, and Mote herself, remain rooted in the Los Angeles area.
In her latest collection, “The Essentials,” Mote reinvents the best and most seasonless of her first collection, once again, after success in reiterating her bestsellers in 2014 for “The Core Collection.” The label launched in 2012 and is sold internationally — within select boutiques including Barneys Japan, Moda Operandi, Totokaelo, The Dreslyn and Mohawk General Store.

The Essentials Collection from Shaina Mote is a study in the new uniform.

She calls this year’s collection a “new and improved take” on the Core Collection, including new styles and a mix of her longtime favorite pieces, (including the tie dress, which has been her best-selling piece for eight years, as well as the genesis of this latest collection).
Beginning her career in fashion as a buyer for a trend-driven, fast-fashion company, Mote found the grass is “greener” on the other side. She developed a strong perspective, and was determined to account for the people, processes and textiles embedded into her work, and ensure

‘The Big Hurt’ Joining MVP Collections as Partner

Two years after launching, MVP Collections, a men’s big and tall brand founded by former Major League Baseball All-Star Mo Vaughn, has brought on a partner to expand the company’s visibility and reach.
Frank Thomas, “The Big Hurt,” a two-time MVP and MLB Hall of Famer, has joined the brand and will front four capsule collections that will launch for fall.
Thomas, an analyst for Fox Sports who is also on the broadcast team for NBC Sports Chicago, will become the brand’s third partner, along with Vaughn and Diane Cutuli-Bennett, a former Kellwood executive.
In an interview with WWD, Vaughn said he and Thomas have been friends since their college playing days and developed a mutual respect after being pitted against each other for decades. “He’s a professional and a great representative for our team,” Vaughn said. “Plus, he’s the customer.”
Thomas, who said he’s 6-feet 5-inches and nearly 300 pounds, said he saw the MVP Collections line in a DXL store in 2017 and was immediately drawn to it. “The clothes are hot and fashionable,” he said, adding, “no one takes care of the big guy. I’ve always loved fashion and this is right up my alley.”

Here’s How Jed Bartlet’s Administration Vetted Refugees On ‘The West Wing’

The debate taking place about Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris attacks — over whether to halt refugee resettlement or, as some GOP presidential candidates suggested this week, to only allow “proven” Christian Syrians into the U.S.  – actually took place years ago in a fictional White House.

In Season 2 of NBC’s popular show “The West Wing,” President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet’s administration is faced with the question of what to do with a group of Christians who left China in hopes of attaining refugee status in the United States. 

As one the president’s aides, Josh Lyman, points out, one challenge is that refugees may ”feign faith” to prove that they are being oppressed for their religious beliefs. It is at that point that the president proposes sitting down personally with one of the Chinese refugees to gauge the veracity of his Christian faith — and is pleasantly rewarded by the outcome.

It’s not identical to today’s debate, but the comparison is one that “West Wing” fans will surely appreciate.

Sheldon And Amy Are Finally Doing ‘It’ On ‘The Big Bang Theory’

Amy and Sheldon are about to prove why they call it “The Big Bang Theory.”

After years of dating, our favorite “Big Bang” couple is finally going to consummate their relationship, aka engage in coitus, aka go “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” aka “The Force Awakens,” aka it’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” In other words, they’re having sex.

Entertainment Weekly reports it’s all going down in the show’s Dec. 17 episode. The show taped the moment on Nov. 17, and the producer wanted to issue a statement on it before the news leaked.

Executive producer Steve Molaro said, “After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship, and we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes,” according to Variety.

The announcement leaves us with a lot of unknowns. Mostly, uh … how? Amy broke Sheldon’s heart in the Season 8 finale, telling him she wanted a break. Does this mean the couple is getting back together? Is this a one-time thing? And this is Sheldon Cooper, remember. Uh … how?

In the original pilot for the show, Sheldon’s character supposedly did reveal he’s had sex before, and you can still find some clips online, but that script went through major changes. The Sheldon we know and love has always been pretty romantically inept. It was years before he even kissed Amy on the show. So coitus would be to go where no Sheldon Cooper has gone before.

The Most Beloved Quotes from ‘The Princess Bride’ on its 28th Anniversary

On October 9, 1987, The Princess Bride debuted in theaters. Legendary scribe William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Marathon Man, All the President’s Men) adapted the screenplay from his novel of the same name.

It would take 14 years for the book to became a movie, but it was well worth the wait. Part comedy, part adventure, part fairy tale, part love story, director Rob Reiner assembled a dream team cast which included Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin, Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Carol Kane, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, Mel Smith and André the Giant.

Beloved by millions of fans (which includes Bill Clinton and and the late Pope John Paul II), the American Film Institute ranks The Princess Bride in the top 100 Greatest Love Stories. And the Writers Guild of America says that Goldman’s script is one of greatest 100 screenplays of all time. Many people can quote every last line. And Cary Elwes who played the dashing Westley wrote a revealing account of the making of the film in his book, As You Wish.

On the 28th anniversary of The Princess Bride‘s release celebrate with some deliciously quotable lines from the film. Besides, one can never geek out too much over this gem of a movie. Click to this Parade.com story to read them all.

How Scotch, Weed and ‘The Big Electron’ Conspired to Make George Carlin My Dad

Excerpted from ‘A Carlin Home Companion.’

***

Carlin legend holds that all it took for me to come into the world was a little sperm, a little egg, a little weed, a little scotch, and something called the limbo.

“We’d been trying to get pregnant for months, but no luck,” explained my mom to me, seven-year-old Kelly, as I sat on the bed watching my dad pack for the road.

Just moments earlier he’d said to me, “When I’m down in New Orleans, I’ll get a postcard from the hotel you were conceived in and send it to you.”

Confused by the word “conceived,” I looked at my mom, and she quickly filled in the details. “We were down in New Orleans, must’ve been what, October of ’62? We were at a club hanging out with some musicians we’d met, when someone announced a limbo contest. Well, it sounded like fun, and so I did it. Next thing I knew, I was pregnant.”

Mom didn’t mention the weed or scotch in her telling of my fateful beginning because she didn’t need to. They were a given. Dad had been smoking weed and drinking beer since he was fourteen, and Mom started sneaking sips off her daddy’s drinks at around the same age. And as far as the limbo goes, I’m still not clear about the mechanics of it all, but that’s never mattered. It clearly worked. I am here.

2015-09-16-1442410472-380130-01BGeorgeandBrendaWedding.jpg

For the two years leading up to the night of the limbo, my mom, Brenda, and my dad, George, had been constant companions, starving artists, and comrades-in-arms, chasing my dad’s comedy dreams. They did hell gigs, packed and unpacked their suitcases hundreds of times, and traveled to almost every state in the country in their ’57 Dodge Dart. My mom loved playing the role of on-the-road partner in crime to my dad’s rebel artist on a mission. She was Dad’s lover, party girl, and press agent all rolled into one — his full partner in life — and always his best audience. You could always hear her great laugh above the din of clinking glasses and mumbling patrons in every club they visited.

Because Dad was a complete unknown, on some nights she was the only person in the audience.

One night in Baltimore, no one was in the audience, not even Mom. Dad asked the club owner, “So exactly why am I going on?” “Cuz if people come in, I want them to know we gots some entertainment,” he was told.

I hear Dad killed that night.

During those lean years, Dad paid his dues but also got lucky. One night Lenny Bruce caught his act in Chicago, loved what he saw, and introduced him to his manager, Murray Becker. This was huge. My dad worshipped Lenny.

Taking every opportunity to soak up Lenny’s presence, my mom and dad would often drive from New York to the Gate of Horn Club in Chicago, just to see him perform. One night while they were there, Lenny got arrested halfway through his set. This had become the norm. That night the cops did not like his use of the word “cock-sucker.” Looking to hassle the club, the cops began to ask everyone for their IDs. When they got to my dad, he defiantly told them, “I don’t believe in ‘identification,'” and the cops promptly threw him into the back of the paddy wagon with Lenny. When my dad proudly told Lenny what he’d done, Lenny looked at him and said, “What are you, a schmuck?”

My mom chased after their paddy wagon — on foot — all the way to the police station and bailed them both out of jail that night.

2015-09-16-1442410369-8025107-02AGeorgeandBrendapartylife.jpg

Growing up surrounded by stories like these, and living through many others myself, I’ve always felt as if my family’s journey has un-folded like some kind of mythological legend. Our lives together have felt shaped by a force, threads of fate, or maybe even what my dad called the “Big Electron.” Something was calling us forth, and interweaving exactly the right people, places, and things to form one amazing life together.

2015-09-16-1442410604-165420-03Bphotobooth.jpeg

It’s just always seemed so destined.

My dad should never, ever have come to be.

In 1936, a year before he was born, his parents, Mary and Patrick Carlin, had separated. Not for the first time, but for the fourth. Patrick, as my dad would say, “couldn’t metabolize the ethyl alcohol,” which meant he was a mean drunk. No longer able to take the verbal and physical abuse he doled out to her or their four-year-old son, also named Patrick (who the fuck hits a child across the face with a slipper?), Mary left him for what she wanted to believe was the last time.

But Mary could never stay away for too long. When Patrick wasn’t drinking and raging, he was witty, handsome, and one of the top national salesmen of ad space for the biggest newspapers in the country. He had the Irish gift of gab and had even won a national Dale Carnegie speech contest. He was funny, smart, and charming — and irresistible. So irresistible that once again in the summer of 1936 Mary found herself in bed with him, at a motel in Rockaway Beach.

Six weeks later, at the age of forty, Mary realized she was pregnant.

She knew she didn’t want to bring another child into this already complicated situation, so she decided the best thing to do was to get rid of it.

But that “Big Electron” had different plans. While Mary sat in the waiting room of “Dr. Sunshine,” the Gramercy Park gynecologist who took care of such things for most ladies of import in New York City, she looked up at a picture of the Virgin Mary hanging on the wall and saw her own dead mother’s face. A good Catholic, she knew a sign when she saw one. She promptly stood up and declared to Patrick, “I am keeping this child.”

On May 12, 1937, George Denis Patrick Carlin was born. Eight weeks later, after months of trying to make the marriage work, Mary sneaked out the fire escape in the middle of the night with her two young boys, leaving Patrick Carlin and his rage for good. She’d seen the damage that her husband had already done to little Patrick, and she was not going to let sweet George be another victim.

This time it stuck. Even though Patrick tried to woo her back, she held strong. George never saw his dad again. In 1945 his father died of a massive heart attack at the age of fifty-seven. My dad was eight years old.

Without a man around to keep my dad out of trouble on the streets of the Upper West Side of Manhattan (or what he and his friends liked to call Irish Harlem), Mary took her job as both mother and father very seriously. She looked for ways to shape and control young George’s mind and life. She succeeded in only one area — a love of language and words.

Mary encouraged my dad to look up words he didn’t know in the dictionary, and then use them in conversation. One morning young George, wanting to show off a new word he had learned, excitedly asked his mother if she had “perused” the paper that morning. He anticipated her approval. Slowly she turned, sharpened her gaze onto him, and said, “I have not. Actually, I’ve only given it a cursory glance.” George, chagrined, turned around and marched right back to the dictionary to learn the new word, “cursory.”

5 Reasons To Stop Pointing Your Pitchforks At ‘The Fat Jew’

The Fat Jew, aka Instagram star Josh Ostrovsky, has had a rough week. Accused by an ever-growing number of comedians and Internet creatives for stealing their work, he’s been called a Bogartist, a “hacky joke thief,” and “pure trash,” among other, less kind terms. Until now, he hasn’t said much of anything in his own defense.

In an interview with Vulture, we learned how he runs his 5.7-million-follower operation, and why he doesn’t consider himself a thief. 

Here’s why The Fat Jew thinks you should change your mind about him.

1. He knows why everyone is mad.

“I get it: I should have been providing attribution for all posts,” he told Vulture’s Jesse David Fox. “I now realize that if I couldn’t find a source for something, I probably shouldn’t have posted it in the first place.” 

2. He’s trying to add image credits, and correct misleading ones.

He’s got over 3,200 posts on Instagram as of this writing, the majority of which aren’t credited. “My email address is up. I urge people to reach out and say, ‘That’s my thing.’ I would love to give credit,” Ostrovsky said. Recalling the moment comedian Davon Magwood — who’s been vocal in the debate over crediting – contacted him, Ostrovsky explained:

“He reached out and was like, ‘Dude,’ and I was like, ‘Dude,’ and gave him credit.”

If he can’t figure out who created something, he assured Fox he’d take those photos down. Or one of his interns would — apparently he’s got “an army” of them “working out of the back of a nail salon in Queens.”

3. He doesn’t consider himself a comedian.

“I come from a writing background. That was my genesis,” Ostrovsky stated, adding later on that he’s consistently maintained himself to be “a commentator,” “a curator,” or a “performance artist.” 


It was never my intention for anyone to think all of this was mine. I want people to shine. I like when like some Monster Energy-wearing weirdo emails me and says, ‘You put up my tweet, now I’m the most popular kid in my school.’ That’s amazing, that’s what I’m going for.

 

4. He wants to be “a trusted voice of pop culture.”

While he has created his own content — be it a video of himself teaching a spin class for the homeless, or “sitting in hot tubs of guacamole” — Ostrovsky hopes people see him as a guy who sometimes makes funny stuff, and sometimes just comments on it. 

“It’s about shining light on things that are chill and taking a piss on things that are ridiculous,” he told Fox. In addition, Ostrovsky vehemently denies ever cropping out credit information on any of his posts himself, or knowingly stealing a joke.

“That’s not who I am or what I’m about.”

5. He understands how the Internet — and his own attitude — has changed since “The Fat Jew” got started.

Fox brought up a 2009 incident in which Ostrovsky publicly gave out comedian David Cross’ phone number — a huge no-no. These days, he’d never consider pulling the same stunt.

“I realize my voice has power, and I want to use it in a responsible way that everybody feels good about,” he explained, adding that “social change” stuff isn’t normally his speed.

“Taking this seriously is definitely a different perspective for me … If this situation is a part of Internet history, I just want to make sure that in 10 years, I’m on the right side of it,” he said.

To read the whole interview — it’s worth it – head to Vulture.

This Theory Perfectly Explains Why ‘The Hobbit’ Movies Were So Bad

Look, some of us liked “The Hobbit” trilogy. They’re not the perfect movies, but it’s a perfect adventure. Oh, and there’s a dragon who’s a total baller.

Other people, however, didn’t really appreciate the films. In fact, they really hated them.

And that’s how frenemies are made.

The criticism has been that the movies were overly exaggerated, there was too much CGI and it didn’t need to be stretched into a trilogy. Now, a fan theory suggests the films were actually meant to be a little ridiculous and needlessly drawn out.

The Theory: “The Hobbit” films were bloated with CGI and long-winded because they represent Bilbo’s own exaggerated retellings of his adventure.

Redditor Questionbdp posed the idea as “internal justification” for why the movies were a “disappointment,” and it actually makes sense. The Redditor explains:


What Bilbo actually experienced during his adventure with the Dwarves was probably far less significant and monumental than the movies make it out to be, because the movies show how Bilbo retells his adventures, not how he actually lived them.

The theory goes on to say Bilbo probably felt bummed after he returned from his adventure to find all the other Hobbits didn’t care and were selling off all his stuff. (You nasty Hobbitses!) Because of this, he makes his story larger than life and “events which only filled a small book turned into three separate movies.”

Commenters called the theory “brilliant,” and one even joked, “Lol, Peter Jackson, is that you?”

Speaking of Jackson, even he says “The Hobbit” movies were meant to be a different tone than “Lord of the Rings,” but could this be the reason why?

In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s original stories, Bilbo authors his own memoir, There and Back Again, so it’s entirely possible that he embellished a bit. The dude was pretty good at making stuff up when explaining how he escaped the Goblin tunnels to his Dwarf bros, after all. And how else would you explain Legolas running up a crumbling tower?

Image: YouTube/MakeAGif

Ugh … #SMH.

Jackson said he doesn’t have regrets when it comes to the films, so we’re thinking he either completely missed that Legolas scene, or perhaps there’s a bigger plan at work.

Please let there be a bigger plan at work.

Taylor Schilling’s ‘The Overnight’ Is The Refreshing Sex Comedy We Need

Take an anxious Seattle couple, drop them in a hipster-centric Los Angeles neighborhood for a night of alcohol, weed and some possible swinging, and you’re left with one bizarre, yet charming hangover. That’s essentially what “The Overnight” is, the new sex comedy from writer-director Patrick Brice that finds Taylor Schilling and Adam Scott’s married couple caught up in a night of absurd, hilarious and revealing situations.

While taking their son to play in a local park, Schilling’s Emily and Scott’s Alex meet Jason Schwartzman’s Kurt, your typical Silver Lake hipster artist. After inviting the couple over to his and his wife’s (Judith Godrèche) swanky home for their kids’ playdate, Emily and Alex are sucked into an all-night escapade that features everything from homemade porn videos to butthole paintings to full-frontal male nudity (yes, Scott and Schwartzman both flaunt prosthetic penises in the film). What could easily succumb to a cliché raunchy sex comedy dependent on puerile jokes soon flourishes into one of the most refreshing adult comedies in recent memory. 

After “The Overnight” screened at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, The Huffington Post sat down with stars Schilling and Godrèche to talk about filming the movie in less than two weeks and getting very up close and personal with each other.

There’s a really refreshing sense of humor to this film that makes it so charming. Was that something that drew both of you to the project?

Judith Godrèche: I read it and it was the funniest thing I ever read. I did a lot of comedies in France and thought, “Wow, if everything was as funny and well written as that, I’d be working nonstop.”

Taylor Schilling: Mark Duplass brought the movie to me. I read the script and it was a nutty script. […] The raunchiness and rawness in the script, sort of taking that to a really honest and gritty sensibility and seeing how to braid those two things together. There’s also a real kindness to the film that makes it funnier. I think in a lot of comedies, like situational comedies, the humor is very reactionary, and this is more based in emotional situations that I think make it so funny. 

How did you avoid playing into the usual tropes of the sex-comedy genre?

Schilling: For me that was so much in the direction. That wasn’t the culture on the set.

Godrèche: There was an ambiance. We all signed to do this indie film which was almost like a first film. So there was something special going on already, no rehearsal, no fittings.  […] I think [Brice] likes actors who are funny, but in a subtle way. As far as Adam [Scott] can go, he’s a super funny actor, he’s a very internal actor too. It’s almost contemplative in a way. There are super funny lines, but they are delicate at the same time. It’s so well written, it’s hard to make it goofy. It’s the awkwardness that is so well done. It’s not vulgar. It’s sexy, but it’s awkward.

Both of your characters get progressively drunker and more stoned throughout the movie. What was it like to act out those different stages of being increasingly intoxicated? 

Schilling: I think because we were doing it in order, it was kind of brilliant. Our call time was like 6:00 p.m. and the wrap would be around 7:00 a.m.

Godrèche: We would get stoned just by being tired. 

The chemistry between all four of you is so magnetic. Did you spend a lot of time together before shooting?

Schilling: I had lunch with Adam and we had a group dinner. I think sometimes chemistry just appears. It’s something really wonderful in a cast. It either kind of emerges or it doesn’t.

Godrèche: I remember it as a dream honestly. I was so tired. Everything is like that to me, including the last scene which was really like — I was like, “I don’t know who I am anymore and I don’t care!” I was really taken by the moment in a very interesting way. I think this movie is so open-minded. It doesn’t tell exactly who you are at this moment in your life and maybe you don’t know either, and I kind of felt this.

Without spoiling anything, the last major scene with all four of you features some very bold sexual innuendos. By the time you filmed it were you all very comfortable together?

Schilling: We shot the whole thing in 11 days. That last scene — Patrick [Brice] and I talked [about how] that scene might not even exist. We shot sequentially then we’d watch and see if that actually existed in the dynamic of the characters.

That’s interesting because while watching it, it doesn’t feel like that scene will actually happen, but it plays very organically.

Godrèche: And it’s not like it’s announced, like “Here’s the big scene!” It comes so subtly and I think it’s charming, because the way it happens is pretty magical. I think [Patrick] is amazing and he has a way of capturing — he’s always dancing with us, the camera’s movement was always moving with us. It’s romantic, actually. When I see that scene, I feel like I’m watching a romantic movie.

“The Overnight” is now playing.

Yep. Slayed.

Hudson also showcased her vocal prowess in the 2009 film “Nine,” in which she sang “Cinema Italiano.” The actress also sang when she guest starred on “Glee” in 2012 and 2013.

Going Head-to-Head With Your Inner Enemy: Using ‘The Tools’ to Unlock Your Full Potential

2015-07-01-1435779923-4689171-stutz_p_michels_b_web_0.jpg

Therapists Barry Michels and Phil Stutz are creators of “the Tools,” a set of practices to help you move past self-limiting behaviors and transform challenges into opportunities. Here’s how the Tools can help with that part of you–often referred to as the saboteur, the shadow, or your inner enemy–that Michels and Stutz call Part X.

Omega: You describe how people can use the Tools to do battle with Part X, also known as their inner enemy. Does there come a time in using the Tools where it feels less like a battle and more peaceful?

Phil: I have a saying that peace is an active state of mind. We’re trying to combine the sense of peace with the necessity for constant work. Peace was often defined as something languid and laid back, a state where you can fold your tent up, stop making an effort, and stop being vigilant. That’s not what peace is.

The only infinite thing about a human being is their ability to keep on struggling with no end point. If you’re willing to do that, you’ve tapped into an infinite part of yourself that can then connect to the infinite forces in the universe, and that is peace. As far as I’m concerned that’s the only peace. That’s why I say peace is an active state of mind.

Barry: I like to illustrate this with a triangle. The lower part of the triangle is an eternal battle between you and this inner saboteur. If you engage in the struggle and keep fighting it, what happens is the top of the triangle emerges and at the top of the triangle is your higher self. It’s a part of you that transcends the lower level and can view the struggle from a higher perspective and be at peace with it. These two levels happen simultaneously, the struggle and feeling integrated and completely at peace.

Omega: How can you be sure Part X hasn’t taken over the Tools and is using them for its own end, like posing as your Inner Authority?

Barry: Part X doesn’t want you to use tools at all. Its first strategy is to get you to forget them entirely. In my case, I was always amazed at how I could work all day with patients, exhorting them to use the tools, and then somehow “forget” to use them when I went home at night.

Once you come up with ways to remind yourself to use the tools, Part X still discourages you from using them. When you use them and you get a good outcome, it suggests you no longer need them. When you experience a failure or setback, it tells you they didn’t “work,” so there’s no point in using them.

If all else fails, it likes to pose as a powerful inner authority who knows you better than you know yourself. If you study it carefully, you’ll notice it uses a harsh, finger-pointing, punitive, judgmental tone. When we work with people, we try to shift that tone to one that is supportive of every effort you make — whether you succeed or fail.

Phil: If the voice inside you is telling you to quit, it’s almost definitely Part X. It’s either going to tell you that you don’t need to do it anymore, that you’ve got this solved, or you don’t have to make anymore effort because you or the situation is hopeless and helpless, so why bother.

Omega: Is it easy to learn how to use the Tools if you’re not used to being self-reflective or self-aware?

Phil: I try to focus on what someone wants to change and just bang on that over and over again. I try to give as little theory as I can and instead give them tasks that include what I like to call student study — I ask them to study themselves. I also get people to draw pictures. When I ask people to draw a picture of Part X, no one has ever said, “What the hell is that?”

Omega: What’s the biggest thing to watch out for with Part X?

Phil: There seem to be three basic rules in the universe: part of life is pain; part of life is uncertainty; and part of life is endless work. And none of these ever go away. What we see in almost everyone is the idea of a realm of illusion where you will be exonerated, or exempt from these three rules of the universe. I call this the “snapshot realm,” because we have a picture of this perfect place in our mind, but this place doesn’t exist. Part X wants you to believe that this illusory realm is real, and once it does it can pretty much have its way with you because it’s making you a false promise.

Barry: An example of the realm of illusion might be romantic relationships. Most young people go into romantic relationships expecting to walk hand-in-hand into the sunset with the music swelling. People expect this moment to last forever. But that’s Part X’s demonic way of inflating someone’s expectations to a point where they will inevitably be crushed. It’s like commercials for exercise equipment that tell you you’re going to lose weight just by buying a treadmill but don’t mention that you’re going to have to get yourself to use the treadmill. The Tools will get you to use the treadmill.

How Do You Know When a Beauty Product Is ‘the One’?

By Jean Godfrey June

Both the dazzling appeal and the sinking horror of being a beauty editor is that a flood of shiny new products wash over your desk each day, free of charge. Your job is to try and try and try them — forever in search of something better. Even if you start to fall for something, fidelity is a sort of death, in terms of constantly coming up with new things to recommend to your readers. But in spite of it all, you still somehow manage to find the Infallible, the Kryptonite, the Desert-Island-Can’t-Live-Without, the One, the Undying.

Many of the items in my makeup bag have been there, faithfully replenished, for at least a decade: Secret Weapon hair cream from John Frieda, Secret Concealer from Laura Mercier (I know, so many secrets), Extra SPF 25 Tinted Balm from Bobbi Brown, YSL’s Volupté Sheer Candy Glossy Balm (the name has lengthened over the years, but the gorgeousness has in no way abated), Skin Food by Weleda.

How did they get to (and maintain) their Significant Other status?

As in love, there’s the slow-burn route: In the dead-middle-utter-misery of the last recession, I heard about this shampoo called Russian Amber from Philip B. It came in a tub and smelled like fantastic, exotic honey mixed with an oud-inflected perfume … and it cost $ 140. I didn’t even bother trying it — I figured the only people even remotely pleased to hear about such a thing were the mostly male-patterned-bald bankers who’d just plunged the world into economic disaster and gotten away with it; even if some of them did have hair, I was in no mood to make a single one of them happy.

But my friend with flat, unvolumizable hair started exclaiming over it, exclaiming and exclaiming and exclaiming anew. Then another friend with overcolored, slightly frizzy hair started raving, too — her daughter chimed in: “Mommy’s hair is finally smooth and pretty.” My hair is sort of normal, but I had to try it. And: It made my hair — better. A touch of volume, a touch of smoothness, some shine … However ineffable its effects, I’d be standing in the shower and I’d think, Well, do I NEED to look especially good today? If the answer was yes, I went with the Russian Amber.

This is how you know. If you have to have it on the day you need to look better than you do on all the other days (and are willing to fork over the billions it costs) it’s the One, for sure.

Desperation, then, is the ultimate test. If I must have fantastic skin on a particular morning, I put Prevage Night from Elizabeth Arden on the night before; I only use it rarely, lest the magical effect (glowier, smoother, mystically dewy-fresh skin, reportedly powered by proprietary antioxidants in the formula) fade. Not that I haven’t tried every supposed skin miracle that’s come along; it’s just the Prevage — also in Philip B price territory, at $ 136, though you go through it less quickly — is always better.

I also believe in love at first sight. The minute I applied the YSL Sheer Candy in Pomegranate — it looks like a chic French lipstick in the vein of Catherine Deneuve, but is inexplicably both transparent and intensely pigmented so it brightens anyone’s entire face, without looking like … lipstick — I knew it was a forever thing. Every so often I force myself to try something that vaguely resembles it, and it’s never as good.

And sometimes the romance is based on the irrefutable evidence that it’s just plain good for you: Even though I have breakout-prone skin, I threw some serious fuel on the face-oil fire in its early days. The Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil convinced me that oils could actually benefit the greasy-complected; I tried every oil I could find, when one day I happened upon Intelligent Nutrients (the all-organic line from Aveda-founder Horst Rechelbacher) Oil Serum. Not only did it make my skin look and feel better, I somehow developed the practice of dabbing a bit of it on over my makeup whenever I looked tired before going out, instead of adding more makeup. I liked it, but it was only when I gave some to a friend recovering from a botched Mohs surgery on her face — she’d been told there was no way she’d escape a major scar — and it utterly obliterated any sign of surgery whatsoever that I fell fully and irreparably in love. Since then, the world has embraced the face oil, but still, there is only one for me.

Once you find it — after swiping your way through the beauty aisles, experimenting furiously, staying open, and perhaps risking your rent check for it — true love is the greatest. It’s that confidence-a-bottle you’ve been searching for, that dream you thought never really existed.

So, can you live without it? It’s not the One. Keep looking.

Kittens Make Epic Fight Scene From ‘The Lion King’ So Much Better

Question: How do you improve on an epic scene from a classic Disney movie?

Answer: Swap out the animated characters for live kittens. Keep all the action the same, just with kittens.

Here’s an example, using the climactic fight scene from “The Lion King.”

Grown-up Simba? Bam! He’s a kitten now. Scar? DONE. Kitten-ized.

We can’t imagine how long it took for YouTuber Pasdidée to wrestle his actors into line, but it’s truly a work of art.

It is not, however, the only time someone recreated “The Lion King” with kittens.
