Cabello nuzzled Mendes’ nose in a way someone might do to their dog, as if to say, “Good job, champ.” Whether or not their romance is legit, they were selling the fantasy. Original Article : HERE …

How ‘BH90210’ paid tribute to Luke Perry

HBO has edited out the infamous ‘Game of Thrones’ coffee cup

Do NOT talk to Daenerys Targaryen until she's had her coffee.Image: courtesy of HBO That coffee cup cameo in Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones is now a relic of the past thanks to a little Hollywood magic.

Before editing out the beverage, HBO released a statement saying that the latte on the table was an error, joking that Daenerys had actually ordered an herbal tea. …

Ubisoft pledges its support to the Notre-Dame Cathedral

Image: Gearbox software The Borderlands 3 reveal on May 1 was almost great, if not for all the drama. It was looking good at first for developer Gearbox Software. Despite the questionable choice to have embattled studio founder and CEO Randy Pitchford serve as the hype man on stage, the game does a fine job of making a case for its own existence. Not that it’s a giant leap forward. This series has been largely dormant for five years. But with all the industry shifts lately toward more fully online “games-as-a-service” (think Destiny), Gearbox’s pitch of “more Borderlands, with cool improvements” is a tantalizing proposition. The new game will stick with the first-person space Diablo vibe that’s defined the series …
