People Are Really Breaking a Sweat With the Jokes About Grimes’ Too-Crazy-to-Be-True ‘Training Regimen’

After making headlines last year for beginning a relationship with 48-year-old tech billionaire Elon Musk, Grimes is back in the spotlight for detailing her unique “training regimen” in a recent post on Instagram.

To announce her new campaign with Adidas and Stella McCartney, Grimes took to Instagram on Monday to share the answer she apparently gave when Adidas asked her about her workout routine. Spoiler alert: It includes up to two hours of swordplay a day and experimental eye surgery.

“My training is a 360 approach,” she wrote. “In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks. To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout.”

View this post on Instagram

ADIDAS: Tell us about ur training regimen ? GRIMES: My training is a 360 approach. I first maintain a healthy cellular routine where I maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc. This helps promote ATP and it’s incredibly visceral. From that point I spend 2-4 hours in my deprivation tank, this allows me to “astro-glide” to other dimensions – past, present, and future. In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks. To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout. I then spend 45 minutes stretching before heading into the studio where my mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC’s (which is my preferred range for my blood type). I’ve outfitted my studio with the highest grade of red light. It is pretty much 1000 sqf IR Sauna. Hana then comes over and we do a screaming session for 20-25 minutes while I slow boil the honey tea that maximizes vocal proficiency. I have also eliminated all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression. I go to bed with a humidifier on. #asmc #adidasparley #createdwithadidas #gentrifymordor

A post shared by MISS ANTHROPOCENE (@grimes) on

Lew has previously tweeted about working with Grimes, so that at least checks out. But it was when the Art Angels artist went on to say that she replaced part of her eyeball with plastic to cure seasonal depression that fans began to really question whether or not she was trolling them.

“I have also eliminated all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression,” Grimes wrote.

Could Jack Have Fit on the Titanic Door? Let’s Examine the Modern Cinema Debate of Our Time Through the Years

It’s been more than two decades since James Cameron’s Titanic hit theaters and the love story of Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) took the world by storm. But even 22 years after the movie’s release, audiences are still debating is whether or not Jack could have fit on the door that saved Rose from dying in the icy waters of the northern Atlantic.

As anyone who has seen Titanic knows, the scene in which Jack freezes to death in the ocean after getting Rose safely on top of the door is one of the movie’s saddest. But there are some Titanic fans who feel that that there was plenty of room for Jack to wait to be rescued right alongside Rose.

The question of whether Jack could have fit on the door has sparked an intense debate that continues to this day. During a recent video interview with MTV News to promote his new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, DiCaprio himself was asked to weigh in on the “biggest movie controversy of all time.”

But before we wade into DiCaprio’s response, let’s take a look back at the modern cinema debate of our time through the years.

December 1997: Titanic hits theaters

Audiences first saw how Jack’s death played out and started to wonder if he could have fit on the door and been saved from an untimely end.

April 2012: The Jack and Rose door meme

View post on imgur.com

In a series of photos that went viral, Jack fans demonstrated a number of positions that they believed would have allowed both Jack and Rose to comfortably fit on the floating door.

October 2012: The Mythbusters get involved

After the Jack and Rose door meme brought the debate back into the spotlight, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, the duo behind the Discovery Channel show Mythbusters, decided to use an exact replica of the door from the movie to find out for themselves whether Jack’s death could’ve been prevented. At first, it seemed as though Jack had been right about not being able to fit alongside his lady love. But after Savage suggested that they tie Hyneman’s — a.k.a. Rose’s — life jacket to the bottom of the door to reinforce its buoyancy, they both managed to stay afloat.

October 2017: Neil deGrasse Tyson weighs in

Contrary to what you might except, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s thoughts on the Titanic door scene had nothing to do with the science of the matter. During a 2017 interview with The Huffington Post, deGrasse Tyson revealed that his problem with the scene stemmed from Jack’s half-hearted attempt to get on the door in the first place.

“Whether or not he could’ve been successful, I would’ve tried more than once,” he said. “You try once. ‘Oh, this is not gonna work. I will just freeze to death in the water.’ No, excuse me. No! The survival instinct is way stronger than that in everybody, especially in that character. He’s a survivor, right? He gets through. He gets by.”

November 2017: Doing the math

The Mythbusters may have completed a successful trial run of the life-jacket-under-the-door theory, but it was a trio of Westminster, Australia students who proved the math behind the idea was valid. According to The Advertiser, Abigail Wicks, Christy Zhang, and Julia Damato’s work even earned them the top spot in the Year 10 section of the 2017 National Maths Talent Quest.

“We looked at how buoyant the door would have been, and how that would have changed if there were people on top of that,” Wicks said. “There was a lot of exploring and testing, and we had to fiddle with different buoyancies and look at what materials were realistic for that time.”

January 2017: James Cameron debunks Mythbusters

Despite appearing on the Mythbusters episode in which Hyneman and Savage appeared to prove that it would have been possible for Jack to survive, Titanic director James Cameron later told The Daily Beast that the idea that Jack would’ve been able to succesfully tie a life jacket to the bottom of the door before climbing on top was pure nonsense.

“Look, it’s very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.’ It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want,” he said when asked about the infamous door scene. “So you’re talking about the Mythbusters episode, right? Where they sort of pop the myth? OK, so let’s really play that out: you’re Jack, you’re in water that’s 28 degrees, your brain is starting to get hypothermia. Mythbusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won’t just wash out two minutes later—which means you’re underwater tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that’s going to take you five to 10 minutes, so by the time you come back up you’re already dead. So that wouldn’t work. His best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died. They’re fun guys and I loved doing that show with them, but they’re full of s—t.”

Feb. 2019: James Cameron disses the debate

By the time 2019 rolled around, Cameron was apparently even more over hearing people argue that Jack could’ve fit on the door. During an appearance on the BBC series Movies That Made Me, Cameron told BBC Radio 1 film critic Ali Plumb that the controversy over the door was besides the point.

“I’ve never really seen it as a debate, it’s just stupid,” Cameron said. “There’s no debate. But if you really want to unearth all the dumbass arguments associated with it…I mean, let’s go back to, could Romeo have been smart and not taken the poison? Yes. Could he have decided not to bring his little dagger just in case Juliet might stab herself with it? Yes, absolutely. It sort of misses the point.”

July 2019: DiCaprio has no comment

We asked @LeoDiCaprio if he could have fit on the door at the end of #Titanic, and his #OnceUponATimeInHollywood co-stars @MargotRobbie and Brad Pitt seemed to think so 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/nsOMZpXhFz

— MTV NEWS (@MTVNEWS) July 15, 2019

And now, for DiCaprio’s thoughts on the matter. While chatting with MTV News alongside his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, DiCaprio was asked whether he thought both Jack and Rose could have fit on the door. DiCaprio understandably replied that he had “no comment,” but that didn’t stop Pitt and Robbie from needling him for a real answer.

“Could you, could you have squeezed in there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?” Pitt asked him.

“Did you mention it at the time? Were you like, should we make the door smaller…,” Robbie added.

DiCaprio, for his part, stuck to his guns. “Like I said, I have no comment,” he replied.

Everyone and Their Mother Are Participating in the Endlessly Catchy Stranger Things Neverending Story Challenge

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon are supposed to be rivals battling it out over late night talk show ratings, but something has united them—The Stranger Things-Neverending Story Challenge.

It’s not too much of a Stranger Things 3 spoiler to say that at one point the theme song to the 1980s cult classic filmThe Neverending Story serves as a humorous and semi-critical plot point when it is sung by Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Suzie (Gabriella Pizzolo).

In the wake of the Netflix show’s release, star Millie Bobby Brown dropped her #NeverEndingChallenge on Instagram, asking fans to join in the fun by showing off their dance moves.

On Monday night, Colbert and Fallon took up the gauntlet, recreating the moment to mark the return of both The Tonight Show and The Late Show after their summer breaks. The late night hosts pay faithful tribute to both the original track, performed in the film by British singer Limahl, and The Stranger Things rendition.

They weren’t the only ones to take Brown up on the challenge, though. One member of The Neverending Story’s original cast also played along. Tami Stronach, who played the Childlike Empress in the 1984 film, posted her take on the challenge on Instagram. In the video, Stronach and her dog and two kids perform a routine to the tune, filling the hearts of ’80s kids and new fans everywhere.

Here’s how other fans have been getting in on the fun:

Renegade Penguin Pair With No Respect for Authority Return to Favored Sushi Spot After Initial Removal

You can’t tell penguins that they can’t have something, because it will only make them want it more. And a pair of small mischief-making blue penguins proved exactly that.

A sushi spot in Wellington, New Zealand became the unexpected site of a viral penguin hideout where the two birds recently hid beneath the foot truck near Wellington Railway Station.

They were “flying under the radar” until someone heard them making “cooing, humming sound” which tipped them off, according to local news.

That’s when police stepped in.

“Waddling vagrants were removed from their sushi stand refuge by Constable John Zhu,” the police stated on a Facebook page. After they were taken away, they were released into the harbor.

But that was far from the end of it. The repeat offenders came back. In very loud defiance of police, the penguins were found in the same spot, returning at nighttime. They have since been removed again, according to multiple outlets.

These little blue penguins had to be removed from under a sushi store near the Wgtn railway station, not once – but twice.
The two little kororā showed a complete disregard for police authority after being removed from under a food truck, and returning later in the day. 😍😍 pic.twitter.com/i728NRe0LP

This is the time of year that penguins look for place to lay eggs, which may explain the adventure.

A modest proposal: every major railway station requires a sushi bar, or similar shop, with its own resident blue penguins. https://t.co/X6v4vEgIIr

This Stranger Things Season 3 Line Made Stephen King Fall Out of His Chair Laughing

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Stranger Things season 3.

If you thought the fan favorite of Stranger Things season 3 was Erica Sinclair (Priah Ferguson), then you’re in good company. Stephen King apparently laughed so hard at one of Erica’s perfectly timed one-liners that he fell out of his chair.

The author — whose own work is frequently referenced by showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer — took to Twitter on Sunday to share his reaction to Erica’s on-point summation of Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Steve (Joe Keery) and Robin’s (Maya Hawke) idea to have her crawl through Starcourt Mall’s air vents to infiiltrate the Russians’ storage locker.

“STRANGER THINGS: ‘Commence Operation Child Endangerment.’ I fell off my chair,” he tweeted.

STRANGER THINGS: "Commence Operation Child Endangerment." I fell off my chair.

— Stephen King (@StephenKing) July 14, 2019

Considering the fact that the storage locker ended up being an elevator that trapped the group in a top-secret underground lab complete with a gate to the Upside Down, Erica was exactly right. But hey, not only did everyone in the Scoops Troop end up surviving the season, they also played a critical role in defeating the Mind-Flayer monster. Child endangerment or not, we call that a success.

Lashana Lynch Is Reportedly the Next 007. Here’s How the New James Bond Movie Can Do Right by Her

We may well be getting a female 007. The Daily Mail reports that Lashana Lynch of Captain Marvel fame will take over the codename in the next Bond film, due April 8, 2020.

While Daniel Craig is returning to play James Bond himself, according to this leak, Bond begins the film in retirement and is called back to active duty when a crisis hits. In the M16 office, he meets the new 007 — not the new Bond, but the new holder of that alias — a black woman named Nomi, played by Lynch. Craig has been saying for years that he wants to retire from the Bond role. It’s possible that after the yet-unnamed 25th Bond film, Lynch will take over the franchise for him — or at least star in a spinoff.

There has been much debate over the years as to whether Craig’s successor could be female, or a person of color. Rumors once swirled around Idris Elba as a possible replacement. Executive producer Barbara Broccoli said in an interview last fall that Bond was created male and she intended to keep the character male, while adding more female characters to the story around him.

Lynch’s ascension signals major progress for a franchise that has long felt trapped in the 20th century. Up until this point, the role of the world’s greatest secret agent has been played exclusively by white men. What’s more, James Bond’s sexism, racism and general recklessness have proven impossible to ignore in the year 2019.

But it sounds like in Bond 25, the classic character will have to wrangle with #MeToo. That could be a wonderful update to Bond — or it could place Lynch in a precarious “glass cliff” situation.

Bond has been bedding women and leaving them for dead for over half a century. To take on this role is, by definition, to enter a minefield of problematic behavior. In Craig’s own words, the character has always been “a very lonely, sexist misogynist.” If the new James Bond movie wants to offer a corrective, its creators have an awful lot of work to do.

For decades, Bond was the ultimate male fantasy: Men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him. Or did they? Upon rewatching the movies, it becomes clear that most of Bond’s interactions with women over the years could be classified as assault or even rape. Post-#MeToo, James Bond has become the poster child for the “your problematic fave” meme: We still feel nostalgia for these iconic spy thrillers but struggle with just about every interaction Bond has with a woman.

About a year ago, a video of all of Bond’s misbehaviors went viral. The “sexy playfulness” of many of Bond’s romantic interactions begins with force, blackmail or outright violence. The fact that the women of these early films seem to submit to this brutality — that they even find it sexy — render these scenes even more perverse. For little boys and young men who grew up watching these films, these problematic relationships were presented as not only acceptable but aspirational.

The Daniel Craig-era Bond films have at least acknowledged that Bond’s misogyny is problematic: When Bond first meets Eva Green’s Vesper, she analyzes him: “It wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine you think of women as disposable pleasures rather than meaningful pursuits.” But admitting Bond’s biases and updating Bond for the modern era are not the same.

In fact, the 2006 Casino Royale ultimately amounts to an origin story for Bond’s misogyny: He softens when he falls in love with Vesper, only to be betrayed. As a result, he reverts to his previous state as an emotionless, untrusting killing machine. It’s not just that Bond is bitter toward humanity, but toward women in particular, who, he calculates, make him weak. When M offers time off to process Vesper’s death, he deadpans, “The job is done. The bitch is dead.”

That line is pulled straight from author Ian Fleming’s 1953 story on which the film is based. The setting may be 2006, but Bond is still very much a man of the 1950s. Casino Royale is a brilliant film exactly because it offers the personal backstory to Bond’s misdirected hatred toward women — though the audience shouldn’t take it as a justification for his behavior.

Since then, the franchise has occasionally alighted on the theme, most notably in Skyfall (2012) in which Judi Dench’s M becomes her own hero with an inner life and is rendered as something other than a sex object. Her — spoiler alert — death forces Bond to reckon with at least one woman’s humanity. (Of course, that whole plot is somewhat undercut by a shower scene with a Bond girl that feels oh-so-1960s.)

So finally — finally — the franchise seems ready to reckon with Bond’s misogyny. The new production brought on writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who has emerged as one of the most brilliant feminist voices of our era with her series Fleabag and Killing Eve, to punch up the Bond 25 script. The new leaks from the production suggest it was Waller-Bridge’s idea to introduce Lynch as the new 007 and that the script will explicitly call out Bond for his dinosaur mentality.

The source says Bond is “sexually attracted to the new female 007 [played by Lynch] and tries his usual seduction tricks,” but that he is “baffled when they don’t work.” The insider also says that the term “Bond girls” has been replaced with “Bond women.” (Hooray for small victories!)

“This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,” the insider says. “There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he’s having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo.”

That sounds intriguing. And creating a woman who is her own character — rather than Jane Bond, a woman with the same disturbing characteristics as her male counterpart — is a step in the right direction.

But updating a problematic franchise is a lot harder than creating a new, empowering figure from whole cloth. It would be wonderful to watch a film that reckons with Bond’s misogyny and racism. But it would be tiresome if that film burdens Lynch’s Nomi by requiring her to explain to James Bond why it’s not okay to force women to have sex with you, and leaves little time to develop Nomi as a character independent of this elder statesman of chauvinism.

The James Bond franchise did not begin with an origin story or a sidekick story. We saw James Bond already at his peak, outwitting and outfighting Dr. No and his henchmen. The best we can expect of the new Bond series would be a story in which Lynch’s Nomi is allowed to shine and Daniel Craig thoughtfully and graciously cedes the spotlight.

Here Are the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for Readers

If you’re looking to catch up on summer reading, there are plenty of deals through Amazon’s Prime Day to help keep you busy with books for the rest of the season. Prime Day 2019 began this morning and lasts for a full 48 hours, so Prime Members have until the end of the day Tuesday to stock up on everything from a discounted Audible subscription to a number of popular books available on Kindle. Here, the best deals for readers on Amazon Prime Day 2019.

Audible

For reading on the go, whether on your commute or even through a smart speaker, the audiobook subscription service Audible makes it easy to listen to books. The monthly rate is typically $14.95, but when members sign up on Prime Day they can get Audible for $4.95 a month for the first three months. A subscription includes three titles each month. There are plenty of celebrated audiobooks available through the service, including Michelle Obama’s Becoming, Tara Westover’s Educated and Delia Owens’ Where the Crawdads Sing.

Kindle

Several different models of Amazon’s Kindle are on sale through Amazon Prime Day. For readers looking to take their books to the beach or pool, the Paperwhite is a waterproof eReader that stores between 8GB and 32GB and is discounted starting at $84.99 (originally $129.99). Similarly, the newest model of the basic Kindle is being sold for $59.99, a markdown from $89.99. The purchases of either Kindle come with a $5 eBook credit, which can be used for many books available on Amazon, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Less by Andrew Sean Greer to the bestseller CIRCE by Madeline Miller.

Kindle Unlimited

Another digital subscription service is being offered at a massive discount on Amazon Prime Day. Kindle Unlimited allows readers access to over one million titles on any device through the Kindle App. Prime members can take advantage of a three-month deal for $0.00 that gives them access to magazines as well as several book series like The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. The Kindle Unlimited deal extends beyond Prime Day as members have until July 31 to sign up. After the first three months, Kindle Unlimited renews at $9.99 per month.

Amazon Prime Book Box

There is an opportunity specific to young readers on Prime Day, too. With Amazon Prime Book Box, a box of children’s books — either four board books or two hardcover books — is typically delivered as a set for $19.99. Members are able to choose how often to receive the Book Box (every one, two or three months). There are four different age groups for the boxes and the books inside are always up to 35% off their list price. But on Amazon Prime Day, members new to the subscription service are able to get their first box at a 30% discount for $13.99.

Scarlett Johansson Says Comments on ‘Authentic Casting’ Were Taken Out of Context

Scarlett Johansson says comments she made on the “authentic casting” debate have been taken out of context and asserts that she supports diversity in film.

The actress came under fire in 2017 for playing an Asian character in Ghost in the Shell and canceled plans last year to portray a transgender man in the upcoming film Rub & Tug, after transgender actors and advocates questioned the casting.

In a recent interview with As If magazine, she said actors should be allowed to play any person “because that is my job and the requirement of my job.”

Johansson said Saturday that those comments were subsequently edited in other publications for “clickbait.”

“I personally feel that, in an ideal world, any actor should be able to play anybody and Art, in all forms, should be immune to political correctness,” she said in a statement.

“I recognize that in reality, there is a wide spread discrepancy amongst my industry that favors Caucasian, cisgender actors and that not every actor has been given the same opportunities that I have been privileged to.”

The Woody Harrelson Wimbledon Meme Is Officially the Most Amusing Way to Watch Tennis

Leave it to Woody Harrelson’s face to score a major Wimbledon victory when you least expect it.

Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal clinched the Grand Slam in Men’s doubles on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the internet went wild for something else entirely: Woody Harrelson, the emotive spectator everyone was watching.

Captured by the cameras in his seat in the crowd, the Zombieland star made all of the faces during the heated match that saw Nicolas Mahut take a ball to the face and below the belt. (It happens. It’s tennis!)

Luckily for the folks at home, the TV announcers knew that in Harrelson, they had comedy gold. And the telecast couldn’t stop cutting to him for his reactions.

About those reactions.

Harrelson had many noteworthy moves, including — but not limited to — reacting appropriately to Mahut’s injuries, getting blocked from his seat whilst enjoying a beverage, finally getting the clearance to reclaim his seat, and changing into a purple and green-festooned fedora, licking his mouth, and generally living it up.

The internet was quick to recognize that this was the real game.

In case you missed it, here’s a collection of Woody Harrelson’s Wimbledon memes.
