Arrow's Canary Trilogy Will Have "A Payoff" At the End


Though Arrow's upcoming episode, "Canaries," won't air until February 2015, Showrunner Marc Guggenheim is already hyping it as a can’t-miss episode.

"Canaries" will turn the clock back to Season Three’s premiere, according to Guggenheim, and will feature the return of Caity Lotz as Canary and Peter Stormare as Count Vertigo. As fans might recall, The Count was that episode’s main villain, and almost succeeded in killing a Vertigo-drugged Arrow before Canary saved the Emerald Archer at the last second. It was only a few moments after that confrontation that Oliver Queen’s sister, Thea, killed Laurel.

However, those final scenes may have contained more than what met the eye, Guggenheim explained to TVLine. When "Canaries" revisits those moments, many aspects of Canary’s saga throughout Arrow, and more, will be brought “full circle.”

“It’s an episode where a lot of things that we’ve been doing and setting up during the season really sort of come together,” he said. “It’s not a ‘climactic’ kind of episode, but there’s a feeling of a big payoff by the end of it.”

Big payoff, eh? Perhaps this will be the episode, and not "The Return," where Oliver Queen makes his triumphant return to Starling City as Arrow. Based on Guggenheim’s comments, it sound like Arrow could return in “Canaries’” final scene, ending the episode on a cliffhanger. Then, “The Return,” which is the season’s following episode, would delve deeper into how Oliver Queen cheated death.

Either way, we’ll know more for certain when Arrow returns to the CW on January 21, 2015, at 8:00 p.m.

American Horror Story: Freak Show Sees Dandy Go on a Rampage!




American Horror Story: Freak Show is almost finished. There is only two episodes left in this series, and many people are getting excited about what will happen in the upcoming 10th episode. The ninth episode of Freak Show saw the aftermath of Dandy killing his mother. He goes to see Esmerelda, and Maggie tells Dandy not to worry about his future.

She says that there may be some bumps in the road, but added that he will get around them easily. Dandy runs into Jimmy after leaving the fortune teller, and swears to have vengeance on Jimmy because Jimmy took the twins away from him. The twins are brought to the farmhouse and the Doctor was going to perform surgery on them, but the sisters decide not to get the surgery after talking about it some more.

Dell tries to hang himself because he is guilty about his sexuality and killing Ma Petite, but Desiree saves him. Jimmy is supposed to perform at a Tupperware party for housewives, but is too drunk and leaves the party. Dandy shows up at the same party, and kills all of the housewives, leaving them to float in a pool. Regina confronts Dandy, and Dandy openly admits that he’s been murdering a lot of people, so Regina goes to get Detective Colquitt. Dandy says that he’ll pay the detective a million dollars if he shoots Regina, so he does. The episode ends with Detective Colquitt arresting Jimmy for murdering the women at the Tupperware party.

It seems like Dandy got the last laugh so far. There has also been a short interview on why Naomi Grossman was allowed to return as Pepper for the second season in a row. American Horror Story is an anthology show that uses many of the same actors, but gives them different roles as new characters each season. Grossman is the only actor on the show who has played the same character twice in the four seasons that the show has been on the air.

Grossman thought that Pepper’s popularity was one of the main reasons that they brought her back for another season. There have been some spoilers released regarding the 10th episode of the season. We know there will be more deaths in the freak show, and another returning character besides Pepper may make an appearance. The episode is supposed to tie season four of the show back to season two.

TAYLOR SWIFT IS WOMAN OF THE YEAR

Singer wins the award for the second time


Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift topped off an amazing 2014 on Friday by picking up Billboard's coveted Woman of the Year award for the second time.

The honour came as the Blank Space singer was preparing to celebrate her 25th birthday on Saturday.

She told the audience at the lunchtime gala, "Being named Billboard Woman of the Year for a second time is this amazing early birthday present. I turn 25 at midnight tonight, and I fully intend to celebrate like it's 1989 (the title of her hit new album and the year of her birth)."

She also reiterated her stand on streaming music sites after pulling her back catalogue from Spotify.com last month, adding, "I've taken this year to stand up for my value as a songwriter, as a businesswoman and a content creator. I'm very well aware the music industry is changing, and it will continue to change. I'm open to that change and progress. I'm not open to the financial model that is currently in place.

"I really believe that we in the music industry can work together to bond technology with integrity. And I think we can teach a younger generation about an investment in music, not just the ephemeral consumption of it. I think that there has to be a way for streaming or any future way we access music to fairly compensate the writers.

"Events like this, where we have the most powerful people in music all gathered in one room, events like this give me hope that the right conversations will start to take place, and I invite you all to join in the conversation."

Swift had a very special guest introduce her at the luncheon, superfan Gena Camerlengo, whose bridal shower the singer attended earlier this year, posting video of the party online.

Camerlengo said, "I've been fortunate to share in her transformation. Her ability to write and perform is incredible, but it's her impact beyond music where she really shines... I found Taylor because of her music, but I stayed because of her character."

And there was another very special moment for Swift when Women in Music 2014 Icon of the Year honouree Aretha Franklin sang Happy Birthday to the Love Story hitmaker.

Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX and Ariana Grande were also honoured at the gala.

New A9 Chip Will Be 'Made in America' For The Powerful iPhone 7

The iPhone 6 Plus (image: Ewan Spence)

The first A9 chips have rolled off Samsung’s fabrication lines in Austin (reports the Korean Electronic Times). The chips will be used in the next-generation iPhone from Apple, potentially exploiting Samsung’s 14nm technology. I’m confident that Phil Schiller will have a number of graphs ready for a presentation to show the A9 is faster, more efficient, and uses less battery power than ‘any other chip we’ve ever designed’.

Questions remain over which device the A9 chip will power and when it will be launched. Many industry watchers are still considering the idea of two iPhone releases next year, one to coincide with the launch of the Apple Watch in early Q2 and a second in the traditional September slot.

Apple iPhone 5c (image: Apple.com)
Releasing an A9-powered smartphone after the A8-powered iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been on sale for just over half a year feels like a bad move that will affect customer goodwill. The initial adopters (and all of those who have picked up a new iPhone at Christmas or as part of the Chinese New Year) will be left with ‘last years model’ after a far shorter release window than normal. Apple has moved this quickly to refresh a product line once before (in the move from the iPad 3 to the fourth generation iPad) in what was widely seen as a mis-step of marketing.

It’s unlikely that Tim Cook’s Apple would make the same mistake again.

The Apple Watch (Courtesy of Apple)

The launch of the Apple Watch is likely to see a spec bump in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus range. Raising the lower storage option from 16 GB to 32 GB would mirror storage jumps and mid-season bumps seen during 2014 for the iPad, iMac, and iPod portfolios.

The A9 chip will need to go into mass production at some point to allow Apple to build up significant inventory for a presumably late-September release of the iPhone 7. The current production is likely to be for a smaller ‘custom’ order that will be used in the prototype/beta builds of the iPhone 7. The new handset’s technology will need to go through extensive testing on the Apple Campus and out in the real world (even if the final chassis and case design will need to be disguised).

The impact of the A9 manufacturing is less on Apple (because this is an expected part of Apple’s yearly iPhone cycle), but will be felt more positively by rivals Samsung.

Samsung noted in October that its semiconductor business would be receiving significant orders during 2015. Apple switching back from the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (which took on the majority of the A8 orders, roughly sixty to seventy percent according to Apple Insider) to the South Korean company will be a significant part of that order book.

Samsung also allows Apple to bring more work back to the United States through the use of Samsung’s Austin plant.

Kim Ki-nam, President of Samsung’s semiconductor business told reporters in October that the company’s profits ”will improve positively” once the company begins to supply Apple with the latest technology chips (reports ZDNet and others).

While Samsung’s smartphone business may be looking at a tricky 2015, Apple’s return to Samsung’s semiconductors for the bulk of its orders will provide the South Korean company with significant revenues as JK Shin looks to re-establish Samsung’s Android dominance.

The irony that Apple’s order will be propping up its major competitor will be lost on nobody.

Recently, AHS star Kathy Bates admitted she often forgets her lines when working with co-star Evan Peters.

“I don’t know what it is but I’m always forgetting my lines when I’m working with him,” she said. “I don’t know if it’s because he’s so cute or whatnot. [Laughs]”

“I just get lost in his eyes. When you look into his eyes working with him, he’s just so real. It just kind of knocks me for a loop,” she added. “I know it sounds silly saying that.”

6 Reasons This Can’t Be Jessica Lange’s Last ‘American Horror Story’ Season


As amazing as the current season of “American Horror Story” has been so far, with its extraordinary physical specimens, murderous intrigues, and gratuitous tighty-whitey workouts by its petulant villain, the whole thing has also been imbued with a certain creeping melancholy: the further we get into the fantastic plot of “Freak Show,” the closer we come to Jessica Lange’s last appearance as the series’ grande dame.

It’s been widely reported that this will be La Lange’s last season on the show, without so much as a whisper of news that she might reconsider and stay. And with the end of “Freak Show” already looming, it’s time to stop pussyfooting around reality: Jessica Lange CANNOT be finished with “American Horror Story” yet. We won’t allow it! And here’s why.

1. She’s clearly not done doing accents.
Between this season’s sultry German growl and the gritty Boston patois of “American Horror Story: Asylum,” Jessica Lange is clearly not done displaying her talent for dialect. We need more!

2. Nobody delivers a better one-liner.
This woman has been responsible for all the most quotable lines in four seasons of horror stories, from this year’s quip about (ahem) cherry pie, to every time she said “Lana Banana” in “Asylum,” to a veritable buffet of bitchery worth repeating in “Coven.” Who’s going to give us our notable quotables if Jessica Lange leaves? Emma Roberts? I THINK NOT.


3. And nobody makes bad look so good.
From Constance Langdon to Elsa Mars, Lange’s characters have dominated the fashion scene of “American Horror Story,” and nobody wears the show’s fabulous wardrobe better. Even her role as a nun included a peek at some serious style sense under that habit.

4. Her musical numbers are the highlight of every season.
From “The Name Game” to “Life on Mars,” AHS reaches its pinnacle every time La Lange suits up for a song.

5. We need her to protect us from the patriarchal male.
Fact: If Jessica Lange leaves this show, it will lose its best (and perhaps only) line of defense against an invading army of Don Drapers and Walter Whites, led by Woody Harrelson’s “True Detective” character riding atop a giant wolf. This is a real threat, and it is terrible.


6. Without Jessica Lange, “American Horror Story” loses the thing that makes it a cutural game-changer.
In all seriousness: for all its camp, gore, and willingness to push the limits of good taste, “American Horror Story” is also a triumphant rare bird in the mainstream TV jungle; it’s a show dominated by female narratives, with a sultry grande dame at its helm.

Jessica Lange is 65 years old, an age at which women in Hollywood are usually relegated to sexless grandmotherly roles — that is, unless they’re serving as the butt of a joke about how gross it is when old ladies want to get laid. But on AHS, Lange plays characters who are both unabashedly desirous and widely accepted as desirable; in four seasons, she’s had more sex than any of the show’s young ingenues.

And until more roles are written for more actresses who can fill Lange’s groundbreaking shoes, we need her right where she is: on “American Horror Story,” front and center, killing off dusty sexist TV tropes one marvelous schtup at a time.



Yes: Please don’t leave us.
Also, BALENCIAGA.

'I'll outdo the Stones' promises Taylor Swift

Singer Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift plans "to outdo the Rolling Stones" when she plays London's Hyde Park next summer.

Ellie Goulding and John Newman have been announced as the support acts for the one-off gig on June 27.

The Hyde Park show is the final date on Swift's UK tour. An impeccably placed source said: "Taylor wants this gig to go down in history. Her plans for the production are huge too. She wants to outdo people like the Rolling Stones and the Libertines who have played the gig in the last couple of years.

"She's taken note that everyone wants to see what's next."

The Stones played Hyde Park last year as part of the same 'British Summer Time' series.

Their stage set included the recreation of a woodland, with giant screens surrounded by 70ft high replica oak trees.


Rumours abound that Swift will follow the London gig with a headline appearance at Glastonbury. (© Daily Telegraph, London)

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. – THE ONE WITH THE RETURN

How well it will be when you hear the news of returning of America’s one of the most hilarious show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. May be your expression is somewhat like the one given in the image below.



But you need to hold yourself here because nothing is true. These are just the rumors and in fact, many die-hard fans of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. make the fake videos by concatenating the clippings from various shows to make the video look like new version of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It shows the excitement among people about returning of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. on the T.V. and it also leaves the question behind that whether it should return or not. Because comparison can be drawn from previous F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and it would be a tough task for the creators to match the same level as it was set before.



F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is one of the most entertaining American sitcom of all time which successfully completed its 10 seasons. It got a perfect start and finished at a perfect note. It does not need to come again because if it comes and does not meet with the expectation of audience, the season will lose its glory that it had earned before. It is an antique show that should be kept in the museum for its unique comedy. It entertained us for 10 years but it does not end for the true fans. Till date many fans are used to watch every episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and their level of excitement is same as before when they watched it first time.



The speculations made on reunion of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. kept the fans expectations alive but Courteney Cox, who portrays the character of Monica Geller in F.R.I.E.N.D.S., denies all the speculations made in one of the famous talk show that appears on the T.V. She gave the reason why they are not planning to make the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. appear again. The reason behind is that entire cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. live in different cities now and they are already engaged with their ongoing shows. This may hurt many people but these rumors actually return the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. back. Not on T.V. but in the fuzz of about having it back. The whole episode about returning of the show is drawn for you. Hope this series may return with the same level of excitement and comedy as it had set before.



Hope they would turn back and return to their apartment and ask the audience “How you doing?”
