Doctor Who: “Hell Bent” Trailers

With last Saturday’s major twist of the Doctor arriving on Gallifrey, this week’s finale promises to be *very* interesting. Do note that WhateverHerTitleIsNow Me is also involved in what’s happening here, lending credence to those who think that the Doctor’s final line of “The Hybrid is me,” actually meant “The Hybrid is Me.”

Below, the TV trailer gives more detail.

100 Years of Beauty Part 14: Americana Tattoos

This is a bit of an outlier to the run of 100 Years of Beauty series that CutVideo has run. But to be honest, it’s actually quite up the rest of the sites alley, which focuses on interviews on subjects from pierces to sex to Americans reacting to the standards one finds overseas. Tattoos in America have certainly evolved with the times. It’s a fascinating concept, even if it doesn’t quite line up with what the series has aimed at so far.


This is also their first “full body” Beauty video (though many of the knock of versions, like the ones at Mode, do full body regularly.) It also is much longer than the regular videos, which keep themselves to a minute, and do not have any dialogue. As for the girl who permanently inked herself for this project? I suppose being a walking history of the artform is something to remarkable.

Check out the video below.

PreFall 2016: Burberry

With December nearly upon us, it must be time for the PreFall collections to descend. PreFall is one of those “off season” lines that rarely find themselves on the runway. In return they are the ones that last far longer in the stores. Even the most flamboyant and dramatic runway artists pull back when it’s time for these collections to present and aim for a far more commercial and saleable attitude. burberry-prorsum-pre-fall-2016-001

But don’t mistake saleable clothes for uninteresting. These collections actually tell us more about a designer than their runway collections can. In the streamlining process, when the lights and the music are removed and the frills and furbelows paired down, what is it about their design aesthetic that they think is responsible for the brand’s success? When it comes to Burberry, the answer is clean lines, lots of outerwear varieties, pants, pants and more pants, and of course, new takes on their traditional tan overcoat.

Note too, the variety of accessories that come with every outfit. Even if you are not into their Federalist style rows of brass buttons and historical cut waistcoats that wouldn’t look all that out of place on the Hamilton stage, Christopher Bailey is betting you won’t be able to walk out of the store without one of those adorable bags with the brand staple tartan pattern.

Check out the full line below.

Peter Jackson Hints He’s Directing Doctor Who, Trolls Steven Moffat

Hello, I’m look for a director?

Everything about this video Peter Jackson posted on Facebook over the holiday break is hilarious and delightful, from the endless polishing of the Oscars, to the concept that he couldn’t possibly direct anything in a mere twelve days. (Five months? Now we’re talking.) Let alone leave his beloved New Zealand to do so.


But just as you’re falling out of your chair over Jackson’s snark of Moffat’s overloaded schedule and how he couldn’t possibly write a coherent email after doing Doctor Who and Sherlock back to back, in walks Capaldi…excuse me The Doctor.

“Who?” asks Jackson.
“Exactly,” responds Capaldi.
