When you’re designing a work vehicle, you have to stand out… but THIS was something else.

At 52, she has stopped dying her hair but has not stopped resisting.
WELLFLEET – She’s back! Christine Rathburn Ernst – writer, poet, performer, teacher and activist – is in her eighth summer foray as the self-proclaimed Fat Ass Cancer Bitch. This time, the show is called “Resistant Gray,” a nod to both her age and her politics. At 52, she has stopped dying her hair but has not stopped resisting (any Trump supporters in the audience are invited to leave; “I am happy to refund your ticket price”).
Ernst is a compelling combination of storyteller, comedian, wordsmith and performance artist. Her narratives are personal, political, provocative and, by turns, poignant and hilarious.
Her latest show comprises more than a dozen narratives/verbal vignettes, with really bad jokes in the intervals between riffs (“What do you call a boat full of penises and potatoes? A dictatorship.” “Donald Trump walks into a bar and immediately lowers it.”). You groan and laugh at the same time.
Ernst has a wide-ranging repertoire this time around. She has recycled a few of her favorite monologues, infusing them with new vigor, but most of the evening is new material. While she celebrates everyday sacraments and sacrilege (simple acts of “sublime tenderness” and blatant inhumanity), she also hits on some big topics. Marveling at the amazing post-presidency of Jimmy Carter, for instance, contrasts starkly with her observed hypocrisy of piously, judgmental religious folk and the growing number of white males fingered by the #metoo movement.
Ernst has never played it safe, and she never hides her agenda. This show is in your face, making you laugh, cheer, question and reflect. She muses about growing older and the irony of her one-time hope that she would age into a winsome combination of Lauren Bacall and Catherine Deneuve while, instead, she became a disappointing morph between Janet Reno and Max Headroom. She tells tender tales of her aging father and her young daughters, all the while peppering her monologues with rapid-fire political raps, popular-culture references, raucous humor and righteous rage. She recites and then dismisses a poem she wrote about bunions (bunions?!), which somehow becomes personal and emotional.
Throughout it all, the passionate anger, the sentimental and heartbreaking anecdotes, the warm humor and bad puns, Ernst emerges as a singular, spectacular performance artist. She is on the road to achieving her goal of “being an effective agent of change in this broken world.”
Don’t miss this remarkable evening of honesty, outrage, humor and hope.

Google just confirmed what we already knew, that the Pixel 3 event will take place in New York on October 9th this year. That said, I’d usually tell you that we already know everything about the main star of Google’s show. The Pixel 3, and especially the Pixel 3 XL were featured in many leaks that included thorough hands-on previews and even full reviews of the phone. But the plot just thickened thanks to what appears to be a Google-fueled Pixel 3 XL conspiracy theory.
The gist of it is that Google faked the Pixel 3 XL leaks just to throw people off. The Pixel 3 XL with a notch isn’t real, that theory says, and Google orchestrated the whole charade in the past few weeks.
The evidence comes from a YouTuber who says that Google contacted him to ask for permission to use a Pixel 3 XL video, but also to announce the October 9th media event. He wasn’t forced to sign an NDA before discussing the matter, and he explained it all in a YouTube video — of course.
What Jon Prosser, the owner of the front page tech channel says in the clip at the end of this post is that Google asked for a specific Pixel 3 XL video in which he’s blasting the Pixel 3 XL’s ugly notch. Apparently, Google has been in touch with other YouTubers, asking them for similar clips. Apparently, Google wants to make some sort of montage of people complaining about the Pixel 3 XL notch.
The same Prosser talked in other clips about how the Pixel 3 XL leaks were faked for Google to hide the actual design of the handset, suggesting the phone might not have a notch like the iPhone X.
It all seems far-fetched. Google would have had to create a working Pixel 3 XL with a notch and then fake the theft of a batch of units that would later be sold on the black market in Ukraine and Russia.
But Google has already added notch support to Android Pie, which seems to be an indication the new Pixels are going to get notches. Not to mention that no Nexus or Pixel phone Google ever made was kept secret. If real, this Pixel 3 XL charade would require a massive effort for the company. Google would still have to test the real Pixel 3 XL while the world is looking at the fake one.
Come October 9th, everything will be explained. In the meantime, check out Prosser’s video below (the Google bit starts at the 3:37 minute mark):

Again? Rihanna has Chris Brown going crazy once more after she dropped a series of bikini pictures from the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Rihanna and many of her friends including BFF Melissa Forde traveled to the tropical islands to celebrate her hairdresser, Yusef Williams’ birthday.
In the Instagram photos, Rihanna showed off her toned body in a red bikini, and Chris is said to be turned on by what he saw.

A source told Hollywood Life: “Chris thinks Rihanna looks good all the time but when he saw these latest pics his jaw dropped. She has the perfect hourglass shape right now, and it’s all natural. That’s a huge turn on for Chris. He loves that Rihanna is all woman and all natural.”
The person went on to reveal: “Chris will always be attracted to Rihanna, and the more time they spend apart, the more he misses and wants her. Seeing her curves look perfect is driving him insane with desire, he would do anything to be with her again, if even for one night.”
