How The Debate Over The Dress Almost Broke The Internet

dress-gate1

(PCM) Almost every other debate or argument that typically takes place on the internet was put aside as everyone began to weigh-in with their opinions on #Dressgate.

It all started when a Tumblr user posted an image of a dress and asked for the public’s assistance to settle a debate among a few friends about the actual color of the dress. The post read “[G]uys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f*** out”. 

The question sparked up a firestorm of activity and confusion as seemingly people are completely split in the way that they view the dress. Many users agreed that the dress was indeed gold and white, while others saw the complete opposite and viewed the dress in black and blue.

For the record, the dress appeared to me to be gold and white, however it was interesting to note that Vice.com published an image of the Tumblr poster allegedly wearing the dress in question and clearly in that particular photo (posted below) the dress is black and blue. After I viewed the black and blue dress wearing image, I then took a look back at the original picture and only then was I able to pick up a few shades of blue.

The color of the dress remains a mystery and many experts feel that the reason why some of us see different colors is based upon the way the light is reflected off the image. That is only one reason and it is surprising that a small Tumblr post about a dress has even left many vision and image experts completely and totally baffled.

It even has me freaked out, because now that I am done put together this article, I am now beginning to actually see the dress in blue and black. It is just unreal!

What color do you see what you look at the dress? Did looking at the image of the girl wearing the dress change the color for you at all?

Catwoman Is Now BiSexual

catwoman-39(PCM) Most people accuse both Marvel and DC of trying to be politically correct with scores of changes to existing characters in the name of diversity. Not true. Their only aim is to increase sales. It’s money they are after and to do so, they go after safe but controversial subjects.

DC has done just that with Catwoman. After 75 years she is now ‘coming out’ as bi-sexual. And DC’s been quick to call it canon. If you are speculator, buy issue no. 39. But don’t expect that issue to ever have any value. Only true first appearances or short print runs yield a return on the investment.

So how does DC make the case Catwoman (Selina Kyle) is bi-sexual? She kisses a girl outright (Eiko Hasigawa) in Catwoman No. 39 of the New 52. The character Eiko is an heiress of the Hasigawa Family part of the Yakuza in Gotham. The relationship between the two hasn’t been stated as a long term plot point making it hard to think DC has any other agenda besides the controversy this shockwave will have in the media.

If you are avid reader, DC has been dancing with this topic ambiguously for some time now as she interacts with other female characters.

The writer responsible for the change in sexual desire of Catwoman is Genevieve Valentine. She took over the Catwoman series in October 2014. In Valentine’s own words regarding Catwoman, “She’s flirted around it – often quite literally – for years now. For me this wasn’t a revelation so much as a confirmation.”

catwoman3While some see this as a desperate attempt to jumpstart Catwoman again, it will have a hard time overcoming the fact Catwoman isn’t the Catwoman most remember her to be. She’s no longer a chaotic neutral character. She’s now in the camp of the bad guys in a way that isn’t something you want to expose your kids to as a favorable characters. Catwoman now runs a family in the criminal underworld.

If you care that Catwoman is lesbian or bi-sexual in that it changes her relationship with Batman, then yes this change will disappoint you as a fan of the Batman canon, but try to understand that comics can’t tell full stories of characters in the sense that these characters are timeless. They are generally permanently locked into a time of their life that can’t reach closure. They can only constantly evolve and be retold and remolded for the next generation of readers.

Trolls across the Internet seized on the advice of Edna Mode from The Incredibles to make fun of Madonna when she was not quick enough in unclasping her cape during a performance with dancers at the Brit Awards on February 25th 2015. The result was her dancer pulled her backwards down a set of four stairs leading up to the stage.

To Madonna’s credit the 56 year old performer stood back up and continued the performance of Living For Love without another mishap.  No sooner did Twitter go nuts with ribbing by celebrities and anonymous users alike. Here is video to the original fall without editing.
