  3. It's the year 2044, and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty, and disease are widespread. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation. For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late twentieth century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle. Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed. From New York Times bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton comes a riveting novel based on one of the most volatile and intoxicating real-life love affairs of the twentieth century. Key West, 1936. Headstrong, accomplished journalist Martha Gellhorn is confident with words but less so with men when she meets disheveled literary titan Ernest Hemingway in a dive bar. Their friendship—forged over writing, talk, and family dinners—flourishes into something undeniable in Madrid while they’re covering the Spanish Civil War. Martha reveres him. The very married Hemingway is taken with Martha—her beauty, her ambition, and her fearless spirit. And as Hemingway tells her, the most powerful love stories are always set against the fury of war. The risks are so much greater. They’re made for each other. With their romance unfolding as they travel the globe, Martha establishes herself as one of the world’s foremost war correspondents, and Hemingway begins the novel that will win him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Beautiful Exiles is a stirring story of lovers and rivals, of the breathless attraction to power and fame, and of one woman—ahead of her time—claiming her own identity from the wreckage of love. Whether or not we like to admit it, pop culture is a lens through which we alternately view and shape the world around us. When it comes to feminism, pop culture aids us in translating feminist philosophies, issues, and concepts into everyday language, making them relevant and relatable. In Feminism and Pop Culture,author and cofounder of Bitch magazine Andi Zeisler traces the impact of feminism on pop culture (and vice versa) from the 1940s to the present and beyond. With a comprehensive overview of the intertwining relationship between women and pop culture, this book is an ideal introduction to discussing feminism and daily life.

    Release all 500 songs. Now... hear me out. One each month for the next 41ish years. Cut to me at 67 waiting for track 500 to be released in the store in our brains. Just kidding. None of us will be alive in 41 years. LOL.

    Favorite Rihanna Feature?

    It was originally intended as the lead single from Rated R but she traded it to Jay for another song, possibly Wait Your Turn. Drake talked about it a bunch cause they were seeing each other around the time.

  10. Mine is hands down: I would die for the OG solo version to leak 😞
  11. Yeah surely they would have rehearsed more if they had known this ahead of time.
  12. It came off to me as if this was a last minute idea. Cause Kevin doesn't play like that.

    Hello

    I don't know why it takes so long...it took me well over a year to finally get approved. I think it took me about 3 different applications before I finally got an account. I was always just reading the forum, which sucked cause I could never see the attachments.

    Hello

  15. Jenna

    Favorite genre?

    Mine is historical fiction and my favorite era is 1920s-30s.
  16. They really should have rehearsed more and not just backstage at the last second.
  17. Shopaholic Sam

    Hello

    Have you perhaps had an account there before but been banned? In that case it might have something to do with your ip. Just guessing here.
  18. so who else thinks Brian looks like a clown with his bow ties?
  19. Nobodycares

    Hello

  20. Nobodycares

    He's very into Funko Pop, his Deadpool costume, and poop jokes.

    I think you have the option to save them at the end and he didn't. It ended somewhat abruptly so maybe he messed up on accident.

    maybe he said things he didn't mean to and deleted it.
