The truth about sexual harassment in Silicon Valley

The truth about sexual harassment in Silicon Valley

In the New York Times, Katie Bienner relates a cultural shift in Silicon Valley: women victims of sexual harassment describing their experiences frankly. In an industry bound by delusions of meritocracy and egality, simply talking about it is radical. More than two dozen women in the technology start-up industry spoke to The Times in recent days about being sexually harassed. Ten of them named the investors involved, often providing corroborating messages and emails, and pointed to high-profile venture capitalists such as Chris Sacca of Lowercase Capital and Dave McClure of…

Wanna know how the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast celebrated the Battle of the Bastards?

The Starks and the Boltons may have been sworn enemies on Game of Thrones, but they didn’t let that get in the way of a good time. Speaking at the Con of Thrones convention in Nashville on Friday, Iwan Rheon (aka Ramsay Bolton) revealed that after filming wrapped on episode 609, “Battle of the Bastards,” the two sides put aside their differences for an evening of revelry. “When we finished filming ‘Battle of the Bastards,’ all the Bolton guys and the Stark guys got together and had a massive party,”…

Amazon’s Fake ’80s Cop Show ‘Comrade Detective’ Will Be Dubbed By Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and More

Amazon’s Fake ’80s Cop Show ‘Comrade Detective’ Will Be Dubbed By Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and More

Amazon and A24 may have just genetically engineered a television show that perfectly aligns with my sensibilities. Comrade Detective, which debuts later this summer, is being made to look like a Romanian cop show from the 1980s, with Romanian actors Florin Piersic Jr. and Corneliu Ulici playing the lead roles. But here’s the part that will make people raise their eyebrows: Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are providing dubbed voiceovers for those characters, and they’ll be joined by a crazy-talented group of actors that will be doing some dubbing of their own. Read the full list of names in the Comrade Detective…
