    Harvey Weinstein

    I’m not at all confident that it will stand up to appeal, but I can only hope he enjoys his time in jail until then. And give me a break with the being hospitalized. He’s experiencing extreme stress after the conviction??? ugh. So gross watching the entitlement.

    Harvey Weinstein

    25 years is arguably too short a sentence for his crimes. That said, I am thankful that he got anything at all given the very real possibility of a mistrial if the leaks of the questions the jury were asking are to be believed. I'm not holding my breath that the L.A. County charges will tack too much more on to his overall sentence if he's also convicted there. I can't imagine that there's too much incentive for any additional sentence to run concurrently, but the disconnect between time sentenced and time served in that jurisdiction is pretty great. Still, a good day.

    Harvey Weinstein

    He could be sentenced from 5 to 25 years. Five years is far to short a sentence for rape. I hope he gets the maximum. He is also facing charges in L.A. County as well. Hopefully he'll be convicted there too and serve out his sentences consecutively.

    Watched Parasite at a local movie theater over the weekend. Totally deserved the wins it got at Oscars.

    That’s sad but I’m so happy her story became widely known in her lifetime. Very inspiring woman.

    Any guesses what will happen in a year when they "reassess the situation"?

    “I mean, common sense would dictate if you don't want to be royal, then you can't be "Royal." 🤷‍♀️“ I think this all goes back to the story of their very first statement - the one that they put out without talking to anyone else. I don’t think they ever wanted to not be royal. I think they had every intention of having the cake and eating it. I don’t think they expected the family to take the hardline “"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," they said.”

    I agree, Wordsworth - I am prone to giving them the benefit of the doubt but the past few months have been full of rookie mistakes. I mean, common sense would dictate if you don't want to be royal, then you can't be "Royal." 🤷‍♀️

    Do they really believe that sour grape public statements like these are helping their image? Between this and the immediate move to talk to financial institutions, I’m actually starting to think it is about wanting money over wanting privacy. It’s not a good look. edit: meant to say this, to me, isn’t about the word “royal”, it’s about combining it with Sussex to refer to them specifically - in which case I agree you can’t do that while also claiming you don’t want to be a senior member of the royals.

    How does everyone feel about H&M not being allowed to use the word royal in their charity work? I have to say, I agree with the Queen. If you want to walk away from the royal family, then you don't get use that royal status in your company name either. In addition, charity organization tax returns are typically looked at more closely. I wonder if they know that?? When tax returns get published and a huge % of that $ goes into their pockets, people are going to notice...

    Nope! No yellow buses here. I did a two week school exchange to the USA when I was in high school and the yellow buses were frankly less glamorous than I’d imagined. 🤣

    As a totally separate question, do they have yellow school busses in England?

    I just discovered Drunk History in the US - it's so good. Will definitely look up the Horrible Histories online!!!

    Horrible Histories is brilliant, it’s a kids show based on a series of books to explain history and it’s smart humour. Have a look on you tube and you’ll see they also have a rap about Charles II and a song about Henry VIII and his wives. Oh and there’s good RAF and Dick Turpin songs too. 😆

    I saw this story yesterday and knew heads would roll. Harry and Meghan's use of the word 'Royal' being reviewed, source says https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/19/uk/harry-meghan-royal-sussex-brand-intl-gbr/index.html I have to admit I like the logo, very cleaver.

    WTF Branding February 18, 2020 [Blind Gossip] In the most refined, educated, cultured, polished, and modern way, this celebrity couple reacted to a proposed change to their branding. The reaction was basically, “What the f*ck? What the actual f*ck?!” So if you read something about how they have accepted the change, roll your eyes. They have definitively NOT accepted this change. They are furious beyond belief!!! This will cost them millions of dollars. They have sunk a lot of money into two-word branding, websites, trademarks, logos, etc. They are asking their attorneys if they have legal standing to fight. Their rationale for fighting? The word [redacted] is already being used on towels, on liquor, and on soda brands! They think they should be able to use the word the way they want to. Maybe. However, fighting the husband’s family on this could potentially make a bad situation even worse! It is possible that if they even signal that they are going to fight for that one word, the family could withdraw permission for the second word as well. Meaning… they could have certain titles taken away from them and have both words of the trademark challenged. Since the titles are pretty much all they have left, they might want to quit while they are behind. Better to settle for half than none? Perhaps their time would be better spent coming up with a new brand. In between all that yoga, of course. Did the family do the right thing? What should the couple do? Similar: The Big Plan Couple: [Optional] Give them a new brand name! Creativity encouraged!
