Relishing their new relationship, Korra and Asami leave the spirit world … but find nothing in Republic City but political high jinks and human vs. spirit conflict!
A pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. What’s more, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal all-out brawl at the city’s borders—where hundreds of evacuees have relocated!
Written by series cocreator Michael Dante DiMartino and drawn by Irene Koh (Secret Origins: Batgirl, Afrina and the Glass Coffin), with consultation by Bryan Konietzko, this is the official continuation of The Legend of Korra!

If you don’t know who those 2 wonderful human beings in the first pic are, they’re Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn, cocreators of the Youtube channel Just Between Us. I recently saw a comment on one of their videos saying that their dynamic was very similar to Dan and Phil’s. I completely disagree with this, and I think if it were true, I wouldn’t like either of these channels as much. Dan and Phil are very different people, but they share enough similarities (both aesthetically and personality-wise) that it is easy to see why they are best friends. Gaby and Allison have so many differences you would never guess that they would get along, so their friendship is really entertaining. 

Each of these duos has completely unique dynamics, and that’s why we love them. Because they can’t quite be compared to anyone else.

Keep doing what you’re doing, guys.

Praise

“Doug Moe has written a delightful and helpful book that gives real advice about the Wild West world of raising children.”  Amy Poehleractress, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author of Yes Please

“Thankfully for new fathers like me, Doug Moe knows it all, from little kids doing pee-pee to big kids doing homework. It’s essential reading for dads and future dads.”Michael Showalter, writer/director and cocreator of Wet Hot American Summer

“Doug Moe is the second-best father I know. Even if the only thing you get from this book is a good time, then Doug has done more for fathers than any other book of its kind.”Rob Corddry, actor and comedian, The Daily Show and Ballers

“I am about to have a baby and I am terrified and feel like an idiot! Then I read Doug Moe’s Man vs. Child! Now, I am prepared to have a baby. I am slightly less terrified and I am still an idiot! Thanks, Doug!” Bobby Moynihan, actor and comedian, Saturday Night Live

“Hurry up and buy this book! I didn’t get a chance before my baby came and now I’m screwed! Help! I haven’t slept in weeks and now I don’t know what I’m doing! Dammit, Doug, why didn’t you write this while I still had time to read books??” Rob Huebel, actor and comedian, Human Giant and Transparent

“Man vs. Child is a hilariously honest look at parenting that even moms can appreciate. I mean, any book that encourages new dads to ‘vacuum and be nice’ is one I can get behind!”Ilana Wiles, blogger and author of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting

“A taut, erotic thriller. This is a smart, dark look at  the human condition, our strengths and our weaknesses.  Doug Moe has done it again.  I did not read this book.”- Jason Mantzoukas, actor and comedian, The League

“Doug Moe is hilarious. I’d read anything he wrote, including this book, which I read and loved. Doug’s writing is funny and irreverent, which could lead one to think he’s a bad dad, and quite honestly, I thought that for years. “That Doug Moe, he’s one tantrum away from ‘going out for a pack of cigarettes’ and never coming back,” we used to think and not say. But then his wife seemed to be sticking around, and she seems chill, so you gotta think he’s probably OK. Shady dude, though.“- Jon Daly, actor and comedian, Kroll Show

“…a tongue-in-cheek guide for new fathers with awkward questions, including—but not limited to—“Is It Okay to Bring My Baby to a Bar?” The short answer is no, but there are plenty of long answers as well: Moe writes from experience, and casts an empathetic eye on the shifting representations of modern fatherhood. “Old Dads,” Moe claims, could father from a distance, while the “New Dads” of today are rightfully expected to share playtime duties. He goes on to describe the awed affection new fathers may have for their children with relatable humor and genuine insight, offering a promising resource for the curious and the clueless.” - The New Yorker

As a cocreator for the blackout how do you feel about dark skin appreciation day?

I think it’s great. I love all the appreciation days, it’s dope to give specific people shine since Blackout is so General and huge that a lot of people feel left out.

We are already in every dimension so there is no shifting dimensions, just shifting perspectives. All possible futures already exist. Which one will YOU choose is the question. Life is co-creation. Being consciously “present”, aware of our energy, is the best thing we can do for ourself and the planet. It’s not our job to “fix” everything, or others, it’s our job to be our authentic selves in each moment doing what we truly feel. This is how we attune the ego and higher self –Jeff Andrews

The magician, priest, and the modern- day alchemist recognize that the sacred language of prayer, invocation, and affirmation initiates changes within us and in the outer world. These words of power, or heka, are seed thoughts of reality. Invocation and affirmation reinforce the idea that as living members of the body of the Divine, we cocreate the world in which we live. The simple phrase open sesame works as an agricultural model, as a sexual metaphor, and as a symbol for all things that grow.

Macaulay Culkin to appear in Seth Green's directorial debut, 'Changeland'

Last year’s experimental Adam Green’s Aladdin aside, it’s been a decade since Macauley Culkin last appeared in a film. But it was announced Wednesday that the star of Home Alone and Saved! has been cast in Changeland, the directorial debut of actor and Robot Chicken cocreator Seth Green.

The film stars Green as a hesitant character undergoing a personal crisis as he meets up in Thailand with his self-assured best friend, portrayed by Breckin Meyer. Green also wrote Changeland, which costars Brenda Song, Clare Grant, Rose Williams, Kedar Williams-Stirling, and WWE Superstar Randy Orton.

“It feels like a dream to be filming in Thailand with an incredible crew and some of my closest friends,” said Green in a statement.

Green and Culkin costarred in the 2003 film Party Monster and the latter has voiced several characters on Robot Chicken.

Once Upon a Time First Look: August Returns… in Which Realm(s)?

Knock on wood, Once Upon a Time‘s Emma will get a helping hand in the Wish Realm from a familiar face when the ABC series resumes Season 6.

Having missed their ride home at the close of the midseason finale (after Regina got distracted by the sight of an alive-and-well Robin Hood), Princess Emma now finds herself “partnered up with the person who killed the king and queen, so everyone — including their own son — is looking or them,” series cocreator Eddy Kitsis previews.

Perhaps Eion Bailey’s August Booth aka Pinocchio, seen in the exclusive photo above, is in a position to offer the stranded Storybrookers some assistance?

“We love Eion Bailey, we love August and we love Pinocchio,” cocreator Adam Horowitz says of the upcoming encore. “We will get to see him in multiple worlds and realms.”

Bailey made his Once debut midway through Season 1, his character first known simply as The Stranger. He last appeared at the end of Season 4, when August provided insight on Author mythology.

“Part of the fun of being in Season 6 is we’ve met so many characters in the 120-plus episodes we’ve done,” Kitsis observes. “It’s always fun to bring them back.”

Once Upon a Time Season 6 resumes sometime in March.
