If there were a Mount Rushmore for technological innovation, Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs would be the faces looking outward. The longtime CEOs of Microsoft, Intel, and Apple have done more than anyone to popularize the modern-day personal computer, and in doing so, also created three […]

“I look at it like it’s a really nice monster,” he says in a low, gravelly voice familiar to millions of wrestling viewers who know him as “Mr. McMahon,” the megalomaniacal lord of the ring. “When you feed the monster, the monster is happy. The problem with that is, the monster grows. And as the monster grows, then the monster wants more to eat. And as long as you do that, everything’s great. And if you don’t provide the food, then bad things start to happen.”

Is the monster the audience?

“You can look at it that way, absolutely,” McMahon says with a smile.

PARTYNEXTDOOR MAKES FORBES 2015 HIP-HOP CASH PRINCES LIST

Every year Forbes does a Hip-Hop Cash Kings list and Drake has managed to make it for the past few years. They also do a Hip-Hop Cash Princes list and for the first time PARTYNEXTDOOR makes the cut.

Last year was a big year for Party as he dropped his second mixtape, ‘PARTYNEXTDOOR 2′ and embarked on his first solo U.S. tour ‘PND Live’. This year he extended the tour by adding additional U.S. and overseas dates. Party also produced three tracks on Drake’s hit mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” and is featured on two. He’s been hard at work and Forbes has recognized that as he makes their annual Hip-Hop Cash Princes list. This particular list is mainly comprised of rappers, but Party represents for the r&b singers.

“Signed to Drake’s OVO sound, 21-year-old rapper and singer Jahron Brathwaite has only put out two full-length releases as PartyNextDoor in 2013 and 2014. His unique mix of smooth late night drugs-and-sex music has helped him bubble up slowly, playing sold out dates in the U.S. and producing 3 tracks on Drake’s recent If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.”

Nearly half of all Americans couldn’t come up with $2,000 without pawning belongings or charging to a credit card. Here’s why your credit card shouldn’t be your lifesaver.

Sunday night’s 90 minute Walking Dead season finale, episode 516, was sprawling and action packed, with danger on every front and beloved characters on the brink of death.

But the decisive scene, buried in the middle of “Conquer,” was all talk and no action.
And it ripped a page right out of the Breaking Bad playbook, to marvelous effect.


The moment I’m talking about is the one where Carol comes to visit Pete. Taken on its own the scene is totally satisfying. Pete is a lumbering brute, but he’s also a coward who hits women and children. Carol, had once been a victim of a guy like that, and even though he’s twice her size, she calls him out.
She tells him calmly how she could gut him in cold blood, and get away with it.

“I could kill you right now. I could. I will. And then who would believe I did it because I didn’t like you? No one. They’d believe you tried to hurt me,” she says with a smirk. “They’d definitely believe that.”

But then she sheathes her blade, symbolically at least, and morphs from bad cop to good cop.
“The way this is played out, you have a chance. You’re here. Your wife’s there. You’re a small, weak nothing. Play your cards right and maybe you don’t have to die,” she says, laying out a road map. “And I want my dish back clean when you’re done.

We know our endpoint… But we’re also beginning to think about, ‘If we drop our endpoint, how does it spin forward? How do you reboot in a super interesting fashion?' We know our main characters journeys. So we know where we want that chapter to close for sure. But do we call it a chapter or do we call it the endpoint from now on? That’s kind of the trick of the thing.
