Watch a couple hilariously melt down trying to play a video game - 19時間前  Mashable!

This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week. Yelling at the video games has been a popular hobby coping mechanism since Pong debuted. Projecting a full range of emotions towards a game at a high volume is cathartic, fun, and instinctual. That being said, suffering with a significant other is twice as loud and twice as fun.  Chris Gera and his wife demonstrated this perfectly while playing Crash Bandicoot on the couch this week. The subtitled video is a hilarious example of how screaming, "you're a bitch!" at the TV ca...more

'Punisher' deserves so much better than where Season 2 leaves him - 20時間前  Mashable!

In a sea of heroic do-gooders, Punisher was a welcome arrival onto the Marvel scene. While certainly nowhere near as evocative and poignant as Jessica Jones Season 1, his 2017 solo introduction into the Netflix-Marvel pantheon showed promise. The moral complexity of his character added some much-needed shades of grey to the usual black-and-white good guy superheroes versus bad guys.  SEE ALSO: 'Daredevil' is the latest Marvel series canceled by Netflix With the talented Jon Bernthal playing the trigger-happy ex-marine, Punisher Season 1 asked audiences to consider uncomfortable questions ...more

Why local organizers support the Women's March despite controversy - 22時間前  Mashable!

The 2017 Women's March completely changed Angie Beem's life. "The Women’s March got me out of the house, got me involved, made me educate myself, got me politically educated, and gave me something meaningful to do," says Beem, who is the board president for Women's March Washington State.  Last month, however, Beem announced the board's decision to dissolve, pointing to the national Women’s March refusal to "acknowledge and apologize for their anti-Semitic stance."  Allegations of anti-semitic remarks made by leaders of the national organization behind the Women's March i...more

All the best signs from Women's March events around the world - 13時間前  Mashable!

The Women's March is back for its third year, and despite several layers of controversy surrounding the march's leadership, highly attended events were still held across the world. In Dec. 2018, the march came under fire when Tablet Magazine reported allegations that the organization's leaders made anti-Semitic remarks. The fallout was fierce and the allegations were handled in a way that drew added criticism, with Women's March leader Tamika Mallory refusing to condemn anti-Jewish comments on The View earlier this week and several civil and women's rights groups declining to participate in th...more

7 ways to meaningfully honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day - 18時間前  Mashable!

Too often, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is seen as a day off — and little else. Aside from grade school lessons painting a vague picture of King's life and activism, the majority of us, especially white people, remain detached from his impact. King is a historical name we've learned to recognize, coupled with bits and pieces of facts from a whitewashed history. But truly appreciating his work is hardly on the radar — even on a day made to honor him. It's an uncomfortable reality of how we've been taught to value (or, rather, not value) one of the most influential black leaders in his...more

To see into someone's soul, binge on their Twitter likes - 20時間前  Mashable!

In Binged, Mashable breaks down why we binge-watch, how we binge-watch, and what it does to us. Because binge-watching is the new normal. And yes, we know this particular post is slightly tangential, but it's still an important public service. By now, employers know the drill: Research applicants' tweets and Facebook posts before you hire them, lest you risk another Kevin Hart debacle. (If your candidate talks about clobbering gay toddlers over the head with dolls, they're probably not your man.) But looking at tweets and retweets isn't enough.

Netflix's 'IO' doesn't deliver a world worth saving - 21時間前  Mashable!

Warning: Light spoilers for IO lie ahead. Not every world-ender can be world-ending. IO, the latest post-apocalyptic drama from Netflix, began streaming this weekend—but viewers crossing their fingers for another Bird Box are going to be disappointed.  While the film's premise and plot are fine enough, IO's lacking emotional depth takes what could have been an intimate look at the end of days and instead delivers a cringe-worthy reflection on shallow character creation.
