Madeline Kaplan, Huffington Post: Back to the Future, the ultimate action-comedy-romance-sci-fi flick, turn[ed] 30 on July 3. The classic film invented its own form of time-travel (if you watch the movie 88 times in a row, you will have traveled 10,208 minutes into the future), but even the most dedicated fans may not know what went went down before the film even made it to theaters. Here are some facts about "Back to the Future" every DeLorean diehard should know ...

But what was once mere easy listening, an exemplar of irredeemable uncoolness, has taken on weight and poignancy with time. A once dominant, very American-melting-pot mode of popular entertainment is about to pass into history. These are the last days of the great American showpeople. How will we remember their bellow-to-the-rafters, bear-witness-to-my-talent era? read more

Since 2011, however, Morales has been web-slinging in the company's alternate super-powered world, replacing the murdered Peter Parker. But now, it looks like that alternate version of Spidey is becoming the official one. According to the New York Daily News, when the Spider-Man comic relaunches in the fall, Morales will be the face underneath the mask, not Peter Parker.

Sharan Shetty, Slate: Madonna's career is packed with provocations, but few inspired outrage like "Justify My Love," the 1990 single that came with a grainy, art-house music video of the singer indulging in some taboo menage a trois. MTV deemed the video too explicit to air, and the subsequent scandal overshadowed how good, and ahead of its time, the song really was. But what happens when you pair its innovative, trip-hop production with some Led Zeppelin power chords? The folks at Wax Audio grafted Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" onto Madge's controversial, spoken-word classic, and the result is a surprisingly good and extremely sensual piece of music. Enjoy. read more

one more time...your problem isn't with what he said...your problem is he's not whinning and begging forgiveness and going into some reeducation program where so many cowards have gone when they've made a comment..

No, it is with what he said.

Stewart played a clip of the radioactive bits of Trump's announcement, and explained, "He's sure about the rapist part. But feels that, I guess, by pure law of averages, there are probably some non rapists caught up in that tide, whether they're unable to rape for medical reasons, or whether they are just all raped out."

He played clips of TV journalists' reacting, of NBC's reacting, Univision, Macys and Serta reacting – even Ricky Martin getting out of business with Trump. He noted how our "PC culture…immediately moves to shut controversial speakers up, and censor them – by interviewing them, everywhere, all the time," followed by news clips of Trump being interviewed. Everywhere. All the time.

He acknowledged it's "hard to get mad at Donald Trump for saying stupid things, in the same way you don't get made at a monkey when it throws poop at you in the zoo. It's a monkey. It's what they do."

But, what has most surprised Stewart is the "ridiculous, disingenuous defending of the poop-throwing monkey" in which the media has engaged. He showed clips of TV news navel gazers and politicians interpreting, explaining, and rationalizing the throwing of the poop. He also played Trump's speech again, and again.

Stewart played it in slow motion.

He played it as a song, urging viewers to follow the Classy Ball bouncing atop the lyrics:

They're bringing drugs

They're bringing crime

They're rapists

And some, I assume are good people.
