Reading a good book sets off a roller coaster of emotions: shocking thrills, elated highs and the crashing sadness when it's all over. Even a baby can feel all the feels. 

YouTube user Leesedanielle shared a video of one little reader who can't bear to hear "The End." 

"He knows no greater sadness than the end of a book," says the YouTube description.

Sweet boy, don't worry. There is a great big world of bindings out there just waiting to be bent.

Zac Efron's 'We Are Your Friends' Has One Of The Worst Openings Of All Time

(0) Comments | Posted August 31, 2015 | 9:49 AM

Zac Efron's "We Are Your Friends" got no love from friends, or pretty much anyone else, this weekend at the box office. 

"We Are Your Friends" debuted at just $1.8 million with a wide-release in 2,333 theaters. It now sits at No. 4 on Box Office Mojo's worst wide openings of all time (based on the site's data collection from 1982 onward). The only films with openings more dismal include: "Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure" ($443,901); "Delgo" ($511,920); and "Saw 10th Anniversary" ($650,051). 

The film, about an aspiring DJ and co-starring supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, was apparently a personal one for Efron. 

"This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him," Warner Bros. executive VP for domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein told The Hollywood Reporter. "Yes, the result was disappointing, but this was a small film."

Warner Bros. paid just $2 million to distribute the film in North America, but tracking suggested the film would open around $8 million, CNN reported.'s Kspence had some ideas about why the film performed so poorly

Let’s start with the plot: a washed up DJ and his girlfriend work with a slightly clueless DJ and his bronies to try and make it big. It completely romanticizes the idea of EDM, leaving out the real intricacies and killing its credibility. Bonus negative points for dumbing down Emily Ratajkowski‘s role to generic female lead and having no other females represented in the film. Lack of support from anyone in the dance music industry didn’t help either."

"We Are Your Friends" has a 43 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average one of 5/10. Critics called it a "clichéd coming-of-age story as programmed as the soundtrack's beats."

Caitlyn Jenner Explains How She Wants A Guy To Treat Her

(0) Comments | Posted August 27, 2015 | 1:07 PM

Jennifer Boylan gives Caitlyn Jenner a lesson in the "normalcy" of trans women during a discussion about relationships in an upcoming episode of "I Am Cait." 

"It would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me... like a normal woman," Jenner says during the episode, according to an article on the website of the E! network, which airs "I Am Cait."

When Boylan, a professor at Barnard College and acclaimed transgender author, presses Jenner about the meaning of "normal," Jenner continues: "Like any other woman on the street, and not make it this big trans thing, or this or that. Just a normal relationship."

Boylan then explains to the former Olympian why she is just as "normal" as every other woman, and why she doesn't need a man to validate that. 

"You don't need a man to make you a woman," Boylan says, according to a clip on the E! website. "A woman can make you a woman. It's a thing that women do. We look to men to give us self-worth. I think, now that you're in the sisterhood, you have gone to such trouble to be a woman, don't be a stupid one. Be a smart one."

Jenner, 65, has previously said she is unsure about what's in store for her dating life

"I have bigger things than an orgasm to worry about," she said in a trailer for "I Am Cait" earlier this month.

Here's How Donald Trump Would Explain His Anti-Gay Marriage Stance To His Grandkids

(0) Comments | Posted August 27, 2015 | 12:00 PM

If Donald Trump had a gay grandchild, how would he explain his stance against same-sex marriage? 

"Well, it's the way it is," Trump said Wednesday during a Bloomberg interview with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. "I wouldn’t speak to them at all about it other than they are who they are, and I want them to be happy and I will love them and I will cherish them."

When pressed on the issue, the real estate mogul cited Ohio Gov. John Kasich's remarks from the Aug. 6 GOP debate, when Kasich said he accepts the Supreme Court's ruling on nationwide same-sex marriage legality

"I’ve gone to gay weddings. I’ve been at gay weddings," said Trump. "I have been against [same-sex marriage] from the standpoint of the Bible, from the standpoint of my teachings as growing up and going to Sunday school and going to church, and I’ve been opposed to it, and we’ll just see how it all comes out. But, you know, if I was ever in that position I'd just have to explain it." 

Trump's stance on same-sex marriage has been known for quite some time. Back in 2011, he told Bill O'Reilly he didn't "feel right" about it. In February 2013, he told Howard Stern "it's not [his] thing." Later that year, he told MSNBC's Thomas Roberts that his views were "evolving" but that he was still "for traditional marriage." 

In June, the actor George Takei called out Trump -- who has been married three times -- for his views. 

"I think Donald Trump's interpretation of marriage is something that he himself doesn't really believe in, because traditional marriage is where two people love each other, commit to each other, care for each other over the years. It is a meaningful ceremony," said Takei, who is gay and has been wedded to his husband since 2008. "His interpretation of that is not recognizing what real marriage is."
