Where better than Washington Heights to meet local hero Lin-Manuel Miranda , the Manhattan neighborhood’s most vociferous supporter?

Netflix stock, which went into Friday’s Nasdaq session already down 16% in 2022 to date, is getting blitzed in mid-day trading. Midway through the trading day, the stock had managed to crawl back above $400 from a session low of $380 but was still down a remarkable 20%. Trading volume was more than 10 times normal levels. The rout followed a fourth-quarter earnings report that disappointed many Wall Street analysts and investors and triggered a larger debate about the outlook for streaming. While the company missed its fourth-quarter target for subscribers by just 200,000 (8.3 million additions vs. the expected 8.5 million), its weak guidance for the current quarter set off alarms. During their quarterly earnings interview, top executives could not identify any one cause for the slowdown in subscriber growth, instead reiterating confidence in the company’s overall trajectory. “For now, we are just staying calm,” co-CEO Reed Hastings said. Analysts were anything but … [Read more...] about Netflix Stock Gets Pummeled, Falling To Nearly A Two-Year Low After Disappointing Earnings & Wall Street Downgrades
Meat Loaf was a rock & roller like no other: a 300-pound sex symbol with a throat of gold. The singer, who died Thursday , started out in musical theater, and he boasted a clean, commanding voice that spanned both the baritone and tenor ranges. His delivery was a natural fit for both his star-making cameo in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the gorgeously outlandish, Oscar-worthy Jim Steinman –penned melodramas that defined his career: “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” and more. Whatever the song, Meat Loaf didn’t just belt out the words, he fully became the character. Here are 10 of his best performances. “What You See Is What You Get” (1971) Long before Bat Out of Hell or even Meat Loaf playing Eddie in Rocky Horror , he was the second-billed singer in the duo Stoney and Meatloaf (the group was so embryonic for Meat, he hadn’t even split up his name yet.) … [Read more...] about Meat Loaf: 10 Essential Songs
Getty The Los Angeles Lakers might be a dumpster fire right now, but that hasn't stopped fans from buying up all their gear ... with the Purple & Gold leading the NBA in merchandise sales this season. The league just released its list of most popular fan purchases through the 2021-22 season so far ... and LeBron James sits at the top of the throne for player jersey sales, with the Lakers coming in at #1 for overall team merch sold on the NBA Store website. It's pretty interesting, considering the Lake Show has stunk up the place this season -- they're 22-23 and head coach Frank Vogel is on the verge of losing his job. But, it's clear fans aren't going anywhere ... stocking up on their swag as the team falls apart. Stephen Curry comes in at #2 in jersey sales, with Giannis Antetokounmpo , Kevin Durant and Luka Doncic rounding out the top 5. Russell Westbrook -- who's had a pretty tough year -- didn't make the list ... but … [Read more...] about Lakers Lead NBA In Merchandise Sales, Despite Sucking

It’s one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from COVID-19, but it can also be pretty annoying, especially if you forget to bring a mask somewhere that requires them. Here’s a novel solution: the G95 Bio Pullover , a very cool and stylish pullover with its own built-in G95 filtration system in the neck. If you need to mask up, you just pull the filter up over your nose and mouth and boom, you’re good to go.

Obviously, the G95 air filter is the coolest part of the Biopullover, but it’s got a few other handy features as well, like stealth pockets, nearly invisible blacked-out branding, as well as an … [Read more...] about This Stylish Pullover Has A Built-In Air Filtration Mask!
