Orange Lutheran sculpture: What is the meaning of it?

Almost 200 Orange Lutheran students joined together to create the 28-foot-long hanging sculpture “Wave of Hope.” The piece, made of CD fragments, wire, poultry fencing and climbing rope, was designed by the school’s advanced sculpture and ceramics class and built over a three-month period. Its shape was inspired by the word “hope.” The artists who helped create the piece share their thoughts on its meaning.

Deven Atwater: This represents hope because we've all struggled and been hurt, but when we are put together we shine.

Creepy Kellyanne Conway Goes Fatal Attraction On ‘SNL’

A smoldering anger, a knife, and a twisted Kellyanne Conway. The “Saturday Night Live” remake of the slasher/stalker movie “Fatal Attraction” with Kate McKinnon playing Donald Trump’s advisor isn’t pretty.

‘Star Wars’ Droids Star In ‘Friends’

Nobody could blame these sitcom actors if they come off as a bit robotic.

It would be called “Droids,” obviously ― and the likes of RD-D2 and C-3PO would be there for you.

Watch Tom Cruise's Films Fall Into A Bunch Of Movies Which Are not His

Try not to look down, Tom Cruise.

YouTube user DrMachakil edits the actor’s falling scene from “Vanilla Sky” into a jumping-off point for the actor to plummet through films such as “Star Wars: Episode II,” “The Avengers” and “Men In Black 3.

He even catches the attention of a certain wizard on the way. 

Maybe he should borrow his broom.

Bill Maher has issued a stark warning to fellow TV hosts who interview President-elect Donald Trump in the upcoming months.
