Sleepover @ IKEA for the Night

For one night only, IKEA is letting you live out that scene from 500 Days of Summer on August 31, 2014. In a partnership with Airbnb, IKEA is letting the families of three winners stay overnight at their store in Tempe, Sydney. The store has decked out three promotional rooms for this event and while we don’t have any photographs, we know it’s something that most would be thrilled to have the chance at doing. The three themes? Rustic charm, inner city living and modern elegance. So how much does it cost to stay in one of these rooms? 12 Australian dollars.

“Airbnb gives people access to the most unique listings around the world from treehouses to yurts to villas, and now we’re adding Ikea to the list,” Eva Ross, Local Operations Lead at Airbnb Australia, said in a statement. “The experience is sure to thrill any guest.”

There’s one proviso in the fine print: “By entering, you agree to be part of an event that will be covered by the media,” it says. “Oh, and that you will be woken in the morning in a remarkable way. Nothing frightening — we promise!”

Here is the official trailer for Martha Marcy May Marlene starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister Elizabeth Olsen. This film has been receiving at ton of buzz in the news lately for Olsen’s performance. I think I got some chills just from watching the trailer. In the film, Olsen plays Martha, a schizophrenic girl who has trouble trying to live a normal life after escaping from a cult. [Source]

China Playing Dirrrrty

This past Wednesday, the International Olympic Committee made the decision to strip China’s Gymnastics team of their bronze medal after discovering one gymnast was underage during the 2000 Olympic games.

The United States will be receiving the bronze instead. (YAYAYA!)

It turns out that during the Olympic games in Sydney, Australia, one of their athletes was only 14 years old. According to the rule book, you must be at least 16 – not pre-teen status basically.
