Swoon over the sensitive "Blade Runner 2049" actor as he gushes about his dog
As if you needed another reason to love Ryan Gosling.
On Friday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Ryan Gosling appeared to promote his new "Blade Runner 2049" movie — but also to pay tribute to his late dog, George.
Gosling revealed that George had died in December 2016 and that he feels weird calling him a dog. "There was something about George where I think he felt like being a dog was beneath him. He would not do tricks. If you wanted him even to sit down, you had to convince him it was in his best interest."
Perhaps that was true — later on Gosling recalled a moment when George climbed up onto a restaurant seat because he had had enough of the ground. "He got up onto their seat and sat down at the table like a gentleman and looked around the table like, 'Yeah, that's right.'"
Gosling even joked around, comparing George to an aging rockstar. "He was sorta skinny-fat and he had big hair and, you know, no teeth, open sores, but still sexy."
It's not the first time Gosling's spoken about his dog — in a 2013 interview with The Independent, he raved that George was "the great love of [his] life" and that he fills out special paperwork to take him everywhere.

Even back in 2011, Gosling brought George on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" while promoting his film "Crazy, Stupid, Love." As a mixed breed with a full body mohawk, he certainly made Gosling look cooler.
Even though Gosling revealed that he may find a new pet, George will never be forgotten — he lives on in the dog tags around his owner's neck. And if that doesn't melt your heart, I don't know what will.

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
