VIZIO LCD HDTV ~ “No signal” then shuts off ~ SOLUTION!

When I turned "ON" our VIZIO LCD HDTV, the screen turned blue, displayed the text "No signal," then shut off. No matter what buttons I pressed on the remote or the VIZIO HDTV itself, when I turned on the TV it automatically shut off. F*CK! The behavior started when we...

Florence Pugh Eats 11 English Dishes

Florence Pugh's modern, almost boyish mannerisms create a fun contrast to her Victorian (?) attire in this video where she eats  "a bunch of British food." Done for Vogue, this nicely produced video of a very witty Florence Pugh (pronounced "pew") was surprisingly...
