Friday Wrap: a Tribute to a Late Beastie Boy, #everyBODYisflawless, and More...

It's Friday! Time for your Burnt Orange Reporters to close some browser tabs and touch on the issues of the week.

Before we get started this week, if you haven't yet voted for BOR blogger Genevieve Cato in the Netroots Nation scholarship contest, please go vote now!

We're doing another all-video edition this week. First up, the Duck Tales Slow Jam you never realized you needed.

Below the jump, watch a trailer for the new show Gotham, starring Austinite Ben McKenzie, and more...

A fitting tribute to MCA of the Beastie Boys, who passed away two years ago Monday:

Loosely adapted from the pages of "Gotham Central," then reimagined with some inspiration from Kevin Smith and Paul Dini on the Fatman on Batman podcast, "Gotham" has been picked up for a full season by FOX and is dropping this fall. "Gotham" will join "Arrow" as the second DC property to air weekly on television. "The Flash" for CW and "Constantine" for NBC remain in development, hoping to be picked up for the Fall.

Marvel's "Agents of SHIELD" remains their only broadcast, live action tv series, although they have ordered 13 episodes of "Agent Carter" spinning off from "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Plus-size icons GabiFresh, Nadia Aboulhosn, and Tess Munster got together to shoot a video to Beyonce's ***Flawless to show that #everyBODYisflawless. The video, which is stunning, was meant to prove two points: that the women are working together to create a more body positive world and to show that your size does not determine your capacity for flawlessness. In Gabi's own words:

Fat is not a flaw. This video is dedicated to the mainstream media, to the fashion industry, to internet bullies, and to anyone else who thinks it's their right to try to make us feel less than because of their insecurities. #everyBODYisflawless
