Rihanna purportedly declined an offer to perform the Super Bowl Half-Time show out of a show of solidarity to Colin Kaepernick, which is amazing! On the hand, now we have to watch Maroon 5. (US)

Kristen Bell, who plays a Disney princess, also has some problems with Disney princesses. (Celebitchy)

Are you watching The Haunting of Hill House? It’s really good. This is a good write up about the trauma and grief in the show. Spoilers, obviously. (Vulture)

I am somewhat of a doomsday prepper. I know this is dumb. Yet, I have bottled water and canned food tucked away in a closet. This story about the secret life of a leftist doomsday prepper in California struck a chord with me. (Narratively)

Y’all. I am not a fan of TayTay. But I respect the heck out of her recent Instagram posts. (I still wish she had spoken out prior to November 2016.) (LaineyGossip)

This is very timely because I just recently dove back into the Harry Potter audiobooks (for the, no kidding, 50th time) and every time Jim Dale says ‘Voldemort’, I am taken aback. I’ll never get used to it. I don’t care if it’s wrong, the French pronunciation sounds weird. (Mental Floss)

Ellen DeGeneres is very generous with birthday tweets. But Michael B. Jordan is more so. Wowza. (Twitter)

This story about how many Russian accounts and tweets Twitter found that interfered in the 2016 election is bonkers. 10 million tweets!! Plus, there was a story yesterday about how the Women’s March Facebook groups were infiltrated by scammers. Social media is failing us big time. (Technology Review)

Fine, I’ll admit to having watched way too many episodes of Property Brothers. What?! One of them is pretty cute. But now they’re getting a sitcom? That is not necessary. (Dlisted)

I love all these new studies looking at unconventional methods for fighting depression. MDMA, psilocybin (shroomies), and now a drink made out of Amazonian plants! (The Conversation)

Meghan and Harry continue their tour of Australia and today they got to eat chargrilled kangaroo. I know I shouldn’t be surprised by this menu item, but I am. Sue me. (GFY)

Best Chris 4evaaaaaaaa. (I accidentally wrote Christ instead of Chris, and you know what? He can be my lord and savior and holy spirit anytime he likes.) (T&L)

My favorite skeptic, Rebecca Watson, breaks down the whole Elizabeth Warren DNA test thing really well. (Skepchick)

Blessings upon Dale Cooper. (Twitter)

This title really says it all: Trolley Problems That Make You, a Millennial Woman of Color, Wish You Had Two Trolleys (McSweeney’s)

Peanut Butter & Mayonnaise Sandwich?! America, I cannot. CAN. NOT. (Atlas Obscura)

Sometimes real life writes the best scripts: car knocks over motorbike and tries to escape; different motorbike passing by gives chase through busy city streets until police arrive. Oh also: vigilante motorcyclist is FUCKING SANTA CLAUS! (Reddit)

One terrible movie, one even worse novelization of said movie, Tom Hiddleston’s ass, plus three Cannonballers reading aloud equals a masterpiece of scorn and derision. It’s just math. "Faintingviolet: I’m the one who read this chapter aloud to the group, and other than absolutely losing it at one point and laughing so hard I couldn’t catch my breath, I don’t remember three days later what this chapter contained, plot-wise." We aren’t going to tell Nancy Holden, or Tom Hiddleston’s ass, how much crystalclear, faintingviolet, and Ale hated Crimson Peak:The Official Movie Novelization. What book or movie has made you chortle with derisive glee? (Cannonball Read 10)
