Dustin tries to explain the “beyond ridiculous” True Detective season finale. (Uproxx)

Every picture I’ve seen out of the TCAs has been of celebrities sitting on panels, talking like normal humans. And then suddenly Kirsten Dunst is greenscreened into a beachside meadow and nothing makes sense anymore. (Go Fug Yourself)

Oh please, oh please let these Kardashian spawn name rumors be true. Not only is the name just the worst, but the “monograms” they’re supposedly putting on everything spell out “EW.” As is “ew gross, that’s a dumb name.” SOMEONE HAD TO HAVE NOTICED THIS, RIGHT? (Celebitchy)

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner took their kids to see Inside Out over the weekend, because apparently, in the middle of this weird public slow split, they really wanted the kids to watch their parents sob continuously for an hour and a half. (Lainey)

Could Amal Clooney really be giving up her human rights lawyering to take Donald Trump’s spot on Celebrity Apprentice? Well, I guess that “air of mystery” could only last so long. (Yahoo)

We are all of us this news anchor who is DONE with talking about the Kardashians and the Jenner daughters. I mean, we still do (see above), but we at least have the decency to hate ourselves for it.

Benedict Cumberbatch had to give some lessons in theatre etiquette after a Hamlet performance this weekend. (Wrap)

Oh, weird. Whoever ended up with Roger Ebert’s old phone number apparently never figured out how to log out of Ebert’s Twitter account. (Daily Dot)

This is a fascinating look at how we arrange the plot points and create the narrative of our own life stories, and how the stories we love to read influence our own. (Atlantic)

If you were wondering what perfect love looks like, it’s this: The inventor of the plastic pink flamingo wore matching outfits with his wife every day for 37 years. (The Chive)

I absolutely love these matrimonial maps. Also, “docking in the Port of Hymen” is hands-down my new favorite euphemism. (Atlas Obscura)

If you’re not aware, the amazing Mswas puts together your daily Cannonball Read blurb. Here’s a more personal than usual message for you, following some terrible events:

(Mswas here) I’ve had Douglas Blackmon’s book Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II on my list to suggest in Pajiba Love for five days since Ingres77 posted his review. But one year after the death of Michael Brown, one day after police shot another young man in Ferguson, what pithy comment can I make that will convince you to read this? Ingres77 opens his review with, "I can’t imagine that I’ll read a more important book this year," so I think I’ll leave it at that. (Cannonball Read 7)
