Asked about the Aziz Ansari situation, Amy Schumer handled it about as well as she could, given past comments: “He’s been my friend and I really feel for the woman. I identify with all the women in these situations. Even if it’s my friend, I don’t go, ‘Oh, but he’s a good guy.’ I think, ‘What would it feel like to have been her?’” And I know what you’re all saying, “Oh, you feel for the women unless that friend is your writer?” And you’re absolutely right, but then again, what are you going to do? If she takes Ansari’s side, she’ll be rightly criticized, but if she doesn’t, she’ll be rightly called a hypocrite. I’m guessing she wishes she could jump back into the Summer of 2016 for a do-over.

Way back in our scathing and bitchy days we here piled quite a bit on Katherine Heigl. I’m still scathing and bitchy, but I reserve those emotions for those a bit more worthy of my ire. So when I read that Katherine Heigl has been cast for the new season of Suits I felt happy for her. (The Wrap)

Quincy Jones threw some excellent shade at Taylor Swift. (Celebitchy)

The Canadian government just voted to make their national anthem gender neutral. Show-offs. (The Cut)

Out of all the Crooked Guys, Lovett is my favorite (hashtag best pod boy, hashtag pundit is an angel, hashtag we’re not using the other apps anymore) so no wonder I love his flu season rant so much. (Upworthy)

Have you heard of the Voynich manuscript? It’s a gorgeous 15th-century document, filled with illustrations and a mysterious code which has not yet been broken. An AI program might be close to cracking the code. (Atlas Obscura)

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said, and I fucking quote: “AI is one of the most important things humanity is working on. It is more profound than, I dunno, electricity or fire.” Ok, my dude. You don’t get to cook your food for one whole month. Deal? (Gizmodo)

The thing about Carl on The Walking Dead is that he has to die, so that Negan can live. I think that may be the problem. (Uproxx)

I don’t recall the last time I purchased an entire album, but Black Panther The Album is going to change that. It sounds dope (or lit? tight? legit?; whatever the kids say these days). (Lainey Gossip)

I love this: San Francisco is purging decades-old marijuana convictions. (The Root)

For the first time, scientists have identified brain cells that regulate anxiety levels. Great! How do I give those suckers a boost? (Mental Floss)

Never miss a JLo (or Britney) post from the Fug Girls. (GFY)

Tor has a list of the deadliest magical weapons, but I think Brandon Sanderson’s Nightblood sword should be on here. Zealous and sassy, a lethal combination. (Tor)

This article about the similarities between Lady Bird and Real Women Have Curves is very good. (Marie Claire)

Justin Timberlake is confused why we’re all confused that his album, Man of The Woods, is not a country album. I assume this album was produced by like 28 people. Did no one point this out to him? (Dlisted)

So the solution to our antibiotic resistance seems to be…killer viruses. Yup, that tracks. (MIT Technology Review)

Olive Garden Pasta Nachos. Yay or nay? Hahaha, just kidding, any kind of nachos are a yay. (Eater)

Tonight, February 1, is #HarryPotterBookNight! Cannonballer soapyme, a Harry Potter fan, has read all the books and visited the online community Pottermore. After picking up The Hogwarts Collection and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, soapyme makes the argument that it’s time for J.K. Rowling to focus on writing outside the Potterverse. Do you think it’s time for Rowling to leave the Potterverse?
