Do you own an Amazon Alexa device? Has it been laughing at you? I don’t mean to alarm you, but I think Skynet is here. (The Verge)

A McDonald’s in Lynwood, California flipped its golden arches upside-down in “celebration of women everywhere”. Ugh, stupid corporations making me like them, ugh. The worst. (Business Insider)

Game Of Thrones is currently filming and the cast and crew were in Belfast having a pint or two at a pub. Why didn’t they invite us? (Lainey Gossip)

Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison are filing for divorce after seven years of marriage. I can’t imagine that them finally getting divorced is shocking to anyone, but their marriage lasting seven years? That is shocking. (Dlisted)

The Fug Girls’ 2018 Best Dressed Oscars poll is up, so go vote! (Obviously, the winner should be Lupita Nyong’o. No contest.) (GFY)

As if I needed another reason to hate Best Buy: their Geek Squad? They be snitches. (The Root)

Today I read about Alabama’s white BBQ sauce and I felt attacked twice: once for the color violation, and the second time when I learned it was mayonnaise-based. No, Alabama. Bad, Alabama. What are you doing? STOP IT! (Atlas Obscura)

There is a lot of Oscar after-party gossip in this piece, but the one that jumped out the most was that Ben Affleck went to meet his kids at church on a motorcycle. Just living up to that tragic middle-life crisis stereotype, isn’t he? (The Cut)

I am old enough to be annoyed with teens, but not yet at the stage where I blame everything on “kids these days” and whatever new technology they’re using.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve given up on waiting for the third Kingkiller book (ditto ASOAF). Patrick Rothfuss recently implied that the Kingkiller series is a prologue, and I’m not even one ounce excited by this. A prologue to what, exactly? Another series he’s nowhere near completing? I’ll believe it when I see it. (Tor)

Speaking of, George RR Martin has announced that he’s quitting blogging because he’s “buried in work”. Again, sure, OK dude. I’ll believe it when I see a publishing date for that one book. (GQ)

When did you first hear about Haddish: The Carmichael Show, Girls Trip, or the Groupon story? (Cannonball Read 10)
