Wow, this weekend, and today specifically, got away from me. We mainlined Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and the day just flew by. All of a sudden it’s time to have links for you and I’m coming up empty because more than anything, I want to go watch/read up on Lenny Bruce, and I want to shop for those beautiful dresses worn on the show!
And speaking of beautiful dresses, this nightmare Vuitton that poor Jennifer Connelly is trapped in is not one of them! Fuckin’ yikes! What even is happening here? No but why? Who did she piss off? - (T&L)
Also at this Vuitton party, Catherine Deneuve wearing a basic black leather skirt. And a gilded armor breastplate and fur cape. Because it’s winter. Duh. - (GFY)
While we’re sort of on the subject of Amazon, there’s a wishlist there to buy and donate toys to the children of incarcerated parents. It’s a lovely and wonderful way to make a small difference for a family who has enough hardship to worry about. - (Bustle)
Unsavory stories about Bryan Singer have been swirling around forever. So much so that even *I* have heard them, which means EVERYONE has heard them months or years before. Ever since the Weinstein/Spacey news, people have been waiting for the Singer shoe to drop. If the disappearance of Bryan Singer and the halted production of Bohemian Rhapsody is any indication, the story(ies) may be breaking any day now. - (Celebitchy)
Billy Bush just came out and basically said, “Bitch, please. You know that was you!” to Trump. We are full circle, people. - (NYTimes)
ScarJost is officially official. I guess. Honest to God, if you’d ask me in 2015 which were more likely — Trump would be President or Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson were a couple — I’d be hard pressed to choose.. - (LG)
Here’s something really nice, though. Kind of like a Kindness Advent Calendar (sort of - just work with me here, ok?), I stole this from Shonda on Facebook and I absolutely love it! - (Action for Happiness)
This Twitter thread is really sweet too. It made me sniffle a smidge.
I'm going to write a thread about the nicest Christmas gift I ever received. I was nine years old. I think it cost the person who gave it to me about £1.50.— Hayley Webster (@bookshaped) December 3, 2017
I wish I had the sleeping abilities of this Waffle House employee. I wake up if a squirrel across the street sneezes. This employee sleeps through a customer making his own drunken meal. - (Dlisted)
Escapist fiction can help us grapple with truths in different ways than confronting reality head-on. Cannonballer ElCicco, like many of us, is grappling with the state of the world. N.K. Jemisin’s The Broken Earth trilogy presents us with an Earth on the brink of environmental disaster, rife with racial division and oppression, and governed according to an untrue mythology. Can that world be saved, and does it deserve saving? Can ours? (Cannonball Read 9)
Longtime Eloquent Stardust sent this along: How many Florida people do we have here? This ballot measure is important enough that Lady Gaga had a table at her concert in Miami. Florida is 1 of 3 states in which felons who have served their debt to society cannot vote unless they go through a lengthy and difficult clemency process at the end of which Rick Scott denies their request anyway. If you haven’t signed and mailed in the petition to reinstate voting rights and stop this voter suppression, please do so. At last count, we were 100,000 away from the number needed to put the measure on the ballot. -
