Howdy folks! Lainey is out for the night socializing, so I will be your linkmaster sub for the evening. And what do we have? How about the best outfit from last night’s AMA Awards, which was worn by Constance Wu. (Also, Wu has joined J.Lo’s Hustlers in a lead role.) (Lainey)
Love is in the air! And by that, I mean, Caitlyn Jenner has a 22-year-old girlfriend. Caitlyn, by the way, is 68, so, you know. (Celebitchy)
Channing Tatum, meanwhile, is dating the far more age appropriate Jessie J. I have no idea who Jessie J is, but it is safe to say that Charming Potato has a type. (Jezebel)
Roxana wrote this splendidly wonderful essay about Annihilation for the Bright Wall/Dark Room uncanny issue. It’s still her favorite movie of 2018. (Bright Wall/Dark Room)
One year after the Devin Faraci scandal, Kristy returned to Fantastic Fest and spoke to female filmmakers who chose to attend during this pivotal time. (SyFy)
Melania Trump is trying out a new middle ground in the #MeToo movement: “I believe women. As long as they have hard evidence.” That’s not how that works, Melania. (The Root)
A local Kansas GOP official on Democratic congressional candidate Sharice Davids: “The REAL REPUBLICANS will remember what the scum DEMONRATS tried to do to Kavanaugh in November. Your radical socialist kick boxing lesbian Indian will be sent back packing to the reservation.” Classy. (Kansas City Star)
Meanwhile, a Minnesota Republican ripped the microphone out of his Democratic opponent in a debate. The bowl of asshole is all full up in the Republican party, folks. (WashPo)
Listen: If you have a Twitter account, I just need you to do me a quick favor, OK. RETWEET THIS. It’s for love. It’s for Hellboy. It’s for David Harbour. But mostly, it’s for Carly Lane, a wonderful online writer who absolutely deserves to be married by Hellboy.

Of this tweet.
Big Red officiates. Full Gear. In his saintly best.
Think of how difficult it will be for me to get this character ordained by a Christian church😈🙄

ELLE’s Women in Hollywood issue has a lot of pretty covers and good quotes from the likes of Shonda Rhimes, Keira Knightley, Lupita Nyong’o, and Mia Farrow. But some other diverse representation would have been nice. Gina Rodriguez? Constance Wu? (Elle)
Trust me when I tell you that this may be the greatest obituary ever written. (Legacy)

Congratulations to Jen K, the first Cannonballer to blackout her bingo card. One of the books required to complete the card, Craig Ferguson’s Between the Bridge and the River, is also the next #CannonBookClub selection. It wasn’t what Jen K was expecting, though she found she liked Ferguson’s dry wit. “For a three star book with lots of eh parts, I have a surprising number of passages highlighted.” You don’t have to have finished the book to join the discussion on November 2nd and 3rd. What kind of book would you expect Craig Ferguson to write? (Cannonball Read 10)
Did you ignore me when I said that you should read the greatest obit ever written? Come on! It’ll take 2 minutes. It will be the best thing you read today. (Legacy)
