Daisy Ridley Has Some Thoughts On That 'Rey Is a Mary Sue' Bullcrap
Happy almost Halloween, everybody! Is it too early to start dressing up? I may or may not be writing this while already wearing my Squirrel Girl costume, so I guess you don’t really need to answer that.
Chrissy Teigen dressed her daughter up like a hotdog for early Halloween. I can’t wait for internet jerks to yell at her about the dangers of processed meats. (Elite Daily)
Daisy Ridley has some words for everyone who called Rey a “Mary Sue” (*cough Landis cough*), and I’m sure you can already guess what they are. Did you guess “sexist” and “confused”? Then you were right! (Mary Sue)
OH MY GOD. This man dressed up as his dog’s favorite toy because love is real and dreams do come true.
“Mansplaining” was featured on Jeopardy last night. I think it’s HILLAIRIOUS that of the three contestants, the only man was the one to buzz in. Which is probably for the best, because I imagine if either woman had answered “What is mansplaining?” Trebek would have had to come back with a “Well, actually…” (HuffPo)
A twelfth woman (former Miss Finland) has added her name to the list of those accusing Donald trump of sexual assault. (Guardian)
Pussy Riot has a new music video for their song “Make America Great Again.” It’s got all the disturbing imagery you would expect from both Trump and Pussy Riot, but if you can stomach it, I highly recommend a watch. (Salon)
Dustin’s got more cool Westworld thearies, and some thoughts on fan theories and yarn walls in general. (Hint: he’s pro.) (Uproxx)
A Will & Grace revival might actually be happening. (DListed)
This is beautiful. This guy tried to give Fox News’ Jesse Waters (the Fox News dbag behind that awful Chinatown video) new ideas for segments. Best line: “It’s racist like you like.” (Vox)
Sending you into the weekend with this reminder: “Never Be Ashamed to Just Fucking Love Something.” (Medium)
In 2000, writer Douglas Preston moved his family to a villa in Tuscany so he could work on a new mystery that would take place in Florence. Soon after, he discovered that a clearing near his new house was the scene of a gruesome double murder. The murder was attributed to the Monster of Florence, a serial killer who targeted young couples and was still at large. Preston abandoned his mystery and focused on these murders. Ellesfena gives The Monster of Florence four stars and says, it’s not for the faint of heart. (Cannonball Read 8)
Have a great weekend, everybody! If you’re dressing up, I hope your costume makes you feel both fierce and comfortable. Confidence is key!
