Donald Trump has officially been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. That’s the world we live in now. Apparently someone really admires his goals of creating peace by spreading hate towards Muslims and building big walls. (Mary Sue)

Gwyneth Paltrow keeps telling the story of how she’s “completely self-made.” She’s brought this up in interviews before, and it never ceases to make my eyes roll all the way back into my head. Sure, I get that she went to a relatively (to her family’s income and status) modest university, and that when she dropped out to be an actor, her parents didn’t financially support you. But being a COMPLETELY self-made person is about more than just money. Paltrow’s first movie was directed by her father. Another early role was in a movie starring her acting legend of a mother. Hell, even before that, when she was 18, she was in Hook, directed by her godfather Steven Spielberg. Completely self-made people don’t have Steven Spielberg for a godfather, putting them in his movies. But she had to dig in the couch for quarters for Starbucks, so sure. Just like us. What moxie.

Yesterday was the anniversary of Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s tragic death. The incredible Nathan Rabin’s deep retrospective is a tribute you’ll want to visit with. (The Dissolve)

I know that retrospective was a long, powerful read, but if you’ve got it in you to tackle another, this look at why we won’t let Winona Ryder grow up is absolutely brilliant. It’s not all the typical Hollywood starlet pigeonholing you may expect. I mean, it’s some of that. But she also represents such a strong Holden Caulfield teenage angst nostalgia that it’s hard to acknowledge that kind of icon as an actual person. (Hazlitt)

If male scientists were written about the way female scientists (or women of any profession) are. To be fair, Oliver Sacks can pretend I’m a hat any day. (BuzzFeed)

I did not and will never click through this link to see pictures of an “Ancient Daddy Longlegs Preserved in Amber With Boner Fully Half the Size of His Body.” However, if any brave souls feel so inclined, have at it. (Jezebel)

This musical theatre video game is too adorable. (Inverse)

Until now, the only Ray Bradbury that jeverett15 read was high school assignment, Fahrenheit 451. For CBR8, he ventured into The Martian Chronicles and says "There isn’t a wrong note in the entire collection. These are stories that will astonish you with their creativity. The philosophical dilemmas they present will make you think. They are dazzling." Which Bradbury works have you read? (Cannonball Read 8)
