I’m just as shocked as you are that this story has any sort of legs whatsoever, but trust me when I say that Daryl Hall getting a restraining order against John Oates is somehow the biggest trending entertainment story of the day. There are barely any details, but people are eating this thing up. I always thought the internet skewed younger than my old ass, but this changes everything. (Variety)

I know I’m screaming into the void here, but dammit, I’m going to do it anyway. Early this morning, an unsourced and uncorroborated tweet from a bullsh*t aggregator account called PopTingz claimed that Jenna Ortega asked to be let out of her Scream contract because of the firing of Melissa Barrera. Naturally, the tweet immediately started trending because even before Elon, that platform hasn’t met a narrative it won’t consider the gospel truth if it confirms enough priors. Again, that tweet was the single source of rumors that Ortega was quitting because of Barerra, and yet that was enough to lock a bullshit conspiracy theory into the zeitgeist. Good luck getting anyone to accept the truth that Jenna Ortega is a busy actress who already had her foot out on the door on Scream before the strikes even started. In fact, her leaving probably made it easier to ditch Barerra, albeit in the stupidest way possible. Who the hell thought any of that would go over well? C’mon. (Rolling Stone)

Faintingviolet had been moving Gabriel García Márquez on and off her reading list for years and finally decided to try a short story. “‘The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World’ isn’t very long at all-less than 2,500 words. García Márquez packs a punch with each and every one of those words.” Is there an author you’ve wanted to read but have been too intimidated to pick up? (Cannonball Read 15)
