Happy International Women’s Day!

Here are 25 quotes about power from female leaders. My favorite is #3 from RBG. (The Cut)

And here is a list of 15 women who deserve their own biopics. Do you have any additions? (Mental Floss)

One more! This is a really lovely piece about 15 remarkable, overlooked women. (NYTimes)

I consider this good news for women: NBC might be ending Megyn Kelly’s show. BYE, FELICIA. (Dlisted)

Michael B. Jordan’s production company will have inclusion riders on all projects. That’s fantastic news! (Celebitchy)

Dustin already covered the departure of TJ Miller from Silicon Valley, but this post goes into other problems on the show, mainly the lack of women. I really enjoyed the first few seasons, but the show has become a bit stale. I’ll keep watching because Gilfoyle is great, but I’d love to see more of Monica. (Lainey Gossip)

Remember when Terry Crews spoke out about his own sexual assault and went after his abuser? LA prosecutors have determined the statute of limitations has expired. After less than two years. Meaning we’ve got a whole new front to fight sexual abuse on. (Vulture)

From Dark Angel to Profiler to Alias to Firefly to Angel to Hannibal to now finally her very on own show, Gina Torres’s Suits spinoff is official. Yeah, baby! (Shadow and Act)

Mark Hamill got a Hollywood star today (just now?!) and what Harrison Ford said about Carrie Fisher will give you all the feels. Sniff. (The Wrap)

I love navy. And I love preppy. And I love JCrew. And I think Meghan Markle is stunning. So basically everything happening here is my jam. (GFY)

Due to the staggering shortage of mobster movies and TV shows 🙄, The Sopranos will be getting a prequel. (Listen, I liked The Sopranos very much, but come on now.) (Deadline)

These fruit and vegetable carvings are beautiful (and so much better than book carvings; do not get me started on those), but I really hope someone eats them. (Atlas Obscura)

While teachers in America are striking to make a livable wage, doctors in Canada are striking because their raises are too high. What a fucking world. (CNN)

Do you want to see a Princess Shuri doll? Of course you want to see a Princess Shuri doll! (Blavity)

Our beloved Overlord Seth is kicking ass over at Atom. (Are you using their app? If not, shame on you!) The startup raised more than $60 million to take on Fandango. (Variety)

Sometimes it’s nice to dig into a lengthy, sprawling fantasy series. But most of the time? I love a good standalone fantasy story. No sequels. No prequels. Just one story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. Something you can close the back cover on, sigh with contentment, and walk away satisfied. Here is a list of six such books. (Tor)

A crystal clear river that runs through a Brazilian rainforest recently flooded due to heavy rainfall and the video of said forest is stuhh.ning. (IFLSCience)

I laughed at this headline because it’s so wrong: “Coffee Snobs Will Never Love You, Starbucks”. I am a coffee snob, and I love Starbucks. And I’m talking about coffee. Black coffee. No sugar. No milk. No coffee-flavored milkshakes. Just good old plain coffee. In fact, it’s all I brew at home (Yukon blend 4life.) But yeah, I don’t know why Starbucks is trying to push their Blonde roast so hard. It isn’t very good. (Eater)

In Thinking Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman illustrates his research on cognitive bias and the way the brain works with exercises - disconcerting if you are listening to the audiobook version. Maybe the book was a game changer a few years ago, but slainte has found his ideas about the framing effect and anchoring have “thoroughly infiltrated” her world. (Cannonball Read 10)
