Rosario Deserves Better: It Wasn't Even a Good Joke the First Time, Cory Booker!
Yay! There’s a new Celebitchy Podcast episode. - (Celebitchy)
Christgod, this is terrifying. - (The Atlantic)
This is terrifying too, but in a different way. Like, in a oh-shit-I’m-about-to-go-into-debt-aren’t-I way. - (Allure)
Roxana wrote this piece for the Bright Wall/Dark Room 1994 issue about the Iranian film Through the Olive Trees, by cinema legend Abbas Kiarostami. It’s the first time she’s written about Iranian film, and how it overlaps with the uncertainty of living in Iran. - (BWDR)
Look: We like Cory Booker well enough around these parts, and when he says stuff like this, it’s easy to see why:
Chris Matthews: Is Trump a racist?— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) March 18, 2019
Cory Booker: "Racists think he's a racist and his language hurts people. His language is causing pain, fear - the way he's talking is making people afraid." https://t.co/tq4FUhlNXr
Cory Booker on Trump's McCain attacks: "I found it repulsive and just another example of his moral vandalism and him just tearing at the fabric of this country as opposed to bonding us together, he continued to try to pit us against each other." @hardball— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) March 18, 2019
On the other hand, if you follow this thread, you’ll see that Cory Booker has told the same joke on Twitter TWELVE TIMES in 9 years, and it’s NOT EVEN A GOOD JOKE.
we should vet every presidential candidate but digging up their tweets from 2009 is a low blow. every tweet from 2009 is bad.— Anna Fitzpatrick (@bananafitz) March 18, 2019
You think he repeats that joke to Rosario Dawson every morning when they get out of bed? YOU DESERVE BETTER THAN THAT JOKE, ROSARIO. Hell, America deserves better from a Presidential candidate.
I have no idea why LA Magazine wrote an article about how cool Souplantation is and I have no idea why BoingBoing covered it, but I DO KNOW that I goddamn LOVED Souplantation when I lived in San Diego, nearly 20 years ago, and I *still* talk about it all the time. - (BoingBoing)
In YouTube whatthefuckery of the day: Someone named Shane Dawson (I guess he’s someone the youths like?) had to issue a series of tweets to insist that he DID NOT fuck his cat. ‘k. - (DListed)
FUG MADNESS BEGINS!!!!!!! - (GFY)
A different kind of madness, perhaps? Donna Brazile, the former DNC Chair, has joined Fox News. Whaaaaaaat? - (The Root)
And what in the Photoshopping madness is this Once Upon a Time in Hollywood poster? - (Lainey)
Oh, crap, we forgot Saint Gertrude yesterday!
Here’s a really good article on a recent study on misophonia, which is something Kate says she most definitely has! - (NPR)
Having just lost her job, Chloe Silverado was looking for something entertaining but not taxing. Philippa Gregory’s The White Queen fit the bill. "In short, I would recommend this book to my friends who loved The Devil Wears Prada and not necessarily to friends who read biographies." Have you watched the adapted TV series on Starz?
