Act I: Harvey Weinstein is trying to use his non-abuse of Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence as a trial strategy. I’m not a lawyer, but I’m pretty certain that’s not how it works. (Dlisted)

Act II: Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence are fighting back. Meryl Street called Weinstein “pathetic and exploitative” and Jennifer Lawrence said “This is what predators do, and it must stop.” (Vulture)

Act III: Weinstein apologizes. (Deadline)

Trump declared that school shootings could be prevented if we armed teachers. Teachers have responded on Instagram with the hashtag #ArmMeWith. And shocker: they don’t want guns in their classrooms. (Instagram)

Eric Greitens, the Republican Governor from Missouri, has been charged with a felony for invasion of privacy. Missouri’s last election sounds a bit messy: Greitens was a Democrat-turned-Republican, and he ran against a Republican-turned-Democrat Chris Koster. What even is this. (Chicago Tribune)

A friend of mine is very sentimental and throughout our 15+ year friendship, she’s kept all sorts of notes, letters, and cards I’ve written to her, to my complete horror. She and Jennifer Aniston have this in common apparently, since it’s being “reported” that Justin Theroux came across an old post-it note Brad Pitt wrote to Jen. This is all tabloid nonsense, right? (Celebitchy)

Timothée Chalamet’s “personal god” is Kid Cudi. My personal god is a personal-sized pizza. Youths have a lot to learn. (Lainey Gossip)

I love this piece about the myth of the invincible NRA. Why the Democratic Party refuses to go all-out on this issue baffles me. (The Week)

Tor has this great post titled “Why Did it Take Me So Long to Read This?” Do you have any books like that? I read The Book Thief a couple of years ago and I am still angry with myself that it took me so long to read it, because that book is pure magic and beauty and all that is good in this world. (Tor)

Poor Quincy Jones. His daughters told him to STFU and he had to apologize for his “wordvomit”. (The Daily Beast)

This might be the year of great movie soundtracks. First, it was Black Panther, now it’s Wrinkle In Time. (Black Girl Nerds)

Remember four days ago when Trump called Oprah “insecure” and “biased and slanted” (the man’s projections are next-level)? She responded on Ellen. (The Cut)

I used to watch The Cutting Edge on repeat and at that age, I never questioned the validity of the plot. But just how difficult would it be for an amateur hockey player to become a figure skating gold medalist? Predictable answer is predictable: don’t quit your day job. (Nerdist)

The poster for The Forgiven has been released. Eric Bana looks like he could be Adam Scott’s twin! (Shadow and Act)

Does a book made up of wallpaper samples pique your interest? No? How about if I tell you that it’s a deadly book of wallpaper samples? (Atlas Obscura)

What would you do if you found a spy camera in your backyard? A Texan rancher (and an attorney) found one on his land and boy howdy, this should be interesting. (Gizmodo)

This profile on Janelle Monáe and her new album Dirty Computer is really good. (The Guardian)

A new study suggests that fumes from cleaning products are just as bad as smoking. Pro tip: white vinegar diluted with water is the best cleaner for nearly everything. And cheaper too. (Mental Floss)

What’s worse for your brain: alcohol or pot? Science answers! (IFLScience)

Moncler’s showed puffer-coat gowns at the London Fashion Week. So warm! So cozy! I need one, obviously. (GFY)
