It’s “Damn, the cast of Succession can’t stand Jeremy Strong’s method acting” time again. For this latest installment, Nicholas Braun revealed that Strong literally made the cast listen to car crashes that he cobbled together from Transformers and other films to “change the energy in the room.” I know Brian Cox has been on some bullsh*t lately, but I’m starting to get why he’s always free to comment on Strong’s method acting and that comment is usually along the lines of “I f*cking hate it.” (AV Club)

I’m actually on board with this sympathetic take on Meghan McCain being pressured to take Ozempic, but I’m also sympathetic to the commenter who said Meghan is probably making the whole thing up because she needed something to write about for her typically horsesh*t Daily Mail column. (Jezebel)

Meagmms was looking for a book like 2019’s Midsommar when she came across Thomas Tryon’s 1973 pagan folk horror novel, Harvest Home. She was delighted. "While it drags in spots, there were more times I had difficulty putting it down." Which books were memorable even if they weren’t perfect? (Cannonball Read 15)
