Dr. Jen and Goop are not friends. - (Lainey)

Sometimes, if I’m feeling super motivated, I’ll use a toner before I glop my face oil on at night, but it’s rare that I take that much time. Liv Tyler’s 25-step skincare routine would exhaust me. But her skin does look pretty great! - (Celebitchy)

Donald Trump has been everywhere at once all the time. Think that’s a lie? HAH! Here’s all the proof you need. - (The Root)

Artist/Professor Ronald Rael made these teeter-totters to pass between the bars of the border wall to play with the children on the other side.

Wait! No, seriously, this is a thing that happened: Not only did that Jake Paul person pretend to get married to some other “personality” person, but thousands of people paid MONEY to watch it? Like, actual cash money? Shut the fuck up! - (Dlisted)

I’m not sure who is the intended consumer of Archie McPhee Fried Chicken and Lobster candies. Junior high school boys? I really don’t know! Someone tell me! - (IB)

Tamron Hall’s dress is not only really cute, but it also reminds me that I didn’t buy a sundress this year and now summer is (thankfully!) mostly over and it’s too late! - (GFY)

I kind of love 62-year-old Kelly McGillis’ response to why she wasn’t asked back for the Top Gun sequel: “I’m old and I’m fat and I look age-appropriate for what my age is, and that is not what that whole scene is about. But … I’d much rather feel absolutely secure in my skin and who and what I am at my age as opposed to placing a value on all that other stuff.” (Uproxx)

God, that’s grim. I feel so sorry for the kids who are growing up now and have to endure lockdowns and active shooter drills. It must be a stressful and scary way to live.

Remember when some people online were making comments about Jason Momoa’s “dad bod”? Jason is clearly bothered by it as he enjoys his Guinness birthday party. - (Buzzfeed)

How can people attending a Broadway show be so tacky as to take a flash-photo during a nude scene onstage? I mean, it’s of Audra McDonald and Michael Shannon, so I get the impulse, but still! Some decorum, please!- (Shadow and Act)

Oooh, speaking of Audra, I think I found a fantastic gift for my 4-year-old niece - A Is for Audra, a picture book featuring iconic theater actresses. - (Broadway)

ElCicco finds reviewing mysteries difficult, but she’s reviewed two of them in advance of #CannonBookClub’s Classics and Retellings. She liked the pace and character development in Arthur Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet, but Sherry Thomas’s gender-bent remix, A Study in Scarlet Women really grabbed her interest. "I think my favorite part of this book is the development of Watson, which I won’t describe because you should just read it." Do you have a favorite retelling of Doyle’s first Holmes and Watson adventure? (Cannonball Read 11)
