Marc Maron Calls Out 'Woke Culture' Comments Made By His 'Joker' Director, Todd Phillips
All I’ve wanted was for it to be cool enough for me to turn off the AC and open the windows. It’s finally that day! However. There’s a cricket outside that has been non-stop chirping for 9 hours. My head is ready to explode, so PL might be kind of sparse tonight. Blame stupid nature, OK?!

BunchesOfBecky likes a classic murder mystery, and Lisa Jewell’s The Third Wife wasn’t that. Maya’s death seems like an accident, but her widowed husband, Adrian, has questions.
