Netflix Is Hacking Your Movies, You Bingewatching Plebes
It’s Winesday Wednesday! I don’t know your life. Every day might be Winesday. Or Beersday. Or MaryJaneDay. Whatever gets you through this darkest timeline. Mine seems to be BuyingShitIDon’tNeedDay.
Busy Phillips of Cougar Town (and BFF of Michelle Williams) and Casey Wilson of Happy Endings (and my imaginary BFF) made a pilot, but it doesn’t look like NBC is going to pick it up, which is CRAZY, because it’s also produced by Tina Fey, and Bradley Whitford from The West Wing and Get Out is also in it and omg, why must networks keep producing idiotic “reality” shows that are NOT real and not shows I personally want to watch? Annnnyway, Busy is pushing for a Twitter campaign to get NBC to pick up the pilot for The Sackett Sisters and you can help! - (EW)
TayTay has a new Brit boy. - (Lainey)
Maybe you won’t think this is a big deal because you’re uncultured riff-raff, but you may not have noticed that Netflix now gives viewers the option of skipping the credit sequences on television shows, but on MOVIES, too, and sometimes, those credit sequences add a lot to your movies. It’s bullshit, as Jason Bailey writes. (Flavorwire)
Donatella Versace better thank the shit out of the makers of Versace: American Crime Story for casting Penelope Cruz to play her, because, yeah, no. Donatella has NEVER looked this good. - (GFY)
The whole Thicke family is squicky, but god help me, I’m on Robin Thicke’s side on this one. (I need a shower after saying that.) - (Dlisted)
So Drake may have some unresolved feelings issues with JLo, I don’t know, but I DO know that treated his cousin and her date to a lovely prom. Awwwww, that’s just sweet. - (Celebitchy)
Johnny Depp’s latest PR doublespeak is not helping. (LG)
Cannonballers were offered an opportunity to read an advance copy of Lawless Lands: Tales from the Weird Frontier, a short story collection of speculative fiction Westerns. Melanir had been eying the collection (Hello Seanan McGuire!) so was delighted to accept the offer. For the most part, she liked the collection, especially the story with the were-jackalope. Have you read anything in this genre? (Cannonball Read 9)
