Dustin was kind enough to fill in for me last night (Thank you, Mr. Rowles!) because I was celebrating my 7th wedding monthaversary! And what does one do for the 7th month? Mexican food and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It was really good and if you haven’t seen it, I strongly encourage you to see it. If you have seen it and you’ve been yelling that people should see it and now you’re reading this thinking, “OMG, I FUCKING TOLD YOU MONTHS AGO TO SEE IT!” STOP YELLING AT ME! I’m slow and dumb sometimes, but I’m totally onboard with your suggestion NOW, OK?
Senator Dean Heller came out against Trumpcare today, which could strike a major blow to the bill’s chances. He’s a moderate, and it was his words as much as his lack of support that may doom the bill: “”I cannot support a piece of legislation that takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans,” he said. It provides an opening, anyway, and some hope that other moderate Republicans will join him. In the meantime, a Trump PAC is unhappy with Heller and has decided to spend $1 million in television ads this weekend opposing Heller’s decision. Will it change his mind? (NYTimes)
Heller could be the only guy standing in the way of 18,000 - 28,000 deaths in 2026.
Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they're the death party. https://t.co/jCStfOaBjy— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 23, 2017
Even if I’m a Democrat in Nevada, I might consider voting for Heller next year if he can put a stop to this.

I don’t know what the Twitch channel is, but it feels like it has to do with gaming, maybe? I don’t know. However, if you’re a fan of MST3K, the Twitch channel will be airing all episodes in a marathon starting on Monday the 26th. - (Variety)
OMG, there are some seriously amazing hats in here (and some… um, not) from Royal Ascot. I want to go there and wear a Flamingo on my head and call it a hat! - (GFY)
It is one thing when your boss or someone calls you out and tells you, “Um, no. You’re wrong.” It another thing entirely when NASA(!) does it! Gwynnie, either get more involved with whatever goop is doing or take your name off that shiz, because you are looking super dumb and damn shady, girl. - (Dlisted)
In this week’s season finale of Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk had to eat Doritos for the first time in 30 years. They blew. his. mind. (Uproxx)
Seeing ALLLLL of Trump’s lies here (actually, not all of them, just the ones since he was inaugurated. Christ.) in black and white, it’s nauseating. You might want to print it out and laminate it for your Trump-defending family or friends who still call Hillary a liar, but support this shitweasel. - (NYT)
I think it’s fine that Kirsten is getting a Star (but ever since finding out that pretty much anyone can get one if they have the money for it, the whole Walk of Fame has lost its luster) and it’s cool that her mom is really happy, but what *I’M* personally happy about (because, really, it’s all about me) is that she calls her fiance Jesse “Landry”! Hahahahahaha! Oh, god, that’s adorable. #TexasForever. #Crucifictorious!- (Lainey)
Hey, so there’s going to be a Downton Abbey movie. Does anyone even care at this point or is it just me? I’m sure there are people who didn’t get enough of it while it was on, but I got bored in the middle of the 3rd season. - (Celebitchy)
Traditional economics assumes we make decisions rationally, but do we? Are we more rational with big ticket decisions? KimMiE", a marketing professional, was asked to read behavioral economist Dan Ariely’s Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions, by her boss. The answer is no, we’re pretty irrational in our economic decisions, and marketers know this and play to it. You should probably read this one too. (Cannonball Read 9)
I’m gonna’ go relax and read now. All y’all go relax too! If you need a guide to show you, these little otter babies here can give you an idea of how to get started. - (TDO)
