Since Cap America Retired, Fighting Nazis Will Be...Taylor Swift's Job?
Because it’s never too late in the day to BAWL YOUR FUCKING EYES OUT. (Twitter)
Taylor Swift explodes Nazi heads, James Gunn works for DC now, Ben Affleck seems fun to date, and John Mulaney calls out Jerry Seinfeld! Mike Redmond does not mess around. (Medium)
Turns out Stephenie Meyer rejected Catherine Hardwicke’s pitch to make Twilight less white. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. Is your hand raised? Tell me true, is your skin sparkling? (IndieWire)
So, Justin Timberlake loves to buy shoes for his lady wife. And if you’re thinking, oh wow, she must have a bunch of Loubs and Choos in her closet, let me shatter that illusion because he says he likes to buy her…Jordans. (Celebitchy).
Sometimes I am oddly and inexplicably consumed by the concept of the first ever bread. Like, what exactly led to the circumstances of grinding wheat berries into flour, adding water to create a dough and then baking that goopy mess into a loaf of bread? This quandary takes entirely too much space in my brain. The Conversation took this concept and applied it to counting. Does anyone else find these thoughts amazing but also frightening? It makes humanity feel so uncertain, feeble, and almost too delicate to have survived. (The Conversation)
The women of Wakanda are back together on the cover of ELLE and they look sublime. (Lainey Gossip)
And Glamour had the “This Is Us” ladies on their cover and they look good…mostly. (GFY)
Is it worth it? Let me work it. Missy ‘bout to put her thing down, flip it and reverse it. (The Root)
LeBron James allows his kids to drink wine and I’m going to go ahead and ask the internet to sit the fuck down about this. The kids in my family were allowed to drink watered-down wine with dinner and it was fiiiiiiiiine. (DListed)
Brie Larson does good Twitter. (Twitter)
I first heard about The Last Unicorn from Patrick Rothfuss, who cited it as his all-time favorite book. So I read it. Twice. And…I didn’t get it? Like, it’s fine as a book, but I guess it just didn’t connect with me. This write up is similarly adoring of the book so now I’m really curious as to what exactly I am missing. (Tor)
Speaking of, this is a great article about why so many fantasy books are set in/obsessed with academia. And I will admit: I am a TOTAL sucker for magic schools. It’s always my favorite part of any fantasy novel. Hogwarts? Check. The University in Four Corners? Yup. Unseen University? Yes please! (Wired)
Remember ’80s star Jami Gertz? Ever wonder what she’s up to these days? Whatever you were imagining, we bet it wasn’t this. (THR)
I mean, how else would a 16th-century king poop but by being lofted above the chamber pot whilst seated on a padded black velvet sheepskin chair with ribbons? (Mental Floss)
Do you recall the story I linked to last Thursday about the Alaskan brown bear that ate 15 salmon in a 3-hour span (which equated to 67,000 calories)? The bear won Katmai National Park and Reserve’s annual Fat Bear contest. Which, OK, fair, but I am not down for bear fat shaming. They did refer to her chubbiness as “her radiant rolls,” which is amazing and should be royal nomenclature. Her Radiant Rolls Beatrice Herington III is far better than Bear 409. (NPR)
In today’s Eat The Rich segment, I bring you this article “Billionaires Are the Leading Cause of Climate Change”. And yes, I anticipate this becoming a regular segment unless Petr called dibs already. (GQ)
Aquillia reads Agatha Christie every year. A tumultuous summer had her searching for any Christies she hadn’t read recently, which led her to the BBC radio plays. "Many of the best are actually adaptations of some well-known, non-Poirot centric ones. Ordeal by Innocence, Crooked House, and And Then There Were None are all very well produced (and have been done for TV recently)." How do you prefer to enjoy your Agatha Christie?
