'SNL' Is Almost Back, and You Could Not Ask for Three Better Hosts
Andy Murray wrote an essay, basically about how women and men are equal and women do the same amount of prep work as men in tennis. He’s apparently getting some shit about it, though, because I guess he didn’t advocate enough for women’s equality. - (Celebitchy)
Assignments like these keep being given to children in schools and I can’t understand what is going on in the heads of these teachers! WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK MAKES THEM THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA? - (Revelist)
Saturday Night Live returns in 9 days, which means that Dustin is going to have to give up clubbin’ on Saturday nights again. Based on their upcoming slate of guests, it’s totally worth it. (Please let Emily cameo, Kumail!)
Soledad O’Brien is a goddamn Queen! God, I love her.
There is a two-tiered system of justice here in America and tonight I’ll explain what I mean #Hannity— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) September 22, 2017

I can’t tell if this means that MiMi and BritBrit have never met before or if they ran into each “this was a first time they’ve met in Vegas since they both have shows there”? Reading comprehension isn’t really my strong suit today. Pssst: I feel like it might not be Mariah’s strong suit any day. - (Dlisted)
If this is true and the ’80s ARE back, please Saint Paul Mitchell, let big damn hair be back too! I don’t want to make this allll about me (hahahahaha, yes I do) but I have such good ’80s mall hair and I just want an excuse to wear it that way again! - (GFY)
This is a super cool story! Taika Waititi and his sister (among many others) helped to translate Moana into Maori for the viewers in New Zealand - (NYT)
Equifax. Equifax. GODDAMMIT, EQUIFAX. How can a company in charge of deciding if others are responsible enough to borrow money be this irresponsible — again? - (Yahoo)
Carey Mulligan is a sparkling little gem. And she’s also a beautiful writer. - (LG)
Dustin’s got the finale wrap-up on USA Network’s The Sinner. It’s a little of this, a little of that. (Uproxx)
Look, you’d either love this or hate this. I can’t really imagine there are a whole lot of people who would be indifferent on this flight. - (Mashable)
Happy Birthday Stephen King! Stephen King has been a favorite author of Cannonballers with at least 232 reviews over the past 9 years. Cannonballers have reviewed his short stories, his non fiction thoughts on writing, his long series, and his stand alone novels. What do you wish for the King of Horror on his 70th?

I’m amazed it’s taken this long for Hollywood to make a movie about Hedy Lamarr, considering how we might not have some of the cellular, wireless, and bluetooth technology we have today were it not for her. It looks like they’re finally heading that way (sort of) with a miniseries. - (THR)
World Leaders: They’re just like 5-year-olds!

Do you miss Game of Thrones? Though the show has outpaced the books’ plot, George RR Martin’s books are worthy in their own right. In his reread, Cannonballer ingres77 most appreciated Martin’s upending of fantasy genre conventions. "The central theme of the series is the dichotomy between expectation and reality…The good guys become bad, the bad become good, and everyone ends up inhabiting some hazy gray area. Heroes fail, villains succeed, and the characters lurking in the background take center stage." (Cannonball Read 9)
