Every time I think we can be done talking about the absurdity of TayTom Swiffleston, they do something over-the-top hilarious to drag me back in. Today, it’s Calvin Harris’ embarrassing lack of chill and his revenge song lyrics. (Lainey)
True Blood: The Musical as a Broadway show is a terrible, terrible, dumb idea, although I fully admit I might change my mind on that if they somehow convinced Joe Manganiello to perform. (Celebitchy)
Even though it’s animated, I have to warn you that this true story of Alex Landau, a black man who was pulled over by the Denver PD for a traffic violation in 2009, is extremely upsetting. And far too relevant.
Trevor Noah would like to suggest we reconsider term limits. (Uproxx)
We’ll let TK handle this one:
I freaked out here, thinking Janelle Monae’s shoes were PART OF HER JUMPSUIT. Several zooms later, they’re not, but I love this weird, wonderful weather-proofed outfit anyway. (Go Fug Yourself)
This woman stole her daughter’s identity to pose as a high school student, and now we can never enjoy Never Been Kissed again because everything is made of sadness. (Atlantic)
Oh god, I desperately want this to be a real movie. I also want “Records & Dresses” to be a real store, but we can talk about that later.

Meet Nettie Stevens, the scientist in today’s Google Doodle, who discovered (and, of course, was refused credit for) XY sex chromosomes. (Vox)
You can’t really go wrong with Douglas Adams, but Cannonballer Jak recommends the Dirk Maggs audiobook production of the Dirk Gently novels. "Harry Enfield (Men Behaving Badly, Kevin & Perry Go Large) is spot-on as Dirk Gently, Billy Boyd (Merry in the LOTR movies) is suitably Scottish and bumbling as Richard MacDuff, and there could be no other choice for Janice Pearce than Olivia Colman (Green Wing, Broadchurch, everything ever). And reader: they are excellent." (Cannonball Read 8)
