The horrific fire in England last night took the lives of at least 12 people, with many others injured, and obviously has left so very many without a place to live and with nothing but the clothes on their backs. If you’re looking for place to help, a fundraiser has been established for the residents of the Grenfell Tower. - (

If you have kids, and you’re looking for a great book, check out this great list of Hayao Miyazaki’s favorite children’s books. (H/T Hillary!) (OpenCulture)

Christgod, United, do your employees actually sit through an anti-customer service class during your training? This happened two years ago, so clearly United has been hiring stellar employees for at least the last couple of years, but is just now coming to light. A United customer service agent pushes a 71-year-old man backward, where the man then lies unmoving and unconscious and no one from United even bothers to yell, “SIR, SIR, YOU CAN’T LAY THERE, SIR” much less even goes over to check on him. Oh, so that guy is suing for a million bucks now. - (Mashable)

Ok, I can only speculate, but I have to guess that there are a MINIMUM of 748 full-length mirrors between the Kardasherjenners and the Hadids (still don’t know who they are or why. Still wouldn’t be able to pick them out of a crowd of 3) and yet not a one of them knows how to dress herself in anything that flatters them. HOW is this possible? I could have linked to any of the hideous ensembles, but I chose this one strictly because the comment made me blow an extremely attractive snot bubble. - (GFY)

Is anyone actually *excited* about the new Spider-Man: Homecoming? I wouldn’t say I’m excited, but I do want to see it. But really? I want to see Zendaya and Tom Holland being all adorable on talk shows, because, come on, they are seriously cute! - (LG)

On the other hand, now I’m kind of looking forward to the next X-Men installment - (Vanity Fair)

Hannah will have a full recap of The Handmaid’s Tale season finale tomorrow morning. This is just how that final scene of the season compares to the final scene in the book, and what it may tell us about season two. (Uproxx)

There’s not a single thing on this list that I wouldn’t eat, but what really caught my eye was at the bottom: Moe’s breakfast bowls! Yes, please, I would like that, thank you. - (Impulsive Buy)

I miss Craig Ferguson’s show. I loved when he would have Shirley Manson on. I like hearing her talk. She’s hilarious and smart and should be more popular than she is. - (Celebitchy)

Variety has a big piece up tonight on the making of The Mummy, or rather how Tom Cruise made it practically all by himself, transforming The Mummy from “a scary summer popcorn movie into a standard-issue Tom Cruise vehicle.” (Variety)

Does it feel like the 1830s all over again? Well, it does if you look at the sleeves! - (The Hairpin)

OMG, I love Ilana and Abbi so much. SO. MUCH. - (Dlisted)

Carly Lane has a lot of thoughts about 1997’s Batman and Robin, like: “Batman pulls out a Bat-credit card that NEVER EXPIRES. I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS, but namely: How did he apply for his own credit card without a Social Security number? WHO ACCEPTS A BATCARD?” (Blastr)
