Sarah’s got the full rundown on Johnny Depp’s appearance at Comic-Con, and you can bet your ass she brought the heat. (Lainey)

MIEKA’S BACK! Both here (later tonight), and over on Dlisted, where she assessed the new R. Kelly song. “I made it through 7 minutes, 46 seconds before my bowels got all liquidy.” (Dlisted)

With everything else going on in Stormy Daniels’ world, she’s also getting a divorce (I did not know she was married).

Sleeve pants sound like a terrible idea, but if you’re Lily James, you can pull it off. (GFY)

Paul Manafort’s trial will start in 8 days. A judge also has just granted immunity to 5 people who will testify against him. Those names have been released (I don’t know who they are). Manafort is dead to rights, and the only reason he hasn’t settled is because he’s likely holding out for a pardon.

Chris Pine’s dance here with Gal Gadot? Spectacular. His outfit? I dunno. That’s A LOT of color. (LG)

To be honest, the ongoing battle between the moderate and progressive wings of the Democratic party makes my stomach queasy, and I’m terrified because I worry that the division will give Trump another four years. I live in Maine, where we’ve had a horrendous Governor for 8 years because moderates and progressives split their votes. On the other hand, James Comey, get the fuck outta here, carpetbagger! You can’t walk into our house and tell us where to put the fucking couch. (Wonkette)

Here’s another terrific piece on the transformation of the GOP from the party of Lincoln to the party of racists. The good news here is only 26 percent of Americans now identify as Republicans. The bad news? 90 percent of Republicans enthusiastically support a racist, which decisively makes it the party of racism. (The Root)

And you know what? There’s not a goddamn thing that can be done to change those attitudes, even by some of the party leaders. However, when people like Flake and Corker speak out, it does matter. (538)


And about that?

“Why Isn’t Jason Momoa Fully Unclothed in Aquaman?” Fair question. (Jezebel)


I saw the Foo Fighters over the weekend in Fenway Park. It was a terrific show. Also, Dave Grohl’s daughter, Violet, performed as a backup singer. Apropos of that, here she is with her sister, Harper, singing along with Dave on “The Sky is a Neighborhood.” I’m putting it here because it brings me joy, especially when Violet rolls her eyes at Dad during the solo at the end.

You know that video of the bald guy stealing a baseball from a kid that everyone raged about over the weekend? Well, about that … (Deadspin)

Faintingviolet does not read comics, but she needed to step out of her comfort zone and read a comic book for a Read Harder challenge. She chose John Jackson Miller’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Vol. 1: Commencement. "Here’s the thing I learned about myself and my Star Wars fandom while reading this: I really and truly do love the world of Star Wars, not just the characters of the original trilogy." Do you have a favorite fictional universe? (Cannonball Read 10)
