Are you ready for the Game of Thrones premiere? I’ve got snacks. I’ve got wine. I even have a new soundbar. Buuuuuuuuut I don’t remember anything from last season besides Dany’s amazing white coat. Anyone else need a refresher? (Vulture)

Y’all. We have to talk. I tried a Cadbury Creme Egg for the first time in my life last weekend, and could not for the life of me understand why these things are so popular. It’s tasteless sugar goop inside low-quality chocolate. Is this like a national prank that everyone is in on? And what even is Peeps? And BUNNY CORN?! are. you. joking. Easter candy needs to shape up. (Mental Floss)

USA Today investigated the process of writing laws, and while the conclusion isn’t surprising, it’s a good reminder of how corporations have taken over this process. (USA Today)

Related to the above link, here is a deep dive into Rupert Murdoch’s influence. (NYTimes)

And because things come in threes, here is another article about how corporations are taking over higher education. (HuffPost)

This is unbelievably cool: a fossil of a four-legged whale (!) with hooves (!!) has been found. (The Guardian)

Mother of dragons, what in the Westerosi hell is Emilia Clarke wearing?! (GFY)

Remember that Nazi salute prom photo? This is about how the town’s residents are responding to the backlash. (Buzzfeed News)

The stories the British tabloids have published about Meghan Markle have been astonishing, to say the least, but this one, about the Queen cutting Meghan’s access to the Royal Jewels, is just so stupid. Tabloid writers must be really bored, no? (Celebitchy)

Speaking of the Royals, Lainey speculates what the American tabloids publishing the William Is Cheating story means for the British press. But I’m still over here, chuckling over the whole “Turnip Toffs” thing. (Lainey Gossip)

I mean, we all know our cats are ignoring us, but now we know for suresies. (New Scientist)

Loath am I to link to a story about anything Bachelor-related, but my god THIS FUCKING DICKWEASEL RIGHT HERE wants women to throw out period underwear. He’s just a virgin who can’t drive. (Dlisted)

This article asks such an important question: What happens when it’s time to stop taking psychiatric drugs? (The New Yorker)

I know I link to a lot of stories about Influencers, but this “profession” needs to die a thousand painful deaths, so I enjoy snark-reading about them. Including this article about a small business owner standing up to the industry practice of exchanging free hotel stays for sponsored posts. (NYTimes)

Let’s talk about the media. I had to unsubscribe to several beloved news programs over the last couple of years because I couldn’t stand to listen to RussiaGate every single day. For daily pods, I’m left with PBS NewsHour (always and forever amen) and The Daily, and a couple of weekly lefty pods. What are all yous guys listening to? MSNBC is failing me big time. (The New Republic)

Carriejay is trying to read the books on her shelf this year. Her most recent pick, Judith Claire Mitchell’s A Reunion of Ghosts, is about three sisters living together in a Manhattan apartment. "The book is told for the most part by all three sisters at once. It is ‘we’ and ‘us’ not ‘I’, which can take a little getting used to. But it especially works when they go on to tell the story of their ancestors." Do you tend to buy and then not read books, or have you read most of the books you own? (Cannonball Read 11)
