WHY WOULD YOU EVEN JOKE ABOUT KILLING DOBBY?
Rudy Giuliani and Judith Nathan, his third wife, are getting divorced. You should read this refresher about what went down at the end of his second marriage. That history is prime for a Lifetime movie because it contains all the goodies: cheating, refusing to move out, gay roommates, an injunction. Local Chicago politics seems quaint compared to this! (Celebitchy)
Steven Spielberg said he was open to a woman taking over the Indiana Jones role, so the AV Club did a post of their dream casting. Me? I want to see Dichen Lachman get the role. What’s your dream casting for a female Indy? (AV Club)
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the best of Chrises, it was the worst of Chrises. (Lainey Gossip)
Also at Lainey, the perfect couple you didn’t even know was a couple is no longer a couple. (Lainey Gossip)
So I know that allegedly Brad Pitt is into art and architecture and stuff. God knows he went through that pretentious artistic scarf phase. Rumor has it that he’s getting cozy with an MIT architecture professor. Which, fine, whatever. But by god, if he marries again, no one let him design the engagement ring, because the one he made for Angelina Jolie was an atrocity. (Dlisted)
Naomie Harris looks like a goddess. That is all. (GFY)
My apologies for not linking to this yesterday. Here is a wonderful tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. from Stevie Wonder, including Barack and Michelle Obama, Paul McCartney, Meryl Streep, and Bruce Springsteen, among many others. (Rolling Stone)
There have only ever been two games that have sucked me in so completely, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Spyro the Dragon. The latter is getting remastered for its 20th anniversary, and oh god, now I’m going to have to buy everything so I can play it. (Nerdist)
Marc Jacobs proposed to his boyfriend inside a Chipotle. Do you think they charged him extra for guac? (Eater)
The Government Accountability Office found that, surprise! (/s), school is racist. (The Root)
As you might have noticed, sass is very much my brand, so I really appreciate this post about rebranding poverty. I am truly so sick of reading article after article written by someone younger than me, telling me how easy it is to be frugal and save money or retire really early, only to see a couple paragraphs in that said writer’s parents paid for college/rent/expenses. That’s not being frugal or thrifty or smart. That’s called being lucky and privileged. (The Guardian)
Marvin Gaye had the voice of a goddamn angel. ANGEL. (Twitter)
You guys, Moana has brothers! Seven of them! (EW)
If you are a fan of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, you can’t escape the influence of H. P. Lovecraft. Nyx’s book group paired Lovecraft’s short story "The Horror at Red Hook" with Victor LaValle’s The Ballad Of Black Tom. Lovecraft’s story, though well-told, was predictably racist; but LaValle used that racism to deepen the horror. "LaValle understands we don’t need the old gods to awake to experience horror, we simply need to turn a mirror to ourselves." What other books have reclaimed and rescued a problematic story?

This is #1 savage but also #2 so sad *soobbb* oh my god, why would you bring that back up, no I am not over it, I will never be over it, you shut up.
#TBT Me and the scene-stealing elfin superhero formerly known as Dobby (pre-sockgate). Now current Attorney General of the USA, oddly. Thought I'd killed the little bastard.#HarryPotter @HarryPotterFilm pic.twitter.com/nKDFf12hBS— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) April 5, 2018
