We mustn’t dwell… no, not today. We CAN’T. Not on Fun Internet News day.

That’s right, boners! Instead of rounding up more things to make you curl into yourself like a dying star, I’ve decided to regale you with the good things out there. So let us begin.

I don’t think this needs explaining.

Next up, ThinkGeek has unveiled a Star Wars clothing collection for women. There aren’t many pieces, but they teamed up with Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe.


Channing Tatum (aka Charming Potato) has teamed up with Grand Teton Distillery to make Born and Bred, an 80-proof potato vodka. Irony?

At any rate, Tatum has also been delivering the vodka to lucky people in LA who use alcohol delivery service Saucey.

Wonder Woman 2: Drink Those Man Tears Up has a release date of December 13th, 2019. That’s, like, really far away. However, it is something to look forward to and we all need more things like that. I mean, it will be set in the 1980s during the Cold War! I’m already excited thinking about just the hair!


80% of Thor: Ragnarok was improvised and the “friend from work” line was thought up by a Make A Wish child on set. It’s not surprising since director Taika Waititi’s films What We Do In the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople are improvisational as well. But this is Marvel! This is amazing that they would be cool with Waititi’s method and not attempt to crush him in some Blockbuster Superhero Director mold.

More good news for the flick is Waititi’s current runtime for the film.

Star Trek: Discovery will feature a gay couple. Maybe that’s not enough to get you happy. The couple will be played by gay actors. That is some good news, people.

Anthony Rapp (Rent, Dazed and Confused) will portray Lieutenant Stamets and Wilson Cruz (My So-Called Life) will play Dr. Hugh Culber. Staments is said to be one of the characters the series will focus upon and Culber is his partner.

Charlize Theron’s ass-kicking Atomic Blonde opens July 28th. While you wait, why not create an Atomic Blonde gif? For every gif created, the It Gets Better Project receives a $1 donation. Let’s flood them with dollar bills like we’re Pacman Jones.


So, what good news do you have to share with the class?
