  1. Taylor Hawkins has died. Foo Fighters put out a brief statement just now. They're touring in South America.
  2. I've been binging the first few seasons of Queen of the South, which stars Peter Gadiot aka Adam. It's too bad Adam died because I like the actor a lot. Also wasn't expecting this:
  3. I tried the Crescent City stuff and I just could not. As lady narcissa says, the best part of her books are the female friendships. Her male characterization is way OTT (and OTP too) though Rhysand started off pretty great but uh, well you'll see. I skipped the second to last book in Throne of Glass series because so long and full of who cares characters. (It was supposed to be a novella!) I'll read the next Court of book but she'll have to come up with something far catchier to lure me into a new series. Speaking of Persephone and Hades, I think I'll start Neon Gods by Katee Robert.
  4. *throws snowball at blockades and protesters* *looks at watch* Well, we tried *everything*. Not-quite-War-Measures-Act it is.
  5. Colin Kaepernick would like a word on *checks notes* This quote pulled from the Canadian politics thread. Anyhoo, let's go waaaaay back and discuss the inherent cancel culture in Salem, Massachusetts circa 1692ish. Now THAT was a deplatforming.
  6. MLB won't do shit. Infuriating. Sad news about Jeremy Giambi. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/33254989/former-mlb-player-jeremy-giambi-dies-47
  7. Station Eleven Hamlet is the best Hamlet. I wasn't sure I loved all the changes, particularly characterizations (plural), though I recognized the need in some cases. In the end I loved it as much as the book, recognizing they are complimentary versions of each other. Amazed they cast Gael Garcia Bernal in what was a minor character on-screen but the central bond in the whole thing.
  8. Nona has a cover! https://www.vox.com/culture/22901210/nona-the-ninth-cover-reveal-tamsyn-muir-interview-locked-tomb-series
  9. There's an anti-vaccine mandate rally and march going on here in DC, two days after the annual March for Life was held here Friday. I'll let that sink in for a bit. Anyways, it's a rich and succulent stew of stupid. Anti-vaxxers like RFK Jr, libertarians (thanks for all the promotional advertising on your podcast Joe Rogan), anti-abortion leftovers, anti-maskers, horse paste chewers, and of course the Proud Boys. I wish it had stayed in the teens and low twenties, temperature-wise. I fucking hate living here sometimes. Can only imagine the nightmare it's been for hospitality workers given you've needed to show proof of vaccination at bars and restaurants since last weekend.
  10. Nope. https://screenrant.com/yellowjackets-jackie-movie-journal-no-mistake-response/
  11. So now we know who *didn't* die in that opening sequence of the pilot. There's a lot to unpack but I'd like to point out the folly that was the electric kitchen knife. Not a fucking chance that's happening.
  12. @RumHam I don't think it's a memorial case in that regard. Javi and Travis weren't on the team so it makes sense they would be in separate photos. And wasn't Akilah added to replace injured Allie? So same.
  13. I did not <sigh> and now it's full price again. I need to work on not overthinking potentially fun purchases.
  14. I don't need this, right? Right? https://www.urbandecay.com/urban-decay-cosmetics/naked-cyber-eyeshadow-palette/ud1066.html
  15. I'm just here for Henry Cavill. I generally have no use for him but this Witcher thing works.
  16. I have a question about the final episode of Season 1 - didn't we see Vilgefortz straight up murder an ally? So he's a traitor? But it's never really touched upon again in Season 2.
  17. So great! https://www.npr.org/2021/12/28/1068417547/the-nations-capital-is-the-worst-place-for-covid-19-infections-right-now DC started handing out rapid tests at 8 public library branches beginning last Wednesday - 2 lots per person per day, DC residents with ID only. So there's that I guess.
  18. https://www.reuters.com/business/aerospace-defense/delta-ceo-asks-cdc-cut-quarantine-time-breakthrough-covid-cases-2021-12-21/ Huh.
  19. I need to stay away from r/Yellowjackets. Anyways, maybe Van didn't die.
  20. I don't think they eat Van, at all. But it will certainly escalate whatever is going on with Tai. Also, Tai had taken the bone thing off Van. It was the first thing I noticed when she came to in the tree. I am more and more convinced they never turned to cannibalism but instead sacrificed/spilled blood for the 'spirit' or whatever Lottie sees and hears and she will ultimately be our antler queen. Good call on MC's part re: Jeff.
  21. This is the role Henry Cavill was born to play. I cannot believe how much I am enjoying this show.
