Creepy semi-name-droppy comment coming, but.... I went to school with one of the stars mentioned in this article and I am SO FORKING HAPPY to see them flourishing and finding success. Watching someone be authentically themselves back in the day even when the world wasn’t ready, and then to look up and they’re on TV Read more

Damn you for posting the whole audio book. I just got sucked into listening for nearly 20 minutes. I had no idea these were on YouTube. I spent a lot of allowance money on SVH books back in the 80s. Although after listening to the first part of this and reflecting on how awful these books were, “wasted” might be a Read more

Similarly, it’s hard to imagine how a small rental service will help address “environmental concerns,” as the BoF piece suggests.

Unintentional (completely intentional?) positive side effect of the new format - Ditching the Tweets also ditches the G/O Media-mandated ads between every one, so Barf Bag is no longer crashing from Herbaceous ad overload on my iPad (though it still mandates an ad every 2 paragraphs, so I still got 3 autoplay Dolly Read more

(1) He didn’t “rewrite the constitution” so he could be re-elected forever. He petitioned the highest court in Bolivia, a duly constituted court, to rule that the then-existing term limits were invalid, and that court, fully within its authority, ruled that, in fact, those term limits were invalid. Was it some Read more

The Latin Grammys still exist because the White Grammys can’t have brown people showing everyone up on the red carpet. This was 1000% less boring that every other red carpet this year.

I realized yesterday that Ricky Martin (or any other Latino) has never been picked People’s Sexiest Man Alive. If that doesn’t show the whole thing is a sham, I don’t know what does.
