Richard Linklater, good Texan, made this commercial about Ted Cruz, bad Texan. And I am HERE FOR IT. No one likes you, Ted. Your dad and your wife are embarrassed by your lack of conviction and wussitude, Ted. Even your daughter doesn’t want your melted face near her, Ted. You’re not even a real Texan, Ted, much less as tough as one.
You hear that, Ted?
Y’all, please please please please turn out to vote for Beto O’Rourke next month. I just can’t look at Ted Cruz’s gross face for 6 more years.
Daario is probably not coming back to Game of Thrones, but Michiel Huisman will neither confirm nor deny. What must their confidentiality agreements look like for this show?
There is no amount of money you could pay me to make me go into a virtual reality Red Room. Nope nope hell to the nopes.
OK, but what if The Fly was a sitcom?
Stranger Things candy. WANT.
Busy Philips has accused of James Franco of assaulting her on the set of Freaks and Geeks, and calls him a “fucking bully.” Sounds about right.
What is going on over at CBS, guys? I don’t even think I heard about these allegations against Criminal Minds‘ director of photography Greg St. Johns.
Georgia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania and a mystery state have had their licenses pulled by the Miss America pageant for revolting against Gretchen Carlson. Damn. Carlson isn’t playing with y’all.
In your “No Shit, Sherlock” study of the day, girls want more female superheroes.
I never want to talk about Brett Kavanaugh again, but let me assure you, Don, those protestors were all 100% real. More real than your hair, more real than your marriage, more real than your “self-made” “fortune.”
Today is the last day to register to vote in Texas and many other states. Please please please, if you are not registered, listen to your girl, Taylor Swift, and do so today (and remember, Texans, you have to mail that in or deliver it to an appropriate location) and if you are registered, double check one last time to make sure you haven’t been purged. I AM BEGGING ALL OF YOU TO LET DONNIE GRABHANDS KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF HIM IN NOVEMBER.
