An incomplete list of people who can fuck right off.

Pro-tip I could have used a long time ago:

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, our idiot Governor here in Texas, Greg Abbott, tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. This, after he has fought mask and vaccine mandates tooth and nail. This after he has received THREE shots (even though that protocol will not begin happening for regular people until September). This after the state requested five more mortuary trucks from the federal government. This after he is actively suing school districts to prevent them from protecting our children who are not able to be vaccinated even once, much less THREE TIMES. This after he’s lectured all of us about “personal responsibility.”

Fuck this guy. Just … fuck him.

Last week:


A 42-year-old mother and her 49-year-old husband died of COVID within two weeks of each other in Galveston, leaving behind four children. Neither of them was vaccinated. And in Florida, four teachers in Broward County died of COVID-19 within a 24-hour period. Three of them were not vaccinated. Also in Florida, 5,599 students and 316 staff members are in quarantine in ONE SCHOOL DISTRICT after one week of school. I am furious and exhausted and terrified for what happens in the next couple of weeks.

Because Houston ISD, the largest school district in the state, returns to school on Monday. HISD, along with many other school districts in our state, have issued mask mandates in defiance of our idiot Governor’s orders. Horrifically, the Texas Supreme Court has temporarily agreed with Abbott to block those mandates, but maybe the Paris ISD has the right idea: make masks a part of the dress code? You know, like the dress codes that prohibit too-short shorts and spaghetti straps? Genius.

The other big virus news is that we will be encouraged to get a third shot beginning eight months after you received your second shot (this being for Pfizer and Moderna — more research is being done for Johnson & Johnson). Of course, if you’re Greg Abbott, feel free and get that fourth or fifth shot, YOU FUCKING HYPOCRITE.

An incomplete list of other people who can fuck off:

And did you hear about the thing where Rand Paul’s wife invested in a company that makes a drug to treat COVID-19, and he neglected to mention it for 16 months while at the same time! he loudly and very publicly argued against masks and vaccines. Hey, you know what Rand Paul and his wife can do? They can fuck off.

WarnerMedia is requiring the vaccine for their employees.

Blumhouse is requiring vaccinations for their employees and across productions.

And wearing visible proof of their vaccination status could be coming to film and TV productions soon. GOOD. LET’S DO THIS. EVERYWHERE, DAMMIT.

Foo Fighters are requiring their audiences show proof of vaccine or a negative test result.

Stevie Nicks has canceled her tour.

The Hollywood Critics Association has canceled its in-person awards ceremony.

National Geographic has canceled their in-person Emmy showcase.

And The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is canceling its trip to Telluride for the Sundance Film Festival.

Jared Padalecki is now trying to claim that his pissy tweet about not being involved in Jensen Ackles’ Supernatural prequel series was not actually him being pissy (his actual words) but just trying to let fans know he was not involved with the project. OH. SURE. OK. THIS IS HIM TOTALLY NOT BEING PISSY:

Wait … why?

One America News Network fucked around and found out that they actually owe Rachel Maddow $250,000.

Mediaite confirms what my own unscientific poll concluded: most people wanted LeVar Burton to be the new host of Jeopardy!


Brendan Hunt, better known as Coach Beard was on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, promoting Ted Lasso, whatever. However, it was through this interview that I learned that he and Seth Meyers met each other during their time in Amsterdam working at an English-speaking sketch/improvisational comedy troupe called, unfortunately, “Boom Chicago.” Not only that, but they were part of a generation of comedians that included: Amber Ruffin, Jordan Peele, Jason Sudekis, and Ike Barinholtz. Why is this the first time I’m hearing any of this?

Laura Prepon is no longer a Scientologist and hasn’t been one in five years. Good for her.

Hope everything is OK, Alyssa Milano!



  • Everything’s Gonna Be OK is not going to be OK. Freeform has canceled the series after two seasons.
  • The Real Housewives of Dallas appears to have been canceled after five seasons. I mean, it’s not OFFICIALLY canceled, but it’s not returning for season six anytime soon ever.

  1. I need some advice. I have the entire first season of Clarice on the DVR and I need to make some cuts before Fall TV comes back. It seems very unclear if it’s going to be brought back. Is it good enough to burn through S1 even if it’s not coming back or should I just cut my losses?

    1. I didn’t watch “Clarice,” so I’m going to defer to our readers who did, and to the critics who gave it a big, “eh.” ( I did see that the final couple of episodes might have been an improvement on the earlier ones, but I’m not sure it’s worth the investment of 10 episodes to get there.
      Anyone else out there watch “Clarice?” Thoughts?

  2. I watched it regularly and enjoyed it. Some of the episode plots were a bit contrived and she always kept getting into dangerous situations, but Rebecca Breeds did great justice to the character. And Michael Cudlitz was very good. (Though I did miss the red hair.)
