Greetings, one and all. Quick roundup of news stories this Friday, though I invite you all (as usual) to share anything interesting that has crossed your path.
We’ve got a bit more news than usual this week since Sara’s on vacation, plus lots of other interesting things to read and watch.
News Bites are back after a holiday hiatus, and in our time away, it seems so many people have died. Still, we have a few good things happening too. Let’s get started:
Ah, it’s a short week because of Thanksgiving, so there can’t be that much to talk about, right? Well… The relatively low amount of shit to report on was balanced out by how truly terrible a lot of it was. Sorry! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Butts, y’all. And also some real news. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Okay, even though the U.S. midterm elections gave the Republicans a congressional majority again, let us console ourselves with how this will make it easier for the Democrats to come back in 2016. We hope, anyway. Let’s get to this and more in this week’s newsy updates.
Y’all. It’s been a hell of a week. Of course we’re still dealing with GamerGate, plus the backlash to the street harassment video that everyone loved just a few days ago. And don’t forget the fucked up Halloween costumes that are already out there! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Happy Friday! We have some more marriage equality updates, a timeline for future comic book movies, and the untimely passing of some notable people. Also, there’s a rather weird music/intelligence “study” with which I have some problems. Let’s get started:
Oh, friends, my heart is heavy with everything happening this week. I cannot cover it all, but I can at least give you a few interesting stories, and we’ll end on an up-note, I promise.
This week has been pretty much the worst. The SCOTUS decision in the Hobby Lobby case obviously captivated most of our attention, but the rest of the world didn’t stop being awful either. Fucking hell. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) *Programming note: We’re taking tomorrow off to eat delicious cook-out food […]
Happy Friday, friends. We have a grab-bag of politicians making some … questionable decisions, LEGO being awesome, and the Amazon Overlords being rather Overlord-y. Let’s get started.
In a stunning turn of events, I have mostly good news to share this week because I feel like we all need it. First though, let’s get the unpleasant and ridiculous out of the way.
I wish I had more of an upbeat collection of news stories for you all this week, but we’ve got some upsetting items to sift through first. Including my regret over “2 a.m. and I’m hungry” late-night food purchases…
Make yourself a mug of hot cocoa, or maybe a hot toddy, and let’s jump right into some of this week’s news stories.
Oh dear. There is just so much wrong with the world this week. A little bit of good news, but a lot more that’s positively rage-inducing. At least there’s an awesome Stephen Colbert smackdown! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
