Sean Penn is promoting his book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. It’s a stupid-ass title. I can’t tell you if it’s a stupid-ass book but I don’t think it’s winning any awards and it’s because Sean Penn is a dick…but not, necessarily, in the way that you think, although his general dickishness is certainly part of it. Full Story

My questions about Riverdale and its nosedive of a second season are directed mostly at the writers and showrunner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, not the cast. I’m less annoyed with the cast.

In preparation for this piece, I watched a full episode of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and oh my god, it was EVERYTHING. I remember it so well. I wanted to be a gumshoe so badly. I’m still just as bad at geography now as I was then so I got an embarrassing amount of questions wrong while playing along. Full Story

I can’t imagine that there’s anyone reading this who has no idea about the origin story but, if you don’t, Tiffany Haddish has been dropping breadcrumbs about it for months now. It started in February Full Story

Christina Aguilera, back to basics

In 2006, Christina Aguilera released her fifth studio album Back to Basics. Remember, it was the album where she dressed like an Old Hollywood starlet she dubbed “Baby Jane” and sang throwback-style R&B jams. Back to Basics was the second reinvention of Xtina’s career, right after the Stripped/ Dirrty era. Full Story

Lena Dunham has a new boyfriend. He kinda looks like a cross between Orlando Bloom and Tom Holland. For that reason, since he’s a “mystery man”, I’m going to assume that he’s British and that his name is Simon. Full Story
