I don’t understand these hot dog eating competitions – not because of the volume of food consumed but because I’m a slow eater, I like to savour my food, especially a hot dog. When you take all that care to apply your condiments (the mustard just right, the ketchup just right, the relish nestled along the seam of the bun for maximum saturation, mayo too) you can’t rush the eating process! Anyway, this dude is a legend in the speed hot dog eating world. Did you know there’s a Show Your Work for his “skill” too? (Dlisted) 

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy Independence Day, the movie. I’ll watch it at any time of year. Did you know Independence Day has its own Hollywood Sliding Doors alternate history? It wasn’t always going to be Will Smith. It was supposed to be Ethan Hawke. So Troy Dyer would have been the one lighting the cigar? (Pajiba) 

Loooooove this tie dye bikini top on Teyana Taylor. Some people might complain about the tan lines. Tan lines never bother me. I don’t understand why it’s considered a bad look. (TMZ) 
Galante did not get much media attention during Paris Fashion Week but I love every piece in this collection. (Go Fug Yourself) 
More Hollywood Sliding Doors – Russell Crowe could have been Johnny Cash in Walk the Line instead of Joaquin Phoenix. Pretty sure no one is wistful about this besides Russell. Joaquin Phoenix did a great job in that film. I was in love with him for a year after that film. Also the chemistry between him and Reese Witherspoon made the film. Would it have been the same between Reese and Russell? I can’t even imagine it. I don’t want to imagine it. (Cele|bitchy) 

I’m writing this at 1:45pm ET. Right now, the world is still waiting on Kawhi Leonard. The way Kawhi is going about this, though, is not unlike how he went about deciding on college. So this isn’t exactly a surprise. That’s why there have been no reliable leaks. My favourite line here: “He has a really good personality. He’s just not going to volunteer it.” (LA Times)
