Well, well, well. And what do we have here? Just a clickbait article from my (usually lovely) Slate called “Against YA.” And the subhed is fun: “Read whatever you want. But you should feel embarrassed when what you’re reading was written for children.”

Real music fans know that not just any song can be crowned Song of the Summer. A Song of the Summer will make you want to day drink. It will get you dancing even when played over the crappy sound system at a street fair. It thinks that crop top was a great idea.

Louis C.K. did terrible grabbing, pushing, forced kissing and more to a lady on his teevee program “Louie” and everyone was freaked out. He tried to drag her into a bedroom and it was disturbing and I can’t watch the whole clip all at once because it makes me feel weird inside in an uncomfortable fashion, and not just because fanfuckingtastic Pamela Adlon was the voice of my beloved Bobby on “King of the Hill.” Jezebel has a good thing about it that you can read and ponder.

Thor, a Great Dane puppy, is supposed to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to work with his human. He sounds just like we did, oh, every single morning of high school.
