    Excited about this casting. Was hoping he would be in Black Panther, but this is good.

    And Obama, always the coolest when taking down the bigoted morons.

    • TG says:

      OT but thanks for the lawyerly comments on that one subject (cough). I know I’m not a regular or anything, but I appreciate your consistently level headed insight. :)

      • Brittney B. says:

        … yeah, thanks for clearing up legal specifics that relate to that case. It’s good to know the law.

        I haven’t been able to stop thinking about my email since your comments yesterday; this awful case has triggered so many awful and helpless feelings, and now all I can think is that I made things worse for her and wasted precious time, and what an idiot I am for trying to help a famous stranger at all, and that others wasted time on something unhelpful. My empathy can be crippling at times and I wish I could undo it.

        You mentioned others needed the same advice, but I never saw anything about contacting lawyers with tips, and I’ve been following these stories closely. Not sure how I missed your previous comments, but I’ll try to pay more attention from now on.

    He has beautiful skin.. and I like his chest hair. I don’t know who he is.. but that’s my contribution.

      @Lisa2, who wrote: “He has beautiful skin.. and I like his chest hair. I don’t know who he is.. but that’s my contribution.”

      Donald Glover played Rich Purnell, an astrodynamics (physics of motion) physicist, in “The Martian” who calculated the ‘sling shot’ maneuver that allowed the five astronauts on their way back to Earth in the spaceship Hermes to go directly back to Mars to rescue Mark Watney. The Hermes crew let NASA know that they were going rogue (in defying NASA’s orders ‘not’ to go back to get Watney) and planned to use the ‘Rich Purnell maneuver’ with this typed message: “Rich Purnell is a steely-eyed missile man.” :)

    ALRIGHT Childish Gambino Cook, King COOK! * Waving Panties like a flag* ( I actually Love his music, He Covered Tamia and it was theeeee most excellent use of his voice and his vulnerability

    I swear, the only good thing about Trump’s rise this year is all the things people have come up with to describe him. “Half-fermented bezoar” had me giggling for five minutes straight.

  5. Tiffany says:

    ‘Zero f*cks to give’ POTUS really is the best POTUS.

    • Kitten says:

      Barry’s going out full metal jacket style and I am LOVING every second of it.

      It was all I could do to not squeal while reading that Jez link.
      POTUS is just…rad. That is all.

      • Tiffany says:

        I know that he has plans to take time off come January, but that just cannot happen. Secretary of State Obama? Huh…..

        I have to include FLOTUS. I can see a political career for her as well.

      • Jwoolman says:

        I just want him to relax and periodically do what he just did…. I foresee another ex-President who will actually be useful out of the White House.

        And yes, I think his wife might be doing likewise in her own way. She’s quite competent on her own, just took a hiatus for family duties so people tend to forget she’s also a lawyer. But their little birdies are flying the nest soon.

  6. Zuzus Girl says:

    I’m sorry but nothing will make another Spiderman movie better. Come up with some damned original ideas!

  7. Kri says:

    I’m on it since day1.

  8. Maggie says:

    Donald glover is disgusting. He’s misogynistic, defends rape jokes, and is very anti-Asian. Screw him

  9. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    So wanted him to play Spiderman, le sigh. I guess this will do.

    And homecoming is the title of the new movie?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Yes. Homecoming. And they’re going with an actual teenager to play teenaged SpiderMan, so Glover would be too old.

  10. Mira says:

    Pass. Rape jokes aren’t cool.

  11. kadyo says:

    Just read that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are expecting!

  12. OriginallyBlue says:

    I’m going to need Idris to stop doing voice work for kids movies. Making me feel all type of ways.

  13. Vaya says:

    Jude Law as the Pope? I’ve got to see this. Will he work from the Borgia’s play book?

  14. TyrantDestroyed says:

    I would only watch Spiderman if Danny was Peter Parker, that would make the reboot interesting and worthy

    • Calico Cat says:

      I dunno, the kid playing Spidey in Civil War was one of the two best things in the movie, Panther being the other!

  15. Bobafelty says:

    I think he’s a mediocre actor. Plus I find his jokes misogynistic and just not that funny. I know a lot of people like him.

    Love the guy who wound up playing black panther, so glad glover didn’t get the role.

  16. Lennox says:

    LOL Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are actually happening!

  17. Bex says:

    It’s been a while since I’ve been properly surprised by a piece of celeb gossip, but Tom and Taylor appear to be an actual thing haha!

  18. lindy79 says:

    Oooooh here go hell come. There are pictures

    Ultra stages ones but still…..

    • Tiffany says:

      I know. Hypocrisy is gonna hit her like a ton of bricks. Ha….ha….ha.

      Remember Tom, Jake’s career never quite recovered from from him dating her.

    • Mrs.No says:

      staged-vibes are there all right. but there is also something else – UGH factor – like seeing your parents kiss or something.

  19. M.A.F. says:

    Well, my summer just got better. I need to stock up on the popcorn for all of the Taylor and Tom threads.

  20. Adzuki says:

    He was likeable but somewhat unbelievable as that genius astrophysicist or whatever in The Martian.

  21. Red32 says:

    Well then “the Internet” obviously didn’t see Captain America 3, because Tom Holland was the perfect Spider-Man.

  22. Jwoolman says:

    I’m a little out of touch. I looked at the picture of Donald Glover and thought: “How does he look so young? He looks younger than when he really was young. Isn’t he older than me? What happened to his face? That’s not his face. Oh, DONALD Glover, not DANNY Glover. Never mind.”
