Hello and happy midweek to you, my friends! I’ve just been out at the little frame shop near my house getting my new cat peet arts matted and framed! What if I convince my wife that we should only have art in our house painted by animals? Am I a secret interior design genius?? Probably. What I definitely am is your humble servant and this is your Wednesday Pop Culture Fix!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics have recently embraced the “Slayerverse,” Buffy’s answer to the multiverse, and the concept has unlocked bold new iterations of the classic characters. The newest version of Xander is very different to the classic one, with his most problematic elements removed for a simple reason; he’s interested in guys instead.
+ Harry Styles and Lizzo dueted on “I Will Survive” at Coachella, in case you missed it. I promised my bisexual sister I would make sure you knew this.
+ An energetic Hacks season two trailer for you!
+ Does Taika Waititi’s involvement in the explicitly queer Our Flag Means Death spell a bright, rainbow-colored future for Thor: Love and Thunder? (I personally doubt it, not because of Taika Waititi but because of Disney.)
+ I sincerely cannot believe this movie exists.
