Pop Culture Fix: Charlize Theron Was Serious About That Lesbian “Die Hard” Remake, Y’all

You know what I was wishing for today? One of those little spray guns they have (had?) at bars that they spritz seltzer out of right into your glass? Wouldn’t that be cool, and then instead of the other buttons being soda, it could be flavors for your seltzer! Maybe I should just crack and get a SodaStream.

  1. Wynonna Earp in March, Legends in May … little by little, light returns to the world, and bourbon leaves it.

    Speaking of that which was formerly known as the Arrowverse, if anyone was curious about the new “Superman and Lois” series – there are no confirmed queer characters yet, the youth use dark green solo cups at their parties these days, and it remains to be seen if they ever ask Aunt Kara to babysit the twins.

  2. I’m a little disappointed that the showtime series isn’t just about Eleanor Roosevelt. It’ll be cool to see other First Ladies, but more main characters means less chance of Pauli Murray popping up. But they should still have plenty of time for all Eleanor’s gayness.

    Love the Tracie Thoms tweet ❤️
