I have decided to make the annual switch from iced coffee to hot coffee, even though it’s less gay, because I’m trying to coax fall into really getting here. In the meantime, I made you a Pop Culture Fix while wearing a hoodie and sitting directly in front of the air conditioner.
+ Danielle Radcliffe’s Weird Al biopic apparently received nonstop cheers and laughter at the Toronto International Film festival, which is of interest to this Pop Culture Fix because Evan Rachel Wood plays Madonna “on a lot of cocaine” in it. Wood told reporters at TIFF: “She’s very conniving and completely just using Weird Al, and everything she does is a pathological lie to get ahead in her career. So it was basically taking the genius that is Madonna and turning her into a sociopath that ends up running a drug cartel.” Okay then! The reviews have actually been pretty great for this thing, with IndieWire calling Wood’s performance “a fun gum-snapping vixen role” and Radcliffe saying she gave “a thousand percent” and was “fucking game” for anything. Am I going to have to watch it now?

How have they cancelled Paper Girls? It only just arrived!
Upset about the Paper Girls cancelation. It was such a nice show and all 4 main protagonists were wonderful on their own and especially with each other.
Plus, it had a cliffhanger. I wanted to see more of that world.
I am so bummed about Paper Girls being cancelled! It is such a cute, fun show. I just told my wife and she said “Of course they’d cancel a show about girls.” Gawd, if there wasn’t more of a reason to hate Amazon.
Ginger Gonzaga came out as bisexual herself. She said her character Nikki is queer ( everything she said about Nikki made me think that Nikki is pan)
‘Big Shot’ is way too heterosexual for a show about women’s basketball.
Horribly disappointed to see that ‘Paper Girls’ was cancelled, I was so looking forward to watching KJ and Mac’s relationship develop further. The studio behind the show is apparently shopping it but I’m not optimistic.
