+ This week has lasted about ten thousand years, fires on top of garbage on top of other fires on top of other garbage, but you have to trust me that you will stop thinking about that for at least the three minutes it takes you to watch this trailer for Mean Girls reimagined as a lesbian rom com. (I had to pause it to roll around on the floor when it said “Before Carol…”) (Also this is the one and only good thing I’ve seen so far re: the internet’s latest obsession with “pivoting to video.”)
+ Samira Wiley joined John Oliver on Last Week Tonight for a CSI spoof called Crime Scene Idiot. (She arrives around the 15-minute mark.)
+ A headline from UK GQ: Cara Delevingne on why men and women should speak more openly about vaginas. The URL is great too “lady-garden-campaign.”
+ Aleksandar Hemon in The New Yorker about the transformative experience about writing for Sense8.
+ Heeeey a new technicolor St. Vincent music video. It’s for her song “Los Angeles” and it is about facelifts.
+ Mary Lambert is everywhere all over again, just as it should be. At Junkee:
I always think that it’s very interesting: laughing so hard you’re going to cry and crying so hard you’re going to laugh. I don’t think that that’s a coincidence that they’re related, I think that they access a similar part in the human brain and I think that that’s a place where I live. So my performances are a lot like that.
+ Fox is making Lawrence Otis Graham’s Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class into a TV series.
+ Rachel Maddow wrote about Nicole Wallace in Variety for that 50 Powerful New Yorkers thing they’re doing. If you don’t watch MSNBC you know Nicole Wallace as Sarah Paulson’s character in HBO’s Game Change.
+ Atlanta‘s Stefani Robinson signed an overall deal with FX! Did you know she’s writing the film adaptation of Princeless? I can’t wait.
+ Here are some details about that new Riverdale spinoff of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. They do not sound like good details to me. They are way too boyfriend heavy.
+ Viola Davis and Larry Wilmore are tag-teaming for a show called Black Don’t Crack.
+ Take a peek at the first stills from Marvel’s The Runaways, which is coming to Hulu in late November.
+ Alaiana mentioned this in the Sunday Funday but I just wanted to reiterate that Kristen Stewart is in talks to star in a Charlie’s Angels reboot alongside Lupita Nyong’o.
