Saw this nice little Carrera S today. But take a closer look at the vanity plate. Lol.

The Shape of Water is shaping up (sorry, not sorry) to be one of the best movies of 2017 , and that’s partly thanks to the mysterious allure of Doug Jones’ fishman creature, who’s captured the hearts and minds of the internet. A new book is diving into the process of making the movie, and io9 has an exclusive look inside.

I’m still trying to understand it.
“For anyone who doesn’t know: This might look like some random blog, but the woman who runs it, Marcy Wheeler, is a legit journalist.”—CJ Kloote
I *think* the skinny is: “Marcy has evidence that Flynn worked with Russians on a Syria agreement before the election. ...View more »
Dyson vacuums dominated the nominations in our Kinja Co-Op for best vacuum, but they can be prohibitively expensive. Today though, refurbs of the popular Dyson Ball Animal 2 are down to $275 on Amazon , or nearly $100 less than usual.
On Monday we...View more »
As someone who writes for a living, please believe me when I say that there are no words to accurately describe the subterranean depths of stupidity plumbed by conservative conspiracy crackpot Jack Burkman and mulch-brained “wunderkind” Jacob Wohl during their circus of a press conference on Thursday afternoon, where they promised a bombshell report claiming Special Counsel Robert Mueller had...View more »
Drove in today next to a pristine 2 door Tahoe. I forgot how awesome they are. I immediately started looking at gmt400 4.8 or 5.3 swaps. I would kill for a 2 door, but 10mpg is just too little.Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIFYour browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF
Australian director Richard Lowenstein cut his teeth making music videos for INXS, the pop-rock outfit made famous by singer Michael Hutchence, a smoldering, charismatic frontman if there ever was one. Now, Lowenstein is back with Mystify: Michael Hutchence, an intimate exploration that many have lauded as the definitive chronicle of the singer’s life, which ended tragically in 1997....View more »
When former president George Herbert Walker Bush died on Friday at the age of 94, he left behind a legacy of playing an instrumental role in many of the worst, most racist, most oppressive policies in modern American history, to say nothing for his alleged penchant for sexual harassment and assault.
Lost in all the masturbatory hagiography that’s followed Bush Sr.’s death, however, is what I...View more »
I’m a huge fan of night or dark mode and have written a ton about different apps and extensions you can use to darken up your screen. Any dark mode enthusiast will tell you about how using your device with a dark background rather than a white one will save your eyes as well as your device’s battery power. This week Google took things a step further and talked about how much battery power...View more »
I have a friend named Eddie. He decided that he wanted to do a little comedy thing for GoFundMe and what he wanted to do was just get a McChicken. He got the goal pretty quickly and decided to change it to McChickens for the Homeless. He now wants to get $64 in order to be able to give out 50 McChickens to homeless people around Portland Oregon.
If you feel inspired to give some McChickens to...View more »
Fun fact, all the photos I’ve used for the countdown posts were taken while I was out scouting for the rally. In other news, we’re just one entry away from a whopping 25 teams! Who’s going to push us over that edge?

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz—a racist, conspiracy theory spreading, maniac—spent the bulk of his Wednesday morning ranting and raving during a House Judiciary hearing on whether or not to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. But at the same time that Gaetz was gnashing his teeth in defense of the White House, his home state’s bar association was busy announcing a...View more »
Slow day at work, so let’s talk about the 1986 Civic Wagon! I’ve been driving and errand running in the Wagovan* today, putting the most dynamic** number of miles on it since I bought it, and I am prepared to offer some observations.
*Yes, I know it isn’t technically a Wagovan, but you knew what I meant.
**By dynamic I mean mix of highway, city, parking, and eating plus a couple of hot starts....View more »
When the other middle school kids go low, you want your kid to go high. You want your kid to be the one to stand up to the bully or to say, “No thanks, that (insert risky behavior here) is dumb.”
But middle school is the time when peer pressure hits an all-time high, intersecting with a child’s deep need to belong. For writer Jennifer Underwood’s daughter, that led to a petty theft from the...View more »
