The Best of the web this week!
I save things in my pocket all week long and look forward to sharing highlights with all of you! It’s been a while so grab the nearest bucket of popcorn, kids.
Pocket enables users to save something they find online for later. I find it especially handy as a Google Chrome extension — I only have to click a button to immediately save something to my pocket. Once something is saved, the content is visible on any device — phone, tablet, computer, and even offline.
- Rose McGowan, a new hero. A riveting article by Kate Arthur.
- I have a page on Variety.com. That’s pretty ridiculous.
- Buzzfeed’s “listicle” about the struggles of having thick hair is painfully accurate.
- This is old news by now but I love it so much and I don’t care. 1000 people sync up on the Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly.”
- This is also a ton of fun — Luke Bryan duets with Jason Derulo on his hit “Want to Want me.” I love it so much — I’ve probably watched it every day this week. (It was created to advertise a new social karaoke app and it worked — I totally downloaded it.)
- Apparently this has been going on for a while — this duet with Jessie J and a random user named Coral Leigh is rather beautiful.
- Who runs the world? These dancers, ages 11 and 14, do.
- What TV is everyone watching this Summer? There’s a total lack of good stuff out there and I usually find a couple new shows to get hooked on in the Summer season. I guess it doesn’t help that this year’s Big Brother cast is completely inept and unlikable and the new format for So You Think You Can Dance is stupid. But they did reunite “Twilex” so not a total loss.
- You guys, Columbia House is going out of business. So you can’t get 12 CDs for a penny anymore. (Yes, apparently they were still in business. I was as surprised as you.)
- Inside Out is getting a sequel. Sort of. But I’m really excited!!!
EARLIER THIS WEEK….
- I ripped apart a pitch that ticked me off.
- I enjoyed the Del Mar race track. And wearing my red fedora.
- The GOP debates were a joke. So I treated them as such.
