Man, it’s been a weird summer so far. Today marked the sixth, and final week of the summer class that I teach for incoming freshmen students. There’s just been something off since the get-go, and as its conclusion nears, a sense of confusion that it’s really ending, and a sense of relief that it’s really ending are both making themselves known. But it’s the end, the conclusion, the finale this week.
And for all my whimpering, simpering, and bitching, I only have to wear dress pants three more times until September.
And for all my whimpering, simpering, and bitching, I only have to work four days a week until September.
So here we are. Frazzled, and fried, but fairly grateful, all things considered.
This is Monday Morning Commute. The wank-off section, where we wank, and oh do we stroke, and rub, and perhaps even lick ourselves to the arts&farts we’re looking forward to on a given week. I’ll go first.
Then you go. Get excited. Don’t worry. Wet naps and warm towels will be dispensed per your request.
The Russo Brothers and Noah Hawley working on anything, alone, is enough to get me excited. Them working together on a new TV series? I’m fucking pumped. Jacked, even.
Julia Roberts starring in Amazon series from ‘Mr. Robot’ creator based on a fictional podcast wtf is going on
Lotta, lotta fucking information to drink in, in that nightmare headline above. First: Julia Roberts is going to be starring in an Amazon series. Second: it’s being helmed by Sam Esmail, creator of Mr. Robot. Third: the show will be based off of Homecoming, a fictional podcast.
What’s worse, folks. The marketing behind Strangers Things‘ second season releasing insanely vaguely, empty teasers leaving us wanting more? Or — or how about fucking this — them only releasing them on Twitter.
Holy shit. One of my favorite minds is bringing to life one of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors. What a deliciously unexpected, mildly arousing, certainly promising development.
Good for Walton Goggins, yo. I never predicted he’d have such a career after his excellent role on The Shield, but I’m gladdened to be so fucking wrong.
Former Mass Effect lead Casey Hudson is returning to BioWare to serve as the company’s general manager. Hudson. Please. I beg you. Unfuck Mass Effect.
Want to check out NGC 2500? I fuckin’ get it, I do. Just set your course to its location. You know, 30 million light-years away. I’m right behind you! Seriously.
Netflix just feels like an institution at this point, right? It’s easy to forget it’s actually a company, and not woven into the DNA of our pop culture (or maybe its both?). But yes, it’s a business, and it’s doing quite fucking well.
New Blade Runner 2049 trailer! I’m not going to watch it, instead I’m opting to go in with as little knowledge of the movie as possible. Keep it fresh, if you will.
