This Open Thread biodegrades if properly composted. So hurry up and read!
All this stuff: Horrible Bosses opens this weekend; legendary UK tabloid News of the World is folding after a hacking scandal; Warner Music Group was acquired by a Russian media mogul; and we got our first glimpse of Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher.
Comment of the Week goes to Brian on Commander Shepard and the Effective Agenda:
Yo I like yall comments and Imma let yall finish debate’n imperialist morality, but “Thon” is the best gender neutral pronoun of all time… of all time.
It works because of its relevance, but because of how much of a reach it is (how long ago was that Kanye debacle? A year and a half?)
Honorable mention goes to Lars Brown, for his detailed look into the life of a projectionist in an American theater. It is, in fact, not as serious a craft as Michael Bay would have us believe.
Lots going on in Europe this week, I suppose. Anything of note happening in the States? Or Australia or Asia? If so, sound off in the comments, for this is your … Open Thread.
