I’ll be honest, Overthinkers, it feels like a slow week for pop. Last night saw the So You Think You Can Dance season finale, with some lady named “Melanie” being voted America’s favorite. George Lopez’s talk show was canceled. Justin Lin, director of Fast Five, confirmed there will be a Fast Six. There are some movies coming out this weekend, but aside from Glee 3D, are we expecting anything noteworthy?
“You’re killing me, Perich,” you’re saying right now. “Any good news?” As a matter of fact, NO. So we made some news ourselves!
We’re hosting our first OTI meetup! New York Area Overthinkers: Save the date of Wednesday, August 24 to meet OTI writers Wrather, Lee, Belinkie, Stokes, and others at Tribeca Tavern & Cafe. We’ll roll up by 9pm. RSVP on the Facebook Event if you want to come.
Comment of the Week: there was some HEAVY competition in Wrather’s return to posting with “Thursday Grammar: Impostrophe,” but the winner by a nose is STH with a piercing Well, Actually:
Well actually … this is a post about orthography, not grammar. But it’s still appreciated.
And we appreciate you, STH. Don’t ever leave us.
(On a brief and serious note: our thoughts are with any of our London fans who are affected by the unrest in the streets. Stay safe, Overthinkers.)
If I broke off from this Open Thread to address our NYC meetup, praising its geographic location and democratic accessibility, would you understand what rhetorical device I was talking about? Or is there something we missed? Sound off in the comments, for this is your … Open Thread.
