Hey, buddies! We had a publishing error final evening, so here’s yesterday’s edition of Items We Saw Nowadays!
Mylo the Cat, who previously went viral with a couple of other previous hip-hop/Sesame Street mashups, has accomplished it once more. This time, they combined the children’s show with Beastie Boys’ delightfully campy and really classic music video, “Sabotage.” I do not assume I’ve ever noticed Muppets go this challenging on something. (through Stereogum)
- Just after getting dumped by her boyfriend, a single higher schooler photoshopped Ryan Reynolds into her prom images. Reynolds responded, of course, by saying that she should really ‘shop him more than her ex’s head in her yearbook, as well. Good. (through The Daily Dot)
- Gavin Russom, of the legendary music group LCD Soundsystem, just came out as a transgender lady. In an interview with Pitchfork, she spoke about what it is been like coming out and stated, “Over the final year and a half, I went from my trans identity getting some thing I was in touch with and worked by way of in a single way or an additional, to all of a sudden this shift exactly where it is on the front burner. Now it is time to turn into a entire individual.” Cheers, Russom! And congrats.
Overwatch continues its outstanding streak of introducing great characters. They’ve just added Doomfist, the leader of the villainous group Talon, and arch enemy to just about every person on the Overwatch crew. The anime introduction video above is fantastic, even although I’m nonetheless truly messed up more than how he completely wrecks Tracer when he rips off her time backpack and extremely tragic factors ensue. (But it is okay, since it is set in the previous … I assume. I hope.)
- Get a major ol’ grain of salt prepared for this a single, loves: the shortlist for who may play Batgirl in the upcoming DC film has allegedly been leaked. It comes by way of Reddit (major red flag there), and names Elle Fanning, Olivia Cooke, Bella Thorne, Katherine Langford, Margaret Qualley, Jane Levy, Emma Roberts, Haley Lu Richardson, and Naomi Scott. Note that only two of these actresses are ladies of colour. Sigh. (through Elle)
- The organizers behind the Women’s March are now preparing an additional significant action: they’re placing with each other a march against the NRA, who, if you will don’t forget, released an extremely chilling video not as well extended ago. (through The Slot)
