Is Mike Pence Quietly Preparing for His Own Political Campaign? Is Mike Pence Quietly Preparing for His Own Political Campaign?

Vice President Mike Pence may be a wooden spoon with neurotically-combed hair, but he’s not without ambition.

It’s by no means an unprecedented move—but it does suggest that Pence is…

Actually, Daniel Craig Will Probably Sign Onto a Fifth James Bond Film Actually, Daniel Craig Will Probably Sign Onto a Fifth James Bond Film

In October 2015, English actor Daniel Craig declared that he would “rather slash my wrists” than perform the role of 007 a fifth time. That feels a touch hyperbolic, but point taken. And yet, it sounds as if Craig has changed his tune.

Do We Need a Pitch Perfect 3? No, But I Will Sure As Hell See It Anyway

I will go to the mat for the first Pitch Perfect. Anna Kendrick is fetching and quirky; “Cups” is ideal for shower singing; and I’m pretty undiscerning in my fondness for a cappella covers. The sequel is enjoyable not so much because it is especially good, but because I am a sucker for fan service. And that is why I…

After much controversy, Megyn Kelly’s interview with InfoWars host and sweaty conspiratorial loon Alex Jones aired on Sunday evening. It has been zealously truncated to emphasize moments when Kelly puts pressure on Jones, but the end result is largely ho-hum uneventful journalism.

To Be Clear, Barb From Stranger Things Is Really, Honest-to-Goodness Dead To Be Clear, Barb From Stranger Things Is Really, Honest-to-Goodness Dead

Barb’s mucky demise on the first season of Stranger Things was, to say the least, a real bummer. In fact, some viewers were so distressed that they hoped—and in some cases convinced themselves—that she wasn’t really dead. Death, while seemingly pretty permanent ~IRL~, can sometimes be cheated in the sci-fi and fantasy…

Yes America, There Is a 'Covfefe' Bill in the Works Yes America, There Is a 'Covfefe' Bill in the Works

Because we now live in a dimension that is two parts Hieronymus Bosch’s The Last Judgment and one part Alice Through the Looking Glass, absurdity now rules the day. And so, it falls to me to report that a bill inspired by Trump’s “covfefe” tweet is making its way through Congress.
