Your Afternoon Man: Samuel L. Jackson

This is a sight to behold.

Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. is a force of nature. Nothing scares him. Not snakes on a plane, not Sith Lords, not John Travolta’s various hair configurations, and not mixing patterns.

Samuel L. Jackson

He’s like, “Yes? And what of it?” This is, after all, a man who once reportedly said, “I heard that you can do whatever you want in International Waters. That’s why I filled my jacuzzi with International Water.”

Even better, the Olympics are nigh, and NOBODY tweets the Olympics like Samuel L. Jackson. In 2012, he went full nutballs over everything from badminton to handball to synchro diving to gymnastics (“Massive German Facial on high bar! OUCH like a MUPFUGGUH!!”). He may well be the biggest potential treasure of Rio 2016. Decline to follow at your own risk.


Fugllions: Malin Akerman

I certainly appreciate the inherent sassiness in this.

But she looks like a pirate who just really, really does not understand what belts do.

Fugtrospective: Taylor Swift’s Met Gala Gowns

T.Swizz here is the co-chair of Monday’s Met Gala, the theme of which this year is — ahem — “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, highlighting the intersection of fashion and tech in today’s world.” (So get ready for a lot of LED dresses, basically.) Just for fun, as we prepare for whatever Taylor has in store — for some reason I’m predicting a Tron vibe from her — let’s take a look back at all of her Met Gala ensembles. Pick your fave.

Fug or Fab: Greta Gerwig

As ever, I think her head looks great here, but I’m not sure what to make of the rest of it:

Maggie's Plan Special Presentation in Los Angeles

I honestly don’t even know if this is separates or a dress — if it’s the former, I admit that I think the top would be super cute with jeans. If it’s the latter, I am still not mad at it. Just perhaps mildly unsure about my feelings, like when you can’t decide if you’re getting a cold or it’s just allergies. I might like it? I might find the black overlay on the pleats of the skirt too closely related to Glamour Don’t Bars? I might LIKE THAT about it? HOW DO I EVEN FEEL?


Well Played, Hamilton Cast: The Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS performance

In which our intrepid Pulitzer winner and his cast reimagine the opening number of Hamilton to be about Sweeney Todd, Fleet Street’s worst hairdresser.

It almost — almost – makes me wish everyone would use the Tonys to reinterpret each other’s musicals. Nobody does a loving ribbing of its own quite like Broadway. That’s why, for my money, the Tonys are the best award show of the bunch. The Globes are drunk and weird and trying to be everything to everyone. The Grammys are bloated. The Oscars are tortured, do nothing to celebrate the medium in a true way, and only seem to care about setting ratings records. No other show celebrates its medium as respectfully, yet with such a mischievous sense of humor, as the Tonys. And nominations come out next week, I believe…


Fug or Fab the Trailer: The Ab Fab Movie

Featuring Jon Hamm, Kate Moss, and a peek at the most likely future for me and Jessica — including Stella McCartney throwing a brick through the window.


Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else at the Time 100 Gala

I’m pleased to note how many women wore color to this event. Pleased, I tell you.
