– You need to see Chris Hemsworth carrying around his tiny little baby. (Lainey Gossip)

– I’ve posted about Albrecht Muth and Viola Drath before, but the New York Times does their story justice. It’s got everything: murder, marriage, and madness. (NYT)

– The Awl asks the question of our generation: Angela Lansbury, or Betty White? (The Awl)

– ALLEGEDLY, Solange doesn’t think Kim Kardashian is good enough for Beyonce. I take tabloid reports with a grain of salt, but I totally decided to believe this. (Celebitchy)

– This is a really great piece about Olympic moments — Mary Lou Retton (my girlhood idol) in particular. Read it. (The Hairpin)

– Speaking of, I have my doubts about the US Olympic team’s uniforms on many levels. The berets feel a little…off-message. (Time)
