I hope you’re resting up, because Monday is the Met Ball, which always brings SHENANIGANS and INSANITY, just the way we like it. We will be covering the arrivals livestream (on Vogue.com) for The Cut starting at 7pm Eastern time. (I’ll throw a link up on Monday as well.) Cross your fingers that someone reads that the theme is PUNK (which it is) and decides to really GO FOR IT. Until then:
– I don’t think I need to say any more than the title of this article: Terrifying Vintage Workplace Safety Posters From the Netherlands. (Flavorwire)
– You really want to see this piece in the Telegraph. I almost don’t want to spoil it, except say that it’s awesome and paintings and historical figures are involved. (Telegraph)
– Vulture takes on the important stuff: Whose Butts Have We Seen on Game of Thrones?
– Pajiba lists the 12 Most Anticipated Anti-Blockbuster Movies of the Summer Blockbuster Season.
– I love Mariah Carey for remarrying Nick Cannon every year AND PUTTING IT ON VINE. She is a fluffy treasure. (Those kids are adorable.) (Lainey)
– You probably want to read about the (fictional…FOR NOW) League of Their Own musical. (Vulture)
– Goodreads is hosting a game of Exquisite Corpse and we contributed to it — along with a bunch of seriously awesome authors like Sarah Dessen and Jennifer Egan. (Goodreads)
– If you haven’t seen the Reese Witherspoon arrest footage, you probably should watch it. She is going full Tracy Flick, and makes for one sassy drunk lady. (Although, seriously, don’t drink and drive, y’all. Also, it’s generally not advisable to sass a cop.) (Celebitchy)
– New Zealand updated their list of Banned Baby Names, including such delights as “Lucifer,” “Christ,” “89,” and “*.” (Time)
– There was some escandalo at the contest determining who does the World’s Fastest Set of Acrylic Sculptured Nails in Pasadena recently. One could even say…THE CLAWS WERE OUT. (LA Weekly)
