Every single Stephen King novella, ranked


There aren’t many best-selling authors out there who still write novellas.

In publishing terms, the form is a tricky one: often too short to stand alone but too long to include in a short story collection, books in the 20,000-40,000 word range can sometimes hang in a kind of literary no man’s land. It’s tricky to make them work.

Really, what more can you ask for from a single GIF?

So much going on here. First, he somehow manages to catch the ball without sustaining damage to the baby (??). Second, WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOOL? THAT IS A HUMAN LIFE!!

Why Sean Spicer is actually a genius


When it comes to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, most people would not immediately label him as a “smart guy.” He has drawn criticism for making false and often controversial statements, and his general combativeness with the press. But he is human, is he not? Are you perfect? He deserves a champion. And that champion is me. 

I’m going to outline exactly how Sean Spicer is actually a genius, and how everything he’s doing is actually going really well.

1. He handles the questions like a boss.

LaVar Ball is already making NBA life hard for Lonzo Ball


Former UCLA star Lonzo Ball was selected by his hometown Los Angeles Lakers with the second overall pick of Thursday’s NBA Draft. Lonzo’s father, LaVar Ball, has been a media figure of Trumpian omnipresence since he started making bombastic comments right around March Madness. 

LaVar is ostensibly being such a blowhard to promote his family’s Big Baller Brand, hoping to facilitate sales of sneakers and apparel. But LaVar’s constant thirst for attention has made some wonder if it will make NBA life harder for Lonzo as he enters the world’s top basketball league. 

Now we have an answer. Within minutes of Lonzo becoming a pro, we learned unequivocally that, yes, NBA players will target the Lakers rookie out of resentment for his father.  Read more…
