Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Top Comments

We did it! It was touch and go for a while, and there were for sure a few moments during the week in which I thought that we might not do it, but here we are: the weekend. Are you doing anything nice for it? I hope so! One of our last August weekends! OF OUR LIVES, just kidding! (Fingers crossed just kidding.) It is, though, speaking of lasts, Mr. Amrit Singh’s last day over at Stereogum. R.I.P., Amrit Singh. You were a beautiful, wonderful, and talented human being, and I wish you the best of luck in Heaven. Please head over there and pay your respects. Otherwise, though, have a nice weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!

No, Sarabi had a huge fight with Mufasa and had a one-night stand with the head, male cheetah. Technically they were both cheetahs.

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

I grew up when the President did, and I don’t want to scare anyone, but I had to WAIT to use the phone in a house with 9 other people. And about half of the time, when it was finally my turn, my friend’s line was BUSY! And then…THEN…I had to WALK to her house to tell her whatever it was I wanted to say. I am a survivor.
