A trend is a friend you’ve actually met several times and enjoy hanging out with.
First, last weekend: So much stuff. There was an amazing show of support for IDAHOT, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. And the Phandom Tumblr Meetup—such lovely phans. Plus JIBcon for the SPN crowd. Finally, for Swifties, the Rock in Rio concert in Vegas, the Rio of Nevada.
In teevee: After 33 years, David Letterman stepped down from his talk show with crankiness and grace. And on The Flash, Barry Allen goes back in time through a wormhole instead of reversing the rotation of the earth like a normal superperson.
In crime: The Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, hosted a 165-person shootout between rival biker factions. Conspicuously missing from the media coverage: words like “thug,” “gangbanger,” and “riot.”
In music: More Tay. This time at the Billboard Music Awards where she won everything before blowing up the building.
In comebacks: Fossil-crazy audiences are boning up on their archaeology to prepare for Hollywood’s latest dinosaur romp.
In big cats: Lions are definitely having a moment.
In perfect people: All hail Amy Poehler, queen of Cannes, counselor of camp. May this American summer be your wettest ever.
From you guys: Some of the best damn character design anywhere. Keep drawing and writing and making your own entertainment.
