Here’s the stuff from this week:

In the world

  • CURRENTLY: a manhunt is underway in Munich after a shooting there.
  • There was a deadly attack in Nice, France.
  • An attempted coup has thrown Turkey into chaos.

The RNC was, maybe, a huge prank or something?

  • Pretty much everyone loved Ghostbusters, and some people who didn’t are being predictably slimy about it.
  • We have our new old young Han Solo and his name is Alden Ehrenreich.
  • Stranger Things is the Goonies of the paranormal.

MCR is not doing a reunion tour. Play a single G on the piano in mourning.

Is "stranger things" good?

IT’S SO GOOD!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!! Warnings before going in: it is an homage to 80s scifi/fantasy films (E.T., Goonies, Poltergeist, Labyrinth, etc.), so there are some relatively scary moments. There is a little blood (Honestly, if you were able to handle OITNB, you’re able to handle this show). The acting is sooo top-notch. Winona Ryder is amazing. THE KIDS ARE ALL AMAZING. And the cinematography is BRILLIANT. It’s only 8 episodes, and it was just released on Netflix on Friday. I’ve never shown my parents a show where my mom didn’t get up the whole time. I’m… obsessed. I’m showing it to all my friends right now.

I spent a whole day watching this incredible 8 episode mini-series on Netflix. This series had me screaming at the second episode and crying in the third. It was like eating Eggo waffles & chocolate pudding for the first time, I couldn’t stop and I wanted more. It was like watching The Poltergeist, The Goonies, Super 8, ET, and Insidious ALL AT ONCE! Don’t even get me started on the soundtrack! If your craving a good old 80′s style hella brill show take a red, because this one is worth the 8 hours!
