Nintendo is building a theme park. Fingers crossed for a petting zoo. Here’s what was trending this week:
In entertainment:The nine planets of Asgard are in alignment and Svartalfheim is retrograde in Hawkeye’s stars through June, this is the dawning of the Age of Ultron (Age of Ultron). Sadly, it’s also the waning of the age of Mindy. Plus, a happy ending for Orson Welles’ unfinished film if an Indiegogo campaign can change where the story stopped.
In excess:A parade of famous people at the Met Gala, each more nearly-naked than next, but, you know, for the art.
In the Game of Thrones:You either win a majority of the seats in Parliament or try to form a ruling coalition. Yesterday’s UK election pitted the raw animal magnetism of Labor Party leader Ed Miliband against David Cameron’s conservative Tories. The royal baby, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana looked on and laughed at the antics of her future vassals—or, possibly, the Queen’s dogs.
In music:Barvura and ballon at the ballet. Plus, Our Lady of Moxie, Taylor Swift (taylorswift) hit the road on her 1989 Tour of the world. And Miley Cyrus’s Happy Hippie Foundation to fight homelessness and advance LGBT+ rights.
