Next comes a conversation about said thing, where (usually black) people articulate exactly why the racist thing was racist.

Unfortunately, the marriage between these three is usually unsuccessful, as the fried chicken sandwich tends to be a...

So...Um, Did Rue Die? So...Um, Did Rue Die?

I’m still processing some aspects of both Euphoria’s season finale and the entire completed season. (Namely, whether the show is actually good, or if I just enjoy it and think it is.)

Later this month, my wife and I will celebrate our five year anniversary. Which feels like an accomplishment.

Last night’s episode of This Is Us (Season 3, episode 16) had me in my Drake feelings, like when he wondered if Keke loved him.

Last week, The Wife Person and I had a "we're not arguing, but we're not completely good" four day stretch that began while binge watching Game of Thrones and ended in the parking lot of a Market District Giant Eagle.
