We’re almost done with the fourth week of January. In the immortal words of Marty McFly “Did we make it?” As part of our resolution to THINK MORE in 2018, we are continuing our weekly digest of our reads, thoughts and feelings to share with you, our beloved, cranky, smart BYT community. Please let us know what your week was all about in the comments.
In the BYT World:
We launched a radio program. It is called BYT Radio (easy to remember), it happens live every Thursday at noon so you can plan your weekend ahead with us, or you can just listen to it any time and subscribe to it on iTunes.
On the BYT Website:
- We broke your dang weekend down for DC, Gay DC, Chicago and NYC!
- We told you about the best movies of 2017 made by women no objectification please.
- Speaking of women, the women (and not women) marched again!
- Speaking of marching if you have what it takes to be the ultimate local tourist LET US KNOW!
- Ready for those now with less Casey Affleck Oscars? We have the official guide to the 2018 nominations.
- If you’re thinking of staying in this weekend/forever here’s a sweet weekly streaming guide to help you exist solely on your couch. Be your own throw pillow.
Out there in the world we read and discussed:
- Horror author Jack Ketchum died which prompted a deep dive into some old interviews like this one he did about the film adaptation of his short story The Box.
- David Copperfield made consent disappear. Let’s face it the dude who chose to make the Statue of Liberty disappear does not like women.
- I’ve been sitting through a lot of YouTube ads with no option to skip them UNTIL I FUCKING REMEMBERED…
- Great news! El Chapo promised to NOT KILL any of the jurors from his upcoming trial. And you thought chivalry was dead (it’s not because he promised not to kill that too!).
- 🎶Trump’s got a golden toilet🎶 almost.
In weirder / more NSFW news:
- Pop quiz hotshot. Your phone is about to die, who do you chat with? WHO DO YOU CHAT WITH?
- Hey ladies, the Satanic Temple is fighting for your right to choose!
- This sweet 17 year-old boy is asking the Internet how he can ask his 17 year-old trans girl classmate out on a date. YOU WILL CRY.
- Uh 50 Cent neglected to remember he had $8 million in bitcoins. Hey how many bitcoins is 50 cents?
- Jupiter is really beautiful and I would absolutely swipe right on it.
- If you’re a woman with a “nasty snake-filled head,” you’ll never be able to cook your man dinner.
- Breaking News: Chinese scientists have successfully cloned monkeys and now I need them to successfully clone my dog for the rest of my life.
