Happy Monday!! We made you some tea! We’ve of course prepared our weekly round-up of internet things, so take a break and enjoy a small Snack to get y0u through the rest of your Monday.
The Obamas’ official presidential portraits were unveiled last week and they are so amazing. 😭
A good thread.
I've been looking at Rufus Holsinger's portraits of Charlottesville's African American citizens for years & always find something new. Right now, I'm fascinated with the the way that the black women who came to his studio looked at this white man & his camera. pic.twitter.com/f3iNCHS0va

Mary J. Blige has been tapped to play Cha-Cha, one of the time-traveling assassins in The Umbrella Academy!! We’re so interested in how they’re going to interpret this role for Netflix, especially that maskkkkk. 😱
In the wake of Rob Porter’s resignation and Trump’s gross dismissal of the accusations against his former White House Staff Secretary, we need to continue to talk about domestic violence.

A live-action TV drama of My Brother’s Husband is being made and I’m just ready to shed all my tears. Look at that promo photo!!!
Friend-of-POME Caitlin Moore (formerly of “Fujoshi Feminism”, currently of “Heroine Problem“) interviewed international hero Saya Yamamoto for Anime Feminist!
“I do recall how I was feeling back then, and I’ll be blunt in saying that I did not like the molded female types that were for male consumption in anime. So, when I was looking for something different, I wanted to destroy something that was just offered as the molded archetypes, and I think my frustration was answered in the form of Michiko and Hatchin.”
The best news of 2018 — JANELLE MONAÉ HAS ANNOUNCED A NEW ALUBM!! Bless the ArchAndroid.
