We’re back from the long weekend, and taking this snack break to wonder who really needs presidents, anyway?


Speaking of bad presidents, it should go without saying that we would make a very special exception for Cher.


Charlie Jane Anders has a fascinating essay over at Polygon about an under-considered alien encounter trope in sci-fi.


Vulture was reading Kasey Musgraves as a gay icon months ago, which may or may not take some of the sting out of Janelle Monae’s Grammy loss for you, depending on your pop music predilections.


Jillian Tamaki’s Toronto fashion drawings bless us all with what is clearly the best part about Canadian winter without having to leave our homes.

Last week brought us Valentine’s Day, and regardless of our feelings about February 14, we got an extreme kick out of this extremely canon list of the five worst dates in Dragon Age.


On the subject of true love, the Captain Marvel website is THE BEST THING ON THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW and we can’t wait for the movie to come out in LESS THAN THREE WEEKS, holy cow!!


If you also can’t wait for Captain Marvel, hold yourself over with this tear-jerker about IntoĀ theĀ Spider-Verse and Miles Morales’s impact on writer Victor LaValle’s family.


And finally, because we love you most of all, dear readers, please enjoy the tweet that saved all our lives.

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internetā€™s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
