Afternoon Snack

Happy Monday! Here to distract you from confronting the fact of a new work week, we have a whole host of A+, high-quality Nerd Shit, just for you!


First, we’ve got a real doozy of a longread about Bioware’s new game, Anthem. Time to get disillusioned about your favorite charming writers and the terrible working conditions that surround them!

And if that’s gotten you down, we’ve got something to cheer you back up — Carol and Tuesday is coming to Netflix this Wednesday (April 10th), and we could not be more pumped.

Keeping that good news train rolling, we just recently stumbled upon a truly incredible artist — doing fashion illustrations based on pokemon! It’s all I ever could have dreamed!!

And to sandwich off this little snack, we’re closing with another longread — this time about race and diversity in the romance genre. It’s all so very much Our Interests.


Some good, some bad — a perfectly balanced snack. We’re ready to face the new work week with our expectations thoroughly moderated.

Why was the crew scared of it? Rewatching the movie as a pre-teen filled in the blanks. The crew feared the unknown, and this alien monster, for me, represented the misunderstood. I associated this monster with how I saw my body: strange, grotesque, and unnatural. It took me until my thirties to confront and reclaim my monsters.
