Andromeda updates, the Rocky Horror Remake, and the Great 90's Swing Revival
May 23, 2016 at 1:57 pm
We’re here to deliver you from the bleary-eyed, hair-wiltingly-humid Monday blues with some articles and links to help speed you through this slow-burn afternoon. What a time to be alive.
While this is slightly old news, there are some updates about Mass Effect Andromeda and we’re freaking out about it!!!
Updates and opinions about the Rocky Horror remake:
- Some folks are super excited to see Laverne Cox take on the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
- Other folks have been pointing out the super obvious problematic parts of the original movie’s plot and characterization.
So what do you think, POMEs? Is this revival a good thing or completely unnecessary?

Over at The Toast, Mallory and Nicole movie-yell about Captain America: Civil War. CC approves of Mallory’s Team Tony rationale.
Millennials on the internet: as bad as we are at calling our grandparents, we sure hate to see sad grandmas and grandpas on social media (unless they’re yelling at Walmart or TGI Fridays). This sweet gramma’s art show went completely unattended and the internet is despondent over it. Unrelated: her bonnet is on point.
Last week, Stereogum ran a Weird 90s Week article series that will plummet you head-first into the glory days of Pop Up Video and forcing your parents to re-watch Spice World ad nauseum. If, like us, you were too young to truly understand the Great 90s Swing Revival but were subjected to talent show performances set to Cherry Poppin’ Daddies (whug), this article series is for you.
(If you remember the 90s and aforementioned 90s Swing Revival singles, this series is also for you).
What are you POMEs reading this week? Feeling pensive about the Great 90s Swing Revival? Let us know in the comments.
