Things are rough in the world and we could use a drink. You are welcome to join us, and also to peruse these internet deep cuts as we sip our beverages and contemplate this weird, weird timeline we’ve found ourselves living in.

 


 

The Electric Lady has joined the Philip K. Dick sci-fi series!! There is not a more suitable lady out there for Electric Dreaming than Janelle Monáe, so this is really the BEST

 


 

This is a bit of an oldie but a real goodie — the theory is that Anne Boleyn was an extremely funny lady and that’s why everybody was in love with her but also sort of hated her. She wasn’t beautiful or charming she was HILARIOUS and the men around her JUST COULDN’T DEAL. I have chosen to embrace this theory and I will do so forever.

 


 

Turns out the Evangelical Christians that lambast Planned Parenthood and the services they provide often find that sometimes PP is the only resource they can turn to in times of need.

 


 

So this may not be readily apparent, but POMEmag is headquartered in Austin, Texas. The news coming out of Texas isn’t always the most uplifting, so when we saw that our mayor, Steve Adler, really clapped back against this MRA, we were THRILLED.

 


 

There is going to be a Studio Ghibli theme park and maybe Santa is real because this is the thing I have always wanted!!!

 


 

Say goodbye to the queerest tv show on the history of planet Earth. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS / SEIZE THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION / I WILL NEVER GET OVER THIS / ETC ETC

 


 

That’s all we have for you this week, POMEs. I need a refill on this drink, feel free to join me or take your righteous fury to the streets, whichever you prefer.

 

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’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.
