STREAMING ONLY CREATES THE ILLUSION OF INFINITE CHOICE, IN FACT OUR ACCESS TO FILMS HASN’T BEEN THIS TENUOUS SINCE THE PRE-HOME VIDEO ERA. THE AVERAGE BLOCKBUSTER CARRIED ABOUT 3X AS MANY FILMS AS ARE CURRENTLY STREAMING ON NETFLIX, PHYSICAL MEDIA IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EV- pic.twitter.com/g4cWki9Wgk

From attending a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure exhibit, to dressing up as Sailor Moon at Summer Sonic Festival, Megan Thee Stallion is really out here living her best anime life in Tokyo, Japan. I love to see it, not to mention I love to see Megan making anime cool again for the Hotties. Bring on Nerd Girl Winter!

FINNEAS AND BILLIE EILISH GOT THREATENED BY THE DUOLINGO OWL
Duolingo sitting proudly on the 1st page of my iPhone’s home screen, as if it has been opened ONCE in the last two years
— FINNEAS(@finneas) August 18, 2022
LMAO. I feel so very seen. I really thought I was going to come out of lockdown sounding like a Spanish abuela, but here I am, a couple of years on, neglecting the Duolingo app and still only 0.5% fluent. Just make sure that evil green owl doesn't see this. Oops, too late. RUN, BILLIE EILISH, RUN!
… is that a threat? https://t.co/JZ7skjfh7O

PHOEBE BRIDGERS CELEBRATED HER BIRTHDAY WITH PAUL MESCAL
— traitor joe (@phoebe_bridgers) August 17, 2022
Me every time Phoebe Bridgers posts a photo with her boyfriend, Normal People and The Lost Daughter's Paul Mescal: "Jesus, I see what you've done for other people, and I want that for me." "Relationship goals" really doesn't cover it. I fully want them to adopt me. P.S. Shout out to Phoebe's Lucy Dacus hat!

LIL NAS X ANNOUNCED HE WAS DIAGNOSED AS LACTOSE AND TOLERANT
i’m 23 years old and i’m just now figuring out i’m lactose and tolerant
— NASARATI (@LilNasX) August 20, 2022
Not me reading this as "lactose intolerant" about 1,000 times, only to realize it actually says "lactose and tolerant." WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME, LIL NAS X? That said, I'm relieved to see he isn't as allergic to milk as I initially thought, as the man was quite frankly chugging it down that time on Hot Ones!
I just noticed.

CARDI B TOOK ME BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD WITH THIS TWEET ABOUT WWE
I used to love them….they was such a sexy ass couple …This was truly my wwe era …even tho I was a Trish Stratus girl I used to love this couple https://t.co/m5Ur4buumP
— Cardi B (@iamcardib) August 22, 2022
It's the way Cardi B is taking me back to my childhood when I'd stay up to watch Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown with this tweet? While Edge and Lita were The It Couple, though, my loyalty belonged to Triple H and Chyna. But Trish Stratus was for sure the greatest WWE Diva!

LIZZO REMEMBERED THAT TIME SHE DRESSED UP AS SAILOR MOON
This goes viral at least once a year lol https://t.co/BydoOn7Qa8
— FOLLOW @YITTY (@lizzo) August 21, 2022
As much as I loved seeing Megan Thee Stallion getting in touch with her inner Sailor Moon, it only feels right to acknowledge the first to do it. Lizzo playing the flute and hitting the shoot while dressed up as Sailor will never get old. MEGAN AND LIZZO COSPLAY COLLAB WHEN? *Hyperventilates*

If there's one thing about me, I'm going to live vicariously through Dua Lipa's Twitter and Instagram accounts. LMAO. The Future Nostalgia singer and her best friends are really out here showing the girlies how birthday celebrations are done in Ibiza, Spain, huh? And this leather maxi dress? It's giving goth!
pulled this dress out my vault for birthday dinner pic.twitter.com/4Pb0frj6AI

MUNA MEMBER NAOMI MCPHERSON SUCCESSFULLY RETURNED A PACKAGE
returned a package today which is kinda crazy for me bc typically i'll order something and if it's wrong i will likely be deeply overwhelmed by the idea of returning it and inevitably keep it until my death
— naomi (@flurtcobain) August 22, 2022
A WHOLE PERSONAL ATTACK. MUNA's Naomi McPherson is undoubtedly one of my favorite tweeters, but I'll be honest, some of their content hits far too close to home. Case in point: This. Having to return a package is probably top of my Social Anxiety Fears list. Like, let me take the L and go, okay?
thank you <3 pic.twitter.com/AksF3R0ltX

GRIMES MARKED 10 YEARS SINCE SHE DROPPED THE VIDEO FOR "GENESIS"
Ten years since Genesis pic.twitter.com/k4oTCir9Kg
— (@Grimezsz) August 22, 2022
Can you believe it's been a whole decade since Grimes dropped the truly iconic, legendary video for "Genesis?" From Brooke Candy to the albino python, that video basically defined my entire personality (Translation: My Tumblr account) for the next 10 years to come. BRB, listening to Visions on repeat!
Crazy this day changed my life 4ever thanks for letting me be an artist pic.twitter.com/IChEdZddjw
