‘Succession’ Season 2 captures the trainwreck of late capitalism

TwitterFacebook

Succession is hardly the first show to notice that the rich are not like you and me. We’ve all heard the power corrupts, that money is the root of all evil, and also that greed is good; we’ve all ogled the reality-show mansions and indulged in the princess fantasies. 

What makes Succession stand out, however, is that it’s the rare show about wealth that doesn’t make it look particularly fun. The first season of Jesse Armstrong’s HBO drama introduced us to the Roys, the tight-knit clan…

TwitterFacebook

TL;DR: You can get a versatile Margaritaville Bahamas frozen concoction maker on sale for $149.99 at Walmart, a $50 savings on its usual price.


Jimmy Buffett is a name synonymous with unironic Hawaiian print shirts, a fandom of “Parrotheads,” and of course Margaritaville — both the earworm anthem and the vacation hotspot with a kitschy menu. The founding father of every Floridian retiree’s subculture also created a line of Margaritaville frozen blenders so you can it can live out a…

‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’ and the death of reason

TwitterFacebook

Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein is a 32-minute Netflix movie that defies reason.

It begins with its name, Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein. It’s an unreasonably cumbersome Monster-on-Frankenstein sandwich that immediately alienates and turns away what I can only imagine are the vast majority of Netflix subscribers and their freeloading friends and family members, who use the service to watch movies and TV shows that have mostly already been deemed…
