New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

Star Eater

Elfreda Raughn will avoid pregnancy if it kills her, and one way or another, it will kill her. Though she’s able to stomach her gruesome day-to-day duties, the reality of preserving the Sisterhood of Aytrium’s magical bloodline horrifies her. She wants out, whatever the cost.

So when a shadowy faction approaches Elfreda with an offer of escape, she leaps at the opportunity. As their spy, she gains access to the highest reaches of the Sisterhood, and enters a glittering world of opulent parties, subtle deceptions, and unexpected bloodshed.

A phantasmagorical indictment of hereditary power, Star Eater takes readers deep into a perilous and uncanny world where even the most powerful women are forced to choose what sacrifices they will make, so that they might have any choice at all.

Today's matches
Czech Republic 🇨🇿 vs. England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (London, 3:00 PM US ET / 21:00 CET)
Croatia 🇭🇷 vs. Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (Glasgow, 3:00 PM US ET / 21:00 CET)

What do the teams need to manifest today?

- Czech Republic needs a win or draw to finish first place in Group D. If they lose, they'll end up in third AND if Croatia wins by marginal goal difference.
- England needs a win or draw to automatically qualify for the knockout rounds. Can still be third with a loss if Scotland wins due to goal difference
- Croatia needs a win against Scotland and they could see a third place finish. A loss or draw to Scotland would eliminate them
- Scotland needs a win against Croatia and they’ll likely qualify for knockouts. A loss or draw to Croatia would eliminate them.

Happy Pride Month: UEFA forbids Munich mayor from displaying rainbow flag colours for Hungary match

Viktor Orban said panem et circenses! Hungary’s shitty government has been investing heavily in sports, especially football, going all out to build new facilities and training schools, making sure the Puskas Arena was filled to capacity for Hungary’s home matches, and turning the crowds into a populist display of far-right symbols and anti LGBT+ banners.

Coincidentally, they’ve also been passing legislation that bans the dissemination of pro-LGBT+ material in schools, tackling the provision at the end of an anti-pedophilia bill to make it harder to vote against it.

Germany will be playing Hungary tomorrow at Allianz Status in Munich, and Munich mayor Dieter Reiter wrote to UEFA asking for permission to lit up the stadium in rainbow colours in solidarity with the Hungarian LGBT+ community. Nice of him! UEFA, who have been involved in many campaigns promoting diversity and inclusion in football, said no. The European football association justified the ruling claiming that the context of the specific request makes it too political (“Thanks God” said Hungary’s foreign minister).

It was a pretty quick decision by UEFA, who are taking their sweet time to condemn Hungary for the discriminatory incidents at their own matches. On the bright side (?) Germany’s captain Neuer was cleared to keep wearing his rainbow armband for the rest of the competition after another investigation, so there's that.

HBO's I'll Be Gone in the Dark airs follow up recap about the Golden State Killer's sentencing

HBO's I'll Be Gone in the Dark aired a recap special last night focused on the Golden State Killer's sentencing and the survivors' finally being able to speak out in court, despite some of them not being able due to seek justice for the crimes committed against them due to statute of limitations.

Despite Joseph James DeAngelo appearing in court as a very feeble old man in a wheelchair confused by where he was, footage from his prison cell showed him seeming much more alert as he jumped up and off his bed to adjust the lighting. "Schubert [the prosecuter on his case] points out that he’s dimming the fluorescent lights in a similar fashion to how he would drape towels over televisions during his attacks."


Consumers Lose Interest in Netflix Films Faster Than Those Made By Major Studios, Study Suggests

WSJ reported that on average, audiences gave Netflix’s original films (Oscar contenders included) a score of 59.1 out of 100, while the critics’ score yielded an average score of 54.4. The research firm (Ampere) also found consumers lost interest in Netflix films faster than those made by major studios.

Ampere measured this with two different metrics: a critics’ score, that offers a weighted average of Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic critics scores; and an audience rating that is based on aggregated public online ratings.

'Karen' Movie Decried as Jordan Peele Knockoff After Trailer Drops

Trailer for film Karen prompted widespread derision after viewers branded it a rip-off of Jordan Peele.
The film tells the story of a racist white woman who seeks to terrorize her black neighbors.

Karen was written and directed by His, Hers & the Truth director Coke Daniels.

It stars Orange Is The New Black actress Taryn Manning in the titular role, with actor Cory Hardrict and actress Jasmine Burke as the neighbors targeted by Karen.

The film doesn't yet have a release date.

Abuser, Chris Brown, abuses another woman.

Chris Brown, serial abuser, got into an argument with a woman in his San Fernando Valley home, and wound up slapping her, because that's how Chris Brown, serial abuser, deals with human beings. Brown has previously plead guilty to felony assault for assaulting Rihanna, and was the recipient of a 5-year restraining order from another victim, Karreuche Tran. These are not the only assaults perpetrated by the abuser in question, but I don't have all day to list all the charges women have brought up against this trash human.

People are likely going to make light of it because he apparently hit her hard enough for her weave to fall out, but that's not cute, so let's not be scum.
