Jarcuteries, Jorts, Jack Black’s Mom, and Other Rabbit Holes

Behold, the magnificent or totally unnecessary – depending on how you see it – personalized charcuterie, jarcuterie. (The Produce Moms)

I don’t know who’s in charge of summer trends because they need to be stopped. I present to you, long, fake toenails. The stuff nightmares are made of. (Totally the Bomb)

Need a good book to read? We got you covered. (Pajiba)

“Disaster girl” sold her famous meme for $500k for NFT. Let’s be happy for her despite how dumb NFTs are. (Nerdist)

Netflix is sick of you spending too much time scanning what to watch. They’re going to control even that for you with a new “play something” feature. (The Wrap)

The Dana Carvey Show lasted only for 7 episodes but forever in our hearts. It’s available on Plex but remember “You just have to realize, going in, that you’re watching a time capsule of humor, politics, and culture in the 90s.” And if not, totally worth watching a young Steve Carell killing it. (Plex)

Since we’re slowly returning to the office, how about an igloo workspace made from recycled waste? Only in the Netherlands. (Inhabitat)

I have watched this clip of a beautiful, humble, and kind firefighter reaching out to the girl he rescued in an elevator. If they don’t get married I will no longer believe in love. (TikTok)

Aatish Taseer’s piece on India’s current Covid-19 disaster and the survivor’s guilt of watching it from afar is heartbreaking and very relatable for many immigrants. “But when one’s adoptive home thrives, even as the home country flounders, a kind of survivor’s guilt kicks in. Far from being able to enjoy one’s safety, the temptation is to cling to one’s loyalties. (Time)

Autism Awareness Month just ended, but I’m putting this in anyway: I’m loving Paige Layle’s take on autism and confidence. (TikTok)

Pinkshift is your new punk rock band obsession with lead vocalist Ashrita Kumar. (Tidal)

Speaking of women raging, Willow Smith’s Transparent Soul (featuring Travis Barker) is out and it’s a banger. (Youtube)

Watching this 87-year-old Belgian man park his car in this tiny garage is 1 minute and 55 seconds of pure joy. Will not spoil how he gets out of the car once he’s parked. (Upworthy)

If you’re done with the quarantine single life, you can find inspiration in Meet the Patels and put your whole family on a mission to find your boo. I absolutely love this documentary starring, directed and written by Ravi Patel whose immediate and extended Indian family help him find a wife at the ripe old age of 30. Let me tell you, there’s A LOT of extended family. (Plex)

Mother’s Day shout out to Jack Black’s mom, Judith Love Cohen, who helped develop the technology that brought the Apollo 13 astronauts home. (AV Club)

Rain on Your Parade is a new video game where Cloudy, a petty, mischievous cloud goes around ruining everyone’s day. It’s similar to Untitled Goose Game, where instead of a petty cloud, it’s an asshole goose who causes trouble. All very cathartic. (Geeks of Color)

If you’re into games with more heart and less petty wildlife and clouds just being dicks, Life is Strange: True Colors has young Alex Chen using her empathetic powers to find her brother’s killer. (After Ellen)

Get your scissors (or wallets) ready because jorts are back, bitches! (GQ)
