(Welcome to the glorious return of Something for the Weekend from its holiday sabbatical. Some Infinite Guest stuff, some not Infinite Guest stuff. Thank you.)
IT’S A BLUE MONDAY FOR SUNKIST: The attempt to make a jingle out of New Order’s seminal post-punk-pop-disco-whatever-it’s-great “Blue Monday” is detailed here.
STAR WARS, KINDA: Karina Longworth kicks off a series about Hollywood during wartime (hence the name) with an episode about Bette Davis and the Hollywood Canteen for You Must Remember This. There is also a sordidness tracker for each new installment.
BE THANKFUL FOR ELECTRICITY: Because, per Cracked.com, this is what people did for fun before it.
HE DID REMEMBER THE BOURBON, AT LEAST: On Awesome Etiquette, how to handle an uninvited guest.
BUT IS IT TASTEFUL: Vice Sports’ David Roth interviewed probably the world’s foremost author of Rob Gronkowski-based erotica.
