Bummed about the unofficial end of summer? #Millennial is here to mourn those dog days and welcome autumnal bliss.
  • What were the song and movie of the summer? (Please no one say Old Town Road.)
  • As the Southeastern U.S. braces for hurricane Dorian, please be safe and evacuate if necessary. Contrary to popular belief, thoughts and prayers don’t stand up to hurricane-force winds.
  • The Democratic field has been cut in half, but we’re still tired of watching 10 people on a stage trying to stand out from each other. Who are your fab five Dems?
  • It looks like Facebook may be trying to spare our mental health by removing like counts, and by that we mean looking for philanthropic excuses to make more money.
  • If you lose shit all the time like we do, the forthcoming Tile competitor from Apple may be for you. We cover the inanimate and living(?!) precious items we’d tile.
  • Joaquin Phoenix’s upcoming “Joker” is getting rave reviews from the film festival crowd, so it seems like DC may finally be back on track.
  • Laura reviews her experience at Dragon Con over the holiday weekend and tries to convince Andrew and Pam to come with next year.
  • Google that Shit makes a triumphant return and we see just how candid we all are with everyone’s favorite search engine.
  • This week’s recommendations should surprise no one: Apple Card (Andrew), Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation (Laura), and the Great British Bake Off (Pam).

  • Andrew makes a bid for a disturbing piece of American foreign policy history on eBay.
