Webtacular World Issue # 174, April 2, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! We did it! We survived the first quarter of 2017. Sadly, that cannot be said for the majority of the college basketball teams. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The LA Times Is Not Impressed
Why: Because  I doubt a major newspaper has ever taken the time to write this much about how bad a sitting president is, especially in this tone:

“It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a ‘catastrophe.’
Still nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck.”

To reiterate – here’s a complete rundown of all the things Trump has done so far.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: More Middlemen
Why: Because Rentberry doesn’t need to be paid to do this. Maybe we can all live in Teslacity instead.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: How To Sue The President
Why: Because Trump isn’t very good at lawsuits so far.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Whelp, Congress Didn’t Listen, So Now Your Internet Provider Is
Why: Because now everything you do on the Internet can be tracked and sold. You might want to think about using a VPN, but that doesn’t necessarily help you.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: MadBum
Why: Because baseball is back, and that makes me happy.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. 30 sec. watch)
What: Do Not Click If You Are Terrified Of Clowns
Why: Because clowns are terrifying.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: An Old Pretentious Website Celebrates An Old Pretentious Band
Why: Because I’m kidding – Radiohead is a great band, and OK Computer is a great album. Pitchfork definitely needs help though.

PHOTOGRAPHY THING OF THE WEEK (7 min. read)
What: Comparing Photographs
Why: Because the way that the president is portrayed is important.

PODCAST THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: S-Town
Why: Because the makers of Serial crafted another classic American story.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (20 min. read)
What: Feeling Free
Why: Because sometimes you just want to be able do whatever you want in video games. Or sometimes you might just want to click on all the pixels and help a non-terrifying-but-foulmouthed clown.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Cats; Two Kings; April Fool’s Feels Desperate;  Nerf John Wick
Why: Because Internet.

THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: VPN Subscription
Why: Because Brian deserves it.

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
