Webtacular World Issue # 176, April 16, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! I hope that everyone had a very happy Easter! I got to spend the weekend in Portland, which turns out to be a pretty decent place. It also didn’t rain, which was a nice surprise, and no one got thrown off my plane, either! On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (multi-read)
What: Miscommunication
Why: Because, let’s just say that people and companies who are in charge of things basically have no idea how to do their jobs. Spicer, Trump, and  United, get your shit together.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: Spiral Downward
Why: Because United’s stock got deservedly destroyed after the video of the airline removing a passenger.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: How About You Don’t Have Sex With Your Aide When You’re Married
Why: Because there is nothing like a gubernatorial sex scandal.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. look)
What: Playoffs!
Why: Because the Warriors have a pretty good chance of winning it all again.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. watch)
What: The Last Jedi
Why: Because Star Wars.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (1 hr. listen)
What: Damn.
Why: Because Kendrick Lamar’s latest album is fire. Oh, also, there’s new John Mayer, too, I guess.

ART THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Girl Vs. Bull
Why: Because it is an interesting question as to whether or not an artist has control over how their art is perceived, even when the answer is undeniably no.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: City Of Books
Why: Because Powell’s is an entire city block filled with everything fit for print. And probably some things that aren’t.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Down With The Rebellion
Why: Because the newest Battlefront lets you play as the Empire. Especially since you can’t buy any new Nintendo Classics.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Go Up; Spicy Is Back; The Peeps Are On Fire
Why: Because Internet.

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

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
