Waterlinks Down (Lucy Liu, The Mindy Project, and More!)

Well, it has been a doozy of a week here at KMWW headquarters (also known as my laptop). In between cruising Halong Bay, getting super sunburnt, and finding out some crazy stuff about the next few weeks, I am bushed. So, have some links.

1. In ladies-are-funny news, Mindy Kaling’s new show, The Mindy Project (which we will be reviewing on Monday), is poised to be this year’s critical darling. But that doesn’t mean it’s without its problems. In These Times looks at how The Mindy Project could be a step backward for women in comedy.

2. In GIF-not-JIF news, Feministing knows just when I need a nice break, so they’ve given us a gift: the Romney campaign’s implosion last week, as described in GIFs. No matter which side you’re on, it’s still accurate. You’re welcome.

3. In downer news, The Daily Beast reports that Detroit prosecutor Kym Worthy has made amazing progress on her quest to investigate the 11,000 police rape kits that she found in a warehouse. They had never been investigated or processed, but in just the first fragment of the kits, Worthy has identified 21 serial rapists, and counting. Depressing, but needs to be done. Now just worry about all the cities where the rape kit backlog is in the thousands, and there isn’t a Kym Worthy making noise.

4. In be-my-friend news, Lucy Liu continues to be terrifyingly awesome. NPR interviews her about her latest role, playing the first female Watson in Elementary. She is fabulous, and very clever. Bow, mortals.

5. In be-my-friend-also, it’s clearly a week for awesome ladies being awesome! Alex Kingston (of River Song fame) talks to The Daily Beast about her roles on Doctor Who and Upstairs Downstairs. Also about what it’s like playing a turn of the century lesbian.

6. And finally, in it’s-Saturday-I’m-tired news, have a video of Taylor Swift being generally adorable, and also reminding us that there’s no shame in dumping someone who doesn’t treat you right.



That’s it for this week, catch us Monday for more reviews and craziness! Crossover Appeal airs on Sunday at 6pm PDT – check out our new Crossover Appeal tab for more!

  1. Water links down with the song of Taylor swift. Don't know why she takes interest and why to make a song on these topics which are not important with top cv. I wish to make these pages because I know finding important notes is really important.

  2. This South Korean game named PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has become very popular yet controversial because of its intense graphics. I am glad to play best casino bonuses in nz listed by icasinoreviews.info online to make money. This game has already banned in several countries of the world since it promotes violence.
