The Internet is Exploding

The Internet is Exploding

Will Smith and Chris Rock, piping plovers, Blue Man Group, Ukrainian hip-hop, and more

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock and that was basically the internet this week.

On remembering, Imani Perry on Our Native Daughters, Ketanji Brown Jackson, sprinkles, GIFs, and more

This week the internet was a good mix of newly published pieces, reposted artifacts, and a lot of coverage of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings.

Dawn Staley, Quinta Brunson, Keke Palmer, Trevor Noah on the Kanye-Kim-Pete controversy, ‘Songs That Got Us Through It’, beefs, the way things are, stories, and Normani.

The internet was fun this week.

We're living in a simulation, Grimes, Brittney Griner, TikTok and the White House, debating debate, anti-LGBTQ legislation, and more

I mostly enjoyed the internet this week.

Sherrilyn Ifill, Jessica Lynne in Montana, how to apply makeup, Ukraine, Euphoria, Casual Geographic, and more

I was not feeling the internet or being online much this week, and everything I consumed felt extremely disparate.

Ukraine, Ketanji Brown Jackson, college basketball, Arthur, race and class, and more

A lot happened this week.

Mo'Nique, Zora Neale Hurston, Venus and Serena Williams, the Olympics, Kanye and Kim, and more

The internet was very good, but also very dramatic this week.

Harvard and abuse in academia, Twitter dynamics, Betty Davis, the transatlantic slave trade, freeing Washington's last orca, Awkwafina, and more

My Instagram was hacked last weekend so it has been a WEEK on the internet for me!

Black southernness, divesting from Spotify, Hannah Traore, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, and more

The internet had a good mix of drama, long reads, and things I simply enjoyed this week.

Love, death, mourning, the South Georgia Museum, avalanche rescue and climate change, Lana Del Rey and the US Army, and more

The internet was weird this week.

André Leon Talley, Drakeo the Ruler, Zora Neale Hurston, Tonga, Wordle, Joss Whedon, important Zillow finds, and more

Damn.

Gentrification of consciousness, climate change and insects, Michaela Jae Rodriguez, the Bronx Fire, port-a-potties, and more

The internet was sad, and funny, and beautiful this week.

Country music, Whitney Houston, grief and hoodies, remembering Betty White and Sidney Poitier, the Teletubbies, and more

So much has happened on the internet in the past two weeks, and I’m still catching up on year-end highlights and things from December.

The 2021 list of lists!

Highlights: Longreads and essays, those we lost, music, TV, memes and internet culture, and weird websites.

Losing bell hooks, remembering Greg Tate, being single in America, speeding, offline and the wilderness, cheesy pasta, the Throat Goat, and more

A lot happened on the internet this week.
