    He looks like they just photographed his reaction when they told him he was going to be in this thing.

    Cross-posting these tweets from JCC, because I find the letter inherently interesting, as well as the iconography they invented to represent Ms. Markle.

    I feel like instead of a design combining roses and leeks, this would be a better symbol for the new royal couple:

    I’m become hooked on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

    Don’t really go for US comedy, but this is pretty damn good. As you can tell from the visual summary of my viewing experience, it’s brilliant.

    Ok, enough riffing. Before this who knew Andre Braugher, best known for Homicide’s Pemberton, was so good at comedy? And then there’s Terry Crews…

    They’ve been smart with this, they keep the show to a snappy 20mins - which means no padding, no laugh track, no wasted space. It’s damn good.

    Now, now Jay - don't lose your head.

    I remember reading an interview when the show first started, and Terry Crews was just overjoyed to be working with "THE Andre Braugher." It motivated him to bring his A game (I'm sure he was being humble, Crews always brings his best).

    Yes, because high lead emissions are a good thing...

    Not yet. I got a copy when he was in town and got it signed and everything, but I haven't read it. Mostly because I figure I'm so used to him in audio format that I'd like the audiobook, but I also have a strong dislike of buying the same book twice.

    I'll probably have to do it eventually if I want to have a listen, but I can wait.

    As expected, I LOVED the royal wedding. What a great day. There were so many wonderful hats.

    Also, surprise special guest -- Iden Versio?!?! Yeah, Janina Gavankar was not only a guest at the wedding, but she was in the prime seating at the Quire -- you could see her in frame on most of the shots of the couple getting married. Wild.

    She was interviewed on Good Morning America about it a few days ago.

    I for one am glad that the American tradition of merging political figures and C-list celebrities together has now been adopted across the pond. I think it's fitting that a cast member of Suits marries into the royal family the day after it got revealed that Trump's biggest advisors on veterans' affairs are Ike Perlmutter of Marvel and Pete Hegseth of Fox & Friends.

    Listen.

    Actually, I don't have time to chastise you right now because Paradox just announced "Imperator: Rome" which takes the Crusader Kings II character-based gameplay in into the Roman period, which is all I ever wanted in a game. So I'll worry about impertinent hoi polloi later...

    As a Game of Thrones fan, I must say I was bitterly disappointed by the wedding.

    I can't believe there are people out there who still accept the legitimacy of the House of Windsor, in 2018!

    Franz, Duke of Bavaria is still not married, guys. No Royal Weddings going on.

    A wedding without at least three deaths is a dull affair.
