When Universal decided to make Jaws 2, they asked my dad to reprise his role from the first movie. Steven Spielberg wasn’t going to direct it though. My dad asked for some insane amount of money. They said, “Richard, that’s an insane number. We can’t pay you that.” And my dad said, “It’s not insane. This is how much I’ll need to live on for the rest of my life, because if I’m in this movie, I’ll never work again.” He passed.

Sequels rarely live up to the original: A lesson Donald Trump apparently never learned.

Apparently REM made him pull the original so this is a follow up with some music he could get the rights to. Hard to make good meme videos when you’re as widely hated by the artistic community as Donald Trump. 

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
