It's Monday, and I'm going to list off, in order, the things that I've watched over the past 24 hours that have given me joy.

First: this video of a band called BlacRabbit doing a near pitch-perfect cover of the Beatles in the NYC subway (tell me they don't sound like Lennon/McCarthy, seriously). Second: this documentary on the romance industry called Love Between the Covers, which I'm watching in preparation for a really fun thing we're going to be doing on SYFY Fangrrls soon. Third: The Cloverfield Paradox, which may have premiered to mixed ratings after the Super Bowl this year - but you can chalk me up as being from the version of Earth that actually liked the movie.

These are the links I found myself reading today; check them out!
