All the famous people who helped rescue Brooklyn Nine-Nine are now friends

Stars—They’re just like us! They publicly complain when their favorite shows get cancelled, lead the vanguard for the campaign to renew said show, and then form lasting bonds of friendship with their fellow stars in an ultra-secret group chat. Just like we all do! As Mashable reports, that’s exactly what Lin-Manuel…

Paul McCartney, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and a whole bunch of kickass kids showed up for today's March For Our Lives 

People are out on the streets all over the planet today, marching as part of, or in support of, the student-organized March For Our Lives, which hopes to increase pressure on legislators to enact meaningful gun control regulations in the United States.

Lin-Manuel Miranda releases the "Marvel/DC crossover" of musical theater 

For his latest “Hamildrop,” Lin-Manuel Miranda has teamed up with fellow Tony winner Ben Platt, star of Dear Evan Hansen.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Weird Al, and Jimmy Fallon geek out over "The Hamilton Polka" on The Tonight Show

For all their individual achievements and talents, there aren’t three bigger goofballs than Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jimmy Fallon, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, as shown on Friday’s Tonight Show. Sure, Miranda is one letter short of an EGOT, Al is a quadruple Grammy winner and musical human joy machine, and Fallon... has his…

How lucky we are to be alive right now: "Weird Al" Yankovic has released a Hamilton polka 

“Weird Al” Yankovic and Lin-Manuel Miranda, both maestros in their different ways, have now merged with Yankovic’s Hamilton polka parody, filtering Miranda’s dynamic hit musical through the exuberantly goofy medium of Yankovic’s accordion. Though produced independently, “The Hamilton Polka” was released this morning…

The Decemberists and Lin-Manuel Miranda team up for a new Hamilton song celebrating Ben Fucking Franklin

Hamilton’s been around for long enough at this point that at least a little bit of the freshness surrounding Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking hip-hop historical musical has inevitably rubbed off. Still, Miranda’s not one to rest on his laurels; a year after releasing the well-received Hamilton Mixtape, he announced…

Stephen Colbert hits $1 million in Puerto Rico donations thanks to awkward celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda

After Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, and then humiliated and bewildered by the supplies-lobbing, mayor-mocking dumbassery of Donald Trump, the good people of that beleaguered island could use some good news. And, on Thursday’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert, that’s what they got (those with restored…

Trump is just so damn sick of those whiny babies in Puerto Rico and their stupid humanitarian crisis

After a couple of days in which his responses to the crisis in Puerto Rico somehow managed to lurch themselves over the increasingly low bar labeled “presidential behavior,” Donald Trump apparently looked at the standards of basic human decency this morning and said, “Fuck it, let’s do limbo instead.” Taking time out…

BoJack runs away from it all, and BoJack Horseman collides with a wrenchingly tragic past

After BoJack Horseman’s season three finale, I had a lot of questions about where things were going to go. BoJack had, at the final moment of “That Went Well,” lost everything that he cared about. His biography was an expose of his awfulness, his movie was a digitally altered reinvention of the story he cared about,…
