On August 25, 100 men showed up in suits at the Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Hartford to greet each and every student on their way into class.

The trailer for Idris Elba’s new movie is extremely intense

Who needs Bond?

The trailer for Idris Elba’s new movie, Beast of No Nation, might make you acutely anxious, but it’s designed to. Helmed by Cary Fukunaga, it follows the path of a young child soldier and will be Netflix’s first feature-length original film.

The trailer isn’t the only thing that’s intense: during filming, Elba nearly fell off a cliff and Fukunaga caught malaria. So there’s that!

My mom is so needy. And now she just told me she’s thinking of moving closer.

I love my mom, but she’s incredibly needy. She still lives in the town I grew up in, in Connecticut, and I live a few hundred miles away, but sometimes she calls me multiple times a day. If I don’t pick up a couple times in a row, she lays a guilt trip on me. We were talking the other day, and she said she was thinking about moving closer to me. Honestly, the only thing that keeps our relationship intact is the sanity that those few hundred miles of distance gives me. What do I tell her? I’m not sure how serious she is about this “plan,” but even the thought of it is giving me heart palpitations.
