Things We Saw Today: Denny’s Serves Up a Bit of Relief From Your Everyday Existential Dread

Thanks, Denny's. You're killing us.

Denny’s, the perennial late-night hangout for the underaged, the overaged, and everyone in between (so literally everybody I guess), continues to impress with their strong social media game. Of course in this specific case, by “impress” I actually mean “distract us from the horrors of everyday life in this brave, frightening new world.” Thanks, Denny’s. You’re killing us. (via Pajiba)

  • Speaking of existential dread, apparently James Mangold is already working on a “black and white cut” of Logan, which would make the entire thing feel like either Mad Max: Fury Road or a long, depressing Johnny Cash video a la “Hurt”. (via /Film)
  • Speaking of being hurt, Gayle King insisted that Oprah Winfrey would not be running for president in 2020. (via Deadline)

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Lorde, hasn’t it? At least, it was a while, as she dropped a brand new song and music video for “Green Light” this morning. It’s pretty good, and extra radio-friendly (for all the great and terrible things that could mean to you). (via Business Insider)
