Binge away the month

It's almost April and while we could go out and enjoy the (hopefully) nice weather that the month has to offer, the honest truth is that we will probably just be binge-watching shows and movies the whole time. Frankly, Netflix's lineup for the month is—as always—so jam-packed that there's really no reason to see the sun.

April features the debut of Oscar-winning faves such as Erin Brockovich and 2001: A Space Odyssey, among other A-list content. For those rom-com nights when a pint of Ben & Jerry's becomes a valid dinner replacement, movies like The Princess Bride and Something's Gotta Give are only a click away. If you, on the other hand, want to satisfy your inner child, family treats like the Minions movie and Danger Mouse are on deck.

As well, the streaming service has upped its originals game with the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (we can only pray for more iconic guest appearances), a closer look at the murder of wrestler David Schultz in Team Foxcatcher, and others. So get ready to wear those pajamas and forget what the sky looks like because everything you need to binge on is in the gallery below.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
