Started drinking right after work on Friday? Sunday Funday’d a little too hard? Your girlfriend force you to spend your weekend at the purgatory that is the mall? Or maybe you just plain old turned off your brain. Well, whatever your reason is for not knowing what the hell happened, we’ve got you covered.

This is COED’s What The Hell Happened This Weekend?


Pop Culture

James Franco’s new movie, The Disaster Artist, premiered to rave reviews.

Rotten Tomatoes

-The ninth (and likely final) season of Curb Your Enthusiasm came to a close.

Darka German series that premiered on Netflix, is being favorably compared to Stranger Things. I watched the first episode, and while it’s certainly compelling, the English-dubbing is quite a hurdle.

Black Mirror continues to release trailers for their newest batch of episodes, with the latest being the most disturbing yet.


News & Politics

-On Friday, Michael Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI.

-The Supreme Court will hear Chris Christie’s challenge to the nation’s federal gambling laws.

-The latest tax bill, a law that has the potential to affect millions of lives, included handwritten passages. 

-The President of the United States continued to endorse Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including women who claim to have been underage at the time.


Sports

-The four teams in the college football playoff will be Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma & Alabama. The Pac 12 and Big 10 are without a playoff team.

-The 2018 World Cup draw was on Friday. The United States, Italy, Chile, and the Netherlands are some of the notable teams absent.

-Case Keenum & the Minnesota Vikings went down to Atlanta to win their eighth straight game, while the Philadelphia Eagles got handled in Seattle.

-This absolutely bananas goal happened in Serie A (Italian league soccer) over the weekend:


College News

-A fraternity at the University of Southern Indiana was suspended due to alcohol and hazing. What else is new?

-Emily Ratajkowski, obviously, DOMINATED Day 3 with arguably the hottest thing you’ll ever see:

🎄On the 3rd day of Christmas my true #LOVEADVENT gave to me @emrata’s amazing polemic on female empowerment. “To me, female sexuality and sexiness, no matter how conditioned it may be by a patriarchal ideal, can be incredibly empowering for a woman if she feels it is empowering to her. The way I dress, act, flirt, dance, have sex – those are my decisions and they shouldn't be impacted by men. Being sexy is fun and I like it. I should never have to apologize for that. My life is on my terms and if I feel like putting on sexy underwear, it’s for me. Personal choice is the core ideal in my concept of feminism. Katie directed us to say ‘Stay Strong’ at the end of each video and I think it's a message from one woman to another. You're watching a video of a girl grinding in lingerie or whatever else and she is looking into the camera at the end saying, ‘you do you, however YOU want to, fuck the rest’. In the wake of the Harvey fallout and women coming forward with incredible amounts of sexual harassment cases, I have been so disappointed to hear women talk about "modesty" and "our responsibility" as if we need to, yet again, adjust to make it "easier" for the rest of the world. I'm tired of having to consider how I might be perceived by men if I wear the short skirt or post a sexy Instagram. I want to do what I want to do. Feminism isn't about adjusting, it's about freedom and choice. Do you think viewers will understand that, given the current wider conversation about the sexual objectification of women? why or why not? What are the risks? This is something I've battled with personally and publicly. I've had men comment on sexy images of me online and say "this is empowering to you? Ha! I just masturbated to it so hope you feel good about yourself!" I guess that's the way people can react, which ironically, ultimately serves my point. I don't care about your reaction or what you do with my expression of self. In fact, it has nothing to do with you at all and that's the point-which is why it feels good. Ultimately, if a woman wants to wear a burka or nothing at all, it's great if it's what she wants and feels good about.”💥#STAYSTRONG Link in bio to full film
