Finally, you get to be 'Yoncé.
Let's be real. We all know [an infinite number] of people who want to be Beyoncé.
All kidding aside, everyone and their mom, and my mom, would kill to be Beyoncé. People are getting pregnant with twins just to be like Beyoncé. People are marrying rappers who dropped the hyphens from their name just to be like Beyoncé.
EVERYBODY. WANTS. TO. BE. BEYONCÉ. And now, thanks to a new game known as Lemonade Rage, you can be Beyoncé.
The gameplay is similar to Contra, or perhaps the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game – a sidescrolling adventure in which you play as the Queen Bee herself. The premise of the game is that Beyoncé is "wildin" because someone stole her lemons!
As you scroll through the game (on desktop), using spacebar to swing your bat and arrow keys to move up and down, you will encounter cars, advertisements, and fire hydrants that Bey can smash, as well as obstacles (in the form of haters, Illuminati conspiracy theorists, and "bullshit.") The game appears to be a homage to Beyoncé's "Hold Up" video.
The more stuff you smash, the more lemons you earn! And the more lemons you earn, the closer you get to making Lemonade.
Lemonade Rage's release is incredibly timely, coming the day after Beyoncé lost two Grammy awards to Adele.
Lemonade Rage gets a score of 4 lemons out of 5 from Popdust gaming. Infinitely more playable and funnier than the "Cash Me Ousside" game that came out last week, we recommend you check out Lemonade Rage ASAP.
In the opening pages of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Earth is destroyed. Now if that doesn't scream 2020 so far, what does?
In Douglas Adams's 1979 novel, which premiered as a radio series on BBC Radio4 in 1978 (42 years ago—but more about the significance of that number later), Earth is suddenly blown up in order to make room for an intergalactic superhighway. Now, in a year that has—after only 3 months, people—given us a contentious, confusing democratic primary, the death of Kobe Bryant, new and worsening facts about our climate and habitat at large, appalling leadership, and of course the rapid spread of and global shutdowns by the coronavirus (COVID-19), it seems impossible to turn to any source for comfort.
Enter The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: a novel that starts with the global annihilation that we might be heading for and then follows the characters as they cope with new realities, with isolation and loss, an endless information source that brings with it endless anxiety, and an egomaniacal, arrogant, selfish, attention-craving president of the galaxy.

It's time to study.
Now that you've flooded Instagram with photos of black squares, it's time to hunker down for some real activism.
If you're a white person, you're sitting on top of about four centuries of institutionalized racism. In the wake of George Floyd's murder by police and countless Black Lives Matter protests across the nation, it's time to show up—with your body, with your voice, and with your brain.
