September, 2019

September 1st, 4:47 p.m. - My main consolation right now is that people love Bailey and Mariah as much as I do

So You Think You Can Dance – "Top 8 Perform": I...may have teared up a little at the "You Will Be Found" routine. I will neither confirm nor deny. P.S. America, I will avenge Benjamin. Just wait. Rating: 4 weird rooftop structures

September 5th, 2019, 8:01 p.m. - I do want to be Nastya when I grow up, though

37. The Swallows (Lisa Lutz)
There are some books you read quickly because you can't wait to see what happens. Then there are books you read quickly because you're bored and want to get through it so you can move on to something else. This is the second kind.

Up next: Because Internet (Gretchen McCulloch)

September 7th, 2019, 2:17 p.m. - Hey, the judges finally made a decision I agree with!

So You Think You Can Dance – "Top 6 Perform": This is a great final four. Any of them would be worthy of the title. I'm still pulling for Bailey or Mariah, but Sophie has held her own, and I always knew Gino would do well. Rating: 4 kisses, planned or otherwise

September 13th, 2019, 8:04 p.m. - Now someone explain what a VSCO girl is

38. Because Internet (Gretchen McCulloch)
A little dry in spots, but super-informative. I should have taken a linguistics class in college. I think I would have loved it.

Up next: The Warehouse (Rob Hart)

September 14th, 2019, 11:52 a.m. - Making it official

So You Think You Can Dance – "Top 4 Perform": Almost every year, the judges say that the final four is one of the best ever, but this year, it's true. I would like to formally back Bailey as the winner. Judging by the fact that the audience kept chanting his name, he has an excellent shot at winning. Rating: 5 eyerolls at the Mariah/Sophie routine, though
