The “Andy’s Dad” theory from Toy Story has been floating around the internet for a while. Now, the full story of how the boy’s father fits into the movie’s world has been released, and oh wow is it ever sad. Like, way too sad. Polio sad. The problem is, some other Pixar bigwigs are calling it “fake news.” What do you think? Was this a story only known by a few, or was it made up? Either way, I’m ending the day in a puddle of feelings. (via i09)
Happy Pride to those who have spent this weekend celebrating! Among all the very cool happenings this weekend, there’s now a rainbow crosswalk outside the Stonewall Inn in New York. (Via Gothamist)
Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the Black Lives Matter movement intersected with the Pride Parade in Seattle today in honor of Charleena Lyles. Some outlets are reporting this as a clash, but those I’m hearing from in the area make it sound more like a mutually respectful collaboration/cohabitation.

Today, there’s video of Paulson singing Animaniacs’s “Yakko’s World” song FROM MEMORY. He even added in an updated verse. (Via Nerdist)

Have you been watching Netflix’s G.L.O.W. this weekend? Do you love it? If so, you’ll want to check out this interview with the real women the show is based on. (Via Inverse)
Also of interest to G.L.O.W. fans (or anyone, really): Betty Gilpin (who plays Debbie) wrote a beautiful piece about “What It’s Like to Have Pea-Sized Confidence With Watermelon-Sized Boobs.” (Via Glamour)
That’s it on my end. What did you all see today?
