Jill Baughman


I'm the copy chief & an occasional writer for The Stir. I really like grammar and words and very nerdy books, which is weird to most people. I live in uptown New York City, but you can always find me at a Pittsburgh Steelers bar during football season on Sunday. I like the Steelers so much that I even blog about them.

    Is this Breaking Bad meets Weeds meets real life? Meth making is not so glamorous and won't win you an Emmy when reality gets involved, sadly. Especially with young children. According to police, a Volusia County (why is it always Florida?) mother was arrested after her 7-year-old son reportedly told his mother's boyfriend's brother that she was making methamphetamine in the trunk of her car.

    Briana Buchanan, 27, was arrested on Friday. Her son, heartbreakingly, showed the authorities "mommy's bad stuff in her car," said the police report.

    The report also said that the boy told police, "Mommy goes to the store and lies to the people, saying she is sick and needs medicine."

    Hope you didn't just recently eat a meal! If you're a fan of True Blood, you're probably well aware who Jim Parrack is. He has played Hoyt Fortenberry ever since the first season. In the weirdest news of the day, apparently he told Vulture that he actually drinks human blood. For, like, fun. He talked about it during the opening night of Broadway's Mice and Men, and from all accounts, it sure doesn't sound like he was kidding.

    "I was being literal. I like the real deal," he said. When he was asked why he likes drinking blood, he answered, "Um, I guess for the same reason some people want alcohol? Or for the same reason some people want, I don't know ... milk? Or Kool-Aid?"

    Ummm, drinking blood is the same thing as drinking Kool-Aid? Really? And you also gotta wonder: Exactly whose blood is this dude drinking?

    Well, this could be even more tabloid bull shit, on top of everything we have already read and seen, but this is coming from Us Weekly, which is a rather reputable source as far as sources go. And it's their cover story! They claim that Beyonce is "done" and is preparing to divorce Jay Z. Is it really the beginning of the end for this power couple? Sources to Us revealed that Beyonce, after her On the Run tour, has already been making preparations to file for divorce. Pretty vague, but still, if official paperwork really is getting ready to be filed, looks like we can expect an announcement when the tour is over.

    Apparently the 32-year-old mother of Blue Ivy has "a plan of action in place" whenever she decides to pull the plug on her marriage. One source says "she is done" after their last shows in Paris, France.

    Do you believe?!? Maybe after seeing this, you will. Last month, a photo came out that showed some kind of mysterious shadowy figure on the surface of the moon. Because information is exchanged so quickly and freely thanks to the Internet, everyone who saw it immediately formed their own (rather interesting) opinions about it. 

    Apparently a YouTube user called "Wowforreeel" looked at the figure using Google Moon, images that NASA lets the public view for free (how nice of them!). Now it could be some sort of random shadow or glitch or any number of natural things, but what fun is that? Take that hit of acid and come along to see what the crazy Internet conspiracy theorists have come up with.

    Fans of the television series Game of Thrones are very, very well aware that it's based on A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin. Come on, what GoT fan hasn't heard their literary-minded friend scream, "THAT WASN'T IN THE BOOK!!" during at least one point in every single episode? But book fans are admittedly quite nervous about the future of the franchise. The television series is catching up with the books, and with two books left to go, and it seeming like Martin is taking foreeeeeeeeever to finish things up, he may not be able to wrap everything up before, um, you know ...

    And maybe it's because he's overthinking things a little bit. No matter how hard he tries, it's going to be hard to surprise some of the fans who are just so damn nerdy, they may have predicted a couple of the big plot twists that Martin has been tirelessly leading up to. And the author has finally admitted that they actually may have gotten some of it right!
