100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Grumpy Cat on Lifetime This Weekend

Posted By on Thu, Dec 4, 2014 at 12:19 PM

If you haven't gotten your full dose of meta-Lifetime network Christmas movies, or you're still waiting for your own cat's meme to turn into an internet sensation and make you millions of dollars, or if you're just like me and you can't get enough of the frowny siamese kitty named Tardar Sauce...

This weekend, Lifetime debuted the first ever meme-gone-movie, Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever
And everyone is talking about it...from it's top 10 best and worst Grumpy Cat moments to think pieces on the larger implications of a meme becoming a movie. 

In "Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever," Grumpy Cat is a lonely cat living in a mall pet shop. Because she always gets passed over and never gets chosen by customers, this kitty develops a sour outlook on life until…one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with Grumpy Cat. A unique friendship is formed between the two when Chyrstal finds she is the only person who can hear this unique feline talk. In the middle of the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an expensive exotic dog she can’t stand and rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes on Christmas Eve. Will Grumpy Cat learn the true meaning of Christmas, or will it be in Grumpy’s words, “Worst. Christmas. Ever?”

Read about it in Rolling Stone in listicle form...

Or on Gawker...
Or in Entertainment Weekly...
Or a more positive review in Wall Street Journal...
