Stop what you’re doing and take a peek out the window. Is the sun shining a little brighter? Are songbirds jubilantly whistling in the distance? According to the swirling mysteries of the stars it’s because — since precisely 4:50 p.m. EST yesterday — Mercury is officially out of retrograde. Good things are happening every which way right now. Let’s take a moment to break down the best.

1. Uniqlo and Lemaire have teamed up again.

Whether you missed Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran’s first collection for the Japanese chain or are just hungry for more, round two doesn’t disappoint. The line — which is inspired by French holidays in the ’60s — drops on March 4th, just in time for a spring break getaway. (And yes, watching old Brigitte Bardot movies with the heat cranked up qualifies.) [Vogue]

2. A new Kayne album is in the works.

And because there’s no reason to not watch it for a 16th time, let’s take a quick Panda break.

3. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled programming! Speaking of which, it’s going to be real good on Netflix in February.

Cruel-Intentions-Man-Repeller

The new line up includes Cruel Intentions, Charlie’s Angels and season one of its new Full House reboot, Fuller House. To round out all that nostalgia-filled streaming, I suggest whipping up some of your favorite childhood snacks. You’ll get a twofer with this recipe for S’mores Rice Krispie treats. [Entertainment Weekly]

4. If you’re in more of a close-your-eyes-and-put-on-a-podcast mood, The New York Times is releasing a great one.

Judd-Apatow-Modern-Love-Man-Repeller

Based on the newspaper’s beloved “Modern Love” column, the streaming series will highlight notable submissions read by different actors and actresses — including Judd Apatow, Sarah Paulson and January Jones — and feature exclusive conversations with the writer of each story. You can download the first two episodes here. [The New York Times]

5. That sounds like something Bill would be into. Bill always does the right thing — whether Mercury is in retrograde or not.

Allow me to introduce the Internet’s favorite meme of the moment: a stick figure man named Bill whose sanctimonious actions are narrated in bold script for the benefit of your Facebook feed. Example: “This is Bill. Bill does/doesn’t do X. Bill is smart. Be like Bill.” Most people, it turns out, CANNOT STAND BILL, and the parodies have already begun.

Bill or not, you are now completely primed to enjoy a life that’s not cosmically doomed. Next challenge: Picking out this afternoon’s snack. And if you need to waste more time, talk to us in the comments below.

    I can tell it’s no longer in retrograde since I have been exceedingly productive today. Must be true then, right?

    Ah! I was going to check if it had gone out of retrograde! Anyway, retrograde or not I took the plunge and got a pixie cut.
    Also, I hate Bill and Kanye West.
    And I love everything about the Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran collaboration.
