Yes, exactly. The hosts are most important when things go wrong - Sandi brought some of the warmth Mel and Sue had.

Yes exactly! Do you feel like it’s different from the right’s victimhood complex? Because to me it feels a little different - that seems to stem entirely from the whole, when you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression thing. Whether it’s reality based or not, they genuinely believe themselves to be Read more

I 100% agree with you but I think it goes beyond that - he tells middle- and upper-class white dudes that they, in fact, are victims too. We’re all victims of capitalism so we don’t have to look at our varying levels of other forms of privilege. A platform that is about justice - or pretends to be - has to center Read more

I like Warren, she’s what we’ve got. But it looks like she’s finding out that her silence in 2016 did not, in fact, protect her.

Listen, you could have bought something that makes noise or was remote-controlled, so you’re still very low on the petty scale of children’s gifts here.

Wait sorry I’m a little confused. Your mom got your nephew a Switch, which your sister also did. You got Switch games and accessories for your nephew, and a Switch Light for your mom? And your sister said no to both gifts, but is both the switch games + accessories or the gift for her son and your mom?

There hasn’t been anyone truly obnoxious in a while, but I do find the current champion kind of annoying if only because wtf is a “wine tasting consultant”? That shit is made up.

YES. Hulu right now is doing a thing where you watch a 3-minute commercial (which they call a “trailer” to trick you) for iPad. It’s so sappy and horrible. And they want you to do it at the beginning of every episode!! Read more

The list of nominees makes no sense to me, even for the Golden Globes. It also feels like there’s a huge recency bias. Like most of the stuff on the list came out in the past couple months? But maybe I’m just behind on pop culture.

Re: why we still see this, I think it’s a little bit of both, but definitely more the latter. I think it comes down to who gets power, who gets a chance, and who gets recognized - and that’s business as usual both at streaming services and in newsroom and the Academy and wherever the fuck else powerful people are.

Okay, a couple things to point out here. First of all, the assumption that more face-to-face interaction is better for society is not always a sound one, especially in a retail setting. This is also pretty dismissive of people who, for myriad reasons, don’t particularly want to interact with others when shopping. The Read more

Well, luckily, that’s not my take! I don’t think Sarah Dessen books should be a Common Read, and neither does Sarah Dessen.

Ready Player One was chosen and is definitely at the same reading level. And college first years are generally eighTEEN or nineTEEN.

But is there any evidence he’s being “goaded” or is he just getting upset? I mean, people get upset in this tent, and real life. That’s okay. It doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try to do things that might make them upset. Read more

I absolutely agree with this and it has been bothering me about these recaps - it was bordering on concern trolling. Now that I have a bit more context about the author it makes more sense, but there’s still an edge of it I don’t like. I mean, Ruby Tandoh couldn’t look at a whisk without bursting into tears and no one Read more

You have a lot of good advice here already, but one thing I ran into recently was that the in-flight entertainment used wired headphones, like with a normal headphone jack, and all I had were the dumb lightning cable iPhone ones and bluetooth ones. Flights will provide headphones but if you have good ones, it’s worth Read more
