Back in 2011, the state-owned China Film Group released “The Founding of a Party” for the 90th anniversary of the CPC. The movie stunk, but it HAD to be a blockbuster, so everyone going to see Transformers or Harry Potter got a ticket stub saying TFOAP instead. That way the box office was artificially inflated and an… Read more
My first thought was A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov. Perfect example of the arrogant, cynical, calculating, emotionally unavailable dude that just gets womens’ heads all twisted up and leaves nothing but a trail of fire behind him. Good book!
I will be very interested to see a full breakdown of voter demographics. One of the articles of faith I used to believe in was that there were no longer enough Bigoted White Dudes left for a path to presidential victory. Either that was completely wrong, or Trump expanded his reach beyond the BWD demographic. Read more

It was stars and stripes clipart with little fireworks explosions. I was like PLEASE can we go, but my… Read more
Cosigning with everyone else saying your party plan sounds like a fun time, and I definitely would have gone. I wish I got invited to parties like that. Your sweater game is outstanding!
I impuse-bought a Pomeranian window decal last week, and now I’m torn between putting it on and celebrating all things Pomeranian or leaving it off and maintaining my street cred.
Clearly a trick question — real men don’t go to the doctor, especially not for checkups.
Yeah, that temper just gets a hold of him sometimes.
That game was brutal. Not much fun to watch, even as a Warriors fan. I think they’ve just got ownage over the Cavs — the beatdowns have been too hellacious, especially the rematch this season that was so bad the head coach was fired the next day.
