My ex lived on the UES and he was broke as a joke. (He later moved to Inwood- bigger place, cheaper rent. Dunno if he still lives there; we don’t speak.) The UES isn’t all penthouses and money; it’s got small shitty apartments like every other NYC neighborhood. My ex lived in a tiny studio in a walk-up building. Also Read more

Well, I doubt she had a lot of options given the time period.

The CARES Act was supposed to provide $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits on top of whatever your state provides, so if you’re in NY and you’re entitled to state UE benefits of $535 per week based on your previous income, you’d get $1135 per week. That has since expired though, and many people didn’t even Read more

Yeah, when I was last in therapy I knew I wanted someone Black because I am, and sometimes I have to say shit about white people and racism. I didn’t think much about age beyond “older than I am,” mainly because someone younger than I am would be pretty inexperienced. I tend to gravitate toward women doctors; my eye Read more

Florida’s MAX is $280 a week?! So if you were making $100K you’re down to $280 a week? Good Lord. If you were laid off from a $12/hour job are you looking at double digit pay per week?

Yep. Federal student loans were paused with 0% interest for a few months but are resuming this month (I just got an email about that), so that’s another bill due.

I think I read in one of those “what’s something people would be shocked to know about your industry?” Twitter threads that Hallmark does not do interracial couples, period.

Massive foreclosures, evictions, debt defaults, car repossessions ... I’ve been saying that I think fall and winter are going to be very bleak and I stand by it.

I read on Twitter (so: grain of salt) that she had a concussion, so she might have been too out of it.

Me too - I was too old for her Disney stuff and I didn’t see The Greatest Showman or the Spider-Man movies she was in. This is my first exposure to her (aside from her appearances on red carpets; she’s really beautiful). I think she’s very talented. Her final scenes of the Euphoria season where she and Jules are going Read more

One of the hardest things about the pandemic for me is not being able to go to the movies. I love the whole experience of going to the movies - blockbuster popcorn movie, art house theater, all of it.

I saw someone reply to the video with “I’m European, isn’t the swastika illegal in America like it is here?” and a bunch of Americans replied that it wasn’t, and also listed a few ways in which Hitler got some of his ideas from American practices. (They weren’t happy about it, they were embarrassed.) I felt ashamed. Read more

Me too! I get a kick out of that, when actor’s voices are so different from their characters. It’s also interesting that the two characters he plays are so different - Hercules Mulligan (whose intro I love - I love “Yorktown”) is so bold and audacious (I think Lin-Manuel said the character’s supposed to be like Busta Read more

Can you imagine the reunion between him and his fellow leaders in the movement in the “happy hunting ground” (my grandfather called it that) - including C.T. Vivian, who went on the same day? Imagining that has made me smile today. I’m picturing lots and lots of hugs.

He is one of my heroes. His impact on the country really can’t be overstated.

I really liked Betty! I recommend it. I know nothing about skater culture but I really enjoyed the show.

She has a horrible voice - when I clicked on the video I thought “This goes out over the airwaves every day? Ugh.” The white New England accent is not pleasing to my ear.

McGee was about ten years older than the actors who played her peers on the show - Danielle Fishel was born in 1981, Ben Savage was born in 1980, and Rider Strong was born in 1979. Read more

When the masked woman swatted her away and told her to get back since she wasn’t wearing a mask, I howled. Get thee behind me!
