Oh no doubt. Giselle Eisenberg did a great job for the material she was given. But they clearly wanted to change the character to be more “normal” and less quirky. (I mean, they even addressed the change in the premiere!) I think i was more bothered by the changes in Katy’s friends- how they wrote out Carly Hughes and Read more

Life in Pieces would have been a good pairing with The Unicorn. I always felt that though it was a really good show with a very strong cast, its rating had to suffer because it was after a Chuck Lorre block and like The Unicorn, it seemed made for a different audience and the show had a dramatically different tone.

Especially because fascism is pretty well defined...marriage of state and corporations, nationalism, and finding an “other” to blame all their failures on. AKA...Republicans.

Was it this season on Housewife that Mixon’s character decided to become an obnoxious “mommy vlogger” and it’s portrayed as creative and empowering rather than depressing and, well, obnoxious? I never regularly watched but it was a pleasant enough half-hour.

Yeah, I would agree. The cast departures (Ali Wong was leaving after this season too), and substitutions just didnt work. I think the writers knew too. Read more

I never watched any of those shows, but I was curious if anyone would attribute the end of Housewife to Julia Butters leaving now that she’s been in a Best Picture nominee. I guess this is enough years that it’s not surprising it would end. Here’s Butters as all three roles in a scene from King of Comedy:

I actually thought that was a completely apt and astute way to frame the current political landscape. The democrats are trying to, you know, govern, and if you wanna disagree with how they’re doing it, fine. The republicans aren’t even playing the same game. They’re just trying to stay in power no matter what it takes.

The people Spanfeller retained are the people who can churn churn churn without critical thinking or reading comprehension.

It was transparently a pump and dump scheme when he first announced that Tesla bought Bitcoin. Anyone who got “materially harmed” by this just got an expensive education on why investing in a instrument you don’t understand with a valuation entirely dependent on what one guy tweets about it, is not a sound financial Read more

The entire transaction network for bitcoin is intentionally designed to require an absurd amount of electricity and be slow to verify transactions, for security reasons. It’s one of many stupid things about it. The entire thing uses more electricity than the country of Argentina, and the electricity cost per bitcoin Read more

I’m LAUGHING at all the people who’ve been piling on me over at Lifehacker.

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.

Go buy some tulips, or some emus, suckers!

Whatever Musk’s past deeds and intents, if he actually manages to make cryptocurrencies collapse (and, ideally, the art not-fungus bullshit with them, please), I’ll go as far as raising a drink to him, for real, in real life.

Eh. Better late than never. I can’t stand his ass but I’m not gonna complain about this one.

I stuck with it until about halfway through season 2 but it was just so……I guess earnest may be the best word. Every event and interaction they had was just so wrought and significant. It’s a talented cast and the writing was good, but I just couldn’t take it anymore. Read more
