I love your 60 second recaps and will watch them all, even for things that I do not care about, like Sex and the City.
Is there time for you to just do these every day? Pop culture, news, whatever I’ll take it.
good breakdown of bad representation
Please never stop explaining things to us, Joanna.
Looks like I’m the only one excited for this. I rewatched in early 2018 for the first time in AGES and was shocked at how horribly sexist, racist and most importantly/severely HOMOPHOBIC the content was. Seriously, they are SO MEAN to Stanford. His storylines are 100% sidelined and his relationships are trivialized.…
I am relieved not because of spoilers - I’ve seen every episode multiple times. The line is a carry over from Joanna’s synopsis videos of the Oscar nominees, and the way she says the line cracks me up. I just like the way it sounds.
I was going to make the lead story in this morning’s Dirt Bag about Roseanne begging “like 40 motherfuckers” at ABC to not cancel her show, but then I realized, Bob, it’s Friday, and that’s no fun. So, because we could all use a reprieve from this endless cycle of news about a “racist idiot,” let’s begin with…
Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
Hi! Dan from Deadspin here. I have some information to add so the Jezebel commenters can make an informed decision.
Close your eyes—but don’t really; keep reading. Imagine you’re holding a Ruffles With Ridges potato chip in your right hand. It’s perfect: golden and oblong, curved like a wide-ass polynomial function, or Kim Kardashian’s perfume bottle’s hips; sturdy, yet supple. You fly that chip through the air, whizzing every…
Meghan Markle has already stepped into her role as the Duchess of Sussex with the ease, grace, and dignity befitting a Suits star, but we at Dirtcast are not quite ready to let these beautiful, British nuptials go into that good night.
There was a moment in the first few months of my son’s life when I caught a glimpse of perspective about my sleep-deprived desperation. I remember it as the middle of the night, but it might have been the middle of the afternoon—the black garbage bags we had duct-taped in a patchwork quilt of gloom over each of our…
You’re a fun writer, Joanna. I look forward to your novels.
This is cute as shit. Great writeup.
Well this brightened my day, and my day wasn’t even going badly!
This is a great story. Both of my parents like (but don’t love) music and have very specific musical tastes—‘50s and ‘60s R & B for my dad, classical for my mom—and consider anything else “not music.” My husband and I are wild for music and intent on teaching our son (who’s 5) about all genres. He’s currently getting…
this is very very very very cute
How fantastic! What a great story. Your mom sounds mad cool. I grew up with a super young mom that was big on the Hollywood music scene, so I can really appreciate this story. We went to a lot of concerts together.
Joanna, I truly love your mom.
If my mom wasn’t my mom, I’d be convinced she spent her childhood as a character from an iconic, subtly bizarre kid’s book—like Meg from A Wrinkle in Time, though instead of zipping through space via tesseract, my mother was inventing complicated melodrama about the personal lives of the trees that lined her block.
