Ha, I was actually raised mormon and can confirm it’s pretty out there but I don’t know enough about JW’s to make a confident comparison of which is more out there
Interesting. I don’t know a ton about them beyond the basic stereotypical things: no blood transfusions, no voting or celebrating holidays, a select group leads in Heaven, going door to door prosteletyzing, very insular as you mentioned. Almost all of my somewhat negative opinion is very micro level, being based on…
I was about to make a joke about Yelp getting shows but it occurred to me that they would legitimately be a good fit for a Check Please! style show.
I’m really glad Leah Remini has stuck with this series and not kowtowed to the “Church” of Scientology.
I’m a habitual procrastinator and I very easily forget to do stuff if it’s at all open ended. I did mail-in during the one election when I was at an out of state school and I cut it way closer than I should have because I just kept thinking, “I’ll do that tomorrow,” and then forgetting. Having a specific place to go…
Definitely gotta be Garden State for me because I was a basic ass bitch in high school.
This does seem like good advice but I read it in a comment section so my compass is all over the place right now.
Re: the Red Room door, this is totally personal head canon, but I think they were sorta entranced when they enter and exit. Sorta like just before Steven realizes he’s dreaming and he says he can’t remember what happened after he entered the Red Room or how he reconciled with his wife or how they got pregnant. I think…
I’m halfway through Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I don’t have a lot to say about it yet except that Ms. Wardwell’s whole presence is so fucking funny. She’s constantly dropping these weirdly ominous tidbits into conversations and gliding into rooms like Halloween camp personified and nobody finds it strange at all,…
I finally finished The Haunting of Hill House.
To the person responding that blocking a road/inconveniencing people makes you a POS:
This article led me to a recent Slate interview with Noam Dworman (owner of the comedy cellar). In it, he says:
But can William Forde Thompson see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
Thank god someone else noticed the bike. That shot of it catching fire fucking slayed me
And that fucking bike on the front path. I can suspend my disbelief of how quickly the house was engulfed in flames but the fucking bike spontaneously combusting had me in stitches.
How is there no mention in the Stray observations about the bike going up in flames? That fucking slayed me.
IMO, these past three episodes have really been Supergirl at its best which makes me really excited for the season to come, but also fairly nervous since I think Season 3 started out strong (though not quite this strong) and then completely fell apart.
I didn’t realize realize at was a Jackson work. I’ve passed by the movie version like 5 times in the past 2 weeks while browsing options and figured I’d get around to it eventually EDIT: oops, I fucked up and thought you were saying In the Mouth of Madness was a Jackson book. Somehow I read two of your comments as…
I watched Season 5 and, while I didn’t hate it, I was really underwhelmed by it and this is coming from someone who likes Season 4 quite a bit. Thinking back on it, I really can’t remember much of what happens despite watching it less than 6 months ago. The only plot line that stuck with me at all was Maeby’s.…
Never heard of Hour of the Wolf so I’ll definitely check that out.
