If this is an inside joke I don’t get, I’m sorry, but Mr Mandy Moore and Bryan Adams (author and recording artist of ‘Summer of 69’) are not the same person. Mr Moore’s most famous song (Ryan, not Bryan) most famous song is probably Stars Go Blue. Again if this is a joke I missed, I apologize, but I hate to see Bryan Read more

From what I understand, the officer backing up the stairs was keeping the crowd engaged and focused on him and he lead the initial mob away from the Senate chambers so the Senate had more time to evacuate.  Shooting at people in that crowd would have gotten him beaten to death.  It may have only been self preservation Read more

The scouring of the shire is actually in Fellowship, when Galadriel has Frodo look into the water/mirror. He sees the scouring as she’s telling him he is the only one who can prevent it. In the movies time line, it doesn’t actually happen, but it still has the same effect of Frodo realizing that he can’t just give Read more

The horrible thing is that it’s not even just the lay public. I have had nurses and other hospital workers straight up lie to all the screening questions and when I go in to see them, tell me the real story. When I inevitably say, “You know this sounds like COVID, right?” I get an interesting range of responses Read more

There is a flip side to that, however, and it’s that bad/terrible things happen all the time to people who have done nothing to deserve it. Spend some time on a pediatric cancer ward and see what that does to your sense of karmic “justice.”

You don’t have to like it, but that was her character arc for the movie, learning to sacrifice and doing things the right way, no matter how hard it is for her. That was why the movie began the way it did, being stopped from winning because she cheated and forced to acknowledge the reality of the situation, not focus Read more

I don’t think they did utterly ignore it. They brought him back at the end and Diana has a nice conversation with him, which I think was supposed to be her realization that he was a person with agency, not a Steve suit. But the fatigue of the last 2.5 hours had well and truly set it at that point, and they were Read more

In the medical field in the Midwest US, medic is used exclusively to refer to paramedics, the ambulance workers. They are important, no doubt, but they aren’t medical doctors. Physician is the alternate term for a medical doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO).

Sam Johnson is excellent at the vocal analysis and demonstrating warm ups and exercises to try to get the desired sounds if you’re interested. He’s also extremely gentle in his critique, limiting it to how to create sound, not some kind of personal referendum.

I know it’s not”cool” to cite NO’s good food, but the little independent French bakeries in the quarter are worth rooting out. Not the tourist traps, the ones around the corner. We went to a different one every morning for breakfast. So much better than beniets.

You don’t want to know what a nurse would have to do to get fired right now.

A few years ago, we did a chocolate cake with cherry pie baked in with white frosting with cherry pie filling on top and had a Black Forrest Piecaken.  It gets messy, but it was a fun holiday mess.

Who does Oliver think he’s kidding?  We all know his tank top would be 3 pics of Adam Driver in various poses.

Sorry I’m late, but I know this singer was even dedicating this song to soon-to-be-former president trump, so I think it fits.

I have watched Umbrella more than is likely healthy for a person. And you are absolutely right, Allison, it works because he is all in on it. It wouldn’t be Rihanna if it weren’t sexy, and he somehow keeps the sexy and the wink to the joke. I read somewhere that his only regret was not being able to do it in heels.

Hughes didn’t comment on the best part of that Rock clip. As Cage steels himself, noting that his wife WAS the prom queen, Connery’s “Really?” is equal parts bemused/patronizing, really cementing the character.

Or one in particular, who might have reason to be on Tatooine at this time, relating to an unexcuted order.
