Wow. That is ballsy.
I don’t get claiming they ran out of ideas when they clearly decided they really did want to make a King of Queens revival (when previously they kinda wanted to revive King of Queens but didn’t want to be obvious about it). From all I’ve read about this show, they were out of ideas once CBS got past “Let’s put Kevin…
One of the last semesters I was still in academia, a student plagiarized a paper written by the head of our department. And when I called her on it (it was fully more than 1/3 of her essay word for word and I had it printed out right ther), she insisted it was a coincidence and she hadn’t copied anythi.
Cancelling the old show was the only way to get Jerry Stiller to stop shouting story ideas at the writers.
THAT IS HORRIBLE!!!!! I hope your ‘puter issues get resolved soon!
I wish you could send the student a bill for your computer AND your bar tab!
Wow, that actually sounds pretty solid!
If they really wanted to get creative, they could have just killed off *his* character. Then, from purgatory (b/c, well, heaven can wait) he... I dunno, tries to intervene for the better and narrates?
“We literally didn’t have any ideas, so we just killed off the main female character in order to juice up the plot.”
Thanks, story—I hope you’re right. It’s a PC and Homey’s pretty good at keeping it updated and protected, so fingers crossed. And I hate to be this better, but I hope they did get a virus. Harrumph!
I just... it’s like so obvious and I find it so personally insulting. I probably shouldn’t but, like, I’m an English professor! It’s my job to know your writing style and help you improve it—they assume that I’m so stupid that I can’t possibly recognize a jump from 10th grade-level writing to professional…
UGH. FUCKING STUDENTS.
Me? Okay, I don’t embroider (any more . . . I did a bit as a kid) but I think several of them are pretty cool looking.
Lamps. Having lamps I like at a light level I like and that are also attractive. Also, you can get super cute lamps for not much money at IKEA and Target, and second-hand shops usually have a ton.
There’s a temple in Cherry Creek I’m going to check out and I’m seriously considering moving up to Boulder when my lease is up. There’s a really nice Humanistic congregation up there.
Yeah, I can imagine that getting meat in Boulder was hard, but Denver had more options. Even with a university in town I’m not sure there was a good place in Boulder even for halal meat (and I know there was no place in Golden for that where we really needed it with the international student population because top 5…
Wiley is AMAZING. There was a show of his work here at SAM and I bought the companion book. His work is dazzling.
If you’re looking for Jewish stuff, one of the eruvs is West Colfax between Sheridan and Federal. There’s certainly a good community going there that I remember from being a kid in Golden and us going to procure various food stuffs. Sadly Dolly Madison is no more, that was the good dairy distribution store on West…
Spacer for those who’d rather avoid the subject.
