That IS crazy. I wouldn’t say my own, mid 60s (and total hippie) mother has become more conservative, but she has become more paranoid about personal safety, courtesy of Nancy Grace and the like. It’s like she’s become more vulnerable to certain kinds of propaganda.
I always end up overseeing the voting for both homecomings during the year. I don’t know how I lucked out. But I almost don’t have to count votes because the seniors decide before hand who is going to win and spread the word. I would be mad, but they actually just pick the nice kids. Literally that is their… Read more
By its very nature homecoming at any school is a fraud.
I learnt about puberty from Judy Blume and about sex from Jackie Collins like a lot of bookworms. May you write the ultimate bestseller Ms Collins, wherever you are.
Ugh I had to stop watching New Girl after the Jess/Nick breakup. I resented how sudden it was and how everyone just moved on within an episode like it never happened, after dragging out the “will they, won’t they” for so long.
Actually, I’m not sorry. I more fed up with jumping down the throats of every single person who says something that does not align with a very narrow view of how we’re supposed to think/speak/act. Read more
Sorry...are we supposed to hate Matt Damon now? Because I’ve never gotten the love for him, despite enjoying the Bourne films, but since this particular kerfuffle I kind of want to like him now, if only to say STOP JUMPING ON EVERY SINGLE THING EVERY PERSON SAYS WHICH MAY NOT BE PERFECTLY CORRECT ACCORDING TO… Read more
I think that’s more to do with “teenage love” than possession. Teens are dumb and don’t have the emotional maturity to put their feelings of infatuation into context and become obsessed with each other. Always touching and hugging and kissing and sitting on each other’s laps and making out on the subway when I’m… Read more
Nonsense. You don’t know an average atheist is an atheist because it doesn’t come up.
I was astonished that he could spend weeks on vocal training and not learn how to sit ass first in a chair. It’s like he just bent his knees until he was chair-height—Americans don’t insinuate themselves into recumbence! Good grief.
The way Hiddleston sat down at the kitchen table in that clip was SO British.
I still listen to it, sometimes! It brings on SUCH nostalgia, in a positive way.
I can’t really hate on Garden State. In retrospect, it’s obviously a deeply flawed movie, but when I first saw it I was 19, struggling with depression and a college experience that was just as alienating as high school, and it resonated with me. And there’s no question that it dramatically improved my taste in music.
That CD was up there with The OC mix tape CD. So good.
I know that I should be too shocked by the horror of this, but is it bad that, after getting over that, my first thought was, “a dime for a phone call? Damn, Jewel is older than she looks.” Is that bad?
