Plano is my home town.  The same place I had a wonderful phone interview for a job, but when I showed up for the in-person interview, was told to my face, “I didn’t realize you were black.  You didn’t sound black on the phone.”  So...yeah.

People like me who are dumb enough to live in New York City.

I’m mostly hate-watching at this point, and the handling of Liam’s arc is a big reason why. An honest and authentic look at Liam’s sense of displacement and search for identity in the Gallagher family would have been welcome, especially since the Gallagher’s themselves basically ignore it. But the show has screwed up Read more

He did first come to my attention playing a Neo-Nazi, so...

Andie MacDowell is an actress of very limited range and her looks benefited her early career tremendously. I HATED her in Four Weddings and a Funeral, she annoyed the hell out of me in Sex, Lies and Videotape, and it seemed so appropriate yet infuriating to me that she was in Greystroke: The Legend of Tarzan but all Read more

I’m forgiving because I stan Russell Hornsby, and since my beloved Grimm ended I’ll take him in virtually anything. But I also think that last season Carl was Noah’s version:  Angry Black Man. This is Janelle’s; more nuanced and more human.

I completely agree. The show is excellent and the central performances, especially Nicola Walker, were sterling. I kept thinking about Series 2 long after it aired on PBS.

Especially not when you consider she beat out Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth, which is absolutely unjustifiable.

I actually have no doubt of that.  Which is kind of scary.

This is sad but true.  I love his playing and in many ways he seems to be a genuinely nice guy.  But he has some odd and unreconstructed beliefs, and he’s way too close to Goran Ivanisevic, who is more than problematic.

The whole “Suffragette” mess was a prime example of that. Meryl is such a a precise amalgamation of her age, race, education and position of privilege, she could have been constructed in a lab.

I love every bit of this article, and every track on this album.  Also, Jean Baylor inspired me to start shaving my head.  She was stunning and challenged conventions just by fiercely rocking that look at a time when it was considerably less acceptable than it is now.

This article is inveterate nonsense, which for this site, is saying a great deal. But it’s Frida Garza, so I’m assuming this is part of the elaborate on-going troll that is her Jez contributions.

Me too. At the risk of being one of those people the poster referred to above, I honestly never found him attractive, although I could intellectually understand why someone else might. But he always came across in interviews and court appearances as arrogant, smarmy and unctuous.  Never got it.

It was “The Deliberate Stranger”, and he was terrific in it.  It’s too bad it gave him a stigma, because I’m sure he took the role to show his range, and he definitely showed it.

He first really attracted notice in Lifeguard, where he played a sexy slacker who is still a So Cal lifeguard at the advanced age of 32. The first thing I ever saw him in was a horror movie called Frogs with Ray Milland, where he was sort of an ecologist hippie warning Milland of the dangers of all that pesticide he Read more

I lived in Overland Park from age 6 to age 11.  I am SO glad I didn’t go to high school there, and I say that as someone who did go to high school in Plano, TX.  That should tell you about Overland Park.  If it doesn’t, reminder that it is the place where this guy was a cop:  https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime Read more
