Also, Whoopi Goldberg? Really? What the hell is “rape-rape” anyway? (She said this on “The View” as though “rape” is one thing, but “rape-rape” is the serious kind of rape. It’s not “like” vs. “like-like”, Whoopi. Either it’s “rape” or it’s not, you horse’s ass.) Also, SCREW YOU Milan...
On Roman Polanski:
Also included on the list are Wim Wenders and John Landis so between Anderson, Wenders, and Landis (fucking LANDIS[!!], director of “Three Amigos” and “Spies Like Us”, two of my very favorite movies EVER), I’ll never see a movie again. Crap. I’m stuck with Bay, Bruckheimer, and the Scotts. Guess I’d better start loving shitty camera tricks and CGI. ...

CJA! ALL THE WAY! yogisarah: Nearly everyone from my high school who I am facebook friends with (and this number has gone down since I decided to unfriend those who are trying to sell me shit, 21th century tupperware-lady style) fits into one—sometimes both!—of these categories: -Is pregnant with her third child -Is a nurse -Is studying to become a nurse
Today's Pandora Station
Hall & Oates as prompted by dinner with Truckey, T-roy, and Drew. Recent songs include “That’s All” by Genesis, “Private Eyes” by Hall & Oates, and right now it’s “Shattered Dreams” by Johnny Hates Jazz. That’s right - Johnny Hates Jazz. I haven’t heard this song since KHTR was my source for all things pop.

whileyouweresleeping: In nine states, it is perfectly acceptable to deny someone of insurance if they’re being beaten up by their partner.* It qualifies as a pre-existing condition. So if you live in Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wyoming or Washington, DC, and if you are being abused by your spouse, you will not be covered....
The ecological disaster that is dolphin safe tuna →
I’ve got the perfect solution! Don’t eat tuna! Especially out of those weird silvery envelopes sold in incongruous places like Target. It stinks to high heaven, goes totally against nature, and it grosses everyone else out anyway. Be Tuna Free! mattlehrer: If you work out the math on this (and you don’t have to, because the environmental justice foundation did) , you find that...
Steve Martin and his banjo map fall tour →
My dear friend Benjamin shared this information with me and I must thank him for being so thoughtful. I must denigrate Mr. Martin, however, for not checking with me first while he plotted his tour dates. His initial Nashville tour date has already passed so that’s out. Then he’s back within driving distance on October 1st, but that’s a Thursday and the day before my birthday...

thegooglymoogly: On close study of the clips, her emotional range can be seen tilting from “slightly bummed” to “kinda okay” — a range often studied in hibernating creatures in the wild. Slumbering bears, for instance, will often terrify hikers who stumble across them into believing they are actually awake when they raise one corner of their mouth and tilt their heads back and forth in a “yeah,...
