Find Me On:
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
Sorry, Superglue. If it makes you feel better, I have been chastised in the form of downvotes although I’m not entirely sure what for. Do these people really love Parenthood or really hate Friday Night Lights?
It’s not Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford). It’s Luke Cafferty (Matt Lauria). I’m okay with you getting characters from Parenthood wrong because that show is the worst and I hate every single character on it (my fiancee doesn’t though so I find myself watching it pretty much every week even though I beg her to watch it when I’m not around) but Friday Night Lights deserves our respect.
You would think that after The Avengers, SHIELD might notice and try to fix their one major fatal flaw: Their base is essentially a weapon of mass destruction for their enemy to use on whatever city they happen to be flying over (usually a densely populated one).
I love concrete evidence like “I had the feeling I was being watched.” Really hard not to believe after that.
What really worries me is that he is going to have to come up with a character more over the top than Beetlejuice for Johnny Depp to play.
I always imagine these tv studio executive board meetings where one of the senior execs stands up to make an impassioned plea that for once they put aside concerns of money in order to back a show that has some semblance of actual storytelling and humanity or maybe promotes important messages rather than one that just appeals to the widest demographic based on some lowest common denominator shtick. Then he is like “Just kidding. My only forms of entertainment are cocaine and hunting other humans for sport. I don’t even know the difference between most of this crap. More cash, please!”
It’s been a couple of months since I last watched this film, but I’m not sure what you are referring to when you talk about the Shyamalan “twist”. It seemed like all of the surprises at the end were things they had been building up to and were really more “reveals” than twists.
I wonder if this is how my brother the electrical engineer has never felt.
Famous for his turtle soup.
What’s even worse is the guy behind them who doesn’t know how to take video in landscape.
I felt that way about pretty much all of the things they did. Cheapskates just by off brands, make their own products, and extend the life of their shampoo by adding water. They don’t just get one thing and wear it out twice as fast by having two people use it. This show should have been called Extreme People Not Understanding How Things Work.
I think proposing to her at a sporting event is one of the few surefire ways to guarantee a “no”.
I like this idea but I’m worried that I’ll get too distracted by the puppies and forget why I’m there. Maybe afterwards though.
Yeah I could send her a finger with the ring on it!
I’m actually planning to propose in a couple of weeks and I’m somewhat at a loss for how to do it. Like I’m not planning to do anything big like skydiving or embarrassingly public like an asshole, but I thought maybe surprising her by taking her out of town for the weekend and maybe doing it at a nice dinner. Thoughts?
That’s a fair point that when asking stupid people what they think, we should expect stupid answers. But to say she is not to blame because we as a society made her famous is maybe letting her off the hook to easily. Farrah has definitely promoted herself and sought to increase her own fame through various means (released a book and sold/”leaked” a sex tape of herself, etc.) As far as I know, none of the other moms from that show have attained the same level of fame she has. She is definitely one of the people trying to legitimize her as a celebrity.
All that being said, regardless of fame, even as just a normal non-celebrity person, there is a certain level of stupidity that is still just too much. I can forgive someone not knowing who Trayvon Martin is. Not everyone follows news and current events, so this, while still painfully oblivious, seems within the reasonable bounds of ignorance. But not knowing what feminism means to the point that you don’t even recognize the word is a little bit too much. It’s like never having heard of Canada. You don’t hear about it every day but it’s big enough and been around long enough to at least come up sometimes through school or media. You would very nearly have to actively try to keep your children from learning about it.
I don’t think the problem is whether or not she is a feminist. The problem seems to be more that she doesn’t even have a vague understanding of what feminism means. Coupled with an earlier gaffe in which she didn’t know who Trayvon Martin was (and thought it might be a lady she had met or heard of) it just shows a complete lack of knowledge mixed with apathy regarding anything that is happening in the world. You could also potentially make an argument that her initial guesses (trayvon was some famous person and feminist means lesbian) illustrate her fixation on fame and sexuality but that may just be me reading into it too much.
I was a little worried that my lunch isn’t very masculine today because it included a raspberry greek yogurt and diet coke with lime, so I added some jalapeno chips to balance things out.
You’re assuming she knows what “input” means. You know what happens when you ASSUME? You make and ASS out of Farrah Abraham.
I think my main problem with it is that she wore that foam finger on her right hand when it was clearly made for a left hand. Also the desperation with which she constantly tries to announce that she is no longer a child but a very sexy adult (because nothing screams adult like constantly screaming you are an adult, especially when you do it by flaunting your sexuality). But mainly the foam finger. It looked like her hand was backwards the entire time!
He did say he wanted to strangle the guy who came up with R-Patz. My suggestion for a new nickname is Rob SocioPatz.
