I have lived in NC my whole life every way down 64/40, which if you know NC, means 9+ hours of driving and a range of demographics. I know there are Confederate flags and statues. I also know that gerrymandering, red-lining, and voting restrictions are a blatant ploy to keep ‘people’ in their place, and keep them from…
Y’all. I’m tired.
This is some centering shit. Also, “didn’t speak Paris”? If it’s so hard being blonde, maybe don’t give us ammo to feed the airheaded stereotype.
Did y’all see this? Julianne Escobedo Shepherd has just been named the new EIC at Jezebel. Koa Beck, whose last day is Sept. 28, is leaving after less than a year on the job.
The JezSpin isn’t something I like much, because it feels based in gender stereotypes. Girls don’t like football! Guys (straight bros) don’t like fashion! Let’s do a switch!
I’m usually living on kind of a shoestring so I haven’t had much of a budget for travel in recent years. But in October I’m getting a free (well, free for me) trip to Seattle and in December I’m going to Malaga, Spain for a week for the cost of a plane ticket. I’ve never been to Seattle or Spain. I’m SO EXCITED to get…
I came across this the other day and it summed Rich up pretty well. I would add an asterisk for his misogynoir, (which isn’t really addressed), but in all it’s a good read.
The heady days of summer are over, we’ve got a long stretch until the next Federally-mandated long weekend, and it’s the end of a short workweek. Why not reminisce?
I wasn’t a big fan of most of his movies, but I will always cherish his underplayed performance in Boogie Nights, and how perfect his casting was.
Third Tracy was really out of her element when discussing Lily Allen’s struggles and visits with sex workers. She seemed really affronted that Allen didn’t make some pro-sex work PSA while talking about her divorce and mental health issues, and actually called it “fucking amazing” just because it’s a woman seeing…
It’s a long story, but I was staring at a giant inflatable chicken with one wing the other day, and I had Stevie Nicks’ Edge of Seventeen going through my mind.
I would, especially if it was Dr. Pepper. They probably called Harry Burnett Reese a monster when he spliced peanut butter with chocolate, as well. Visionaries and geniuses are seldom appreciated in their own time.
I haven’t seen the film, but while it was widely praised, it seems to me the only “new and different” aspect of Crazy Rich Asians was its willingness to cast an entire movie with characters of Asian descent, which in 2018 shouldn’t be as groundbreaking as it apparently is.
My local yokel news station tagged this under heartwarming, and yes I’m happy that the baby is in a safe place. But the whole situation is sad. What about the birth mother?Was she offered treatment and counseling? Does she have access to safe housing and healthcare? What would have happened if she was a WOC?
I meant to do something like this earlier today but what do you know? I actually spent a crazy amount of time in nature being grossed out by bugs and sweat.
*smirky eye roll* But Canada can’t keep him satisfied like the U.S. can. *crosses our legs and massages his inner thighs, enriches him with “Speed” and the “Matrix” franchise*
