The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh

I inexplicably watched this movie (read this link!) close to 50 times when I was a kid. Like Backtalk, an struggling basketball team decides to recruit an entire starting lineup of Pisces, result in a winning team. And of course, disco fever ensures. It also stars Dr. J!!! Also it has a pre-fame Debbie Allen, Stockard… » 3/31/15 4:42pm Today 4:42pm

i was thinking of playing an April Fool's Joke on GT

But I'm terrible at pranks. I feel so bad when people get worried. I thought about saying something like "Jon Stewart endorses Jeb Bush" for the presidency or "Jezebel might be closing down" or something. But instead you get this—this terrible confession that I can't play practical jokes, in the same way that I'm bad… » 3/31/15 2:06pm Today 2:06pm

In the 70s, Robby Benson was the It Boy

For at least a few moments, especially if you were a teen girl. I wasn't. I was just some jerky kid but , even I loved Ice Castles. That was the first PG movie I ever saw and it was magical. Lynn Holly Johnson (no relation to that guy from Frankie Goes To Hollywood) was an ice skater who took the world by storm,… » 3/31/15 1:45pm Today 1:45pm

The Reinvention of Normal

Reinvention of Normal: Below the cut, a fun video about off-beat inventor Dominic Wilcox (I love his dad and mom who encourages his creative thinking). Above is a watch sculpture, one of his many inventions (others which can be at his website and in the video). » 3/29/15 3:11pm Sunday 3:11pm

Endless arguing

I am still getting comments on my thread on the blowjob post, mostly rehashing the same arguments that have already been made. Hint to commenters: If a thread has hundreds of comments, chances are you aren't adding anything new. » 3/29/15 1:13pm Sunday 1:13pm

That's it. I'm gonna learn Hungarian

I want to know what this says. Look at the hamburgers. I'm like 1% there. I can say cheers and good morning and it's good grandma. » 3/28/15 10:45pm Saturday 10:45pm

Are you obligated to give a man a blow job?

There is an article about it on the mainpage. What I find amusing, admittedly, is that if you say that no one is obligated to give a blowjob, it creates... (wait for it)... friction. Is it wrong to say that I wouldn't date someone who refuses to reciprocate but anyone in any relationship does have the right to do… » 3/28/15 4:29pm Saturday 4:29pm

Favorite Book passages

A bit flowery, Look Homeward Angel by Thomas Wolfe is a beautifully lyrical book. I read so much about the voyage to self-discovery as a teenager. Not surprising. I think that's when most of us would read these books about the pain and realities of living and the loss connected with personal growth. » 3/27/15 3:53pm Friday 3:53pm

Color Coded: the work of Emily Blincoe

As much as I included here, there are so many more intriguing examples of Blincoe organizing objects on her website, where her pictures provide new ways of looking at everyday objects. I could look at her work forever. The colors and compositions are just beautiful. » 3/27/15 10:02am Friday 10:02am

Wednesday Roundup: Your Psychosocial Lifecycle

Erik Erikson, the great theorist, seemed to embody modernism in psychology with his expansion of psychology to go beyond the unconscious, the childhood and the family triad to embrace society and culture. He promoted the idea that each stage of the lifecycle was characterized central struggles at each stage that need… » 3/26/15 10:45am Thursday 10:45am

Britney Spears' music is better than One direction

If you don't agree, WELL, you're wrong. And well, there is talk amongst certain members of the kinjapoly that Taylor Swift will NEVER BE AS GOOD AS BRITNEY. She is a pale imitation of Britney's glorious gloriousness. Or so those people said. Not me. I like to shake it off (hee hee hee. I'm so current and hip with the… » 3/25/15 8:48pm Wednesday 8:48pm
