It’s not on Netflix instant. I’m pretty sure that’s what they’re going for.

Yeah, I thought it was sweet. He’s just trying to relate.
You were seriously adorable.
Seriously? Of course it’s not going to be free for everyone. Of course it’s a for profit organization. How on earth could they get anything done otherwise? Being a non-profit charity is exceedingly difficult. Rich schools should pay for it in order to help poorer schools (ones that don’t get sponsored from the Kickstarter campaign) receive it for less or no cost.
My sister and I went to NYC just two weekends ago, and happened to discover that the 9/11 museum was open to the public. I took a smiling picture by one of the fountains (not really thinking about it, to be honest with you), but the museum itself was pretty staggering. I cried. I was 12 and in Texas when it happened. I am not connected to the events in any way other than they happened in my country of origin when I was alive on planet Earth. I can never possibly hope to understand your devastation, but I see it as a museum much like the Holocaust museum. A memorial for those who lost their lives, a tribute to them (as much as you might not want it), and a way for everyone to remember how much we were shaken that day. Thank you for the article, though. I will admit that I didn’t really think of the families much as I went through it. I thought about the firefighters and policeman and those trapped on the upper floors and in the elevators. I suppose you can’t control how others will see and remember that day, and for that I’m sorry. But I’m not sorry I went.
I personally love music like this when I’m in a certain mood. Another great one for the creep factor is the Lento movement of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 7.
“Pajama” is standard for the U.S, which is interesting in an article about two British icons. Granted, do you really want us Americans attempting British spelling?
Sonic Ocean Water is life in August. Luckily, Abilene has a low humidity index. I can deal with 105 degrees if the humidity is 5%. I would NOT want to live in East Texas, even if it is much easier to grow plants there. I’m pretty sure I would melt into the pavement.
Wow, really? I bet you’re a hit with all the ladies. Put them in their place. Good for you. Ugh.
My husband and I lost our minds watching the finale yesterday. We were screaming at the screen. It was amazing, and it’s so nice that we can watch something together we both enjoy. He’s never been a Whedonite like me, but he loves Marvel, so I’m glad this show pulls both together and became a fascinating, emotional ride just like I always had faith that it would. It’s nice to feel vindicated.
Good grief, how horrifying. Baytown is on the eastern outskirts of Houston. For some reason, I thought that things would be more cosmopolitan closer to a large urban center, but apparently not.
I’m glad we’ve come to understand each other now that I’m an adult, even though we are so different, and it’s much easier for my sister to be close to you. I’m glad we can exercise and become stronger together. You make me better in so many ways. Eshet chayil, Mommy.
So, she’s not a real woman unless she does both? Or are you trying to make her into some kind of hypocrite? What if she likes the feeling of shaved legs, but couldn’t care less about her underarms? Quit trying to fit everyone into a neat little box just so you feel more comfortable.
Good luck to all of them. I hope things go well when the time comes. Thank goodness for modern medicine.
Quit downvoting, people. I was confused for a second as well, being American and out of the Eurovision loop. If we can’t ask these questions, how will we learn and better ourselves?
Woo! I was so afraid that Wikipedia’s map of marriage equality in the US was going to start looking like a map of the Mason-Dixon line. Congrats to Arkansas for ruining it!
Definitely a lot to add to my reading list. I will say, though, that The Windup Girl is fantastic. Took me a bit of effort to get into, but once I did, I could not put it down for the last few hundred pages.
If I (female) laughed about male genitalia with my male best friend, does that count? Like, he made the joke and I laughed and agreed? (And, yes, I realize this is satire, though it is well done. It took me about half the list to realize it.)
Speak for yourself. Were I a mom, I’d want at least half of these.
It would have been cruel if they had left it in the jar, but they obviously weren’t going to. It seemed perfectly content to just stay in there. Seriously, people, if you cry wolf every time you think an animal is the least bit uncomfortable, you’re only hurting your own credibility when it comes to actual abuse.
Extreme fans scare me a little. I’ve never felt this way. I’ve always loved the idea of being friends with actors I enjoy, but I’ve got my person, and even if I didn’t, the idea of dropping everything for someone just because you have a fetishized version of them in your head is upsetting to me. They’re people, just like you. They eat, sleep, crap, and cry. It’s the unattainability, I guess. People like this will never be satisfied with their own lives.
Hrm…I should probably know my husband’s parents’ ages. All I know is that my mother-in-law is a good decade younger than my father-in-law, and they are happy as clams. :)
My mom and I work out together, too. It’s helped us to bond so much.
Here’s a video they made on Nerdfigher basics, if you’re interested, OP (or anyone else).
Just got into the Vlogbrothers about 6 months ago, and I’m 25 as well. You don’t have to be an “adolescent” to enjoy YA fiction, either. Just look at the success of The Hunger Games.
Newborns (0 - 3 months), which is what the babies in these photos are, sleep A LOT. 16 or so hours asleep, 8 or so awake. It’s generally wake up, cry, eat, sleep, wake up, cry, diaper change, eat, sleep, etc. all throughout the day and night.
Act V is a wonderful one. I’ve gone back to it several times.
All excellent choices. I also love episode 396: “#1 Party School”. It’s probably the episode I’ve listened to the most. What’s even better is that they go back to Penn State (the school featured in the episode) two years later after the abuse scandal for episode 451: “Back to Penn State”. Episode 425: “Slow to React” is also one that gets me every time. There are really just too many to list. I could probably go through each year in the archives and point to at least three that I absolutely love.
Hair is surprisingly strong, and I doubt it would hurt that much if it was all twisted together into a “rope”. It’s not like they were being whipped and forced to do it. Quit exaggerating.
Seriously? I don’t know why I seem to be freaking repeating this all over the place. The stories we tell reflect who we are. No story is every “just” a story. They aren’t “just movies” or “just TV shows” or “just books.” They reflect how we think, how we as a society functions, and how we treat each other. Gah.
“Empty orchestra” actually. In that you’re being accompanied by a band that isn’t there.
I’m pretty sure I learned this from the documentary done on Pixar. It’s a really cool fact.
I attempted to read the first book in Wheel of Time and got so bored that I stopped. It’s not for everyone. I tend to prefer standalone stories, though the Harry Potter books are an exception.
Ha, that’s the kind of wife I am. Outwardly encouraging and optimistic while still thinking “Hrm…I don’t know about this” in the back of my head. Awesome.
13/20. I really need to read the lesser-known comedies. It’s difficult to memorize the important lines when you don’t get to see a play performed in front of you, though.
Don’t feel insulted, honey. You’ll feel the same way about the class of 2030 not understanding something you care so deeply about right now. Let us have our nostalgia and freak out about hitting our late-twenties and early-thirties for just a second.
So, at #13, I felt compelled to stop reading and find that song on Spotify to listen to it. Still remembered every single word. No regrets. I remember popping that CD in to my Walkman and listening to it all the way through while lying on my stomach on the floor of my room. Sigh. I think I finally understand my mom’s John Denver nostalgia with perfect clarity.
“By showing great strength and character” - that guy wins.
#11 - I just loved the fact that she showed up randomly in the Husbands web series. I squealed and grabbed my own husband to show him.
I agree. This was amazing. I had to stifle my laughter so my coworkers don’t judge me.
