While I don't disagree with saying her advice in this case stinks* I think it's worth saying that Emily Yoffe herself isn't the person who animates or chooses the animation for her videos, she has nothing to do with it. That would be a producer or editor, and I remember this instance. As soon as Yoffe saw what had… » 8/28/14 3:09pm Thursday 3:09pm

I'm glad this is the top comment. I really think the advice "treat the people you meet as real human beings and make new friends, be open to listening to other people's lives and learning about people who aren't like you" is much more apt. Then you make friends from all kinds of groups without trying. And you learn… » 8/27/14 12:56pm Wednesday 12:56pm

My husband and I were watching the original Superman the other night, and he said "Superman's real super power is acting." Because he makes it completely clear in this movie how DIFFERENT Clark Kent and Superman are, which is why nobody starts to connect the two, why would they? They're nothing alike. » 8/27/14 9:47am Wednesday 9:47am

Yeah, I mean JMS is really good at what he does but that story was what it was because it was on TV. I'm a huge fan, it's probably one of my favorite shows of all time, one of my favorite stories of all time, but I don't think a feature film reboot is really all that wise. I don't see what it could add. » 8/10/14 11:49am 8/10/14 11:49am

I love Kim Possible more than probably somebody of my age should admit to. But I'm also a rare geek in that when I love something I usually don't want there to be more of it than there already is. So I don't want new episodes, it ended perfectly. I don't want more movies or anything, and I definitely think there is… » 8/08/14 8:51pm 8/08/14 8:51pm

If there were no women in the TMNT canon then I might say they should have had something, but as a girl who was absolutely crazy obsessed with the first movie when I was a youngin' I can say that April was amazing, and that was enough for me without shoehorning some dumbass attempt into it later. When I was a kid I… » 8/08/14 11:38pm 8/08/14 11:38pm

UGH, I would have been so angry about that too. Last time I bought a car, I was luckily buying from a friend of mine. But I still test drove a lot of different options, and there was a guy I ended up running into that I USED TO WORK WITH, and he straight up lied to me multiple times about why the car I was thinking… » 8/03/14 2:12pm 8/03/14 2:12pm

As someone in a marriage where we cook our own meals, it's really damn easy to be with somebody who has completely different tastes in food from what you do. We both have our reasons for eating the way we do (most of them medical) and in the end, it's not my place to try to change his tastes or habits because it's… » 8/02/14 2:43pm 8/02/14 2:43pm

The thing I liked about Enchanted was that it really showed a story where the two couples just weren't actually a good fit with their former SO's and they were better suited the other way, and both our hero and heroine weren't jumping ship immediately when they saw/found somebody new or anything either. I just… » 7/26/14 6:15pm 7/26/14 6:15pm

I decided the right fix would be that she was accessing her brain power in a new way/creating new pathways/new combinations of something or other. I'm sure twenty minutes with a neuroscientist and I could polish that right up into something not full of crap. But yeah, it seems from the trailers like they wanted some… » 7/26/14 2:39pm 7/26/14 2:39pm

I'm going to go for my semi-regular rant here: please, if this angers you, put your money where your mouth is. Go to Kickstarter and IndieGoGo and look around the internet for film projects being produced/directed/shot by women and GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY. Straight up give them dollars. It can be just the $12 you… » 7/25/14 11:45am 7/25/14 11:45am

I collect E.T. memorabilia. Which I know will make some people run screaming for the hills. This is actually only a small part of my whole collection but I don't have a good picture of all of it. The really depressing thing though is that the best part of my collection, the signed card on the lower right, has gone… » 7/17/14 10:25pm 7/17/14 10:25pm
