Generally, I don't. Because in the cases of say Allen and Polanski, I don't feel a need really. There's too many amazing movies out there by people who aren't horrible human beings to bother needing to see the work of one specific director just because of whatever praise they get from (mostly white older and male)… » 11/20/14 4:33pm Yesterday 4:33pm

I will be okay with that only if it was revealed the call he got at the end of the first movie that he was supposed to sing backup for John Mayer or whatever was actually a prank by Fat Amy to get back at him and screw up the Treblemakers. She said earlier that she had his number! » 11/20/14 4:25pm Yesterday 4:25pm

I'm in the middle of Bonk by Mary Roach. I've read and loved all her other books (well, I haven't gotten Gulp from the library yet, too long a hold list still) but she's one of my favorite non-fic writers so I'm really enjoying it. Although I do have to hope nobody on the metro is reading over my shoulder since the… » 11/19/14 7:49am Wednesday 7:49am

I kid you not I have spent significant parts of my adult life trying to remember what the hell that show with the dogs was that I watched when I was a kid and having everybody who heard me describe it say "what, you mean Pound Puppies?" No, if it was Pound Puppies I would have said Pound Puppies. » 11/11/14 5:57pm 11/11/14 5:57pm

Yeah, normally I'm a "better safe than sorry" type of person but I would set fire to something if they destroyed my engagement ring without either my permission or dire need, and considering engagement rings aren't tin-foil there's no way there was need for that crap. » 11/09/14 12:25am 11/09/14 12:25am

I work for a think tank that does events about various foreign policy issues. Last month we got a panicked half-captitalized email from somebody in response to an event invite that we need to crack down on getting the travel details of our speakers and making sure they've gotten "the ebola shot." » 10/27/14 6:09pm 10/27/14 6:09pm

At my day job we just refer to that area as "South" Asia and "Southeast" Asia is Indonesia, Bangladesh, etc. but yeah, India and Pakistan are Asian countries. But I cut people some slack since the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan is basically the border of the Middle East and Asia.

No slack for misplacing India… » 10/18/14 1:40am 10/18/14 1:40am

Hola, I'm Mary, I'm an indie filmmaker by night and social media guru/editor by day. I just finished work on a feature documentary about professional gaming. The trailer and info is on the website That's been my baby for the last three years. Before that I actually was an intern and occasional… » 10/15/14 9:49am 10/15/14 9:49am

This is exactly why my very close family and friends are under strict orders to NEVER tell anybody else if something happens to me until it's well over and done with or I personally tell them they can talk about it. Because the rush of people who want to have something to say about this woman being sick seemingly so… » 10/14/14 3:36pm 10/14/14 3:36pm
