Way back in the day, before binge-watching was a thing, my friends and I sat and watched a marathon of Babylon 5 for nine hours. You see, we were trying to keep our friend who hadn't seen it unspoiled and we were getting a little weary of hiding the fact that Delenn went through her metamorphosis and so we kept going… » 12/12/14 6:36pm 12/12/14 6:36pm

I agree with you wholeheartedly in one sense and those people in my regular life do drive me bonkers, with this particular instance I actually kind of get it because I've been in a very small version of where she is. A couple years back I was working on a project that in some circles was somewhat anticipated (and for… » 12/10/14 12:19pm 12/10/14 12:19pm

I feel sometimes like I must be the only formerly bullied kid that really, really, really doesn't want an apology of any sort from my former bullies. At all. I would rather never speak to them again and pretend they don't exist, but since I'm from a small town, if I bumped into them on the street I would rather they… » 12/10/14 9:58am 12/10/14 9:58am

Yeah, I wonder if there's enough data out there about that because most people I know who can't run because of bad knees, their knees went bad for other reasons. Myself included. I walk at least two miles a day now, but if I even jog across an intersection because the walk sign is counting down, I'll feel it for a… » 12/06/14 6:26pm 12/06/14 6:26pm

I wouldn't suggest The Power of Habit if your SO is even slightly into reading, story structure, or actual good non-fiction writing. My book club read it a few months back and it was really rough to read. There's some scant pieces of good science buried somewhere in there, but whenever the author tries to draw… » 12/05/14 10:30pm 12/05/14 10:30pm

I am eternally grateful that not only did I not have to post this, but that it was the first comment I saw. Seriously folks, even if you've never heard of or watched Babylon 5, it changed EVERYTHING. Not even just the serialized storytelling, but also the current state of fandom and creator interaction? Started with… » 12/05/14 4:49pm 12/05/14 4:49pm

Late replies! I only just got to where I could watch this video so I'm only just seeing it and reading comments.

Anywho, Taylor Swift being a bad dancer is literally the entire point of the video for Shake It Off. She's bad on purpose. Not saying she's necessarily any good when she's trying, but in that video she's… » 12/05/14 2:15pm 12/05/14 2:15pm

I think that's both true and that there are exceptions, but in full disclosure I work for a think tank doing communications and outreach. But I think that among my co-workers, there's a real drive to both provide things that create media coverage AND can lead to larger projects and bigger ideas. However, even among… » 12/01/14 1:26pm 12/01/14 1:26pm

I had a long winded reply to this and then I remembered they wiped out the EU and declared everything other than the movies null and void, so anybody else that's arguing is just stupid, because this film IS what establishes the canon on both questions. And lookit, there's a black stormtrooper. Guess that's settles it.… » 12/01/14 11:56am 12/01/14 11:56am

My husband and I more or less hide from Thanksgiving. Basically any year where everybody gets through that week without a trip to the hospital, somebody losing their job, or being investigated for possible child labor violations (or a combination of those) we consider it a win. » 11/27/14 7:19pm 11/27/14 7:19pm

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 11/20/14 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 11/20/14 4:25pm
