@Nukegrrrl Giiirrl, who is your tailor? I'm in Seattle too - a close friend of mine does alterations but I'd like our friendship to not be me asking her to fix my shit all the time, you know?

On A Bold Notion for Baby Showers

@Dunemi Moore@facebook This story reminds me that there is a really good reason that baby showers have traditionally been all female, and that is to talk about the birthing process.

The only baby shower I've been to was super hippy woo woo, and that was a huge part of it. Especially for a first time mother, the prospect of giving birth can be terrifying, and there is something to be said for those female only spaces - there is only so much that men can join in that conversation, though it would be awesome to see a party like that be co-ed.

On Design Critics on Catching Fire: "Do we overlook evil if it’s not dressed up like Fascism?"

@stonefruit I agree that there are definitely design missteps if you want to have an A+++++ we did everything right perfect movie, but I think as a whole these criticisms show a lack of understanding of how design can influence narrative in film. "It should be creepier! AND NOVEL!" isn't an interesting criticism to me. Inception-ed indeed.

Also I have theories on how flatness of certain emotional relationships and underemphasis of design is purposeful - "Remember who the Real Enemy Is / Real Message of the Movie."
