I love Rilo Kiley! "More Adventurous" is a solid album for any mood. "The Execution of All Things" is darker and "Take Offs and Landings" has more variety (including songs NOT sung by Jenny).
Also, I recommend watching "Ira & Abby" - it has several Rilo Kiley songs and also Chris Messina before he got hot(ter) on The Mindy Project!
Kate from Only You! Yay!!
@HelloTheFuture I've only known him as Rube from Dead Like Me, so it never even occurred to me to think of him that way...
@EM87 Good nomination! I really liked how it was JGL's character who wanted commitment, somehow it made me feel less alone in my previous struggles with wanting to be with someone who didn't want to be with anyone...
@Choire Sicha@facebook This was my favourite movie when I was a kid! I remember watching it with my mom and asking "Why can't she just marry George?" And my mom said "Because he's gay!" My child brain could not understand why two friends couldn't get married and be happy together.
I always cry when I'm having a difficult conversation. I started seeing a counselor for my "communication issues" because the *way* I said something would take away from what I was actually saying. My counselor told me that I should start these conversations with the disclaimer, "I need to talk to you about something, but I will probably start crying. It is involuntary, so please don't let it distract you from what I'm trying to say." My relationships and communication have improved since I started these sessions, but I can tell you that I hate how crying is often seen as a sign of weakness instead of an indication of how much you care.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I am so impressed that you did stand-up! I admire you :)
"If you look at that original post, it has more than 200 comments on it". New posts rarely have more than 10 comments these days :(
@Olivia2.0 That's crazy! Definitely didn't work out for her in the long run. I used to watch Romancing the Stone all the time and mimic the way she ate olives out of the jar...
@Gilgongo The only time I really remember standing up to a teacher was when my high-school Social Studies teacher told us (out of context) that Catholics were cannibals because they consumed the body and blood of Christ. I contradicted him but he wouldn't back down. My parents were not happy about it, but I don't think there was any kind of resolution.
