On Joan Didion on Woody Allen

@queequeging totally fair, and I didn't mean to single you out.
(I may be biased in favor of Manhattan Murder Mystery because it has Alan Alda in it.)

On Joan Didion on Woody Allen

@stonefruit not even Sleeper, or Manhattan Murder Mystery? I haven't liked the other Woody Allen movies I've seen, but I like those two. Maybe because they're fairly superficial plot-driven movies, without purporting to say too much about people or the world.

On Lana Del Rey's "Once Upon A Dream" Cover

Are those Angelina Jolie's real cheekbones? They are ridiculous (ly awesome)!!!

Google tells me they are not. They're still awesome.

On What I've Learned From Three Years Without Shampoo

@BornSecular I tried no-poo for about a year, with mixed results. The ACV controlled my dandruff, but something I was doing was making my hair break or fall out (maybe the hair routine, maybe stress). So I switched to a sulfate-free, mild shampoo (something from Whole Foods), kept the ACV, but then followed it with conditioner, and I try not to wash my hair more than 2x a week. It's the only thing that's controlled my dandruff - I used to use Nizorall, and it was effective for a while, but stopped working after a few months.

On The Shark Has Pretty Teeth, Dear: Why I Teach Women Self-Defense

@stuffisthings I was about to write this. Knowing I can defend myself would make me feel empowered and strong; not wearing short skirts or not drinking alcohol for fear of rape would just make me feel shitty, even if doing so were effective in preventing rape. Which, I'm pretty sure they're not.

On The Curious Case of Jennifer Weiner

Thanks for posting this! I'm conflicted about Jennifer Weiner, and Jia has pretty much summed up why she makes me uncomfortable.

On "Penis, Penis, PENIS!": The Legend of Nancy Silberkleit

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll you may be able to access the materials filed just by going to the NY state court website. I've accessed briefs filed in the NY Supreme Court in NYC that way.

On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

@Oliver St. John Mollusc "Paul Wesley, who we all know is actually Muppet Angel" I never thought of this but you are so right it hurts.
