@Vicky I thought she did a good job. In my experience, accents often come and go, depending on the situation, the person, etc. I've got friends from Long Island and friends from North Carolina whose accents are only thick when they've been drinking or they're stressed, or when they say certain things or are around certain people. JL's accent felt authentic to me as opposed to the accents on a show like True Blood, where every single sentence is a long, slow southern drawl.
Is "Nancy Grace" an actual person? This is performance art, right? It has to be! She takes off the wig, washes off the makeup and...it's Laurie Anderson.
Yeah you can kick someone out for being a terrible dog owner. When the responsibility falls on you to take care of the dog, and you don't want to take care of a dog...that's bullshit. I am happily dog free, and if a roommate did that to me ONCE we'd have a serious discussion, twice she'd be out or I'd be out. It's a ridiculously inconsiderate thing to do. Why do irresponsible people should own pets? UGH. Tirade over.
YES, watch Boyhood. Best movie of 2014. Talk about crying.
Margaret Cho. For anything.
Is Vogue copy always so thick with adjectives? This reads like swallowing lumpy oatmeal feels.
"How's this for a hot take?" were words I almost considered typing before I realized doing so would get me banned from the internet forever.
Um. You did type it. And then you posted it.
Just saw it this weekend! It was so good. Now what I say next is actually a compliment: it was kind of campy. In the best way! Like a Pedro Almodovar movie, you know? She did not spare glamour, humor, wit, anything. It was escapist, yes. It was beautiful and moving, too. UGH. I want to see it again! Right now.

"The patriarchy has affected women (specifically trans, queer and women of color) in the most heinous ways, but it’s also made men into emotionless creatures that cringe at the sight of their own frustrations."
Beautifully said and a very important point to make. Gender equality is not just about women. It's about all of us getting to be fully human. I think of my father and how he bottles up everything, the man can hardly even smile. It's fucking sad.
