@thisisunclear Don't forget the pig's bladder aka the pioneer's version of a balloon!
@emilies Do you mean when they (SPOILER) thought Jack died or when he really died?? Because when he didn't really die and then they see him again I cry buckets and I'm like PUT YOUR DAMN DOG IN YOUR WAGON NEXT TIME.
Has anyone ever taken an improv class before? Did you get anything out of it? I went to a free one the other day and have now signed up for a 7 week course even though the idea of it makes me want to pee myself a little bit. It was fun but exhausting fun because I was so nervous the whole time!
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose
Mos def. I mean, this could possibly be 100% Excited Golden Retriever and very innocent, but if you feel something is a bit off, I'd probably still go ahead with the date but be on your guard and make sure it's in a public place, etc.
@dracula's ghost "...we are commenting angrily about vegenaise on a feminist website" lololol TRUTH.
@BScottie The Idler Wheel also hit me right in the feels fo sho.
"Regret" gives me the chills. I think the saddest lyric of that song is, "'Member I when I was so sick and you didn't believe me?" I mean seriously. You have been writing about horrible men for over 10 years now (though she certainly has made a case for herself as well)! Find a new, emotionally healthy man for the love of God. Someone a step up from a filler like "Jonathan" even! A part of me really wants Fiona to have a breakthrough and abandon the angst and write clever and beautiful songs about happiness and lightness and at least occasionally ending up on the other side of sadness and struggle. I want her to come up with her own brand of chai tea or something and live on a farm with a bunch of horses but I don't know if that'll ever be the case.
I LOVED THIS. You two expressed so much of the complexity (and undying love) I feel for Fiona but am completely unable to articulate.
I remember listening to her on my discman on my walk to high school school around 2002. I was in elementary school when Tidal and When the Pawn came out but I think her particular breed of beautiful sadness and angst will forever find an audience in beautifully sad and angsty teenage girls.
Sidenote- after watching the video for "Hot Knife" I saw that PTA is now married to Maya Rudolph! For some reason that makes me so very happy.
@adorable-eggplant I can't handle this! SO CUTE! As is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgEOSSwEsPE
@adorable-eggplant Brilliant! In the same vein, if only I could make a career out of watching adorable Asian baby videos on youtube (creepy?)
