On Nickelodeon's Diversity "Problem" Is That It Likes Diversity

I'm also pissed that he said Clarissa Explains it All didn't matter and wasn't a huge hit? Clarissa mattered A LOT!

Also speaking of John Cho standing around and looking attractive, is Selfie worth watching? Maybe in the next Star Trek, they can lock Kirk in a storage closet, and Sulu can become the Captain?

On Faux Feminism in Trademark Tweeds

This is the second amazing essay I've read by Meredith Graves in the last month. And I'm so happy this one is on the Hairpin!

On I'm Never Cooking Again (Not That I Ever Cooked Much to Begin With, So There's Been Very Little Change)

I've never done an official cost benefit analysis, but it really seems to me like groceries in New York are so expensive that it's often cheaper to eat pizza/deli sandwiches/fast food than to buy meat and produce and cook (healthier yes, cheaper not so much.) And I'm not talking about artisan cheese made by nuns in Belgium or beef from grass-fed, Montessori-educated cattle, I just shop at my local grocery store in my gentrifying but still working class neighborhood and it's expensive. Like I'm sure if I bought all the ingredients for a cheeseburger or just bought a cheeseburger at the bar down the street, the bar burger would be cheaper.

On What’s the Color of Your Existential Abyss?

When was the last time you danced? 7) In your apartment, in your underwear. You looked just like Beyonce.

On The Hairpin Rom Com Club: She's All That

I get this movie confused with Not Another Teen Movie and I forget which scenes are from the real one and which ones are from the parody.
