Won't be able to catch up until tomorrow. Too busy with work/school/not having an actual TV anymore.

The pair of 12 year-olds behind me would probably agree. Thanks, cool dad/uncle.

I guarantee some of that annoying golly-gee attitude is going to be dealt with in the Avengers, Gabe. That'll make for some interesting depth to the character that is, otherwise, just a walking/punching propaganda piece. *Pushes up glasses* In the comics, specifically the Ultimates, he is thawed out and they deal with his Boy Scout outlook very well, he also visits his old sweetheart and it is very touching. I wasn't bothered by the last line of the film, in fact I thought it carried a lot of weight and said a lot about his whole "man out of his time" arc. What I thought was awful was going from that line directly into the bombast of the end credit animated sequence. Total tonal shift in a split second.

God, people are weird. This comes from a random person on Facebook about Dunn's death: "I felt the same way :( I'm going to stop liking celebrities...First Heath Ledger, now Dunn...I have a bad track record..." Haha, WHUT?

Too bad Marc Webb had nothing to do with this movie then, huh?

It wasn't that early for me, but only a couple years later I was deeply contemplating my own reason for being. No child should have to go through that. When I was a senior we had an 8th grader hang himself from his bedpost with his belt because of the kids always calling him a faggot and other such niceties. I wrote an editorial for the school paper about my own history with those dark thoughts and asked to speak with the 8th grade class at a meeting they were having to "deal" with the issue and I damn near got sent to counseling. Nothing was published and I did not get to speak to those kids who probably could have used something more than the "Bobby's in heaven now" speech they probably did get.

I was bullied pretty extensively from about 4th grade (the first time I remember being teased about watching cartoons, fucking really?) to about freshman year. I tend to believe a lot of it had to do with the color of my skin...somewhat olive due to my Portuguese heritage. I was seriously the "darkest" person in my entire school and I was made very aware of it everyday by my peers. I've heard just about every racial slur imaginable. The thing about my school was it was K through 12 in one building, so you went to school with the same group of people forever. Its in a small farming community and there were 85 kids in my graduating class. I actually had an ARCH NEMESIS, which looking back on was pretty fucking rad and may one day serve as inspiration to write a novel or screenplay about. Who knows? The worst instance of bullying I endured was when said nemesis and a few of his cronies hit me over the head with a textbook (Yikes!) and the next thing I remember is being yelled at by the middle school principal while laying in a trash can in the girl's restroom. I nearly got suspended for that. Oh, and there was the time some kids just embarrassed me to the point I started crying and the substitute teacher joined in the subsequent laughter. I would later in life slash that guy's tires after a chance encounter where he pulled into the parking space next to mine as I was about to leave and it just became an instinctual reaction to do so. I think the biggest problem I had was that none of my teachers or the administration wanted to hear about it. Our guidance counselor was supposed to be the sympathetic ear but told me not to tattle tale on anyone. There just wasn't any support system for me or the other kids.

concert_addict REQUEST The moment Andy pops into Ron's office behind Rob Lowe. It's so subtle but I nearly choke on my pizza because of the lulz it created.

Is it okay to hate RENT, because I had to mute that portion of The Office.

I never realized Ginuwine was stating he was "hung like a pony," that's honesty that you just need to appreciate from 90s R&B.
