August 2, 2013 on This Is Just A Goodbye Post
Not going to watch the video because I really like my job and don't want to lose it by shouting expletives at my desk, but just wanted to point out that CNN(.com) did mention the victim. Except it was a few days earlier, with a headline of "Alleged Victim Breaks Down in Court" or something along those lines. It talked about how two days ago (before the sentencing), the victim went on the stand and, understandably, began to cry as she went over her horrendous experiences. So now, as I've come to expect from the 24 hour need for news, they've completely disregarded the old news and are focusing on the new news, which is that these two young rapists have been sentenced. Then CNN's talking heads spoke about it, probably honestly, and people disagreed. Because, yeah, it's sad that two young guys are going to forever be labeled as something negative, but it's their own fault for doing something extremely terrible. So once the talking heads said these insensitive comments (which at least point out that there are consequences, although the recaps I've seem to point out that they don't highlight the most important aspect: Rape Is Bad), the internet latched onto them. I can't tell you what they've said in the past 72 hours, because the blogs I read and my Facebook friends weren't posting about it. Maybe when they covered the victim's break down in court, the talking heads also said stuff like, "it's incredibly difficult to watch a young girl's life ruined like that." Or something along those lines. At least I hope they did. If anyone has all of CNN DVR'd, that would be really helpful in pointing out the news conglomerate's mistakes.

I originally watched that movie only to get the reference from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, but I sure was glad I saw it.

Pretty OK. Had to work a ten hour day, but was able to go to Toys R Us to look at remote controlled cars and Star Wars toys for upcoming library programs and kill an hour. And then I helped my manager come up with passive aggressive ways to get back at the building manager for harassing her for asking him to do his job. Has anyone heard any good jokes lately?

“If I was on that stage with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of music in that first-class venue and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to place this guitar somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”

I am crossing my fingers and hoping this is just a still of him playing two different characters on the upcoming series of Doctor Who.

So in this Sex and the City prequel, I'm assuming the three will be teens and then Kim Cattrall's character will be the cool stepmom, right?

SPOILER ALERT: Marshall dies (very, very sad) and then Ted marries WillowLily and raises their kids. The last moment of the series turns the camera from the kids to Bob Saget where he says, "I'm not your father."

True story: Warner Bros. is also not releasing the newest Harry Potter DVD/Blu-ray to libraries/rental services until a month after the retail release date. Not that it's that shocking since their goal is to make money, but still a shame. Oh, and Harry Potter isn't the only one. I can't remember the rest of the new releases on the list, but Harry Potter was what the librarians I know were so upset about, what with it being based on a book and all.

October 27, 2011 on Let Me Help: Planned Harry Potter DVD And Blu-Ray Shortage
Uh...there are so many things that I find a bit off here. Nobody knows how to do anything, so when you get a job, they will train you to perform the necessary tasks. You may have to shave off the mustache though. I mean, if I (a white male) had that mustache, I guarantee that I would never be hired for any position. Also, I have a very limited experience with Brooklyn, but based on my few days there and the many people I know who have lived there, roaches are found in every apartment. Isn't that just part of apartment living? "This is my coming out. I'm done feeling bad about myself. I wish I could afford a personal meeting with Suze Orman. She's a lesbian. Maybe she could help me reestablish my financial security." What? There's your problem. You want to pay someone to help you out of this situation. Instead of wasting money on How to Not Waste Your Money lessons, just don't waste your money. Don't buy expensive jeans. Don't buy expensive food. Stop caring about appearing successful. And does the math of women earning 77% of what men make translate over to the jobs JD said she had? And do queer women make 23% less than heterosexual women? I found the study for men, but I found nothing about women. Again, I can't see her being paid 54% of what a straight male of the same level of fame would be paid for the same job (within her field). Then again, I really know nothing about any of this, and I read through the article rather quickly. So don't listen to anything I say. Sorry for wasting your time.

Interesting. This makes me want to rescind my comment I just posted on that post about the Simpsons being canceled. Instead, I propose a short season that has episodes written and animated by different animators/animation teams of other well-known cartoons. Oakley and Weinstein should be brought back on at least one episode, and I hope they animate it in the style of Mission Hill.
