In an article about women on webcams, I came across this quote about the
'What works in favor of feminism at one end can become a disservice in the
inept hands of the media.' Alan used the example of Charlie's
Angels to make his point more clear: 'For maybe the first time in TV
history, three women (or more if you count the cast changes) carried a hit
show' he argues.
'It employed women in reasonably well paid lead roles and probably
inspired young... more->URLEdit?

I'm looking forward to the new terminator movie for one reason only: I'll
get to use the word Terminatrix. Apart from that, the whole thing looks
pretty bad. I had to drive to Skokie this morning, and as I did I figured
out what the movie would be like if I were king.
First of all, it would be set almost entirely in the future. In T1, the
Machines sent back a terminator class machine to kill John Conner... it
was destroyed, but bits of its circuitry were left be... more->URLEdit?
I was writing friends earlier today, talking about the new Hulk movie, and
thinking aobut my new vocabulary words. I said this:
I would much rather watch _The Pathetical Hulk_, where mild-mannered Bruce
Banner turns into a green-skinned master of elocution, and the Mole Men
all throw down their weapons, shrieking, 'Not Hermes, prolocuter to the
gods, could use persuasions more pathetical!'.
It just occurred to me that I wouldn't mind watching _The Inedible Hulk_,
either. 'One move, Bann... more->URLEdit?

I had an interesting experience... The back of the Clariol box says that I
could call for 'expert advice from your personal color specialist' if I
was considering a dramatic change, and I was, so I did. I chatted with the
nice lady for a while, and learned that Clariol has a red, a blue a purple
and a green now. Sometime I want to try them. Anyway, she recommended one
of Clariol's bleaching products, and this blue/black. Then I found the
X-Treme Effects Bleach, and called ... more->URLEdit?

I don't care how great he was, I don't like him. Anybody who wipes out his
beloved's entire country isn't worth the time of day, in my book.
Oh, and I didn't care much for the play, either. The words were very nice,
and the flow of it all was great, but there wasn't a plot to speak of, and
certainly no point to it all. Like Shakespeare without that spark of
intellectual weight that flares up behind the tradgedies, the mistaken
twins and the set-pieces and battles.
