The great Theatre of Blood anecdote: Coral Browne, who played one of the critics, confessed to Diana Rigg that she found Vincent Price incredibly attractive. So Rigg worked very hard to get them together. And she succeeded. And Coral Browne was pleased. And Rigg was happy. And Vincent Price was pleased. And Rigg was Read more

was really hoping this pandemic would break us out of the current insane trajectory our country and global society was on. all that’s gone. i really see no hope for addressing climate change, no hope in addressing income inequality, no hope in addressing political corruption. it’s done. i feel jaded and hopeless about Read more

He just sounds so mean. Like really? You wouldn’t leave your kid in her care, just because she’s fat?? I fucking hate people like this. They can’t see beyond people’s weight.

They are prosperity Christians. They believe that they are entitled to rule the world.

Evangelicals are a cult. I’m former Southern Baptist, and I can absolutely see it, even in the most “benign” of churches and denominations. More importantly, religious fundamentalism fosters certain mindsets that gets extended into other aspects of life, like: Read more

I think an essential component of the alt-right is The Basic Instinct Defense: “I’d have to be pretty stupid to be caught doing this thing I’m obviously doing and I’m not stupid so you can’t catch me!”

I had seen the initial pic of them rolling the statue in on Friday, but somehow missed this one over the weekend. They are LITERALLY worshipping an idol. I mean, I just can’t. Read more

Nice write up, I particularly appreciate the history, including of the sadly predictable actions of the medical community. I personally find it easy to take a “two things” tact in watching Silence. That ease is a mark of my own privilege and it’s completely understandable someone whose life has been negatively Read more

Please tell me when that was - or was that when only one identity really 'mattered'?

Some of you need to realize that sometimes you can just shut up and respect someone’s opinion, especially if they are much closer to the experience. I might have quibbles with this and I might love Silence to death, but maybe respect a trans person’s views on trans issues and just shut up.

I have a very close trans friend and pretty soon after her coming out we were having a random conversation where she mentioned that she didn’t like movies like Lambs and Psycho — not even that they weren’t good movies, just that she finds a problem with their equation of psychopathy with gender non-conforming Read more

People getting the vapors over guitar smashing is truly baffling, considering how common it was when these old people were younger. What happens to old people that makes them like that? Is it some societal thing, or do their brains change? Help me, I’m over thirty and I want to know before it happens to me.

this is kinda a hilariously British-casted movie, the accents are going to be buckwild.
