Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Cheddar is the best broadly available cheese in the U.S. for use on stuff and in sandwiches. If the goal is to eat cheese, there are far better cheeses. Cheddar, in the giant generic blocks of the grocery store brand, is merely adequate-good. When done very well, I think it can be as excellent as a...

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

Finally watched The Last Jedi over the weekend. Kinda wish I hadn't. Happened to us last night. It was bound to happen at some point. Good lord, I have a hard time believing that throwing a dart at a random assortment of fanfiction and using that for the script wouldn't have had a better result.

Re: Good Cover Versions

You’re getting into some definitional issues here. The band Indigo Girls is 2 women. Do they use additional musicians on stage and during recording? Are some of them male? Yes, but the band itself is Emily & Amy. How meaningful is it to say you’re an all female band when there’s a rotating cast of ...

Re: Good Cover Versions

I'd be curious if there was a greater representation of females in things like symphonies and such. I know of many women who grew up taking lessons on various classical instruments like piano, ciello, violin, and so on. I know very few who took guitar or drum lessons. It's been a couple of three de...

One finding is almost no cool job or amount of money could save you from the trash heap if you were 5’5” or under. Like they had the plague. Yep. I've read several studies that all confirmed that.

I'm dancing embarrassingly bad, even worse than real life, which is saying something. Suddenly I realize the m...
