  2. California Culture: Circa 2000

    Yeah, understood. Different strokes and all that. For me, it's that combination of Armie's Ken Doll looks, his sexy golden voice, his exotic upbringing in the Caribbean, and the fact that he should be douchy like his Winklevoss characters but he comes off as a pretty nice guy. I remember being super-bummed that he didn't do Finnick in the Hunger Games. And it's cool that he basically turned down his family fortune to do what he wanted to do. Anyway, I found this video about cheap eats at various places in Los Angeles: That's pretty cool that they sell off their old pizza at a dollar a slice. Looked pretty solid. (And I like cold pizza, so yeah.) I wish Blue still posted. He would have liked getting some tips about cheap places to grab some decent grub on the cheap.
  3. Can Mark Hamill be my crazy uncle who takes me on crazy fun adventures every once in awhile? Dude is hysterical.

  4. California Culture: Circa 2000

    Also like...this does nothing for you? Nothing at all? He's a California boy, although he did spent some time in the Caribbean. Anyway...found this really cool shot of Los Angeles: It'll be interesting to see what this skyline might look like in another 20 years, given that there's a push for skyscrapers.

  7. Faces for Mark's Stories

    Actual Lord Voldemort then?
  8. Billy Eichner with Joel McHale. If ever a photo summed up the general aesthetic of this decade...

      I'm not sure who either of them are...

      Timothy M.

      Oh good, me neither. But yeah, they're nice looking if you like beards. I'm not always a fan, but some guys are definitely better looking with than without.

  9. It's not even really the gay thing. The Beckers are the consummate social climbers. (My guess is that Dad was a rising lawyer who convinced a rich girl's daddy to let them marry despite the fact that he came from some humdrum middle class family, and thus a true power couple was born.) I can't see them being okay with Kevin and his trashy roots even if he's pretty determined to do better because the Beckers are supposed to go up, not down. (So what if it makes the dad look completely hypocritical given that he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, either.) But yeah, you get hints here and there about what a shitty situation Kevin came from, but I like that we didn't see that in full color until here, because it does change how we view Kevin. And it makes so much sense why Kevin got all in once they DTRed- his dad was the one person he knew loved him unconditionally, and somewhere deep down he really wants someone to fill that void. That's why Kevin got intense, and why he's finding it increasingly hard to pretend that this kid isn't the love of his life.
  10. I really liked seeing Becker in Kevin's world. I also felt really bad for Kevin when he was detailing his fantasy about being accepted by Becker's parents. Yeah, not gonna happen.
  11. Black Widow (Story Discussion)

    JJ watching the Nebelhorn Competition and wondering "what if" was nice, and it kind of showed how much he had moved on. Look, I'm not going to pretend I was thrilled with that decision, because myself and Daisy put A LOT of work into writing out a believable career timeline for JJ that would have spanned at least up to the 2005 -2006 season. We however did not account for Mark deciding it was time for JJ to tear his ACL and thus lose his chance to prove his mettle at the '03 Worlds. Oh, well. I did kind of wish we could have seen how JJ would have fit into the Evan Lysacek/Johnny Weir rivalry of the 2000's, but whatever. Mark's reasoning for it- that having to write in a skating storyline and therefore having to account for JJ either being gone for a competition or characters following him there, as well as the relationship/storyline restrictions it put on him, made a lot of sense. And honestly, JJ never seemed to have that much passion for the sport. Especially towards the end of his career- he seemed very technical about skating and he loved that he was great at it and the rush of audience adulation, but he didn't seem to love the sport itself. It didn't feel like his "soul", for lack of a better word. It was something he did because he loved that he was good at something that his brothers were not, and because he got attention from the world about how good he was, but it's not like how football is to Zach. And it's also interesting to see that JJ's no longer willing to be the chaste Disney Princess skating (and his relationship with Alex) wanted him to be.

  13. Sophomore Year - Chapter 6

    Man, I felt bad for Kevin. I live with a dysfunctional gambler mother, so I know what it's like to get used, although she's not quite that bad. (She does give back when she can.) I get the envy that Kevin has over Becker's life (and the joking about it) and also not really wanting people to see where you come from because it's "less than" of your friends. The fact that he did it anyway because it was important that Becker know what made him him was pretty sweet. And I'm starting to wonder if Phillip is chafing under being the designated heir. (I'm kind of seeing them as being like a Republican version of the Bidens, where Beau was the heir. Poor Beau.) His choice of a marriage partner doesn't seem exactly acceptable- is she poor? Getting married at 22/23 doesn't seem like that big of a deal, especially for conversative families. I would figure they would be thrilled if Lindsay came from the "right' family. We also get another reference to how much Phillip and Adam are supposed to look like each other. I thought that was kind of interesting- like Adam just can't see himself having the good looks and glow of his older brother because he's the spare and not the heir.

    Okay, this is adorable.

      It’s sometimes a painfully slow evolution — but I believe times are getting better.

  15. Super Bowl 52: Who do you want to win?

    I was going to take a Septa Train from Delaware in, but those passes all sold out in like a day. Oh, well. Watched from Chelsea Tavern in Wilmington and had a good time.
