I feel like I'm starting to jump on the alcohol sux bandwagon myself. The biggest part of it comes from getting older and listening to my body more, which is pretty clear at this point on hating that shit. I'm fine with sticking to a couple beers, because god knows I'm not going to commit to drinking like eight or… » 3/25/15 2:10pm Wednesday 2:10pm

I went to a wedding where the bride, groom, and her two new stepsons had a thing where they all poured different colored sand into a jar to symbolize the new family they were becoming. Nice gesture and sentiment, but the background where the dad went through an ugly split with their mom to marry the much younger and… » 3/24/15 6:38pm Tuesday 6:38pm

Scott Walker too. Just one of those guys where suits don't ever fit right on them, and they can't even pull off the sleeves rolled up business informal look. The bald spot is what fucking slays me though. Not very Presidential. Use a felt tip maker, rub some dirt on it, I don't know. » 3/23/15 9:32pm Monday 9:32pm

Yeah, if you want to stalk someone who has their commenting history hidden, you have to follow them. The process seems better suited for kinja enemies though, like the literal follow feature where you use it to track someone across the site and jump all over every comment that they make. They'll be having some… » 3/21/15 1:59am 3/21/15 1:59am

I remember reading about that documentary India's Daughter that was in the news recently, and about how one of the quotes was "In our society, we never allow our girls to come out from the house after 6:30 or 7:30 or 8:30 in the evening," and I was like dang, that is a big part of the day right there. » 3/19/15 9:13pm 3/19/15 9:13pm

I'd say the most offensive thing in here is how cheap and easy it is to manipulate the press. A fun little dog and pony show of a tour followed by a Costco muffin sampler really is all it takes to set up a puff piece. If the corrections guys had just stuck all the reporters in an unheated room with no snacks and no… » 3/12/15 3:07pm 3/12/15 3:07pm

I think I came to a pretty lasting conclusion the other day that liquor really is gross poison and I need to watch how I drink it. Maybe a nice slug of booze every now and then is fine, but trying to guzzle enough just so I can get good and fucked up is officially for the birds. My body hates it. » 3/12/15 1:24pm 3/12/15 1:24pm

This thing really blew up. International coverage, top news in every major media market, etc. I'm thinking about all those other racist frats out there, and if they're like "Damn, we did that same chant a few months back, followed by a couple more that were even worse. And we had hella people taking video the whole… » 3/10/15 12:54pm 3/10/15 12:54pm

The cops like fucking around on Facebook and Twitter, and they think of it as "gathering intelligence," but the end result isn't much different from when uncle Floyd and aunt Myrtle get all riled up over some shit they read about online. Texas DPS has a pretty embarrassing history with this. The whole "Poopgate"… » 3/09/15 9:07pm 3/09/15 9:07pm

I was really enthusiastic about watching Ace Ventura: Pet Detective with my nephews a while ago. Jim Carrey's physical genius is still there, but I had completely forgotten about all the awful transphobia built into the plot. Lots of puking and disgust and a big shaming scene where the mtf villain was revealed to be… » 3/06/15 12:44pm 3/06/15 12:44pm

Hicks was confrontational, and he had confronted the victims before over bullshit reasons. One question is whether he went over there that day with murder in his mind, or if it was otherwise pretty much no different from the previous times he'd go bang on the door and hassle people. I'm leaning against him having… » 3/03/15 10:21am 3/03/15 10:21am
