  • do people really say fuck as often as they do on hbo?

    Depends on the audience. I have drastically curbed cursing in front of my daughter, and at work.  Otherwise, fuckity fuck fuck fuck.  

    When my daughter was very young (like 4) I was taking her somewhere and got stopped by a train.  It was one of those eternal, slow moving trains and no way of getting out and taking an alternate route.  As they say in Christmas Story, I wove a tapestry of curses.   Then this tiny innocent voice came from the back seat 'PApa don't say Fuck it makes me sad". 
    Awwww, bless. Meanwhile mine at that age was in a bottle shop with me and said - in that piercing tone only a four year old can manage - "Mum, you said you weren't going to drink anymore!" (I had said I was going to diet and part of that was no wine.) Yay me for quality parenting...

  • "Entertaining" podcast recommendations

    Oh, and "How Did This Get Made" is the definitive bad movie podcast.

    That used to be my favourite podcast, but the live ones are insufferable and they're nearly all live these days. And the ads are getting ridiculously long.

    I love the live ones.  So your opinion is wrong.   (If you are a howl member the ads don't seem to be there fyi).  
    My opinion is never wrong!
  • Daniel Day Lewis Retiring

    He's one of those weirdly mannered and overwrought actors that I dislike - in the pile with Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman and Calculon. He can go - that old timey ACTING is tiresome to watch.
  • US Politics Thread 2.0

    (maybe if the liberal socalists in Seattle would stop spending money on having a climate change office or an official city poet both of which they really have and fund, they'd have the funding to care for a basic ministerial function like adequately equipping police officers)

    This just in: liberals are to blame for police killings. 
    Also, climate change office, what's that about, amirite?

    I want a Cagney and Lacey style procedural starring Gloria and Winnie.
