Slow Bingeing on OINTB Season 2

Featured

So I sit here on a warm Friday night, warming my gullet with some Skinny shit vodka and diet coke It’s cucumber flavored vodka too. It smells a bit like a brand new purse and tastes like licking leather, which isn’t quite the same as toilet hooch (I’m guessing) but it’s enough to put me in that Orange Is The New Black zone. But I don’t want to binge on this, largely because I have work in the morning, but also because I swallowed the first season in one night and ended up forgetting half of it. I’ll be responding to this season in dribs and drabs over the weekend, decompressing slightly after each episode, as this leather liquor swirls in my gullet and the weekend passes. Continue reading

A Quick Survey

The cats are here to draw your attention.

The cats are here to draw your attention.

Greetings!  During this intermission in posts, I am asking my readers for a favor.  I have set up a survey to explore some hypotheses I have around the word “feels,” used as a count-noun.  You don’t have to know what that means. You don’t have to know what anything means.  But you do, if you have a minute, have to complete the survey.  Or, bad things will happen.

Here is the survey.  https://www.quicksurveys.com/s/p9CJb35

It goes fast.  It’s only 10 questions.  You’re welcome to go into as much or as little detail as you would like. This is an informal academic type thing, so it doesn’t need to have all that scientificalness.

Thank you so much!

Normcore is not a thing.

Not quite the 90s, but close enough. Via RuthlessReviews

Up until about a day ago, Normcore was only a whisper in the dark.  Sometime in October, a group of art people made some kind of mention of Normcore being the accessible appeal of the generic smiley face.  Now, NYMag has decided to call this non-thing a thing, the internet’s eating it up like cat-picture pudding, and I smell bull dookie.  I don’t think normcore is a thing, and here’s why.

Jason Brown being the embodiment of happiness

In case you’ve been encased in jello for the last two weeks, the Olympics have been on, pre-empting all of your regularly scheduled Thursday night programming and generally causing you to either avoid television or watch it obsessively.  I voted for the latter because I’m a sucker for anyone who rides on quarter-inch-thick metal on the icy surface of a rink that may have piranha and kraken living beneath it (it’s a frozen pond in Russia, you can’t prove me wrong).

What Happened on TV Sunday Night? Dexter, Newsroom, Breaking Bad, and Crotch Rot

I’m doing my best to come back from a post-amazing hiatus.  To do that, I spent a lot of time watching TV last night.  And then I watched more today.  Don’t ask me how I kept my five year old niece out of the room while I watched Dexter.  It wasn’t pretty.  Either way, four things were on television last night, and I intend to run them down for you in a rapid and haphazard fashion consistent with someone who is still dodging a five-year-old looking to play spaceship with my laptop’s new hard drive.  Here is what I watched from Sunday night in order of best to worst.
