This "stop flaunting it" sentiment really gets my big gay goat. Being gay isn't some weird hobby. It's not a penis fetish. (Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan.) It's who I am. My sexuality runs a thread through every part of my being, just as it does for all people both gay and straight.
The writing on this show is brisk and subtle. Plus there are some hilarious actions and reactions from the cast. They enhance the scripts which are already good to begin with. Each episode has at least a couple of laugh out loud moments.
Identify a few things that are wrong with your character and attempt, most likely unsuccessfully, to improve them. You're probably insufficiently grateful or a terrible listener. Maybe you're just a selfish harpy who only ever thinks of herself.
There's no such thing as "offensive" humor. Only a personal reaction to a concept or idea with a kernel of truth which some have made the conscious choice not to accept. Humor, on the other hand, doesn't care. Because humor cannot exist without truth.
Dental hygiene for an alligator seems questionable. He can't floss. He can't even brush his teeth. Where would he get toothpaste? If he crawls into your neighborhood Walgreen's to buy some, it would cause a panic, regardless of his good intentions.
One day, my kids will be reading a Minority Report type of article on how awesome summers were when they were kids. I figured I'd give them a heads up with a real-time account of what life is really like in this decade.
If there's a better form of poetry for the Twitter Age, I don't know it. "Haiku" you say. Yes, fast and obscure fits the bill, but unlike Haiku, the Clerihew shoots off deft sparks because its intentions are overtly comic.
You always hear people say that a coffee shop is a great place to find love. Is it the smell of coffee beans in the air? The soothing sound of Josh Groban's voice in the background? Or maybe the caffeine does more than just keep you glued to episodes of Seinfeld.
It is worth comparing Ochs' life to Robin Williams, since both artists were filled with authenticity, passion, love and idealism for a better society. In theatrical terms, they defined the tenets of catharsis and pathos.
I used to smoke a lot of pot. When I think about how much money I spent on weed, I could easily have bought a car. Not necessarily a Lotus, but definitely a 2003 Toyota Camry. Yet even though I smoked consistently for a decade of my life, I never really reflected on "why?"
The movie insults anyone who has ever written a script that couldn't get made. OK, I'm bitter. Anyone who shares Guild membership in Writer's and Director's Guilds, can we take away people's membership? Take those cards, please!
In the hopes of achieving success and getting things on the right track, let's all agree to say goodbye to the following 10 things. Like American Idol, Grey's Anatomy and Glee, they had their time in the sun, but let's face it, it's over.
This was the year that someone finally found a way to use social media effectively by encouraging people to sacrifice a touch of dignity along with a bit of cash by dumping a bucket of ice cold water over their heads.
I didn't find anything particularly funny despite being a Rogan fan. I like crude. Just last night I saw National Lampoon's Dirty Movie and ashamedly found myself howling. But The Interview's script didn't hit any of my bones.
