commented on Breaking News: Pretty Woman Does Something Besides Look Good!
Being in front of the camera brings too much attention to the family; she chose to direct so that she can be a better caregiver to her children, and also to not draw attention away from her husband's career. She is also very supportive of underlings and was surprised how competitive the field of directing was.

Oh god, that looks tedious. There are so many parts of New York I love but this...
Not that I'd be invited in the first place, but I can think of a million other things to do than hang out with a group of people who would all want to hang out with a group of people at an invitation only water tower speakeasy in Chelsea.

I know this is weird, but does Janelle Monae, in that video, remind anyone else of Kate Bush? Something about the expressions and jerky but poised movements. Think "Babooshka"...
commented on Your Dog Sucks
@26 "In most other (civilized) places, people recognize that human beings domesticated dogs, that dogs are good for us, and that with a few sensible rules we can all live together very successfully."
'Only in America"? What? What 'civilized' places are you talking about? What do they do there, serve dogs at the table with a napkin stuffed in their collar? In most parts of the world that dog would have been kicked hard. What do they do in Sweden (that's what I imagine you mean by civilized).
So as long as dog owners follow "a few sensible rules" we can all live together. What happens when they don't? (which is the case, in general, because everyone thinks their dog is so awesome)
Oh, and what should Dan have sensibly done for this poor dog, let him have a bite of his salad? Given it a massage? Or gone and found the owner, and adopted the dog if he couldn't be found?
