commented on SL Letter of the Day: Bonus Advice for Too Soon To Quit
Or you could end up like my brother, who fits the description in this email to a tee (except he drinks instead of playing video games). He's been unemployed 5 years, the house is a sty, and they have four children. Just this week, the wife just had to get a restraining order against him for hitting the kids. It's ripping our family apart because he's a sociopathic, self-involved dickwad.
GET OUT NOW.
I completely agree with #9. I've been involved with a depressed person and you don't treat someone you ostensibly love that way. No matter what.
commented on Tom Cruise = Deal Breaker
My favorite movie with him in it is "Magnolia" (which I liked quite a lot, but I get why people didn't).
He's playing such an asshole in that movie...and hey it's completely believable. But he went for it, and the performance is good. It's not even a big part, but he's good in it.
That said, I despise pretty much everything else about him. He's massively creepy and I really hope that the gay rumors aren't true. I don't want him on my team.
commented on Michelle Shocked-gate Update!
In the end she's clearly someone with a tenuous grip on reality. Her all over the map "I'm a lesbian now I'm a Christian" weirdness reminds me of a low-rent Sinead O'Connor (without the unbelievable voice that SO'C has).
Shocked has no one but herself to blame for her meltdown. I don't think she's mentally ill, just someone who doesn't know how to keep her pie hole shut before she insults a good chunk of her audience (I'm talking about you Donna Summer, even though you're dead now!)
I'm self employed and even when I want to slap a client of mine for being idiotic, I shut my mouth and remember who's writing the check. If you can't do that you have no business being a performer OR you have to live with the consequences of what you say and do without whining that you're being picked on for your "beliefs."

Oh for god's sake. TELL HIM WHY!
Christ. Tell him you were assaulted and that is out of bounds. You don't have to go into details, but lay out a general scenario of what happened and THEN gauge his reaction.
If he's a good guy he'll flip and say "oh my god, I'm so sorry that happened to you....let's talk about how we can do this and make it hot for both of us without traumatizing you."
commented on "Lena Dunham Is a Liar"
You're posting this anonymously because you're a coward....and an idiot.
Lena Dunham's real life boyfriend is really sexy (IMHO) and who the hell are you to judge? I've only seen the show a few times but I didn't think the guys they cast to be her sex partners were especially conventionally "hot." (For the record, I don't really care for "Girls.")
Guys (gay and straight) have all sorts of taste in women and men (the men in my father's family seem to like biger women for example).
I'm a 48 year old bear and get more attention now than I did when I was 25 and skinnier....sometimes from men with conventionally smokin' hot bodies. Go figure.
More to the point, it's A FUCKING TV SHOW. Nothing is realistic on TV or in the movies. Or haven't you noticed that there are almost no women between 40 and 70 on TV, but somehow there ARE in real life?
