Mar 31 Mike Friedman commented on Lynn Shelton's New Project Is Set in Seattle. She Can't Shoot It Here..
She can't? or won't. It's really won't. Because somehow entertainment is supposed to be publicly subsidized. This has gotten massively out of hand.

In Louisiana we have an open ended commitment to subsidizing all manner of "entertainment" (TOTALLY sorry we sunk $30M of public money into "The Green Lantern." Really, I'm SO sorry.)

I'm sure Lynn Shelton is a nice woman (I thought Hump Day was overrated, but my really husband hated it) but the economics of a project need to pencil out without gobs of public money.

@7 She polices his phone calls and snoops constantly. Who can endure that level of scrutiny? It's batshit crazy behavior. You cannot know every thing your spouse thinks/wants/fantasizes about. You shouldn't want to know that. It's a level of crazy that I can't possibly imagine enduring (but did 15 years ago and it made me turn into an insane person too).

She claims she likes not having to work full time, but maybe she has way to much time on her hands. GET A JOB, LW. Then you won't have time to obsess about every person your husband calls and talks to on the phone.

In other words, GROW UP and behave like an adult, not some 16 year old girl.
Feb 20 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Come On, Snoopy.
This is the sort of letter that makes me glad that a) I'm a raving faggot and b) that I made it clear to my husband when we first me that monogamy was off the table and if he wanted that, he should move along.

Nine years later, we're very happy people. I fuck around less often than I would like but often enough to keep me happy.

The LW sounds like a crazy person. If my husband policed my fucking phone calls I would leave in a second. But he's not crazy and it would never occur to him to do so. In fact, I can hold up my phone and say "look at the hot guy who just hit on me on Growlr." And he laughs and says "yeah, he's hot" and he smiles and goes back to Tekken 6.
Feb 9 Mike Friedman commented on Seattle Police Officer Ranted on Twitter About Race, Obama, and Gay People.
You're allowed to say whatever you want, IN PRIVATE. Make your Facebook PRIVATE so they whole world can't see it.

When I was looking for a job recently (after being self employed for 9 years) I made Facebook private and deleted my Twitter feed (which I used for my former self-employed job). There we go. All nice and private. So only people I know can see what I write on Facebook.

And that is called "common sense."
Feb 1 Mike Friedman commented on First Impressions of Seattle by Someone from Vienna.
You all need to chill and realize that this is supposed to be funny and it is.

Most American cakes are truly awful, awful things because they're made using shitty ingredients, like crisco and margarine, and taste like nothing.

If someone asks me what kind of cake I want for my birthday, the answer is obvious. Pie.
Jan 19 Mike Friedman commented on SL Letter of the Day: Worst. Sex. Ever..
Trust me, in about a year you're going to be dining out on this story.

It happened in 1998 and I STILL tell the one about my Worst Lay Ever with The Egg Man. :-) At the time it involved trekking home a fairly long distance without a car in the tail end of a blizzard....and stepping in a huge puddle of icy water. I was SO mad. But 17 years later, it's HILARIOUS, trust me. :-)

Whoa. You wonder why your wife fucked someone else? Honey, you're crazy. That's why she did it.

Grow the fuck up and stop being a pig. At the very least think about your kid. What kind of example are you setting for him/her?

BE A FUCKING ADULT.
Dec 6, 2014 Mike Friedman commented on Drunk of the Week.
The weirdest place I fell asleep was on the edge of a Roman amphitheater in Tarragona, Spain in 1987. I had gotten on the wrong train in Barcelona and instead of heading north for the French border, the train was headed south.

I panicked, and got off as soon as I could. Headed back toward Barcelona but the last train was heading only as far as Tarragona. So I was stuck.

With no money, late at night and before ATMs were widespread in Spain, I found the amphitheater near the train station. It seemed quiet and out of the way, but turned out to be really spooky. I woke up a few hours later, freaked out and ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the small station. It was miserable and really strange. I was 23 at the time.
Nov 28, 2014 Mike Friedman commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Care Package.
I'd say run screaming from someone who can't use her words to tell you that you got her pregnant.

What kind of crazy person does that?

Also, no care package. She doesn't want to see you again. The reason is sort of immaterial, but you did something awful that she won't tell you about and that's an enormous red flag.

Some places it is voluntary. I asked a checker in Whole Foods what she was doing for Thanksgiving, and she said she was working. I made "oh that sucks" noises, and she said "no, I volunteered! We get double time!"

And this is in New Orleans.
