Dec 6 Prettybetsy commented on The Lonesome West.
@4 The dialogue and the Norwegian scenes early on are really awful. I don't know if the dialogue gets better as it goes along or if the plot just takes over and eliminates most of the dialogue so it's not so embarrassing. I'll have to watch it again.

The Homesman is interesting: it gets off to an embarrassingly flawed start, but the longer it goes on, the deeper and stranger it gets. By the end, it's definitely brilliant.
Nov 18 Prettybetsy commented on What Do You Think of Jonathan Franzen?.
I loved The Corrections because it really nails the way the old Midwestern middle-class piety morphed in the late 20th century into a new Puritanism of wealth and tasteful consumption, and ultimately it treated at least its main character humanely. But yeah, Franzen really needs to shut up about serious literature (by which he means himself) and cut the sneering. He is to some extent what he skewers.

I have no idea if they should say it, but living together and moving across the country together after just a year makes me feel all kinds of jumpy. If they were the types to say it I'd feel a lot better about condoning all that.
Nov 13 Prettybetsy commented on Vote for the Best Worst Tattoo!.
Tough, tough choice from Zophar, Drink, and Hick Life. Zophar is stupid and hideous, but not that distinct unless you look up close. Drink comes from a venerably stupid category of body art, t-shirts, and bumper stickers: the unknown Asian character. But Hick Life is just the whole package: huge, obviously visible, badly done, with content that marks its wearer as scum. Help Trish's son, everybody!

The good news: I'm getting a tattoo removed right now (I, too, didn't know about tramp stamps and thought nobody but intimates would ever see it, then... low-rise pants, ah ha ha ha haaaaa!) and it's not all that painful, it's working faster than expected, and it's so worth it to get my skin back. You can get some good deals out there. Don't resign yourself to shitty ink.

I've made it this far without ever hearing anything recorded by Marilyn Manson and I'm not about to start now.

I really want to know what happened to these two. Where are you, OP?

She's from upstate New York. That explains so much.
