commented on Meet the New Cinderella, Same as the Old Cinderella
"Cinderella, in the cellar,
Didn't have to much as far as I can tell.
Her godmother was two-thirds fairy.
Suddenly her life was a lot less scary,
But what if you haven't got a fairy to fix it?
Sometimes you have to make a little bit of mischief."
--"Naughty" from the musical Matilda by Tim Minchin
Tim sums it all up so nicely, doesn't he?

@1 There's also the fact that we're quick to jump on flaws in movies/literature we can't stand even as we can overlook glaring plot holes in movies we love.
That hypothetical movie I hated? How DARE they use a 1956 Cadillac in a scene OBVIOUSLY set in 1953! Stupid, lazy film-makers. But Indiana Jones apparently holding his breath while he clings to a Nazi U-Boat for days/weeks at a time? Oh come on, it's just a movie!

commented on Is Anyone Else Excited NOT to Watch the Super Bowl Tomorrow?
My local indy coffee shop will actually be closed tomorrow so I don't even have that option for non-Super Bowl activities. I'll probably read, maybe go see a movie...
I'm happy for the fans and the folks who are super into the sport but... meh.
