commented on Tom Cruise = Deal Breaker
I don't understand how he keeps getting leading roles and big bucks from blockbusters that inevitably flop because no one wants to sit and stare at him for two hours. It'd be like watching a coworker poop on all our desks and then getting a raise for it. Bewildering.
commented on The Always Ugly Beacon Hill Branch Library
I don't know if "humility" is a vibe libraries should be aiming for as they strain to remain relevant in the 21st century. If anything, this architecture—however distasteful it may be to you—might better convey the type of services they need to promote for today's crowd: access to language support, academic and research help, interactive online tutoring, and services like resume support and job searching for marginalized communities.
commented on What Are the Five Most Hated Companies in America?
I think JC Penney's mistake was beginning to sell themselves as something wildly unique and different without having first overhauled themselves. Kinda like photoshopping a thin version of your photo for a dating profile "cuz you're gonna lose weight in a couple months anyway." However how this made them the MOST hated company is beyond me.

@3 maybe you should leave the comfort of the US to serve a Mormon mission in an impoverished third-world country, or maybe listen to the song in context before getting all harpy.
I love that not only did two brilliant artists take a life event of mine (before I came out and also became atheist) and not only make a show out of it, but pretty much the best show ever.
