@LondonLee It's fantastical for sure, but every show targeted at teenagers is fantastical in some way (those kids on Gossip Girl aren't exactly realistic portraits), and I prefer a fantasy where people are erudite rather than incredibly vain and annoying.
#TeamLogan, all the way. Seriously, Dean was too much beaten down puppy dog and Jess was just annoying, in that way that only 18-year-olds who have read "Howl" forty times can be. Logan was a real jerk in the beginning, but he matured in time and became the perfect partner for Rory. His dad was kind of a dick, though.
I realize that this is a snarky website, and that self-righteous pricks on the internet are annoying, but I'm going to say this anyway: having actually known someone who did cut themselves, this is not really a subject that's all that funny. Lay off.
Fer chrissakes, people, it's not Days of Heaven, it's The New World. The ad is about people exploring frontiers, and that's not what Days of Heaven is about at all. But that's exactly what The New World is about. The ad literally references the pioneers that settled America (well, re-settled, I suppose, they weren't first), which is what the New World depicts. And the movie uses that specific piece of Wagner over and over again.
Absolutely, The Searchers is in there, but The New World is clearly the biggest influence. And not Days of Heaven.
It is Malick, but it\'s not Days of Heaven, the commercial is very obviously inspired by The New World. The music that plays in the background is the prelude from Wagner\'s Das Rheingold, the first opera in the Ring cycle, and also used heavily in The New World.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, you say that now, then when The Awl wins, you'll all be like "Suck on that, Gawker! We rule!"
Fucking baby elephants. They're all assholes you know. Lousy tippers, barely 5% on a good day.
Sorry, meant "publication" not "education" obviously. That was an embarrassing mistake...
Slate was pushing insanely for people to get the H1N1 vaccine, much more than other publications which continually ran articles reporting on the controversy, thus making people believe there actually was one in the medical community.
By contrast, Slate was nonstop in calling the vaccine-critics nutcases and urging people to vaccinate themselves.
I'd go with Slate on public health advice over almost any other education. At least they, you know, use SCIENCE!
