I'd like some evidence that those humans aren't just extra small.

On The Day The Polar Bear Learned About Snow

It is so endearing that you imagine a world in which polar bears aren't raised in single parent households where the father only comes around to stave off hunger by eating his own offspring.

On Introducing "Oscar-Nominated Songwriter Karen O"

it's an honor for her to be nominated just so we can see what she'll wear to the ceremony. And whether she coordinates her wardrobe with Win Butler and Owen Pallett.

@LaurenBethG if his job was to secretly write letters for other people, then recipients would find out that their precious treasured love note was actually a BeautifulHandwrittenLetter.

On "Her": This Movie Makes No Sense

@barnhouse I mean, I think that the recipients aren't supposed to know. Which is, I guess, a cute set-up to this Vision of Our Future Selves being willing to accept the Exciting New Product of a simulated human as an operating system.

I really liked the movie, though I didn't read it as being particularly coddling to the Theodore character. Like, I appreciated how a lot of it was really creepy (Samantha bordered on HAL9000 with better speech emulation software at times) without being judgmental (I would not, for instance, have been surprised if the last scene ended with them jumping off the roof). It might even work better if you imagine that the story is actually about Samantha becoming sentient as a window into Theodore's romantic/interpersonal problems. I'd guess that their relationship pretty directly mirrored the one that he had with his wife, which was also a pretty neat trick.
