Hey there's no footnote to go with the asterisk on "whatever founders do all day". I guess I'm going to assume it's "roll around in big piles of money"???
*cough cough* best produced in territory militarily controlled by Israel but not formally annexed or internationally recognized as Israeli territory *cough cough*
certainly hope the Awl offers proper respect to Paul Blart: Mall Cop auteur Stever Carr when he passes on in 2049 or whenever
Not really saying anything that different than Polly here, but: even if you ignore this as a betrayal of you, or if you decide/he convinces you that this doesn't really constitute cheating and it doesn't have anything to do with you, think of what it means about him. It's such a cruel thing to do to these women who are presumably investing a lot of emotional energy in this (unless it's a double-catfish!), and he's doing it to selfishly feed his emotional needs or just to laugh at the poor marks. Would you really want to build a life with someone who does that for fun?
Cathy's not dead! They just ended her strip! They ... they sent her to a comic farm upstate, is what my mom told me.
I'm a bad Baltimorean/museum-goer for not being able to say this for sure, but I'm pretty sure that scene in the Wire was taken in the BMA, Baltimore's (quite good!) (mostly) modern art museum. Which is I suppose another art-on-TV category, when museum sites and the art contained therein become a pre-made backdrop for a shot, rather than a dressed set.
It's probably been 20 years since I saw Slap Shot and I remember none of the (male) homophobic stuff, but the bit where Paul Newman is taunting the goalie about his lesbian wife really stuck with me. The in-movie logic is that the goalie's wife really is a lesbian, who had only days before left the goalie for another woman, and there's a scene either right before or right after that game where Paul Newman is explaining that he wasn't just getting inside the goalie's head (though he obviously was) but that he was also telling the truth; he says (I'm paraphrasing) "She really *is* a lesbian! And she's a lovely person, too." I think I remember the bit so well because I felt like that last aside about how she was nice gave me permission to still like Paul Newman's character.
"You want to have a place that is beautiful but not overbearing on your life, especially if you have multiple homes" hahahahahaha
An ex of mine's father committed suicide, carefully planned, when she and her brother were in her early 20s. Her father was divorced and estranged from their mother and most of his family, and didn't have very much money, and nor did his young-adult children; in his rather detailed note, he told them not to worry about burial expenses, as the army, which he had been in years before, would pay for it. Unfortunately, it turns out they wouldn't, because he had been dishonorably discharged for selling ammunition from the base to Mexican bandits. So she and her brother decided that their father, who wasn't at all religious but was a huge autodidact and was fascinated by science, would be happy to have his body donated for research and education. His side of the family was furious with them! People really care about bodies and stuff, it turns out.
OBJECTION, JONATHAN CHAIT IS 42, HE IS JUST TRYING TO CURRY THE MILLENNIALS' FAVOR
