Crispin Glover's "Ben"

When Good Intentions...

... go SO, SO, FAR WRONG.

Intended to help toddlers become more "comfortable" with potty training, but, um- EW. I, for one, have no interest in my child anthropomorphizing his bodily functions ("NO, Mommy- Don't flush Mr. Poo!"), nor do I really want to send him to bed cuddling a piece of shit. I think we'll stick with cheering after he makes his deposits. It works just fine and I don't have to buy anything.

A History Prof's Plea to his Undergrads

Not a compliment to our (mine and Josh's) alma mater. I bring it up only because it reminded me of this schooling.

Sort of Goes With Otis's Post

Is it me, or is David Edelstein the best writer in the film critic business?

Check out his blog, at New York Magazine, and today's blog post where he looks at the new Twilight movie and does some comparing with the book.


ABC has canceled Pushing Daisies.

And another great TV show goes down too early.

Twilight, Twilight, Twilight

It's on talk radio, the coworkers are achatter about it, and I see a lot of Facebook statuses mentioning it.

Personally, I saw the last vampire movie I needed to see somewhere around 1995. ("I'm a vampire, but I CAN LOVE!")

What about you guys? fer it or agin it?
