In last week’s episode of I Hate It But I Love It, Jocelyn and I discussed The Devil’s Advocate, which was a lot less campy and a lot more upsetting than we remembered. Content warning: the episode includes discussion of sexual violence against women and children, incest, and suicide. This movie is awful. (You can subscribe to I Hate It But I Love It in all the usual places, including Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, and Pocket Casts.)
What a sad, sad, little man:
One of our friends, Trish, was mentioning that she was nervous for a driving exam, so Jean was trying to reassure her. Which would be fine, except she used the exact phrasing she uses when she's powering me up. I got really upset and stayed quiet for the rest of the movie. When she asked me what was wrong, I told her the truth. I feel like she shouldn't be wasting my power words on other people. I need them most
People with pregnant parters, don’t tell them that them rubbing their bellies bugs you:
I get that it's about bonding, but I asked her to maybe not do it so much around me because it makes me uncomfortable. I got told I was controlling and unsupportive, but those are pretty outrageous claims considering how much support I have given her. Never once have I complained about anything until now, so what she said was extremely hurtful. She doesn't even see me that much during the week, so I don't understand how I am controlling.
What a cutie pie:
Excuse me, she named the baby Rum Tum Tugger:
Speaking of Twilight:
This week’s “oofamagoof”:
(via broken-skies-and-angel-wings, thread found here.)
This is several years old but I only saw it this past week: You should really watch all of the Bad Lip Reading version of High School Musical, but if you must only watch one clip, please watch this one:
Also here’s a really good TikTok.
How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled, NPR — This made me furious. All that plastic you think is being recycled is almost entirely just going into landfills and oceans, because new plastic is better, easier, and cheaper than recycled plastic, and the oil industry simply funded a propaganda campaign to avoid responsibility.
The Story of How ‘Saturday Night Live’ Made the “Stevie Nicks’ Fajita Roundup” Sketch, The Ringer — I didn’t know I needed this, but I did.
The Woman Whose Husband Is Sleeping With Her Best Friend, The Cut — Ah yes, this totally real and NOT AT ALL FAKE sex diary. Very believable and absolutely not some dude’s made-up fantasy.
That’s all for me today, gorgeous! Talk to you soon.
