  1. The thing is, if it's looked at as following a trend set by celebrities (just as an example), that doesn't work, either--Harris was born in 1997, WAY before a lot of kids started getting names like that. If anything, they were ahead of the curve. And not for nothing, but Ashley and Shannon used to be boys names, too, but have been recognized as girls names (among others) since at least the 70's. Just saying. ;) For what it's worth, Murphy Brown named her son Avery, after her mother. :)
  2. Country Music, Y'all!

    Our next entry comes to us by way of Australia. #56: Kasey Chambers. http://www.countryuniverse.net/2018/06/20/100-greatest-women-56-kasey-chambers/
  3. I kind of live for the day where they play sisters in a movie together. It just feels like something that would write itself once you get them in the same room.
  4. Unpopular Opinions

    Harassment aside, I think that's a big reason I've never gotten into either the Star Wars OR Harry Potter movies (or the books, for the latter): the fandoms are ANNOYING. * And seeing references pop up to them all over the place in mainstream makes me want to punch a wall, repeatedly. Sometimes the side of me that felt different or weird growing up wishes I could force myself to watch them just to get it over with, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Not right now, anyway. *A genuine apology to anyone a part of those fandoms here. I don't mean any of you personally, just the groups themselves can be SO over the top about it, and it can be smothering for those trying to avoid it. I NEVER want to trash fandoms of anything, as people can be fans of all kind of different things/intersect with others interests, so I don't want to paint TOO broad a brush here.
  5. To bring things back to Pink for just a second: I have to say, I can't help but be somewhat amused that, despite always having a "badass bitch" image (which she deserves, don't get me wrong), a lot of her most popular songs these last few years sound more like the soundtrack on a adult contemporary station for suburban soccer moms taking their kids to and from school in their SUVs before heading off to Starbucks. I mean, I understand that she's married and a mom now, and priorities change, but her image is almost EXACTLY the same as it was when "Get This Party Started" first came out. No shade, just somewhat funny to me.
  6. Absolutely. There are plenty of hardcore Jeopardy! fans who can name past champions over the years at the drop of a hat. Don't judge me, but I still remember the first five-time Jeopardy! champion I ever saw, back in 1996. I was seven years old. His name was Michael Dupee. (I only remembered his first name for a long time though--I eventually looked him up and found out his last name.) And of course, I still remember Ken's run. I was 15 in 2004, and watched as much of it as I could. I badly wanted him to lose by the end, but still.
  7. You put it in better detail than I did, and without making a joke about not having pets to show off on social media. (I probably should have left that part of mine--the first few sentences were enough as they were.) Very well said.
  8. I think it depends on what it is. Twitter has often been one of the biggest places for women to join and stand together on issues concerning abuse/other serious topics. If doing that helps raise awareness and keeps it from being swept under the rug, I'm for all that, every time. ...And on a lighter note, I don't have pets right now (nor am I in the position where I can have any at the moment), so I am unable to satisfy that area of Twitter, sadly (and since I'm one of the only people I know who is actually kind of scared of dogs, I'll have to stick to cats once I can finally have one). I'll talk about women in country music I love, though! ;)
  9. For the time being, I hold out hope that the main people he's blocking are MRA type assholes, and not women/people who are upset about what Chris Hardwick did and want him to be punished.
  10. I don't know, I feel like things ARE starting to happen to him. Nerdist denouncing him is certainly a start. Yeah. I refuse to be too dark about this. Everything that has happened over these last few months, in the long run, has given me hope. It's never going to be a perfect straight line. As long as we continue to looks toward the future, we can continue to see the light. :)
  11. I, Tonya (2017)

    More than a few years after--it was in 2010.
  12. This is so sweet! A fan on Twitter shared a newspaper clipping about Frisco & Felicia's wedding in 1986--it looks like a real wedding announcement! And Kristina shared it, too!
  13. I mean, she's a Friend of David (or a Scientologist, if you prefer), but since she was raised in it (like Elisabeth Moss), I have more sympathy for her than say, Jenna Elfman, who married into it as an adult. Yep! See above. :)
  14. Jackie: From Cop to Gilligan

    I think she actually won three!
  15. The rumor is that "Getaway Car" will be her next (and probably final) single. There were many from the beginning who thought it was the best song on reputation (probably because it sounds like a lost 1989 track), so I'm curious to see how that will work out. "I Did Something Bad" would have been a good choice, too, but since that song actually includes the word "shit", I KNOW she would NEVER risk a single that would result in a radio edit for a curse word! PERISH THE THOUGHT AND PASS THE SMELLING SALTS. :P
