    Unsung

    I just watched this episode. I think your point is spot on. They will never be what they were in the 80's but there are a lot of people who loved and miss that type of music. I was in my early 20's when The Jets were popular. There are a lot of people alive today who remember them and who have the money to pay to see them. I recently went to a show at the Beacon Theater in NYC to a Valentine's Day 70's soul group show and that place was packed. The Beacon isn't Madison Square Garden, but it's nothing to sneeze at either.

    That's what I thought too. No one on the train was wearing a winter coat, so how cold could it be outside?

    So what, she has seven children? Is there something wrong with that now? I'm sure she didn't have them by herself. I thought the nose/eye reconstruction was amazing.

    I thought it was gross when they were at the bar and Fernando and no talent Adan took over the stage. Fernando can't even put his fucking ego aside to praise his elder son who isn't a Fernando clone. Adan doesn't even know who he is, he doesn't know what style of music he wants to sing, yet he wants to sing at the Super Bowl and be an international star by the time he's 35.

    But didn't Randall want to run against that councilman? I guess I'm trying to ask, why is one more worthy than another? Would Beth have wanted to teach if she hadn't spent time with her mother? Would Randall have wanted to run against the councilman if Chi Chi's daughter hadn't been mugged? I think in both cases they told each other what they each wanted to do next. As I said before, I think the issue is that neither one of them is happy with the other's decision.

    See, the issue that I have with people complaining about "Green Book" (not THE Green Book) was that a heck of a lot of Americans probably didn't know what the Green Book even was before the movie came out. If anything, that title itself could have sparked a discussion. There was a scene in the beginning of Green Book, which really struck me, the scene with the plumbers. I saw this movie in a packed theater in NYC and when those glasses were put in the trash can, you could hear the theater go, "shit," like people were shocked someone would do that.

    For some reason, I find that hard to believe. Housewives have been moved to "friend of" for a season. Why wouldn't they do that with Lisa?

    It makes a lot of sense. Maybe she is losing weight, it could be happening slowly though. The issue with weight is that it's not about being PC (which I consider being polite and respectful) but some people equate being overweight with traits that might have nothing to do with a person being overweight. And I think that's why people say things like, "you're fat shaming." Because people actually do that, shame people because of their weight.

    That's not what I meant. I feel if you're in a relationship with another person it's not cool to just decide to do whatever, just because you want to. I don't know if Randall explained why he wanted to run for office, maybe he did. He probably did so because that decision seemed to be kind of out there from what he was doing before, same with Beth's job. If I have a partner who works as a bus driver and one day announces that they want to be an actor, some explanation might be nice.

    S09.E06: Fifty Shades Of Shade

    Well, if someone did something heinous to me, I'd probably never talk to them again. I get what you mean, and in a normal situation, that's probably what would have been done. But, you can't have it both ways, you can't agree to be on a reality show, and get paid for being on said show, which is supposed to show your real life, and then want to do things privately, especially when it's with a cast member. Lisa's benefited by being on the show and with benefits, there are prices to pay, one of them being that your life is pretty much out there (which is why some might prefer to be "a friend of.)
  11. Her face scares me. Either she's been lying about her age and was born in 1950 and not 1960 or that is one rough looking woman.

    Yes, to this. I don't get why Lisa didn't go up to Dorit and just tell the woman that what she did was wrong. Dorit should have, could have called HER and told her about the issues they were having with the dog, case closed. But Dorit probably thought Lisa would think badly of HER if she did that, so she did the sneaky thing. and went behind Lisa's back. But that's stupid because wouldn't Lisa ask at some point, "how's Lucy Apple Juicy?" I don't think Dorit thought that far. I don't know if Teddi or Lisa was wrong or right, but still I don't get why Lisa didn't tell Dorit that she was wrong about what she did. It sounds like she didn't say anything because of Ken's relationship with PK, but so what? Sometimes friends do bad things, and relationships repair. Silly women.

    Very true. It is the new normal. I first got a mobile phone in 1999 and back then they were more back up phones, most people still had land lines. Today, most people I know don't have land lines anymore; their mobile phone is their only phone and it needs to be charged. How do we know they are fake? Because Randall got angry? Someone on this board commented how they too have left unkind messages, and it's also been done to them. But does that mean the relationship is fake because someone says something unkind? I also think some folks are uncomfortable with praise.

    And that's why I go back and forth with both of them. I think both of them are in the wrong. Beth got upset when Randall wasn't there when she was being introduced (?). I was like, really Beth, so what he wasn't there for the fucking introduction. I didn't even remember what the woman said. But to Beth, it was about her, she wanted Randall to hear what the woman had to say about her, because remember, she wasn't the best dancer and her mother made her give it up. "See, mom I'm DANCING." I agree with who it was that said Randall sitting in his car watching people go into the house was like Randall has always felt, on the outside looking in, not being a part of. That was why he left the ugly voice mail for Beth, "why aren't you here making me feel a part of?" Another person would have gone into the house alone and said, "I'm sorry, my wife is late, I'm a bit worried." People probably would have been sympathetic (What a caring husband!) Randall made it about him, just like Beth. They both need therapy.

    I forgot to say one thing that really bugged me. When Randall came to Beth's recital; he didn't make it for the very beginning when Beth was being introduced, and Beth kind of, passively aggressively got upset with Randall because he wasn't THERE when she wanted him to be there, just like she wasn't THERE when he wanted her there. To me, Beth and Randall are like two people who worked shitty jobs for about 15 years; and then both of them got the jobs they loved, BUT those jobs had strange hours, and they have kids and don't want to get help because the don't like the idea of "strangers" raising their children. Something has to give.
