  1. Just catching up after seeing the first 3 episodes of this season. Jane's "if men had to do it, they'd find a better way than have their balls crushed" (approximate wording) is something anyone who ever had a mammogram thought. This procedure is an assault on biology 😞 It's also sad to me that the print edition ceased to be. I used to be a regular reader of the print editions of magazines that ceased to print, and their online successor never filled the void (not only are the articles shorter and more generic, but now I seldom click on an article that doesn't seem like it'd interest

    Fix The Show

    That was exactly Parvati's thought process, clearly articulated in game to James in FvF. Indeed, but mostly in that this freaking fire making potentially gives an in to people who would have been out at 4 otherwise when losing the final immunity challenge because their social game was not strong enough to keep them in otherwise. And most often than not, it is men who are reliant on winning immunities to get to the end when they don't have strong connections that can take them to the end regardless of the outcome of final tribal. If we go back and imagine how this rule would
  3. I love your whole post (which I only quoted part of here). I do love in the 1991 version how Gaston is a text book catch, because that's exactly the kind of person who feels entitled to anything and anyone. I'm sorry to hear that he's different in the 2017 version, because I remember thinking way back then how great it was that the villain was not your typical moustache twirling one but instead the super popular dude who can appear attractive at first, but who turns out to be looking less for love than for a confirmation of his status as he sees it. It was quite refreshing to see back then, es

    S39.E04: Plan Z

    I'm thinking this convos with Rob and Sandra are not helping anyone. Except Kellee, so far (who was clever to hide the II in her hair and go full on Actor's Studio on her tribemates). That's not to say I don't like seeing Rob and Sandra, even though I think they don't add much - but it kind of make me want for see them in Jeff's role. What would add more is having them discuss strategy with who comes up, hear what the dynamics are, advice based on the strengths and weaknesses they see in the person they meet, and to maximise strengths/minimise weaknesses. But that's not what Survivor is s
  5. @ParadoxLost, you have all my sympathy. If at all possible, I'd say try to take a week off, and after three days of rest see what approach feels right for you. It's never easy nor optimal to make decisions while you're bang in the middle of things. I trust you'll find out what's best for you, my best wishes to you for getting some rest, finding peace of mind and keeping or getting the job you really want.
  6. Three episodes in, so far so good, mostly. The casting is good, and we see more of player dynamics than on earlier seasons. BUT we do lose a lot of airtime getting invested in people who will go to Big Head Island (TM @goldil), and as this episode showed it can be all for nought. Spending how many minutes of a 45 min episode on the 3rd person voted out is excessive (only makes sense if all newbie seasons are now casting opps for future returnee seasons). Especially as we didn't even see how Vince and Elizabeth interacted or not about Big Head Island, or why Vince was really voted off
  7. Agree on season 1 being better, although I did enjoy season 2 too. Lucky people who still haven't watched season 1!
  8. Yes not only did she think the clones looked nothing like her, but because she had conspiracy theories of her own she though theirs were really crap - as in I'm better looking than you, and my script is way better than yours.
  9. I agree that she's very underrated. I put it to her very often featuring on other singers' songs in mostly the same way. The first time I saw an other side of her was in Grand Piano. There are other gems on that album, such as Bed of Lies, featuring Skylar Grey. Those were never singles, so are not very well known, unfortunately. I can't seem to add links after the first so I'll just leave Grand Piano here. Overall, I think her singles are very limitative as to her whole range. I fully agree! The song is blah, the video has too much Ariana and too little Lana. Miley seems to
  10. I think the fact that Gaga didn't speak out makes sense. She seems quite introvert to me (yeah, yeah, I know, her public persona, which I'd say is in large part a mask) and probably needed time away from the public to process all new info that may very well have been news to her - not sure what song she did with him and when. I'm less lenient tough towards his producers and all who worked with him in close proximity for years, and did nothing to stop his behaviour.
  11. Well, as this is the unpopular opinion thread, let me say that based of the trailers I'm quite intrigued by the Joker. My interest has nothing to do with him being a part of the Batman universe. (Truth be told, while I really liked two Batman movies, one from Burton, one from Nolan, I'm quite remote from the whole background story, etc.). My interest in Joker is based on what I see as a compelling drama that to me seems interesting and played/directed with interesting insights. I would still root for Batman against the Joker in any instance, but that's not the point, because I don't even see t

    Awwww, looks just like mine when she was a kitten ❤️
  13. @Suzy Rhapsody, if she wants to celebrate her birthday with you on the actual day, I would say take her up on the offer, and do it as you feel like, or as you used to, including family. It doesn't have to be a late affair if you work early, and you could do it at home if easier. Just take it as an opportunity to celebrate her and show her you love her. Try not to let her get you into what you don't like about her actions. Basically, show that you're someone who'll love her, no matter what. And keep in mind that loving her is separate from not giving her all she wants or agreeing with how she l
  14. There may have been more if the actual number of steps was indeed above 300 but the number to count was 272.
