Curious George Wiener Dog Song

I’m putting this here because I can’t save it to my iPad and Kell asks for this song a thousand times a day. There’s a tenner for anyone who knows how to download it.

I Finished the Squat Challenge

And I’m so proud of myself. I’ve got the type personality that when I start something I feel compelled to finish it, no matter what. So I thought I’d apply that personality quirk to fitness. And it worked. If you’d told me I could do 175 squats (WITH GOOD FORM) I would have laughed at you, but I did it. So now I”m taking on another challenge 10k steps (that’s five miles) plus squats and pushups. I haven’t done pushups since I hurt my shoulder years ago, so I’ll definitely be doing the modified version. But here we go. I’ll keep y’all posted.

“Parable of the Sower” and the Value of Education

I’ve often wondered why Octavia Butler’s Parable stories have never been optioned for a movie, or at least a series on one of the cable channels, but I just realized why that will probably never happen: It’s too real. Stories where the apocalypse is brought on by nuclear bombs and whatnot is one thing, but one where mankind is brought to its knees by greed and ignorance? Butler was a seer, these stories have such prescience that they should be in ever schools curriculum, which is the very reason they will not. Our society will not go out with a bang, but with a whimper.

The Big Sleep: Sleepy Hollow’s Least Shocking Death

Mala pretty much summed up everything I have to say about the fuckery that is Sleepy Hollow these days. They’re so impressed with their “surprise” fall finale. Gee, they killed the black guy. A trope so common it’s now fodder for every third rate hack out there. And I will never watch another show with a redheaded woman in it. What.the.Fuck is with these writers and the gingers!?! They fucked up Grimm the same way. Hell, they’ve got Katrina in a goddamned corset. Call me crazy, but I would imagine any woman brought two hundred years into the future would drop the corset ASAP. These helpless damsels in distress give me a jock itch. Seriously.

Jenny-Abbie-Irving “Are we allowed to be here? Should we leave?”

As FOX’s sophomore supernatural hit Sleepy Hollow breaks for midseason, it seems to have taken the “hollow” part of its moniker to heart. The show that surprised and charmed millions of viewers in the fall of 2013 with its combination of solid character work, whimsy and genuinely creepy lore — cinched by the chemistry of leads Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison — has lost its soul in its second year, becoming a rote, tiresome exploration of Crane family pathos.

Looking at an interview with TVLine, it appears that executive producer Mark Goffman may have no idea why that’s a problem. “One of the things I think we’ve looked at over the course of the season is what a really difficult position Katrina’s been in,” he says, going on to talk about how “this season is really about family, redemption and…
