I remember I knew SO MANY Christians who were royally pissed that Superman was Space Jesus in that movie. Apparently Superman can be super, but he can't be son-of-god super. I tried explaining Superman's background and why there are those parallels, but it was too much for them. It was blasphemous that some guy in… » 1/26/15 3:13am Today 3:13am

It sounds like the crib was in the Master Bedroom, which is pretty common. The gun was kept on a shelf that was built into the bed frame, so you could reach immediately for it if you were woken by suspicious noises and felt the need to defend yourself. » 1/20/15 12:20am 1/20/15 12:20am

To be a bit more specific, it's the difference between intelligence and common sense. A lot of really smart people have this problem; they're super bright and bring a lot to the table in terms of knowledge and the ability to form concepts, and yet they cannot produce an ounce of common sense or tact. » 1/19/15 3:16pm 1/19/15 3:16pm

I'm in my late/mid-20's, which is the beginning of the Helicopter Generation (90's). I know a lot of people who I went to school with who were ALWAYS monitored and ALWAYS shuttled between sports, clubs, play dates, after-school classes, the gamut.

I love DC Animation with a passion, but that was hands down the worst feature they've ever done on every level. So bad I could have easily written a scathing review, breaking down why it was bad to a pre-production level.… » 1/17/15 9:16pm 1/17/15 9:16pm

Fun Fact: My community college did the Wiz while I was a backdrop painter. Originally they were supposed to do the Wizard of Oz, but then the head of the department bought the rights to the Wiz because it was cheaper, despite the fact that he had never seen The Wiz. He also didn't tell us he had switched to The Wiz… » 1/17/15 11:35pm 1/17/15 11:35pm

The only good thing that is really coming out of HSR is that it's connecting the Central Valley to the major hubs in the state more efficiently than Amtrak and driving. I used to frequent the Amtrak San Joaquin corridor. Picked up at Powell and Market in SF, bussed into Emeryville, jumped on train, arrive in Fresno 5… » 1/12/15 2:44pm 1/12/15 2:44pm
