Miss Iverson - please checkout a couple of episodes of Roseanne and tell me that "Girls" is the first program to breakaway from female stereotypes. Dunham is wonderful, but I look at "Girls" as the next generation's version of "Sex in the City". Eventually The Onion will gourd your ox and it's up to the reader to decide if the humor is juvenile, or you're taking yourself too seriously.
I'm going with #5. (No, not the Dice man, if you're counting down.)
The only sure thing is that it will be an absolute traffic shitshow.
This article would be poignant if it were written in 199... no,you know what it would never be poignant, just lame and what we've decided to call journalism now
What? You mean the sequence of Adam running shirtless across town to rescue Hannah in the last episode didn't make this list?
This is the mother of the young man that was found hanging. I'm so sorry for the man who found our son, that is something you'll never forget. He was a great kid (24 years of age ) just graduated from u of Chicago taught himself to play classical piano. Never was in any trouble, never used drugs he did smoke pot on occasion. No one knows why, there was no warning nor a note. He loved living in Brooklyn and a great job on Wall Street. And we will miss him forever. Thanks for all who cared
This movie sucked so bad
Pino Boresta vivrà. Nuova performance-blitz dell’artista romano durante la conferenza stampa della Biennale. L’outsider per eccellenza rivendica ancora una volta la propria esistenza
“I don’t give up”, urla a pieni polmoni Pino Boresta. E se c’è qualcosa che va riconosciuto all’artista romano, insieme a una rara genuinità, sono la tenacia e la convinzione con cui porta avanti la sua ricerca, da almeno un paio di decadi. Performer, situazionista (o “situazionauta” come ama definirsi), oltre che street artist ante litteram, Boresta è sbucato fuori dal pubblico della conferenza stampa della Biennale di Venezia, ieri a Roma, al grido di “Io vivrò”.
Dopo aver provocatoriamente annunciato, con email, post su forum e pubblicità sui giornali, che si sarebbe tolto la vita se Gioni non l’avesse invitato alla mostra, ha invece a sorpresa deciso di riaffermare con forza la propria esistenza, la propria condizione di outsider, di irregolare, di allegro e consapevole disturbatore. La performance, interrotta dal servizio d’ordine come ogni blitz che si rispetti, si è chiusa con un forte applauso, mentre Paolo Baratta, presidente della Biennale, riprendeva la parola dicendo a Massimiliano Gioni: “pensavo fosse una delle tue trovate”…
Qui ii video:
Wow- Nailed it. I never thought of skiing more cheaply before. That solves all my problems!
For my money, "The Pink Room" and "Bookhouse Boys" trump all of these. But it's one man's opinion.
The Onion wasn't belittling feminism. It was pointing out the absurdity of Girls trying to suggest that naive, infantile, narcissistic behavior is normal because it's acted out by a person who has an average looking body. Hannah, the character, is not normal. The actor playing her may have a "real body" but it's a mistake to assume she is a real girl.
The characters on that show play into young women's identity fantasies (which are not limited to women alone), into the self-aggrandizing, hyperbolic worldview that everybody and everything is high drama and borderline surreal, that every event has to be as intense as the well-edited narratives we see on reality TV. That's the brilliance of Leah Dunhams writing - she's conviced girls who believe they're more than average that the girls on Girls are regular girls. That's what the Onion was calling out.
Please check out the teaser for a new web series that I think will appeal to my fellow Lena Dunham fans. "Anna Danova" is about a neurotic indie musician awkwardly negotiating her way through a relationship one misstep at a time. She finds her footing by breaking into overly truthful songs in inappropriate moments. Please watch the teaser and share:
"But what it's parodying here is a female artist's ability to express herself without fitting into the pervasive stereotype of what a young woman should be. And that is the kind of juvenile humor that I thought was beneath the Onion. I guess not."
That "Onion" headline encapsulates the show brilliantly, unlike picking apart random Dunham quotes and acting like she is super interesting. I wouldn't ask Lena Dunham what her opinion on juvenile humor actually is, since it's clear that both the author and the woman herself don't understand it when they see it.
There is a huge difference between the ability to express oneself without fitting into stereotypes and creating a character stereotypical of Brooklyn hipsters. She's not creating a bold genre, she's creatively being a bold, naked joke.
For the record, your headline should read "FDNY Commisioner's racist son." I don't think anyone is accusing the commissioner of racism. Words, and the order in which they are placed, matters.
It was reported for spam and deactivated by Twitter haha check ya sources bud

You forgot about Hiatus Kaiyote...they're performing a couple of shows; one on Thurs (3/21) at Brooklyn Bowl and the other on Friday (3/22) at Le Poisson Rouge...they were, by far, one of the best bands at SXSW this year....just sayin'
Taking snapshots of our daily routines may be a great art. But sending nude pictures to show how creative you are is very much different. Teens misunderstood this. They sext because they thought its fun. They sext because they want to take revenge someone, but I can't imagine my child to be arrested because of this immaturity. So, before it will happen, I have this service, pgguard. I am using it to make sure I monitor my child's social networking accounts. I found my daughter's smartphone and saw her sexual nature. I am afraid she will use her smartphone to sext. Pgguard informs me on such suspicious incidents regardless of the device my daughter uses. You can check their website at www.pgguard.com.
