There is real poetry in the real world, science is the poetry of reality…

Miss Beverly Hills makes some pretty horrifying comments about same-sex marriage and gays. The City of Beverly Hills promptly denounces, “She’s from Pasadena. We don’t have a pageant.”

Turns out, Miss California USA contestants can just randomly pick any area they wish to represent.

So, I, as Miss San Gabriel Valley, would like to state that this chick is nuts.

Also, fundamentalists and attention-seekers, please stop quoting Leviticus as your end-all Bible-resource on who should get stoned. Because, I mean, you’re doing it wrong.

One of the reasons I f’loved The Princess and the Frog is because it reminded me of the Renaissance of Disney animation, which was basically my childhood bread and butter.

So basically, I really want to see this.

Quick question for all my fellow millennial… what is your favorite animated film from your childhood? (Disney or not.)

I love her too much to comment on the contradiction between posing in lingerie and wanting people to stop talking about your body.

Start from the bottom, which is obvious, as long as you know how time works on the internet. Anyway. I don’t know if it matters who tweeted these or not, because they would have bothered me coming from anyone. In the interest of full disclosure, they are by a black male who plays a sport for an NCAA Div 1 team. He also goes to Bible study regularly. These are the main things that I know about him, and now you know them too. Moving on.

The particular mistress in question was attention-seeking, yes. Obviously. She slept with Tiger Woods. Does being a pornstar make her any less human though? No. Of course not. I’m really bothered by the casual misogyny and dehumanization at work here. Virgin/whore dichotomy *flashing lights, marquee scroll*, this woman has sex for a living. Elin deserves an apology because she was the faithful wife. The mistresses deserve nothing, regardless of their feelings for Tiger/whether he legitimately hurt them or not. I don’t have a clear point with this. Christian charity, my ass. Pornstars are people, too. That’s about it.

If this commercial doesn’t make you tear up a bit, you clearly have no soul.

Disney has been airing marathon upon marathon of Sonny With A Chance lately so I felt the need to compare it to Nickelodeon’s iCarly.

iCarly Sonny With A Chance
Network Nickelodeon Disney Channel
Tween Star Miranda Cosgrove Demi Lovato
Why You Recognize Her Drake and Josh, the movie School of Rock She and Selena Gomez were billed as the replacements for Miley Cyrus on the long, awkward Disney conveyor belt of overly sexualized yet “innocent” tweens. You recognize her from Camp Rock with the Jonas Brothers and YouTube videos where she and Selena made fun of Miley.
Does She Sing Her Theme Song? Yes. It’s actually kind of peppy if auto-tuned into oblivion. Yes, duh, she’s on Disney post-High School Musical. Kid doesn’t have a choice.
Show Premise Kids create an inexplicably famous web show on the internet. Lots of emphasis on technology and internet culture. Sketches are kind of funny, if broadly acted. (However, it’s a show for tweens, so what do you expect?) Show about a girl getting to be on a sketch comedy show similar to what All That was back in the day. It’s like a tween version of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and the comedy sketches are every bit as not funny as Studio 60’s.

Justifiable Excuse for Watching This show takes a pretty familiar premise, the show within a show conceit, and changes it a bit by making it more “modern.” It’s a web show! Internet memes! Technology! Slightly more relevant to the life that kids today lead, but minus all the sexting. It’s on Teen Nick a lot. If you’re embarrassed, you can pretend you just left it on while watching a Degrassi marathon, but that’s arguably worse. The iCarly special iSaved Your Life had insane ratings, beating out the show 24 so it’s not like you’re alone in watching it. Also, the humor on this show is slightly more mature than on Disney. They can get away with a bit more. (Bra jokes! Actual hormones!) I cannot in good conscience recommend this show. It’s pretty terrible and has a boring premise. The jokes aren’t even bad-funny. They’re just bad. If you must watch the Disney Channel, which, I admit, I like to do sometimes… watch Suite Life on Deck or The Wizards of Waverly Place.
Winner Funny, Cute, and Quirky Unoriginal Premise, Poorly Executed

However, this is all very subjective and pretty much just the opinion of someone who watches tween sitcom marathons while painting her nails and nursing her hangovers. What show do you prefer? Are you even familiar with either of these shows?
