Rock Steady: 3-0, 12OT. I would love/hate to watch this entire game. Also, it just occurred to me, WHY ARE YOU EVEN SHOOTING THREES AFTER ALMOST TWO HOURS OF BRICKS?... [more]

That was a weird episode, even given the baseline weird levels we are dealing with in the Land of Ooo. I was kind of glad the show had seemed to put the whole Finn/Flame Princess/Princess Bubblegum triangle behind itself, so I'm not super thrilled we... [more]

Leaving a small child child alone, unsupervised and not within your sight in public is neglectful. I think this mentality is exactly the thing that Lenore Skenazy has been talking about for years. The idea that our children should be in... [more]
