I am here to do my civic duty of calling out the microaggressions and inequalities that were glossed over during the promotion of sexually liberated women in New York City. As a fan of Carrie and her squad, I must hold them all accountable for the outdated beliefs they shared over many brunches in the 1990s. The writer and producers of the reboot can thank me later.
A review of her sophomore album “Sling”.
Look who’s out with a new special again.
The point made by the gap between the professed morality of superheroes and the actuality that lies behind Vought’s branding in The Boys is not particularly subtle or pioneering, but I think it is an important one in the world of parasocial relationships.

Though I never watched any of his shows before, John Mulaney was comforting. He is charismatic and agreeable. Cackling under the rainbow lights strung around my dorm with my roommate was one of the first times I felt UNC was the right choice.

I Care A Lot follows Marla Grayson, Pike, and her lover/business partner Fran, Eiza González, as they systematically, and somehow mostly legally, grift the livelihoods of old people. First they assume guardianship of the elderly with help from one corrupt doctor and an overworked judicial system. Then they promptly put them in nursing homes — cutting them off from their families as they sell their homes and belongings. The plausibility of the grift and its alignment with the morality of productivity culture seems to be the movie’s primary social commentary. It is terrifying to watch.
