    i fucking hated this movie

    i haven't seen it

    but it's a sufficiently ugly conceit that i wonder if it wasn't intended as a plea for circumspection re: being cynical about how horrible everyone is and wishing ill on them.

    then again maybe not!

    Have you ever seen The Last Supper? It's the same basic conceit, but handled well.

    yeah i basically enjoyed that one. ron perlman is a treat when he gets to act.

    Naw I had like 40 after last PAXEast and I didn't even play LoL (although I have started in the last week or so. Pre-Ranked levels are way too easy though). My Riot friend couldn't give them away fast enough so he just gave me a stack

    Always kinda odd when I go to the Galleria on a Saturday and have to remind myself that's not a group of kids coming from their prom.

    It just seems like such a gross condoning of oppressive objectification and sexualizing of young girls.

    But, I mean, that's definitely a thing that people do.

    I've never actually been to one so I have no idea.

    They're "coming out" parties, more or less.

    It's just a concept I find really sqwick.

    So my brother. The one who kicked me out of our apartment when he got insanely irresponsible in life and thus I had to move to Texas for a long while.

    He was going to the hospital today for an appointment to setup a series of tests to figure out why his hearing is the way it is and what can be done to fix it. What I got was a phone call just a few moments ago informing me he's being taken to a special facility for 72 hours because he's on suicide watch.

    At face value that sounds extreme. But my brother is more manipulative than these people think. He's BAD at being manipulative when you see how it happens and how he contradicts himself over time. But I dunno. At any rate, even if this is real, I am really, really unsure of how I'm supposed to feel about a guy who is my brother but also kicked me into the most miserable phase of my life.

    when I went to both of my cousin's sweet 16s and their family friends sweet 16s it was just a big birthday and they seemed super happy

    probably not really the Sweet 16 thing atomika is talking about though, that sounds ceremonial.

    is he just a hater

    Dude, how did you miss this story? Lets see the reasons he hates me:

    1. I grew up poor. Not quite white trash but poor.
    2. My politics.
    3. My sexual orientation.
    4. That I was raised Catholic which I didn't think was a thing any more but apparently it still is in his mind.
    5. That I'm a Yankee.
    6. That I've been married once already.
    7. That I'm taller then him.*

    *This is conjecture. But he's short so I think we can safely assume it.

    Speaking from someone who's 3/4ths family members are total raging assholes, always better to find family among good people than good in your family.

    It can be, depending on how religiously-tinged the ceremony is, but Bar/Bat Mitzvahs tend to be much more about the person's transition into the religious community.

    In that way, S16/Quince is much more akin to debutante balls, being little more than a patriarchal expression of permission given to another person for control of their own body, performed in front of a crowd of their closest friends and family.
