Definitely give improv a try! (Any theatre-plus-school will also have shows, so see one first to figure out if it's for you.) - Andrew C (✔)
Someone actually mentioned improv at this work happy hour. I might! - Shevonne from iPhone

How do you feel about people remaking Michael Jackson songs?
How do you feel about people remaking Michael Jackson songs?
Sometimes people up and surprise you. I didn't expect to, but I loved Alien Ant Farm's remake of "Smooth Criminal," a song I would've said you just can't do before I heard it. I suppose any really bangin' pop song can be covered by an amazing artist, and work. I've heard Janelle Monae cover stuff I'd have considered untouchable, but she brings it. If you boil it down, the answer is probably "just don't do it," 99% of the time, but man, that 1% can be amazing. - Jennifer Dittrich
Alien Ant Farm's "Smooth Criminal? >>>>> Any other MJ remake. - Cecily
There's an entire album of MJ classics remade with Brazilian influences (bossa nova, etc) called "Michael in Bossa" and I mostly like it. - Andrew C (✔)
Jenn, thank you for always commenting both on my blog and on the posts here. I replied to you on the post, but I will say here too that I actually liked the Alien Ant Farm cover of Smooth Criminal. - Monique Judge
You're welcome! I figure I want to contribute to the conversation in both spots! It feels like AAF is the exception. It's like trying to remake a Whitney Houston or Queen song. There's some serious legacy there beyond just the music itself, which is not for slouchers to begin with. - Jennifer Dittrich
Agreed! - Monique Judge
I like Chris Cornell doing "Billie Jean," but generally I'm not a fan of MJ covers. - Bren from iPhone
Giving "Smooth Criminal" a listen now. Nice! - LB: Unable to Can
I agree Jenn. I also loved the video. I also love Hi Tack's remake of "Say Say Say" - Shevonne

I'm glad you told her off. - Stephen Mack
Oh my gosh! I didn't know people over the age of 12 would do something like that. Glad you told her off. - Shevonne from iPhone
Oh, how horrible! I'm so glad you were able to respond - and so well :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Earlier I had a fantasy of you standing on the sidewalk with a supersoaker, blasting water through her open window. - Corinne L
I would rather you silently open your iPhone or whatever device and purposely videotape her hurling her hatred and then post it somewhere to go viral. Her little universe just got much smaller. - Janet
Amazing that Restoration Hardware still finds it economically viable to send out 15 lbs of catalogs via UPS in this day & age.
Amazing that Restoration Hardware still finds it economically viable to send out 15 lbs of catalogs via UPS in this day & age.
Seriously, is there any other company out there that sends out 11 separate catalogs in one package weighing 15 lbs? WTF. - rönin
Wow, that's insane. - Shevonne from iPhone
Wow. And here I thought Victoria's Secret was bad sending me 3 catalogs a week, even after I called and requested that they stopped. 11 catalogs..dos muchos! - Tamara J. B.
We got the same bundle. I was pretty surprised at the heft of it. - Brian Johns
I hesitated to recycle the volume on "Decorative Curiosities" or whatever it was called, because who knows when you might need a 3-pack of 100 year old blank journals to fill your bookshelf, or a reproduction of an old theater marquee letter to hang on the wall. - Brian Johns

Dark tale of love and murder in Pakistan's rural heartland -
MOZA SIAL Pakistan (Reuters) - A Pakistani man whose pregnant wife was bludgeoned to death by angry family members who did not approve of the marriage fondly recalled a brief life together with the woman he fell in love with at first sight. - Intense News

So when you find out some kid/s been picking on and physically hurting your kid, is it normal to want to smash them?
Yes - Shevonne from iPhone
And get them kicked out of school - FLEMING from Android
Melly - #TeamMarina
Is it taboo to kiss your kids on the lips these days? One of Josiah's classmates said something to me today when he saw me kiss Josiah goodbye that made me think he had been taught that it was wrong for parents to kiss their children on the lips.
I smooch G on the lips. - Johnny from iPhone
It never occurred to me NOT to kiss them on the lips. - Melly - #TeamMarina
They say you can pass the bacteria that causes cavaties. I don't kiss my kids on the lips but then again my parent only kissed me in the cheek, too. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I've never even had a cavity. - Melly - #TeamMarina
No taboos that I know of. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
I don't see anything wrong with that, Melly. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
My sister does, but I don't. I think it's just a personal preference - Shevonne
It's a real american/australian/english habitude, not very common in the rest of the world. Other than that, I don't think there's something nasty in it, so... go and smooch him. - Gatto Nero
As mine aged I slowly stopped kissing on the lips but I still smooch my teenager's cheeks when he'll let me get close enough. ;) - Lnorigb from FFHound!
My experience is similar to Lnorigb. I kissed Thing 1 & 2 on the lips when they were young, then moved to their cheek (or not at all); I still kiss the Kidlet on the lips occasionally, but I'm moving toward kissing her on the cheek as she gets older. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I kiss Jayden & my younger nieces & nephews on the lips. I do kiss my kid on the cheek more often these days, but we're a affectionate family & me & my very large brother still hug & kiss both our parents. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Depends on the family. Mine kisses their children on the lips, but some people are weirded out by that. - Big Joe Silence
Probably personal preference. I do not. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I think it's a preference thing. My experience was like Mr. Noodle's - I think I kissed my parents on the lips when I was much younger, but now it's cheeks and has been for a long time. - Laura
I recall covering high touch / low touch spectrum in cross-cultural studies. Here's a write up on the role / history of touch that includes references - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I'm riding the cultural train of "lip smooches until she no longer wants me to kiss her goodbye/be seen with me. Then it's cheek smooches when I can get/give them". - Johnny from iPhone
Cheek. Now more of an air kiss. - Janet from FFHound!
That's how we feel too, Johnny. Same with nudity. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Reading that now Micah - thanks! - Melly - #TeamMarina

Study: Maternal mortality is on the rise in the U.S.

I am not surprised at all. Look at how pregnancy and childbirth is handled in the countries with low maternal mortality. It's all done very, very different than in the United States. - Rochelle
RT @Salon: Horrifying: Family told their dog was euthanized only to find out it was secretly being kept alive
That's seriously twisted. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Welp. I couldn't even go past the full headline before I felt sick. I can only imagine the story gets even worse. - vicster: full-bodied
The good part I can tell you: a former employee tipped the family off & they went in the clinic & rescued their dog themselves. Then authorities raided the clinic, & hopefully that vet will never practice again. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That's is HORRIBLE!!!! - Shevonne

So I'm sick...apparently I had a virus and it attacked my liver...I'm on bed rest less than 3 weeks I'm having 60 people at my house for g's communion and there is still a ton of stuff to do...oh and husband has to travel the week before the communion....yay me.... :((
Oh no! Take care of yourself first! - Katie
Ack!!!! Rest. Rest. Rest. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
:-( Take care. - Betsy
Dang. Take care of you. Anyone you can farm some of the prep work out to? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
That's awful. Here's hoping you fell better soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you. - Friar Will
Oh no! If you can get yourself some spirulina powder and sweet wheat grass powder it may help. I had chemical hepatitis from an anesthesia event. My LFT's were in the 1600 levels. This is what truly helped me get back on my feet. I also ate very bland. Less work for my liver to process things is what my doctor told me. I hope beyond hope you can get some help. - Janet
Sending you healing thoughts & prayers. - Corinne L
Hope you feel better. Take care of yourself. If you have to postpone the get together, you should - Shevonne from iPhone
Get well soon! - John (bird whisperer)
You can give your liver a bit of a break by switching to a very low fat diet for awhile. - April Russo
Feel better soon! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I hope you're feeling better soon! *hugs* - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks for the kind thoughts. I am on a bland diet right now with lots of bed rest. Although husband did drive me to see g play football today. At times like this having friends would be helpful but I don't really have anyone I can call. Got to keep plugging along. Postponing g communion is not an option since her ceremony is the last one at our parish until next year and I don't want... more... - furrworld

We told the kids last night and now they keep asking me every minute "are you feeling better yet mom?" It's killing me how worried they are. - furrworld
You take care of you. DM me if you want my mom's info - I will have her go over and make sure youre resting like you need to be, and help you with planning. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤

Wow, that's amazing, Shevonne! (I got 110 out of 170.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Which ones haven't you seen? - Shevonne
A lot of the romance, drama and animated ones listed. And The Breakfast Club. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
"You checked off 76 out of 170 on this list! Nice. You’ve seen all the major films and then some. Clearly you enjoy your ’80s flicks." - Betsy
152 out of 170. - Tamara J. B.
141/170 but its a good thing I didnt have to check how many times I'd seen some of them :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Only 75. - LB: Unable to Can
145 - Bren from iPhone
I stopped checking and just went down the list. It was too tedious :D - Shevonne
100 out of 170. A lot of them I didn't watch until well after the '80s :D - Victor Ganata
I've seen 33. - Amit Patel
127. I missed a lot of chick flicks. A handful of animations. Random dramas. - Rodfather from Android
Without looking (because buzzfeed and because there are 170), I'm just going to assume a lot of them? - Derrick
I wonder if by 'iconic' they simply mean 'made in the 80s'. - Akiva
That was the time when video rental stores showed up and we had to watch everything. - Rodfather from Android
107! I remember my mom covering my eyes during certain parts of Platoon. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Having looked at those images I have to ask this question, "Bette Midler was famous?" - NOT THE CRICKET
Only 155 out of 170, but I am not even remotely interested in seeing the ones I haven't seen yet. - Friar Will
116, but I have probably seen parts of many of the others. - Joe
143. I just made Eivind watch Clue last night! :D - Jenny H. from Android
126 that I can remember seeing. Actual total may be higher. - April Russo
There are some that I thought were in the 90's but I guess looking at IMDB, they were released a few years before 1990. - Shevonne
My part of Oakland is going to wither up and crumble apart and the only thing left will be those of us who can't afford to go anywhere else.
That sounds awful - Shevonne
Probably won't have any sports teams here by 2020, and the Coliseum complex will be acres of underused space while the same area will be passed over by airport traffic ignoring all the surrounding businesses, riding in the new BART airport connector. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Then, it will inevitably be "discovered," and mass gentrification will ensue. - Julian
Oakland pays millions of dollars to settle police brutality & other kinds of lawsuits while ignoring the needs of suffering schools, crumbling roads, crime, and almost everybody east of Lake Merritt. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Gentrification's been underway for decades already. We're like the poster child for gentrification :-( - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And now the Warriors are moving. - Julian
Exactly. & there's a bit of a money conflict that could potentially mean they go to SF & leave Alameda county taxpayers with some of their unpaid bills. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
You mean "Contract? What contract? We don't remember no stinkin' contract"?--the $61 million question, and I suspect the Warriors won't like the answer. On the other hand, the A's might be staying, "might" being the operative word. - Walt Crawford

15 Ways to Stay on Budget — Even With Your Spendy Friends
"We all love spending time with our friends. But if you find yourself dipping deeper into your pockets than you'd like for get togethers, you might wonder how to cope. I, too, am on tight entertainment funds. In fact, now that I'm a full-fledged adult, I thought it would be prudent to put myself back on an allowance to stay in check.

Netflix is raising prices - and it won't deny that Comcast played a role
I'm not even mad. Their service is worth it, in my house. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Existing members are grandfathered in for a time period. - Shevonne
I'm upset. their streaming catalog (and search) have remained intolerably mediocre. if they raise the prices, they better start adding in new releases, art films, and improve their online experience. they aren't worth $100/ year as it is. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan from YouFeed
Their anime collection is lacking as well. I know they will probably never be Crunchyroll, but at least be a bit better than Hulu - Shevonne
I looked at the Netflix letter carefully, from my position as a delighted DVD/Blu-ray-only subscriber. Netflix doesn't clearly include it in the table, but--on a per-subscriber basis--disc subscribers continue to be a lot more profitable for Netflix than streaming subscribers, thanks to first sale. The lack of a vast catalog is also thanks to first sale: Netflix can't force publishers... more... - Walt Crawford
