VERTIGO, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, PSYCHO Doesn’t include my favorite Hitchcock but REAR WINDOW is surrounded by B-level Hitch

True, though it was hard to find out he's a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

Specifically Sady Doyle’s critique. Also we’ve hit the point where he’s been around long enough to be the old guard, not the young rebel.

I still think he’s great, and love BUFFY/ANGEL, but suspect AGE OF ULTRON was a line.

It's intensely irritating to me that search UX on library websites compares so poorly to search on Amazon.

Have you seen this piece on it? It's a very good explicitly feminist defense:

DAMMIT. Good point. I love this song but I'm going to just shut up about it this year.

"We didn't recognize this address" is a terrible interface message when the only difference is the lack of +4 on my ZIP, .

We need to give people an alternative. You can love language without being a sanctimonious jerk about it. Use your red pen and your fire of righteousness to call out other pedants, not to go after people who are just trying to live their lives.

We already know that judging people's grammar isn't the right thing to do, or the kind thing to do, but how do we make it also not the cool thing to do? Well, I'm going to try putting it on a t-shirt.

Favorite pie is Key lime, but it's not a Thanksgiving pie. Favorite for the season: Cherry.

Almost ironic that the best Pixar movie is almost literally an "As the father of a daughter" story.

It's been a longstanding, justified critique that Pixar's oeuvre is week on central female characters. All the more clear why, now.

One thing about Lasseter and Pixar: It's pretty easy to see how the toxic, sexist environment he created damaged the company's artistic success.
