That and when someone grabs her on both sides of the head and tries to kiss her on the muzzle.  One of my daughters friends learned a very startling and scary lesson about the dog's boundaries.  No blood, but teeth touched face. 

That child is lucky to have learned that lesson the easy way - I hope she has the sense to generalize it to all dogs. No one of any age should ever do that to a dog that they don't know extremely well.

I was once thrown out of a dorm lounge for not being able to let go of my rage that an episode of Friends ripped that bit off without a whit of shame.

I just could not let that shit go.

Good Lord, Friends was a fuck*ng bad television show. Well, it was bad at being a situation comedy, anyway. As some kind of rare half-hour-once-a-week soap opera running in stealth mode as a goddamned sitcom, I guess it was less bad but holy shit. Holy shit, did I hate that goddamned show.

I try to be fair, but it's my opinion that most television shows suck so hard. There are some cartoon shows that I have loved through the years, but in my opinion Looney Tunes are the best cartoons ever made.  Rivaled closely by Tom and Jerry.

When I think about TV and its effect on me growing up, I am surpized not only at the profoundness of the messages I absorbed, but also the surprizingly positive way it shaped me.  I was watching the highly age inappropriate Kids in the Hall from when it first aired, and without a doubt, from it, I built a sense of tolerance and joyful accpetance of the LGBTQ community.  I know it was TV for sure, and that show in particular, as both my parents are homophobic and I went to a Catholic school that was intensly anti-gay.  I was also watching Phil Donahugh a lot and sponging up allsorts of jems there.  I  also strongly remember both Sesamie Street and Mr. Rogers looking through the screen at me and saying I was special and worthy, even though no one else in my life was doing that, and somewhere within me a kernal of self-esteem was planted.  Likewise, I grew up in fairly intense isolation, but watching TV gave me a sense of the world and kept me company and gave me comfort.  The TV was always on, and there was not much talking in my house, so it was a steady diet of the boob tube.  I can't help but think that in some ways I turned out alright not inspite of TV, but because of TV.

Let's face it, there were a lot of typos in that last post.  That's what happens when I post from work, on Internet Explorer.

Oh, my goodness. The documentary about the puppeteer who created Elmo, Kevin Clash, just hit Netflix Instant, and he says the exact same thing. Regardless of how you feel about the little red muppet with chronically bad pronoun use, it's a really interesting look at how the principal people behind Sesame Street reached out to a little black kid from Baltimore and quite literally changed his life.

Straight up made Pedro cry.

Me, I am *weeping* at Quantum Leap tonight. Seriously, why are the best episodes so heart-wrenching? As I posted on Facebook,

Quote
It's been so long since I've seen "The Americanization of Machiko" that I completely forgot how it ended. Darn near made me cry. #Quantum Leap Year

It is hard to believe how well this series has held up over almost two decades. It's just perfect, and Bakula is flawless as the world's most humble super genius. I haven't rewatched it in about five years, I'm so glad LFM posted something about Quantum Leap and Leap Year on Facebook today and inspired me to pull it up.

It's on Neflix, for those of you who haven't seen it. I think the first 3 and the last 3 episodes are disc-only, but there are tons and tons of great ones to choose from in between.

The final episode is one of the great guy-weepies of all time, right up there with Field of Dreams.

Never saw it, but I do like Dean Stockwell quite a bit.

Apparently, the only movie that ever made my Dad cry was Rudy.
