Carina Chocano does an amazing job discussing the problematic ways women's stories get told, ranging form how women face objectification and sexualization, to how women always end up in marriages no matter how fierce or strong they seem, to how we glorify youth and innocence and slight playfulness in women and devalue all other attributes. She discusses an impressive array of pop culture, including in-depth analyses of PLayboy magazine, Flashdance, Trainwreck, Mad Men, Sex and the City, and so much more. A solid quote about ageism that highlights her conversational yet compelling tone:
Every single human being Recommended to Brian by: My Language Arts teacher assigns us a book report; tells us we can choose the book but that our grade will be based on the maturity of the novel the report is based upon. My mother and I are in K-mart. I've mentioned to her about this book report to be done, and so before we leave with a basket filled with clothes I know I will be embarrassed to wear, we stop by the rack of books.
She selects a few pulp paperback titles, throws them into the cart. A few days later she hands me F I am in 6th grade. A few days later she hands me Fahrenheit You should like it.
When does a 12 year-old boy like anything that his mother does? I admit to myself that the cover looks really awesome - a black suited, menacing man shooting flames over something that looks like books. I give it a go. Tearing through the pages, the chapters, the three sections, I finish it over a weekend and am in awe.
A fireman that starts fires? I look at the small library that I've had since childhood; a shelf of about 30 books. They now look to my 12 year old eyes as books of a child. Fahrenheit is the book that launched me from childhood, my first book dealing with the adult world.
I ask my mother to box up my old books and put them in the attic. I am proud to start a new library with this novel as my first edition.
I carefully, lovingly, sign my name on the inside cover. Let the firemen come, I think, I am proud to be a book-reader. I continue to read this book again and again through the years. I enroll in a college course at Penn State my freshman year, simply because this book is on the course materials.
I memorized the entire poem Dover Beach because it is the selection Bradbury chose to have Montag read aloud to his wife and her friends. As the years roll by, and I age through my 20s and 30s, I noticed that fewer and fewer of the people I know read any books.
Even my avid reading friends from childhood moved on to their careers, their marriages, their children. In the late s a friend invited me to his house to show off a proud new purchase - a television screen the size of one of his walls.
I mention how frightening this was, that he was basically mainlining Bradbury's foreshadowing. He handed me a beer and fired up Star Wars; told me to relax.
I watched the movie and felt like a traitor. The last time I read F was about 10 years ago - I think I was afraid that if I were to pick it up again that it would diminish in its importance to me - much like Catch and The Sun Also Rises.
But on this first day in May I have a day-trip to Socal for business and I bring this book with me. And I love it, all over again, as if reading it for the first time.
Until Infinite Jest came along, this was my favorite book. I joined Goodreads in with low expectations. I am not a social media person. I've given up twice on Facebook; the last time for good.
But there was something I found here that reminded me of Montag's joining the campfire of fellow readers. We may all be from different walks of life from places all around the world, but we come here often and with excitement - because we love books.
They are some of the most important things to us and our lives would be ruined without them.Which kind of movies do you like best？ and i hated every minute of it.
people were actually yelling at the screen going. "Oh how fricking stupid!" I walked out wanting my money back. What is the best action/thriller movie of all time?I haven't seen a good movie in years! It seems like the quality of movies has gotten worse lately, no. View the spoiler free version.
Brisingr, or, The Seven Promises of Eragon Shadeslayer and Saphira Bjartskular is the third book in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.

arteensevilla.com Arthur Asher Miller (October 17, – February 10, ) was an American playwright, essayist, and figure in twentieth-century American theatre. Whereas only one of Argento’s movies is not a horror movie, Bava also did westerns, sword and sandal movies, and a superhero movie, Danger Diabolik (which is one of my favorite superhero movies).
Highly recommend Diabolik if you are looking to get into his non horror stuff. Often the answer is no, so over the last few years I’ve seen The Shining at least let’s say several times. Amazingly, it never gets old. To say that Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel is a great movie is not a controversial view.
Nor is it controversial to say that The Shining is endlessly watchable.
