Tammy Theatrical Teaser

Tammy Theatrical Teaser



Badtux says that it's women,  not men, that pressure women to conform to the beauty image.

I say, the evidence is not conclusive.

Take the advertising for Melissa McCarthy's new movie "Tammy".

Look at the movie poster. Watch the trailer.

Why does the Tammy in the poster not look anything like the Tammy in the trailer.

Look at the photo shop job done. Co written by McCarthy and her husband. But produced by a typical Hollywood company.

Scorecard Home



Interesting thing is: compare the scorecard here,














with the breakdown of red vs blue states.



from wikipedia



Not an exact match [flip the colors on the red vs blue states, blue to white, red to blue] , but close enough for conjecture.

I live in Ohio. All five of my siblings still live in Ohio. Guess we'd all better work on a quick exit strategy for when we are unable to manage on our own. Parents had 6 children to share the burden. We have from -0- to -3- children per family to shoulder the burden.

Unless a miracle happens and Ohio betters it's ranking on this scale.

But I don't really believe in miracles.

Aquaculture - National Geographic



Very interesting. I've not been much of a fish eater, except for salmon and tuna. I may need to start looking for tilipia recipes.

Luxury apartment? Sad, but not surprising, given the church's history. What really burns me is the last paragraph. The retired Vatican official will share the living quarters with 3 nuns: who will handle the domestic work.

When they [the nuns]  retire, will they get three live in apprentice priests, to take care of their domestic work?

Pregnant Pakistani woman stoned to death by family | World news | theguardian.com



 To all those privileged white males who try to say that women have too much power?

shut the fuck up



As long as women still face death at the hands of their relatives? For daring to marry against the families wishes? Then it's still a fucking man's world, and women continue to live in fear.  Media whores like the Kardashian's and Hilton's are the exception, not the norm. And they are successful only as long as they are still beautiful enough for you to fantasize about them. Let them get old and wrinkled? Shove them off the stage, to make room for the next media attraction.
