    I considered watching it just to check out JA playing against type, but actually sitting down to watch anything that's not Scooby Doo or Phineas & Ferb is out of the question these days.

    Get your kids into Adventure Time. It's actually a really great show.

    I just bring on the nature shows. Even the ones not oriented towards kids. She is fascinated by them. I think they're much healthier than any of the other kid fare that's out there. Even the wholesome ones fuck your kids up in ways you can't quite identify until it's too late.

    Ours was/is really into "The Fresh Beat Band," which is really a nice clean show about a bunch of high school students who play musical instruments in a band and sing and dance and learn lessons about sharing and being kind etc etc. Good clean fun.

    The problem is, since it's late teen actors playing it up for kids, the acting is really exaggerated and dumbed down. When someone is sad, they sigh heavily and put on an exaggerated frown, hang their shoulders, and say stuff like "that reeeeealllly hurt my feeeelings." Frowny. Face.

    Well, sure enough, now my kid thinks that's how you're supposed to act when you take away the tambourine she's been using to smash away at your hifi. She's just gotten really over dramatic. All from, IMO, watching these goofy ass shows that at first blush seemed wholesome and positive.

    Beware of that shit. Be very fucking ware.

    It's a hard world. The sooner she has an appreciation for that, the better, IMO.

    when my nephews were 3 and 7 I'd pop in concert DVDs. The weirder the better. I remember their favorite being Radiohead's Meeting People is Easy and sadly my wife's Michael Buble pirated DVD concert she bought in asia.

    One of my nutrition TAs had this really lean but you-could-tell-he-worked-out type of bodies. He was like a half-black, half-French Canadian Adonis. My god.

    This is the check from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to my client from when they seized his $17k+ in cash from his car without ever finding drugs and without ever charging him with a crime. Took like 3 years, and this whole check is basically going to my office for legal fees, but there you have it.

    I am glad things worked out so well for your client, Harvey. Justice has prevailed, no two ways about it.
