EPISODE 14: MAX BONUS MAX

Katie, Janine and Alex are BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!  So this week is a special BONUS EPISODE!  The first time we had Max Wittert on was for the RPDR Season 6 Countdown To The Crown.  We threw enough shade to fill a second episode, but some of it just wasn’t on topic enough for that week’s show.  So collected here are more random tangents than usual (if that’s possible) as we talk Moondust Menses, Stinking Roses and LOTS of Gia Gunn.  Enjoy!   - (music: http://www.bensound.com)

Girl Shit: Just Say No

thefatling:

This weekend, I was part of Boston’s 6th annual Women in Comedy Festival. I got to hang out with a bunch of other funny people, perform my funny jokes, and see a lot of funny shows in a cool city. Pretty typical festival experience, all in all.

Like a lot of festivals, this one offers panels &…

It would be nice, wouldn’t it, to live in a world where the media – tabloid and broadsheet – didn’t talk about and to unmarried grown women as if they were hysterical teenagers desperate to be saved by their prince, insane with a need to be married NOW. It would be equally nice if the media didn’t portray unmarried men as naughty schoolboys, terrified of those crazed women lurking around every corner waiting to kidnap them and take them to the altar.

The Avengers: Keeping Women Up! (Not in the Good Way)

(Yes, there are probably spoilers in here.)

I was pretty excited about seeing The Avengers. I didn’t go to a midnight screening, but I did go RIGHT after work on the Friday of opening weekend with my friend Lane. I’d sort of purposely kept away from all the press about it because I just want to watch the goddamn movie and leave me alone, so I was pleasantly surprised to see Cobie Smulders, from the new “Friends” / sitcom I zone out to at night, “How I Met Your Mother.”

Hey! Great! I like her! I’m always down for women kicking ass in any movies, really! I even like the S.H.I.E.L.D. outfit! Sure, it’s a… onesie, with belt loops, which… seems a little bit ‘90’s for this reboot, but it’s kind of sporty and— WAIT.

VOWS: Please, Help Yourself to my Haterade

Sometimes I read the Vows section of the New York Times to remind myself that I actually do have half a chance of finding someone who can complete my douchebaggery, possibly without ever even having to look abroad. Also, it freaks me out that people my age (perpetually 29) think they’re mature enough to be committing to anything for life. My last boyfriend had almost as many ex-girlfriends as Star Wars action figures (or vice versa, I’m not really sure). I have the same fear of ending up alone as any woman featured in a classic (read: terrible) romantic comedy, but these really do make me feel better in that I CANNOT BRING CHILDREN INTO A WORLD WHERE THIS IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY IN THE NEWSPAPER OF RECORD.

Obviously, the goods on display at this sidewalk haterade stand indicate that I’m all kinds of jealous because I want to be in the Vows section myself. Yeah, I do. I am planning ALL KINDS of ridiculous one-upping shit at my wedding, including an animal procession to include a tiger, elephant and camel (whatever, St. John the Divine does it every year. F*ck a flower girl!) and maybe an air show. I’ll hold a contest for ideas when the time is right.

This weekend’s couples were actually kind of boring. (There’s really only one king of the Vows stories that makes me see red in the style of Bluto and shows everything wrong with America, and I’m saving it for another post.) But despite the lack of anything super-juicy into which I can sink my fangs of derision, let’s start it off, shall we?
