Rock n Roll Lullabies.

kids, dogs, and rock n' roll

Because that’s the thing about Scooby-Doo: The bad guys in every episode aren’t monsters, they’re liars.

I can’t imagine how scandalized those critics who were relieved to have something that was mild enough to not excite their kids would’ve been if they’d stopped for a second and realized what was actually going on. The very first rule of Scooby-Doo, the single premise that sits at the heart of their adventures, is that the world is full of grown-ups who lie to kids, and that it’s up to those kids to figure out what those lies are and call them on it, even if there are other adults who believe those lies with every fiber of their being. And the way that you win isn’t through supernatural powers, or even through fighting. The way that you win is by doing the most dangerous thing that any person being lied to by someone in power can do: You think.

30 Day Friends ChallengeDay 10

Favourite Chandler Moment → His speech about wanting a kid.

Chandler is arguably the wittiest character on the show and he has certainly had his fair share of hilarious one-liners, many of which I contemplated choosing as my favourite Chandler moment. But I ultimately chose this scene because it reminds me of how much Chandler grew in the ten years of this show. When Friends started, Chandler’s only defining characteristic was that he was completely afraid of commitment and emotion. There were countless jokes made at his expense about how he would be the last one to get married, or how he would never have children. Entire episodes were devoted to running jokes surrounding his commitment issues and his ability to find something wrong in every potential girlfriend. But then he fell in love with Monica and that all changed. Here he is, in the last season, completely head over heels in love with his wife, and begging for the chance to have a child with her so he can start a family. He never lost his sarcasm or his wit, but falling in love did change Chandler for the better, and this scene proves that.  

One of Chandler’s shinning moments

An Open Letter to Kourtney Kardashian:
Congratulations. You’re expecting your second child. That’s wonderful news. And I’m sure I’ll read all about it the next time I am in the grocery store. That’s where I learn everything about you. And your sisters. And Angelina, Brad, and Demi. That’s pretty much the whole wide world if you can judge the whole wide world from the covers of the magazines at the checkout line. 
And, if you weren’t already busy (and, I’m just going to say it, a wee bit overexposed minus the wee bit part), I heard you just launched a ten-episode web series about being a mom on the E! website.
As a mother, I checked it out. I wanted to know what you had to say about parenting.  What issues matter most to you? What’s on your mind? 
It turns out that you kicked things off with a tour of your son’s hotel closet. Not surprisingly, your son has a lot of clothes. And hats. And sunglasses. And, he has a shoe collection that could rival Carrie Bradshaw’s. The main point you wanted to make? I’ll sum it up: “With boys, it’s all about shoes. I’ve seen so many little boys and their outfits are so cute and then their moms put, like, kind of dorky shoes on them.”
Well, gee. I’m a mom. I have three boys. What can I do to help them? I think they’re cute. But what if I think they’re cute but don’t realize they’re wearing the wrong shoes! I mean, not only are my three year old’s shoes not from this season. They’re not even from the season before that. Or that. He wears his older brother’s hand me downs.You see, Kourtney, not everyone who loves moccasins like you do can “get a new batch” in “every color” when her son grows out of his size of the month.
I want to (honestly) say that you seem like a nice person. But, please, do me a favor: get a clue. 
It’s estimated that 15 million American kids live below the poverty level. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, 21 percent of children live in families that are “officially poor.” (You can learn more about what’s considered “officially poor” here. And, while you’re on the NCCP website, take a look around.)
You have thousands and thousands of women and men who hang onto your every word. They want to know your thoughts about everything. My goodness, you and your family members are even among Barbara Walters picks for “The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.” People are interested in you. People love you. Take advantage of it. It’s not going to last forever. (See: Hilton, Paris) Take advantage of your way-more-than-15-minutes-of-fame. 
I did a little research. (It took me all of 10 seconds thanks to Google.) There are countless organizations throughout the country that provide underprivileged children with shoes. I particularly like “Shoes That Fit.” They get high marks from Charity Navigator and have provided hundreds of thousands of new shoes to children across the country since 1992. Given your influence and your obvious passion for kids’ shoes, I’m sure they’d love to talk to you. And, I don’t think they’d mind a donation either. 
Thanks.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

 via ifc:

Two things:

1. This is the scariest show ever made.

2. Every Saturday night, I’d turn off the TV during the ending credits of Ren & Stimpy because even the opening title for “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” frightened me.

This show used to creep the bejebus outta me!
