We just realized Clarissa Explains It All was the most progressive show in the ’90s


i have to say – i’m soooo grateful for this article – everything i hoped for and more when i started creating the series. there are a lot of things i love about the renaissance in discussion about clarissa (first of all – that it mattered!) second that things i consciously planned for received the response i hoped for and third that many things i took for granted that were unsaid (like the stuff about her parents, her clothes, her friendship, her brother) shined through over time as assumptions that girls (and guys) that grew up with the show came to accept, claim and assume as part of their life and view.

you would not believe how retrenched the networks are in a new version of the old blinders – they still don’t see how they can appeal to both genders – as people – and they are still determinedly stereotyping girls and boys more than ever. but thanks so much for this. it’s clean clear writing and i’m thankful for it. i can’t wait to see what you guys think of the clarissa novel coming out soon! get updates at mitchellkriegman.com thanks! mitchell kriegman (creator of ceia) #thingsicantexplain #clarissanovel

Birdman Soared, But Selma Stole the Show at the Oscars


so the entire bland broadcast of the oscars 2015 was a big apology for the selma snub (or another way to get through without actually having to give “those people” an award) including the head of the academy’s endless virtually pointless speech – they got her out there so it could add to the count.
and in that way – very much like the bloated racially ambivalent snl40 broadcast – if you were african american – which i am not – i think these two shows pretty much sum up the cultural attitudes (at least the mainstream ones) toward race. if you’re hispanic american – you might feel a little better. #oscars2015, #selma #selmamovie #snl40

In an elephantine spectacle with few awards surprises, the Martin Luther King, Jr. movie provided a song and two acceptance speeches for the ages

What Would It Take to Drive Boston’s Snow to California?


So much for my brilliant theory – unfortunately it doesn’t hold water – at least not until we build a pipeline.
What Would It Take to Drive Boston’s Snow to California?

http://ift.tt/1B6ePoz

As we deal with two winters in the U.S.–warm and dry out west, cold and snowy in the Northeast–exasperated Californians watched as Boston got nearly 100 inches of snow in a month. The storms brought up a common question among parched westerners: what would it take to ship Boston’s snow to Californ…
