Here are a few more clips of Adam Mordecai geeking out about politics. It's political season and Adam is a big proud liberal. Here at IAS, he's obsessed with Democrats with Spine, even! So how has Adam reacted to how moderate President Obama has been thus far, and what is Mordecai planning on doing this election? His tweets tell the story:
Halloween rolls around once a year which seems hardly enough. There are few things in a childs life as important as candy. I was five or six the first time I became truly cognizant that Halloween was a day that all of my neighbors, including the old lady that yells at me for running across her lawn, were obligated to give me FREE candy. As we get older the candy is less of a draw. Halloween in your 20s and 30s becomes a day to live like a child, to play dress up and be a monster, ghost or slutty cop.
Jason seems to be affected by music to the point of religious transcendence. I guess I'm jealous. Perhaps I have NO taste in music. I don't mean that I have BAD taste, I'm just a visual creature and have a propensity to be moved by a painting rather than an orchestra. I do remain conscious however that music can have profound effects on people and to judge them on their taste can be extremely hurtful. Tread carefully and either appreciate their appreciation or buy them a pair of headphones.
We all have a costume that we tell tales of... the Halloween costume that inspired spontaneous applause from passers-by. Zoe has one that she loves so much she recycles it year after year. Whatever you do, don't call it a dinosaur. She will adamantly tell you, it's not a dinosaur, "it has a face." I'll admit that we may not know exactly what a dinosaur looked like with it's skin on, but Hollywood and the bones in museums have led me to believe that they do have faces.
For me the term "ritual" brings about mental images of people in robes sacrificing virgins on stone altars, which, given Seth's predilection for being devilish and stealing props, wouldn't be all that surprising.
I loathe reality TV. I do. On the surface... Mary has inspired me to let my secret out into the light. The truth is, there are some reality shows that I am addicted to in unhealthy ways. Here is a comprehensive list of reality shows that I have watched more than 2 episodes of along with my reason/defense for watching them:
**The Real World**
- Everyone watched this when it premiered in '92. I totally had a crush on Julie with her Alabama drawl.
- Watching cocky meatheads and barely dressed women do incredibly convoluted stunts. What's not to love.
James Bond has been played by six different actors in 22 films. Sherlock Holmes has been played by 75 actors in 211 films. The good doctor falls somewhere in the middle of that range having been played by 11 actors in 756 installments (episodes, films, specials).
John may think the only time he can let things flow is when he's doing a storyboard, but clearly he has no trouble, "letting it flow," when talking about Eisa Davis. It's easy to figure out why John would be so flustered around someone like Eisa. Eisa Davis graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, and in 2007 was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her play Bulrusher. In addition to those already impressive credits, she is gorgeous, a classically trained pianist, singer/songwriter and an actress. I think we would all be a little weak in the knees to share space with her.
