  1. I really enjoyed this from the music (add me to the list of people who didn't know The Impossible Dream was from this musical), to the set, to the quippy one-liners, to Peter O' Toole's physical comedy.  Ngl, I teared up a little at the end.

    Re: the gang rape.  You could interpret it as being a necessary scene to show the differences between the brutal reality of Aldonza's life and Don Quixote's perception of Dulcinea, but on the other hand, I don't know if they had to beat us over the head with it so much?  But on the other other hand, maybe it's better that they didn't sugarcoat it? 

    Anyhoo...did anyone else catch Sancho's line "hunger is the best gravy in the world"?  It's kind of a throwaway line, but it stuck out to me because Spain doesn't do gravy as we know it.  Apparently, the line in Spanish is "la mejor salsa del mundo es el hambre."  Usually, if you see salsa on menus, it means "sauce."  I mean, gravy is a type of sauce, but I feel like it's an odd translation choice, unless they meant this type of gravy...

    I cannot make up because I'm a possum impersonating a  human woman but I love make up and other people's abilities to use it. I'm very much on board for a How Did This Get Made Up segment on Wig Talk

    Too bad you weren’t born a raccoon with naturally fabulous smokey eyes.

    @Elektra Boogaloo @taylorannephoto speaking of raccoon eyes...

    so I use the Marc Jacobs gel crayon eyeliner for my waterline and it does not budge. Ever. It will never melt off your face. Highly recommended if you need a stick eyeliner. 

    I still need to find a liquid pen.  So far I’ve tried the Elf, Sephora, and Marc Jacobs, but they don’t compare to kvd’s opacity, matte, or smudge-proof features.  And none of them had the same kvd brush tip. My friend said Fenty wasn’t matte enough, but said the Clinique one was working out for her. So I might give that a go next time because I really don’t wanna shell out the $ for a Tom Ford 💸

    However I will say if you wear Kat Von Dee's eyeliner (I mean don't now because she's revealed herself to be an anti-vaxxing racist) that shit legit does stay on for forever. But that doesn't explain the rest of her makeup because she's very obviously got on mascara and eyeshadow and there's nothing in those worlds that won't smudge after three days.

    Ok, I was just about to respond to Elektra to say KvD's tattoo liner was my go-to.  That stuff would stay on even when my face was sweating waterfalls.  However, I stopped supporting that brand due to the above reasons.

    My wife (who owns the MSW complete series DVDs plus the movies) has been bingeing season 1 this weekend. I'm the opposite of others here, I grew up watching Magnum and have seen the entire series at least a couple times. I'm going to have to start watching it again and catch up on the podcast. I did see MSW periodically back in the day - especially the crossover episodes, obvs.

    HOLD. UP.  There are Murder, She Wrote movies??? 😱

  5. So apparently Kast had a q&a on Discord (🙄) and when someone asked if they would be using Rabbit’s virtual machines, they said they would “look into it.” 

    Sorry to be a Debbie Downer but it doesn’t sound very promising.

    Sooooo... I'm bumping this because I thought you guys might like to know that even though rabbit is done, they've lest the keys in the ignition and it seems to be working.


    I've started a room to see how far I got and it took a minute but it works. Anybody want to try for Friday?


    The problem is rabbit might poof at any time and it's been buggy as heck.

    That's the kind of classist thing I was talking about. It wasn't enough that he was successful. He needed to be successful in a "respectable" (i.e. blue blooded) kind of way. But after she says that, it's never really an issue again. After she says that to him she seems pretty into his music and I guess we're supposed to infer that something in the plot occurred that made her have a change of heart. 

    She looked at the model boat and it put her into a trance.  Perhaps that?  No, but seriously, she was constantly being mansplained about how to be a good woman and to come down from her pedestal - I think "high priestess" was thrown around - and maybe we're supposed to believe these talks put some sense into her?  🤦‍♀️

    Anyhoo, did anyone notice the weird gray makeup on Frank Sinatra?  And towards the end when we get a full shot of him from the left, you can see a gnarly scar on his face.  Apparently, Sinatra's mom had a difficult birth and the doctor had to use forceps on the baby's face during delivery, which left a huge scar.

    On the Tracy-Dexter relationship - did I miss why they got divorced? I remember her saying something about him almost ruining her life, but I don't know if they ever make it clear why they split up in the first place.

    Tracy wanted Dexter to become a “serious composer” or a diplomat, but instead he became a “jukebox hero,” which is not a reputable career, I guess?
