    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    I hate that as a child they were legitimately my favorite band. It was a close call but they beat out the Spice Girls. Try telling a class full of 4th graders that The Barenaked Ladies are your favorite band when you're Student of the Week. It's just a mess of awkward giggles and screams at the words naked lady. You have completely lost your audience! No one even wants to hear about your Beanie Babie collection! And it was impressive( due to parental guilt at having to travel an obscene amount) !

    Was no one else Concerned that Suze put a RAW EGG in her smoothie concoction and tried to feed it to Michael in the morning at the star of the movie?! She claims ghosts exactly how her mom made it!

    Also didn't it end near a wet street? It looked like she was near a puddle. The sugar would have melted in it even if they had kept going!

    Clearly the homeless brother was so wracked with guilt by their past crimes and indiscretions he turned to drink and became a hard core alcoholic to deal with his PTSD.

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    How on earth did the Signore even get a teaching position with the list bullshit the principal rambled off?! He's been thrown out of two schools, forged famous paintings, and changed his identity 4 times! Do we think this means he's I arrested before and is a known felon? He has to have been right? This guy definitely has served time. Or has he just always managed to be two steps ahead of the cops? Either way he's got to have investigations open on him and his various identities! WHY DID SHE NOT DO A BACKGROUND CHECK BEFORE HIRING THIS GUY?! If she could find all this out why didn't she at least check him out during a trial period at least! The way it's stated in the movie it sounds like she decided to get this background check done fairly recently, so this must have all been either very public information , this principle has friends in Interpol (I don't know what Canadians have in liue of the FBI), Or she needs to quit her job and open up a detective agency because she's just That Good!

    Ok butI feel like the Signore was teaching a valid point in his art class that day. Not that you shouldn't have imagination, but that today's lesson was Realism or the study of figure drawing . I don't know much about art so maybe I'm wrong but I feel like there is indeed a time and place for painting/ drawing what is truly there and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think it's a valid lesson but The Signore is obviously an awful teacher.

    Ok that mom 100% is leaving that alcoholic dad! He had some kind bed upstairs because he's clearly too sloshed to make it down the stairs after he paints his shitty paintings. Let's be real here he spends most of the time up there drinking. I'm willing to concede *maybe* the mom's dad died and she may even be in Australia to sell the house, but that's just to get a nest egg going to start her new life! Probably in Australia because if I were her I'd want to be as far away from that dysfunction as possible. It's clear from the way Suze acts she's been in this mom role for a while and is used to caring for her dad. Because he's a fucking disaster and can barely function. He needs help. Suze is The only thing holding this family together. The mom has been checked out for a WHILE. Maybe she's having her midlife crisis and is secretly Eat Pray Loving . I don't know. I just know that the children know something is clearly wrong. My mom used to work as a quality auditor in blood banking and would travel around the country for a week every other week. I get missing your mom. But I wouldn't be angry and resentful that my sister was wearing her robe. It's clearly because they know something is wrong, there is tension there. There is a fear that she won't come back. I know that international phone calls are pricey but if your child suddenly had a weird unknown medical condition wouldn't you let him call his mother? Unless you had a very contentious relationship OR SHE WAS GETTING READY TO DIVORCE YOU AND YOU WERE ABOUT TO GO THROUGH THE START OF A SEPARATION! I'm telling you the reason the dad hates Connie is because he mentioned how bad their marriage is because that kid would. The scene after the mom gets in the house after they all settle down is going to start with her telling the kids she has to sit them down and have a talk.

    I was genuinely terrified that there was going to a scene where they made magic paint brushes from magic growing pubes. I truly had the fear of God in me.

    So I took some time off because I was super depressed and my anxiety made it imposible to finish anything and I couldn't lsten to a whole podcast episode. I'm actually still really behind on the show but I missed you all so much, And THIS is the shit I come back to? I haven't even started The Peaunut Butter Salution and am just staring at the poster and already I feel I need an Emotional Support June for this motion picture. I should never leave the podcast unsupervised. I don't know why but I just feel like I could have stopped this somehow. Let me have that dream of control as I go down what looks liek a terrfying and very sticky nightmare
  13. The days have lost all meaning I keep missing Musical Monday because Monday doesn't mean anything to me anymore. What is time?

    Episode 236 — The Great Wall (Live)

    I don't know much about Chinese history . This actually isn't going to be very useful, I just wanted to show everyone one of my favorite pieces of art from my local museum ( The Flint Institute of Art). It's a Han dynasty model of a watchtower. It has tiny watchmen with crossbow, fish, ducks( geese?) .It would have been used as a funerary object to protect the deceased in the afterlife. I don't know why but I just love it. It doesn't photograph as well as it looks in person. Some of the figures look to be missing . In person you can see the fish on the bottom of the "lake" and I don't know... I just think it's neat. I chose this over the creepy painting of one of the Medici that follows you around the room I love or the fantastic tapestries, during an Art Appreciation class . We had to write about our favorite piece and I knew exactly what I was going to write about and I never do that. I just find this little tower fascinating. Long story short visit museums virtually right now and when you can go see your local ones!

    From what little I know of dragons in Chinese myth dragons are auspicious. I know that the emperor of China is traditionally associated with dragons.
