    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    Omg, I totally 100% forgot about this! I'm amazed at how funny and smart we are lol! But yeah this wasn't the one I was specifically thinking of but I do remember now thinking the same thing about that caller lol!

    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    It did happen to me, but I can't remember what episode it was for anymore. I only remember hearing the phone call and thinking, "That's literally word for word what I commented on the boards..." I came onto the minisode thread and complained a bit (classic taylor) and it seemed like they took notice and quit doing calls for C&Os for a while. Alas, here we are again and the same shit is still happening.

    Some Like It Hot

    I would also like to add that everyone should check out Love, Marilyn. It's an HBO Doc that took her journals and letters and had actors and actresses read them out paired with interviews from those alive that knew her. It's beautifully done.

    Some Like It Hot

    Oh my god that's so beautiful though! I truly went back and forth about something simple vs a realistic portrait but honestly there's this tattoo artist that does some of the best portrait work I've ever seen. So I've decided to save my money to travel to him!

    Some Like It Hot

    So I find it very interesting that Marilyn found her character to be a little on the dumb side when faced with these two men in drag, because when I watched this movie for the first time I was definitely seeing it through a modern lens and my first thought was, "Oh wow! This girl is so progressive that she's honestly like well these women say they're women so they're women!" That partnered with that brilliant final line, "Nobody's perfect," really planted this as an incredibly modern tale and I believe that's what makes it land and hold up over time. Clearly I don't think that's what they were exactly going for, but hell what a good outcome.

    Some Like It Hot

    I haven't been on the Unspooled forum in far too long, but I am happy to come back as a resident Marilyn Monroe stan, and as someone who extremely protective of her. Literally I came in to this week's episode with arms up ready to fight for her, but obviously Amy is a huge fan of hers as well, and a ginormous Gentlemen Prefer Blondes fan like me, and I was very happy to hear them properly talk about her fragile state in this period of her life as well as her lack of professionalism. Continuously I will go back and forth between my thought process of this movie because I know what it's like to have clinical depression and anxiety and to have people completely ignore it, and we would all be remiss to overlook that she did suffer from mental illness that had not been properly diagnosed. So I can't imagine the trauma her own brain was putting her through, and to add into that the emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Arthur Miller. On that note specifically, I know also as well as him genuinely blaming her for his lack of muse, he also wrote TERRIBLE things about her in his journals that she later found and had read. I can't remember much, but I do remember the bulk of it being how Arthur thought she was genuinely too stupid to even be around at some point. Anyway, back on to this movie. I do think that even when you suffer from mental illness there is a level of having to show up for your life in place, which I imagine was extremely amplified more in the 1950s. It's completely understandable without the support that most of us get these days that she was breaking down. Even with therapy I just can't imagine things were as good back then as they are now. Yet, I'm still torn on justifying how late she was and how much she missed. In my work I deal with a lot of movie stills for cable promotional images. It's basically like how Netflix chooses an image from a movie to highlight when you pause or whatever lol. Well I was going through the ones we have for Some Like it Hot at one point, and I was struck by a handful that we had that had been labeled as Marilyn Monroe. I know what this woman looks like better than anyone, and the woman that was in these photos was indeed NOT Marilyn Monroe. I literally stared at them for so long being like, "Is my brain messing with me, or is this not her?" And it hit me... they went ahead and did these promotional photos with a stand in and there you have Jack Lemon, Tony Curtis, and Nameless Blonde Stand In taking the official images for this movie. Clearly at some point they did get Marilyn in for some solo photos because she does show up at some point in our folder of images, but they must have taken the negatives from that and did some old fashioned style Photoshop to get Marilyn's head there. I have more points I would love to talk about movie-wise, but I really wanted to start this off talking about Marilyn because I genuinely love her so much. I've been planning on a Marilyn tattoo for quite some time, and I want it done absolutely the best it could possibly be so I gotta start saving a tooon of money for it lol.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    @Smigg. & @GrahamS. I want to honestly thank the both of you for opening up to us all. I know personally how hard it is to even talk about this, but y'all are doing a good thing (much better than this fucking movie) and we're all here with y'all. My experiences with sexual assault and harassment started when I was just 11 years old, and has continued well into my 20s, so I seriously want to thank y'all for sharing today. To make an incredibly dark subject light again because I'm sure none of us can deal without trying to make each other laugh I present this.

    Episode 222.5 - Minisode 222.5

    I finally got to listen to June's WTF episode with Marc Maron and she's genuinely just the most lovely person and I love hearing more in depth stories about her growing up, going to NYU with Casey, experiencing 9/11 in the middle of NYC, meeting Paul, and describing their kids' personalities. This was the interview I've been dying to hear!!! Plus June called out some unconscious bias that Marc laid out and it gave me life to hear her ask, "Would you ask Paul that same question?" and listen as Marc goes oh shit u right watch me back peddle.

    I don't think it's ever happened in earnest, but Paul F Tompkins did turn it into a bit during the After Earth episode I believe lol.

    Episode 221. The Hottie and the Nottie

    It is very sad that the only two positive representations of Albinism that we can all think of is an animated man and a CGI gorilla.

    Episode 221. The Hottie and the Nottie

    I wish this part had made it into Sofia's movie. I would've loved to have watched Emma Watson and Leslie Mann recreate this scene lol.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I'm here to bat at your generalizations, Cameron My mom definitely has a bunch of my ballet performances on VHS but definitely same cause I think she finally ditched the VCR. She is the kind of person that will hold onto shit until it legitimately breaks and we had one of those giant box TVs with a VCR included until I got back from college lol.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I've kept many VHS tapes because of nostalgia and the fact that many of the Disney ones aren't the same as they were on VHS. Too many added scenes or things taken out but I wanna at least have SOMETHING that is OG. I still also have Titanic because I need my future children to understand the hardship of getting to the climax of the movie and it cutting out and you having to rewind the first tape before getting to the second half of the movie lmao.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    Because I'm an aesthetic bitch I have to organize all my physical media by the cover color. My DVD shelf looks like a rainbow and it makes me very very happy. No one else usually goes to my shelf to find specific things, but I know where everything is because I've memorized these DVD covers so that's all that matters to me. I put my books up by genre and keeping the series together, but someday I may switch that to colors as well.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I genuinely thought that Paul was going to rip me apart because of my Chest Math, but to hear him say I'm right and then blame Nate well... That was pretty amazing lol!

    Hide and Seek (2005)

    If it makes you feel better, that's not what's happening in this movie.
  23. I assume she's an aunt the same way I'm an aunt to my best friends' babies. Because she seems to not only not know who her mother is but she's never met a single person from Luke's side of the family until the very end of the film. This poor girl has had her entire family kept secret from her so I'm really just guessing that this "aunt" is a really good and old friend of Luke's that he trusts enough to consider family.
  24. Thanks I finally got Guy on a Buffalo out of my head after 9 years and you've just brought it back. In return I present a Mothman song to the tune of YMCA.

    Hide and Seek (2005)

    I saw this in theaters and had to sneak in because my friends and I were all 15 and had no idea this was rated R (I guess the suicide made it rated R?) and it was stupid then and I literally just happened to catch it on TV this past weekend and it's still stupid. No one in this movie makes a good decision. @GrahamS. it's pretty exploitative about mental illness throughout the whole thing. Very 2005 mindset. Doesn't hold up well AT ALL, but nothing seems to be as gruesome as the suicide, but that's just in my view of it.
