  1. So I'm in the grocery store and I become overwhelmed with a childish sense of embarrassment and homophobia as I look into my shopping cart and realize that every item in my cart is shaped like a penis.

    Video Games- Mess Effect: Andromeda

    I love the new Far Cry 5 setting but I gotta see some extended gameplay. If it's still the exact same -open up the map via radio station and craft stuff with dead animals- I just can't do it. Also, youre a deputy sheriff. How is this war in Montana supposed to go down without homeland security and the national guard and 1000s of youtubers taking over??? Vice reporters??

    I hope it's like creepy religious cult stuff. Like Westboro Baptist Churchers.

    The Witcher on Netflix.

    Ian Anthony Dale actually looks a lot like how Geralt looks in the game W3. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/92/b0/8e/92b08e1a9b1093d8435fefd62443711b.jpg

    "My Family's Slave"

    Alex's wife with some insight on those 20 years and the accusation of Alex not trying to help. https://www.google.com/amp/people.com/human-interest/wife-writer-alex-tizon-family-secret-slave-speaks-out/amp/ Melissa says her late husband and his four siblings offered time and time again to take her back to the Philippines. “They tried so hard when they were old enough to help her get out of the situation she was in with their parents,” says Melissa. “They gave her ways to move in with them or help her get back to the Philippines, but at that stage in life she had so much devotion to Alex’s mom, that she always wanted to stay and it wasn’t until Alex’s mom died in 1999, that she was finally free. And when we gave her options again saying ‘You can live with any of the siblings or go back to Philippines, we’ll take care of you.’ She finally felt like she could take one of those options, so chose to live with Alex and I.”

    How old is Geralt in the books ? He looks like 50 in the game.

    DCEU: The Wings of Liberty Have Lost Some Feathers

    Well Well DC finally making something I'm interested in seeing besides Batman. http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/trailers/850671-wonder-woman-clip#/slide/1 Can't say I like the look of Wonder Woman , I pictured her to look much cooler in my head. But the fight scene is pretty badass and the cast is pretty stout. Also Lucy Davis from the office uk.

    "My Family's Slave"

    Here's Alex's daughter commenting. And many home photos of lola. https://www.google.com/amp/s/newsinfo.inquirer.net/897747/look-alex-tizons-family-shares-loving-memories-of-lola-2/amp "What makes her story so painful to read is that I remember Lola a little differently: I remember Lola smiling in her garden; wearing a floppy sunhat and slip-on sandals. I remember Lola watching her melodramatic Filipino soap operas and asking, “Why are they always crying?!” I remember Lola enthralled in her word-search puzzles. I remember walking into the house to always be greeted with, “Did you eat??” I remember seeing the joy on Lola’s face when she watched us devour her magical cooking. I remember Lola laughing hysterically at the most inappropriate times of a scary movie. I remember Lola reminding us again and again (and again) to put a jacket on. I remember Lola loving me, my sister, my parents, my aunts, uncles, cousins, and every single person that walked into our house with her whole heart. And it was a big heart. The best I’ve ever known, and (no doubt) ever will. I remember Lola as, for lack of a better word, an angel. To read this story makes my soul hurt. But it is a story that needed to be told. For my family, it goes without saying, but for others, it might not be so obvious: we loved Lola immensely. Endlessly. Today is a heavy day because not only am I remembering Lola, but I am remembering my father."

    "My Family's Slave"

    Interesting article about Alex's neice. One of the many children raised by Lola Eudocia. Seems many of the children raised by her had no clue that she was a slave. https://www.google.com/amp/sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/05/19/lola-slavery-story-alex-tizon-shocks-bay-area-relative/amp/ "Yeah, ‘slave’ doesn’t fit to me. She was our grandma,” she said. “Them finding out was probably a struggle of ‘We know that she came here under circumstances she couldn’t control. But she’s our mom. She raised us.’ So what do you do with that?” Martinez said. “And I think my uncle did the best that he could. He would be the first to admit it wasn’t enough.”

    "My Family's Slave"

    No one is above criticism here, even us readers we can still be doing more to stop slavery rather than selfishly living our lives or watching that show, or listening to that song, or etc etc we could be out preventing and stopping slavery. My issue is mainly with those accusing the author of romanticizing the situation or not seeming repentant enough for his own role in what happened. No one is coming out and saying it wasn't slavery. The freaking title is "our family slave", there's no sugar coating there on what he decided to call it. But I think understanding of the context of culture and history is in order before those fingers start pointing. Because the more of a grasp you can wrap your mind around it the less the authors role in the story becomes important. Because to me the author should be the last one on trial for this, and to mention an opinion of his guilt without this context to me just looks like virtue signaling at it's worst.

    "My Family's Slave"

    I'm sure guilt played it's part of course. Also love, confusion, cultural history, cultural clashing. And yes even prevention. I certainly didn't get a sense of him trying to portray himself as a hero surrounded by evil, nor as himself as evil either. Well where I grew up there were always rumors and stories about this happening with immigrants from the middle east. Where one guy would come over and start a business and send for his cousins or friends to come over and get unpaid slave labor from them. Very few of us ever said anything, the ones that did were not taken seriously and not much was done about it from what I heard. Maybe that's why I kneejerk jumped to Alex defense because it's a lot easier to chastise others for not being a superhero than it is to be one yourself.

    "My Family's Slave"

    Not how I read it. Unless it's in a non finger pointing way in that all of us can always do more than we do to help those in need. Reading his history his writing seems notorious for portraying the world as gray, rather than black and white. We don't know if he or none of the siblings tried to get her to come live with them or tried other things. Or how much money or lack of it played a part in the decisions. We just don't know, declaring that nothing haopened because it wasn't specifically mentioned in the article doesn't cut it for me. Just in my little research I discovered that Alex was married at least twice, that wasn't in the article either.

    Reboot Bug Now Infecting Television Shows

    I'm offended by your lack of respect for how great of a show Roseanne is. That reminds me, I thought Dan died of a heart attack on the show???
