Monster Community Pool – 9/10/2015

This is the dream.  A pool with a view of the mountains.

  • These two, amirite?
  • October is just around the corner.
  • Personal thought: I always thought butterbeer sounded disgusting.
  • Another excuse to keep eating cereal.

Well, my dream anyway…

    Speaking of October, are we doing Month of Scares again? Because literally every day I pass by an abandoned farm outbuilding and I would like to take a picture of it.

    I really thought your “these two” would be referring to these two: http://www.vox.com/2015/9/9/9275611/victorian-era-life

      The only people I want to see pretending to be Victorians are the Bowler family of 50 Elliscombe Road, London, amirite! Can I get a high five from my 1900 House nerds!??!

      • old man fatima says:

        I love historical reality TV so much! They need to get it all onto Netflix because I can’t be bothered to hunt for it, tho.

      Kelly wrote about that crazy pair yesterday. What the heck is with them? http://gawker.com/7-easy-steps-to-living-like-its-the-victorian-era-1729608684

      Why are these people?????? My only nice thought about this was, well, it’s great that they found each other. Then I thought, why make life so hard for yourselves? She empties an ice box twice a day — you don’t have to do that! Just buy a real freezer! Do they allow themselves to use modern medicine? I really want to support people’s rights to live how they want and be happy, but this is just insane! But then what kind of horrible monsters send them death threats? I hate everyone involved in this story!

        The thing is, for me that’s always been one of the perks or being a writer or reading historical fiction. You get to pretend like you live in a different time period for a while, but then you can close the book and go eat a Pop Tart when you’re hungry. This lady is a writer so just go write a damn book about it.

        • Right? Like, I love old-timey crap, but the whole point is that I can enjoy all the best parts without having to actually deal with old-timey hardships. Modern hardships are enough!

      • old man fatima says:

        If they were my neighbours, I would be pretty hostile towards them. Coal smog, fire hazards, and you just know they’re smug and judgey as hell. It’s hard not to have a strong negative reaction to these assholes, and I will go into every single recreation house and village that I pass. They’re totally my jam.

      Guys!! The Toast had a great response to this today!

    • I don’t have time to read this now, but does the woman not realize how horribly women were treated back then?

      • old man fatima says:

        She doesn’t seem to, but she does spend a bit of time lamenting how horribly and unfairly they are treated for having the courage to live their lives the way they want.

    I saw a commercial for the new season of Longmire yesterday, coming soon to Netflix, and it made me so happy! Imagine something you love being snatched away too soon, only to be revived in a way that will allow you to binge watch it over a weekend! If you haven’t seen Longmire, I urge you to watch the first episode to see if it’s your cup of tea. The guy who plays the sheriff is so convincing that I can’t imagine him playing any other role.

    In other TV news, did anyone watch that new reality show Home Free? I watched the finale last night and I was sobbing. The premise is that each week, several couples work together to renovate a house for a deserving family, for a shot at winning their dream home. They work to their breaking point, then at the end of the week one couple is eliminated and the rest drive away. But the twist is that the deserving family is the couple that got sent home that week! (The show reveals this immediately, this isn’t a spoiler.) Finally, a heart warming reality competition show! Everyone wins!

    There is a bar in NYC called Barcelona Bar where they do Harry Potter shots. Theres a whole costume and giant flame and a whole riggamarole (technical term) and even though you’re overpaying for the shot, the dramatics are totally worth it to a HP fan. I took my brother there and he was overjoyed.

    • Sota says:

      They do lots of other movie/tv themed shots too…if youre ever in the mood for a theatrical shot experience…thats the place.

    • martinmegz says:

      This sounds like an amazing place!

      One time I spent a day in Venice, Italy, wandering from bar to bar doing shots of flaming Sambuca. I got so drunk that I refused to get on the train back to Florence and my roommate and I got stranded in Venice for the night with no hotels available. We met some backpackers at a bar who tried to sneak us into their hostel, but we got caught and thrown out (probably because I was being too loud). Then we tried to sleep in the train station but we got kicked out. We were wandering the streets until we spotted an Israeli-run bakery that was starting the day’s baking at 3 am. They let us sit inside until morning and gave us kosher brownies. It took a full ten years for my friend to forgive me and agree that it was a funny experience.
