The Paul Lynde Halloween Special

When I worked at the video store we were straight up REQUIRED to only play horror movies or things that were at least somewhat spooky or scary or somehow Halloween-related in the store during the month of October. This is pretty tricky when you’re not supposed to play things that are rated R until after 10:00 p.m. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special was my go-to thing. As far as I’m concerned, it never gets old.

The best essay I’ve ever read about cooking.

I made her promise me she’d never make a pie, and she said not to worry, it would never happen. I think of her every time I make one and wonder if she was smart enough to keep her promise, or if somewhere, she is kneeling on a kitchen floor wiping up flour with a wet sponge, cursing because she’s hoping that her kids will finally give her the mothering experience she’s always wanted and knowing, with mounting rage, as the flour turns to paste under her fingernails, that they might love her but she is also just That Thing That Bought Us Our Phones.

"We cook to make ourselves indispensable and special. I’m not saying that every moment of the choice is insidious and underhanded. Certainly, some part of my mother enjoyed making pies, and probably, when she first learned, she loved it. But then pie-making became something to get to the other side of. The prize was not the pie, but being the wonderful person who had made the pie, and this seemed like a stressful situation as you could guarantee the existence of the pie, but not of sufficient praise and attention as to have made the pie worth creating."

Powerful article, spelling out something that obviously needs spelling out, at least for some men. Men who define themselves primarily against other men are by no means immune from being awful to women - and in fact (as the grim examples in this piece show) will find different ways to police women, in the apparent knowledge that maintaining the identity of the in-group will usually prove more important than ensuring the safety of people within it.

(And this is also, obviously, true of men - and let’s face it, I am one of these men - who enjoy feeling on some level more virtuous/humane/smart etc than alt-bros, tech-bros, dawk-bros etc. Negative self-definition is probably inevitable, even useful and healthy to some degree, but in itself it doesn’t make you a better person to the people around you.)

It’s like the author of this article peered into my soul, y’all. I have been having a long ongoing conversation lately with my friend H about this exact phenomenon in the Austin music scene but I have also seen it in activism, academia, various subsets of “geek culture,” etc. 

Quote
"Psychologists have found that people’s belief in a just world helps explain how they react to innocent victims of negative life circumstances. People become cognitively frustrated when presented with stories of victims who suffer through little fault of their own. They can deal with this frustration in two ways: they can conclude that the world is an unjust place, or they can decide that the victim is somehow to blame. Most people reconcile their psychological distress by blaming the victim. Even when we know that suffering is undeserved, it is psychologically easier to blame the victim rather than give up the idea that the world is basically fair."

Yup. Belief in a just world is a good predictor of certain kinds of victim-blaming beliefs (e.g. rape myth acceptance).

Just thinkin about Betty

Seeing Betty Boop in such strenuous poses makes me think of Mae Questel (the original voice of Betty, as well as Olive Oyl and Swee&#8217;Pea in the Popeye cartoons) doing yoga and other exercises in one of my favorite Jerry Lewis movies, It&#8217;s Only Money.
