I usually end up with so many open that I start forgetting why I had them open in the first place. It's a convenient way to get back to work.

I started to read a TVtrope once, but I got bored half-way through and closed the tab.

That was my experience the first time I was there. I'm still a little disappointed that the list of things that have each trope are obviously incomplete, but I still like reading about different tropes. And besides, if it weren't for TVTropes I'd have never heard of the Bechdel Test.

I heard about the Bechdel test through Trisha, the other main writer on Gordon McAlpin's (Multiplex creator) movie blog, MovieMakeOut.com. It is definitely something I'd never heard/thought of before, but now I often go back to it. I support Bechdel positive movies, but not for the same vaguely feminist reasons that most do. I think that movies that "pass" are generally less manipulative and more original/quality. Or a "pass" at least makes me more want to see it than I might otherwise. Trisha probably mentions it every few months in regards to one movie or another, and it has thus entered my head more regularly and become a part of my movie vocabulary.

Less manipulative of whom?
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Emotionally manipulative. Of everybody, really, but particularly the more emotional among us.*

Inuit culture! I had my first Inuktitut class of the semester. It's in the First Nations House on campus and it is such a fucking cool place. There were about ten of us and we just hung in the lounge for three hours.
