There seems to be a point of poor return with "luxury" things, though. Like, the cheap stuff breaks easily, and isn't worth repairing. The mid-to-highish priced things last pretty well, not ridiculously expensive to fix because it lasts. The really high-end stuff doesn't wear that well, and is ridiculously expensive… » 10/30/14 11:58pm Yesterday 11:58pm

Just buy them through Amazon on your computer. They'll be saved with your Amazon account/cloud and show up as purchased when you later install them on your Android device so you get the deal. (You can also use this trick to nab Amazon apps that you might want in the future but don't want to install on your… » 10/30/14 2:59pm Yesterday 2:59pm

The problem is that most reality tv, including their show, is not the same as a film or PBS documentary. TLC would catch a world of shit for continuing to attempt to profit off the family by airing the show; all the advertisers would almost certainly pull out (possibly from everything on the network, not just that… » 10/29/14 9:28pm Wednesday 9:28pm

I think you'll find with most of these titles (and all the other stuff that disappears from Netflix) that what happens is that they either pop up on one of the other streaming sites (Hulu, Amazon) or on one of the movie channels (HBO, Showtime or non-premium cable) that has bought the rights for a period — most of the… » 10/29/14 6:05pm Wednesday 6:05pm

Not to defend this piece of shit, but she had to have been paid at least as much as her kids to appear on their reality show. TLC has to pay all of them, individually. So, she does have money of her own (but maybe not buying cars and houses for pedophiles money). » 10/29/14 3:58pm Wednesday 3:58pm

Oh, the spectre lingers longer than that. My birthday is January 12th, and my family still tried to foist the dreaded "combination gift" (i.e. that shitty thing they bought at a Post-Christmas clearance sale for less than they would have spent combined on either a Christmas or birthday gift for anyone else) off on me… » 10/29/14 1:23am Wednesday 1:23am

Not once during her tireless search for Glenn did she ever say even a passing word about Beth, dead or alive. Her father, yes. When Sasha mentioned her own brother being missing/dead, Maggie never said anything about Beth. When Daryl told Maggie about Beth in the boxcar, we hear her ask if she's alive, Daryl says yes,… » 10/27/14 7:14pm Monday 7:14pm

Oh, yes, tonight one of them tweeted that they "wouldn't stop until every single journo within three degrees of separation of Gawker is an unhirable pariah." (I don't know how to embed tweets, but check Erin Gloria Ryan's feed.) As many present and former Gawker writers point out, this encompasses pretty much every… » 10/26/14 10:37pm Sunday 10:37pm
