No matter what children’s museum I go to, kids always seek me out and destroy me in hand puppet showdowns. I think they sense that I’m weak.

I am a voyageur now. (My telephone number will remain the same.)

TIFF: A Thing I Attended

Here are my TIFF 2014 power rankings. Y’know, cuz studios are quivering with anticipation to check out my HOT CINEMA TAKES. (“Toronto Moron Provides Boffo Box Office Insight!” - Variety)

I watched nine films this year. Sadly, none of these films were a soulcrushing Danish remake of Baby Geniuses, but I have my fingers crossed for next year.

1. The Guest (Grade: A)

2. The Editor (Grade: A)

3. Big Game (Grade: A-)

4. Who Am I - No System Is Safe (Grade: B+)

5. Tokyo Tribe (Grade: B+)

6. Goodnight Mommy (Grade: B+)

7. Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films (Grade: B+)

8. Tales Of The Grim Sleeper (Grade: B-)

9. The Dead Lands (Grade: C+)

It’s not really something I can grade, but I want to give an A+ shout out to the dude that stood next to me at the butter dispenser and giddily suggested that there could be piss in there. He was THRILLED to pass along that theory. BLESS HIS HEART!

Anonymous said: can surf teminate pregnancy

christiolson:

Like, as in surfing? The sport? Or is it a hip new drug that I’m too old to understand?

If it is surfing, I’m sure it’s possible. Hell, I know a girl who miscarried from going too hard on a trampoline. But in no way, shape or form is that the best way to go about ending a pregnancy. If you live somewhere with legal abortions, go to a doctor. If you live somewhere where you have to pay for abortions but have no money, most Planned Parenthoods will either have grants for women in your situation, or will work out payment plans. 

If you live in a place where abortion is illegal or completely inaccessible, here’s a link to a blog post I wrote previously on the subject of self-performed abortion. Link

Please remember that I’m not a doctor. Luckily, the people at https://www.womenonweb.org/ are doctors! They’re an amazing resource, tell you friends!

My wife has all sorts of exciting medical advice!
