Mrs. Doubtfire had some pretty decent gay representation for it's time, in all honesty. The couple wasn't mocked or made to appear wrong or gross, there was no overt "ew icky" or "no homo" bullshit like so many other movies tend to do. Him having a gay relative in a loving relationship with another man, and him treating them both like regular people was honestly quite nice. At least from what I remember.

There was some early 90s cartoon show that I used to watch, the only thing I remember about it at all was one episode had the "man in a dress to trick the male protagonist" garbage that was so prevalent back then. The thing that got seared into my brain is the use of the word "sexy" in the show. I remember absolutely nothing else about it. Just being shocked at the use of the word by the villain to describe how he was going to fool the main character by dressing like a woman. I don't remember the name of the show, the characters, any other episodes.

It was not Johnny Bravo though, this predates that by a lot.

The only thing I know about Gundam aside from the giant transforming statue is the Yamata department store in Ikebukuro in Tokyo has an entire floor dedicated to Gundam



We were shopping for new headphones for my husband and went to see it because of the sign in the elevator

Watched Framing Britney Spears and the way the media handled her did not age well. There's a clip from a talentshow when she was a little girl and the old rear end host asks her if he can be her boyfriend.

I saw the clip from an interview where they played a video of a lady saying she wanted to shoot Britney in the head then asked her if she still felt she was a good role model. There's no way she wasn't deeply traumatized by what they did to her. It's so depressing.

I grew up in a small town on the Canadian prairie and the principal used to hit kids with rulers and belts when I was in elementary school. If you were REALLY bad you got the belt on your bare rear end. This was not questioned by other adults either. Teachers were okay with it, parents were okay with it. I'd go home and mention someone from my class was sent to the office and got the belt. And I'm not even 40 yet. I think that poo poo died in cities a number of years earlier, at least near where I was.

The oldest goldfish on record lived to age 50.

Amazing what will happen when you nurture an animal instead of forcing it to live in a tiny prison prison, drinking it's own piss and poo poo 24/7

Bit late, but I have an uncanny knack for recognizing the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Way more than half of movies with mountain scenery that isn't CGI is filmed here.

Except one hilarious exception. Wolverine: Origins took place in Canada, but they filmed it in New Zealand. We don't have fern trees here. As a major natural history nerd, that was more jarring to me than any familiar mountain they claim is in Wyoming.
