  1. On The Importance Of Leslie Knope, Friendship, and Feminism

    And waffles. Don't forget waffles.

    There are some things that I will defend with my life about Parks and Recreation: that Donna Meagle is an inspiration for all women; that the Leslie/Ann friendship is unsinkable and beautiful like a butterfly; that April Ludgate was the best thing that could have possibly happened to Andy Dwyer. Parks and Rec ended less than a week ago and I can safely say it was one of the best series finales in television history.

  8. Dan Aykroyd Says He’s “Delighted” by the Female Ghostbusters; Take That, Haters

    But what about Feig's plans to destroy all evidence of the original's existence? Or this Pandera Ring thing people keep mentioning?!

    You know what I like about the upcoming Ghostbusters movie? (Aside from its great representation and stellar cast, that is.) I love that, while it's exciting to hear that original Ghostbuster and co-writer of the 1984 film Dan Aykroyd is down with some lady-busters, at this point it also doesn't really matter what he or any other dude thinks.
