Fellow parents, please be careful. You will not believe what I have just discovered. Selena Gomez’s Naturally is about sex and/or male genitalia. I know, I know. You think I’m one of those paranoid parents, but hear me out. When I bought Kiss & Tell for my daughter, I was a little skeptical of the […]

Now that we have reached the end of Episode IV, I have updated the power rankings for the top characters. Darth Vader (1-1-2) (previous rank: 1): I know he had a last second to defeat to Solo this week, but I still have a lot of faith in that offense. Force-chokes? Come on, it’s just […]
