So if you listened to yesterday’s Daily Roundup, you heard that I took my niece to see the Barbie movie. I think maybe my thoughts on it came across a little harsh. I didn’t hate it by any means. I didn’t even dislike it. I just thought it was a little corny and weird and bizarre. However, I also acknowledge, not being someone who played with dolls growing up, not being female, and not having a daughter, also played a role in my thoughts on the movie. It didn’t hit me that I think it will hit some people who fit into any of those three categories. Because before it was released this weekend, the plot details hadn’t really leaked out. Nobody knew what the hell to expect. And to draw a $155 million this weekend and get rave reviews like it did, clearly it did something right. And I see that side of it, but moreso, if you’re female or you owned a Barbie growing up. It really does have a good message behind it, and no, it’s nothing political as some are making it out to be. It’s an enjoyable 90 minutes or so with colorful scenes, some good music/dance numbers, funny lines, and overall positive message. If you have a daughter, I’d absolutely take her to see it.

So this episode lastly confirmed how the entire breakdown went with the New Orleans date. My screwup was assuming the date I used to be informed occurred between Joey and Dotun’s was a 1-on-1. I knew there was a date there, I knew it was a Bayou date, and I knew there was a bunch date with no rose ceremony this episode. As a result of they’d at all times finished three 1-on-1’s and a 3 particular person group date earlier than hometowns on the Bachelorette pre-pandemic, and I figured this was the identical as soon as I came upon there 4 dates in New Orleans. Hell, I feel even when I knew there was a 2-on-1, I wouldn’t have put Sean and Tanner on it simply because that was a primary with each staying, but not being given a rose. I’d’ve assumed certainly one of them was on it, and the opposite was Xavier or Aaron, with that man getting the rose. I can stay with that mistake. At the very least I knew I wasn’t going loopy with the Bayou date, a bunch date, and no rose ceremony and proud that data wasn’t unsuitable.
When you’re studying this, it is perhaps too late because it was first talked about in my podcast a pair hrs in the past when it went up, however, a reader is promoting her Taylor Swift tickets and desires my assist. They’re for subsequent Thursday’s present at Sofi Stadium in LA. Tickets are in Part 543, Row 8, Seats 14-15. They’re promoting them at face worth – $1300 every, so $2600 whole. It might be a straight Ticketmaster switch after you pay them. I’ve verified the tickets, this particular person was at my social gathering this yr so it’s not an entire stranger. I do know the worth appears excessive for prime stage seats, however go on Stub Hub or Ticketmaster now and take a look at prime stage seating proper now. That is the most affordable that’s on the market. She paid greater than $1300 for them whole (one other display screen shot she despatched me), however is okay with consuming the taxes and costs she paid on prime of those, she simply must promote them as a result of one thing that got here up and now she will be able to’t attend. E mail me at email@example.com provided that you’re significantly . I’ll put you in contact together with her and take it from there. It’s first come, first serve.
Display screen time breakdown for episode 5 is as follows. I suppose it is sensible that Sean bought probably the most time contemplating how a lot he was freaking out about not getting time. Humorous how that works:
