This fascinating article about what really goes on when you're a parent. (Spoiler: it ain't pretty.)
Cathy Lorax's amazing series "Film Diary," in which she recreates pivotal scenes from a wide range of movies. It's really fun to click through and see which movies you recognize.*

So, in honor of Ms. Lorax's genius, let's play a little game of "Guess the Movie from the Pivotal Scene," shall we? I don't think we can ever expect to see that name on the outside of a Milton Bradley box any time soon, so my wee little blog will have to suffice for now:
#1: Two boys race against each other in a filthy motel swimming pool.
#2: He pushes broken glass on the ground out of her way with his foot.
#3: A man sees a stranger crying in a theater.
#4: They find a dead body in the freezer next to the ice cream.
#5: A man moves into a familiar apartment, and puts his cigarettes on the shelf over his bed.
#6: A man gets something in his eye, then tells his daughter that he loves her very much.
#7: He watches her put money into a cookie tin.
#8: He fetches her a pitcher. (This one is so easy-peasy, I shouldn't even include a picture, but I will be kind.)
*She also painted a fascinating series studying Mia Farrow's costumes in Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby-- a film I still haven't developed the courage to watch.
