Oh…Goop Lab is on Netflix

I’m not even tempted to watch a single second of it, but I can tell I’m going to be entertained by the people who suffer through it to criticize it.

Although I can see where I might find it good if I need an anger rush, although the state of the country is doing that for me right now.

You know, Netflix raised their prices last spring to “allow the company to invest in more original content”. If this is their idea of quality content, I’ll unsubscribe at the next price increase.

    “Anything natural can’t be bad for you”.
    OK, here’s a fine glass of arsenic water, with a strychnine chaser, they’re all natural.

    Still, there was one thing that was right, right before they drove into the sewage filled ditch, we are multi-dimensional beings. Otherwise, we’d be a singularity or a line, depending upon if one only has zero dimensions or only one.

    Adding netflix “come back” e-mails to my junk filter. That filter doesn’t drop them into a spam folder, it sends the offending message to the bit bucket.

    I wonder what Gwyneth Paltrow would say if there was a law passed saying that she could only receive ‘medical care’ that is advertised on her website. After all, she is claiming these things are good for you and not at all harmful.

    Le pharmicien, Olivier Bernard, has a review.
    Even those who do not read French can appreciate his appreciation a couple of the episodes: En résumé : 2 épisodes sont de la totale bullshit.

    The English version is here. http://www.thepharmafist.com/goop-lab/

    Bernard. does not seem to have quite the command of vitriol in English but he still does a good job.

    While the whole Goop thing makes me sad, I will admit that selling a candle named “Smells like my vagina” is genius, even if it doesn’t smell like her vagina, which I’m pretty sure it doesn’t. Personally, I’ll stick with the “Apple Crisp” one I got at the Oddities market. It was a lot less expensive and doesn’t draw a lot of questions from guests.

    About the whole “Karens” thing… There seems to be a cycle on the internet.
    1. Pick a semi-random group of people to make fun of.
    2. Some of those people are unhappy about being made fun of.
    3. Other people say the people who are being made of are a bunch of crybabies.
    4. Someone laborious explains that the group being made fun of are individuals, and are peoples’ mothers, friends, wives, daughters, and generally real human beings.
    5. Good-hearted people quit the teasing. Jerks continue.
    6. A new group is chosen to be mocked.

    Could we maybe skip the whole process this time?

    Given that the group in question is specifically focused on due to their harassing service workers, I don’t really see how “they’re individuals!” is at all a defense against criticizing them. All racists are individuals, should we stop calling them so in order to spare their feelings and recognize that they’re members of people’s families?
