Cleanliness is really next to godliness in this 1922 advertisement for Ivory Soap, where a priest provides the central image. Our latest show explores “cleanliness” in all its forms in American life - including a marketing gimmick that put Ivory Soap on the radar of the nation’s artists (and for more on the artist behind this ad, J.C. Leyendecker, see this fascinating profile). 
Take a listen to the show!

It took them hundreds of takes to finally get this shot, he could only manage all the lines and hit his marks after Greg Sistero gave him a water bottle to throw.

Tommy Wiseau talks like the bowls of the internet and this sometimes fills me with an intense amount of fear.

What’s amazing is that he WROTE every single line in the movie. Could not love The Room any more than I do.

"It does no good to think in any way negatively about yourself. Not even a little good. Besides, none of those thoughts were accurate anyway. Most of them were exaggerations, and some of them were completely “made up.” So tell yourself the truth about yourself: You are wonderful."

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

Amen

Modern family is the best
