Why Mulder and Scully Not Living Together is Actually a Good Thing… For Now… By: Leane Pupo
“We can tell you that they’re not living together…” are words that nearly broke every shippers heart today. Take heart that this is not as bad as you may think. In fact, look for consolation in “frustrated lovers Mulder and Scully” a couple of lines before. Why? Because this does not mean they are not seeing each other.
Let’s take a step back and review why not living together, may truly be the best thing for their successful future as a couple:
The X-Files has always been a Sci-Fi Drama above all else. The Unresolved Sexual Tension (or UST) between the two star characters is one of the many driving forces. As Chris Charter has said, Mulder loves Scully and Scully loves Mulder. This is undeniable and what has held the X-Files together. I mean, would you go to Antarctica for a co-worker?
However, a few things have always been very clear. Mulder is a dark man that can easily fall into a dark place. Scully is a rock. While we can see Scully rise and rise, it is not as simple for Fox Mulder. Continue reading →
For decades he has cried wolf, teasing and prodding a media hungry for his arrival. As of 6/16/2015 Donald Trump the man, the myth, the legend himself has decided to step into the circus that will be the Republican primary. His announcement designed to steal the “Bush Thunder” was chock full of Reaganisms all the way down to his campaign slogan. Trump was meandering and controversial and naturally banking on something very
important the stupidity and lack of political knowledge particularly found among those who Donald chump will be voting in the Republican primary? Can the “Donald” win this primary? Many scoff at the idea, but then again an actor can’t be elected President twice right? What about a semi-illiterate cowboy? This can’t happen this is America right? Uh oh….. Continue reading →
“ What do I stand for?” most Nights I don’t know anymore?” A lyric from popular song but aptly describes Conservative ideology and outlook. What exactly does it mean to be a Conservative? What exactly is one trying to conserve? They claim to be holding to “tradition”, “family values”,”God” etc. they are inspired by a mix of faith and patriotism that yields an ugly sound and fury. But when they look in a mirror what exactly do Conservatives stand for?
Tradition, what tradition does a conservative embrace. A tradition of White Protestant Males wielding power? A tradition were the black man is in chains, women are subjugated, and the Natives of the land are being herded into reservations? Do we strive to uphold special traditions like hate speech and having the ability to speak whatever comes to mind about any race, gender, sex, etc. Because of course the truth of the matter is that it would not be free speech if it is not demeaning or hateful. To a conservative right to openly hate anyone that is slightly different is part of the overall Continue reading →
Should the indicted run for office? Rick Perry has entered the fray. The man famously known for not knowing which government agency he would abolish, and who has been going through a bit of “legal trouble” has officially entered the presidential race. While this entry into the race does not come to a surprise to many the fact that he is currently still trying to fight an indictment is a bit shocking. How can a Nation that is supposed to be a model for the world allow an candidate not just run for political office but to run for the Presidency of the United States? What happened to morality and the rule of law? Does this not apply evenly?
Rick Perry is still under indictment and this is a fact. However despite this he is still running for office. The incredible thing is that most of the corporate media seems to be mum on this inconvenient truth. Yet this is something that the people of this Nation should be hammering on him a lot harder. If any minority in this nation would even consider running for dog catcher they would be immediately disqualified from pursuing any form of elected office. Yet how is rick Perry justified in even making this attempt? The savvy Conservative will off course scream Continue reading →
Zealotry, it is a nasty little mindset which unfortunately infects too many people in our society. Many of history’s darkest moments are a byproduct of this mode of thinking, like the Inquisition, Holocaust, etc.. This type of behavior is also very much a feature of right-wing conservative idealism. More often than not those of a right-wing bent will zealously strike after some sort of perceived enemy or abomination, like, gays, abortion, blacks, atheists, etc.. and they will conjure up images of a self righteous indignant Crusade. However sadly more often than not such an undertaking betrays dark skeletons hidden in the darkest of closets, eventually these individuals will unveil their true nature and the world will see that which they lash out the most is nothing more than a crusade based on a sense of guilt for their own personal moral failings
At 19 and counting the Duggars have been a culture phenomenon of mass reproduction. In a household full of Jesus and devoid of birth control the Continue reading →
I have three children and decided breastfeeding was the best choice for my family. I know that there are many reasons women will choose not to breastfeed, or how long they will. I do highly recommend giving it a try and I know that science has backed up the benefits of breastfeeding time and time again. After all, it is the natural choice.
What I am more interested now is how different my 3 breastfeeding experiences have been. My oldest son was born in 2006 and I remember reading to breastfeed until your child is at least 6 months. At the 6 months mark, I stopped. He never complained. It was as if “out of sight, out of mind.” Continue reading →
Jeb Bush, has still not declared his candidacy however the sins of his brother may become a liability for his political run. Recently the Ghost of Bush past is haunting Jeb in two embarrassing events that will hurt. In one Jeb Bush in a misguided attempt to show brotherly affection openly states that like his bother he would have also thrown our Nation into a useless and expensive war. Shortly after making such a bold declarative statement he realizes that he made a mistake and tries to play it off with the ever popular “I misheard”. Jeb Bush knows that he has made a major misstep as the whole point of his campaign is to be the “other Bush” a compassionate moderate with no Neocon ambition, but this misstep would not be the end of his recent brushes with public embarrass
Jeb Bush knows that gaining the support of younger voters is important, however in an America were younger voters are ultimately more politically progressive, she confronts good ol Jeb and states that his brother George w. Bush created ISIS. While this may seem like the words of an uninformed youngster who does not understand the political nuances and complex foreign policy, however the misinformed youngster was not far form the truth. ISIS, is essentially an Continue reading →
I can’t take it anymore. I am an extreme X-Files fan. The show is brilliant and the actors are amazing. There is no greater pair than Mulder and Scully. However, the serious internet explosion, comments, and questions have lead me to write this.
First of all, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are not Mulder and Scully. Everyone that is trolling them and wanting them to hook up should understand this. Do I feel they have a very interesting bond? Yeah. Has it matured over the years? Sure. Do I think they may hook up? Why not. The point is, they are not fictional characters but real people. What they do on their own time is very different than what is written for them. Just like their personalities. Sorry if I burst some bubbles. The rumors that they “hate” each other in “real-life” are also false. They have an email relationship and see each other during events a couple times a year. Both these statement came from the actors!
With the newest chapter on the horizon, The X-Files Reboot due to air January 24th, 2016, there has already been much hype. Add the fact that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson kissed (twice) during an encore at his show in the Cutting Room (NYC) on Tuesday (5-12-2015), a gig to promote his debut album “Hell or High water,” and fandom is squealing everywhere.

Am I the only one that finds it ridiculous that it is a “Feminist” that is whining, crying, and bitching? As far as I know, those are very negative traits that are stereotyped as being “female.”
I have come to defend the Avengers for those claiming they are anti-female. I have also come to make some bold statements about people, in general.
“All men (and women), are created equal” is a load of crap. If you believe this, you are in complete denial, naïve, or a moron. This is the reason communism is prettier on paper and not easy in the “real-world.” I WISH we were all equal. We are not. There are biological differences in not only men and women, but in physical traits, and mental structures among race and ethnicity, too. There is also mental illness and disease to account for.

A white woman, black man, and white man enter the 2016 presidential race who is the progressive?
The response may shock many at first glance, (naturally those who understand politics are not surprised), however to the average American the answer maybe quite shocking with a twist of irony. Bernie Sanders the whitest and oldest of all the 2016 presidential candidates is also the standard bearer for the idea of progress. Meanwhile the white woman and black man represent some of the most reactionary political views akin to something found in a more misbegotten and savage era. This is why politics and life in general is so ironic.
Last week’s announcement of a Bernie Sanders presidential run has taken social media by storm (even some traditional media outlets have weighed in). His candidacy has raised a large amount of money from small donors and is basically showcasing a progressive platform which is exiting the every day average American. The source of this Continue reading →
