“Sister Wives”: The Netflix reviews

Or: A welcome distraction from academic stress and self-inflicted heartbreak.




A Con Man and a Pedophile: 2 out of 5 stars
This show is like a train wreck and I want to stop watching, but I can’t. Wives whine and cry a lot and Robyn is SO ANNOYING and needy, I don’t like her! Kody is not the stud (more of a really immature dork) he thinks he is and it’s selfish for all of them to keep breeding and not be able give their children the time, attention and support. How can they afford to offer each child college? Braces? Clothes? Health Insurance? They are exploiting their lifestyle and religion for money and they will lose the fancy homes when the show is canceled. This is brainwashing at its finest. Joseph Smith was a con man and a pedophile, read up on the history of their ‘made up’ religion that started in the 1800’s, it’s ridiculous. Kody and his brood barely even practice ‘religion’ and only subscribe to it so they can justify a kinky way of living. And, what is wrong with the women, knowing your man is swapping fluids nightly and what about diseases? I feel sorry for the kids facing judgment and ridicule throughout their lives. Meri can’t work? Robyn is doodling jewelry on a note pad? Janelle and Christine have the most sense and seem to welcome hard work.

Season 3: 5 out of 5 stars
SEASON 3 SEASON 3 SEASON 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only watch Netflix and would LOVE LOVE LOVE if Netflix could keep up with me.

A Hands-On Husband: 5 out of 5 stars
I personally think that this show and their way of life is absolutely wonderful. They are one big happy family. Maybe my emotions are getting in the way and my age but I absolutely loved this show, could not stop watching it. I did not know that there were different kinds of polygamy and I doubt that a lot of people know this. All I have ever seen is where it is like a cult and the leaders were cruel to the women and female children. Kody to me seems like a wonderful husband and father to everybody. When was married I had two children and as absent husband. My ex never once showed me what Kody takes time to show his wives. He never took me on a date, he never acknowledged any holidays with us. I turned out to be a very bitter woman – hence, the emotion part, he never even went anywhere with me and my kids. And that is how I think of my children as mine because even though I stayed with him for 25 years (I stayed until my children were grown and on their own) I raised my kids and sometimes when I think I did wrong not leaving they look at me and tell me (Mom, how do you think we turned out so well? They have wonderful families with both a Mother and a Father.) I left when my children left to live their lives as I had always planned. One reason I stayed was financially. I has no money even though I worked I did not make that much to support two children on my own. Their father did give me money for them whenever I said they needed this or that – however – I personally had nothing. I wore safety pins in my clothes and my pants were so shiny in the butt area from being worn so much. So, as you can summarize I think Kody is a wonderful person and the wives all help each other out no matter what the situation. I absolutely loved this show and hope there are more coming. I hope this helps whoever needs help. Thank you P.S. My son is a hands-on husband and father.

All Messed Up: 5 out of 5 stars
Season 4’s episodes are all messed up and out of order. Also the last one is missing entirely. the show is great id like to see the last episode.

Scholarly Credentials: 4 out of 5 stars
Although I have Scholarly credentials, my accolades for the comming out of this family has been scrutinised. Just because they are NOT Christian, does not mean they are not covered by the constitution. The constitution covers ALL religious groups, even Satanists, so why not old world judaists, which is what polygiamists really are. You may as well say you cannot accept a Jew in America, as to not accept a Polygamist. Granted modern day orthodox Jews do not accept polygamy. But Polygamy did start in ancient Jewish customs, and was widely accepted by many other cultures. Now when you talk about Christianity, the Christ, JESUS, hisself, said a man must be a husband of one wife, if he were to be recognized in the congregation. But that was not recognized by Jews, who chose to split their religion because most did not want to accept Christ Jesus despite all the prophecisies that were fortold that came true. The point is, while you may believe this family may be practicing false religious practices or not, it is up to GOD, not us to determine. In the mean time, we do our best to educate, and love our fellow man, NOT judge!!!!!!!Give them the information, and let them choose what they will, it is them who experience the SUPREME justice, as Paul said, as far as it concerns You be peable with ALL MEN!

Messed Up…Messed Up: 5 out of 5 stars
Is anyone else’s season 4 messed up. Season 4 is season 3 and the episodes are messed up.

A Slippery Slope: 4 out of 5 stars
This is America. Our Ancestors moved here to escape the persecution’s imposed by tyrant’s all across the globe. When the tyrants followed us here the first time it took the revolutionary war to beat them back. It saddens me that those same tyrannical ideas have once again permeated our society. Freedom isn’t about majority rule as dictated by the form of government we all call Democracy. Our Fore-bearers hated Democracy. Freedom’s roots were born in the form of a Constitutional Republic which states that 99% of the people can’t take away the rights of the 1%. America is a Republic not a Democracy. Unfortunately we haven’t done a very good job of teaching that concept to our children. We only need to recite the pledge of allegiance to quickly remind ourselves of who we are and where we came from. The Communist, Socialist, and fascist elements within our government would just as soon keep us all brainwashed, ignorant and fighting amongst ourselves. I think this program is not only fabulous but useful because it challenges us to practice our foundational beliefs of tolerance and respect for other people’s lifestyle choices. If we don’t Vehemently uphold the freedom’s of those in whom we disagree with the same passion and commitment we value our own ideals then ultimately all our freedoms are in jeopardy. Until very recently, this has been a widely accepted concept that has sustained us since the birth of our constitution. If we fail to recognize the slippery slope we’ve been heading down and continue on our present course then America will no longer be the land of the free and home of the brave. We’ll be just another tyrant government that everyone wants to flee. God help us and God help this family who’s only crime is the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness…

EXCEPT MY MAN: 2 out of 5 stars
What is up with Robyn and the constant herpes cold sores on her lips!!?? I have only watched random bits and pieces but by the end of Season 4 all the wives want their own huge house on a cul-de-sac in Vegas. Wow. Not too much pressure!! The whole premise of polygamy is odd to me and my personal opinion is you have to be born into it and grow up with it to truly understand it and want it as a lifestyle. I am a very giving person, I share anything….EXCEPT MY MAN.

Women’s Natural Motivation: 5 out of 5 stars
This show reveals how easy it is to exploits women’s natural motivation to bear children and brainwash them into thinking sharing a husband is part of god’s divine principle.

Good Show Great to Watch: 5 out of 5 stars
good show great to watch i would recommend to my friends there not fake love love it,s great thats it,s on netflix now



Today I rebegin the process of actually writing in this blog, one of my second-year-new-me aspirations. Among others:

-bathing slightly more regularly
-cleaning the catbox more regularly
-drinking Borgio less regularly
-firmly drawing the line at 5 English clubs
-wearing heels to work, even in the muddymuds
-not writing any more mean stuff on this blog

Also today: I saw someone, while dressed to the Mongolian nines, floss her teeth with her hair.

A brief tour of some Mongolian music videos

To begin, I should point out that Mongolians exhibit a great amount of love and respect for their mothers. Eej births you, Eej makes your boiled tea, Baby Camel cries golden tears for Camel Eej who never comes home. As a result, in any time of great agitation, where an English speaker might cry for “my God,” a Mongolian will call for “Eeje”.
Like for example when you’re one of three women dressed in baby costumes, hanging out in a shack, gyrating on a bound and blindfolded man.

Not only is this video great because it is about Naadam, the most fun and least socially stressful of all Mongolian holidays, but because of the G.D. costumes. Check out them furs! This only serves to strengthen my intentions of buying multiple sets of dog hair shorts and shoulder pads to sport upon my return to the US. I don’t know about those zebra stripes though. Step it up, Nara.

For balance, a song about the most socially stressful Mongolian holiday.

Let’s use this video to meditate on the particular hotness possessed by Mongolian men. Mean eyebrows! Pointy snarly teeth! Futuristic silvery Chinggis Khan vest! Ignore the fur coat parts, and Amraa. Shoo, Amraa! Take your mismatched lipstick and dye job right up on out of here.

This video is close to my heart because it is the song my duu (younger sibling) Temujin would listen to when he pooped. No Anemone, no pooping.

Anemone, for the curious, is the end result of the Mongolian “Making the Band.” This one’s about your Mom’s birthday.

This song’s called “Hello, Mom.” Youtube comments include: “nice song” and “really nice song.”

And to be fair, this one’s for Pops. Less production value, more likely to be seen on the UB bus. Just like your Dad.

And that concludes this session of Mongolian Music videos.

M22 T-shirt Designs: A Retrospective

Or: Please Don’t be Mad at Thanksgiving

“I’m planning on getting this sweet business tattooed on the nape of my neck the second I hit Stateside.”

“I don’t know if you’ve heard of this artist I like. He’s pretty out there. Pretty…avant-garde you might say. Yeah, you probably haven’t heard of him. Don’t worry about it. I said don’t worry about it.”

So this is obviously horrible, but it has a sense of humor about itself, and hey, right there’s a sun wearing sunglasses. God knows I can’t shit on iconography like that. And it was also so obviously made by a dude that somehow it’s charming. I don’t know. At least we’re not in Fiji, guys. Am I right? *wink*

This is actually fantastic. I can’t explain why, but trust, it is.

Hoooooo boy. This. This pretty much sums up everything that is dark and repulsive and evil hiding deep within the rotten hell-meat of the human heart. This makes me want to Early Terminate and never do anything nice for anyone ever again. And are those sailboats floating along the bottom? I don’t care! I don’t care what kind of sailboats or gers or high peaked mountains or weeping angels are sniffing around down there, because this is a hateful, cynical, bullshit piece of t-shirt. You should be ashamed of yourself. BOOOOOOOOOOO!

Sigh. I don’t know. I’m all pooped out after that last one. This is ugly.

I could get behind this one, if I knew where it was going on the t-shirt. And furthermore, who is teaching whom how to Dougie here, hm? These are the questions I want answered before I go any further.

Ok, so there’s a lot going on here. From where I’m standing, there’s that Dr. symbol, and a book with letters falling out of it, and some sort of flesh-crab standing on a Tugrik, and a child holding a great big pizza. Then there’s a dog slowly turning into a horse. Peace Corps! Did I win? MOTHERFUCKER I SAID DID I WIN?


I can live with this.

Why. Why. Why is this happening? WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, PEOPLE. Can you imagine wearing this in public, in America? Like, out to dinner at an adult restaurant? On an adult date?
“Oh, this is just my Peace Corps Mongolia shirt.”
“Yes, they require a college degree.”
Because there is a goddamn P and a C covering each of her eyeballs! Jesus, you don’t understand a single thing about me.”
And there went your wife. Thanks, T-shirt.

This is fine.

This reminds me of the time I had to introduce myself in a speech on the first day of school in front of everyone and a television crew and therefore I don’t like it.


Anyway! Thanks for making me glad I didn’t submit a T-shirt design. Now no cranky bitches will be raggin’ on me from the sad and lonely safety of the internet. Goodnight, Mongolia! Goodnight, everyone.


to start teaching the Counterparts about the advent of Transcendentalism? As soon as the resident intellectual returns from his week long bender, I say yes! To hell with definite articles, am I right?



Hi. I’m Jessica Madison, and I’m here to talk to you about Dill.

Did you know that dill, when added, by an intoxicated person, (along with maggi sauce and halon chinju) can create a very desireable illusion of vegetable to your steamed white rice?

Dill. It’s what’s in your steamed white rice.
