Newsweek discusses feminism in P&R

Newsweek discusses the feminist lessons in Parks and Recreation
April 14th, 2010
From Newsweek:

Leslie [Knope]’s a staunch advocate for the advancement of all women through mentorship programs, positive role models, or grating, often unsolicited pep talks. She believes in equal opportunity for, and the untapped potential of, women. She cultivates and values female friendships: witness Galentine’s Day, the amazing ritual she puts on for her female friends every February 13, complete with gift bags and affirmations for the important women in her life. She interacts with her female coworkers, talking to them about more than boys and babies.

After some early jokes about how bad she was with guys, we’ve seen Knope date (for the most part) handsome, intelligent, noncrazy men; her two sustained relationships have been mature and realistic. They ended not because of her horrible man-keeping skills, or because she’s such a workaholic, but because for various believable reasons, they weren’t working out. She’s a career-minded gal who balances work and personal life. She’s in her mid-30s, but doesn’t spend her downtime fantasizing about children or weddings.

Leslie is competent. She’s good at lots of things—hunting, golf, her job—and isn’t afraid to admit it (due, in part, to her social tone-deafness. “Guys love it when you can show them you’re better than they are at something they love,” she says in one episode.) Her work is valued, her eagerness tolerated, her role respected by those who know and love her—and her friends and coworkers do love her, rather than pity her, patronize to her, or put up with her.

Fake Movies: The Renegades

Genre: Rock-and-Roll Comedy
Plot Description: Bratton (his real name) was a member of sixties folk-pop band the Grass Roots, and Pratt does a great job of playing a bumbling, aspiring rocker on PRecs. We’re thinking a mentor-protégé rock flick, with Creed guiding Pratt’s character to stardom to vicariously recapture his own youth, but turning against him when Pratt hooks up with Creed’s groupie daughter. Most important: A feature film will give Bratton lots more opportunities to be hilariously creepy.

April Ron Swanson Ts

Glarkware.com has two new T-shirts for Ron Swanson fans. Both Ts are available for purchase in April only!

Shirt #1: Can you guarantee fridge space?

When I’m invited to a social gathering, it’s natural that I will have questions for the host. What sort of attire is appropriate? Could I arrive early to help set up? And, oh yeah: even though the host didn’t ask for them and probably doesn’t want them, I’ll be bringing a platter of deviled eggs. So can my host guarantee fridge space? Seriously, CAN SHE?! Also I intend to eat all the deviled eggs myself.

Shirt #2: Pull up a mouth. This buffet is unstoppable

For some men, life’s biggest thrill is a visit to an establishment where barely clad women remove what few scraps of clothing they are wearing, and then grind their most intimate parts in strange fellows’ faces (or parts beyond). For others, it’s a great seat at a Pacers game. Our kind of man only gets REALLY excited about a trip to a well-stocked all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet — and when he shows up, the kitchen had better get ALL the bacon out of the walk-in fridge.

Aziz in new comedy book

The Daily O’Collegian:
The latest release from Vintage Books, “You’re a Horrible Person, But I Like You” brings together some of the funniest comedians in show business and asks them some of life’s deepest questions.

Just about everybody who has made you laugh on TV or in a movie since 2004 contributes to this book. Judd Apatow, Aziz Ansari, Rainn Wilson, Jim Gaffigan, Ed Helms, and Michael Cera, among others, each contribute a chapter of advice while veteran comedian David Cross provides the introduction.

All of the hardest questions in life are addressed in the pages of the book. For instance, Aziz Ansari explains that Gavin from Cleveland’s dizzy feeling isn’t love, but is in fact the result of bad macaroni, a fact that Ansari knows from experience.

The paperback was released on April 6.
