I really enjoy a good technothriller. They’re rare — it’s a genre that rewards “boys will be boys” cliches, clunky writing replete with poorly handled info-dumps, and really underdeveloped characters. Tag… is not a great entry into the genre. Here’s the description from Amazon: On 15 March 2110, 6.3 billion people will die at the hand of one man. A man with a twisted vision, [...]
I just witnessed two middle-aged geezers refusing to let a young attractive woman carry some cartons of beer. Did they hasten to take these burdens from her and carry them for her in a possibly misguided yet well-intentioned bout of chivalry?

Really great post on Firefly: Shouldn’t it be a priority, if you’re trying to tell a [...]
Wow, this is oddly sweet. Oh, Katy Perry. BAMF in motion. She’s so talented!

Who DOESN’T like onesies?? I looooove this Kindle commercial. This pretty much describes my professional life.
On thigh gaps and thinspo. One of the best follow ups to a TED talk. SAY NO TO SUPERMAN. Diocese says: No girls allowed!! I pretty much agree with all of this, and share the Sansa love. Sports Illustrated is all about boobies and low self esteem. Y’all, the LoGI email is BACK in BUSINESS. For this week, we have submissions from: Alex, who writes: [...]
