From Texas to Europe to the world.
A showerhead, leggings, music, movies, tv, cookware, foodstuffs, and, of course, books. Lots and lots of books.
So I recently discovered Steven Universe. I fully recommend it (it’s on Cartoon Network and Hulu). Some people on Tumblr, etc. get a little too into it, but it is quite smart. Don’t let the animation style make you think it isn’t.
The Star-Spangled Banner is freaking terrible.
Women & men and the workplace.
The Most Cynical Thing I’ve Seen This Week:
Christmas Movie Edition
The Virtual Reality Thing
Oh, jeez. This weekend is already crazy. Which is bad because this weekend is in the eye of the hurricane of The Holidays.
Boom goes the dynamite.
A review of “National Treasure” (Not the Nicolas Cage movie) and thoughts on the issues surrounding it.
Married… with children. And not married with children. And married without children. And more.
Tillerson might be on the way out, more intrigue in Trump’s dysfunctional governmet.
There are bad movies. There are very bad movies. There are historically bad movies.
And then, there’s The Room.
High crimes and inappropriate feelers.
The re-start of Eastern Airlines went well, especially with how they communicated to the brand’s fans. Then, everything went downhill and my hopes for the “Wings of Man” went down the drain.
Contact your friends that you still think about all the time but haven’t talked to for a while.
This week: Relationships, Politics, Media, Business, and Food!
Polluting it, saving it, surviving it…
Spoiler-free review of The Punisher
Oh, no! It’s time for the Steam sale again!
(I found an *AWESOME* roguelike. Heat Signature.)
The future of my city is uncertain for working and middle-class families following October’s fires.
War, crime and pet massacres.
Happy American Turkey Day!
The song that I listen to every year
My thoughts on the talks put forth at the local TED event. Also, if you are in the PacNW, and find yourself at a McMenamins, try the Pike Place Cod sandwich. SoOoOoOo good!
I prefer that innocent fantasyland I dwelled in as a child.
Cities, real and imaginary.
The artistic black and white video thing
Perhaps the most famous case of a man abusing his power to take advantage of a woman, came to light 20 years ago. Is it finally time to talk about what Bill Clinton did while in office, with the perspective of today’s #metoo movement?
Have a Happy Thanksgiving for those in the US (or not in the US, but who celebrate it anyway). We are reprising our plan from last year, which is to meet up with some friends at the local Brazilian Steakhouse. My Portuguese is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure the name of the place translates to “Meat Coma”.
Life doesn’t often present you with moral temptations where the right and wrong answer are so easy to see.
Some Folks Just Need Killing
To STEM or not to STEM… and a look at England and Japan.
Justice League: Red Flags
South Park’s “The Fractured But Whole”
Please don’t defend Roy Moore. At least not where I can hear it.
[CN: more or less the same as yesterday’s feature, to which this one relates. Relationships with a very large age gap, where one partner is a teenager. I was personally very upset by one sentence in here, but because of how very well it articulated something the author criticizes, a thing that my father also wanted and shouldn’t have wanted – a thing that another old man I know who is on trial right now also wanted and shouldn’t have wanted – not because of anything explicit. The essay was more than worth the resulting flashbacks, but I was grateful to have been warned before I read it. Can you have a trigger warning for insight? (Don’t get distracted into debating that in the comments, please.) — Maribou]
