Is Television Trying to Tell Us Marriage Sucks?

Marriage is terrible. As a restrictive, patriarchal construct, and as enacted in today's western cultures, marriage is the worst thing you can do to your own agency, to your children and to the person you love. Absolutely soul killing and damaging for all involved. At least that is the message about marriage many of this year's best television shows have been toying with, to great effect.  ...more
Totally agree. I mean, I don't think there is a single marriage on Grey's Anatomy that hasn't ...more

I Can't Believe I Missed Woodstock

In the summer of 1969, Provincetown’s Town House restaurant employed a “town crier” to walk the streets in a Pilgrim-ish outfit, ringing a big bell and loudly extolling the virtues of the eatery’s menu. His delivery was colorful, but his message was bullshit. ...more

RIP Terry Pratchett, One of the Greatest Men to Have Ever Lived

"NO MATTER HOW FAST LIGHT TRAVELS, IT FINDS THE DARKNESS HAS ALWAYS GOT THERE FIRST, AND IS WAITING FOR IT." Death is one of Terry Pratchett's legendary Discworld characters. He is unforgettable, and speaks in a booming voice of capitals. He is a skeleton with eyes like two tiny blue stars set deep within his skull. He rides upon a horse named Binky, whose hooves create formidable sparks as they strike the roads. He does, of course, carry a scythe. ...more

5 Life Lessons I Learned From Fandom

Being the child of two nerds gave me a major advantage in life, as I have learned and experienced things others did not get to. I have been attending cons since I was about five years old, which meant “summer vacation” was synonymous with “San Diego Comic-Con.” I received my first computer (built by my father) when I was one.

My life lessons started there, and only increased as I got older. ...more
