  • Outrage

    Author Nicola Griffith has blogged a call to action, which you can find here, in regards to a woman dying in the hospital whose same sex partner and children were not allowed by law to see her or receive any updates on her condition.  The hospital was later sued and the state awarded the hospital…

  • Charlie Brooker on the American News Media. Funny

    Seriously funny, seriously pathetic, seriously.  Thanks to my friend James in Manchester for sending me this.

  • Back to the village with head held high

    A friend sent me this clip from YouTube this morning, saying it was the best thing she’d seen on the internet in a while.  I had to agree, it was pretty damned awesome.  

  • Thought for the day

    I love the internet, but sometimes I feel like too much of my life is carried out on it.  It’s a necessity, to some degree.  But honestly, I sometimes dream that my laptop has bloodstained fangs.

  • Perplexed

    The other night, I was running in the university gym, and on one of the television screens above my head, CNN was running some segment that had something to do with Wall Street and the stock market plunging, and they kept cutting to different business-y looking people, who were obviously saying all kinds of stuff.…

  • Weird 80s Flashbacks

    I have been interrupted whilst trying to watch The Neverending Story THREE NIGHTS IN A ROW NOW. Clearly there is a conspiracy to keep me from revisiting films from my childhood. However, the YouTube video for the film’s theme song is much shorter than the film itself, and includes Limahl with crazy hair as usual!

  • Cats for Engineers and Ordinary People

    Looking for a laugh?  This did it for me this weekend.  Via Kelly.  Arigatou!

  • Fixer-uppers

    Via my friend Meghan, David Giffels sounds like a guy who is as crazy about Akron as I am about Youngstown. He bought a nearly condemned house a little over a decade ago and has been restoring it with his wife ever since, and even wrote a book about it. Can’t wait to read it.…
