Why I Care About Rules

Laden, the hilarious thing is that you think anyone other than you and Zvan gives a flying fuck about your “rules” gibberish. And it appears that it is your approach to “rules” has been soundly smacked in the face by the nature of objective fucking reality, no? You do know what it means when you …

May I Just Say…Arrgh!

Thankfully, though, there’s a company out there brave enough to tackle the differences between girls and boys—more specifically, the difference between the way boys play Ouija and the way girls play Ouija. Because when men are pretending to contact the dead, they’re all like, “Is there a ghost here?” while women are all like, “Who …

Gender Rule Follow-Ups

There are a couple of follow-ups to Sunday’s post that should definitely be read. DuWayne read Comrade PhysioProf’s post much the same way I did, and he has some pretty smart things to say about the role of men in demolishing harmful gender constructs. I’d excerpt it here, but it’s one of those posts that …

On Rules, Part the 47th

It’s not a secret that Comrade PhysioProf and I have some rather fundamental disagreements on the subject of rules. On the occasion of his contributing a guest post for Dr. Isis that is chock full of the things, I thought it was a good opportunity to go into some depth on why I think rules …

The Tyranny of the Original Idea

Despite our society’s romantic, individualistic notions, ideas don’t spring fully formed from the aether. There is no cosmic fountain of creativity. The muses, just like all the other gods, are relics of superstition. I’m committing heresy today over at Quiche Moraine. Feel free to join in or throw stones.

Repost: Oh, the Cheer

Greg put a post up today challenging reader/bloggers to find a post from 18 months ago that is relevant to what they’re writing about today. Given that I had all of four posts in November 2007 and had about 25 total posts under my belt at that point, I’m really surprised to find that my …

The Plan

Apropos of this post over at Greg’s, which made me think I really needed to pull this story out again, and yesterday’s music, which reminded me I hadn’t done it yet, here’s a little tale for you. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. The Plan Lauren sat behind …

Mood Music

This popped up on the iPod today and reminded me that I’ve got some writing to finish. Enjoy this for now, and hopefully there’ll be something more substantial tomorrow. If you miss the swearing from the album version, we can accommodate you at Quiche Moraine today. (Warning: brief strobes.) Atom Bomb She got a miracle …

Quiche Moraine Launch Party

Well, it only took us four months to launch Quiche Moraine. I guess it’s not too weird that it’s four months and 100 posts later before we work on having the launch party. If you’re in the area and interested in coming, head over to the thread we’ve hijacked for setting up the party and …
