Not Everything Means Something: Virginia Tech

Remember how, when the Virginia Tech shootings happened, I didn’t want to say anything right away except “my deepest sympathy goes out to the families and friends of the victims”? I didn’t want to rush to judgment about what happened and why? A couple of weeks ago, Jon Carroll wrote pretty much the thing I’ve …

Fingertips! Buffy the Vampire Slayer and They Might Be Giants

If you’re not a fan of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and They Might Be Giants, this will probably make absolutely no sense to you at all. But if you are, you’re going to love it. A friend sent it to me: it’s called “21 Vidlets About Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and it… well, just …

This is serious, people. Really, really serious. Really. 4/29truth.com: A Campaign to Expose the Truth of 4/29 Spread the word, people! The so-called “media” is stonewalling this story. (We all know who THEY’RE controlled by, don’t we?) And be sure to read the comments — that’s where the REAL truth about this so-called “accident” starts …

Sex Crazed Sex Goddesses of Sex: Women Who Like Sex, and the Men Who Don’t Appreciate Them

Dan Savage (of the Savage Love sex advice column) did this very clever thing recently. He ran a column pretending to agree with the proposition that women across the board simply aren’t as interested in sex as men… and then waited for the letters to pour in, from legions of outraged women with high libidos …
