Defending a movie I’m not keen on seeing…

I admit it. I’m not going to see “Sex and the City 2.” What I’ve gleaned of the plot seems interesting, the problems real enough- but I was happy with the way the first movie ended. That said, it surprises me how venomous the reviews for SATC2 have become. Not surprisingly, male reviewers don’t get

Webcomic Friday: Girls with Slingshots

I admit it, I meant to post this on Wednesday. I had this post in mind… and then I forgot. So, sorry. Today’s in Girls with Slingshots, a webcomic that’s definitely for adults (language & frankness about sex & sex toys). By Danielle Corsetto, it follows the life of Hazel and Jamie, two best friends

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” HAS to go.

Right now, the House has voted to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) by a vote of 234 to 194. A Senate panel has similarly voted 16-12. The next step to repeating DADT is for the Senate as a whole to include it as an amendment to a Defense Department funding bill and pass it.

Celebs who diet? Please.

Admission of guilt: I have a subscription to US Weekly. Ages ago, I did a magazine package deal and as magazine by magazine that I liked shut down, they apparently rolled all my remaining issues into US Weekly. This week’s issue has Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian on the cover, and talks about Diets That

Lost: The End

I remember ABC promoting JJ Abrams new show. About a plane crash on an island. It seemed like an odd premise, like a dramatic Gilligan’s Island or less scripted Survivor. But I watched it, and was hooked. Never once did my belief in the show falter. I played the ARGs, I watched the shows and

When Good TV Shows Get Canceled

With network upfronts come and gone, it means that tv shows have been cancelled and there are new shows to worry about meeting the same fate. Having seen plenty of complaints from friends about good shows being cancelled, I thought I’d use what knowledge I had of ratings from working in advertising and what I’ve

Webcomic Wednesday: Johnny Wander

I read a lot of webcomics. My RSS reader just gets filled with more and more and more as time goes on. While there are a lot of great ones out there, I thought I’d put the spotlight on a few webcomics that I really adore, and whose creators are equally fabulous people. First up

On the Road

We’ve finished leg #1 of our trip, which wasn’t too far from home. But it felt like a real vacation. How so? Our oldest spiked a fever and threw up twice. He’s fine now, but it reminded me of a few trips where my sister and/or I got sick. And even as I gave him

The Newsweek article on Gay Actors, revisited

After the internet rose up against Ramin Setoodah (whose name is now one that I remember how to spell), he posted a follow-up to the original article. In short, he was misconstrued. His point was that thus far, there hasn’t been a major leading man who was openly gay and wondering if it was possible.

Spin it, Facebook Exec!

Just a couple days ago, I posted my thoughts on the latest Facebook changes. While I tackled the privacy issues first and foremost, there are other concerns. All my interest information is public- and there’s no way to opt out of that, other than to delete it entirely. Not only that, Facebook adjusted how my
