Assholes

It seems we need a reminder, so here’s an updated list of things. What kind of things? Well, these are things which–if you do them–make it perfectly fine to label you as an asshole. Don’t want to be an asshole? Start by not doing these things. –Post spoilers. We’re all glad that you have time to watch The Walking Dead as it airs. But for people with kids, jobs, lives, can’t afford cable, etc–they have to watch later. Telling everyone…

Losing Feminist Freinds

It’s always a drag when I try to have a civil disagreement with feminist-activists, and have to end up explaining that no, I’m not okay with racism, I’m not cool with sexism, but I do think it’s okay to tackle these subjects via humor that is not always politically correct. It’s a bigger drag when I’m accused of being “part of the problem” because I disagree that artists are morally or ethically wrong because they approach subjects in a way…

Holidays

Today is Sweetest Day, which I completely forgot.Was going to cab it over to the mall to get H a pressie, but it’s football Saturday, which I also completely forgot. I could not possibly care less about football, except that it makes me want to leave the house even less than usual. Drunken crowds, you know. Halloween is coming up, and I have no plans. Bummer.If you know of any cool events that I’d be welcome at, do let me…

What’s new?

I quit ArticleCats this week. Nice people there, but I’ve had 4 editors in the last 8 months because they all either quit or get fired. Lamesauce. Plus, my assignments there were boring, and the pay was too low.Got offered another geekwriting gig. But again, not enough money for the work they’re asking me to do. It’s not that I’m unwilling to write geekery for a low base wage. I am. But I only have so many hours a week…

Tear You Apart

On a huge “She Wants Revenge” kick after the Hunger-inspired killy group sex scene in the AHSH premiere last night. Not a bad ep, but as usual, seeing everyone complain about how much they dislike the show (that they somehow keep watching in the 5th year) is equally fun. I can’t imagine hate-watching a show this fun, but to each their own, I suppose. Was delighted to see that Kevin McCarthy (no, not the good one from Invasion of the…

Not the top of a house…

I think I have shingles. I developed a really painful rash on my back. Now it seems to be spreading. I don’t know what else that could be. And I have had chicken pox as a kid. Luckily, H has had chicken pox too, which means I can’t give it to him. Thanks, WebMD. I’ve been doing work, looking for more work, and watching TV. Kind of a lot of TV. The fall shows are back and the summer shows…
