I truly hate that autoloading "infinite scroll" business. I'd be very interested to hear why folks like it, if you do. I often find myself needing to scroll rapidly through a page to look for something or to get to something that I know... [more]

Mostly, it's not that the future is scary to us; it's that marketeers and various forces of evil benefit when we think that the youth are both better than us and somehow deficient - they all know how to swipe and are ready... [more]

(And just before I leave for real, I want to say that Critique-of-Masculinity-Radical-Queer World and Mainstream World are TOTALLY different. Something that I disagree with in Radical Queer World context (like treating "femme" and... [more]

When I was younger, and hadn't learned about etiquette, I was still trying to please everybody. Someone told me they hated it when someone said "excuse me" because it was just a polite way of saying "get out of my way". And... [more]

I think your view of how you think "straight people" see erotic performance is needlessly reductive, especially with regard to this project, and because of that, you're missing the point of these images in what they say about the... [more]

There won't be any mob justice. The minute that name comes out, they'll cordon off his house, they'll take him and his family right out of there - there's no fucking way that cops won't protect one of there own, no matter if he's a... [more]

It's amusing that folks are all "oh, these old white guys couldn't do anything sinister" when there are plenty of sinister old white guys who do godawful things - Henry Kissinger, for example, was in his sixties when he was jetting around... [more]

When you think about it there's this whole machine of ruin around this case - someone decides they can lean on an already-immiserated rape-victim petty criminal to get him to inform, which then destroys him; apparently various prison personnel... [more]

Let's be honest: you make a riot shield to help you win a street battle with police. That's what these guys were planning, and whatever the ultimate value of said shield, having a bunch of them on hand says a lot about one's intent. Okay,... [more]

On further reflection, the linked article would just be a lot stronger if it could be framed as "in 2004 I experienced this movie as [things]; this was my response to the state of the world. Now I notice that people thing [things]... [more]

It's not targeted at white dude-bros. It's targeted at offending hypocritical liberal-moralists. Their denunciations are what drives the campaign, and pushes it out into the smaller niches where it finds people who are willing to think about the... [more]

I feel that if you're holding a party at the dinner hour, you're expected to provide enough food to feel like dinner - it doesn't need to be dinner, but it needs to be pretty serious snack food. Also, you don't want a bunch of hungry... [more]

Maybe instead of, oh, blaming a bunch of low-income kids raised in terrible circumstances for rioting when those circumstances get worse, people could say "why the hell can't we have a functioning society where we don't have... [more]

I second doing stuff on the way home from work - gym, groceries, errands. This frees up more weekend time. I tend to get home and just collapse, but luckily I collapse and read so I at least get reading done. Simplify your weeknight meals -... [more]

Oh my god, the animated part where the Tick says to Arthur while they are dangling from a rope and need to build momentum, "Swing with me, Arthur, swing!" - and then swing music starts playing, OMG, that alone almost makes me feel that... [more]

Following this harassment of being singled out in the crowd and hurled slurs at, Cox took over. She told my sibling that she “[felt] sexuality is a lot deeper than gender because you can’t tell a person’s sexuality from just looking at them.”... [more]

The thing is, you can be a dandy and not dress like a robber baron or a Jeeves LARPer. I see many dandyish young fellows on my very street, in fact, who have obviously spent quite a lot of time and effort on their clothes - but they're not rich, and... [more]

It's really pushing it to be fifty-something and say you're Gen-X. Usually I see Gen-X as defined as born 1965ish to 1980ish. I had always thought that the defining factor was coming of age in some form during the 1980s. If you were born in 1960,... [more]

Much as I dislike his work, I've still gotta give the guy props for getting fired from The Observer for shooting heroin on the Prime Minister's private jet. I would find that much more appealing if I hadn't had to deal with junkies shooting... [more]

(The thing is, if your relationship is such that "if you loved me you would have sex with me right now regardless of what you want or how you feel" is primary way of getting sex, you have a bad relationship. There are all kinds of ways to... [more]
