at least she didn't get shot?
this lady from flint, michigan says she found God on a train in center city. i’m having a hard time deciding upon who this reflects more - flint or philly.
moreso than science fiction itself, i like it when...
“If there’s something keeping women away from enjoying science fiction, it’s not spaceships. It’s not “aliens on some far-off planet.” It’s the fact that people on our very own planet keep telling us that women aren’t supposed to like science fiction. It’s a self-confirming prophesy, because the more that scifi creators are told this, the more...
what's the matter, you've never seen a famous...
this whole day has seen everyone in my office a-twitter because owen wilson and that gay mcdoctor dude from that stupid show are filming outside of our building. i hate how people act when they see famous people. they’re just PEOPLE. however, i left the office for five minutes to run an errand and saw the masses on broad street snapping photos with their camera phones and calling everyone...

i think he thought that's who i voted for
my dad, who grew up in rapid city, south dakota, forwarded me, his daughter who moved from a mid-sized city to a large one, this article, written by a friend of his, who he says was also raised in the northern state. dear barak: you’re wrong about small towns
who wants to be ordinary in a crazy mixed up...
this here is a genuine, teary-eyed thank you to the very nice person that spent the time uploading the old sorority life episodes onto youtube. WE SALUTE YOU.
are the formative ones.
traffic, THE OLD FASHIONED WAY.
me: maybe she's kind of a very self absorbed elitist artist type.
rollertrain: please tell me if i ever start acting like that
me: okay. stop putting your boobs on the internet.
rollertrain: why is it weird that i put my boobs online?
me: once, twice - not weird. all the time - begging for attention.
rollertrain: whatev. if i had a naked girl @ my disposal i would use her instead
me: great. put an ad on craigslist.
rollertrain: also, my pageviews explode any time i post anything naked
me: SHOCKING. it's a copout for traffic.
rollertrain: DUH. i'm an art student, i will take traffic any way i can get it. i thought posting the n-word was a lot crazier. sigh
me: those girls that tony always croons over on the busblog are worthless. all they do is put idiot myspace-staged photos of themselves in panties all over a website and call it a blog, and people FAWN over them like they're oprah winfrey. it's unreal. REAL feminists don't need to show themselves in their skivvies to make a point. i don't care how proud women are of their bodies - those girls are exploiting their bodies for power, and it is the exact opposite of using your intellect to prove you are worthy of attention.
rollertrain: i agree with parts of this. however, in defense of the naked internet, if you're not one of those girls (LIKE ME) and you post photos of your slowly aging nudity on the web, like when you're going in for a second mammogram, it's embarrassing, vulnerable and a little brave
me: you're not posting them because you're going in for a second mammogram.
rollertrain: that one, i did. absolutely.
me: yeah, that ONE. what about the other 12?
rollertrain: i can see how it might be really annoying to have a sister who constantly acts like an asshole on the web. sorry for that. but i yam what i yam.
me: yes. WE KNOW.
rollertrain: did you see my big project yet? the bees?
me: the american gothic painting?
me: yes. it's amazing. i especially like the fact that it doesn't have any boobs in it.
about two years ago, my friend steve shoppman called me over to his house and asked if i would help write a press release. steve, and his roommate, steve, had decided they were going on an expedition around the world. big woop, right? what’s newsworthy about a couple of middle class white dudes going on a tour around the world? i know like six people that did that, and there was no press...
