No. Just...no. The most shit-tastic music format ever is now a nostalgia thing? I have fond memories of playing tapes for most of my childhood and teenage life, but what a pain in the ass they are! People say the same about vinyl, but your record player doesn't suck the record up into its hungry... Continue Reading →
I have a certain family member who subscribes to the "Obama's a Muslim" school of paranoid and irrational conservative thinking. She knows -- for a fact! -- he's a Muslim, because he wears a ring that says so. Well that's a new one for me, so I asked for details. Apparently he wears a ring that... Continue Reading →
My cousin, who lives in London, recently posted this to Facebook and it just begs to be shared. Her caption: "Halloween in England. Sigh." All they're missing is one for minstrels in blackface -- OMG wouldn't little Katie look absolutely darling in that?? (Correct answer: no.)
Sometimes I wonder if I have too much fun at Christians' expense on here. I'm fully aware that I tend to hammer on that topic a lot, and I'm sure turns more than a few people away from reading anything I write.

The marketing onslaught for this next "Star Wars" movie is going to be one of the biggest ever, I think. Like Hello Kitty, there's simply nothing they can't slap a character on and sell it!
I do eat some meat (chicken and turkey 99% of the time), so in that way I'm contributing to the industrialized killing of animals, just like most of the rest of the country. However, there's a slight difference between that and eating something that resulted from an animal being force-fed until its organs nearly explode. Foie gras is simply... Continue Reading →
Yes, we all know that your kids are an extension of you, and that's your biggest problem. You're programming them with a taste for the kind of ridiculously overpriced (and, I must say, quite hideous) clothing you somehow think they would naturally choose for themselves, but let's be honest: it really just comes down to...

These WWII reenactment people see absolutely nothing wrong with having a Nazi dinner party and apparently have all kinds of justifications for why it's harmless and even necessary.
