Sorry for the spammy links earlier folks. My twitter and FB got hacked and it went downhill from there.
I’ve got mixed feelings about Coming Out Day. On the one hand, I understand it’s importance, the necessity for some to have this day. On the other, I almost feel like there’s a pressure to be out and proud or use the day as a springboard to come out if you’re not already.What I don’t think a … Continue reading So… Coming Out Day

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed My rating: 5 of 5 stars Excellent showing for Saladin Ahmed's fantasy. I got sucked into the characters and invested in them. Raseed bas Raseed especially won me over. Zamia, our Badawi tribeswoman, augh all the feels for her character. I think that The Good Doctor needs … Continue reading Review: Throne of the Crescent Moon
"Bisexual activists like to complain that they're the most oppressed because (1) it's a contest, and (2) it's a good excuse. If they can argue—and unfortunately, they can—that lots of gay people are mean to them (some gay people don't want to date them, some gay people doubt they exist) and straight people are mean … Continue reading Savage Reality (Repost from Neo Prodigy on Livejournal)

So, I was able to see a preview of The Social Network, the story of the guys who created Facebook.

So... Book of Eli (link auto-plays a clip) finally. I enjoyed the film.

Roger Ebert is my new hero Roger Ebert discusses the danger of people like Bill O'Reilly and his influence over people and media.

Another passage described a family of six: "(The husband's) family has been out of food for quite some time now. Their one-year-old child is out of milk, can't get it and he has no idea when he will be able to get the next can. He has been borrowing milk from anyone he can." The next day, Tucker gave his letter to local officials who gathered for a meeting on fuel prices. It calls for someone, anyone, to fly food into the village over the next several months. "I'm not messing around. If we can get a massive air lift, do it," he said in a phone interview Wednesday. "I don't care how it's done," he said.
