Greetings, Unicorns. This week we have an update on the Freddie Gray case, SCOTUS decisions, and the Confederate Flag on its way out from public display. This and more, so let’s get started:
So this week might have veered a tiny bit back into “This Week in Misogyny” territory, but it’s not my fault a bunch of people have been sucking. But there’s also a pretty good helping of fun and badassery! And gifs.
It’s gift giving time again, dear unicorn friends, and I have the last list you’ll need.
Hi, Persephone readers! I’m a first-time poster, long-time reader who’s here to tell you the story of how I wrote a thing, I got a literary agent for thing!, thing did not sell, there was much huffing glue with fantasy creatures, and then I self-pubbed thing and lived to tell the tale. The zombie fairy […]
Happy Friday, friends. We have a grab-bag of politicians making some … questionable decisions, LEGO being awesome, and the Amazon Overlords being rather Overlord-y. Let’s get started.
Veronica Mars? Justified? The Americans? Not on Netflix streaming. But they are on Amazon Prime, which I know many of y’all have (because two-day shipping). Here’s what’s to watch on Amazon Prime when you’ve finished House of Cards.
I am so freaking sick of “Crazy Cat Lady.” Can we retire that already and replace it with Fanatical Feline Fancier? And who doesn’t love a little alliteration?
Welcome to the midweek news. Do you care? Would you rather watch Say Yes to the Dress? Well, sit a spell and see what’s up. You’ll soon be back watching spoiled children choose dresses that equal the cost of a down payment on a house.
Around my house, we go through a lot of consumables each week. Four people use a lot of toilet paper, tissues, toothpaste and the like. After running out of toilet paper one too many times late at night, I decided I was going to fix the problem once and for all. I finally started getting […]
The world is a terrible place. That’s why Shark Week exists. To remind us that there are awesome things out in the world. But let’s look at the not-so-awesome stuff first.
When Chicago winter rears its ugly, black icy, snow swirly head, all I want to do is stay inside and read books. I don’t want to work. I don’t want to go out. I don’t want to get the flu, but that happened last week. But you know the great thing about the flu (after […]
It’s science news time again, y’all! We’ve got a couple of the coolest self-portraits ever, alcoholic tree shrews (see if you can spot my truly terrible Shakespeare joke!), and intelligent sharks. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to PMag!
Q: Cock rings. Wow. Fucking cock rings.
As I sat down at the beginning of this week to decide what my review was going to be, I found myself floundering. I didn’t have anything in my to-read pile that seemed to fit, and nothing I’d read recently but hadn’t reviewed seemed adequate, either. As Friday approached and with it my self-imposed draft […]
Diana Wynne Jones has become one of my favorite authors, but I avoided her for years. The problem is that her books are not very blurb-friendly. I don’t know how many times I picked up one of her books, read the back and thought “Meh, maybe next time.” Then came the wonderful day I decided […]
