State of the Union: Hell in a Handbasket

So, it’s been ages since I’ve had the time to do blog things and, in that time, the state of things in this country has gone from bad to worse to unthinkable. We’re still lucky in that Trump hasn’t been able to pull off half of what he or the Republicans wanted to, but we’re […]

Video: Morning Joe’s hilarious parody of Trump’s ass-kissing cabinet meeting

This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. After the lead-in footage of a cabinet meeting where Donald Trump made the boot-lickers go around the table and see who can kiss the most crack, the round table of commentators and analysts at Morning Joe take a stab at it, themselves. […]

Stephen Hawking adjust Doomsday Clock, Facebook loses it’s damn mind.

So, Stephen Hawking adjusts the doomsday clock and people’s reaction is not, ‘How do we fix this?’, it’s to attack each other. Attacks on religious beliefs (or lack thereof), attack each other’s politics, race, nationality, gender and then attack Hawking. I have an opinion, just like everyone else. I┬áthink that it would be easier and […]

Samantha Bee + Hasan Minhaj & (not) the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

So,we’ve just been subjected to yet another White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Woo. Yes, they’re boring. Yes, they’re a tasteless exercise in self congratulation. No, there’s no reason for half of the people who attend to actually be there. At least this year we had an alternative to the mind numbing and ridiculous parade of who’s […]

Top 6 Political Shows – Liberal Edition

I talk about being an active and avid fangirl, but I just realized that I don’t much talk about where my fannish devotion lies. I don’t know if it’s because I’m just not comfortable mixing religious and political rants with gushes over the latest episode of Westworld, or if it’s because I can’t stand fandom, […]

If we’re not America, who are we?

You don’t have to work particularly hard to make a case against America and it’s policies. Like all major countries, our government says one thing and does another, carries out horrors in our name and by and large we don’t even know what’s happening. We try, we do. The mentally hilarious way we cling to […]

Modern Fashion & Why I Forgot to Kill Hitler

What ever happened to fashion? What ever happened to the way we dress? I’m doing research for the second in a series of short stories set during the late Edwardian era and, much like with photos right up until the mid-1950s, I look at how beautifully these people are dressed and how neatly, even for […]

Hello from the Other Side

A photo of a place you hate is an odd way to start a blog, I realize. But it’s where my life is, right now. I’m in my mid-thirties, though I still feel sixteen on a good day, and this is just what the landscape of my life looks like. Now, I’m not bellyaching. Not […]
