Book Review: It Devours by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor

I started this book in September 2018, but took a long break until mid January 2020. When I picked it back up earlier this year, I quickly learned that I was just 7 pages from the action hitting. If only…

Book Review: Gork the Teenage Dragon by Gabe Hudson

I’m not going to come in here saying this was a great book that I enjoyed, because that’s not what we do here. Instead, we’re going to stay honest in this book review, and everyone is going to deal with…

Book Review: The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai

Friends and Fangirls, I am a big fan of Romance books, but I never read them. They tend to be too quick of reads for me to want to spend money on them, so my cheap ass says nah. But…

The Remarkable Act of Not Giving a Fuck

For the purposes of this editorial I want to make clear the act of not giving a fuck versus apathy. Apathy is total disinterest, defined by a lack of enthusiasm or concern. When you’re apathetic about something you don’t care.…

Hold the Floor: How the AHCA Wants to Kill You

Some of you may know that Democrats are currently holding the floor in the Senate, in an effort to get the GOP to talk about their proposed healthcare bill that will cut insurance to some 23 million Americans. Some of…

When Your President Doesn’t Believe in Science, Reason, or Community

Well, in the let’s fuck with an already fucked up climate news that has an iceberg the size of Delaware ready to break off from Antarctica, unprecedented global warming that will flood our coasts and dry up our farms, and…

This Is Nothing New – Tribalism Has Been Here All Along

As the current U.S. presidential administration continues to create a circus out of the judicial process and quietly (and not so quietly) strip away personal liberties and the transparency of the press, I have alternated between indignant, angry, sad, overwhelmed,…

How to Be An Ally And Use Google – AKA, A Tale of How Not To Be an Asshole

There is a trend of entitlement on Twitter (and lots of other places, but let’s focus there) that revolves around this one simple phrase: “Explain to me why this is.” Now, this might not be an insidious thing on the…

Forgiveness Is A Choice We Define

I’d like you all to get on the galloping trope-horse with me for a second to talk about something that I think is the definition of poor writing. It’s not only poor writing, but it reinforces unhealthy behavior and outdated…

Live and Let Live: Thoughts on Fandom and Acceptance

Let’s take a minute and talk about fandom. We (otherwise known as fans) rally around a show, or a movie, or a band in the way that we rally around all causes. The implicit humanness of the stories, the music,…

The Ted Koppel Paradigm

We have lost something in the past few years. It is clear in the current fabric of media and journalism that we have lost accountability. We have lost the truth of news meaning anything beyond a quick splash that never…

The Chastity Belt of Horror

Sex is a killer. No, not killer as I like to think in the fun, sweaty, panting, orgasm way, but a thing in which the next victim is chosen for the sacrifice of serial killers, psychopaths, and bad TV writers…

Equality is Intersectional and I Believe in It

I believe in intersectional feminism. I believe that my privilege is less than a white man’s and greater than a person of color’s, not in fairness, or on purpose, but because systemic conditioning and media saturation has created an environment…

Stop and Fangirl Episode 11: The Gilmore Girls Revival

The Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons and revealed a world of banter, coffee, and the crazy yet loveable, Stars Hollow residents that have lingered since the show aired its last episode. Rory and Lorelai were part of our worlds…

Shadowhunters Got It Right With Simon

Of all the characters in the Mortal Instruments series, Simon is probably the one that translates best to screen. He’s funny, nerdy, relatable, and the one guy who seems to realize how absolutely crazy (and awesome) his situation is. He…
