on the heat death of the universe

I know, I know, I’ve been gone for ages, and there was that weird guest post about racism in porn that was up for about an hour before I took it down, and I’ve been totally silent otherwise. It’s weird. I know. Sorry. I will be re-uploading the porn article, by the way. My friend(…)

let’s not give big companies free labor anymore

It’s time to start figuring out your summer plans, college kids. Time to start perusing the job boards for something that will make you look good and won’t be too boring.

what about those fairy tales…

what about those fairy tales…

The first fairy tale that I remember hearing was the story of how my parents met. While it did not fit into a “tale type” and was not written by the Grimms, to me this story represented the ultimate fairy tale. It began once upon a time in 1985, in the far away land of(…)
