I’ve posted a couple of Spotify song links recently. I was under the mistaken impression (I didn’t test the links) that they would, oh, you know, cause the songs to play. But they don’t. They cause Spotify to launch, and then to play the songs. This sucks. But this is not what I want. Sorry, […]

I have a friend. Like many women – like most women I know, horrifyingly – she’s been raped. Like even more (I can’t substantiate that with a citation, but I believe it to be true), she has the occasional rape fantasy.

It’s Thanksgiving, here in the US, and I’m genuinely thankful for much: 1. Above all, family: nuclear AND extended. We all are crazy, but I truly love my family. 2. Friends: I’m lucky to have tremendous, awesome friends, both in real life and as a result of my online existence, and at least a couple […]
