Scenes From My Morning Commute, 3/13/13 (Belated)

14 March 2013

An speeding ambulance: lights flashing, sirens blaring. Gutter King sightings: 0. The awful voices blaring out of the radio this morning spent what I think it’s fair to classify as way too much time discussing Pope Francis’ lineage, vis a vis his Italian ancestry means that he is, in fact, the dreaded Petrus Romanus, the final […]

Portmanteau

20 February 2013

Today is the day that, presumably, Sony announces the PlayStation 4, and it’s expected to be a big, shiny, expensive convergence device that ‘connects your living room to the cloud’ or whatever and, hey, also plays games, though now the games will probably require you to jump around like an idiot in order to play […]

Unfollowing

19 February 2013

So. Back, back in the long ago, there were Blockbuster Video stores. And in those stores, you could buy a monthly pass to watch unlimited movies.  There was a Blockbuster less than a mile from my house. I think you see where this is going.

21 January 2013

Did you know that there’s a show on SyFy called Ghost Mine? The premise: a crew of miners opens up a long-shuttered mine that is reputed to be haunted. A team of ghost hunters documents everything while the audience pretends not to realize how ridiculous and probably fake this whole thing is. As long as people […]

I’ve Never Seen A Turtle…

16 January 2013

Somehow, I ended up on a mailing list for ARCs. And I’m incredibly grateful for that, but it also makes me feel incredibly guilty. I mentioned just a few days ago that I didn’t read as much as I usually do in 2012 – only 23 books when I’ve been known to do a book […]

Confirmation Bias

14 January 2013

When a work of art includes a problematic subject or theme, there are always going to some segment of the audience that believes that confronting that subject is the same as condoning it. It is NEVER X to Y about Z, after all. The use of torture in Zero Dark Thirty, for instance, just glorifies torture, […]
