more on prop 8

From the Feminist Majority Foundation, a new video encouraging voters to vote No on Prop 8. [youtube=] (Thanks to Amy from Ms. Magazine for the heads up.) Just in case you didn’t get it from the earlier post:Prop 8, if passed, will make it illegal for two people in love to get married. The confusing […]

No on Prop 8

I don’t live in California, but goodness, sometimes I wish I did. One of my favorite people (my brother) and a few old friends live there. They have Sacramento and San Francisco. And then this year they went ahead and legalized same-sex marriage. But guess what? That legalization is now in danger, thanks to Proposition […]

oh, wait, what was I thinking, all asking for equality and stuff?

I mean, if I knew I was going to be oppressing all of those fine,upstanding straight couples in America by demanding respect for my relationship and my partner, I never would have done it in the first place! [ /sarcasm ] From (emphasis mine): “We are traditionalists – we just want to be called […]

recap(ish): ANTM, episode 11.3

This week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model started with technical difficulties: my friend Lynn was over for dinner, after which we went out for a quick drink at the local watering hole. Because of this, I had to tape ANTM and in setting up the tape, managed to eliminate the volume for the first […]

recap(ish): America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 11

Last night, the CW premiered America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11. As usual, a whole mess of really pretty girls attempt to win one of 14 spots in the Top Model house, where they’ll compete in a series of challenges and photo shoots. Each week, one model gets eliminated until the ultimate Top Model is […]

tv alert: America’s Next Top Model

Season Premiere tonight, at 8 p.m. (EDT), on the CW. Whoo! I can’t wait to see how this season goes – I hope that Isis Tsunami doesn’t get booted right away. I’d like to see her make it at least halfway through the season (though top four would be even better). And I hope she […]

yes. the pay is certain.

I suppose since I started writing at the age of 12 (and “seriously” at around 20), I have searched for a way to explain writing and its impact on me. Succinct summation is difficult to come by, and I’ve tried on many quotes over the years that seemed to fit for some time. Some (probably […]

targeted at target

This morning, I woke up at 8 a.m. and started cleaning. My landlord wants to come by next week to check out the floors, as she’s aiming to replace the linoleum in the foyer, kitchen, bathroom and laundry room, so I figured I’d better give the place a thorough spring clean before she arrives. After […]

It’s Friday, a day that ends in “y.” You know what that means?

That means it’s time for another celebrity to say something incredibly stupid. Meet Usher.He’s hot:He’s cool:He’s sensitive:He’s a talented singer, with a history to prove it: 30 million records sold, 5 Grammy awards and a record label of his own. He’s also apparently an idiot. In a cover story interview for the July issue of […]
