Being inaccessible in an all-access world

Being inaccessible in an all-access world
Electronically, I’m pretty much always available. My phone has everything — cue Stefan voice — five different email accounts, Facebook, Twitter, text messaging, and even, like, an actual keypad that dials something called a “phone number.” I refuse to install the Facebook Messenger app, which is kind of hilarious.

Duplo f*cks it up as well
It’s that time of year, I guess. It’s that time of year when parents and kids are bombarded by toy catalogs and advertisements for all the hot toys of 2014. It’s the time of year where the disparity between boy toys and girl toys becomes glaringly apparent. I saw an article yesterday on Gizmodo about... Read more »

The Walking Dead, "Consumed"

The Walking Dead, "Consumed"
Sometimes The Walking Dead‘s fractured storytelling is a blessing and sometimes it’s a curse. It was fun hanging with Abraham and the Mullet last week. Last season, the new pairs were fabulous — I loved Carol and Tyreese, Rick and Michonne, even Daryl and Beth. Today, however, the show suffered from two characters with very... Read more »

Kim Kardashian: Ass-pirational Booty

Kim Kardashian: Ass-pirational Booty
Obviously there’s been a lot of hubbub about Kim Kardashian and her Paper photoshoot. Chelsea Handler instagrammed a pic of her own butt in retaliation. This has officially become a “thing.” I joked on Facebook yesterday that maybe Ass Wars (posting pictures of your own ass) is the new Ice Bucket Challenge. I’ve heard… “Can we... Read more »
