Why Women Aren't Funny →
Just discovered and am digesting this. “In any case, my argument doesn’t say that there are no decent women comedians. … Most of them, though, when you come to review the situation, are hefty or dykey or Jewish, or some combo of the three.” Reminds me of the frequent conversation I hear where people say there are few female singers or writers that they like. I confess, I...

Sarah and Chrissy let me write a guest post on Philolzophy. philolzophy: The teachers in my freshman Intro to Philosophy class introduced Peter Singer’s “Famine, Influence and Morality” essay to us by explaining it as the “Don’t Buy an iPod” argument.

Steve Marsh: I didn’t get to see Howl! It was only here for a hot minute....– OK “Howl” sucked ass. It was one of the stupidest movies I’ve ever seen.

It’s about as convincing as CNN’s article about white racism. “She might be 21,” Kenny says, “and one day her trust officer sits her down and says, ‘Here’s how it’s going to work. You’re going to get this many millions today, and this many millions when you turn 30.’ Then she’ll have to go back to...
I wrote a review of Smuckers Stars on Ice according to my sisters reactions to the show.
Unsolicited advice for the world
Giving out advice seems really douchey, like I’m saying I have it all “figured out” and I don’t have flaws. That is not the case. But that being said, there are two things I have figured out that I think repeatedly every day so I am going to share them. If you want to be a creative person, a writer or painter or whatever, this is the major paradigm shift that will help...

3 Haikus About Pepperoni Pizza Cracker Combos
1. Species that like treats Dogs, People, Cats, Dolphins, Birds and a couple more. 2. Hard, you’re a cracker. Soft, you are more like a crust. Round, you’re a Combo. 3. Pizza unfreezes and becomes ephemeral. Combos never die.

Me and Ryan have received some relationship advice from drunk strangers this weekend. Both times he had interesting things on his head that confused the drunk person so they said things like “do you have dreads?” or “oh hey darth vader.”
