Can you vilify Hillary Clinton without being called sexist? Signs point to no…

A friend posited the following on her FB page (paraphrased here). “It seems that Hillary is attacked due to gender-based perceptions: She’s cold, manipulative, sneaky, can’t be trusted, and so on. Very few people are speaking about the actual issues. Foreign policy? Hillary has laid out a comprehensive set of goals and stances. Trump said that generals Read More …

Storm’s here.

In December of 2014, I wrote this post as a placeholder for further exploration. I never got back to the subject because I was trying to juggle the holiday performance schedule and the last semester of classes before graduation in May. It isn’t that the problem had gone away, but it seemed quiet for a Read More …

Orlando…

In January 2013, after the Sandy Hook massacre, I was moved to write this post. Last night I attended the Orlando memorial and vigil, combined with the movie Pride, which my art house theater showed for free. I held one of the candles early on in the evening, before the movie, to honor the dead. While I was Read More …

Guns? No. Radical Islam? No. LGBTQ Rights? No. Insanity? Close…

UPDATED: 7:49pm   I didn’t want to go there, but I sure had a sneaking suspicion, and I’ve just been proven right. According to Gawker Magazine, the shooter was a regular at Pulse. This was no random attack. It was cold blooded, premeditated murder. Daesh had nothing to do with it.   Orlando Shooter Was Read More …

How this works…

Want to know how I find the stuff I do? Well, generally speaking, I hear something on NPR or I read an article. Most of the time, I find inspiration from some potentially questionable source that isn’t considered mainstream (likely liberal or conservative clickbait title, questionable links hung off the page) or the story sends me Read More …

Fact-free ideology…

You know, I’m not all that good with math. Certainly never good enough to manage Trig in any useful way. There’s some amount of magic in making long formulae play together in complex methods that explain the universe (or at least try). That said, there’s some basic math I consider easy to understand. Bistro math, Read More …

But you have to stay…

Ya know, since I started posting about this election cycle, the rhetoric has gotten increasingly difficult to take, from both sides. For those of us who are all #VoteBlueNoMatterWho, it’s a no-win scenario. From either side, I hear that I’m supporting someone disingenuous or incapable of winning. Hillary supporters think Bernie can’t do the job, Read More …

I’m just gonna leave this here…

I am making a last-ditch attempt at concentrating on classwork before my final projects are due and I wrap up my second BA in Graphic Communication (this Sunday, and thanks for asking). After I finish, I’ll have all the time in the world to blog again, but in the meantime I’m putting these two links Read More …

Slippery slope…

“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22 Clearly I’ve struck some nerves recently and folks are beginning to ask for my opinion. That makes me feel less like I’m shouting into the wilderness. Which is good, except that this might be a very short term opportunity to get Read More …
