In Which The Snow Blankets the Earth

It’s quiet. It’s more than quiet, and it’s honestly less than peaceful, but you don’t see me complaining. I like the quiet, sometimes. Sometimes it’s needed. For the earth to just settle down for a few days, for the traffic to slow, for the people to stay inside, for businesses to close. Yes, the snow … Continue reading

Dollhouse Has Moved Me, or, Joss Whedon is a God

That’s right. Dollhouse. Joss Whedon. I’m calling them brilliant. Go ahead, mock me, tell me why I’m a nerd/geek/Whedonite. Tell me that Joss Whedon is two dimensional, that he talks funny, whatever. Tell me that he isn’t relevant, tell me that he is a sexist in disguise. You’re all wrong. And I’ll tell you why- … Continue reading

In Which I Discover Tarot

She flips the cards slowly, deliberately. Strength. Her eyes light up, as though she’s just made a discovery that she can’t keep to herself. “What this card is trying to tell you is that you want the courage to go after your future. Your heart’s desire is the strength to do the things you need. … Continue reading

In Which I Have Qualms With Theatre

Yes, I said it. I do. I have qualms with theatre. Or, more correctly, I have qualms with UC Denver theatre. I have qualms with having to take direction from someone who has never directed a day in her life (and if she has, well, she’s fooled us all so far!). I have qualms with … Continue reading

Where the Wild Things Are, or, the Truth About Family

As I’m sure you know, this post is mostly about the film Where the Wild Things Are, directed by Spike Jonze and only recently in theaters. But this post is also about the realities of family from a child’s point of view, and how this comes through in Where the Wild Things Are. First things … Continue reading

Getting Off: Porn and the Decline of the Masculinity

The title of this post is the title of a book I am reading by Robert Jensen. Not only that, I was lucky enough to hear him speak yesterday about the increasing issue of pornography in the case of women. If there is anyone out there who repeatedly or religiously or even just occasionally, uses … Continue reading

Dreaming of the Apocalypse

I’ve been dreaming about the end of the world. Usually when I dream about the Apocalypse there are zombies, or robots, or I’m a part of a small colony fighting for land. In this last dream, there were no supernatural beings, no demons, no monsters. There was only rain and a strange, deep sense of … Continue reading

In case you didn’t know..

Hello. I’m new here. I usually don’t do this sort of thing (in fact, in middle school I refused to write a journal entry as part of an assignment, on the grounds that it was unfair to force one to share one’s feelings.), but I’m making an exception for a few reasons: a.) Everyone else … Continue reading
