If there was a graph out there that had the fluctuations of how often pixie cuts came back into style, I would probably post it here, but I could not find one to prove my point. American culture (especially the one that exists online) is OB-freaking-SESSED with looking perfect. If you have ever noticed, whatever…… Continue reading The Unending Battle to Become Perfect

A Brutally Honest Review of Justice League The Movie

When you, as a person with the ability to influence society/culture, use your position to gratuitously sexualize something that has proven (or not intended) to not be so you are in the wrong. There is so much they could have done with this movie, but let’s just sit back and let Superman handle it cuz…… Continue reading A Brutally Honest Review of Justice League The Movie

Just a Thought on Novel Openings

Writing is, perhaps, one of the more difficult of the hobbies/jobs there is in the world today.  To me, it isn’t the character creation or plot invention or dialogue… it is the BEGINNING that always gives me pause.  Perhaps that says something terrible about me, but the beginning of a story should more than just…… Continue reading Just a Thought on Novel Openings

Self-Harm (The Meditations)

“If you didn’t cut in high school, you didn’t suffer through high school.” If I had a penny for the times I have heard the argument that drug use or the abuse of alcohol or cutting are the only forms of self-harm I would have enough money to pay for my book addiction. I was…… Continue reading Self-Harm (The Meditations)
