American Idols

Apparently, the internet is in a tizzy today because of Kim Kardashian’s butt. Yeah, that’s a real thing. I have no interest in knowing why her butt is such a spectacle, so I haven’t looked up the pictures that are making her more ridiculously famous than usual, and I have no intention of it. I […]

The Art of Sacrifice

My kindle recommends lots of stories. I’ll try new authors from those recommendations sometimes. Most write well with expansive worldbuilding and intriguing story-lines.

My wife and I had an awkward moment upon discovering that yahoo broadcasts live concerts on their website. She noticed Aerosmith was live and clicked in curiosity.

It’s Not About You, Princess

It’s Not About You, Princess

In the news a lot lately about how someone is offended by this or that, or we should go out of our way not to offend someone or other for this or that reason. Recently, a restaurant took down a picture of bacon because a Muslim woman said she was offended by the image. Just […]
