Another young black man has been gunned down. His name was Mike Brown. He was unarmed.

My [redacted] e-mailed me because she knew I would be upset about this story, because she knows all of my heart, and all I could say in response was, “I am numb.”

I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to…

"I’m fascinated with the voyeurism that defines so much of contemporary culture. We watch others, we watch ourselves, and share images of ourselves being watched. Revisiting the stories and myths that encompass many of the poems in Spectator necessitated a kind of voyeurism, too."

This is book two of the Xenogenesis series, now packaged as Lilith’s Brood. It is, like most of Butler’s work, nearly impossible to reduce to a handful of sentences, but I’ll try anyway. Butler is examining what might happen if 1) humans nearly destroy themselves—in this series,the tool is nuclear war and 2) what would be the cost of being saved by aliens who just happen to be observing them. In this book, she searches for the nub of what it means to be human, and how some people are unwilling to be anything else. There’s also the idea that humans without hierarchical systems revert to savagery pretty quickly and the threat that Earth will be destroyed when the Oankali leave, so the only chance humanity has is to move to Mars. And there’s loads of dystopia and confict, which will surprise to one who is familiar with Butler’s work. Can’t wait to get to the last book.

I want a movie about greek gods where hades isn’t the antagonist

By all accounts the antagonist in every Greek Gods movie should be Zeus’s dick. Nothing else causes as much murder and mayhem.

On my second day in the new town, I went to Best Buy to buy a telephone. In the store, I asked a salesperson, “Do you have old fashioned telephones as opposed to cellular phones?” He knew exactly what I meant and pointed me in the right direction.

It’s beyond ridiculous that you had to deal with this Roxane. I hope that douche loses his job over it.
