Tew's Day! 
15th-Sep-2009 09:25 am
Happy birthday to volta!

Ugh. Ran out of Lunesta a day early, and so got very little sleep - and I have a big out-of-the-house day today.

Unrelated to anything
I'm certain that the people I fantasize about have no idea that I fantasize about them.

More about rape, in Spidey and otherwise
* io9 picks up on the story.
* "Only rapists can prevent rape".
* "Sexual assault prevention tips guaranteed to work!"

A few other notes:
* It is awesome that we are able to have this great in-depth conversation about rape and sexual assault without anyone saying "it's just a comic book." Because yes, this example is just a comic book, but it highlights some problems in our culture that are very worth talking about.
* It is awesome that most of the comments on this on other blogs are good ones.
* It is awesome that I was at BARCC last night talking about freakin' Spider-Man.

Link Soup
* Muppets and Gnosticism.
* Is is just me, or is Lady Gaga dressed like the Heat Miser? When Eminem seems concerned about your sanity, you maybe want to take a look at your life.
* I kinda want an action figure of me.
* Hey, locals - Talk Like a Pirate Day cabaret!

Daily Science
Long before Venus became a hot, dry and barren planet with a choking mass of carbon dioxide for an atmosphere, it might have once been home to shifting continents and an ocean of water, according to the latest data from a European space probe.

Using infrared images of the planet's southern hemisphere taken in 2006 and 2007 from the Venus Express probe, German astronomers say they have produced a map that reveals the planet's highland plateaus were likely once ancient continents surrounded by water.

I have a few posts to make... then a lunch not-a-date, and time-killing before Diesel.

I'm certain that the people I fantasize about have no idea that I fantasize about them.

My fantasy subjects remain oblivious, too.

We need a web community. :)

Pictures and stories of Lady Gaga amuse me to no end. You see, I went to the same snotty all girls Catholic high school as her, and was the year ahead of her. It's amazing to see how much she's changed since then.

Man, an action all my own of me for $129? As awesome as that is... I still dream to be a fantasy or action flick and get one of those, so everyone can play with me anyway they want!

When Eminem seems worried about what you're up to, it means you won and should keep doing what you're doing. She won that VMA award and everyone is talking about her as much as Mr. Gay Fish. That's the game, and she plays it well.

For "prevention tips that work" I thought it was going to say "lock yourself securely into a room and never have physical contact with anyone ever." Heh.

Hey, waitaminnit... is the "prevention tips that work" a rape joke that's actually funny? (And respectful, too?) Huh.
15th-Sep-2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah! Sort of an anti-rape joke.

I kind of want an action figure, too.
Lady Gaga is ... uh, I'm not sure I have words for that.
