My preference would be to work for a local-area publisher in fiction, but I’ll take anything within my wide and broad definition of the “publsihing industry” (magazines, reference, everything in between etc.) If you have any advice, or have any contacts to literary publications, magazines, or publishers, and would be…
“Marie Holmes made national headlines last February after winning a massive $188 million Powerball jackpot. After taxes, she walked away with an $88 million lump sum payment.”
China’s holding a cremation constest to crown the countrys best cremator, in an effort to destigmatize the cremation process. The government hopes this method of dealing with the deceased will eventually gain popularity in the over crowded country. From what I gathered, despite the fact that half of the Chinese…
Sorry for coming off like those annoying Gawker ads disguised as actual articles. But I recently lost my job(don’t worry start a new one on Jan 4th). And being low on funds cause you to think of creative ways to save money. Plus some of you may be looking for ways to cut spending due to holiday spending.
(Here’s a last minute, disjointed write-up about the holidays, and what it’s doing to me emotionally. It was rushed, but cathartic. Warning...it may be tl;dr for some)
*Note #1: Due to the overcrowded field of 1000+ entrants for the Pissing Contest I decided to post to Crosstalk. While technically this isn’t the craziest lie I ever believed, it was the first time I realized people actually do lie to little kids*
I usually don’t get too excited about Google’s Doodles(especially the static Doodles), but I have to admit this has to be among their Top 10 Doodles Of All Time. The interactive Doodles are always a fan favorite. But I’m almost certain that even those who aren’t really into Doodles, or Classical music for that matter,…
(sorry if this is tl;dr, but it all just came pouring out if me, and didn’t have much time to edit for length and clarity)
Most of Chicago police force ordered into uniform as city prepares for video release.

1) Somebody put in a lot of eyestrain and a lot of midnight oil, trying to pinpoint that o-so-far-out object. We all know who that is. May he r.i.p.
2) We *said* it was…
A chiwawa, a doxin, and a poodle show up at a bbq. All of them take a shot at getting at the meat that’s on the grill.
They jump and jump and jump, but it’s just no good.
“We’ll never do it”, said the chiwawa.
“Nope, not at this rate”, said the doxin.
“May as well forget it, “ said the poodle. “The steaks are just too…
Look at how the morning sun
provides the wakeup call.
Look how there’s a tombstone
waiting for us all.
When I left the navy, I was overwrought and confused by all the changes that had happened in the civilian world. You might say it was a bit of a culture shock. No one cared much for a navy man’s antics in the wider scheme of things. Mostly it was the drinking-while- submerged bits. They couldn’t understand why I’d…
Yay!!! But, yeah... I don’t know how anyone can support stereotyping and call themselves progressive. But, white feminists find a way. Always.
I created this graphic to illustrate how it’s important to have three square mules a day.
I have an idea for a movie about some geeks gone batshit crazy. I call it The Devil’s RegEx. There are mostly Linux users involved, that’s why I have it subtitled as ‘Repository Of Lost Souls’
Anybody want to help with the script?
In the latest episode of Blank on Blank, which takes old interviews with interesting people and then animates them, author Ray Bradbury explains his fear of driving, the importance of friendship, his attachment to Mars, and why a writer should feel an emotional attachment to their stories.
though it’s often my goal
to look swanky and such
