Eff That Guy

The older I get, the more I resent being taught about the man whose holiday began this week in school but never being taught about the other side. I understand, sort of. I mean, if I had learned all of the stuff I know now I would probably have been a furious 10-year-old, and I guess no one wants that. Because honestly, that’s how I feel every time I even read that man’s name anymore. FURIOUS. He decimated an entire civilization–a peaceful civilization that welcomed him and his weary men when they landed–one that I can draw a straight line back to through my mother,...

So Needless to Say

Apparently I have things to say about television shows lately. So like my last post, this post comes with very strong spoiler warnings for both Season 4 of Veronica Mars and Season 4 of The Magicians. If you haven’t seen both of those season finales (or you just don’t care) look away now child of the light! I’m serious. Big spoilers here. Turn back before it’s too late! Okay, here we are in spoiler land. It’s nice here. The water is so warm. The reason I want to talk about both of these seasons at the same time is because of my last post. I spent quite a few...

We Used to be Friends…

So, I think it’s been long enough that a spoiler-filled analysis of Veronica Mars Season 4 is fair game, but just in case you haven’t seen it yet and would like to be unspoiled, turn back now! Last chance. I mean it. Okay, if you’re still here, I assume you have either seen all of season 4 or heard about it in advance and noped out of the season because you heard that Logan gets killed. Various parts of the internet were aflame afterwards and I can understand that impulse. Quite a few of my friends who were big VM fans had heard about the ending in advance and decided that...

Under Construction

So, as you may or may not have noticed, ye olde website is undergoing a bit of a change. I’ve imported all of the old posts to the new domain, but that means some links or other things may have broken in the process. I’ll be fixing these problems as I unearth them, but it’s likely to be a longish process. Also the look of the website will probably be in flux for the next little while as I settle on what I like going forward. In summary, stuff is likely to be weird for a little while, but I think it will all be worth it! Hugs and puppies, -C

Challenger Deep

I was looking at some historical speeches today and I happened to catch one I’d never heard before, but has quite a lot of childhood emotion wrapped up in it for me: Reagan’s speech following the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. It’s striking to me, while I’m no fan of Reagan’s in particular, that his love for this country and its institutions is so obvious in every line. And I want to say something to the schoolchildren of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle’s takeoff. I know it is hard to understand, but sometimes...
