Martin Shkreli may be the most hated man in America right now, and rightfully so. A quick summary of what he did to catch you up: he bought the rights to Daraprim, a medicine used to treat cancer and AIDS patients, and he raised the price per pill from $13.50/ pill to $750/pill. This is […]Read More Money or Life?
Photo courtesy of Flickr.com CC To me, someone believing the old cliche that “women aren’t funny” is one of the most annoying and frustratingly stupid things ever. It’s a misconception that’s still being fought against, but now with the help of more female and feminist comedians than ever.Read More Comedy and Feminism: Mortal Enemies, or Best Friends?
I’m a gamer and damn proud. You won’t catch me toting a DS waiting to update my Animal Crossing town or feed my Nintendogs. I won’t spend hours in front of my tv wasting the brilliance that is the outdoors.

Today fire is […]Read More The Millennium Trilogy: Firing Up the Upheaval
The conception of this post was one part luck and seven parts desperation. Last week I experienced for the first time in my life, an extreme case of writer’s block. Having gone through seven drafts of ideas, each of poor enough quality or caliber to warrant dismissal, I was at my wits end. With hours […]Read More The Millennium Legacy: Dragon Tattoos and Social Taboos
