I agree. This is how I like to work in a nut shell. Some days I chase a rabbit down the hole, other days I just observe how damn cute the rabbit is. I don’t know if it’s good or bad. I kind of just float from one day to the next, creatively speaking. Sometimes I even get serious and report.

I think some people might prefer just the smart stuff or just the silly stuff, the reports of the profiles, but I suspect the majority of people like all of it. Not all of what I do, I’m not quite that self-delusional, but people all sorts of stuff.

I’m telling you, this dude understood what it would be like to write on the internet way before the internet.

Though I stand by the headline as a ‘90s kid, there’s evidence lower in this post that today’s kids who love to play games are pretty adorable, too.

“Also worth noting that it’s treated totally nonchalantly by a celeb.”

That is an awesome point. Hard to imagine this even ten years ago.

Kim Kardashian’s sex video was sold without her permission to Vivid Entertainment, a studio that made money of her image.

A woman controlling her image and career is not anti-feminist.

I think you’d find this piece informative.

I just love how casual the game is about sexuality and relationships. It rewards trying out many different relationships.

I think the Kim game deserves some credit for doing all that and not having the focus be killing people or saving the planet. Smart, fun games about fandom and fashion are few and far between, despite both being significant to many people’s lives.

Oh I will clarify. I was talking about my own limited language capabilities.

If there’s one sanctuary for Michael Bay’s filmography, I hope it’s Polygon. We’re having an internal book/movie club convo this week about the brilliant longform article turned surreal film, Pain and Gain.

I am ashamed I wrote this entire post without mentioning Vanilla Ice’s best song, Go Ninja Go.

Sometimes you just need some old school Sandler in your life.

A true, salient point: I would not be funny without DockJaw or Loren.

This is a really interesting point. We come in contact with more hate because of the internet, but the internet has also made it markedly easier to fight hate and expedite reform and awareness.

That’s great to hear!
