More Christian Family Values

The godtards are fond of claiming that nonheterosexuals adopting children is bad for the kids.

As bad as this, I wonder?

An evangelical preacher killed his wife several years ago and stuffed her body in a freezer after she caught him abusing their daughter, according to police and court documents.
Anthony Hopkins murdered his wife in 2004 after she caught him fucking… Continue

If you Must Have an Official Religion

...it should probably be Buddhism.

In the face of right-wing fungelical squeaking about transgendered individuals and the bathrooms they should or should not be permitted to use, a school in Thailand has actually built a separate WC for its transgendered students.

What I sit in awe of is not the fact that the…

Yep.

This about sums it up. Lovestory and tragedy in seven minutes.

Must've Been Bad Karma

In yet another example of the perverse sense of humor of the universe, an Indiana Wiccan stabbed herself in the foot with a sword while conducting a good-luck ritual.

MSNBC shares with us the story of Katherine Gunther, of Lebanon, IN. While performing the ceremony under the light of a full moon1 in a cemetery — which includes, apparently, repeatedly thrusting the point of a sword into the ground — she…

Calorie Lab Posts Lies, Defends Itself by Attacking the Messenger

"Calorie Lab" is a website that ordinarily publishes more or less useful commentary on diets and diet plans, generally skewing to the reality-based side, but this last week they published a very credulous workup of Stanley Burroughs and his "cleanse" diet plan here.

The article presents the diet in a more or less legitimate sounding light until the last few grafs. That was extremely troubling…

Aeria Gloris

Inner Universe by Origa



This is the source for the opening theme from Ghost in the Shell: Stand-Alone Complex, and is distinctly house in its stylings. I like it because the title sequence is filled with Major Kusanagi's dreams; you see what a girl, whose body was lost to her into adulthood until there was nothing human about her but her spinal column and brain, sees as she sleeps. The dreams of a cyborg. A girl who never had the time to change into woman; it was just… Continue

Grandmother of Dr. Who

Or not, perhaps. Delia Derbyshire was apparently responsible for the mix of Ron Grainer's Dr. Who theme in 1963, but damn, she did some other innovative, amazing work in the analog era.

Hit this link and listen to her piece under the 'Timeless' header; or just hit this.

That was last week, right?

On the Quantity of Methane in Unicorn Emissions

Crossposted from my pad.



Yes, another reply to a riposte from James Lileks of the Minnesota Star-Tribune. If it keeps up at this rate I might have to add another category.

Thursday he was in rare form, and opened with a nice salvo:

Another day in the Land of Inversion, where the obvious is not an option.…
