Today is my last day at Six Apart. It's been 3.5 years with an outstandingly clever and humane group of unforgettable friends. I dedicate this Apperceptive/Six Apart-NYC montage to all of you. [WARNING] This is a long, photo-intensive, inside-joke-ridden post.... Continue »

When I shop, I hunt. I can't even shop successfully with a close friend -- I know what I want and there is zero time for dithering or even conversation. I also have particular style tastes and am very tall,... Continue »

Logos for women's groups always roll my eyes since they overemphasize whimsical femininity and underemphasize our strengths. The collection from "Squiggles, Trees, Ribbons and Spirals: My Collection of Women’s Health, Beauty and Support Group Logos as the Stages of Life... Continue »

OMFG EDIT. Joe from I Am A TV Junkie offers up this first hand experience with the pants-crapping joy that one experiences in the presence of a TV goddess. Um... again I can only say: wow. WOW. FroggysPhotos Flickr stream is dedicated to celebrity appearance events where our betters briefly step down from their pedestals on high and walk among us mortals. You know, comic conventions and the like. The result is pure comedy gold. I could spend the whole day looking at pictures of people more socially awkward than I am. In this photo, the nerd (left) and Morena... Continue »

There I was, working from home on a day where our office had no water nor internet, planning new features for a fine blogging platform, when, all of a sudden, my droopy dream pop beats were interrupted by my landlord... Continue »

Scene: Our house is on a corner lot, with no fence or wall to obscure the view of either street as it approaches the intersection. I am standing idly on the front step, holding Jane, who had become fractous indoors. Two moderately glossy cars pull up, one right after the other, from the west, and pause at the stop sign to my right. The drivers are of a similar type, somehow very Southern Californian: fifty-something men, lightly tanned, well kept but casually dressed, hair silver rather than merely gray. They are perhaps music executives, or successful tax attorneys, or character... Continue »

So last night, I was on the hunt for a TV. I found one on Craig's List that looked promising and after a few emails, I told the guy I'd be on my way over to check it out. He lives in the Haight, which is a short drive over from where I live in the Mission. I don't have a car though, so I started heading over there on my scooter. Knowing that despite my incredible ability to move large objects on my scooter (I once moved everything in my apartment to a new place using only a '79... Continue »

Avatar. AVATAR AVATAR AVATAR. I watched this movie over the weekend, and, boy oh boy am I glad I waited months to see this movie because this thing was a HUGE letdown. I know there was a ton of backlash... Continue »

This Old Spice commercial is undeniably awesome. I'd like to thank BUST for this post (and their awesome critique) and their ongoing non-snarky feminist analyses of pop culture. <3 Continue »

Who doesn't love the impressive social conclusions made every day by the ingenius data minings of Hunch? Every quantitative-data-loving individual should, and I'm pointing my finger at you, weirdo blog reader checking this post out for the graphs. (We have... Continue »

To show my understanding of plot, today, I have drawn the key elements of where I am in the story. I last left you with Thorin and his prisoner game , so the one thing you need to know is that Bilbo is not imprisoned, but is running around the Wood-elf compound invisibly (hence the dotted lines). I think my reaction as an unbarrelled dwarf would involve more symbols, color, and violence. Continue »

here's what i've got so far. Gandalf shows up at Bilbo's house like a creepy old uncle, then Gandalf and a horde of dwarves crash Bilbo's house, eat all of his food and drink all of his wine like a big bacchnalian scene from Animal House sans femmes. There are more than a few jokes about how Bilbo would make a better grocer than a burgler. Unclear at this point why anyone thinks Bilbo would be a burglar, because he's still meant to be the character from Babe the Pig. The adventure begins, but Bilbo prefers to be at home... Continue »
