I am pathologically vanilla about sex. My attitude towards power and domination is so phobic that I don't want that stuff anywhere near my sex life. The healthy part is that I have no desire to keep others from doing it. Here Cecilia Tan, who writes excellent fiction about BDSM, has written a thoughtful discussion making clear that the line between fantasy and reality defines consent.

An idiot who thinks there's a War on Christmas is making a movie about it. Charles Pierce is merciless.

Deep thinks about the two most interesting NFL rookies. My clouded crystal ball says that Michael Sam will do OK and Johnny Manziel will turn out to be Tim Tebow with lifestyle issues.

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

The purpose of media entertainment is to create fandoms. This approach is not unknown amongst us old-school fanzine types.

Ten books that made a lasting impression on me
Robert Heinlein: Stranger in a Strange Land
Shea & Wilson: Illuminatus
David Cole Gordon: Self-Love / Overcoming the Fear of Death
Joseph Heller: Catch-22
Alan Watts: The Book
Martin Gardner: Fads and Fallacies
Ursula K. Le Guin: The Dispossessed
Philip K. Dick: Eye in the Sky and others
G. Spencer Brown: Laws of Form (though I haven't managed to finish it)
James Joyce: Ulysses

ETA: And of course The Crying of Lot 49. These top 10 things never work.

Guess what can reduce opioid overdoses. Pity it's ritually unclean.

H.P. Lovecraft's prose is like Bob Dylan's voice: It's not good but sometime it's just right for what he's doing.

Everything you know is wrong.

Hello Kitty is not a cat. She is a little girl who has a cat that looks just like her.

I am old enough to remember when Ben Stein occasionally made sense. I am not, however, old enough to remember when any intelligent person gave credence to the image of the gigantic inherently scary black man made even more terrifying by the lethal effects of the Killer Drug Marijuana.
