I would like them to know that from someone who is ninety-four years young, it is fun to be old."  With such an effervescent presence in the world and a passport that has been stamped to death, Zelda is very much alive! She captivates humanity with her dramatic ensembles ... Read More
Every year when the temperature starts to decrease I find myself fumbling through albums that beckon story telling, invite group vocals and paint dream like images of autumn breezes flowing through my moth eaten flannel. Now I do recognize that many people do this all year round, but there is something so pleasing about seasonal record listening. Nothing says fall like the crunching of leaves and twigs beneath feet that are frolicking to a shoe gaze, ... Read More
  Ever since the international phenomenon Snakes on a Plane, I have been wary of [Animal]s on a [Object I Use]. It's a potential recipe for terror. However, my mind has been changed thanks to this video. Observe a pair of kittens slipping on a slide and their mama's valiant attempts to rescue them. Uh-dorable.     You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
This phrase was originally used to describe unfairness regarding minority education, but it could easily be used to explain the current climate of women in politics. Blame Sarah Palin, but it seems that women who want attention for their campaign are becoming more like parodies of America than actual leaders. There is a leap before you look, celebratory ignorance being championed by Christine O’Donnell and Sarah Palin that seems indicative of America ... Read More
  As a predominantly male-based sport, skateboarding can be difficult for girls and women to really get into.

The popular YouTube internet campaign, "It Gets Better", was started in September of this year by columnist Dan Savage, as a way to send the message to young teenagers being bullied for their homosexuality that there is life beyond high school, and it does get better. In his own video message, he explained that he was raised in a "very Catholic" environment and was picked on for being "obviously gay". He wants today's teens to know, however, that life goes on, the ... Read More
Make all your Lisa Frank fantasies come true with this Robot Unicorn Attack game from Adult Swim. It combines all your favorite freaky geekdom into one bright and mythical experience filled with rainbows, fairies, fierce galloping iron robot unicorns, and majestic flying sequences. You are the unicorn running and jumping from grass cliff to grass cliff, shooting through the air and collecting little rainbow pixies along the way, but beware for that ...

Obtaining tickets (translation: promising to review in exchange for) to a sold out Kathy Griffin show is pretty exciting. Having realistic expectations for the seats being in the janitor's closet, and then coming to find that they are in the THIRD ROW is cause for me to take time out from the last full day of my first ever trip to Portland to brag about it via blog, which I'm doing now from the publishing department of Portland State University. When planning this ... Read More
