Reaching Back: Human Connection in the Always Connected Image

Reaching Back: Human Connection in the Always Connected

  One vast criticism I hear about our culture is that we are¬†always on. We’ve got our phones, our tablets, our pads and laptops and screens, screens, screens, screens. Connection is in wires and out in the air around us. You can walk down a street in Nowhere, Iowa with…

What’s Funny? I’ll Tell You What’s NOT.

    Trigger warning. This post will involve frank discussion of violence and rape. When I was growing up, I used to laugh so hard at Pepe Le Pew. Stinky things are funny. They’re even funnier when they chase you. Farts are funny. Skunks are funny. I honestly don’t remember…

“The Drive to Write”

Welcome to Thorsday, where I stomp around and pretend that I’m a Norse god of thunder! Thorsday exists for whatever lightning bolts strike me during the week, and let me just tell you, gentle viewers, have I got a lighting bolt to the cranium this week. A quick note: for…

Why Blackout? STOP SOPA/PIPA

If you attempt to visit Wikipedia today (or Google, or WordPress, or I Can Has Cheezburger, or any number of other participating websites), you won’t be able to miss the blackout. What is it? The blackout is a protest against censorship on the internet. The proposed legislation of the Stop…
