How to talk about Occupy Wall St →
This is probably the best examination of the protests that has yet been written. A short excerpt from the whole thing: If Occupy Wall Street is to be permitted any meaning at all, it is as deixis. Deixis takes place when a rhetorician points to something (figuratively or actually) without giving it a name (“here” and “that one there” are deictic terms). A deictic gesture changes the direction of...

THIS TOTALLY WARRANTS ALL CAPS! HOLY SHIT This is either the greatest troll of all time or…. or……. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT!
I miss Arrested Development. So I did a big... →
Read the whole blog post here Dear Puffin, The Arrested Development movie has been in the works for ages and ages (and ages), and much like Dance of Dragons, I won’t really believe it’s happening until I’m actually sitting in a movie theater watching the credits roll. But there have been some interesting rumors flying around, like ScreenRant’s highly dubious scoop from an unnamed source who...
New blog post: Giant Doctor Who roundup to... →
Read the whole thing here Dear Puffin, To celebrate this weekend’s return of Doctor Who, I have put together another great big Doctor Who roundup. Some people may remember the last one. It was…. pleasing to me. Last time I did a roundup because I could’t watch the episode due to a bad case of Overdue Essay. This time I suspect I won’t be able to watch it due to Hurricane Irene, which is making...
Guys, the hurricane is heading right for my house. I mean seriously RIGHT FOR MY HOUSE. Everyone send up a little prayer if you can spare one, and pray that my childhood home isn’t under water at this point next week.

New blog post Read it here Dear Puffin, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my fianceè, the love of my life, the inspiration for 80% of my worst ideas, Richard Handl. Richard and I planned to be wed next month, but his pending incarceration in Sweden put a hitch in our plans.

New blog post: Renaissance celebrity portraits →
New blog post! Read it here Dear Puffin, As you know, I’m kind of an art nerd. Hence my obsession with poster designs andstuff. I’m also deeply enamored with mashups.

So this was right up my street: Modern Renaissance, renaissance portraits of modern celebrities (although plenty of these stray far fat away...

Guest blog post: Review of X-Men First Class →
Dear PuffinThe wonderful Tortefeasor has sent us her thoughts on X-Men: First Class. She pretty much nailed all the things I hated about it. Now I know that you liked it (I still don’t know why) but I freaking hated it, and Torte’s critique is right on the money (Money that I wish I could get back because I can’t believe I spent $10 on that piece of shit movie.)Ladies and gentlemen, please give a...

New blog post here Dear Puffin I know you are a big fan of urban exploration, so I think you’ll get a big kick out of this book, which was written by an urban explorer, as well as the making-of video that the author made. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children incorporates vintage photos, not just as illustration, but as integral elements of the plot. How does this tie into urban...
