Marziponies! · 8:06pm Saturday

I love marzipan.  This Christmas, my older sister brought me back some marzipan from Hungary, where she was teaching a course on... um, something.  I can't keep her courses straight because she teaches college courses on speech pathology, linguistics, neuroscience, the history of silent movies, and anime.  Often in exotic foreign cities like Budapest, Istanbul, or Vienna (although for some reason the one she visits most is Sarajevo).  It's pretty much the best job in the world.

The Last Jedi (no spoilers) · 6:50am Dec 19th, 2017

As resident curmudgeon, it's my duty to watch every eagerly-anticipated sequel to or remake of something made in the 1980s and tell you exactly why it sucks.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has an audience rating of 56% on Rotten Tomatoes. That's tied with Phantom Menace for the lowest rating out of the entire franchise.

I have basically one thing to say...

Art--for art's sake, autotelic, autonomous, and autopoietic · 3:05am Nov 29th, 2017

There are three confusing phrases used frequently in art theory that all seem to mean the same thing, but don't.  They have a long history of being rhetorically abused, because people are more certain that they all mean something good, than they are about what they mean.  Many people have tried to [win arguments without making them] by changing the meanings of these phrases.   Today they've been adapted to use as a shell game, so people can avoid being called out on their contradictory beliefs

Bad Horse's Bad Advice--Avoiding comparisons · 9:02pm Nov 6th, 2017

For some reason, B_25 thought it might a good idea to ask me for advice.  The best advice I could give would probably be not to ask an unemployed ponyfic writer living on oatmeal and fimfiction notifications for advice.  But I could hardly turn down an invitation to indoctrinate someone with my opinions.  So here is the first installment of

The Deadliest Day of the Year is the Safest · 4:51am Oct 5th, 2017

From Sperling's Best Places:

Kids have a greater chance of being fatally injured by a car on Halloween than any other day of the year, including the Fourth of July and New Year’s Day. State Farm®, the nation’s leading auto insurer, teamed up with research expert, Bert Sperling of Sperling’s BestPlaces, to better understand the risk kids face as they take to the streets in search of treats.
