Sep 30 2013

It’s always kinda tough to write the weekend OTP because by the time I get around to writing about this stuff it’s been a few days since it appeared on my RSS reader so it’s hard to keep up the enthusiasm in the same way I do during the week with stuff I just saw 30 minutes ago. Oh well, it’s Sunday so it’s time for the most exciting television event of the year tonight anyway. I’m going to see Comedy Bang Bang’s live tour tonight. I am absolutely certain that’s what everybody else is talking about when they talk about tonight’s huge TV event. Okay bye.

Some may say that the matching tie and handkerchief are for the…
I’ve kind of stopped posting fashion blog stuff on here but I think this Put This On entry has the only fashion rule you’ll ever need: nobody cares if you commit a fashion faux-pas if you’ve got a portrait of yourself as a sea captain with octopus legs.

NBC has bought a TV show based on my story about psychics in love
Yay my favorite Charlie Jane story is maybe going to be a TV show. I’d certainly watch the hell out of it.

Beautiful Destroyed Structures of the Modern Age
I guess the real lesson here is that you should stop building cool looking structures made mostly of glass because they will just get destroyed in a fire.
