This review contains spoilers. 3.2 Mary and Martha A swallow does not make a summer and two data points are not a trend, but annoy me if that was not another hopeful episode of The story of the maid, Granted, it was about June pushing a cattle bullet into the gut and hand-burying a murder […]
I absolutely love Trigger. But it’s not easy to write. Mystery is a skill that I wouldn’t call mine. Trigger is a mystery. She’s asexual and there’s a lot of queer individuals in it. Far more than you’d give credit to a redneck area of Pennsylvania. Since most are still in the closet, there’s more […]
I don’t know if you’ve ever asked yourself “What are people for?” but it’s a question that comes up for me pretty often. Should I go to that party or should I do work at home; should I plan an event with 20 people or do a one-on-one… what do I want, what is the […]
“We start in Potions.” Sam lamented at Breakfast, as we checked our schedules. “Then we have Defence Against the Dark Arts with Umbridge.” I said, really not looking forward to today. The boys were laughing at Umbridge’s cardigan when I turned to Harry and saw that he didn’t look too happy either. “Is your day […]
By Dr. Pramila Srivastava That’s your best friend and your worst enemy – your own brain Fred Durst In this mechanical world order where we often find ourselves trapped in the acrimonious cycle of the tik-tok of the clock, where our each and every action by and large is dictated by clock hour and where […]
There are some stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age that still loom larger than life. Even if people have never seen a film starring said actors, their names are still iconic; Clark Gable, Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart. They float around in pop-culture references, harking back to an age that seems so far removed from our own. […]

by, Jo Carol Hebert Here’s a guessing game… Which of these three animals do you think is the oldest animal alive on land today (2019)? Is it Rubble, the Cat in England? Could it be Jonathan, the tortoise, on the island of St. Helena, in the South Atlantic Ocean? Or, maybe it is Fatou, an […]
On the second day of my internship last week, I was asked by someone how I got into videography. I gave her a basic explanation, but I also had to tell her I’ve never really thought out a coherent story about what got me interested in filming/editing. Where did my interest in this come from? […]
Letter submitted to Paso Robles City Councilmembers: Hi, Steve/Fred/Maria/Tom/Warren, we were shocked by your recent votes to ban short-term rentals in Paso’s R1-zone, which includes our vacation home. We found out and fell in love with Paso by chance: for years we’ve been traveling from the San Jose area to Los Angeles, without even hearing […]
I met up with the guy (let’s call him Fred) and it was neat!! He has gone to four things and seems to have a pretty good system for how to make friends beforehand (messaging people on fetlife who have put that they’re “maybe” going to a munch, for example). He described in a lot […]

You know, you may not hear “self-described overweight housewife obsessed with eating cookies” & think here comes that motivation I needed today, but the story of this housewife may be the most inspirational weight loss story of all time. It all started with a well-meaning compliment from a neighbor. You look amazing! Followed by When […]
As we headed north towards Carmel, the scenery was lovely: it changed from vineyards (going up and down the rolling hills) to “the flatlands” with strawberry fields…back to more vineyards. We arrived in Morro Bay, on the Pacific Ocean, famous for “Morro Rock” in the bay. Tanya had made reservations for us at The Galley […]
