Some days, it’s easy to see social media, perhaps most especially Twitter, as a giant Milgram experiment.
The above document was sent to me by a male reader of my site who’s quite stunned by what he read. I’m not.
They’re fairly organized and are actively calling for articles and research to highlight just how oppressed they are:
"Cite sources that show Leigh Alexander’s EXTREME racism, misandry, and bias towards Intel’s largest consumer-level base (Gamers)… If you have an academic position, tenure, are part of a research group AND have an interest in contributing NEW PAPERS that go against the current Feminist Inquisition…"
DiGRA = Digital Games Research Association.
We all know what consumer base they’re about as well.
But it’s all about ethics in journalism and research, right?

Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our favorite cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate anticipates some truly terrifying Halloween horrors.
The horror, the horror
Robots, I don’t even know. I’ve been all over the place this week, and I’ve been so frustrated and pent-up. I can actually feel myself bristle when things happen around me, I’m avoiding certain sites, I feel anxious and angry when topics come up in conversation around me, I’m twitchy in public spaces. I’m carrying this constant low-level defensiveness that’s manifesting as frustration and aggression and it’s just seeping out of me sometimes. My partner had to ask me this weekend to please be a little less mean to them and I just sort of lost it because I don’t want to be mean it’s just sort of happening to me and i hate it.
I wish I was made of spikes and quills.
Feelings, I have these
New The Librarians Trailer (x)
I’m so emotionally conflicted. Its everything I wanted from Warehouse 13 but there is no Myka Bering & bisexual H.G. Wells and this pains me.
But it’s LEVERAGE meets WAREHOUSE and it’s done by JOHN ROGERS and if anyone knows anything about me, it’s that I worship that man. He also knows his audience and more about fan engagement that I’ve seen out of any showrunner, ever. I suspect that come December 7th, this will be a an all Librarians blog.
Yes please, now please!
Did they seriously use the TROLOLOLOLO song at the end there? Please someone say yes.
Maybe this should be a group viewing thing? zordac? I have the movies…
I have no idea what this is but I have cable and dvr now and the title is right.
You’ve never seen the trilogy of movies starring Noah Wyle as some sort of Indiana Jones style librarian? My family was so darn pleased to give me the DVDs as a bday present when I started lib school. I’ve… never actually seen them either :)
I’ve heard of them but am meh on Wylie. But the ensemble cast…maybe. Wish there was more diversity in the ensemble though.

Is this real frequentlydefiant? Is it?
Oh my yes. One of the Duchovny-directed episodes
I did like Pillow Talk as a teen. Is there a bathtub monster? Does it make bathtub gin? IS IT A SNAKE? IS IT A SNAKE THAT LIVES IN BATHTUB DRAINS AND DRINKS BATHTUB GIN?!??
Starting work on script for BATHTUB GIN SNAKE on Monday
(There are numerous drain monsters, but not in this episode. In this one they go Hollywood.)
