Alright, let's see what we have today.

I'm going to warn you about following the link in this article.  The thinking of so backwards, and so full of logical fallacies that I almost got an aneurysm.  Not to even mention the leaps of judgement and total void of logic.  I think I may have already gotten a nosebleed.

It was a bad day for me, but this made me feel better:

So DC and Marvel own the copyright to the term "Superhero."  That's weird.

Need some inspiration?  Check this out:

So this of course is the big news of the day.  Because it's a man in one of the big four American sports.  Yes, it's a bit sexist, ethnocentric and rude to other professional sports, but based on reach alone, it's a big deal.  And here's the fascinating (and heartfelt and touching) behind the scenes of the article.

In case you missed it, this is the cover of "Boston" Magazine, made from shoes from runners of the marathon:

Oh happy day, you can use your XBox Kinect to order Pizza Hut.

The summer movies coming up:

That's it for now, have a great one!

Alright, let's see what we have today.  First up, the second season of Zombies, Run! was just released.  I'm still working my way through their training program and season 1, but it really is an awesome way to get into running:

The Chicago Tribune bought the staff of The Boston Globe lunch.

Well this is pretty amazing:

A one night stand stretches into two days...because of the Boston bombings.

The Onion is coming to Amazon video, and I couldn't be more excited:

Hopefully this link works (it may or may not), but the Chicago Tribune takes a look at the state of American fantasy.

There have been some good gun control ads, I think this is one of the best:

It's a little trippy, and if you get motion sickness, it may not be for you, but a really cool video made from images from Google Earth.  Also a great way to showcase the persistence of motion.

That's it for now, have a great one!

Alright, let's see what we have going on today.  First up, of course, thoughts go out to Boston.  I was running tonight at the gym, and not that it did a bit of difference, but it was nice to run for them.

This capped off the week with the DOMA and Prop 8 cases, and of course, it's always fun when there's alcohol involved:

 This judge is awesome: his cell phone went off during court, so he held himself in contempt and paid the fine.

Here are instructions for making a picnic table with a built in cooler, perfect for wine or beer for a picnic.  Awesome DIY project, and I can certainly think of certain family members/friends who would love this!

 

A good comic:

California is moving to remove tax-exempt status from charities that discriminate based on sexual orientation or religion, which would make the BSA councils pay tax.

The Church of England slowly moves forward, suggesting that they allow same-sex blessings.  Now, to be fair, the marriage equality legislation moving through Parliament specifically outlaws same-sex matrimony in the Church of England, and the Church says matrimony itself should only be between a man and a women, so they have some room to grow.  It's weird having a state religion.

That's it for now, but I'll be back with more.

Alright, let's see what we have today.  First up, Run For Your Lives is coming up.  I did it last year as a zombie and it's a great time, if you want to join me as a zombie (or meet up afterwards at the party), let me know:

Jimmy Carter has a great essay about equality.

Robyn Miller talked about Myst at this year's GDC.  A good friend was at the talk and sent me notes right after it ended and I am forever jealous.  Forever.

I saw this on Facebook, and giggled.  You know, since I'm five:

So far, I've been as impressed as I can be with the new Pope.  He's even reached out specifically to the Church of England, and it rumored that he will be the honorary chair of the 2018 Lambeth Conference (although honestly, those are contentious enough as it is, it may cause a lot of added drama).  Guess we'll have to see what the new Archbishop of Canturbery will do as well.

The man who is Virginia's attorney general, and running for Governor, is arguing that sodomy should remain illegal in their state.  And just so you know, even though anti-sodomy laws have been struck down by the Supreme Court because they were only used to invade the privacy and prosecute the LGBT community, it technically is any non procreative sex.  Strangely, he won't answer any questions about his own sex life when asked, you know, just to see if he's complying with the laws he's fighting to keep on the books.

And lastly, awesome video showcasing music from the Legend of Zelda:

Let's see what I've seen in the world of communication lately:

Here we go everyone, let's see what I have today.  First up, the best news ever:

And following up in the Disney line, scary, scary anatomy drawings of their characters.

Chris Kluwe once again knocks it out of the park.  Have a read and take a look at the video where he discusses "distractions" in the locker room.

And Justice Ginsburg also created a meme during the marriage equality trials last week.  I mean, she herself didn't, as far as I know, but her quote led tho this:

That's all I have for now, but I'll be back soon with more.  Have a great one!

One of my two (I think it's two at this point) annual posts.

Short update today, but I'll be back with more soon.

First up, today was the day Prop 8 was argued at the Supreme Court.  The New York Times has a nice flowchart as to what the outcome will be.

And if you didn't read it, there is a great article over at The Stranger about acceptance, love and bigotry.

And finally, this really cool desk made from a piano:

Alright, let's see what I have this time.

First up, pretty amazing:

Bill Cosby himself is running polls to vote on the best sweaters from The Cosby Show.  That's pretty cool.

KitKat does very well in social media, but gets schooled by Oreo, of course.

So awesome to see this song performed on Jimmy Fallon:

Starbucks CEO tells shareholders they'll do the right thing and support marriage equality, and if they don't like, it to sell.  Bravo.

And as we entre the final days before arguing before the Supreme Court, the American Academy of Pediatrics, outlines why it supports marriage equality.  They said the timing wasn't planned, but honestly, it's a bit suspect.  Hopefully that does not diminish their statement.

DuckTales is being remastered and rerelased.  And I heard that if it goes well, we'll see more like this.  Cool nostalgia, although I hope the video game industry doesn't turn into the movie industry, all old ideas:

That's it for now, have a great one!

Short update today.  First up, the big news here in Pittsburgh is Luke v. UPMC.  Ginny talks about it, and you should give it a read.

Sounds like something I came up with: replacing guns with thumbs up.

Chiptole has cancelled their sponsorship of a Scouting event in Utah because, you guessed it: the BSA discriminates against children.

And in a week, the arguments will take place at the Supreme Court against Prop 8 and DOMA.  It's a big deal, and to help support it, a young man wrote a letter to Chief Justice Roberts, who has adoptive children:

That's it for now, have a great one!
