Gynomite’s Reading Room!

If you wanna know what it’s like to be at a Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, check out these pictures from our one year anniversary show, done by Robyn Von Swank and Tyler Ross. They do a great job of captured backstage, in-store, in-room and onstage antics.

Breakfast from around the world! (I have been and always will be obsessed with breakfast.)

Oh look, it’s a brand new Indoor Kids with gamer, host, and model Chloe Dykstra!

This is a good list- the best minimalist videos of all time, from ONTD! (D’Angelo, anyone?)

Halloween Traditions That Can Never Die.

Happy Halloween from Tim Curry and me!

(If you don’t know, this is a musical number from the 80s movie The Worst Witch, and it is hands-down the best part of the film. But really, you should know that.)

Allie Brosh is back! Hyperbole and a Half! I’ve missed her so much! Go get some!

This Hobbit reunion made me soooooo happy.

An interview with the guy who invented the Guy Fawkes/V For Vendetta mask. Fun!

Two ladies I have a lot of respect for got TV deals, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that networks won’t destroy the genius of Tracy McMillan and Julie Klausner!

You know who’s aged ridiculously well? Ian Ziering! Nice work Sanders!

My latest post at xoJane about the best bad horror movies to watch at parties!

An odd essay at The Guardian about how goth seems to be the one subculture that you can grow old with…. although I kinda feel like it doesn’t really say anything, except that it’s okay for goths to have jobs. But read it.

From Alexandra Dal:

Pictures from my life.

Kumail and I, apparently not having fun at The Simpsons Ride.

 

This is the fish that I ordered at Jitlada yesterday. I was not expecting a two foot long Bass. I ate a corner of it and the fine people at Jitlada shoved it into a box for me.

 

This is Bagel, and she is annoyed at me for kissing her paws.

Here’s my first post at Huffington Post Weddings! It’s about the things that do and don’t change with marriage.

This is a really funny essay at The New Yorker about why Coldplay has become our musical punching bag. Plus there’s good points to be made about what happens when EVERYONE likes a band.

A sad, honest look at how and why tiny coffeehouses in NYC fail- at Slate.

This week’s Indoor Kids, about scary video games with guest Blair Butler!

Being a closed off asshole makes you secretly loveable and other bad relationship advice we learn from the movies. I’m so down with this list it hurts.

This just in: Jon Bon Jovi’s the best guy on earth.

This still makes me laugh, and I often queue it up while we’re playing Arkham City.

Forever something.

October 23, 2011 at 7:06 pm (my life)

A few years ago, I exited a marriage that was not working. I don’t mean to speak lightly of it- it was a very difficult thing to do, and a decision that took a lot out of me. It’s also something I don’t need to rehash here. Once I’d moved out and settled into an apartment with a roommate, I looked around and took stock of my situation: I was living in Chicago while my entire family was in North Carolina, I had barely any friends, and some of the friends I did have were not the most positive people to be around.

One thing I did have going for me was Jamie, my coworker and new friend. The thing you should know about me is that I often gravitate towards women who I am slightly jealous of for whatever reason. I befriend the women I covet, and I end up becoming a better person by being around them. I hope they get something out of being friends with me. Anyway, Jamie is one of the most gorgeous, dynamic, positive human beings I’ve ever met, and holy shit she can dress. She’s amazing. Jamie and I became fast friends and started spending all of our time together, which was the best.
