After some careful research, I’ve decided that my love of pop music, as much as I genuinely adored the 80s, perhaps peaked in 1990. Look at this Billboard Top 100 Songs of that year and tell me I’m wrong.
A new Indoor Kids episode is up today, and we talk all about Mass Effect with iam8bit’s Nick Ahrens!
This is a great collection of bands being caught, or being forced, to lip sync. The Nirvana one is glorious to watch.

This is a great little story about how TV shows get their names. That 70s Show got its name exactly how I’d always hoped!
In her former life, Emily “Gynomite” Gordon was a couples and family therapist licensed in 2 1/2 states. In this life, she’s a freelance fighter of your emotional woes with Ask Gynomite. Write her at firstname.lastname@example.org- all emails stay confidential. Today, Gynomite takes on dating a friend.
I was used to dating every girl who just said yes, but what i really wanted was to search for that girl who wanted to say yes. I now believe I have found that girl, and she is my current girlfriend. She and I have been really great friends for about a year, with many similar interests, similar understanding levels of those interests, and give or take a few friends, we have the same friend circle. I just wanted to know if you had any general advice for dating someone who was a really good friend before?
Wow, you managed to move a girl from the friend zone into the girlfriend zone? Good for you! That’s a rare move! But now, you have to figure out new ways to treat her!
I haven’t done one of these in a while, so let’s get into it. These aren’t required “assignments”, but merely suggestions for shaking up your life a little tiny bit.

Yes, I saw the Simpsons Game of Thrones opening, and yes, I loved it!
Cops in Virginia are trying a brand new thing with drug dealers called Drug Market Intervention. They’re starting to realize that arresting dealers 1) only puts more poor people in jail, 2) is semi-pointless because those drug dealers can and will be replaced tomorrow and 3) fosters distrust of the cops in poor communities. So instead, they invite the drug dealers to a meeting and offer to help them get out of the life, rather than arrest them. I’m not sure exactly how it’ll work, but I at least appreciate that the cops are trying something different.
And on a different note, I was beyond excited to see my former burlesque dance teacher on The Daily What yesterday. Michelle L’Amour is a heart stoppingly amazing teacher, dancer, and all around badass, and she used to make her ass do this in class on a regular. Enjoy.
