Gynomite’s Reading Room!

Really really really really solid advice on how you work at keeping your long term relationship healthy and happy from Psychology Today. Seriously. It involves work. It’s important. Read this. It’s great.

To promote the new game Dead Island Riptide, the dudes who made it thought it might be a fun idea to include a bloody severed woman’s torso in a bikini in the Collector’s Edition. This is either them being colossally stupid, or it’s a genius PR move meant to backfire. As an Indoor Kid listener pointed out on our Facebook page, “I didn’t even know there was a new Dead Island game, and now I do.”

A nice collection of emotional states that don’t have English language equivalents.

Cheaters in Japan can’t seem to embrace new technology, especially when Fujitsu’s 3 year old model hides their affairs. Once you designate one of your contacts as “secret”, this phone will hide their calls and texts from the phone- you only know a secret person has contacted you because the battery gauge will look slightly different. Genius and horrifying. Don’t worry, America, there’s a $5 app in America that hides text and calls from people you put on a list.

I loved the Delias catalog as a preteen and teen- and this was when you had to call in and speak to a person to make an order. The clothes were low quality, every item fit wildly differently, and yes, there were a ton of drawstring items. I still have one Delias item from my youth- a hot pink motorcycle jacket. It’s just insane enough for me to keep forever.

    If you look at my teenage journal, it’s mostly plastered with pictures of clothes I wanted from Delias. Pretty sure the two jean skirts I still own for some reason are from there. I also still own old copies of Sassy and YM I can’t part with. Making of a 90s hoarder.
