How to win the “hearts and minds” of dickwolf-loving folks

That was absolutely beautiful, and actually changed my mind about the Dickwolf shirts. Internet confession: I was the one who yelled “bring them back”. I didn’t do it because I hate feminists. I didn’t do it because I hate women. I did it because I felt like those shirts were a justified “fuck you” to […]

Trisha’s Cosplay Pic of the Day: Princess Leia at San Diego Comic Con

A long time ago, on an Internet far, far away, Carrie Goldman’s parenting blog “Portrait of an Adoption” was swarmed by Star Wars fans who wanted to show her daughter Katie that it was totally okay for girls to like the movie and series. Now, Goldman is at San Diego Comic Con to moderate the […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: “The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage”

If you were to ask me where you could find a webcomic which tells the tale of Charles Babbage’s self-proclaimed war against street musicians, I wouldn’t have had any recommendations for you… until now. With its tongue lodged firmly within its cheek, I present to you this short story arc out of “2D Goggles or […]

David Dreger/Knuckles Dawson

About a month ago, some of you may have noticed that I made a post asking you to spread the word that David Dreger (also known to some as KnucklesDawson) had gone missing. I wish I had better news for anyone who has followed this, but last night his sister updated the community: We are […]

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: Why joke-thieves will never prosper

But why is it—and this only seems to apply to comedy—that some people so deeply resent those that can write jokes, can invent new perceptions of the world that actually make people laugh? Resent them so much that they have to denigrate the entire profession, just so they can feel better about themselves? Do they […]

Save the Dates: June 21-24 2013: ConTessa

Hey all, Jill here. And this is awesome: ConTessa is an fully online, fully free, gaming convention. Another neat aspect: It is run entirely by women; the panels and games and events are all hosted by people who self-identify as ‘she’.

Trisha’s Video of the Day: GODDAMNIT, Neil Patrick Harris!

Why the fuck can’t the people who put on the Oscars have this much fun with opening numbers? Also. while not as epic as his closing rap number from 2011 (check out how it was written!), his closing number with singer/actress Audra McDonald as also quite sweet.

Trisha’s Music Video of the Day: “Might Get Up Slow”

In the same vein as Punks Not Dad, I present to you No Small Children, composed of three schoolteachers from Los Angeles, California named Lisa Parade (lead singer, lead guitar), Nicola B. (drums), and Joanie Pimentel (bass). I totally love their look and sound, and I wish that I had the confidence that they seem […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Hogwarts magic comes to old movie posters

Did that movie poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire surprise you? Apparently, this was a new online marketing gimmick in 2012 as Empire Online.com handily showed. But what if you did the same thing for older movie posters? Then, you turn to the fine folks at The Shiznit.co.uk with their look at moving movie […]

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: How to apologize on the Internet, part 2

By our organization’s current bylaws, the president of SFWA has unilateral control of, and therefore is ultimately responsible for, the organization’s publications. This includes the Bulletin. This means that when all is said and done, I personally am responsible for the Bulletin and what is published between its covers. I have said this before but […]
