In Logopolis, the final hour for Tom Baker’s fourth incarnation of Doctor Who, the chanting mathematicians of that distant world have a natty little phrase. They are holding the death of the Universe at bay with their calculations and declare that “the essence of matter is structure, and the essence of structure is…
Open thread Friday!
Another chapter of my infrequently updated webcomic, The Devils Dekpa and Deborah, is online. Feminine hygiene and violent revolution are discussed. Enjoy.
So yesterday, April 26, was Alien Day, and the day before that, April 25, was World Penguin Day. Since I failed to commemorate either occasion, despite being a big fan of both aliens and penguins, I figured: why not combine the two? (Not unike some sort of hideous xeno-biomechanoid/big-bottomed flightless waterfowl…
Don’t get me wrong, it’s hilarious, too, of course - very much so, but... I - had not expected so many feels from the class clown of the MCU.

Are you sitting comfortably? Michelle Gomez has a story all for you ...
So somehow Arrow is more repetitive than ever, and yet as fun as season 2. I’m puzzled but I welcome this. Tonight we have a chase of Chase. Let’s react to that. Meanwhile, Baby Root keeps making odd career advice statements to Felicity.
Today we see the team put on an island and the team blow up a solar system.
There is something to think about after last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD: It’s weird how they are “being political” by pointing out propaganda and sexual harassment. I am old enough to remember when “being political” meant talking about how tax cuts affect different areas of the country or whether we are or…
So guess who nearly forgot about WednesdayBookClub. My bad,y’all! This day has already sucked and it’s not even 11am locally. Let’s do this!
