I admit, I do rather like pizza…

So, who wants to go in with me on some pizza, hmm?

To Slide or to Slice? Finding a Positive Sexual Metaphor | Scarleteen:

Since the baseball metaphor has so many problems with it, Vernacchio created another metaphor that is much more holistic, inclusive… and tasty.

He suggests that instead of baseball, we get a template of sexuality from pizza.

Almost everyone likes pizza.
It’s got little in common with baseball, but a whole lot in common with sex.

You don’t have to be young or popular or skilled in any way to be good at eating pizza. It’s a sensual experience, like sex, that most people enjoy. Eating pizza involves the same senses as sex—it’s a full body experience.

People eat pizza because they want to. As with sex, we have a hunger for pizza (“Let’s have pizza!”) and we eat it when we have that hunger. It has to do with personal anticipation and excitement, not someone else’s ideas about how or when we should or shouldn’t eat pizza.

A Month of TV Commentary: A Meme in 30 Parts: Day 15

Day 15 – Favorite female character

Wow. This one is hard. (“That’s what SHE said…” “Shut up.”)

Even if I limit this to favourite female character in a show I’m currently watching, it’s a hard choice. Alyson Hannigan’s sweetly sexy Lily on How I Met Your Mother, Kaley Cuoco’s down-to-earth Penny on The Big Bang Theory. Jayma Mays’s neurotic Emma on Glee, Tiffani Thiessen’s sensible Elizabeth on White Collar…There’s a lot to choose from.

In the end, though, I’m going to pick Stana Katic’s Detective Kate Beckett on ABC’s Castle. Katic’s Beckett is smart, tough, and drop-dead gorgeous. The chemistry between her and Nathan Fillion’s Richard Castle is incredible, and she’s capable of saying more with a look than anyone on television. I’ve seen Beckett and Castle have entire conversations without speaking a word, which is really awesome.

I considered who I might pick if I opened this up to female characters from any show ever, but I don’t think I could begin to narrow it down to a top 10, let alone a single favourite. So I’ll stick with my self-imposed limitation of choosing from things I’m currently watching. Because it’s my journal, and I’m allowed to do that. 🙂

Pianist Transcribes Complete Super Mario Bros. Score

Pianist Transcribes Complete Super Mario Bros. Score | GameLife |

Joseph Karam has worked for several months to create a comprehensive transcription of Koji Kondo’s score to the original Super Mario Bros.

Karam was keen to understand how to play Mario themes and sound effects from the 1985 videogame, but could find no definitive score. Nintendo has never published an official version, but dozens of amateurs had created their own transcriptions — none of which replicated the score adequately, according to Karam.

  • 10:51:54: @extralife When Blizz announces date, it will be on website in font readable from space. All dates before that are pure conjecture.
  • 10:53:29: @catvalente And you continue to look like that, while the you in the original photo gets older and older?
  • 12:15:32: @ferretthimself Perhaps the card’s art depicts Titania, rather than the priest himself?
  • 12:22:28: @ferretthimself Perhaps the high priest of Titania is on his way back from a midnight showing of Rocky Horror and hasn’t had time to change?
  • 14:21:44: @rslatkin Because you never before needed to punch an electric hole? (I’ve had days like that…)
