I wrote this last night.

30 years ago today, John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness was released.

That means that 30 years ago tnight, I was at the AMC 10 in Burbank.

Today, that part of Burbank is filled with businesses and chain restaurants and street performers. 30 years ago, there was the theater, a parking garage, a Fuddrucker’s that’s still there and...

Sometimes, days like that remind me of the days my dad and I were close, and before he passed away...  When he used to take me to Boston and there was a huge Warner Brothers store filled with Marvin the Martian merchandise and his spaceship you could climb into and play with the controls, but all they really did was color in a photo via computer, which was then printed out...  That area has been turned into a food court and a big Barnes and Nobel, and when I worked in that mall when I was in college, I'd ride the subway to the stop under the mall, walk up the stairs, get my Starbucks from B&N because they were free as long as I worked at the store I worked at (Game Stop)... we got huge discounts in a bunch of places back then.  Anyway, as I picked up my iced coffee, I would die a little inside because I knew that it used to be a place of joy for me and my father as a child.  Those days also remind me of when my dad would let me skip school on my birthday, and would take me to The Roger Williams Park Zoo back in my hometown in Rhode Island.  The park around it was beautiful, and contained structures made of Roman-like architecture, and there was this tree that we always sat on with a branch that was low to the ground and drank Del's Lemonade after being at the zoo...  I believe they have cut the branch off the tree not too long ago as to not encourage kids to climb it, and I doubt I'd recognize it or the zoo anymore.  They used to let the Lemurs out on nice days, and they'd just sit on a fence where the keepers watched them, and encouraged us to pet them since they were hand-raised.  I remember feeding one.  I doubt they do that anymore.  I haven't been back "home" in like 5 years, and that was when I wasn't as sick as I am now...  I just feel like, even though my family lives there, I have no ties there anymore.  My dad's gone, my mom coddles my older sister, and I feel like a stranger there now...

... to do a week of daily posts that are like SG CLASSICS or THE OG SGs or whatever. Just sort of a tribute to some of the SGs from the years who I think of as the canonical Suicide Girls.

Before I invest the time: anyone want to see that?

Yes please! 

One of the super fun things about living with depression and anxiety is how my idiot brain can go from “CAN DO!” to “EXISTENCE IS SUFFERING” faster than you can wish to take two strokes off your golf game. So today started out normal, and very quickly became a rough day. One of the ways I help myself through days like today, is to acknowledge...

Thank you for this (although I'm sorry you were not having a good day).

Here’s what happens: A report or revelation that would end literally any other administration in the history of the country is released. Then, as predictably as night follows day, a complete bullshit story is spun out to a friendly writer (we will not call them journalists, because what they do is not journalism). That bullshit story is published, and Trump’s enablers can deflect...

  1. 1. My friends, Kumail and Emily, wrote and produced a movie called The Big Sick. It’s about how they met and fell in love, and it’s wonderful. It’s a great date movie. It’s funny, it’s heartwarming without being saccharine, and it’s a true story! It’s a little indie movie, but it’s holding its own against big summer...

I'm the worst sleeper, you reckon a white noise machine works? Never thought of using one but might have to suss it out hey

pretty stoned most 2 AM's, thankful shake-weight has yet to defeat my better judgment 😂  

Last year, a couple of weeks before Halloween, I had this idea to write a short, supernatural horror story. At the time, I was deep in the first draft of the short story that became a novella that really wants to be a novel (which has since been titled “All We Ever Wanted Was Everything”), so switching tracks to work on something different was intended...

While some might be inclined to dismiss King as a fringe figure, the very fact that so few Republicans are willing to criticize him speaks volumes. They clearly don’t want to alienate those voters who agree with King’s racist remarks. It’s yet one more reminder of the extent to which white nationalism and open racism have become normalized within the modern Republican...

I'm not sure when I started calling us the divided states of America but I think it was when the news networks decided to support one party over the other.  I try to follow news that offers both sides and let me decide but I believe  most Americans just watch the channel they think agree with what they already think.

When I was born, my entire extended family consisted of 13 people thanks to the Nazis, so I'm not inclined to defend racism or bigotry. That said, I think most of it is rooted in fear and very poor education in a number of important areas. The really detestable examples of racists are those who use divide and conquer strategies for personal gain. They have come out of the woodwork now and like most of us, I did not think it could happen here. Still, I'm going to go with @78walk 's analysis and hope for the best.
