Today I've reached a breaking point. A mix of anxiety, sweaty palms, fierce heartbeats and all, utter disgust, and confusion as to what action to take next. I am female. And the world has a problem with it.
I host a radio show, HiSciFi. If it weren't for the economic downturn… Read full post »

Dollhouse, the show meant to delight, bring back the intelligent dialogue, the humour, the “chicks we dig,” did nothing for me. Instead of “getting my Whedon on,” I wa… Read full post »
Today, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), widely criticised for its monetary policies and strategies often imposed against people's wishes, or for that matter, commonly resulting in growing debts and economic stagnation of countries borrowing the funds (achieving quite the opposite effect t… Read full post »

Open Salon made me make new friends. Not intentionally though. There I was, minding my own business, being ignored by all of you, and then I met a "friend" through Open Salon. Who? Why one of our Open Salon favorites, Denis Faye, who, when he's isn't being all glam and covered… Read full post »
Canadian public is heading to the polls tomorrow, yet strangely, many of them feel alienated. These are not just any voters, but the younger ones - the juicy YOUTH vote. What is youth concerned about? Some would say environmental issues - and they would be correct - but amongst issues that… Read full post »
This week has been filled with drama on multiple podiums. The unraveling of the US economy crisis was further compromised by McCain's sudden refusal to join in the scheduled Friday night debates, turning the presidential race into some strange form of political game of chicken.
McCain's desire to ha… Read full post »

One of the more provocative articles to come my way is from none other than Cracked.com. While known for their hillarious top 10s, and random fact searches (oh, joys of Wikipedia),… Read full post »
