  1. Pixelthreads: Video Games’ Undies Problem

    It's probably not what you think.

    Underwear in video games quite often confuses and baffles me, when they bother to acknowledge that women wear it at all.

  5. Review: Cameron Crowe’s Aloha Not As Feel-Good As It Wants To Be

    Spring brought us the transgender-themed comedy Boy Meets Girl which does capture that overwhelming sense of joy, making it a “feel good film” in the best sense; but summer, amidst the many blockbusters, won’t have many smaller-scale films to balance the slate. One of the few rom-coms we are getting is Cameron Crowe’s new film Aloha, which isn’t nearly as feel good as it wants to be.

  6. Chris Pratt Teaches Pratt Child the Pledge of Allegiance, Be Still My Heart

    Please let him have taught the raptors, too.

    I've got a lot of qualms about the Pledge of Allegiance (blame Canadian Montessori schools, I guess), but Pratt teaching petite Pratt the Pledge of Allegiance is giving me all kinds of Officer and a Gentleman feelings.
