  1. George Takei Praises Taylor Swift’s All-Female “Bad Blood” Video While Calling Out Marvel

    Band-Aids don't fix bullet holes.

    George Takei knows what's up. In this Tweet from a few days ago, Takei praises Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video for its all-girl cast (except for token featured dude, Kendrick Lamar), while seemingly referencing Marvel's lack of a Black Widow movie and/or any instance, really, of there being more than one or two women at a time doing anything action-y in a scene together without being otherwise surrounded by men.

  8. What Kind of Music Does Your Cat Like? Science Tackles the Tough Questions

    Chamber Meowsic? Contempurrary? The screams of lesser beings as their souls descend to hell?

    Of all the cat-queries I'd like science to answer (how have I earned their eternal contempt, for starters), "what kind of tunes do cats like to jam out to?" seems like kind of a low-priority question. Maybe that's why I'm being shunned?

  12. Allow Neil Gaiman to Serenade You With the Honeyed Tones of His Song, “I Google You”

    *immediately goes to google someone*

    If you've never heard author Neil Gaiman speak, I highly recommend doing so should you get the chance. He's a wonderful orator, but as it turns out, that pleasantness translates to his singing voice as well (even if he doesn't think so). Gaiman and Amanda Palmer performed a special one-night show in Florida on Valentine's Day during which they performed his "I Google You," a different kind of sorrowful love song for the digital age.
