So, “Skyfall” Made Me Sick to My Stomach

December 2, 2012 by


Before I saw Skyfall I happened to read this post [edit: alas, link is gone] about it by my favourite ecrivante roué (and source of many things feminist) Sarah McCarry. I didn’t think much of it – surely Sarah’s claim that a pretty woman is killed just to make a joke about whiskey was somewhat exaggerated? […]

Internal Landscapes

June 16, 2012 by


I wring my hands when distressed, occasionally so much that I rub the skin raw. The world will, at times, end. There will be no rope to follow anywhere, nowhere to go, nothing to do – no good left in it, no bad. I sit and stare and shake. I’m mute, and I wring my […]

April 8, 2011 by


My dad was the Best Dad Ever. He collected electric guitars and played like a pro. He wore red All-Stars and cowboy boots and bomber jackets. He lived in the Lower East Side. His apartment had bare brick, Balinese masks and a cow skull. He used to run my sharp little-girl nails over the thick […]

LoTR Films Play-By-Play Snark – Fellowship of the Ring

March 22, 2011 by


Probably best if you watch along with the blog, but even so, I feel that my words are meaningful without such fancy-dancy frippery as having two browser windows open at once. ANYWAY. Herewith, the snarking: Nice Celtic fonts for opening. Sorta shimmery. Ok, yeah, a little cheap-looking. Whatever. Ooh! Cate Blanchett, hello! Oh I remember […]

It is difficult to get the hang of things. Soldier on, dear friends.

On the Ocean

February 14, 2011 by


Seaside holiday towns during the off-season are some of my favourite places to be. They feel fragile, abandoned — delicate structures built large to accommodate the huge number of tourists that come during the summer but trying not to collapse under their own weight in colder months.
