The Theology Of "Angel" In The City Of Demons

The first in a series about our favorite TV shows past.

There are some things I know to be true that cannot be objectively or scientifically proven, what theologians call articles of faith. Corporate lawyers, for instance, are not simply bad people who made poor life choices. They actually work for demons, a kind of lesser god-monster from a parallel dimension porously paired with our own. Professional politics, a career nearly all attorneys aspire to, is itself a realm of slightly higher demons—higher in influence and power, not intellect or evolution. These professions, like those of talent agents and film producers and record-label executives and school principals, are natural [...]


Neil Patrick Harris Is The Best Person

So I am obsessed with Neil Patrick Harris on Twitter. Now, he's no Black People when it comes to the sheer awesomeness of the topics or as suspiciously organized as Mommy Bloggers but him and his majorly adorbs Dr. Horrible avatar has been on there for a day and a half, has 108,683 followers, follows only five supernerdly but crazypopular people like Felicia Day who has 1,562,018 followers and then this one guy from Atlanta, Georgia, named Dodd Vickers who I'm pretty sure NPH follows because they're Internet friends brought together by a mutual love of magic.

Particularly if someone chips in to pay for the other 99.2%.

Ellen Ripley Saved My Life

I was having maybe the worst month of my life when I saw Aliens at the Landmark Sunshine, and I'm pretty sure it was the only thing that saved me.

The details are fairly mundane. I was unemployed; I'd been dumped; I'd decided to deal with all this by hooking up with a stranger, and of course that had gone in the direction of broken condoms and Plan B and hormonal anarchy, probably just because I didn't think anything worse could happen. Right when you think you've hit bottom, sweet Baby Jesus comes and puts a curse on your junk. It had taken serious work, [...]
