On Cooking Valentine's Dinner With A Kick From Champagne

Ahh! I am here (TL;DR) to post this recipe, which is perfect for a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy (for those of us who are attracted to waifish nerds but somehow end up dating hearty midwestern stock):


LIFE CHANGING. Also sometimes I make it just for myself. And by "sometimes" I mean "always." More potatoes for me!

On 'The Thorn Birds': When Young, Sexy, Straight Priests Roamed The Earth

I just came here to say that I have friends in Catholic seminary who have dubbed me a "chalice chipper" (ahem: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chalice%20chipper) because I am constantly in love with one priest or another.

On Meanwhile, Madonna Is Stealing Film Directors' Jobs

Saw W.E. in an advanced screening and BOY was it difficult to watch. I expected it to be Julie & Julia: The Royals Version! (which I would eat up with a spoon. Or 17 spoons.) but it was not.

On Now Condé Nasters Must Find an Even Newer Media to Make Sense of Themselves

I can promise y'all that those things on the Conde Elevator twitter have actually happened. I worked at Conde earlier this year and have heard conversations very, very similar to those. Ridiculous.

This is all part of M Night Shyamalan's effort to boost DVD sales, right?

On Sexy Snape In Love: Five Secondary Characters Who Dominate 'Harry Potter' Fan Fiction

@D.@twitter Well, I feel like it started waning when LiveJournal had its "OMG Harry Potter fanfic is CHILD PORN!!!" moment and banned/deleted a lot of members... the fandom scattered a bit and never really regrouped in a significant way. That was when I left LJ and never went back - even as an active reader/commenter, not so much author.

On No One Knows How to Get to JFK from Williamsburg (OR DO THEY?)

@Multiphasic Nope Squirt is a grapefruit-flavored soda (sold primarily in the midwest, where of course they - correctly - call it POP) and is similar to, like, Fresca, but better.
Excellent with gin.
