On What Writing Programs Ought To Teach You When They Teach You About Writing

There are many, many good lines in this, some of my favorites being:

"It ain’t exactly like the Keebler elves making delicious cookies as a team. We live in this Age of Haters, and the dumbest of us speak the loudest and cut the deepest. "

"People talk shit about other people, because life is intrinsically boring now with no dragons to battle and only Bed Bath & Beyond to astound us."

So, good job. Also, how to turn your writing minor into internets for fun and profit would be the class I would teach.

On "Felicity" And The Joys Of Decent TV

If someone had told me this show involved time travel and witches I probably would have watched it before now!

On a related note, I did this with Buffy two summers ago and it was pretty great ("why don't they just use cell phones! Oh right, it's 1998...")

On The 40-Year-Old Reversion

@Gef the Talking Mongoose My favorite episodes of Torchwood are the season one episodes of Doctor Who with John Barrowman in them.

Just kidding, I like Gwen too, but don't bother with Miracle Day unless you just like looking at Captain Jack's perfectly chiseled face.

On Okay, Help: What's Your Ideal Afternoon in Brooklyn for Tourists?

If they're already doing the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden right next door then they should walk down to Vanderbilt ave for many yummy brunch/lunch options, I like Branded Saloon personally (customize-your-own bloody mary!). And ice cream at Ample Hills (Vanderbilt) and/or Blue Marble on Washington Ave for sure.
