New promo for ‘Machette’ looks great! I don’t know why I am so entertained by these cheesy 70’s grindhouse throwbacks… But I am.

1. Boylston Hall: 2nd Floor
If you like the feel of Ticknor Lounge but are often overwhelmed by the student groups that frequently take over the place, the semi-hidden seating area upstairs can be a great place to get some work done.
Like Ticknor, there are plenty of tables, chairs, and power plugs – making it a perfect place to jot down a few thoughts between classes. Or, if you’re in for the long haul, there are also booths with space for you to sprawl your notes out or work with a friend.
To find this gem, take the main stairwell in Boylston to the 2nd floor and walk past the reception desk – or go up the staircase immediately adjacent to the entrance to Ticknor.

Philoctetes was a Greek hero from the Trojan War. No, he wasn’t a vertically stunted, grumpy satyr, and no, he didn’t train Heracles, as Disney would have you believe. Philoctetetes did light Heracles’ funeral pyre for him, though, and was rewarded with the mega-hero’s poison arrows and bow.
Philoctetes was the Paris of the Greeks, you could say. Not in terms of being a big wuss, but in terms of favouring archery over close combat, and being a pretty fine shot, too. That being said, archers were still thought of as inherently cowardly and dishonourable. Philoctetes was also famous for dealing the death-blow to the wuss-king himself, Paris.
Philoctetes was one of Odysseus’ merry men who fought in the Trojan War. On the way to the western shores of Anatolia, (Troy) Philoctetes got bit by a snake on his foot. The wound festered and smelled awful, so the crew left him on the island of Lemnosto die, demonstrating the bounds of true friendship. Unfortunately, the Greeks needed the bow and poisoned arrows of Heracles to win the war, which, of course, Philoctetes had in his possession. A frustrated Odysseus went to Lemnos to get the bow and arrows, and alas, they found Philoctetes alive. Odysseus and his men then conned the mopey Philoctetes out of his prized bow and arrows. Just when everything seemed bleakest for the whiney, snake-bit, bow-and-arrowless, the now-deified Heracles came down from Olympus and convinced him to go forth and fight in the Trojan war to become a great Achaean hero. And fight he did. And he did so well that I’m writing about him here, on a blog, thousands of years later. Good job!
There are a few strange things about Liz Lemon interacting with and befriending men almost exclusively. The first is that the character is a self-described feminist — but then, that’s not so strange, considering that the Liz Lemonist brand of that particular lifestyle seems to consist heavily of passing judgment on and slamming other girls. Liz Lemonism, being so solipsistic, is content with a feminist movement dedicated to the advancement not necessarily of women, but of one particular woman, the Liz Lemonist in question, and perhaps a handful of the friends who agree with her most often. Girls who aren’t Lemonist enough are always open for a “critique” or two.
This whole thing is brilliant; please go read.
I’ve been thinking lately about Liz Lemon and sex, and why she seems so uncomfortable with it, and why we never see her having it, and why even the simple act of, say, making out is always done “ironically” or “awkwardly” or like she’s 12. What is the takeaway here? Women who are funny aren’t supposed to be interested in sex?
I don’t want to be all “last night’s South Park” here, but isn’t the takeaway that awkward making out is much funnier than successful making out, and 30 Rock is a comedy? And also that Liz being an ideologically confused feminist is funnier than her being an ideologically doctrinate feminist, whatever that would be?
Hey guys. So my Aunt got me a Zombie Dildo for my birthday but she didn’t know that I already have one. I can’t take it back. So I decided to give it away to one of my followers on here, it doesn’t matter what country you live in. You just have to re-blog this or suggest me for the directory. I’ll pick a random winner on valentines day.
EDIT: Hey cats and jammers this here is satire/parady of the spam we have all received regarding someones aunt giving them a macbook air that is nonreturnable? unsellable? - Well I thought it was obvious and free advertising for fine folks at Necronomicox but I was wrong. So go HERE to buy zombie dildos! and other crazy stuff. I aint giving a zombie dildo away. I only give away books and hopefully a few laughs.
