Here is this week’s list of blog posts, short stories, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Gee Whiz. I’m not usually into love songs but this one was worth watching.
Hwang’s Billion Brilliant Daughters. This stirs up emotions that haven’t been named yet.
Valhal-Mart. What would happen if toy stores began selling action figures based on your deity? The author of this post explains his mixture of emotions so transparently that it is as if you and I are standing in the toy aisle next to him. I had no idea, though, that anyone still worshipped Thor.
Hobbit Houses. If I ever become incurably wealthy I’m going to build a cozy village of hobbit houses out in the country. You’re welcome to join me! 🙂
Guide to Laundry Symbols. One of the funniest and most creative interpretations of common symbolsI’ve seen in a long time. It’s also a good reminder to laugh. Life is too short to take everything seriously.
How society’s ideas about masculinity harm men. (Trigger warning: there is a description of gang rape about 9 minutes into the talk.)
What have you been reading?

that’s a great story about Hwang.
It had me on the edge of my seat! 🙂
“my liberation as a man is tied to your liberation as a woman.” excellent talk.
Most definitely. I wish I could meet the speaker in person.
The Valhal-Mart story was facinating to read, I also didn’t realize that anyone still worshipped Thor either. I would like to point out though that the last time I was in the toy aisle at Walmart (which I admit was years ago) there were action figures of Jesus and Mary… I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard.
Wow. I’ve heard of action figures or dolls based on other Bible characters but selling Jesus and Mary toys seems kind of odd and a little disrespectful.
