On A Guide to Eating Very Particular Feelings

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose (I misread that as cinnamon candles, and somehow it was fine and made sense and had emotional resonance too)

On The Source Family: A Cult I Might Have Joined

@iceberg Could your cult possibly have been The Twelve Tribes? They run bakeries and restaurants going by the name of Yellow Deli that have a groovy 70s treehouse vibe. My dad & I unwittingly had dinner with a couple of families belonging to the Tribe, and while they were ever so kind and sweet to us (and very appealingly hippieish) further research into their cherry picked Judaic and Christian fundamentalist belief system revealed some weird underlying sexism, racism, homophobia and general millenarianism- which was a total bummer of a turnoff because I was really into some of their ideas, like simplicity and raw milk and bulk herb collectives. :(

On Seven Days

@SarcasticFringehead I think you've keyed in to what's most important here, which is that one should never miss the chance to reference Dune obliquely, especially in cosmetics reviews.

In fact, I believe a whole MarySue/Makeupalley hybrid would be about the end of the internet for me. I mean, can you imagine skin care tips from Offred? Fashion advice from Guinan? Relaxing spa recommendations from The Drummers?

On What's On Your Locker Door?

@Valley Girl Juno's cunt, that picture gave me the hunk sweats! Those mens are the two finest Twix bars I have ever clapped eyes on. Who wouldn't be wet as October? Titus Pullo! Lucius Vorenus!
