The issue is that the creative aspects of the album's creation (composition and performance) are attributed to her while the technical aspects are attributed to her male collaborators while completely leaving out the fact that she co-produced the album. People writing about this album at the time did the same thing and it was equally grating then. I'm not attributing ill-intent to you and I can tell you really appreciate her as an artist but consciously or not there is inherent sexism in some of what you wrote.

It should be noted that Joanna co-produced the album and was heavily involved in the arrangements. She was not an ethereal creature whose pure feminine creativity was channeled through a bunch of male geniuses.

You might try The Complete David Bowie. It's not super heavy on anecdotes but it has information on the production of every song he's ever recorded, including as a producer (so the Iggy/Lou stuff is included). Lots of technical recording details, quotes from Bowie collaborators, and some good behind-the-scenes stuff. The author is a bit of a starry-eyed fanboy, but then, can you blame him?

The hardest part of rewatching Friends start to finish as a grownup is realizing what a completely unbearable character Ross is (the gay jokes are a close second). But I still love it.

Maybe I just like the show better because in the books the gay stuff is all subtext (so far) but on the show it's butts everywhere. Also it's easier to zone out when Jon Snow's around when watching TV than when reading.

"Books always and in all ways are better" is nearly always correct but speaking as someone currently limping to the end of A Clash of Kings, it is false as regards Game of Thrones.

If they love Guy Fieri so much they really should double down and name their next album "Welcome to Flavor Town"

If other people were as funny as Kelly I would pay them to publish their chat conversations.

I'm kind of curious to watch this show now but I can't imagine that it's as wonderful/terrible as you're making it sound!

Thank you, Scott. I hope you know there are Monsters all over meeting in secret and trying to think of ways to help out any "keep Videogum alive-esque somehow" efforts as soon as we see the bat signal! This place is (was :( ) the bomb and I'm grateful that we had it for as long as we did.

To this day I am still haunted by the fact that I didn't rotate the wig slightly to the right in the Blingee I made out of that picture. http://i62.tinypic.com/bg6atc.gif

If anybody is looking to drown their sorrows tonight, I can guarantee that this Twilight drinking game will help (it resulted in one of the top three drunkest nights in my life): -Drink any time Bella says or does something that makes you feel worried about feminism -Drink any time Jacob takes off his shirt -Drink any time somebody shows off their magical vampire abilities -Drink any time two characters stare wordlessly at each other for at least three consecutive cuts

I had a dream last night that my apartment was infested with cockroaches and then I woke up to the nightmare of a world without Jay Leno on TV.

It does seem weird to have a website going away be such a big deal but really when you think about it, and I don't want to speak for anybody else but it's true for me, it's like when you realize that you spend way more time with the people you work with than anybody else in your life and since I spend more time interacting with you guys in the comment section when I'm at work than actually conversing with my coworkers, it's like that x2, plus I actually like all of you guys and I don't like a lot of my coworkers! And I definitely like Kelly more than my boss! So even though it's the internet, it's still been such a big part of my day to day life that there's going to be a big gaping hole! So what I'm saying is that I will not be surprised if this becomes a topic when I go to therapy tonight so you're not alone.

What a day already! The CTA was messed up more than usual this morning so I was late to work which was bad because I had to meet with HR first thing to talk about the fact that I'm quitting and they suggested that I might get sued which is not pleasant but also not likely and whatever I don't even care I just want to get the f out of here! And then I told a couple of people in my department that I'm leaving and they were super sad which was sad but also nice in a way too I guess? And now I have to work for two more weeks and pretend I care and it's actually kind of busy right now but I'm just like "Whatever!!!" But also I had thought that my shift at my new job was going to be super early in the morning but I just found out that I can actually have the same schedule I have now thank god! I was trying to convince myself that working super early would be ok but I can barely drag myself out of bed every morning as it is. On the whole though this day is good because I have been working towards switching to this new job for a couple of months now and I haven't been able to tell anybody at work about it until today and it is SUCH a relief. I hate keeping secrets!

Oh my god I forgot about this but it just made me laugh so hard again. And ugh you guys, I want to savor these last couple of days but my stupid company is distracting me with all these quitting formalities (which apparently include mentioning that though they really love me and will miss me, if they really wanted to they could sue me for leaving). You know what they say, if you love something, let it go and get a job that will pay them a decent salary!
