It’s hard to engage in the hobbies you enjoy when the world’s on fire. Hyperbolic? Yes. But is it that far from the truth? These days . . . no, not really. The many hobbies and activities people participated in … Continue reading Appreciating My Manga Collections More in a COVID-19 World
I’m back with another book review. This was going to be part of the next installment for my “The Quick and the Queer” short queer-centric book reviews, but in celebration of the March 7 release of Benjamin Sáenz’s new novel The Inexplicable … Continue reading Book Review: The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Sáenz
Part two! PART TWO! It has arrived. Notice a second photo of beloved Sufjan Stevens. I promise he’s just as relevant in this post as he was in Part One. If you see the massive wall of text below and … Continue reading The Quick and the Queer – Short LGBT+ Book Reviews, Pt 2
(I promise the above picture of Sufjan Stevens is at least sort of relevant. Kind of. *squint*) Because I have decided to have absolutely no chill in the Year of our Lord 2017, I’ve already read four books since … Continue reading The Quick and the Queer – Short LGBT+ Book Reviews, pt 1
