Dustin Lance Black

anyone see the new movie "Milk" yet? dustin lance black wrote it. turns out he is mormon. who knew? he was the only mormon writer on the first two seasons of 'big love,' which is one of the greatest tv shows of our time.

this interview is a pretty interesting listen. it is a pretty good take on mormonism, prop 8, and writing for film and screen. please listen to it now. it's essential for understanding this issue, imho.

is that you, mitt?

where was this this mitt during the republican primary? this op-ed shows a mitt romney that knows what he is doing. nothing like the blubbering, pandering mitt that showed up for the republican primaries. while i still don't like most everything about his policies or the way he presents himself, this idea is good.

oh and btw, peter and emily are getting married in like three days. wild.


everything nate silver touches turns to gold. but this is particularly great. all i can say is i wish i were nate silver...please be warned that the transcript is not safe for work due to some language content...

prop 8

This is a very good look at why a pro-prop 8 vote doesn't necessarily equal bigotry. the article doesn't, however, justify such a vote. give it a look see.
