Man. Just reading the first paragraph made me feel incredibly sad. I mean, come on. You don't end up in a parking lot screwing a mattress while blaring porn because you have a good life or a wonderful mental state. This is just sad, all around. » 8/26/14 10:13pm 8/26/14 10:13pm

If a person's success in life can be measured by how many people they helped to keep going no matter what by bringing laughter to their hearts and reminding them of the sheer joy of living, then I have to say: hands down, Mr. Robin Williams, you won. Thank you for all the times you touched my heart and made me keep… » 8/11/14 7:28pm 8/11/14 7:28pm

Michael Rooker Dished About Playing Everyone's Favorite Racist

Wizard World Comic-con is coming to San Antonio for the first time this summer (cue the sound of thousands of nerds rejoicing)! The local alt-newspaper San Antonio Current has been on board from the beginning with convention season features, like one about anime convention San Japan and another about local cosplayers. » 7/30/14 4:56pm 7/30/14 4:56pm

I've been a licensed massage therapist specializing in clinical massage and myofascial work for 10 years, and I agree with you. There is a large amount of understanding of how fascia works and how to work with it, but I guess the scientific community at large views this as mostly anecdotal and not proven through… » 7/29/14 3:03pm 7/29/14 3:03pm

Here's a scary one - most spas don't want you to take off either. I worked as a massage therapist for years. I had been at one spa for a couple of years, NEVER taken a sick day (or a day off, come to think of it). I worked Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Sunday and went to school on the other days. » 7/23/14 1:08pm 7/23/14 1:08pm

Honestly, short stories are ALWAYS what get me. "Survivor Type" left me traumatized, some of Ray Bradbury's gave me nightmares, "Fruiting Bodies" and the story about the mold are seriously f'ed up. I think scary novels, I just won't do - if I start getting scared I put it down. But short stories — it's always too… » 6/10/14 7:08pm 6/10/14 7:08pm

Probably a silly connection here, but that was part of the Harry Potter series that really stuck with me. In a conversation about how to repair a ripped-apart soul after a person killed another person, Hermione points out that there is a way, but few choose it, because it is so painful: remorse. The person has to… » 6/09/14 2:20pm 6/09/14 2:20pm

Huh. NEISD, I am glad we know this about each other since I've been applying at your schools. I feel like I'm seeing a whole different side of you. (But, come on. I bet North Side would let the kid have sunscreen. Heck, I bet Alamo Heights would give the parent a pat on the wrist over brunch. Gotta step it up, North… » 6/06/14 10:56pm 6/06/14 10:56pm
