Mar 11, 2016 eclexia commented on Chicago Trump Rally Shut Down by Hero Protesters.
I'm not sure what good comes out of this. I realize that this makes people feel empowered. But the only real power comes in the voting booth. Did this increase or decrease the number of people who will show up to vote for Trump in the country? Did it demoralize his supporters in any way? Or does it just feed their victim mythology?
Mar 3, 2016 eclexia commented on New Ghostbusters Trailer Poll.
Much too derivative. Much too forced. Did you see anything new here?
Feb 29, 2016 eclexia commented on Oh Look, There's an Ad in Today's New York Times About What a Bad, Bad Man Dan Savage Is.
I thought the show premiered months ago.
Feb 16, 2016 eclexia commented on Pee-Wee's Big Holiday.
It's clever to put him against Joe Manganiello. Reminds me of when Andy Dick and Joe Rogan were always played against each other on News Radio.
Feb 15, 2016 eclexia commented on Clarence Thomas After Scalia's Death.
Justice Thomas is closely allied with the Heritage Foundation, where his wife worked for many years. She continues to be a political lobbyist for right-wing causes. I would look to her, rather than to Scalia, as the source of his ideology. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_T…

"bad actors may have slipped something into the justice’s drink to trigger a heart attack"

Yes, they did. They slipped a drink into his drink. They slipped tiny bit of poison into him, unsuspecting, every night for 60 years straight. Fattening foods as well. And he fell right into the trap.
Feb 11, 2016 eclexia commented on The Definition of Insanity: Gay Republicans.
Dan--

After your dustup with GOProud back then, the organization imploded. One of the founders, Jimmy LaSalvia (former Log Cabin director) wrote a book last year called "No Hope: Why I Left the GOP (and You Should Too)".

I was curious if you've ever interviewed him or even spoken to him since he gave up the GOP.
Jan 28, 2016 eclexia commented on Have You Seen the Cover of the Stranger This Week?.
It is a beautiful cover. In all seriousness, if it were a limited-edition poster, maybe signed by the artist, you could auction them off for a bit of change.
Nov 12, 2015 eclexia commented on The Second-Best Feeling in the World: Jujitsu.
Great to see a martial artist on The Stranger writing team!

I started with martial arts in college. The underlying message is one of self-strengthening, individualism, and being purposeful. Much as a I love The Stranger, the editorial voice could do with a bit more of that at times.
Nov 6, 2015 eclexia commented on Damn Fine Police Work: Over Half the Student Body of One Colorado High School Facing Felony Charges.
These kids should all be locked up in a prison of student debt and limited job opportunities for life! If only we could design such a system.
