One Piece 660 Review – Damn you Donflamingo!

Source: Anime Aura

One Piece 660 is a sad episode, seeing a nation come to its knees because one of the former rulers (who became a Celestial Dragon) returns to take it back. Donflamingo is a really annoying guy. I can’t believe he could be this bad. I still remember the first time I saw him a […]

We’re on for another Feminist Friday at The Lobster Dance

The Feminist Friday discussion went so well last week, Leah’s decided to give it another go at The Lobster Dance. Do stop in tomorrow and check out Leah’s post, especially if you enjoyed last week’s discussion or are interested in the implications of marketing for gender inequality.

Three quick notes:

  1. I haven’t been around at any of my usual hangouts this week because I’ve been busy busy offline and because I’ve been working on a couple of posts for a guest blogging gig. You might want to keep your eye on Comparative Geeks for the next few days 😉
  2. Apologies for not having a Wordless Wednesday this week. What happened was, I was loading a ton of photoblogs to several places in a short amount of time last weekend, and I accidentally loaded Sourcerer’s at Part Time Monster. That’s why Diana had two Wordless …continue reading
