I talked about Gankutsuou’s handling of teen crushes on adults last week, but here’s a more extensive discussion on age-gap relationships with Dee and Caitlin: the ethical, the bad, and the normalizing. Oh, and the “that doesn’t actually fall under this pernicious problem.” (I can’t believe I forgot […]
My Christmas gift to you, dear readers, is my drunken wails of anguish.
Previous We left off at a dire moment for Our Hero: the inevitable had at last come to pass, and Lestat’s first love Nicolas had immolated himself (with more than a touch of help from Armand). We return you now to that moment as things continue to get […]
Previous Summer is turning to fall, and so we return to those garbage vampires of my heart doing….actually, remember the World Tour part of Interview with the Vampire that was wisely cut from the film? Yeah, this is that again; except that Lestat is the Dashing Hero who […]

Previous IT’S TIME. IT’S TIME AGAIN AT LAST TO TALK ABOUT MY BOY. …..Perhaps I get ahead of myself. I believe we left off with Lestat making one of his usual Good Decisions, didn’t we?
Previous We now return you to where we left off: Lestat’s impulsive, poor decision making skills. That could be any book at any point, really; the difference is that this is still the time when the benefit of his intent still outweighs the damage he does.
Not QUITE an episode of Trash & Treasures, but it felt important to begin 2017 this way: drunk and distracting ourselves with garbage. Okay, so there are these vampires, right? And they all originated from this time a demon possessed a human, yeah? Well it turns out we’re all […]
