I’m walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
But goodbye’s too good a word, gal
So I’ll just say fare thee well

Bob Dylan and Suze Rotolo on the cover of the former’s Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan represent the archetype of young, bohemian love. The two of them walking arm and arm down a wintry Greenwhich Village street is one of the most romantic images I can think of. Keep reading »

Does The Internet Need A Geek Culture Site For Women?

The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site “for women” is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a pic of a little girl dressed as a princess next to an R2-D2 and I wondered what made this site different from existing ladyblogs like The Frisky, Jezebel or The Hairpin — really, what made it needed. (By the way, the phrase “the Mary Sue” is a term used to describe a cliché, idealized female character often found in “dude literature.) After reading Susana Polo’s thoughtful first post, however, I can see why some of the existing spaces online don’t work for many geek girls who dig comics and “Star Trek” more than eyeshadow and “The Real Housewives.” Keep reading »

What’s The Most Inappropriate Time You’ve Dropped The F-Bomb?

Watching Melissa Leo drop the f-bomb during her Oscar acceptance speech made me feel a little bit better about my own f-bomb mishap. Sometimes it just happens at the most inappropriate moments. For me, it was back in my days as a high school teacher. It was 8th grade visitors night and parents and potential students were coming through my classroom to watch my students rehearse for an upcoming school play. One of my actresses fell on the stage and her skirt flipped up so all of our visitors saw her underwear. That’s when I started to laugh uncontrollably. I know it’s wrong, but I just couldn’t stop. I laughed so hard that I got a gushing nosebleed. Don’t think this story can get any worse? You’re wrong. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: “Bachelor Pad”‘s David Good On Manhood, Natalie Getz, And Who Brad Womack Should Choose

We watched as season five “Bachelorette” contestant, David Good, got a second chance at love on “Bachelor Pad.” After all the pie-eating, backstabbing, and unitard-wearing was said and done, David walked away the big winner with $125,000 in his pocket and Natalie Getz on his arm. Not too shabby! Since then, David has been busy penning a book, The Man Code: A Woman’s Guide To Cracking The Tough Guy. As unlikely a messenger as he may seem, his book gives women a look under the hood, helping them crack the code to understanding “men’s men.”

I had an email conversation with David to find out more about his thoughts on manhood, his love life, and who Brad Womack should choose. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »
