Currently reading (and immediately absorbing): The Amateur Marriage by Anne Tyler

I saw "Ex Machina" this past weekend and, while it's not perfect, I would recommend it. It's definitely a movie where you're better off knowing as little as possible before going in, so I'll say no more.

So good I can hardly stand it: Things I’ve Learned About Heterosexual Female Desire From Decades Of Reading by Mallory Ortberg

Another wonderful piece by Thomas Page McBee: A Trans Story Is a Ghost Story

Nonviolence as Compliance: "When nonviolence is preached as an attempt to evade the repercussions of political brutality, it betrays itself. When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse. When nonviolence is preached by the representatives of the state, while the state doles out heaps of violence to its citizens, it reveals itself to be a con."

Mmmhmm: Why Are We Waiting So Long To Not GAF? and I will Never Apologize for being Vulnerable.

If you are looking for a way to donate to the efforts in Nepal, I would suggest you consider donating to Oxfam. I know multiple people who work there, and I trust their choices about how to spend donation money, as well as their commitment to providing both immediate response and long term efforts towards recovery.
