Your Feedback Matters â Update on Xbox One
There was a part of me that couldn’t believe Microsoft would willingly set up their best product for failure, and I wondered if it was all just a PR ploy. The retraction of Xbox One’s most loathsome features just makes me suspect them even more. Look at how awesome Microsoft is, they listen to us! *eye roll*
My coming soon prediction: Microsoft will sweep in and add the ability to turn off the always-on camera.

22 baffling revelations you have when you move to america
attractive british man sent this one to me and said “12, 15 and 16 especially. i have my own long list of baffling behaviours. “
I agree with this. 12, 15 and 16 all the way. I’ve lived here for 11 years and I still do day/month/year more often than not. Also, sometimes I go through my Canadian friends’ facebook pages because it’s reassuring to know that not everyone is obsessed with having Hollywood white teeth.
oh, the things I’ll do
I’m going to my first con this weekend. Not so much to fan-girl (no one cool will be there), but to get more involved in my genre’s scene (yeah, genres have a scene, i guess), and sit in on some panel discussions.
What does Dusty do at a con? She attends all of the writing and genre panels. For example:
- It Wasn’t Always a Cliche
Panelists discuss the earliest use of the tropes of spec fic.
- Does the Dark Lord KNOW he’s the Dark Lord?
Panelists discuss what it takes (and maybe what it takes out of you) to be the Dark Lord.
- Archetype, Stereotype, Caricature: What Do These Mean in Speculative Fiction?
- Does Fantasy Have to be Epic?
Does all fantasy have to be a multi-book save-the-world epic? Is there still a place for the stand-alone book?
- Houston Science Fiction Association General Meeting
Panels I won’t be attending include “The New New Star Trek” and “The New New New Doctor Who.” I’ll also be skipping the Firefly LARP because I still have my dignity, god dammit.
PS. I am the Dark Lord, mother fuckers.

Go home, America. You are drunk and having a miscarriage while you twerk.
Edited to add: I really hope this isn’t breaking news for Black America. Like, really really.
