*My mom's second book has been published!"
Find it here: http://amzn.com/1626251703

I am so proud of +Lindsay Gibson, author of _Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents._ She's taken such an interesting approach to bad parenting that isn't what we normally think of, but is still damaging. I couldn't be happier that I was raised by such a smart, caring, wonderful woman :)

"If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you may have lingering feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, or abandonment. You may recall your childhood as a time when your emotional needs were not met, when your feelings were dismissed, or when you took on adult levels of responsibility in an effort to compensate for your parent’s behavior. These wounds can be healed, and you can move forward in your life.

In this breakthrough book, clinical psychologist Lindsay Gibson exposes the destructive nature of parents who are emotionally immature or unavailable. You will see how these parents create a sense of neglect, and discover ways to heal from the pain and confusion caused by your childhood. By freeing yourself from your parents’ emotional immaturity, you can recover your true nature, control how you react to them, and avoid disappointment. Finally, you’ll learn how to create positive, new relationships so you can build a better life."

Behold. A True Patriot. /Sarcasm

This image about the Baltimore protests infuriates me. This is an 8th grade level argument (which, judging by looks, may be his education level to be fair.). The irony of the image, of course, being that this man is using free speech to be blatantly and offensively racist while protesters make similar imagery by burning the US flag to protest their status and exploitation in America. The flag stands for a certain set of ideals that a certain few people feel aren't being lived up to. It is 100% their choice to do so and I don't feel that it's un-American to do so. The Supreme Court agrees, which is why it's fucking. legal.

Sure, it can be offensive and it can send a message and upset you or whatever, but a reaction like this is disgusting. The same disrespect this well-to-do (mental note: do not say 'hick'...) hick feels about people burning the flag is far and away second to the disrespect black people feel from the force that's supposed to keep them safe. This reaction gets us no where and asks all the wrong questions. When your patriotism overpowers your love and protection of a nation's ideals, promises, and convictions you're no longer a true patriot.

Ugh. And to see some of my friends support this image. #Baltimore

There's something about casually dating on Tinder or Grindr or OkCupid that completely numbs you to people that would otherwise be incredible. "Oh, you're a so-and-so too? So was that last dude I went on a date with...." I had been doing that so long that I was beginning to think that I was permanently degrading my ability to be intimately attached to someone. Dating was so casual and easy that it started to feel routine. That's, admittedly, how it felt when I first matched with Shane on Tinder. "Oh, he's cute.... Yeah, I can do a date," I thought as I sat cross-legged on by bed in my underwear eating Indian food, recovering from Coachella (minus the Tinder-ing, this is now a tradition I continued this year as well).

Somehow, Shane gets me to agree to go to the Embarcadero for a drink instead of the Mission where I'd usually take my dates so I could at least take them back to my place to find out what they were packing if the date wasn't going well. Seriously. That's the chore dating had become to me, but it wouldn't be that way with Shane. Instead, we talked. And we talked. And we talked. My fears of never being able to be attached slowly drifted away and I found myself thinking about this curly-headed, broad-shouldered man constantly. "Ugh. Feelings. The worst."

A year later, I'm so much happier than I was. Frankly, dating Shane fucking rocks and I'm having a hard time imagining my life without having started doing so. I'm not sure when people exactly start dating anymore. Is it on the first Tinder match? Is it when I make my date-ee Facebook official without asking him first? (oops) But what I do know is that I "met" Shane a year ago. Ever the balancing force in my day-to-day, ever the challenger of my outbursts, ever the supportive boyfriend, ever the person to enjoy any moment with, ever the wonderfully thoughtful and driven human being - Shane has been with me (for some reason...) since.

And yes. Feelings are still the worst. They are gross and they are icky and they make you weak and when you have someone like Shane they're too god damn strong and that's terrible. What? Me, deflecting? Definitely not. Well, actually... Yes. And this the only time I'll admit it.

"What sets the Apple Watch Edition apart from your average Rolex is the everyone knows exactly how much it costs. People will be like, "Ho. Ly. Shit. Doesn't that thing cost like $10,000?" Then people will know you have that much money."

I honestly, sincerely, 100% believe that this is the worst thing Apple has made within the last decade. Apple has always been uncomfortable close to having their products be status symbols over functional technology. With the Apple Watch Edition, Apple is basically saying, "Fuck you. You'll buy it because you care about asserting your status. We're motherfucking Apple." And THAT is what bothers me the most about this watch and the people who buy it. San Francisco tech culture already has a serious perception issue with copious consumption and Apple isn't doing its community any favors.

Goodbye iMac! Hello first PC I've ever built!*
More pictures including benchmarks: http://redd.it/3e7zdn

So, here's the White Knight in all of his glory. Building him in such a small case was definitely an undertaking for my first PC and my cable management needs some tidying up (don't hate me), but I learned a ton about how this whole thing works. It was simultaneously simpler and more fascinating than I expected. The most interesting part was realizing how hot the CPU gets and how it's cooled down. YOU STICK COPPER ON IT THAT'S CONNECTS TO TUBES WITH WATER THAT PASS THROUGH A RADIATOR!?!? GENIUS! Additionally, the case is truly fantastic. Super well built and the LED light inside + ability to control fan speed is gnarly.

We hit a few snags. First was that the cooler wouldn't fit on the back of the case where it was "supposed" to go. Instead, we hooked the fan up to the side. Second, the PSU was too big to keep the HDD rack in the computer. So I removed it along with the 3TB HDD I had. Right now my computer only has a 500GB SSD and I'll get another once I fill that one up. Honestly, it worked out for the best. Now I have to get two SSD's and there's a bunch of space in front for the wires to hang out with awesome airflow.

But that was it! The rest was totally smooth sailing.

Also, he can run Tomb Raider on Ultimate Settings at about 100FPS. Very excited. Exactly what I needed him to do.

Parts
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0 GHz Quad-Core Processor (up to 4.4 GHz)
Video Card: PNY GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB
Cooler: Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury White 16GB (2x8GB)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WiFi Mini ITX LGA1150
Case: Corsair 380T Mini ITX - White
PSU: Antec TruePower Classic 750W 80+ Gold
Monitor: BenQ XL2720Z 144Hz 27"
TOTAL: $2,669

Dear everyone who ever told anyone like me that we can't marry who we please, that our nation is against us, that they love us but not our sin, that America is a "Christian nation", that marriage is about procreation, or that we are "already equal" with civil unions...

Dear everyone who ever told a child to be disgusted by a same sex couple, to not be themselves, to "not think that way", or who repressed or punished them for being different...

Dear everyone who ever worked against this day...

Dear everyone who ever called me a faggot...

On narrative devices...

Everything should be used a narrative device. Murder. Love. Rape. Torture. Luck. Violence. Compassion. Magic. Everything.

There aren't certain topics that are off limits because they upset you and saying, "It's been done before!" is, under no circumstance, a valid criticism of these tropes. There are only so many things a person can do to another person. The real joy and intrigue is watching how different characters with different experiences react to them. Every depiction of anything can be justified. To say that it can't puts unfair, subjective limitations on artistic expression that push your personal agenda.

We shouldn't judge television, movies, or books on which narrative devices they use, but rather how they justify characters reactions to them. We should be bored by seeing the same thing over and over again, but not outraged. Our outrage should be directed at media that doesn't justify the use of their narrative devices by using them for exploitative purposes that don't move the plot forward or challenge characters.

Moreover, characters do not earn strength once or earn their status of a villain with one act. To say that someone was challenged once and doesn't "deserve" to be challenged again discredits that character's arc and purpose.

And that, my friends, is why the rape in Game of Thrones is nothing that should upset you deeply until you see a few more episodes.

Just my thoughts :)

A week with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: A Review

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most surprising phone released within the past year. Why? Because I didn't think Samsung could make something this good. Usually tied up in figuring out how to add every feature under the sun, Samsung's "selling points" were quickly becoming annoyances. The S5 was waterproof - but you had to pry off a protective cover every time you wanted to charge it. It had a micro SD slot - but holy god was it slow when loading your gallery. It had facial recognition, eye tracking, tilt scrolling, and some gestures I've long forgotten to ignore calls - but none of them made the phone easier to use. All of it made for great commercials, but none of it made for a good user experience.

This year, Samsung went back to the drawing board, isolated a few nerds, and created the best Android phone that has ever been made. Period.

Hardware and Design
When HTC, maker of the elegantly manufactured M8, was facing off against Samsung at Mobile World Congress, no one could have expected that Samsung, maker of cheap feeling plastic phones, would be the one getting all the praise for exceptional hardware. But man, does Samsung deserve that praise.

What I like most about Samsung, as a brand, is that they've been able to swallow their pride. While HTC rests on its laurels with a three-year-old design, Samsung said, "Hey. You're right. Our flagship line does feel a little cheap. Let's spend the cash to improve that experience for you." And it did. The S6's Gorilla Glass 4 back replaces the S5's removable, BandAid-textured plastic back and real aluminum replaces last year cheap, chrome-painted plastic rim. The metal rim has the volume and power buttons at EXACTLY the right place. Seriously. It's magical. They are perfect. Now, hearing about the glass back may sound like the phone is more fragile than previous iterations and conjure horror stories of the iPhone 4 and Nexus 4, but it shouldn't. Corning's Gorilla Glass has been massively improved and a few drops from yours truly can confirm that it holds up. More thorough drop tests on YouTube confirm that the phone is exceptionally tough.

The front of the phone is made from the same glass. It's just as tough. On the front you'll find a physical home key with a fingerprint reader a la iPhone 6 and capacitive buttons for back and multitasking in lieu of on screen buttons. I actually prefer this approach to on screen buttons, but wish the back button was swapped with the multitasking button since I have large, scary, manly hands. (Or just relatively large, very normal hands. You know, whatever....)

The headphone jack is on the bottom (thank god) and the micro usb charging port faces the right way with the longer end on the bottom and the shorter end on top (THANK GOD). Why manufacturers ever swapped this is a mystery to me. The bottom is also where you'll find the lone, stereo speaker. The bottom is also where you'll see every tech site ever compare the S6 to the iPhone. They'd be right. But I don't care. Android steals from Apple. Apple steals from Android (cough notification bar cough). Everything copies everything. Get over it.

I've heard some criticize the S6 for having a flat back and feeling slippery to hold, but I couldn't disagree more. The back has a good grip on your hands and the flatness of it makes the phone feel especially premium. That doesn't mean the phone lays flat however. Man, there is quite the camera bump on this device (about 1/4th the thickness of the entire phone), but it's not a deal breaker - even if I have to be a little more thoughtful about making sure none of my phone overhangs off the table when I put it down. More on the camera later. Also on the back is a heart rate scanner I will never use next to the flash. 

Waterproofing, Removable Battery, and Micro SD
All three are gone. Why? Because most people don't use that shit and Samsung wants this to be the best selling Android phone in the world. Don't like it? Sorry. Samsung has decided to focus on the mass market and, thankfully, that includes increasing the quality of the hardware at the expense of some geeky features (and the expense of your wallet if you want the 64GB or 128GB version). That may sound abrasive, but ask yourself.... Did you REALLY use any of those that often? 

Thankfully, fast charging is here and it works like a dream. "But I don't WANT to carry around a fast charger! I want to carry around my batteries and always wonder which ones are charged and which ones aren't and the special battery charger for my spare batteries!" Shut. Up.

The Screen
I bet you want to hear what I think about the edge part of the Edge. It's coming. But as for the screen? Fucking. Shit. This is the best smartphone display out there - and I'll tell you why: OLED. OLED displays have come so far in the last couple of years, with Samsung's investment in them clearly paying off. If you didn't know, OLED displays are different than LCD displays (like the one found in the iPhone) because they can light up individual pixels to use less power. Black or dark colors use less power than whites or bright colors. The colors on the S6 absolutely dazzle, but, if the saturation is too much for you, you can change the screen calibration in settings. 

Now, let's talk about that resolution: 2560x1440 with 577pixels-per-inch. You can't see a pixel on this phone, no matter how close you look. While this would normally be a huge battery drain, Samsung's AMOLED technology makes sure the screen is uber-power efficient - and it is. Is this resolution necessary? Who the fuck cares what's necessary? Half the shit you own isn't necessary. What's true is that it's awesome, crystal clear, and makes my friends say, "Wow." Mission. Accomplished.

TouchWiz and Performance
I don't care if my phone can run Grand Theft Auto while updating all of its apps while accessing the Pentagon. I care about my phone feeling fast when I'm doing day to day things like opening photos, switching apps, loading webpages, and won't buckle while multitasking. The S6 completely succeeds at this. To get geeky, the S6 uses Samsung's own 14 nanometer Exynos Octo-core chip clocked at - ugh. It doesn't matter. What does matter is that Samsung packed a hugely powerful chip that they've been able to easily optimize. It shows.

After I halved all of Android Lollipop's animations in developer settings, the phone flies. Switching apps is seamless. Editing photos is quick and easy. WiFi is super speedy. The download booster that downloads files using 4G and WiFi actually works. The camera opens in just over one second with a double tap of the home button NO MATTER WHAT. Navigating menus never stutters. It's seriously impressive. Despite all that awesomeness, sometimes my widgets take an extra second to load, but it's nowhere near as show stopping as with my past Android devices. 

Samsung's TouchWiz is..... generally annoying, too bubbly, and difficult to navigate. This time though? Not so much. I barely notice it. The settings menus still isn't perfect and having to press 'Sort A-Z' after installing every app is mind-numbingly stupid, but other than that? It's fine. Very close to stock Android with some genuinely useful tricks, like that double tap of the home button to open the camera. I don't have much else to say about TouchWiz. It will probably anger some people more than it does me and other people won't notice it at all. For me, it's good enough in the most polite way possible.   

The Camera
That bump in the back is worth it. This camera is the best camera on an Android phone. Ever. Photos are always crisp, saturated, in focus, and beautiful. The 16MP rear shooter is a camera you can feel confident about whipping out. It will stand toe-to-toe with the iPhone 6 and, in low-light situations, it will beat the iPhone 6 (albeit with some warmer tones). The interface is dialed back (just like TouchWiz) and the shutter is snappy. 

The 5MP front camera was a surprise. It's.... really good. Like, almost better than my M8's main camera. That's not saying much for the M8, but the point here is that this front camera is stellar. Subjects look far enough away that selfies are beginning to look like someone else took the photo for you.

There isn't much else to say about the camera. Sure, it can shoot 4K video, has auto-focus tracking, and can take slow-mo videos, but the coolest thing about this camera is that you don't really have to think much about it. If you've owned an Android (or considered switching from iPhone), I'm sure you've asked yourself whether it was worth the sacrifice in the camera departure, both in regards to features and quality. Worry no longer. The S6 delivers.

Battery Life
I use my phone. A lot. Here's my day: unplug phone, go to work, use phone, charge phone before leaving work at work, use phone, go to bed, and charge phone. That's been my routine for the past four years. It continues to be my routine. The S6 doesn't have out of this world battery life. In fact, some days I've wondered how it got so low so fast. But I've wondered that with my iPhone 6 too. Bottom line is that fast charging really is your best friend and that this won't won't disappoint, but also won't wow, in the battery life department.

If you're in a jam, power saving and ultra power saving modes are available. And they kick ass. Use in dire situations. 

Audio
I don't know who these people are that want surround sound on their phones and who are willing to make the design sacrifices for giant, front-facing speakers and a big black bar (zing to HTC. Again.). Honestly, 90% of the time, my phone's audio is coming out of headphones or my car or a Jambox or my sound bar. The other 10% of the time, I just want it to be loud enough to hear my podcasts in the shower. The S6 is loud. That's for sure. The audio is not the best quality, but it's not noticeably bad. It IS noticeably loud. This was the right call for Samsung to make and I no complaints in the sound department. This includes call quality. 

The Edge
And now for the part you've been waiting for: the edge of the Edge. The Edge does not have a killer "feature" or functionality to revolutionize the way we interact with our phones. You may hear a lot of criticism about for the phone for those reasons. But here's the deal.... Those people don't know what they're talking about. The Edge is awesome because it looks (and feels) awesome. That's why it exists and that's a good enough reason.

Because the screen tapers off, the metal sides are thinner. I don't feel like this makes the phone feel too sharp or slippery, but I can see how certain hands could feel that way. To me, the thinner metal sides let the screen's bezels melt away and the curved glass makes video / images more immersive than ever. Hey! Maybe that is a feature! Again, who cares. It looks and feels awesome, but I recommend playing around with it before dropping the extra $100 for something that looks cooler. This decision totally depends on your situation.

As for me? I made the right choice. I like new and different things. I want my phones to be eye-catching and interesting. The S6 Edge is both. 

Overall
There are some features I didn't go into (like wireless charging or the still annoying Verizon bloat or the Edge's my favorite 5 people feature I use more often than I thought I would), but the bottom line is that all of the main criteria that should decide whether or not you should buy a phone are met - and not just for Android, but for every phone out there. Snappy performance. Worry free camera that produces striking shots. A screen that wows (and can be easily seen in broad daylight). The Samsung Galaxy S6 literally has it all. Phones aren't perfect yet, but man. This phone comes damn close.

I was fully expecting to get the M9 this cycle (thanks, in large part, to leaks that ended up being fabricated), but Samsung has won me back. Here's to hoping this is the start of a most customer-centric company that continues to push boundaries in both hardware and performance. I like this new Samsung - and I love my S6.

Um.. do you know about us new S6 Edge owners with broken phones and Samsung not anxious to support. Wait for a fix to screen rotation fail before you buy S6 Edge.
