Re: “Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

If we could travel back to when critters diverged into interior sperm depositation, therein lies the first of the fittest. resources were conserved, a next generation virtually guaranteed. Sex is wired into the amygdala of our brain, the oldest section of the brain and the first to appear in the head of animals: Most likely lizards, the oldest living example of evolutiion.
They as we smell our objects of sexual desire, thru a veromosnal nerve which comes from the nose,the only nerve wired directly to the brain. We actually smell a receptive person, and if the chemistry is right, they will mate, in a frenzy of sexual congresses. When the female becomes inpregnated, her smell changes, the male is no longer turned on,
except for the fact we are actually meant to be mostly monogamous, and the feel of her vagina around his penis, makes him fall in love and stay.
Does not destroy that pesky veromonasal nerve going straight back to his brain. All of a sudden he has a choice, head for the next available, ready female, or stay with the one he is with, usually he will try to do both.

Re: “Why Do We Stop Drawing?

A lingering question from "Down the Street," which I read some years ago: How is Marlys pronounced? Mair-liss? Mar-liss? Mair-lees?

Re: “Zombies Never Die

So I drift online while pretending to be sick at work and on IMDB I stumble onto a video recount of Guillermo del Toro which I discover is recounted by non-other than this douchebag...ERIK FLABNAGGIN HENRIKSEN! I immediately feel like Gene Hackman looking out the window as Owen Wilson sneaks out of Gwenyth Paltrow's room...."I KNOW YOU *SSHOLE!). Thank you Portland Mercury for allowing this sorry nerd to have an occupation...previous residents of Caldwell Idaho Salute YOU! BTW Ralph Smeed died...did you know that?

Re: “Girl Fucking Power

For people who find this particular brand of subject matter interesting, I kindly suggest snagging this fairly comprehensive collection of female-fronted punk rock spanning from 1977-1989:…

Quite a few of these songs are timeless classics, and have made their way into regular rotation on my iPod.

Re: “Girls! Danger! Explosions!

I thought Danger Girl was awesome...but $50 for seven issues? Couldn't you buy them for $1.99 each off of Ebay?

Re: “Portland's Scarlet Revolution

I hadn't really read anything else by Bendis, but either way I thought this was a great book with stellar art, interesting storytelling conventions, and a compelling narrative. It reminded me of a comic book version of "Run Lola Run" in a lot of ways. I'm definitely interested to see where this goes.

Re: “Hold the Celebrity

Fuck yea we would D.S.!!! Stories from a shitty no end job seems like reality for most.A lot of blood sweat and tears bring out the best humor under the gun down and dirty.Its Bourdains humor that stands strongest.Ask me what I had to serve an unsuspecting customer when he wanted refries and we were out.

Re: “Medical Marvel

Wow. This book should be required reading for scientists and students of life. The true story of Henrietta Lacks and her family has finally been told. The storytelling is amazingly moving despite the need to convey a lot of scientific information. It reads like fiction.

Re: “New Scott Pilgrim!! Squee!!

Subpar faux-manga and crappy, cop-out-on-the-plot writing. How this got published in the first place is baffling.
