Flames You Can’t Put Out

Until recently, I thought the idea of “chemistry” was somewhat made up – a term people used ex post facto to justify liking a certain physical aesthetic.  Like if a guy went on a date... read on

  • Breaking All the Rules

    Today, I’ve given my blog entry over to a very special guest, my sister Jenna Kagel.  I thought you might enjoy hearing from someone completely out of the scene and in a happy relationship for a change.


    I remember being in college and hearing a story of a family friend who had... read on

  • Aristophanes on Creation and Love

    I went to the live Radiolab show at UCLA’s Royce Hall, which by the way was an incredible evening, and heard a beautiful story that I cannot stop thinking about.  I will paraphrase it for you as best I can, but really I won’t be able to do it justice and I hope you read more... read on

  • The Male Gaze

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    Pretty girls get things for free.  You may not like this, you may think it’s a terrible superficial tragedy of our society that rewards people for something they don’t deserve.  You may think it’s a double standard because men aren’t rewarded based on appearance in the same... read on

    My beloved NPR is in trouble as the House has voted to cut funding to NPR and CPB.  Ron Schiller’s part in this is now well-known – he was NPR’s chief fundraiser and was caught on tape recently by conservative activist James O’Keefe.  Not only did he have to resign, not only... read on

    My sister has been in a relationship for two years now and she’s very proud of the fact that she’s let herself go.  Not in the traditional sense of becoming unattractive.  She’s a gorgeous young twenty something who has probably never weighed more than a hundred pounds and has... read on

  • Hank Moody Syndrome

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 16, 2011 | 7:36 pm

    Maybe it’s because I live where they shoot the show, but recently I’ve felt like every guy I know in Santa Monica/Venice wants to be Hank Moody.  I love the show Californication and at first, I thought all the references to it had to do with some general wistfulness about just... read on
