Holland, Dozier, and Holland read and write.


On this day in music history: April 18, 1988 - The songwriting team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland are inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. The legendary songwriters are honored for their thirty year plus partnership that has produced over two hundred compositions, scoring sixty eight top forty chart hits in the US, fifty of which have made the top ten on the pop and R&B singles charts during their tenure at Motown Records and beyond. Their achievements will make them among the most successful composers of the twentieth century.

Today on Cool Stuff We Get In The Mail

In Once Upon a Playground, Brenda Biondo photographs vintage playground equipment and pairs them with their original catalog listings.

The result is kind of creepy — I would not want to meet any of these jungle gyms alone in a dark alley.

That said, look at that SPACESHIP PLAYGROUND.


Hey, don’t be harshing on metal merry-go-rounds. Those things were so much fun I’m surprised they were EVER allowed.

— Petra

Those metal carousels were The Best Thing, even better than slides and see-saws. You jump on and grab the metal bar and shove off with your outside foot with all your might and keep doing that until you’re going so fast the ground bounces your foot back at you then you hang on for all you’re worth and feel the wind in your face and yell WOOOOOO! Loved those things.

ComicsAlliance Presents the 50 Sexiest Male Characters in Comics

We know what you’re thinking. “This is lowbrow stuff, beneath the lofty ambitions of clever old ComicsAlliance, and hey, where are all the hot chicks?” But we do this not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Comics provide such a rich vein of female objectification that female character’s ranks on the Comic Buyer’s Guide’s 100 Sexiest Women in Comics list is treated asimportant information on Wikipedia. So we’re providing a little balance.

We’ve consulted with friends and experts, with readers on Twitter and Tumblr, and we’ve put together our own list of the sexiest male characters in comics. If you want a list of sexy ladies, some other site will probably have one for you soon. We’re not going to do that. We’re here to check out some dudes.Disclaimer: You probably won’t agree with this list, because it’s a list on the internet. That’s fine. If you want to make your own list, do so with our love. We think that would be great. Let’s start a conversation about sexy guys in comics.

Second disclaimer: This is all about comic book characters, not characters from movies, TV shows, anime or games. We know Tom Hiddleston is delightful, but Tom Hiddleston is not in the comics. You’re right, he should be, but he isn’t. We apologize for all of your feels.


I’m a female human who considers herself human first, and female by chance. And I get emotionally and physically exhausted by the constant onslaught of images and information everywhere on the internet that never lets me forget that a large segment of the male population gauges my worth solely on the size of my breasts and whether I’m ‘fuckable’ or not. IT PISSES ME RIGHT OFF.

So while I probably won’t agree with the choices on this list, I thank CA for posting it, and look forward to many more. If my gender is doomed to being subject to the male gaze, then I ask—I DEMAND—equal gazetime.

My first boyfriend. So what if we never met and were different species? Love is love.

"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.

"With language we can ask, as can no other living beings, those questions about who we are and why we are here. And this highly developed intellect means, surely, that we have a responsibility toward the other life-forms of our planet whose continued existence is threatened by the thoughtless behavior of our own human species — quite regardless of whether or not we believe in God. Indeed, those who acknowledge no God, but are convinced that we are in this world as an evolutionary accident, may be more active in environmental responsibility — for if there is no God, then, obviously, it is entirely up to us to put things right."
