redesign update: refresh your browser

Thanks for all the feedback on the new redesign, and for the comments. I’m already loving hearing from everyone in a civilized context. Two quick things: Before logging in to comment via Facebook, make sure your privacy settings will let you do that (easy instructions are here). Likewise, your Twitter account needs to have a real name associated with the username (like this). Otherwise, they show you as an anonymous person, and I won’t approve that comment. Tragic!

Second, of the site looks anything like this (thanks to a reader and his clever file naming for that screen shot), your browser is stubbornly holding on to old files even though they’ve changed, and mixing the old and new designs. Trippy. Anyway: Press CTRL and F5, or hold down CTRL while clicking refresh, and that will force it to behave. If not, clear your browser’s history and cache, and restart it, and you’ll be golden. Thanks for your patience, and all of the feedback.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
