Roundup of Unusual Size: Please Sign My “Bring Back ‘Gynoid'” Petition

I’m baaaack! I thought about taking some extra time off, but now that I’m back to my day job as well I figured, why delay things further?

I’m in three phenomenal courses this semester which should help shape my critical output for the next few months. But more on that another time. I have a linklist to get to.
