Ecommerce platforms wordclouds – Magento, Hybris, Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce

Today I decided to explore what people write about different ecommerce platforms since this is… The post Ecommerce platforms wordclouds – Magento, Hybris, Shopify,...

Crowdsourced Season 6 Drag Race predictions

With Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race in the books and the new queen crowned, it’s time to reflect on how our pre-season forecasts did.

THE FINAL FOUR – Drag Race season 5, episode 11 predictions

We’re in the Final Four now, the actual final four that matters (sorry sports forecasters). Last week, Coco got the chop, which made sense statistically (she had a huge relative risk AND had been the first queen to have had to lipsync four times) and from a narrative standpoint — Alyssa got eliminated the week… Continue reading →

More variables, spinoff projects, and RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 predictions: episode 10

Second, Jinkx had revealed that she had a crush on Ivy, and the relationship that may have flourished between the… Continue reading →

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 predictions: episode 8

Wow, last week’s Drag Race post made the rounds in the stats and Drag Race circles. It was cross-posted to Jezebel and has been getting some pretty high-profile links. A little birdy told me that Ms. Ru herself has read it. I think I can die a happy man knowing that RuPaul has visited Bad… Continue reading →
