Procrastination Station #113
I’m rather a fan of this “profane calligraphy“!
Are these the worst book covers ever? Photoshopped kitten!
I read Celine. I swim a lot. Swimming a mile a day helps. Any time I spend with my kid sets things straight. He’s a very funny guy and he’s a composer. I listen to his music and learn interesting things about theory from him and that certainly helps mitigate the darkness. I teach in the Bronx a couple days a week, and being up there with my students makes me feel more at home in the world. I don’t know if these things make me hopeful really. But they’re necessary.
I don’t know the work of Cara Hoffman, but I loved this interview she did with The Rejectionist. Great questions, great answers.
I utterly love the idea of doing a bookstore roadtrip. Perhaps I will draw one up!
I know I’ve said this phrase before, but this is the best bookshelf ever.
You guys — the lovely Amanda Oaks, of whom I am a mega fan, is LAUNCHING AN UNDERWEAR LINE with her friend Jenn. It’s called Positive Panties (or maybe Cheery Knickers, for us UK folks!), and you can contribute to the Kickstarter that’ll get it off the ground right here. Please donate a dollar or two… or ten, or twenty!
I heard a lot of people slagging the now-infamous Photoshop toolbar tattoo… but now I’ve seen it for myself I actually think it’s quite lovely.
Ah yes, because that’s really all we feminists aspire to, funny or not. Forget about gender inequality and patriarchy and the War on Women and racism and ableism and homophobia and every other shitty thing feminists fight against, this is just about having a great train ride and a few LOLz!
Yes, I’m a baptized Sikh woman with facial hair. Yes, I realize that my gender is often confused and I look different than most women,” wrote Kaur, who is the president of the Ohio State University’s Sikh Student Association. “My attitude and thoughts and actions have more value in them than my body… by not focusing on the physical beauty, I have time to cultivate those inner virtues and hopefully, focus my life on creating change and progress for this world in any way I can.
This woman is a supermassive inspiration and I love her for telling her story this way.
I love love love this graffiti.
Tattoos = wisdom? Why yes they do.
This is sweet, heartwarming and awesome, and I want to forcibly make all my students watch it and take note!
I saw something very like this when I was in Athens — it’s A GREAT IDEA and I def want to get involved in some paint-bombing now!
I agree with this man’s EVERY WORD.
I desperately want a house boat.
A short, fascinating video on why it is we procrastinate!
Have a great weekend!
