this shit happened at a FEMINIST convention

June 3rd, 2008 (07:59 pm)

A feminist science fiction convention should be the one place in the universe that women are safe from this bullshit:

http://community.livejournal.com/wiscon/154275.html?#cutid1

A woman got, of course anonymously, attacked on a blog by someone who hated the very sight of her, judged her horrendously BY APPEARANCE and took her rant straight back to fascist halls of high schools past.

purplefrog26 is my personal hero, because if that was done to me I would have read that darkness-dwelling fucktard like the morning paper.

purplefrog26 , you are beautiful. BTW I really could use a body positive masseuse. I hope to see you at the next Wiscon. Bless.

I can't imagine this artist NOT being a buffy fan

March 22nd, 2008 (12:18 pm)




Buffy Summers #2, cross-stitch work by Stacia Yeapanis, is going to be featured as part of a group show opening Fri 3/21, 7-11 PM, at Medicine Park, 2659 W. Chicago, 773-255-5582

I'm seriously toying with going to this. I don't know if other fan-related stuff is in the offing, but it's worth a look. I think art galleries may ALL be closed on monday, so calling ahead will save you a world of annoyance.

Book Club - Discussion Group
Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 7:00PM

Book Club Discussion on Book V of The Lord of the Rings. The first half of "The Return of the King" - chapters from "Minas Tirith" to "The Black Gate Opens". Those chapters in between are really great stuff! Come on out for great discussion and great company. It's fun if you're reading along, but that's not required. We'll talk about the main events and also dig a little into the backstory.

Does pooh have to slap a bitch?

February 28th, 2008 (07:43 pm)

For real dude, mother fucking fuck on a pointed stick!

Okay.. here's the source of my consternation. I'm trying to friend simian records on myspace. I happen to actually like indie music, and a profoundly music geeky friend has been the Apples in Stereo's praises for like a minute and a half, and the stars actually lined up in my favor...so I decided to friend them.

there is some conundrum in a motherfucking riddle wrapped in partially cooked bacon, cause if you don't know the "right name" or "right email" it fucking sucks to be you. what. the fuck.
