Not a usual post.

Hey there ya'll,

So i am a feminist as well as an artist, and originally this blog was going to be about my art, but i feel like i must draw attention to the nastiness of the non-feminist world. Last night i got sucked into Mad T.V. and even though i was a little tipsy, i still couldn't help but notice the really negetive vibes from this clip.

i can't belive that the goal of this is to laugh. How can i laugh at "the ugly woman"? and does anyone else have a sneaking suspiscion that the last bit was suppossed to be domestic violence??? I mean usually i LOVE Michael McDonald, his stewart charecter is really quite funny, but this??? COME ON!!!! totally crossing the line. But what do ya'll think???

Also I Posted a comment on the Deeply Problematic's 50 books for problematic times so i though you might like to post as well. Instead of me telling you all about it, just go check it out!!!
I posted about T. Cooper's Lipshitz 6 or Two Angry Blondes. I also mentioned Wally Lamb's She Comes Undone and his other book This Much I Know is True. Both are really really beautiful, and Wally Lamb is one of my favorite authors.

Speaking of books though i LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathon Stroud!!! it's kind of like the new Harry Potter, only more along the lines of Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials meets Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell.

Maybe, i'll keep up with the posting and maybe i'll finally get some of my work up on here for all to see....MAYBE???
