“Then they would go out to eat.” I’m hoping this is either actually food or an allusion to head.
“There were two more entries.”
‘A manticore is a horrid monster having a man’s face, the body of a lion, leathery bat wings, and a tail ridged with spikes’
“His fingers dug hard into her arm, expecting an answer.” GoT was not a good choice of book to determine anything about my sex life. Especially not when pg35 is full of Targaryens.
“A thin whisper of sound passed the broken mouth, forced out on a last puff of breath.” …………..well.
… … … … you wanna swap books? i wanna read what you’re reading.
WAIT THAT’S SOMEONE DYING I THOUGHT IT WAS SEX
Kind of maybe cheating since mine was a graphic novel (Perselpolis by Marjane Satrapi which YOU SHOULD REALLY READ):
‘Can you help me lace my shoes?’
Perselpolis is fantastic btw
“At times she would come with me after work to a British-style pub called Dawson’s where ad men, travel agents and bankers hung out, and often she picked up a little Male something for herself, too.”
“Claiming that I had been slandered, I asked for an apology and a retraction of the false stories which all the press of Germany had copied, but I was simply laughed at for my trouble.”
“Then he goes back to sleep.” Sounds hot.
“The results strongly confirm the conclusions I have reached, by other means, about the etiology of depression.” So… this is bad, right?
“It is rumored among the brave and foolish who speculate on such matters that she may be as old as fifty.” …. Posted without comment.
“The weight should be born equally in the front and back leg.”
Hey guys, what the fuck is a book?
“Could I BE any more of a sign on a tree?”
Just scrolling through my likes and re-laughed out loud at this. WHY NOT SHARE THE WEALTH?
UH I’M PRETTY SURE THIS SCREENPLAY IS VERY CLEARLY TITLED!!!!

fuck yeah gloria goddess steinem.
“Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance….It’s wrong, and people in the street who feel the right to touch a pregnant woman’s belly ought to be arrested for harassment. Our bodies belong to us, and if we don’t invite touching, we shouldn’t tolerate it.”
“If our bodies are treated as ornaments instead of instruments, that’s because we are rebelling because it’s an effort to distract us,” she added. “So don’t be distracted. Why bother getting caught up in that?”
“We are supposed to internalize this ideal that if we just look different, we would get more pay…..And we’re made to feel that our bodies are ornaments, not instruments. Boys are told their bodies are instruments.”

So the thing about those open mics that I didn’t even get into because it made me hear red and see war sounds was how one guy at the end of his set started talking about how his buddy’s girlfriend had ‘cried rape’ on him and cost his buddy all this money in legal fees but how she got away scott-free for ‘lying’ and how she should be punished for it? Obviously that was the part of the night where I was just responding OUT LOUD ‘NO.’ ‘No.’ NO!’ to his every point (usually I seethe with rage, but wait until I have the stage to speak, but this put me over the edge). Ultimately he wrapped up this last ‘joke’ by saying that ‘all lawyers were feminists because of that bitch Gloria Steinem’ because of his friend’s ‘situation*’ and um.
THIS STUFF ISN’T RARE. THESE HORRIBLE OPINIONS ARE EVERYWHERE AND IT IS THE WORST.
Joe Stanton got up and owned him on that last point, but holy fucking shit, you guys. We’ve got so much work to do.
One time at an open mic in LA a “comic” kept making jokes about Chaz Bono and kept calling Chaz a “she”… He was not being “ironically sexist”… I can tell the difference. This was some old man who was clearly spewing hate. I spoke up from the back of the room and corrected him “HE!” every time, and I think at one point I sarcastically started clapping? I heckled the shit out of this guy because FUCK THAT GUY.
Katey: for the most part, open mics in LA are generally tolerant and no one gets away with that shit, but I think LA mics are more “Alt Comedy” friendly…
You should be following “Yo, Is This Racist?”.
I’ve got a show in over at Channel 101 on Saturday called WATCHES. See you there!
Paul forced me to wear funny glasses and act in this show. Then he screencapped me doing something weird with my mouth. I GUESS YOU SHOULD GO SEE THIS SHOW. WHATEVER.
I am wearing my new favorite t-shirt in this show, so go see it for that.
As a performance artist and futurist there is one thing that I have learned while working at the “IDEA” COMPANY - IGNORANCE ISN’T BLISS and we are all ignorant. Our Facebook machines help our faces get liked, a thumbs up for your thoughts as your brainspace is auctioned off to the retailers.
Your vintage suspenders aren’t holding up your personality. Your cat-eye frames can’t make you see that you’re a corporate slave. Tiny hats, hammer pants, frontless shirt, ironic cat. Go jump off a bridge, because there was an ad for it on YouTube.
Artsy Fart of the Day: Bubble Wrap Portraits
New York-based artist Bradley Hart meticulously injects acrylic ink into sheets of bubble wrap with syringes. After the injections are complete, he wipes away the leftover drips from the back side of the plastic, revealing an impressionist style piece. Hart’s work is being exhibited at Gallery Nine5 in Manhattan through March 29th, 2013.
I mean, this is NOT what “impressionist style” art is… this is photo-realistic portraiture in the style of Chuck Close, but inside of bubble wrap. But I don’t expect EVERYONE who works at the Daily What to have gone to art school I guess.
