bthny: feminist geography →
bthny: Some of you (okay, one person) expressed some interest in hearing a little bit more about feminist geography and since I’m stuck on both of my GIS assignments and the professor can’t help me at the moment, I’m going to talk about that for a minute because after reading like nine different articles… I want to contribute to a fuck yeah feminist geography tumblr. I have some...

This time, Model, and the only clip online is at Jezebel. I can’t get the Evan Picone pantyhose jingle out of my head. Nor can I get over what total dowagers are in the audience at the Oscar De La Renta show at the end. I want fashion to go back to being a guileless age-ocracy.

I love fosterhood’s tumblr, which I found via the also excellent thingsiatethatiloved. Written by a psychologist about her experiences as a foster parent, it continually explores the ways in which infrastructures impact real life. Excellent reading, and like Emily said, it makes you remember the possibilities of blogging as a format. I may assign it for a class. fosterhood: I’ve called...

Hierarchy without patriarchy? although this kind of makes me want to wear a pantsuit and read aloud from Backlash.
campus cranks vol. 1
I’m officially old and cranky. I just sent a letter to the editor of the campus paper. On a side note, I freaking love the “letter to the editor” as a narrative form. You have to use complete sentences, salutations, and other forms of address I barely remember the names of. You can ( and must) be shrill to make your point. Granny has a new hobby. To the editor, Today, as I was...
“Many books are screwy, a great many are dull, some are irredeemable, and there are way too many of them, probably, in the world. I hate all the fetishistic twaddle about books promoted by the chain stores and the book clubs, which make books seem as cozy and unthreatening as teacups, instead of the often disputatious and sometimes frightening things they are. I recognize that we now...

My partner makes his living writing about professional basketball on the internet, and to a lesser extent, in print. (When we met we were grad students writing about drugs and art zines, respectively. If anyone wants to know what you do with a background cultural studies, well, don’t ask us.) He’d been researching and writing for a new book on basketball history, and somehow a joke...

My high school has a rather active Facebook page, upon which there is a real circus of nostalgia displays. The school was, and still is, one of those magnet schools in big cities that seeks to integrate, in the very literal sense, the children of all of its stratified populations. Dallas is a big city without much mindful planning, and the school sits in the middle of it. (In the mid 90s it was...
