"car on a hill"
court and spark
Dear diary, tonight I am unhappy because i decided to wait in the library for the rain to clear up but it just got even harder. I am channeling my despair into my favorite art medium, public-bathroom-self-portraiture.
I like Tori Amos. But I’m a bit of a purist. I’m not too crazy about these ridiculous later albums, with their conceptualization and guitar tracks and modern ideas - Abnormally Attracted To Sin, Strange Little Girls, Little Earthquakes… Forget about it. That’s why my favorite album is Wedding Performance 1978. Definitely her peak year. Just my two cents :-)
yeah, money and space. i’m happy that i’m no longer purchasing those barnes & nobles “classic” editions with the shitty covers.
the little stranger is up next, i think it looks interesting, we’ll see!
that’s what i DON’T like about having the kindle version because in affinity too with the shifting time i wanna flip back quick to check the date but i can’t so it’s confusing at first. so yeah i want the real books maybe that’s what i’ll ask my family members for for christmas
she’s such a great writer though for the sweet stuff and the seriously disturbing stuff and the endings - it’s like, wow, that book made me want to vomit and hide in a closet multiple times but i still feel all warm and fuzzy
i’ve read fingersmith, tipping the velvet, and the night watch. so far the night watch has been my favorite - it’s the one that made me cry the most lol. (all of them had me misty-eyed though)
every sarah waters book i read i like more than the last one. they make my heart beat so hard i love them so much. i finished part one of ‘affinity’ today and i can’t decide whether i want to just read the rest tonight or take it more slowly and savor it
i’ve already been spreading out reading her books because there’s like nothing else on that level and i don’t wanna use em all up
im not reblogging the OP (because fuck that guy he’s got enough notes) but that “i’d like to punch a feminist” post became 100% more (not less) atrocious the minute a bunch of dudes decided to play the “male feminist” card and reblog it with “oh yeah? bring it, I’m a MAN xyz feet tall and weigh 329892 pounds me strong man you beta male mwa ha ha look at these muscles come and get it bruh DID I MENTION I AM A MAN? MALE FEMINIST! LOOK AT ME LADIES LOOK HOW GR9 I AM. big and strong i will protect you”
all of the fuckers ~just slow clapping it out~ are missing the fucking point in a most spectacular fashion
men protecting women from aggression by other men is one of the main goddamn pillars of patriarchy it’s not the fucking solution to anything
strip away the good intentions and you’re basically saying “women who are feminists can’t actually take care of themselves but that’s okay since I’m on their side”
dude if you are actually an ally to feminism spend some time to find a good post by a woman taking down the OP’s nonsense and reblog it without adding your completely unnecessary commentary (or the even less necessary selfies)
swinging your dick around and flexing your man muscles just makes you a tiny ideological step removed from the OP (who by the by conceded that he’d never hit a ~lady)
