Also, PS

Jen was like, “Honestly, when you invited me, it sounded like the worst thing imaginable but then I thought, well I hardly ever get to see Mikki and she’s usually right and oh my god it was the best night ever.”

IT REALLY WAS

A naked lady played a plastic oboe.

“Last week a two-time Jeopardy winner came on my stomach.”

There was a Dylan McKay reference.

There was a SCUM reference.

A guy from Hellmouth, “a tumblr-based music collective” read Buffy fanfiction interspersed with singing.

I kept nudging Jen and said “They’re in my coven!” when someone new came on stage.

This amazing woman played a medley of a doxology and “Mary.”

“The first time I ever got fisted was to this song.”

I felt like I was home in LA, back in a time when people just did stuff, for fun, and with costumes that they wear every day and it wasnt about being next level or even being that good but about being true and having fun, and it made me think of Jack Brewer and how he told me I was a poet based on one thing I had written, and life was like that then, and maybe it is now, too, or it can be.

i’ve actually never read that ugh failure as a preteen obsessed with puberty i just read “the care and keeping of you” over and over again srsly

It’s more famous than Forever but it’s less important. I really love it as an artifact, like all of her books, of a bizarre upper-middle-class gentrified Jewish suburban post-Kennedy (but pre-Reagan) consumer culture. It’s Aspirational and alien to me. Read it in conjunction with her contextually similar books—Forever, Summer Sisters, Wifey. (Really, you should read these things, they’re all super quick.) I also think it pairs well with Prozac Nation, for what it’s worth.

LISA BRIGHT AND DARK

I NEVER PROMISED YOU A ROSE GARDEN

GO ASK ALICE

I should just hand those books and a copy of Nervous Breakdown to everyone I meet.

Life is good when you go into the bar after a Sarah McLachlan tribute show and they’re playing "This Is What Makes Us Girls."

Got A Girl Crush On: Feminist Zine, Shocking Pink

girlsgetbusyzine:

Shocking Pink was a feminist zine put out by a collective of young women in London, including Katy Watson who died in 2008. As the organiser of last year’s Women’s Library described it ‘Shocking Pink, which ran from the late 1980s to early 1990s, billed itself as a “radical magazine for young women”. Part magazine with serious political coverage, part school-club magazine (if your classmates were hot-headed, deliciously witty, rebel grrrls) this magazine pre-dated riot grrrl zines with its fusion of sass, cultural appropriation and sprawling biro-made doodles all over the margins and type face’.

.pdfs of all the Shocking Pinks available here!
