“Just as it was misguided for reformist feminist thinkers to see freedom as simply women having the same right to be like powerful patriarchal men (feminist women with class privilege never suggested that they wanted their lot to be like poor and working-class men), so was it simplistic to imagine that the liberated man would simply become a woman in drag. Yet this was the model of freedom offered men by mainstream feminist thought.”

I was like, do I need another horoscope to read? But Karolina posted hers, and she is sound on spectral matters, and then I read the first line.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 22)
Be mindful of your tendency to expect disaster in matters of the heart. Nothing else would serve to create that more dependably than negative expectations. This works differently than superstition or ordinary paranoia. For example, the fear that your house might burn down is not particularly incendiary. You can check your extension cords, the stove and candles. But similar fears projected onto a relationship can have a profound effect on the emotional dynamic. Your fear will tend to increase as passion, interest and vulnerability become more real to you. This is a situation calling for mindfulness, and for honesty. Yet the one thing that is not called for is control, which will only stoke your fears. And nihilism—expectation that all is for naught, so what’s the point anyway—is a form of attempted control (mainly, of your own emotions). Your fear level will drop as you set yourself free to have the experience. If someone in your life means a lot to you, be willing to go where the situation takes you. Be willing to share yourself in a way that’s more generous than you might ordinarily, and by share, I mean generosity without expectation. Withholding is yet another form of attempted control that will serve only to strip you of your influence. I would remind you of this: we tend to love who and what we take care of. When you subtract that from the equation, you’re trying to limit your own vulnerability, which is like trying to have sex in a Tyvek suit.

(And yes, Elizabeth, this is all that you said on Friday xo)

Janet Koontz, Pat Bag, Joe Nanini, Geza X. The Bags, version 1.0

I have always especially loved this look, like The Weirdos putting tape on their faces or even the Residents and the eyeballs. Destroy all rock stars.

99 cents

OH MY GOD THIS WAS MY FIRST PUNK SHOW

I actually am crying a little. Shit we are all boomers now.

Go west all the way to the beach, words to live by. That’s how I used to find my way home sometimes when I was lost.

Caretaker’s cabin on Borestone Mountain, Maine.  

From submitter Jere DeWaters:

The cabin, along with two large lodges and lots of other outbuildings is accessible only by boat after a rough ride or hike up the side of the mountain.  Imagine my surprise to find a full-sized Steinway grand piano in the main room —in tune, too.  The caretaker’s cabin is just big enough for a single bed, writing desk, chair, and fireplace.  The door and window trim are made of spruce bark that has been peeled and soaked in the lake.  When it softens enough it is laid to dry flat and used for ‘sprucing’ up around the doors and windows, so to speak.
