We watched this video in class last night, as the topic of the evening was hip-hop. I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought I would share.

Sarah Jones- "Your Revolution"



I just read this book for one of my classes and loved it... Check it out!

Piepmeier, Alison. Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism. New York: NYU Press, 2009.


I've missed your face, G.

I saw this
Nylon article featuring Gerard Way a few weeks back and felt I should share... Mostly because I've always thought Gerard is a beautiful boy. And while "My Chemical Romance" hasn't been on my playlists in quite some time, I will always crush hard on Mr. Way.

I'm so in love with his hair in these photos!

Gerard channeling Robert Smith of The Cure? I vote yes.

Library Surprises

Part of me wanted to keep these gems in the book for its next reader...

Not long ago, I checked out Don DeLillo's "White Noise" from my school's library and opened it to find both a Trojan Magnum wrapper and gum wrapper. I laughed out loud and then felt like I should wash my hands (in that order). I also think it is hilarious that the last sentence reads "...frightened children appeared at our door for their Halloween treats"... It seems a bit ironic for some reason, as if I opened the book to these "treats." Thanks to the library for keeping me entertained in more ways than one!


Oh, Peter.

Because of my previous short hair, my friends used to call me Peter (as in Peter Pan), and I've been missing "Peter" lately. And while I decided one day (about 7 months ago) that I would try to grow out my hair, I'm reaching my breaking point... I want my short hair back!!! However, I'm trying to make it until I can at least put it all up in a full ponytail, which has taken much longer than anticipated, and because it's been so long since I've had long hair, I don't think I fully prepared myself for all of the awkward/annoying/boring stages of regrowth. I usually catch myself staring at short hairstyles on the El... And then the owner of that hairstyle catches me looking longingly at them-- awkwardness ensues.

It's become more of a personal challenge now than actually wanting the longish hair... I just keep telling myself I don't have much more to go. And I figure that once I grow it out and have a ponytail for a good week or so, I'm sure it will be to the salon I go!

I've also discovered that I am easily bored when it comes to my hair, among other things, so now I'm looking to fun colors to ease my hair doldrums... This should be interesting.

Anyway, here are some photos that I love (they're also torturing me a bit)...
