sheepyshavings asked: Are you participating in Wednesday trivia at C-Haus?

I am one of the hosts since I am on A4C exec.

Are you going to be there?

Been talking to this guy on OkCupid about my hair and hair styles in general for the last day. It is pretty adorable and awesome.

We also went to the same high school, but he was a freshman when I was a senior.

I am a killjoy

I will kill the joy around the topics of sex, gender, sexuality, race, class, (dis)ability, societal norms, body image, and so forth when you joke about the -isms in them, and when you reinforce stereotypes, and when you overlook safety. I will cut people out of my life who continue to be the people on the other end, no matter what information is given, and they continue to be, to put it bluntly, assholes.

I will kill people’s joy, and my own joy, forever.

Note: This little talk came from my queer theory class where we were talking about killjoy feminists and the idea of happiness. I will be commenting on happiness later.

9 more followers and I will be at 100… Maybe I should do something special when I hit 100? I could do a giveaway of all the things I am getting rid of before moving to the Twin Cities. I can make a zine. I can do a drunk dance video. I can make music with a dental dam. So many possibilities… Suggestions?

75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South. 

Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.
