A Rusty Little Box

"C'est drôle la vie. Quand on est gosse, le temps n'en finit pas de se trainer, et puis du jour au lendemain on a comme ça 50 ans. Et l'enfance tout ce qui l'en reste ça tient dans une petite boite. Une petite boite rouillée."

A blessed Fie-On-Labor Day to all.  May your stride on the great Treadmill be ever indolent.

weird timing— I stayed up until 3am last night rewatching this movie!

EXCELLENT post

“For me, feminism is a question: what truths are missing here? The feminist thinker and organizer should always be asking this question. What are we missing? Who are we excluding? How is our analysis true, but still limited by missing truths? For me this means feminism creates a posture of intellectual humility and a willingness to question ourselves as much as we question systems of oppression. I am always distraught to encounter feminists who are utterly sure of themselves and never willing to admit to their own need to grow, expand and change. That strikes me as inherently anti-feminist.”

So I’m really hormonal and decided to watch old Bush videos, and started crying because of this weird vague bittersweet heartache of how heartbreakingly young Gavin Rossdale was and how much I loved him and being 11 or 12 and listening to them over and over again in that terribly earnest way that you can’t capture post-puberty.  And how time just kind of goes.

Ramble ramble PMS ramble, or something.

I haven&#8217;t posted here about the Gonq yet!
I&#8217;m crowdfunding (read: preselling gorgeous books OR credit for use for self-publishing) to start up The Gonq Press&#8212; using an on-demand book printing machine (prints, covers, and binds a store-quality paperback book in literally a few minutes) to produce curated series of public domain classics with gorgeous exclusive letterpress covers, as well as wicked self-publishing options (&#8220;your self-published novel? Yup! Your thesis? Sure! Your granddad&#8217;s poetry? Definitely!&#8221;)
Please take a look, contribute if you love it (and/or me!), and especially please SHARE it!
