Merrill Garbus and Joanna Newsom: Media Narratives on Feminism

allthebirds:

It’s a hulu channel which currently has about 98 (mostly) full length live concerts from the worlds most critically acclaimed artists. It’s a lot like being at the show, but you don’t have to pay or go anywhere. Plus the beer is cheaper.

With our projector, surround sound, and dimmed lights it’s one of the coolest things I can do at home for free.

Buy Tiny Acts of Rebellion.

Proof:

"So next time you’re at a gathering, why not tell everyone you’re going out for a fag and simply leave without saying goodbye to anyone."

"Before the salesperson approaches you, ask "Excuse me, may I help you?""

When testing a free sample try: “I love the crisps so much, yet I hate them more than life itself.”

Make your own Do Not Disturb sign like: “I’m at your house now, shaving your dog.” or “Do not clean up blood!” or “Who cares what the sign says, you’re going to f*cking knock anyway!”
