Surprised and charmed to see G+ birthday wishes here from last weekend. Perhaps I should actually bother to log on once in awhile...

Photos of architectural details from a tour of the St Louis Public Library's newly-renovated Central Library. The Central Library is a Carnegie library and was built in 1912.

I lived in that library growing up in St Louis.

So #TellAFeministThankYou  is trending on Twitter. Here are some of my thanks, since the last is a bit too long for that format: 

to +Amanda Barton  for teaching me how to speak formally about feminism

to +Filamena Young  for being a reliable pipeline for awesome (and not so awesome) feminist news in the gaming world

to my mom, who passed on her love of ass-kicking heroines who didn't have to sacrifice their femininity

to my grandmother the Marine, who was a quiet, inexorable force of nature and an early campaigner for the ERA

to every teacher and administrator at my all-girls high school, for encouraging me and my classmates to make the most of every resource and every talent we had, and who made honors physics the most popular class 

to my father, who shared his loves of history, politics, and sports with me and never made me think twice about whether I "should" be interested in the same things.

and, though it's terribly anachronistic, to Charlotte Bronte, for giving 8-year-old me a heroine who was hard-working, independent, frank, and loving, and at the end wouldn't compromise herself for an "appropriate" path through life.

I love how much 2 and 3 look like bullies. I WONDER WHY.

For the record, the Rangers are my NYC team. I'm not much for basketball or football (as a St. Louisan, I grew up without the former and mostly without the latter, though I do still consider myself a bit of a Cardinals fan). As a member of the Cardinals Nation, obviously I can't be a Mets or (yuck) Yankees fan. I like hockey, and the Rangers and the Blues have no particular relationship, so, hey, that's my team. So the idea that other women are explaining "News of the NHL lockout’s end caused as much excitement in the male world as a 70 percent off sale does in a woman’s" makes me want to explode. 

And furthermore, most of my guy friends are WAY less into sports than I am. So please take this stereotype and shove it, world.
With the start of the NFL hockey season post-lockout, the hockey blogs finally have something to write about other than “hey, the commissioner was sighted on 6th Avenue this morning!” (I assume…as I don’t actually read any hockey blogs except occasionally The Bakeshop because Katie Baker is super funny.) The NY Rangers recently made a misstep, however, by opening up their blogging platform to some independent content aggregators, which led to thi...

Superman has always stood for Truth, Justice and the American Way, yet DC has hired Orson Scott Card to write him -- Card is an extremist Mormon who is on the board of the National Organization for Marriage and has openly advocated armed rebellion against the US if Gay Marriage is legalized.  He denies truth, opposes justice and advocates treason.   Why is this lunatic being hired to write Superman?


Tell DC Comics that you're not cool with this.

The number from Holiday Inn is outstanding
In his comic depictions of drunk dancing, Astaire used choreography to project social views and feelings about drunkenness, and to set up tensions between those qualities of inebriation and the precision and agility that his dancing embodied. Memorable examples include the solo number “One for my baby (and one more for the road)” in The sky’s the limit (1943, above), the “Heat wave” production number in Blue skies (1946), and the classic duet wit...
