    Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

    "If women think I’m sexist, then they’re in a better position to judge than I am" A great thing to keep in mind.

    Intern Icebreakers!

    This week’s question? Where are you from and where are you going?

    Lucia:

    I’m from Southern Maine (almost New Hampshire!!) and I’m not sure where I’m going and that’s the exciting part!!

    Lauren:

    I’m from many different places, a product of being an Air Force brat for a time and then a pilot’s daughter in a post 9/11 world. West Coast, East Coast, North, South, I’ve lived all over, even overseas. But for simplicity’s sake let’s just say I’m from Atlanta.

    As to where I’m going, I just want to keep seeing as much of the world as I can before I die. For the next year or so, New York sounds like the perfect home base to me!

    Claire:

    From: Halifax, Nova Scotia Going: to get all of the snack food at the end of this day

    Haley:

    I’m a California girl- born in the Bay Area but grew up in Los Angeles (so I have torn SoCal/NorCal loyalties). Where I’m going…I don’t like choosing a path and feeling all the other potential paths close down, so for now I’m still trying to keep that as open-ended as possible. But wherever I go, I’ll be chipping away at the patriarchy as much as I can!

    Aaaaand featuring our new intern, Sandy!

    Sandy:

    I came from the land of surf, sun, and retirement homes to find my prime in the City in the hopes that someday soon I’ll write/edit my way across the pond to Europe and the rest of the world.

    (Long live the Oxford Comma)

    “That I saw The Passion of Joan of Arc in such close proximity to Deep Throat is strictly random. Still I am haunted by it. Lovelace was apparently as hapless as St.Joan was fanatically determined, seemingly as ordinary as St.Joan was extraordinary. Yet, like Joan of Arc embodied social and spiritual forces that were most likely beyond her personality, Lovelace was fated to embody extreme and opposing social and sexual forces much too big for the limits of her self, for any self. Both women were torn apart by that which they embodied, yet for a moment glowed with enormous symbolic power.”
    -Mary Gaitskill on Linda Lovelace, Icon

    Viola Davis on Being Called "Less Classically Beautiful": You Won't "Erase" Me →

    "I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement (less classically beautiful) my entire life. Being a dark-skinned Black woman, you heard it from the womb. And "classically not beautiful" is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you.
    Now…it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you.” -Viola Davis
