The very wise children of Judy Garland.

this is just to say again that i will hate forever any person who talked shit about this look

it was simple, classy, showed the spirit of youth alongside the grace of age, and people talked shit because they are misogynists who have no respect for eccentricity in women

end of story

(it’s like, this woman is one of the greatest performing artists of our time, and we are supposed to be shocked that she’s a little odd?)

YES

In the vein of the classic Soy Not Oi cookbook, Please Don’t Feed The Bears compiles three issues of the previously self-published vegan cook zine with a range of tasty and simple animal-free dishes. The collection finally makes available these long-obscure fanzines originally published in the mid 1990s. Here you’ll find incredible recipes for stews, soups, sauces, noodle & bean dishes, baked entrees, deserts and more! There is also a fair smattering of new material bringing this to a whopping 160 pages of deliciousness! These recipes are written to be simple, straightforward, and perfect for the newest convert to the vegan revolution! But far from bring just a vegan cookbook, Please Don’t Feed The Bears reads as a look into vegan lifestyle and underground culture. The book is thoroughly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and clearly laid-out graphics. In addition, the book also includes assorted rantings about music and the politics of leading a vegan lifestyle. Together the book provides easy-to-make and delectable recipes while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture. 

also on the high recommendations list is this cookbook. I knew it in its original zine format; someone (@rambleready?) gave me a copy when I’d only been veg for a year or three. I used it so often that it got dog-eared and water-damaged and chewed up by mice, but I bet it’s still tucked between books somewhere in my cookbook shelf. Please Don’t Feed the Bears is veg cooking minus the “oh no, what if I can’t find a kaffir lime” factor that can be frustrating when you’re first saying to yourself: “wow, if I ate at home I could feed three of my friends for what I’ll spend on myself at a restaurant.” not that restaurants aren’t also fun when you have the scratch to spare! but for me, learning to cook and bake — for myself, for my family, for my friends — has been one of the most joyous journeys of my adult life, and Please Don’t Feed the Bears has been a companion along the path for many years. 
tl;dr get this cookbook! it’s full of anybody-can-do-this recipes that won’t break the bank and it’s a lot of fun besides!

I would love to own this cookbook, but I won’t buy it as long as it is put out by Microcosm Publishing. As a survivor of domestic violence, I can’t support a business run by a partner abuser who has consistently run a supposedly “radical” business like an oligarchy. Boycott Microcosm Publishing, now & forever. If you want to know more about why, a quick google search will yield a multitude of reasons. 
edited to add: I also strongly recommend reading Brainscan #21 if you really want to know what underlies the whole Microcosm boycott thing. There are other factors but this one is central. 

I did this quick Google search as soon as I saw this note on my post; had no idea. I think everybody knows where I stand on questions of abuse and accountability, i.e., with all victims, forever.

Cathy G Johnson has been nominated for this year’s Ignatz Award in “Promising New Talent” for damn good reason. Visit her and vote next month at SPX 2014. Here’s her seriously good (and unfortunately timely) comic from As You Were #3. Visit this Tumblr next week for our interview with Cathy and more arts!

As You Were is a punk-comix anthology series featuring new stories by our favorite independent artists from punk communities around the world. The theme for issue #3 is “Big, Big Changes”, available for [purchase here from Silver Sprocket].

As You Were is a great read and I recommend it!

alag3mo said: Do you have any favorite films?

Not really in the way other people do - I don’t go back and watch my favorites any more, they’re not favorites like albums. It’s rare that I’ll see a movie more than once. I love The Texas Chainsaw Massacre enough to have seen it who knows how many times, and the restored print I caught recently was incredible. The Bride of Frankenstein is a huge favorite, the Universal Frankenstein too. Tod Browning’s Dracula. I love To the Devil A Daughter, this is not generally considered a great film but movies are as much about atmosphere as anything else for me. House of the DevilThe InnkeepersNo Place On Earth. The Baby. The giallo genre in general. Also, anything that is airing on the Lifetime Movie Network.

williamisstuff said: Though you won't be playing any songs during your book your, will you still be willing to sign Mountain Goats paraphernalia?

I wanna say a somewhat reluctant “yeah” because it’s not like I won’t be at Mountain Goats merch tables as soon as we’re back out on the road, and we will be back in a lot of these towns soon enough I figure. So, like, in Seattle, maybe tell the unautographed tMG stuff “next year, friend” and leave it at home: Seattle knows we’ll be back, the unautographed stuff will not be sad. San Francisco, Austin, New York - there’s just no hurry to get tMG stuff signed at the Wolf in White Van reading, everybody knows we’ll be back and I’ve been pretty rigorous about hanging around to sign stuff until the end of the evening for the past several years. Come unburdened by extra stuff you have to sit there holding, or worrying if it’s getting bent up in the backpack on the floor there. Oxford, MS, ok, never been there, if you’re writing from Oxford then bring the tapes and the t-shirts too, I will sign ‘em.

Cinquedea Short Sword

  • Dated: first quarter of the 16th Century
  • Place of Origin: North Italy
  • Measurements: overall length 54.4 cm

The cinquedea has a short, triangular, double-edged blade, with four grooves at the base - three at the centre and two toward the tip. The first two segments of the blade are finely engraved and gilt with effigy of knight on horseback under arches and between floral motifs, on both sides. The typical quillon with the arms bent toward the bottom and a small tip at the quillon-block is engraved and gilt with floral motifs.

The sword has a curved pommel engraved with floral motifs, the gilt bands feature inscriptions "AVXILIVM A SUPER" on a side, and "PRAEBENT VICTORIA" on the other. The bone grip has scales decorated with four filigree rosettes. A similar example can be seen in “Waffen im Schweizerischen Landesmuseum Griffwaffen I” by Hugo Schneider (page 56, N. 74).
