U.N.I.T.Y 
The things we let men get away with
Subvert the patriarchy

Just when I was afraid I was the only one who remembers this movie, tumblr to the rescue. That’s Lili Taylor in stripes. I remember renting this like 3 times on VHS from the video store on my block in San Francisco. I don’t think it ever got released on DVD. Queen Latifah’s U.N.I.T.Y was one of the first tracks I downloaded stole with Napster; it runs over the credits.
The movie was basically improv - the four lead women have writing credit along with the director. I really want it to be available so you can all watch it. It’s not the best movie ever, but it’s weirdly compelling and I cried on every viewing.

Rookie Meetup in Louisville, Ky

rookiemag:

nunginosko:

Is there anyone interested in having a Rookie Meetup in Louisville? Send me a message! I made a yahoo group too. rookiemag 

Spread the word!!! I think I saw a post about a rookie meet up in Louisville before, but now I can’t find it :(

Passing this along! The entity known as Rookie is in no way involved with these reader-organized meetups, so don’t sue us if you go to this thing and, like, fall down…or fall IN LOVE. xAA.

KCPLers, Louisville is not that far away.

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters

they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”

The Velveteen Rabbit 

lazybookreviews:

I cannot…describe what Mallory has done to an already terrifying book:

“Can you take someone else’s Real,” he asked, “or are you stuck getting it on your own?”

The Skin Horse looked at the Rabbit then.

“What I mean is,” the Rabbit said carefully. “If something else was already Real. Could you take it from them, and keep it for yourself.”

“No,” the Skin Horse said, and his voice was a crawling black thing across the floor. “You can’t take Real from another toy.”

But the Rabbit wasn’t finished. “Can you take the Real out of a boy? Can you take his heart in your own self and leave him with a sawdust heart on the nursery floor in your place?”

And the Skin Horse did not say anything.

“I suppose you are real?” said the Rabbit. And the Skin Horse was afraid for the first time in a long time.
