if i have to see that “there were no beat women because they were all institutionalized” post one more time i am going to scream because like
there were definitely female beat poets and writers and artists who were legit out there and doing things, they were just ignored by their peers who would rather circle jerk over the same nine white men, and erased by history that didn’t consider them [important, popular, prolific, male] enough to be upheld as “beat classics”
and idk instead of posts like the previously mentioned that smack of “oh, what a poor, uncivilized time, not like we are now," it would be more beneficial to comb through the annals of time and bring to light the women who embraced that lifestyle??!!?
but hey, why do all that work when it’s easier to say they didn’t exist because people were so sexist back in the 1950s.
Yes. This. The one thing I learned studying history (and specializing in the beats. and women. this is my bread and butter y’all.) is that you cannot silence people’s voices. Their writing is out there. They kept writing despite the lack of recognition, the scorn, the judgment, the institutionalization.
Buy Elise Cowen’s book. Buy Bonnie Bremser’s. And Diane Di Prima’s. And Joyce Glassman’s! You are living in a time when Come and Join the Dance is actually available on amazon. Do people not realize how amazing that is?! Show publishers there’s a demand for the minimal amount of female beat writing in print now, and they may actually be inspired to publish more in the future. Funny how capitalism works.

HAPPY CAS DAY WOOT
man i just came back from watching the maze runner and it was awesome
it also scared the shit out of me cause im a wuss but i loved it!!
dean’s always opening doors for cas and it annoys the fuck out of cas so he starts using his angel powers to open doors like 20 feet ahead of time bUT THEN dean gets annoyed so every time they’re walking toward a door dean shoves cas out of the way and sprints for it. he’s been hit in the face a few times by doors suddenly flying open on him.
The winter soldier is such a great movie
Even the end credits are great. Actually the end credits are one of the things i like most about it THEY ARE STUNNING. So simple and powerful, and with beautiful typography UNF. The whole sequence is just—i tip my hat to whomever designed it.
But the movie is pretty awesome too.
my font library consist of more or less 80% sans serif fonts, out of which at least 50% are condensed families because im a sucker for cond fonts. the other 20% is a weird mix betwen slabs and serifs and weirdass fonts and this makes it VERY HARD TO DESIGN SHIT WITH READING TEXT ON IT.
because i have like maybe 10 good serif fonts out of a library of over 2000 fonts SHIT. i cant rely on Minion pro forever SIGH time to update my library i guess.
