Since I’ve been so bad about posting lately, I figured I would just share a little list of a few random things I like and let you sort out the rest.
#1: This guy
Now while all in all I think that the fashion from the Somalian pirates has been a little lack luster, I think that this guy is really holding it down in a sort of Grey Gardens meets anarchist super villain way. And in other news, aren’t these guys amazing! Whether or not they are actually fighting to protect their shores from illegal fishing and dumping, they are hitting capitalism where it hurts and, you know, it just warms my heart thinking about them.
#2 Feminist Heist Movies
You may think you know the Boulevardier inside and out, but one thing you probably didn’t know is that he’s a huge heist movie aficionado. One of my projects on the table is to start a heist movie night and for each screening have a demo of an o.g. confidence trick from here or something… we’ll see if that pans out or what. Anyway, heist movies are great, they are the only shiny, big budget, anarchist, feel good genre out there, the only problem is that they are dominated by men, though you can always choose to see them as potential transmen, (or in the case of Ocean’s 11, gay men) as I do. Eitherway, that’s a lot of transmen in the heist movie limelight and it is really refreshing to see a feminist heist movie such as Mad Money out there. It’s just fantastic, get it from the library or whatever but just see it, it’s mahvelous. Another great heist movie I saw is Lies & Alibies, which was with a whole slew of amazing actors and actresses and was hilarious and overall well worth it, though at one point they paint S&M in a pretty bad light, just ignore that.
#3 This Guy and His Accessories
Pitch perfect, pitch perfect. He also runs a lovely column on opera and what not called Trrill which seems a little defunct but check it out nonetheless.
#4 The Aire Fresco
Ingredients: Gin, sparkling water (never tonic!), healthy slice of cucumber and a dash of lime
A light, refreshing, adult, contemporary, spring drink invented by my partner and master chef, Bruiser. The cucumber is everything. It’s very pleasant and spiritually uplifting. The name comes from my Ecuadorian friend Antonio who says this every time he steps outside, each time with his arms out to his side and head tilted back. The drink is an homage to life.
#5 Milwaukee and it’s people
Every time I turn around I hear new amazing things coming out of this city, from the Cream City Collectives to a slew of mahvelous queer zines and now this! C-Con sent me these videos as an example of a feminist bike culture, enjoy!
