Please stop objectifying women and fetishizing pretty asian girls dressed in cosplay. It's not nice. Also, I think your geek fantasies clips are pretty great, but it's ALWAYS chicks. There are gay geeks out there. There are girl geeks out there. And maybe if G4 recognized that (by getting rid of COPS, perhaps?) then I would watch it more than an hour or two at a time. But no, then the Jamie Kennedy experience comes on, or COPS, or sometimes Braniacs which is far too british for me early Sunday mornings.

Guy from OKCupid who keeps IMing me even though I put forth no effort to cover
Update on Friday night talking with Neil Meyerhoff, who's chairmain of the board of trustees at MICA, and of course my New York City trip yesterday, with reviews of 50 Years of Helvetica, Global Feminisms, Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting, and Comic Abstraction: Image Making, Image Breaking.

I don't think I've ever been so nervous presenting in a class before. For my Body Discourses class, I'm talking about origins of gender as one-gender (male, pre-Enlightenment) to two-gender (male as normal, female as other), and the morph that is sort of occuring wherein men and women can engage in behaviors atypical those genders due to the liberalism of society, and science, and technology.

Newest inflatable, with this semesters' printed pieces incorporated, rag rug (not finished, but that's how big it will be for the final critique). Last night I had a good time bonding with the roomies, but there was too much talk and not enough homework.

Okay, I'm a little addicted. I generally hate energy drinks, I used to drink Vault during electronic media and culture all-nighters freshman year. I've taken to blending half a can of green tea Enviga with a few ice cubes and some frozen berries to get in a couple more hours of work at the end of the day. My only wish is that I could get a flat at Costco instead of $1.49 each at Rite Aid.

So, I've been doing a lot of art with all the hair I hacked off, twice, in vindictive impulse and mourning. It's not that morbid, not that depressing, not that bad. I'm getting to work through things by making, and it's really cathartic and organic. In addition, Alison Smith may use some of my atomic print from sophomore year to make a housewife (a civil war sewing kit soldiers carried with them) for her Notion Nanny project. I think I'm going to try to make it up to Berkeley to see her piece there, I'm super sad that I only get one more class under her tutelage! But, I've learned a lot and had a ton of fun and been a hearty contributor in the class (well, that's most classes).
Did I mention that my rag rugging is going amazingly? I want to ditch all my other projects and rag rug for the rest of my life. If you ever do intend to do braided rag work, let me know, I'll give you some tips along the way.
I don't think I've ever felt as pleased with my studio work at the end of semesters. More on these things later, just wanted to share the latest with y'all.

A recent comment from my friend Susan (who blogs about oxytocin at hugthemonkey.com) sort of is spurring the following entry (original post here). Susan, you asked me why student affairs and not art?
The mind boggles.

Pew Internet just published a new report (by Amanda Lenhart and Mary Madden) that discusses the ways in which teens organize what information is on their various profiles on social networking sites to keep privy information far from the prying eyes of parents, teachers.
I applied for studio manager for the on-campus residential studio spaces available for weekly check-out to students, and from what I understand the assistant residential coordinator also encouraged one of my former residents to apply, at least. I'm frustrated because I really feel like I need a continued relationship with ResLife, above and beyond Desk Assistant Trainer and Desk Assistant. The reason that I need that continued relationship is that I'm planning on doing Student Affairs for a career.

Here's how I feel about roommates who blog passive-agressively:

To whom it may concern,
So, Brett Dennen is playing at the Recher Theatre on May 11th at 9pm with Animal Liberation Orchestra (who I don't know anything about) in Towson, but I was wondering if anyone was interested in joining me. Last concert I went to was Rhett Miller at Sonar with my big bro (excluding all the IlyAimy concerts with J & company).

I've been pretty exhausted most of the day for no good reason, but I've been plugging along all the same on all of these ridiculous theory readings for my Body Discourses class. I really have to start in on my papers, but my dad's visiting, and we ate a big dinner, and all I really want to do right now is go to bed (but I won't because I'm letting him stay in mine.) So, for all that I'm not super-present blogwise, know that it's because I'm working on final papers, reading body discourse and blog theory books and articles, reading the Critique Handbook, and figuring out what in the hell I'm doing for two of my three final projects.
Eight days ago, all I had to eat before my paschal seder was a mango. A sweet, juicy, delicious mango.

Okay, I admit it, I've spent a lot of money in the past week or two. But I swear it was on worthwhile things! I got new silkscreens on VictoryFactory.com, beautiful aluminium ones that won't tire me out as much as I print yards and yards of fabric.

The lovely sex columnists Em and Lo (nymag articles by Em & Lo) of Nerve.com's "The Big Bang", Nerve.com, and emandlo.com fame, and Will Doig (who wrote that article on ReadyMade mag as LTR porn that I told you all about) were a few of the writers in the New York Magazine article "The Urban Etiquette Guide." Sure, the guide was originally published June 26, 2006, but it's new to me. (Whew, that was a lot of hyperlinks.)

Despite the fact that I didn't pull an all-nighter last night, I am still one cranky, teary-eyed girl today. When I'm well-rested, I generally maintain my composure all day before drifting off, worilessly, to sleep. When I am deprived of eight hours of shut-eye? I'm a terror. Not only that but relatively completely unproductive.

Will Doig wrote a great article for online mag Nerve.com on Readymade Magazine called "Assembly Desired: How ReadyMade Magazine is essentially long-term-relationship porn." And it's my skin mag of choice, at the moment. So what are you waiting for? Click here to read it.
ReadyMade is a home-design periodical produced in Berkeley, California. It features ideas for things you can build from scratch for your home — everything from custom couches to coatracks made from empty Tide bottles. Its aesthetic leans breezy West coast quirk; non-sequitur T-shirts and Pumas abound. And I fit squarely in its target demographic: twenty-something urbanite with apartment-vanity issues. But I'm also part of another market that I don't think ReadyMade even knows it has cornered: the single and lovelorn. Subconsciously or not, they've created a magazine that is essentially long-term-relationship porn.

This past fall, MICA did a massive survey of its undergraduate students and their feelings on gender equality, racism, classism, feelings towards students with visible and invisible disabilities, etc. Basically, we find that in a "chocolate city" like Baltimore, it's the students, staff, and faculty of color that feel a lot of isolation and lack of support on-campus. It also doesn't help that nobody in upper management is a person of color, the highest-ranking person being the head of the office of Multi-Cultural and International Student affairs (who has always been completely useless and ignorant of working with Oy!, but whateva), and she actually has been given less power and responsibility over the past couple of years, for a multitude of factors.

As I wait for my lasagna with matzo to cook in the oven before heading off to a critique in the class I TA for, I can't help but think of the past. I think of the past almost as much as I think of the future, and certainly more than I live in the present.

The following is a list of information and knowledge that continues to evade me, despite my grown-up body and highly-educated mind.
