A little something inspired by having to make four U-turns and three detours just to get to the parking structure three blocks from my workplace today.

LIBRARY & LIBRARIAN themed vintage book cover MAGNET set

catalogme:

We interrupt this cataloging blog for a bit of blatant self-promotion.My  secondary career is an artist & designer, and I recently added magnets and greeting cards to my etsy shop featuring public domain book cover images from the 30s-60s: pulp, children’s, comics, and vintage erotica. I’ve collected four of these into a set of librarian-themed magnets, perfect for everyone you know. 

Well, almost everyone.

"All this is to say, it looks like The Weinstein Company doesn’t think all that many people want to see Snowpiercer. They don’t think a weirdo dystopian movie with a South Korean director and partially Korean dialogue where one of the main actors (the always excellent Song Kang-ho) is mostly unknown to American audiences and Chris Evans slips on a fish has mainstream appeal. Prove them wrong. Snowpiercer comes out next Friday, June 27th. If you can, if it it’s playing near you, see this movie. Pay to see this movie. Take your friends, take your family, take your pet fish. Stand up for original sci-fi that’s not Transformers 4 or, yes, Captain America 3. And see a damn fine movie in the process."

Here's How A Fake Feminist Hashtag Like #EndFathersDay Gets Started And Why It'll Keep Happening

brigidkeely:

There’s an organized, ongoing attempt by people from 4chan/pol, reddit, MRA/MRM sites, and Stormfront all working together to attack feminists on twitter— specifically Black feminists/womanists. 

https://twitter.com/hashtag/YourSlipIsShowing?src=hash #YourSlipIsShowing (created by sassycrass on twitter) covers some more of the issue, and , , and are covering this really well, including posting screen shots of discussions of tactics. 

Here’s a storify about it: https://storify.com/sassycrass/yourslipisshowing-documenting-a-hoax and here’s a quick look at how an authoritative state like Azarbaijan can control and hijack hashtags - http://www.katypearce.net/shenanagins-again-and-again/ . The 4chan etc trolls are using the same tactics (signing up at the same time, RTing each other, using names and photos of real-looking people, etc).

They’re targeting specific people, overwhelmingly Black women who are active and outspoken (and often critical of) movement feminism.

(NB that the hashtag SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen mentioned in the buzzfeed article was created by karnythia as a way of commenting on the failings of institutionalized feminism and the white women who predominantly run it, ignoring the needs and concerns of WOC. Trolls picked up on it and posted a bunch of hateful and ridiculous shit.)
