If you haven't started following @BitchMediaLive to catch our oh-so-entertaining live tweets yet, now's the time to join in, because tonight we'll be live-tweeting the very special women of SNL episode hosted by Betty White! Rachel Dratch! Tina Fey! Maya Rudolph! Amy Poehler! Ana Gasteyer! Molly Shannon! Feminist tweets! You don't want to miss it! I know at least one Twitter enthusiast who'll be in the mix:
See you there! 11:30 PST! You don't want to disappoint Betty White (or this kitteh) now, do you?
For the past three days, a few of us have been participating in the Console-ing Passions International Feminist Media conference at the University of Oregon. Some amazing feminist scholars are here from all over the world, sharing their thoughts on everything from post-racial readings of reality television to the ways in which new media are affecting labor politics. We're getting some great ideas to bring back to Bitch, but in the meantime, our enthusiasm can best be expressed through the medium of the LOL:
Happy Record Store Day! Today, as you well know, independent record stores around the world are celebrating music with in-store performances, special releases, and all sorts of fun. (Click here to find out what's happening for RSD in your area.) Independent media outlets (like your pal Bitch!) need our support, so get out there and find an indie record store – stat! You won't be alone...
But you will have to fight this kitteh for the Le Tigre vinyl.
Easter is tomorrow, and whether you celebrate the holiday or not you can still partake in the holiday's most delicious of joys: candy. Easter candy is the best candy of the entire year – it's better than Halloween candy or Valentine's Day candy or even Christmas candy. Don't agree? Well, you can leave your thoughts in the comments section, but you're gonna have to answer to this LOLcat (or should I say LOLCabbit?):
File it under "Where have you been for the past 26 years?," and cross-reference it with "How on earth do you have a career in news?" (you have files for both of those, don't you?): Glenn Beck came out this week as being decidedly against Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA". Apparently, the song doesn't send the patriotic message he's always thought it did. Really, Glenn Beck? That song came out in 1984. You have had plenty of time to listen to the lyrics whilst hosting your tea parties and singing along at douche rallies (Sorry, Boss, but I think they play your music at their rallies). Well, we're pretty astounded by your incredible lyric-deducing abilities, and so is this kitteh:
You may have seen some news this week about a new line of Mad Men Barbie dolls. Not surprisingly, the dolls are lacking in the body diversity department, even though they are supposed to be doll versions of actual women. This is annoying, and a certain LOLcat is not going to stand for it anymore:
A Cheezburger spy tells us says Huh's work ethos is deeply felt and permeates his company; our tipster said there are a significant number of minimum-wage employees within the company expected to work "extensive hours without overtime pay."
Egadz! For a man who has built a bajillion-dollar empire on the backs of unsuspecting and photogenic animals, you'd think Huh could do a bit better by those in his employ. Rest assured, this does not apply to the feminizm LOLz here at Bitch HQ. However, this Cheezburger LOL has a message for Mr. Huh:
OK, so a few of us at the Bitch office might be just a little obsessed with Bravo's Kell on Earth, the reality show based on Kelly Cutrone and her fashion PR company People's Revolution. What can we say? It's really good. If you watch the show as well, you know that someone got fired on this week's episode for inappropriate tweeting (video here). Hey, NOBODY TWEETS ABOUT PEOPLE'S REVOLUTION AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. Not even this LOLcat:
Oh hai. So it's been a while since the last installment of I Can Has Feminizm?, but fear not: Feminizt LOLz r bak. And just in time for the sporting event of the season! (You knew that cats love the Winter Olympics, right?)
