I have combined choice Girl Land quotes with cat photos here to both illustrate the ridiculousness that is this book and to keep you from having to read it yourself. Plus, everything—even rage-inducing Flanaganisms—is easier to handle when accompanied by a cat photo.
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?):
This comic-loving cat is very disappointed in the poorly-lettered drivel that is Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1. While Young Kim's quality manga-style artwork eliminates a lot of Meyers's interminable descriptive prose, it can't get rid of the book's counter-feminism and general ridiculousness.
Sorry, giant cat. Try something by Murasaki Yamada instead!
