|A PATINATED METAL FIGURE OF A HARPY,
LATE 20TH CENTURY
Hi folks! It’s time again for the round-up of Harpy links. I’m prepping my colloquium presentation for Monday, organizing my bookshelves (finally!) and the piles of paper on my desk, and cuddling my sick girlfriend while we watch crap science fiction movies (Tremors 2 anyone?) together … so I’m not going to make the links list all that fancy. Please forgive!
The beginning of this past week saw a flurry of activity from the Harpies, including two posts from me:
- While buying medicine at CVS for aforementioned sick girlfriend, I happened to notice a royal wedding-related headline that seemed a bit … incomplete.
- I had the pleasure of reading Jill’s now-(in)famous Filling the Gap post on Monday and cross-linked it here and over at Harpyness. While the Harpy link has less than a dozen comments (versus Feministe’s 452 and counting), still worth checking it out if you’ve been following the conversation across the blogosphere to any extent.
- On Monday, I posted a web video from Susie Bright discussing her stint as an editor for On Our Backs, the lesbian erotica magazine.
And the week before that saw another three posts:
- A post about teens and sexting that turned into a thread that was half about teens texting and half about Sherlock slash … and to round things of, the person whose interview I was critiquing stopped by to speak up. If you want to see how all these things came about, do stop on by to check out the comments!
- I posted the trailer for a new documentary from American Experience about Stonewall.
- And way back when, in the midst of thesis revising, a web video of a baby penguin being tickled. I made no claims for a substantive feminist critique on that one.
The other Harpies have been busy as well, writing about Canadian politics, the royal wedding, friendship etiquette, reproductive rights, and other tasty and timely topics. Head on over to Harpyness to check them out.
Hope all of you are having a good weekend and best wishes to ya as you head out into the week.
