So, I decided to read The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory because I thought it might be good for a laugh. So far, she's doing her usual Madonna/Whore dichotomy with Mary I being sweetness and light and Princess Elizabeth basically being a clone of her mother from The Other Boleyn Girl. Y'know, conniving, malicious, husband-stealy. And the protagonist, Hannah, is basically Mary Boleyn from TOBG: smug, judgmental, hypocritical, Mary Sue-ish etc (but she's not meant to be!).

And this woman calls herself a ''radical feminist''.

I think I just might do a spork of this book at some point.

Grrrr

Sometimes anti-choicers make me so angry that I feel like writing ''I LOVE HAVING ABORTIONS I HAVE AT LEAST ONE A WEEK WITH MY MORNING NEWSPAPER''.

RIP MCA

Now, I've never followed the Beastie Boys very closely, to say the least, but I'm still sad to hear that Adam Yauch aka MCA has passed away from cancer at only 47. Talented man, for sure. Fight for Your Right, Sabotage, and Intergalactic are songs I could listen to over and over and over again. Not to mention, he was one few male artists expressed sincere regret for the misogyny in some of his earlier work, and tried to make amends. John Lennon is another good example.


Also, I forgot how awesome the music vid for Intergalactic is in all old school sci-fi loving glory:
