Substitute librarian in California. Courtney and her chinchilla Bambi. Yes my bra strap is showing but have you ever tried to catch and hold a chinchilla?

Wow, I had no idea that any recordings of Courtney fronting FNM existed out in the wild.

I would love to be in a band that sounds like this

Sorry for the extremely lengthy post on your dashes but this is so important

Shaun King has been going to work on this since day 1, never once trying to parlay it into some shameful “vote Democrat” plea (looking at you, Antonio French), and always investigating the connections of racist corruption and oppression going on in St. Louis/Ferguson. So if you’re going to follow somebody re: Ferguson on Twitter….

There’s something wonderful about Marvin Bileck’s minimal illustrations for All About the Stars.

continuants said I should do a cheese tumblr and I was excited until I remembered, I’m smell/taste handicapped from a brain injury and really can’t tell you what food is like. If it comes back, and my neurologist said it probably won’t, I’ll do a cheese tumblr.

INFOGRAPHIC: Checking Out America’s Libraries
(Via Electric Lit)

Libraries + infographics. What’s not to love?

Note more people coming for quiet than for library help. No wonder we get shushed and noise complaints about patrons and programs.

Dear Therapists, Doctors and Counselors everywhere: I regret to inform you, but the Internet is real.

Yes, friendships on the internet are real. Bonds are formed. Common interests are explored. Support is mutually given and recieved.

Romance on the internet is real. People meet through any forum from Eharmony to World of Warcraft. Then, for whatever reason, the relationship blossoms and they decide to fly half way around the world and get married.

The bullying, harassment and terrorism is also real. When we recieve messages that tell us to go kill ourselves, we genuinely feel sad and bad because those messages are real. When we recieve threats that someone is going to rape us or burn our house down, we feel the amount of stress and fear that is appropriate for recieving those threats face-to-face.

The internet is real. As technology becomes integrated with our lives, it will only become ever more real. No, we can’t just “quit the internet” to focus on our “real lives” because, sadly, the internet is real. As employers increasingly ask us to put our resumes online, as jobs require us to have smartphones and email contact 24/7, as universities offer correspondance courses, and goods and services are paid for with Paypal or Bitcoin, the internet has proven itself to be a very real form of interaction.

The Internet is like real life, with good people and bad people and job opportunities and scams all rolled into one very new form of communication!

Please stop telling us to “just quit the internet” to solve our problems.

Thanks,
Young People Everywhere

I don’t know why it’s signed by “Young People Everywhere”. 

I’ve been on the Internet for decades, since I was in my teens. I’ve had a mobile phone intermittently for over 25 years, and constantly (minus one six-month period) for 22. I’ve had a mobile emailing device for 14 years and a phone with a camera on it for at least ten. 

It’s been almost 14 years since I first dealt with a frightening troll and ten years last month since I first dealt with what felt like stalking (although I later learned that the stalky posts were by someone I then thought was a friend). 

This month marks twenty years since Friends debuted on NBC and inspired a mailing list out of Dartmouth University; in February, I’m getting together in Vegas for a massive party that’ll include vow renewals between people who met via that list, and I’ll get to meet tweens who were born because their parents met because of that list; I’ll meet friends I’ve known for decades who I haven’t hugged in person yet. 

My iPhone isn’t a distraction; it’s the keeper of my information and a lot lighter than the Filofax I carried everywhere in college and law school - and a lot more interactive and informational than the Palm Pilot I got in 1997. It holds my music and books, photos of my kids as babies and last week, directions, menus and recipes, and the ability to access and do so many things - and record them, forever. 

I see articles and self-care tumblr posts and tweets exhorting me to get offline and get into the real world. 

To paraphrase Snape from a completely unrelated context, “I see no difference” between “online” and IRL. For some, there may be, but for me, and I know for many of you, it’s all The Real World.

I was totally appalled that I took a real psych eval not so long ago and there was no discussion and zero questions about my computer/internet habits. I’ve had an online life since I turned thirteen. I separate real and online life sometimes and sometimes I don’t.

Laura Callaghan is a London based illustrator whose work has recently made its mark on the web. We stumbled upon her art on Tumblr and quickly became interested in getting to know a little more about this promising pop art queen. Callaghan’s work is a world of neon 80’s feelings, summer pool parties with your girlfriends, girl power and diversity. Azha and I were inspired by the inclusion of WOC in her paintings as we don’t often get to see the representation of girls like us in illustration. Check out our interview with Laura below.
