    "when you’re writing a poem, no matter what you meant to say or do, when the leaving impulse comes, just finish your line and get the hell out of the room." - Eileen Myles, Inferno (via bobschofield)

    "

    “Do you guys keep a journal?” Nicks asked.

    Este replied that she kept notes on her phone. Nicks asked Lori to bring down her most recent red-leather journal, with its pages edged in gold, which she keeps beside her bed and writes in nightly.

    So began a lesson in journaling: On the right-hand side of the page you write what happened that day, and on the left-hand side you write poems, so when you have an evening where you’re like, “I’m gonna light all the candles and I’m gonna put the fire on, and I’m gonna go sit at the piano and write,” you can dip into your diaries and instantly find a poem and begin. “You want your journals written by hand in a book, because someday, if you have daughters — I don’t have daughters, but I have fairy goddaughters, thousands of them — all of these books are gonna go to them, and they’re gonna sit around just like we are now, and they’re gonna read them out loud, and they’re going to be able to know what my life was.”

    Then, pointedly, to Este: “And they’re not gonna find it in your phone.”

Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.  

nah bruh, can’t support this shit at all. 


I definitely can’t fuck with it, especially since the authors are white. Black Americans literally can’t get jobs because they speak this dialect, but when white people do it all of a sudden it’s edgy and novel. Just another example of white people profiting off of doing something black people have been persecuted for.

boycott this. also their faces

what do… what do thugs eat?? do they cook things differently???? what is a thug kitchen???????????

THIS IS SO CORNY. LOOK AT THEIR FACES, I’M SO SECONDHAND EMBARRASSED I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE.

(Short answer: no)
Five things to love:
(1) The URL keywords: retirement, feminists, jazzercise. It’s the little things.http://www.newrepublic.com/article/119578/ruth-bader-ginsburg-interview-retirement-feminists-jazzercise
(2) The fact that she quotes back to interviewer Jeffrey Rosen “YOU CAN’T SPELL TRUTH WITHOUT RUTH.”
(3) THIS:

"If there was one decision I would overrule, it would be Citizens United. I think the notion that we have all the democracy that money can buy strays so far from what our democracy is supposed to be.”

(4) Suck it, Ezekiel Emanuel:

"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will stay here. I think I will know when I’m no longer able to think as lucidly, to remember as well, to write as fast. I was number one last term in the speed with which opinions came down. My average from the day of argument to the day the decision was released was sixty days, ahead of the chief by some six days. So I don’t think I have reached the point where I can’t do the job as well."

(5) The Notorious R.B.G., owning it: 

JR: What is the opinion that you’ve written that you think has done the most to advance civil liberties?
RBG: Oh, Jeff, that’s like asking which of my four grandchildren I prefer. There have been so many.

Loving the sustained RBG love of late - this interview for Elle was terrific, too. Small snippet: 

Q: Does it make a difference having three women justices?
A: Yes, an enormous difference….When Sandra left, I was all alone…. Now Kagan is on my left, and Sotomayor is on my right. So we look like we’re really part of the court and we’re here to stay. Also, both of them are very active in oral arguments. They’re not shrinking violets. It’s very good for the schoolchildren who parade in and out of the court to see.

See it —> be it.

    "Sex makes me worry. Writing about sex makes me worry. Write your obsessions, some say. I’m obsessed with worrying I’m a woman who writes too much about men. Why am I not writing about the economy or science or climbing this mountain—and, more important, is that okay? I’m struggling between being okay that I’m not climbing a mountain and being okay with writing about my “interior landscape” and feeling like that’s just as valid—writing about relationships is just as valid as writing about going up a mountain, which feels almost exactly the same, metaphorically." - Elissa Bassist

    "you know what would look good
    you in my bathrobe
    you through a keyhole
    you on the run
    that’s the kind of thinking I do
    when left to myself
    so leave" - Lillian Dunn, from “Into the sunset, go,” bedfellows broadside III for Philalalia (via bedfellowsmagazine)
