Monday Reading

Eyes Wide Shut (1999): “No Dream Is Ever Just a Dream.”
by Anna

For some reason, the other day I had the urge to watch this film. I don’t know if it was the weird conspiracy theory Wikipedia page I had been reading the day before, or whether I just felt like a bit of Kubrickian magic, but I watched it, and I didn’t hate it. I fully expected to think that this film would be super dumb and a waste of time, but it actually isn’t that bad. It is slightly self-indulgent, and almost intentionally thematically obtuse, and the pacing is quite slow at times, not to mention there is a strange fascination with having Nicole Kidman appear naked almost all the time. However, there are also many positive elements to this film.

I believe Shia LaBeouf (and Piers Morgan is a rape apologist rat turd)
by Stavvers
Actor Shia LaBeouf said in an interview recently that during a piece of performance art, he had been raped by a woman. I believe him. I believe when people say they have been raped, that they have been raped. I believe survivors.

Gratitude and Grievances
by GirlGriot
I could say that I’m grateful I’ve never been stopped and frisked. I’m certainly grateful my brother and nephew are alive and safe. But what is also true is that I am sick in my heart, that I can’t set aside my pain and anger simply to enjoy my sister-in-law’s amazing mashed potatoes.

Wow. I Can’t Type.
by Fact Check Me
whatever typing skills i had gained over 4 years of constant blogging fail me now, i cannot type anymore.  at all.  however, i still want to connect, and to say HI, and to report back on what i have seen and learned over the last year when i was away.  on my way out, i had been commenting, rather at length, about how and why our “movement” probably looks the way it looks, and acts the way it does.  the nuts leave.  i wanted to add something to that parting thought, which is that women are not meant to communicate this way — using words.  we just arent.  realizing this has been interesting for me, as a (formerly) prolific writer, because i still believe that getting the important stuff in writing, so we can access it both now and later is, well, important.  having our beliefs written out in a logical, unassailable form that is easily conveyed and understood by other people is important.  but it is just the beginning.

#286: Feel better about myself
by Break Up List: Things to do after a break up
This is a huge one for me and to be honest I'm not sure I really should tick this off the List because it's just such a foreign, fleeting feeling. It comes and goes in such quick bursts I sometimes wonder if the feeling ever really existed or if it was something I just willed/wished for myself so much I made myself believe it was true for a moment.
