"Coming out against the label? Wow. I guess I’m not aware of that. What that means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are—you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever. However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique. That, to me, is what “feminism” means. So yes, I’d absolutely call myself a feminist. And if you look at history, women are an oppressed category of people. There’s a long, long history of women suffering abuse, injustice, and not having the same opportunities as men, and I think that’s been very detrimental to the human race as a whole. I’m a believer that if everyone has a fair chance to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, it’s better for everyone. It benefits society as a whole."

I call them, alternately, ‘woof marks’ or ‘book m’barks’ but whatever you call them, print and utilize them to note meaningful sections of your favorite medical texts and whaling narratives.

“Imagination is the highest kite that can fly.” 

Rest In Peace Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014)

"I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"

Painstakingly Accurate, Beautiful Papercut Art

I don’t know if these were done with a utility knife or with a surgeon’s laser, and I might not be able to tell the difference. Bovey Lee’s paper cut art is incredible. We’ve included a couple of close-up slides to show you just how intricate these pieces are.
