The Fourth of July

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Marlene says: Cross posted from Fukshot I love the fourth of July. I’m conflicted about parts of it, but uncomplicated relationships are for uncomplicated minds. I loathe the standard fare patriotism and invented right wing history that this date invokes, but the negatives associated with this date don’t outweigh the positives for me. Historically, July […]

New Years Revolutions

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Lynne Murray says: A New Year’s Revolution is in the works (no, not wrestling pay-per-view or Myspace folk/indie/punk singles–I guess there are a few revolutions going on for the holiday).

It means a lot to us that Nudes for the Holidays pleased so many people. Women En Large: Images of Fat […]

Family Fun at the Atomic Testing Museum

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Debbie says: Thursday was the 64th anniversary of the United States’ atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima, Japan. Tomorrow is the 64th anniversary of the United States’ atomic bomb attack on Nagasaki, Japan. Sixty-four years later, these remain the only two times that nuclear weapons have been used in warfare. To commemorate what should be a […]
