It's encouraging to see men standing up for issues that really matter.  #prohibition #roaring20s #flapper #jazzage #alcapone

The notorious ban on alcohol in North America sparked both outrage and a renowned speakeasy culture of underground bars and secret parties. Hence, the 1920 also became known as the Prohibition Era. Photo: protesters against the alcohol ban.

A few weeks ago on the spring equinox weekend, Joanne St.Clair and I visited the grave of Sylvia Plath, who is buried just up the road from us. We had no flowers to leave, but being writers and poets, we happened to be carrying matching pencils and placed them in the soil touching each other in a symbol of artistic intimacy. You can see them in the photo about two-thirds of the way down from the “T” in her name. The epitaph reads “EVEN AMIDST FIERCE FLAMES THE GOLDEN LOTUS CAN BE PLANTED”…

Joan of Arc, an illiterate peasant who hears voices from God and speaks to angels after which becomes the only person yet in human history of either gender to be supreme commander of a nation's military at the age of 17. And, she even won and ended a 100 year war. Beat that, Robert McNamara. Know your history. You too, Americans. The Heavens and Earth were not created in six days and one of rest in 1776 A.D. #JoanofArc #God #woman #feminism #france #1412 #jeanned'arc

Currently designing the digital pdf booklet that will come with my album Beautifully Haunted when you purchase it from the iTunes store. Each of the 21 tracks will have their corresponding art on an individual page as well as the lyrics if the particular song has vocals. The background pattern is the foliage themed circuit board from the cover art for “The Dinosaurs Hiding in the DNA” which will change colour on each page. #ghostintheshell #akira #anime #adalovelace #isaacaasimov

“When a woman stands on her hands and feet like a quadruped, and her lover mounts her like a bull, it is called the ‘congress of a cow.’ In the same way can be carried on the congress of a dog, a goat, a deer, the forcible mounting of an ass, the congress of a cat, the jump of a tiger, the pressing of an elephant, the rubbing of a boar, and the mounting of a horse. And in all these cases the characteristics of these different animals should be manifested by acting like them."

Book of Japanese fairy tales... It's interesting to see where some of the inspiration for anime comes from. They seem to talk a lot about drinking saké, which is rice wine.
