“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • More of Freedom
  • Barbara Fister's post, "Nothing Personal: How Database Licenses Make Pirates of Us All"
  • Found myself on Billy's website, (his video zine reviews are great!) and this hits home:

    I told her that after so many days of being happy, I had sort of assumed that my depression had been forever defeated. She thought this was hilarious, and after saying it out loud, so did I. I can't speak for you, or anyone else, but for me, depression is always there. It's deep down.It doesn't go away, it just lays dormant sometimes. This is great to know. Because I can be on guard, and I can slay that motherfucker like a damned dragon the next time it comes back! (Or, just hide in my cave until it goes away....) Either way, the sun will shine again. Just gotta hang in there. And once you feel the warmth again, make the most of it!

  • I like how this is like those exhaustive line drawing exercises I used to do in art school in some way (but prettier).
