Description:

 Newsletter on where I’ve been and will continue to be for a bit Heatherly Walker/Yarn Yenta’s book! And from Robin:  an alternative view point on the Walk Out Not Up movement.  In most cases of child on child violence, it is the bully that kills their classmate and that is generally true for the young school shooters as well.   Even in Columbine, the shooters were more often the harassers than they were the victims.  Here is a rebuttal to the Walk-Up concept Also, for some of the kids who are shy/awkward/different, Walk Up can backfire pretty badly. The Choose Kindness movement (along with reading the book Wonder ) is much better for bullying.  from Anna G: Wet nursing Scrappy Quilts even some quilts with 1x1 in squares! and Patchwork in Canada-Fannie Parlee's 1864 Confederation Quilt Fun with Alexander Pope should include: No one should be ashamed to admit they are wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that they are wiser today than they were yesterday. (my new fave quote) Amethysts in Nova Scotia Viewless Winds, Measure for Measure (III.i. l.124) CLAUDIO Ay, but to die, and go we know not where; To lie in cold obstruction and to rot; This sensible warm motion to become A kneaded clod; and the delighted spirit To bathe in fiery floods, or to reside In thrilling region of thick-ribbed ice; To be imprison'd in the viewless winds, And blown with restless violence round about The pendent world. . .

His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. Born in Portsmouth, England, Dickens left school to work in a factory after his father was thrown into debtors' prison.

476: Op-Ed - Predator Edition

Dec 13, 2017 46:43

Description:

Opening song downloaded in 2006 as podsafe music: David Acton’s “The Prodigal” DISCLAIMER This bonus episode of CraftLit likely belongs at the end of Herland, but since the inciting incidents didn’t occur for several years, I’m putting it here, but with a warning - language and subject matter are NOT what you will find in the other 475± episodes of CraftLit. This is NOT an episode to have a first-listen with your kids in the car. To that end, I am well aware that there will be parts of this episode that will anger you. If you’ve listened to CraftLit for awhile you’ll know that I often hold information or comments for the end—it’s the theater side of me, wanting to book-end these essays so that they are dramatically and structurally consistent. But I’d be an idiot if I didn’t know you would have responses while you listen. I encourage you to use the recording app on your phone and switch back and forth between listening and responding so you have your thoughts in order. Then, when you’re done, you have the choice to send me the complete file at Heather@CraftLit.com OR you can call our listener line at 1-206-350-1642 and speak your mind. And, finally, You might be expecting me to deal with this topic through the lens of classic literature. With one exception, that will not happen in this episode. This is personal. This is nothing more than my thoughts—a culmination of 31 years of my experiences and thoughts—on this topic. We have faced many characters in complicated relationships where we in the modern world have very different responses regarding issues of consent. Byronic Heroes are not unknown to us. However, you may wish to hunt down the post by David Wong at (of all places) Cracked.com called Consent: 7 reasons why guys don’t understand it. It’s both funny and upset-stomach-inducing—and written by a guy for whom I’d like to buy a drink if he’s ever in Eastern PA. 3:10 Before I begin, there is a transcription of this over at CraftLit.com/476. Included there are links out to everything I mention that is link-to-able. 3:51 Hello, The number of times I’ve been compelled to do something like this could be counted on a hand inside a very nicely knitted mitten, but Ehren Zigler started it, and comment threads I’ve been reading have pushed me to try—at least for we sane people—to end it. To begin at the beginning, my husband pointed out a month-or-so ago that every woman he knew had put a #MeToo hashtag on their feed. Sadly, none surprised him. However, he asked why I hadn’t. I was the only one he knew of who could have but didn’t. And I didn’t. 4:30 I mentioned–very briefly–my past a few years back on CraftLit and I left it there. For a long time it had defined part of me, but then I got married, then I had a son, then I was teaching HS the day we were evacuated from the tip of an island off the coast of North America when a plane tried to drop a building on us, then I had another son, then I became a podcaster, an author, a speaker—I outgrew simple definitions. There is nothing simple about the conversation that is swirling around us right now—and I say that as both a #MeToo and as a mother of young men. The mother of some rather justifiably nervous young men. 5:15 When I was teaching HS in NYC I learned something very important that I need to share with you: I knew nothing about being white. I mean, yes, if you’ve heard “Stupid Shit White People Say” you’ve probably laughed–just like me. Ha Ha. I get it. What I mean is I knew nothing about what being white looks like to anyone who isn’t. You might remember the spectacularly biting SNL clip of Eddie Murphy’s “White Like Me” complete with what happens in the white world when anyone of color leaves the room. It’s hilarious. And it’s not. One of the most revealing conversations I ever had was with a class of recidivist freshmen. These 20 kids were massively in the minority at our very-college-focused NYC Public School. This was not their first time in Freshman English. It might have been their third or fourth, to be honest. Trying to figure out how to get them to want to strengthen their skills was more difficult than any teaching job I’ve had before or since and I probably failed to help at least half of them. But they sure taught me. I was particularly lucky because my students had learned that they could trust me—at least it seemed to believe they could. I sure hoped they could. This was well into my time in NYC and it was also at the height of the people-getting-jumped-for-their-Air-Jordan’s scare and we’d been working our way through annotating a NYTimes article on the topic in preparation for them to practice writing formal letters, like they might have to write to a landlord someday, only we were using a letter to the editor of the paper as a practice run. As we annotated copies and separated fact from opinion (and noted where we’d need more facts to support our claims) one boy made a comment about how there was nothing wrong with jumping someone for their shoes—as long as that someone was white. As the only white person in the room at the time, I asked for clarification. Near as I can recall the conversation went something like this: Me: Wait, what? Student: Well, you know, Miss. I mean, it’s mad wrong for me to jump someone like… Tyrik here (laughter) because I know it’s not like he can just, you know, go out and buy new Jordans. (“awwwwww”s) Me: Okaaaayyy… Student: But…you know, Miss. If you need a new pair, you’ll get a new pair. Me: Wait. Are you telling me that I should be able to buy a new pair of Jordan’s because I’m white? (Laughter) Student: (clearly baffled by my response and the laughter) Um…yeah… Me: George, how much money do you think I make??? Student: (still baffled) I don’t know…like…white people money? Me: (laughing) That’s an income classification? Student: (backpedaling) You know, Miss? Right? Like, you make enough. You can, you know, buy…stuff you want. Me: George, I’m a teacher. We don’t get rich being teachers. We get promised decent health care, and retirement, in exchange for not getting rich—almost enough to pay rent and eat. I’m not rich. Seriously. These shoes I got at Payless. I went on to break down how much I brought home every two weeks and what my monthly expenses were. My disposable money at the end of the month was about $30. The rustling in the room got louder as we worked our way towards that fact—a fact that the students brought up again and again in class when people made assumptions or worked off of stereotypes. 9:20 As different as my life was from George’s view of All White Folks—his understanding of the differences of how white folks live from the people he grew up with in his neighborhood wasn’t that far off. Things I saw our students do that I—at first—thought were SO self-defeating, so working against their best interests — were, often as not, learned survival skills. We had a whole cross section of girls who got to school late every day. Same amount of late Every Day. Why? Their moms and dads both worked, often more than one job and frequently in overlapping shifts which meant one adult was still on the way home from a late shift on public transit early in the morning when the other was leaving for an early shift. But there’s a baby. Baby has to go to daycare. Affordable daycare starts at the same time as school. Solution? The oldest daughter is responsible and she’ll be able to make up the work she misses at her school. Have her take the baby to daycare then go to school. Someone else will pick the baby up so the oldest daughter can stay late and get help, library access, or just a quiet place to study. Win-win. But it took several years for me to learn that. All the kids knew how it worked. One girl was shocked I’d needed to ask her, because duh, of course that’s what was going on. Opening the door and coming into class late wasn’t anything she needed to apologize or make excuses for, because it was just so obvious. Except it wasn’t. To me. Just like I thought Damany’s audio essay couple of years ago about the shootings in Dallas wasn’t obvious. 11:18 Just like what Louis CK revealed in his public statement published in the NYT about the charges of sexual misconduct about him. H is thoughts weren’t obvious either. It’s not about race. It’s not about beauty. It’s not about sex. It’s not necessarily about gender. It is all about power. 11:49 And even people with power never feel like they are the one in power. There’s always someone richer, better, stronger, meaner, more ruthless, more threatening, better looking than they are. So if you try to have the conversation with them as though they’ve got more power than you they’ll just “what about THAT person” and blow off everything you say. John Oliver did a lovely piece on “WhatAboutIsm” - which is also known as the tu quoque logical fallacy. Back to Louis CK. 12:40 I don’t know if, in the maelstrom of sexual predator reveals you read or heard his whole statement, but you should know what he said. All of it. Because I think it should be the gold standard by which we judge responses to this issue. Allow me to give you a smidgen of context for why I believe that. 13:00 In a nutshell, Louis CK struggled on his way up as a standup comedian. A lot. He and Mark Maron have spoken about their enemyship and their friendship and how the difficulties they encountered paralleled each other but how they ultimately found success—albeit in relatively different areas. I guarantee you, if a female comedian heard me say that she would have snorted. Quadruple that snort if she’s a female comedian of color. Because…seriously. It’s just so obvious. Sidestepping that rabbit hole for a moment and going back to Louis CK—it’s important to know that Louis CK - like George Clooney and Samuel L Jackson have famously said – Louis CK didn’t have success handed to him on a silver platter when they were young. He ate his share of cup-o-noodles and did a fair bit of couch surfing is what I’m saying. So If an up-and-coming female comedian had said to him, “Geez, it’s been rough going…” he’d be likely to say—justifiably—“Oh My God, I KNOW. There was this one time when I…” not necessarily as a way of him purposefully dismiss her struggles, but very likely thinking that he’s speaking to an equal or—at least—to someone on her way to being a professional equal. How that convo might have been perceived by the woman he was speaking to would very likely have sounded very different. He learned—the hard way—about power disparities. 15:05 We can learn from him that power disparities are invisible to those in power UNLESS they are given a reason to stop, back up, think, ask questions, sit with it awhile, and then find the cojones to say “mea culpa” and own their error. And we—the rest of the public, the couch-sitting judge and jury to these people’s social falls—we have to learn to allow them to do that. We say that we want people to own it. We say we want people to say they’re sorry, but when they do we’re as likely to attack them for that as we are for them denying everything. And that’s too bad because we know everyone makes mistakes. But it’s very rare that we see people who are actually evil—Goebbels and Himmler and Pol Pot and King Leopold evil—stalk other people to try to ruin their lives. Even the guy who assaulted me wasn’t evil like that. He was a privileged jerk who thought he deserved everything—and that included females—because, my God woman, why WOULDN’T you want him, Right? He had money, he was smart (smart enough to get away with it more than once…until he broke his girlfriend’s collarbone) he (thought he was) good looking…I mean, duh. Anyone who accused him of something that unsavory must just be bitter…or a bitch…or frigid…or a feminist. Because, I mean, who are they going to believe? Right? 16:40 At this point, you need to go listen to Ehren Zigler’s ShakespeareSunday.libsyn.com episode from Nov 12, 2017 entitled: Who Will Believe You? When you’re done, come back and pick up here. 17:10 Welcome back! So what have we learned? Sadly, that not much has changed since 1604, or, more accurately, nothing much has changed since… forever. But that isn’t helpful. Because I’ve raised two wonderful boys, one of whom isn’t unnerved about going to college on his own or of a possible terrorist attack nearly as much as he is of putting a girl in a position where he thinks she wants him to kiss her only to find that he’d misread the situation and is now labeled a predator. And the way things are flying around now, I don’t know that he’s wrong to feel this way. 18:02 If we can’t tell the difference between and adult predator of girls and young women—a predator so well-known that a mall barred his entrance—and a man finally “getting it” and owning what he did wrong, if we can’t respect a man taking ownership of what he did wrong and vowing to try to do better (knowing full well that history has it’s eyes on him) then my son is right. He should be scared—or at least very very nervous. But that’s the wrong lesson we’re supposed to be learning. If theater, TV, and film have taught us anything, it’s that bad things happen when people don’t say what they should say. If real life has taught us anything, it’s that people can get punished for saying the right thing to the wrong person and vice versa. If literature has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t learn, grow, and become better happier people if we don’t listen to Atticus Finch: we need to walk a mile in the other person’s shoes. 16:48 I’ve been talking a lot about Louis CK’s statement, and before I read it to you, I do want to make it clear: I know that for years Louis CK denied all of these allegations. I’m also aware that in Hollywood he has a manager and an agent and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if, (a) they were male, and (b), if they advised all of their clients who found themselves in situations like this to deny everything. Why? Because it’s been a very, very, effective tactic. Let me read it to you now because you have to hear it—all of it—for this last bit to make sense. I want to address the stories told to The New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not. These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position. I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it. There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with. I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work. The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them… I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother. I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen. Thank you for reading. 19:25 When I was a kid, Atticus’ lessons seemed simple: I could usually figure out what I needed to, I could find the empathy in me that I needed to, just by imagining myself in someone elses’ position. That still works. Sometimes. But teaching in NYC taught me that imagination wasn’t enough. I had to actually get to know people who at a first—very superficial—glance were so different from me, only to find that our middle class upbringings, our relationships with our loving and supportive parents, our thoughts about love and life and career were all so similar as to be indistinguishable from one another. Until you factored in chances for success. One of my bosses in Hollywood told me a story once. He had an African American best friend in college, he’s Jewish. He laughingly told me how they used to have “woe is me” competitions, racking up all the ways people’s prejudices and unfair treatment had frustrated them. I was young and naïve and I asked who won. He stopped laughing and said, “we ended the competition when my friend pointed out that if the two of us were walking down the street, people might guess I was Jewish…but they knew he was Black.” In competitions like that, no one wins. Not even the people in power. 21:00 One more illustration In 2016 there was an article I read that profiled various voters. One was a tentative Trump supporter in the upper midwest. I’ll call him Frank, for lack of a better memory. He wasn’t comfortable with much about Trump personally, but it was better than what he’d personally experienced from the left. He’d served in a war, he’d come back, he’d gotten a job, he’d raised a family, he paid his taxes, he started his own business. It wasn’t easy, but he worked his tuchus off and got his kids into college—like you do—and then one of his daughters came home from college with a boyfriend. At his own Thanksgiving table, this embodiment of the American dream, Frank, was served a plateful of stereotypes from a 20 year old kid—you must be a bigot, classist, uneducated, small-minded, evangelical, gay-bashing, woman-hating, immigrant-fearing, gun-loving, war-mongering idiot. Frank was, as would many of us be, speechless. And enraged. Here he’d done what he was supposed to do. He started a business. He supported his family. He paid his taxes. He loved his daughters and wanted them to be happy, with bright futures—that’s why did did all the things he did. Not because it was fun. Not because he was following his bliss. Because It Is What You Do when you love your family. JUST like my student’s parents worked many jobs and paid plenty in taxes to provide a home and futures for their families. But Frank didn’t have anyone to yell at—he couldn’t yell at his daughter’s boyfriend—no matter how much the twerp deserved it. (I guess no one taught him about the word assume…) because a gentleman doesn’t do something like that. He didn’t have a place to go where he could protest this unfair treatment. He didn’t have anyone to protest against. And yes, there’s no question, Frank didn’t see all of the benefits that being white and male afforded him. Again, to those with less power, his power is very obvious. To him, all he saw was how much work he put into making a good life for his family and his kids. So Frank was unhappy. But he didn’t much like colleges. And he really didn’t much like the Left. And it’s kind of hard to blame him. 26:45 But I can’t help but wish that in moments like that, the Franks of the world could find a way to step back and calmly ask, “Wait, but why? Why do you assume that about me?” And then listen. Because if Frank listened to the Why, there’s a good chance that the more he heard and the more specific his questions got, the more he would expose the flaws in the stereotypes—and the more likely the Twerp would learn something he hasn’t learned at home—respecting your elders has nothing to do with deferring to them. It’s all about listening to them. Everyone does the best they can do with what they’ve got. No one sets out to be a failure or hateful—but often what looks like hate, is really just fear. And we are—as Madeline L’Engle and Ray Bradbury and a zillion other authors have noted—are always afraid of the unknown. And that’s where our current situation gets dangerous. Because if we can’t hear the difference between Louis CK’s —excuse the term—manning up to explain his actions and own his mistakes —NOT Yeah, I’m remorseful BECAUSE I GOT CAUGHT - which was more or less his first reaction — But if we can’t hear a cogent and serious reflection on how these things can happen and why men simply don’t see it, then we also won’t see the danger inherent in someone who blames the victim (or shockingly blames religious bias) and denies any responsibility for their actions. And that’s the way we perpetuate all of this. 28:35 To be crystal clear: I am not talking about the more clear-cut violent crimes. I am however, pointing out that as long as we talk about sexual harassment and rape and serial pedophilia as though they’re all sex crimes, the longer we’ll be missing the point and not solving the problem - and we’ll have perpetuated a false equivalency. The assault I suffered was a very different kind of crime from the assault survived by one of the young women in a support group I eventually attended. She was attacked getting out of her car, with her laundry basket, in sweats, no makeup, hair piled on her head. She was threatened at knife-point. She was terrorized. Her case seems like a simple and clear-cut criminal assault. She still had people—often official-type people and not just men—ask her if she actually saw the knife. Or imply that she was asking for it—because she was blonde, tan, and pretty. I, of course, have never found sweats and no makeup that appealing, but hey, what do I know? I’m not a rapist. 29:52 The betrayal that she and I felt, at being assaulted, at having our body touched by someone to whom we did not give permission, was the same. The betrayal we experienced at having people who should have believed us who should have been on our side, who should have helped, or should have at the very least, have tried to help us make sure that the perpetrator never hurt anyone like that again—the betrayal we experienced at having people who should have believed us walk away or turn their backs—was the same. The crime itself was different. Which is kind of the point. The chances of the guy who assaulted her being surprised by being accused of rape is pretty slim. You go out of your way to stalk someone, beat them, hold a knife to their throat, tear their clothes, and force them to have sex with you—I think you probably know that’s called rape. I’m talking about the squishier territory. The “I didn’t know” vs the “yeah, well you should’ve known” moments. The places I’ve been talking about where purpose and perception are blurred and power, career, livelihood, and reputation are the elephants in the corners of the room, standing there all but invisible to the person with the power. We have to learn to hear the choked and sometimes heartbroken “I didn’t know” for what it is: the sudden exposure of a power disparity that was always there but largely invisible and a cultural disparity that I’ve never seen explained as well as was done this last week by David Wong. 31:48 There is an important lesson, I believe, in watching someone accused of something like this, especially a public figure—with or without proof provided—say, “Oh my God, I don’t remember this, but for God’s sake, begin an ethics investigation, because we can’t just sweep these things under the rug.” There have to be standards. There are norms of behavior we need to respect. Because that kind of behavior—owning your mistake, allowing justice to run its course (with the belief that justice will, in fact, be just)—that is what we teach our children. That is what we tell them the world is like. So we have to act like it, too. Because the kids are watching us. There’s also an important warning in watching someone accused of something like this deny it ever happened, deny video footage, deny responsibility, or, most heinously, blame the victim—because as Louis CK and James Comey both demonstrated this year—the person in power does not think they have an unfair advantage. The person with less power, however, knows it. 33:10 It’s true in economics, it’s true in geopolitical conflict, it’s true throughout history, and it’s true when it comes to interpersonal relationships—those on the lower side of the power scale know a lot more about the higher end than the higher end knows about them. That’s why America strides around the planet like a big teenage bully, not caring—not needing to care—about how it’s perceived. Since WWII America’s had the power. I hope, that when the world shifts away from that, we can lose that bravado and learn how to deal with not being on top gracefully. I might be delusional. But I have to be hopeful because of my sons. 33:54 I don’t know that I can see a way through to a happy ending to the current spate of accusations. I’m not an apologist for the men being accused. I do think there’s a scale of egregiousness, and legality. However. I had a boss who once joked about me wearing a French Maid’s uniform at work. I laughed. I thought it was the stupidest thing I’d ever heard. He laughed too, and we had a really spectacular working relationship for nearly three years. Did he ever touch me? Not once. Would he be in serious trouble nowadays for making the French Maid joke. I’m afraid he would be. Even in 1989 he might have been if I’d taken him seriously. But I listened. And I watched him. And I heard that it wasn’t a threat. Or a requirement. It wasn’t even a legitimate or realistic request. It was a joke. No bathrobes were involved. No hotel room meetings—not that there couldn’t have been. This was Hollywood. But I’ve been lucky to work for and with honorable men my whole life. Karmic payback for having crossed paths with a sociopath in college, perhaps. I like to think that I took what happened to me and learned some valuable lessons from it. Like trusting myself to know when it’s time to go without worrying about being told I was spoiling everyone’s fun, trusting my gut to know that what I was walking into was not a safe situation—without worrying that I’d be told I was being hysterical, and by not worrying about being called a bitch if I weeded out backstabbers and betrayers from my life. 35:35 One of the saddest things I’ve heard this year was James Comey’s testimony when he talked about begging the Attorney General to stay in the room—to not leave him alone with the president—because he knew power disparity there was real and he didn’t want to be alone without witnesses in case the President said something that would be either Illegal or putting pressure on him in a way that could lead to things that were illegal. The kind of betrayal James Comey experienced—watching the Attorney General walk out of that room—is exactly the kind of betrayal women have felt when left alone with someone they know is unsafe. It is the closing of the door that is the most terrifying. At that point there is almost nothing you can do to win. Society will label you with one negative no matter which way you come out of that room. You can either be a frigid bitch or you can be a whore. What you can’t be is deaf. 36:45 You can’t be deaf to the same kinds of stories coming from other people in similar situations—both women and men. Atticus would be disappointed. And slut shaming is done by women at least as often as men. Ask my dorm roommates. They got to watch it up close. But we—especially we—women have to be the first one on the scene pointing out that nothing we’ve heard yet—Not One Incident—has been about one person being attracted to someone who Just Wasn’t That Into Him. None of this has been about sexual attraction or chemistry or a date gone bad. It’s been about powerful people knowingly or unknowingly using sex as a threat. The threat is “I get to do what I want to do because I’m the one who controls—or at the very least, can affect—your future.” Some threats like that are completely unknowingly wielded. Because those in power know less about how that power is perceived than the people without the power. There are the unknowing wielders, and then there are the others. But how would a guy know which camp he’s in—really? He’s not a rapist in an alley with a knife. We know those guys are predators. We know they’re the bad guys. These guys are wearing suits! When in a position of power there are few people brave enough to be Abraham Lincoln and actively search for smart people who disagree with them to surround themselves with. Instead, powerful people tend to gravitate to those who agree—or seem to agree—with them until the world they live in shows them in no uncertain terms every hour of every day that everyone wants to do what they want them to do. So if everyone wants what you want them to do, how could kissing or touching this woman who knows you—how could that be any sort of violation? Because obviously, she wanted it. How could she not? 30:31 CraftLit listeners are some of the most amazing people I’ve met in my entire life…. People who care about words meaning what they mean. When we look at the language and rhetoric being used in all of these arguments, debates, and statements, help the people around you to take a step back and look at the language being used. We can tell so much—and in situations like this, that language is the only in-road we have to following Atticus’ advice. Because we probably can’t imagine what it’s like to be Harvey Weinstein. We might not want to even if we could. But is it easy to understand how an overweight, schlubby guy who grew up overweight and schlubby, might see getting anything he wants is payback for years of humiliation and being ignored by women? Looking at the way he defends himself, yeah. I can imagine that that is exactly what’s going through his head. Does it make what he did any less reprehensible? Heck no. The crime is the crime is the crime. A rose by any other name… It just means that solving the problem—helping him come to terms with what the problem is in the first place, is a different conversation. Violence, whether psychological or physical, that involves sex or sexuality, is never about sex or sexuality. It’s about power. And the sooner we can be honest with each other about these kinds of crimes and how we react to them—because our reactions are just as complicated, I would wager, as the reactions of the guys who’ve been outed—the sooner we can heal and move forward. And maybe—if we’re lucky—not see this happen any more. A girl can dream. But mostly, I hope that my friends and colleagues who are raising daughters are raising girls to be able to tell the difference between an honorable young man who does not have their best interests at heart. For the sake of my wonderful, beautiful sons, I hope that, as much as we’ve worked to make them kind, honorable, happy, good people, the same is being done by the fathers and mothers who are raising their daughters. 41:48 Because honorable people, embodied for my entire conscious life by my mother, my father, and Atticus Finch, are people who may be unaware that they’ve done something wrong, but when it’s brought to their attention respond by working to understand what went wrong and correct that wrong in whatever way they can. Dishonorable people are ones who may be unaware they’ve done something wrong, and when it’s brought to their attention—simply don’t care. I think we’ve seen several examples of both types of responses in the past year. And just like me with my students in New York, I didn’t know what I didn’t know about being white—until I had a chance to listen. Until I had someone brave enough to talk to me, honestly, and without anger. I got to be Frank, in a safe place where I was able to ask questions and—because I was safe, and not being attacked—able to hear the answers I was able to hear and understand the “what I should have knowns…because it’s just so obvious.” When it still wasn’t obvious. To me. Back then. Things I couldn’t have seen without help because you just don’t see the same view as everyone else when you’re the one on top. Literature is there to show us how to grow, how to act, and often as not how NOT to act and grow. That is one of the reasons why education, specifically in the humanities, is so vital. These are the reasons I’ve been hosting CraftLit for coming up on 12 years. I promise, on Thursday, December 14th, I’ll be back to sharing inside jokes with you and Dickens and the holiday spirit. But today I thank you for listening. And I hope you know that I’ve given you our call-in number for a reason. I’ve never shied away from reading emails or playing audio from you when you’ve disagreed with me and I won’t do it now. I also know from our long sojourn together that unlike the rest of the internet, CraftLit listeners respond to each other with kindness and compassion—you are my Finch-Family Community. You are the ones who prove to me, over and over again, that the world can be a good and safe and happy place. I know that once again, I’ll point to our online forums as The Only Place on the Internet Where People Still Have Manners When Discussing Difficult Things. Because you always listen. And think. And research. And share. And speak—always with compassion and thought and care. I’ve tried to do the same for you today. I hope I have. I like to believe that classic fiction and the people who love it can help us avoid a world run by IT or The Commanders in The Handmaid’s Tale or the assassins in the fourth part of Female Man (Joanna Russ)*. I believe—and I will continue to believe—that Humanity can do better than that. I have to believe that. Because like you, I love my children. And I want them, and yours, to have safe and happy lives. (This is the printing I read in school. No idea if it’s better or worse than others. It’s just the one I know) The FUN side of CraftLit returns on December 14, 2017 with the First Day of CraftLit?stories to light the holidays. < --listen or download-->

468 - Chapters 106-107 - The Count of Monte Cristo

Sep 16, 2017 01:16:36

Description:

Book Talk (8:51) Links Ch 106 [Asmodeus] [Le Sage] 107 [Racine] [Guilbert de Pixerecourt]and the [Wiki] | Mapcon 2017 | I spent last weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference and had the pleasure of meeting a hotel full of wonderful podcasters. Recording from home can be isolating at times, so it feels great to go out into the wild and meet up with fellow casters to talk about improving our shows and the impact we have on listeners.

But in vain did he rack his imagination; fertile as it was, he could not devise any plan for reaching the island without companionship. Dantes was tossed about on these doubts and wishes, when the patron, who had great confidence in him, and was very desirous of retaining him in his service, took him by the arm one evening and led him to a tavern on the Via del' Oglio, where the leading smugglers of Leghorn used to congregate and discuss affairs connected with their trade. Already Dantes had visited this maritime Bourse two or three times, and seeing all these hardy free-traders, who supplied the whole coast for nearly two hundred leagues in extent, he had asked himself what power might not that man attain who should give the impulse of his will to all these contrary and diverging minds. This time it was a great matter that was under discussion, connected with a vessel laden with Turkey carpets, stuffs of the Levant, and cashmeres. It was necessary to find some neutral ground on which an exchange could be made, and then to try and land these goods on the coast of France. If the venture was successful the profit would be enormous, there would be a gain of fifty or sixty piastres each for the crew. Let's Communicate!

Permethrin Only for clothing - NOT TO BE PUT ON SKIN 20%Picaridin or a big ol tank of Picaridin Bulk instructions for a less wasteful Picaridin spray use: Question: Is it possible to buy a refill for the spray bottle? I do not want to throw the pump in the trash for each bottle I order. Great product Answer: If your going to use multiple bottles of permethrine...this is what i did. I bought a bottle of permethrine 36.8%, sometimes called "permethrine SFR". Then I got a one gallon lawn and garden sprayer. The are about $10 dollars . The just dilute the permethrine to the .5% strength like the sawyer's is. That is half of one percent. Dilute as follows. 1 gallon of water gets 2 ounces of 36.8% permethrine to give you .5% . Sooo much cheaper this way. And your right why buy and throw out all those plastic bottles, Permethrine SFR is available on Amazon. The bottle have a ounce measuring thing built in. Make gallons of the stuff for so little money...Or of course you could buy the 10% permethrine and just dilute that to .5% to make a little less. Or dilute the SFR to 1%...that lasts longer on clothes. Just use 4 ounces of SFR in one gallon (my preference) I treat everything I wear from the waist down, socks and shoes, pants shorts. My wife's clothes too.

Best Roast Potatoes EVER Kiva.org and the Give a Kiva Card for Christmas page And check out the growing list of fun things to get from the CraftLit gift shop (or the PodShop): CraftLit Bag by CraftLit It's the last week of my computer's early death (it's in the shop. If you talk nerd like me: Turns out the Solid State hard drive started to die, took out the fusion drive with it and then, in an epic domino maneuver, took out my graphics card. That's why by Thursday the only way I could manipulate the computer (like, to turn it off) was to use the assistive keystrokes for the blind. THAT was a first. The Genius Bar was stunned to respectful silence. So. This is the last week I'm tormenting Justin, my seriously-fun-to-work-with editor at Audio Editing Solutions for taking blobs of audio and make them make sense. That Justin. WhattaMensch!

Epic computer meltdown right after recording. I'm actually typing these notes on my phone. No idea when I'll have a working machine again (or at least a machine I can trust to keep working).

And on that note, I go back to the tech support call that's had me on hold...today.

Mene, Mene, Tekel, U'Pharsin Closeup of The Writing: By Rembrandt - www.nationalgallery.org.uk : Home : Info, Public Domain Translation Variations French version: 6:54-7:34 À force de se dire à lui-même, à propos de ses ennemis, que le calme était la mort, et qu'à celui qui veut punir cruellement il faut d'autres moyens que la mort, il tomba dans l'immobilité morne des idées de suicide; malheur à celui qui, sur la pente du malheur, s'arrête à ces sombres idées! C'est une de ces mers mortes qui s'étendent comme l'azur des flots purs, mais dans lesquelles le nageur sent de plus en plus s'engluer ses pieds dans une vase bitumineuse qui l'attire à elle, l'aspire, l'engloutit. Une fois pris ainsi, si le secours divin ne vient point à son aide, tout est fini, et chaque effort qu'il tente l'enfonce plus avant dans la mort. Public Domain version: By dint of constantly dwelling on the idea that tranquillity was death, and if punishment were the end in view other tortures than death must be invented, he began to reflect on suicide. Unhappy he, who, on the brink of misfortune, broods over ideas like these! Before him is a dead sea that stretches in azure calm before the eye; but he who unwarily ventures within its embrace finds himself struggling with a monster that would drag him down to perdition. Once thus ensnared, unless the protecting hand of God snatch him thence, all is over, and his struggles but tend to hasten his destruction. This state of mental anguish is, however, less terrible than the sufferings that precede or the punishment that possibly will follow. There is a sort of consolation at the contemplation of the yawning abyss, at the bottom of which lie darkness and obscurity. Robin Buss' translation (1996, 2003): …eventually he fell into the melancholy quietude of thoughts of suicide. Woe to the man who, sliding into misfortune, is drawn by such dark thoughts! This is one of those dead seas that seem to offer the inviting blue of pure waters, but where the swimmer’s feet are sucked into a bituminous mire which draws him, drags him down and swallows him up. Once caught, he is lost if God does not come to his aid, and every effort that he makes pulls him nearer to death. - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas ROBIN BUSS • Bituminous Bitumen - a black viscous mixture of hydrocarbons obtained naturally or as a residue from petroleum distillation.

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens—Stave the Fourth, Stave the Fifth Music used in this Audiobook with Benefits compiled from "Carol of the Bells" from Community Audio Internet Archive Holiday Brass Ensemble, Nemesis, 12 Days of Christmas, and The First Noel all from the YouTube Music Library Subscribe at iTunes--> New? Find out how to get all the audiobooks-with-benefits--> Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop (from 2010, but still excellent recipe links!) November 12th—The Cratchette pattern November 15th—Staves 1–2 November 17th—Stave 3 November 19th—Staves 4-5 November 23rd—Hot Buttered Goodness   From the text: ...and Bob served it out with beaming looks, while the chestnuts on the fire sputtered and crackled noisily. Then Bob proposed: "A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!" Which all the family re-echoed. "God bless us every one!" said Tiny Tim, the last of all. In the 2010 holiday season a group of us hosted a Dickens of a Christmas blog hop: April of 21st Century Housewife Ken of Ken Albala's Food Rant and many, many books about food which you should check out Sarah of Toranto Tasting Notes blog, print journalist, food blogger and author of an upcoming book about the home canning revolution Margo of Hat Shadows, a professional milliner for film, theater, opera and ballet. She teaches hatmaking courses so check out her blog! Diana of A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa Annette of Sustainable Eats and Me! There are recipes for the traditional foods Dickens wrote of in A Christmas Carol, or recipes that would have been found in Victorian England around the holidays. There were giveaways (sorry, finished), themed knitting patterns and quite possibly hats! There may have been smoking bishop and suet cooked in organs. And there was certainly much making of merry. We hope you enjoy this as much as we know we did! And we hope that you have a DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS!

BONUS--Tis the Season!

Dec 19, 2013

Description:

I added some audio to the Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop a couple of years ago. Those general podcasts are linked to below via their shownotes. There are video versions (where you can see the artwork from the original Dickens) and audio-only versions as well on those pages. If you've never heard the original story it's not long and well worth a listen. Much of it is familiar from the movies and plays, but the bits that don't often get done are lovely, too. Just more bookish than theatrical. Enjoy--and have a Very Very Merry Christmas! —Staves 1-2—A Christmas Carol —Stave 3—A Christmas Carol —Staves 4-5—A Christmas Carol

BOO! Masque of the Red Death

Oct 31, 2013 37:13

Description:

BONUS EPISODE-"Masque of the Red Death", because... tis the season! And because Jon Scholes ROCKS! So, to celebrate, I thought I should give you easy links to some other seasonal audio: Link to "Cask of Amontillado" episode Link to "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" episodes Link to Dracula episodes on CraftLit, and Dracula episodes on Just-the-Books The first story I did for Chilling Tales for Dark Nights, "Death in a Dark Mirror" And while I can't knit right now, if you can or want to, you should check out Meg's latest Grounded sock—Jenn's Subtle Majicks. UPDATE: I had this all set to go out automatically, but I know word has been spreading on the interwebs and my radio silence while taking an hour nap this morning incited panic on Facebook. The upshot: I'm fine. I'm typing slowly with one hand b/c my left arm is useless, probably for two or three more days. After getting the flu and then pneumonia last winter, I got flu and pneumonia shots Tuesday morning... in the same arm. This is evidently not something my body liked and it has rebelled. Ungodly pain hits when I move my left arm. But I've currently got it pinned to me, Napoleon-like, and good doctor drugs let me get some rest. So. The other epic fail was getting the Grounded audiobook up this week. Computers conspired as did health, so... next week! Enjoy the podcast, I'll be fine, and things will return to normal (giggle::snort) next week. Music by David Beard, “Restless Spirits”

Polonaise Pharisee update Ulster Coat Susan said about St Augustine: This evening as I was going to a class at Flagler College I was listening to the episode where St Augustine is first mentioned. The College is in the old Hotel Ponce de Leon, built by industrialist Henry Flagler in the 1880's. It was designed by Carrere and Hastings, who also built the NYC Public Library. The college is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the building this year. For a time it was the nicest hotel in the world, with many original Tiffany windows (that are still there), beautiful architecture and even electricity with wiring put in by Edison. It was The Place to go in winter. It's a pretty amazing building. There is a student run tour twice a day, and it's very popular. It was definitely for the upper classes only. Flagler built another hotel across the street, but it was not quite as nice although It did have a casino and the world's largest indoor swimming pool. The Hotel is built on land my ancestors farmed in the 18th century. Later, one of my great great grandfathers was a hunting and fishing guide for Henry Flagler and his guests. Hmm, I probably should have read this book a while back, huh? (Heather's Note: I love these brushes with greatness we get! More proof y'all are the best!) Later, Flagler moved further south, building the railroad that ended in Key West. After he died he was buried in the mausoleum of a church he built here, right near the hotel. In fact, I parked in front of it tonight! His first wife, as well as his daughter and granchild are buried there. I will attach a couple of pictures, from postcards, that you will find interesting. (I have these cards in my postcard stash. I'm a Postcrosser,) They are fairly self-explanatory. The modern photo shows the dome of the church Henry Flagler is buried in. It's Memorial Presbyterian, although my friend insists on calling it the Presbyterian Mosque. It's pretty elaborate. The hotel became a college in the 1968. The college is small, but highly rated. (Also, on another note, coquina is pronounced Ko-keen-a, not Ko-queen-a. It's a Spanish word, so a lot of people make that mistake. I can't remember which episode this came up in.

Canterville Ghost Sneak Peek

Description:

It occured to me that you haven't a clue what beauty awaits you in "The Canterville Ghost"! This was subscriber-only audio which now lives in the Shoppe. It's such a hidden gem of Oscar Wilde's I started to feel bad that more of you didn't know how fantastic is is. So. Here! This is most of the first bit. There are three parts which make up the whole book. If you want it, you can get it here. The Age of Innocence starts June 28, 2013. In my effort to be more efficient, I've also created two email lists: one for folks who are new to this whole CraftLit/Just-the-Books thing and would like more information one for folks who have been around for awhile but would like to be informed of any newsy bits (travel, new books, surveys for next books) when and if there are newsy bits Hope that's good and useful for y'all! See you in two weeks!

(We'll have more interesting questions soon--this was a big BIG podcast to get out. My brain will be back shortly) I will randomly select a name from this episode's responders and whoever I choose will get their very own WWMDfK? bracelet. And, NEW! We have a survey so you can tell me what you REALLY want! And we have a new mailing list which will allow me to get announcements out to you (like when I—SURPRISE—find out I'll be at MDSW and stuff like that).Type your email below and hit "enter." I will never, ever give or sell your email information to anyone. * * * SFF Audio—I've hit the big time! Listen to The New Mother here and SFF with me here. And then go take a look at Tara Swiger's book Market Yourself. Love! Her! * * * Cheddar, the CraftLit Critter (pattern)!

The good people at Cooperative Press have found a local printer who can bring you our new book still printed in the USA! Mwah! Have I told you how much I love indie publishers? And speaking of Cooperative Press! Two new goodies for you! First, the CP Sock & Mitt Club. Second, the CP Mag! Both of which yours truly will be working on! Yay! What is CP saying about the Magazine? Let me share what CP says: Our intentions are as follows: as with all things CP, we compensate our contributors fairly, work with indie designers and dyers, and generally keep great content coming at you; we will be publishing 3x per year (though we’re doing a special “issue zero” in time for TNNA, the big pro fiber arts tradeshow in June) via our own app. This app will eventually also offer other Cooperative Press content, too. Ebooks, special issues, etc.; by popular demand and in response to some early feedback, we’ll do a PDF version of the magazine, which will be available via our website and Ravelry. It won’t have the video/audio/interactive functionality of the main version, but for readers who aren’t interested in reading via app, it’ll offer access to most of the content; each year, we’ll collect the magazine content into a book book -- think the way Food&Wine or Martha Stewart republishes their "best-of" each year. Hopefully having multiple access points for the content will make everyone happy. And by having several digital options, it makes it possible to buy it from anywhere (even Australia and the UK!), because as we’ve learned selling books, not everyone feels like paying the (frankly absurd) postage rates these days. It makes me ill to have to charge half again the cost of a print book just to ship it to Europe, and from a purely capitalistic perspective, I’d rather you put that $12 towards another one of our ebooks! :) And, more happiness—the husband gets more good press for his book, too! Yay books! Yay literate people! * * * And my new pattern (that I'm so proud of!): Hunger Games-inspired Life and Death socks—designed for those of us who tend to give their socks a beating (more details on knitting blog). * * * Ehren, I think you'll agree, rocks the Gulliver text. grab the code And, of course, I'm racking up moments of the usual start-of-book zeitgeist.

And by having several digital options, it makes it possible to buy it from anywhere (even Australia and the UK!), because as we’ve learned selling books, not everyone feels like paying the (frankly absurd) postage rates these days. It makes me ill to have to charge half again the cost of a print book just to ship it to Europe, and from a purely capitalistic perspective, I’d rather you put that $12 towards another one of our ebooks! :) And, more happiness—the husband gets more good press for his book, too! Yay books! Yay literate people! * * * And my new pattern (that I'm so proud of!): Hunger Games-inspired Life and Death socks—designed for those of us who tend to give their socks a beating. (more details on knitting blog) Let me know what you thought of the movie by tweeting a response using this hashtag (#HungerGamesMovie): Question: What did you think of the Hunger Games movie"? (Thank you @ReneeRico, for the idea—and ditto on selecting a name for a bracelet!) * * * Audible's Moveable Feast with the excellent reader, Zora Neale Hurston's lovely Their Eyes Were Watching God. Soon Ehren and I'll have Gulliver ready for you. I'm racking up moments of the usual start-of-book zeitgeist. (Have you seen the advertisement yet? Thank you, Jill!)

227: Chapter 5 - Dracula

Oct 22, 2011 01:13:14

Description:

Chapter 5 of Dracula Though Sanguine Gryphon yarn is gorgeous and the people who love it are too! (But Renfield is sanguine as well... more on that soon...) Rhinebeck=blast. And blast=exhaustion, but it was all good. Blog post here so I don't bore you. Newsy bits: Heidi says: I know your a big fan of The Phantom Tollbooth so I wanted to tell you about a new documentary project and the Kickstarter campaign to help fund it. I'm making special character plush dolls for campaign backers. Do you KNIT? Could you help a penguin out? NZ has worldwide call for penguin sweaters post oil spill! (Not a joke) From: lahlahland I made this mini-me: Ann Shaffer came across this link to a page about a Canadian artist’s series of paintings called ”Exit, Pursued By A Bear” —how perfect is that? Issue 36 of The Knitter--nice review of Defarge on p 63 Use Zinio for magazines! Zowee! New Thing for you: Post what you've done! Lets make a list of the CraftLit Family's brilliance! And on that brilliant note: MORE PATTERN SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITIES! Checkout the Pattern Submission Page!!! Now we've got Defarge Vol 2 coming up as well as (drumroll) Defarge Does Chaucer and Defarge Does Shakespeare!   Karen's Patti Scarf on the iPhone this week, on here next.   Judge John Hodgeman explains the importance of the Fourth Wall (or not). Twitter/donations/scary... Donate 5$ or more and get your very own WWMDfK? bracelet! Margaret Rubiano of the Compendium Monstrum on Sparkly Vampires: I couldn't find an actual translation of Obour in the source material, but there was a note stating that its origins are Turkish, while the Slavonic name is Upior, and that in Dalmatia they are known as Wrikodlaki. (Sorry, no idea how to pronounce that one) On the plus side, they do appear to be easy enough to deal with-all you have to do is force the obour into a bottle using an Eikon, stopper it up, affix the Eikon to the bottle, and then chuck the whole enchilada into a fire.  Karen Wessel Just remembered what I've been meaning to mention - not sure if you don't know already but - the "Leiterwagen" mentioned in Dracula? the literal translation is Ladder (=Leiter) cart/wagon (=wagen). So called because the sides of it look like ladders. And if smaller stuff needed to be transported they had canvas to put inside and if dung needed to be transported they had boards/planks to take the place of the ladders on the side...

Gwen Steege's new book—you can join “The Knitter’s Life List” on Ravelry or the Facebook page, and of course Storey’s website has a page for it   The husband’s new novel and his lovely review from Kathleen: Andrew Ordover's novel is an entertaining introduction to a fresh new detective. Jordan Greenblatt, a Long Island transplant to Atlanta, has a smart and funny Southern wife, a group of jazz musicians for whom he plays bass, and, oh yeah, a one-man PI firm specializing in routine investigations: philanderers, insurance cheats, and other run-of-the mill cases. He also has some personal baggage that will soon be unpacked. Although he enjoys his self-described "slacker lifestyle," he is a bit bored and when a New York businessman asks him to investigate the three-year old hit and run death of his daughter, a woman whom Jordan knew as a teenager, he takes the case. Jordan's main gift as an investigator seems to be his impulsivity, and with his initial lack of either foresight or self-defense skills he manages to ruffle a lot of local feathers in what eventually becomes a very personal quest for justice. Ordover's gifts as a writer include a terrific ear for dialog, excellent pacing, and a sense of humor that is neither cynical nor snarky. He's given us an intriguing supporting cast as well, and I like his taste in classic jazz. After reading the last page I was delighted to see a teaser for a second book in the series. Although fans of feline detectives may be disappointed, I was charmed that the only four-legged cat in the book is Jordan and Susannah's pet cat, Eliot, who has a walk-on part in one scene and who appears to have absolutely no super-spidey-powers of detection.   Our GORGEOUS incentive for September/October 2011 from Marceli Botticelli's Tea Times Creations!

(The people of Dublin say he was a bloodsucker before writing about a bloodsucker.) Also, Stoker spent his summers around Killarney as a small boy. If one were to go on the Ghost Tour of Killarney, she would hear of the story of a man who lived in the ruins of Muckross Abbey. The man would be a part of living society during the day, but at night, he would retire to the ruins. The towns people would hear horrible shrieks and tortuous sounds from the Abbey that would last until almost dawn. When the sun was close to rising, the man would lie down in an empty coffin and sleep for a few hours. Lore has it that Stoker heard the stories about the man when he visited Killarney. Also, the Gaelic word drochfhuil (pronounced drak-ul) means “bad blood.” I have no idea how much of these stories are true, but the lore around Stoker really adds to the tale of Dracula.

218: secs v–vii, Hartright's narrative, con't.

Jul 31, 2011 01:58:34

Description:

Today The Woman in White, Walter Hartright's narrative, the story continued, sections v–vii. This week, I don't sleep.But then, neither did Penny. Does misery love company? Yes. Yes it does. Too tired to be bummed about missing Sock Summit. Sleepless at home is better than sleepless in an hotel. ish. The new shop is up and growing, new sock heel books are in the Rav store (if you find errors or issues, please email. If you purchase via Ravelry, then I can zap you an update as soon as it's posted). September 10th event is growing. More as I know it. I am nearly done with my handspun in-the-round-all-the-way-up-cuff-steeked-sweater, have started a baby surprise jacket for my little niece (who I will see this coming weekend!), have cast-on for the final bit of the Around the World book series (a sweater), found a nifty little paper doll pattern from a ZenTangle page, Moleskine Do Not Disturb signs (you have to sign up) and a Moleskine App(!), a link to Switch by Chip and Dan Heath, and a new affiliate program (we'll be retroactively moving the site over to them).   Making sense of our chapters: Italian Secret Societies, Pits and Stalls in Opera Houses—see the rim around the Stall seats (in the US we call them Orchestra seats). I think that must have been what Pesca climbed up on so he could see. Fosco would have been in a box.

Today, the Third Epoch (Walter's narrative), sections v-vii of the Woman in White. Good to be back and start to feel "normal" ish. New and old friends surround me, as does humidity, heat, mosquitoes, and lightening bugs. Also lemonade and whiskey. What's not to love? Looking for a good pattern for a knitted A-line skirt. Anyone? Anyone? I'm sure you know the new Knitty is out, but did you know that the Double Heelix sock is there? It's soooooo kewl! Madame Defarge appears on blogs and in Ravelry queues! A good sign! Some newsy ideas: make your own laundry soap (save some ducats) and make your own wool dryer balls (there are some lovely argyle ones on Etsy). Why, you ask, would you want a dryer ball? To stop static cling and dry your clothes faster, thus cutting down on expensive dryer time and eliminating the need for dryer sheets!

212: A Whole New World

Jun 21, 2011 01:30:23

Description:

Still unpacking, but... If you’re a teacher, ChopBard has a new book out for you (see incentive below). Really, seriously, the man’s a goldmine. If you're a spinner, check out Cotton Spinning with the Takli, a DVD by Joan Ruane. She is a member of my old guild in Tucson and a wonderful teacher. Everyone loves her because she's incredibly loveable. I've not seen her DVD myself--I spent my time watching her in person--but the review in Spring 2011's Spin-Off is glowing. The Quayside sock book I designed for (Knitting Socks from Around the World) is coming out July 1, 2011. I'm now working on a sweater for the same series... we'll see if this can be pulled off. It's going to be a doozy. In moving news (um, physically moving, not necessarily emotionally moving), If you’re in the Northern Virginia area, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m going to need babysitters and the 411 on local yarn stores etc. Already found (and love) Uniquities in Vienna, VA. LOVE that place! Am learning how to live on no income—or more accurately—to seriously live on seriously one income. I’m also loving Farmer’s Markets and local strawberries. And the color green. It's green here. If you want to see pics and stories of what happened (or didn't) on our trip, you can click on the "Road Trip" link in the sidebar of the shownotes. And that Punk bar I mention? That's the Triple Rock Social Club. Must go if you're in Minneapolis/St Paul. Ask if the knitters are there (ha!). Don't forget, there are a few seats left for the Road to Rhinebeck. As fun as the relocation road trip was, Rhinebeck will be even more better. And, in fact, it looks like my husband and sons will be meeting us in Rhinebeck--along with Ehren Ziegler and many many friends. Not to be missed! I also have an apology. I realized I’ve been living under a rock. Not having a job meant never buying anything. Avoiding buying things—meant no stores, no shopping, and no magazines (those suckers get expensive). This means no data in. So my data out has been… um… limited. As I left on the trip I got a heartfelt Tweet and Rav message from a listener in Norway who had some—I thought—important criticisms of where the show has been going over the last eight months. I think writing the book, starting a business, teaching while being a temporarily single mom, and moving all really sucked it out of me. But the podcast sincerely is like home to me. I've missed podcasting, I miss hearing from y’all, and I miss the way things used to be, too. So, my promise to you is this: I will try to do better. So many new and exciting things are coming, but much of it will have to wait until the boys are back in school (because right now they’re in “Camp Mom” and there’s only so much of me to go around). OH And I learned that anti-perspirant does a pretty decent job of cutting the bitterness of a mosquito bite. Seriously. July Incentive! Donate between now and July 31st and you will be put into the drawing for your own copy of the new Chop Bard book, Devouring Shakespeare; Five Simple Tools, personally autographed for you by Mr. Ehren Ziegler! Don't forget your copy of WWMDfK? It's getting great buzz, and I, personally, am knitting my way through it right now. Loving it!

Tell them to me, please.” (Genesis 40:8, New King James Version) 25 Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do: (Genesis 41:25, New King James Version)  18 “This dream I, King Nebuchadnezzar, have seen. Now you, Belteshazzar, declare its interpretation, since all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known to me the interpretation; but you are able, for the Spirit of the Holy God is in you.”     19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonished for a time, and his thoughts troubled him. So the king spoke, and said, “Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its interpretation trouble you.”     Belteshazzar answered and said, “My lord, may the dream concern those who hate you, and its interpretation concern your enemies!  20 “The tree that you saw, which grew and became strong, whose height reached to the heavens and which could be seen by all the earth, 21 whose leaves were lovely and its fruit abundant, in which was food for all, under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and in whose branches the birds of the heaven had their home— 22 it is you, O king, who have grown and become strong; for your greatness has grown and reaches to the heavens, and your dominion to the end of the earth.  23 “And inasmuch as the king saw a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, ‘Chop down the tree and destroy it, but leave its stump and roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze in the tender grass of the field; let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let him graze with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him’; 24 this is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High, which has come upon my lord the king: 25 They shall drive you from men, your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make you eat grass like oxen. They shall wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses.

100 Events for 100th International Women’s Day Dear Ladies and Gentlemen Tuesday March 8th 2011 is the
Centenary of International Womens' Day We are coming together for International Women's Day to celebrate and look to women for solutions, for stories and for inspiration. We are bringing together 100 events will be hosted at Glasgow’s Tramway and Hidden Gardens on Tuesday 8th March, including: speakers, story tellers, visual art, dance, music, film, and a massive amount of knitting. We are trying to provoke Scotland into asking questions regarding women in 2011 by collectively knitting between 60 and 100 million stitches to exhibit as a backdrop to this event. That, my friend, is a 21km scarf... or one massive blanket. Why the big blanket? Demographer's have shown that there are between 60 million and 100 million females missing from today's global population. Sheryl WuDunn's book "Half the Sky" investigates the oppression of women globally. Her stories shock. Only when women in developing countries have equal access to education and economic opportunity will we be using all our human resources. We are asking you to get involved.

The incident was a mile or so from our house and (not surprisingly) rather unnerving. We knew one of the victims and are still wrapping our heads around the event, the move, and everything.
