Saturday’s Gallery Opening

I had an opening at Images Gallery at 1823 W. Wilson Saturday night. It was the shortest, but maybe the best. I’m continuing to work on my memoir of childhood, the part of my childhood spent on the west side of Chicago, concentrating on my building and the stories of my neighbors. Thanks to Google, I can see those buildings and remember our lives. My block remains as it was, except for the corner mom and pop grocery store, replaced by a Citgo gas station. When I see the buildings, I remember the people. It’s more difficult when I have no aid to memory. I can’t go around the block in my head now that the neighborhood stores no longer exist.

More From A Rampant Feminist

A while back, we posted Cindy Gallop’s TED Talk about her project Make Love Not War. We didn’t know about the Ted Interview from the same year. Until now. Enjoy.

Glamorous Nerd Girls

Wouldn’t this be fun to do? Get some friends together and some wild clothing from a resale shop and lots of cheap makeup and wigs and play dress up. Of course, take photos. ¬†Sent to us by Tom G. watching the internet, so we can sleep.¬† And Halloween is only a month away… .

Mighty Mindy

The Mindy Project is one of my favorite shows. Mindy is brilliant. And here she is on The Jimmy Kimmel show being brilliant about people who give her left handed compliments about her clothing and her weight. The only thing I have against Mindy Khaling is that the women are wasted on her show. She is the only woman on that show that gets good lines, and she writes the show so she could make the women characters more funny. Come on, Mindy, shape up! (No backhanded compliment intended.)
