A little collage I made of DFW’s words of self-encouragement at the top of his freewriting pages. I actually find it pretty heartening.
CHRISTMAS IN APRIL
the girls panel at living labor, the q&a convo about whether wasting time/leisure/crime (as represented on tumblr, in the bling ring, and spring breakers) constitutes an emerging form of resistance, or perhaps a cul-de-sac in feminism that resists making value judgments about life in contemporary capitalism
"Despite her uncompromising stance on women’s liberation and her scorn for the “daddy’s girls” who populated liberal feminism, Solanas is actually a perfect example of what these days is known as “choice” feminism. Simply put, she believed that her behavior was liberation because she had chosen it. She was a lesbian who slept with men both companionably and vocationally; she was an anticapitalist who plied the world’s oldest profession; she was an antiauthoritarian who sought out big names to legitimize her work. To her, these weren’t compromises, but markers of freedom."
