Let me tell all you Fangirls about a webseries that I’ve recently become pretty obsessed with. The child of the YouTube channel StyleLikeU, the What’s Underneath Project is both all about style and not at all about style. It is the most beautiful contradiction.
It has seemed to me that good high school sex education is damn near impossible to come by. I’ve talked before about the lack of solid curriculum presented in the US, but I wanted to see if it really was as bad as it appears to be. So, I rallied some great people together and had them spill the beans about the ways of their high school health classes. Unfortunately, I was entirely correct in thinking there’s gaps when it comes to educating on sex & sexuality.
If you follow us on Twitter, you probably know that last night we were at the incredible Fangirls Night Out at Earthworld Comics in Albany. It’s always a delight of friendly ladies, enlightening nerd talk, and inevitable Fangirling. Upon reflecting on the night on the way home, I was reminded of all of the terrible experiences I had before we started going to the amicable wonderland of Earthworld.
I watched one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen this week, Fangirls. It instantly became a favorite. It’s about a brilliant idea of a live show, what it ends up delivering, and what it means. Mortified Nation tells the story of adults, and the ghosts of their hilarious childhood selves.
“The Reason New York City Never Sleeps? It’s Next Door Neighbors Are Monsters and Creeps!” That’s the full title of this book, Fangirls, and I had the pleasure of picking it up a few months ago at Small Press Expo from none other than Joe Infurnari himself. Being a huge fan of his series Bunker, I was a bit starstruck seeing him tabling there. However, I calmed a great deal after a delightful chat with him and a talk about this book. After hearing bits of its stories, I had to get it and read through the whole thing. Fantastic rhymes mixed with Infurnari’s brilliant illustration mixed with ridiculous stories about New York? I think my dreams just came true.
Fangirls! Awhile back, I picked up a pretty awesome book at the comic shop. I flipped around through it, but this week I finally got around to giving it some proper love. Girl Comics is a collection released by marvel that isn’t just a bunch of comics about women, it’s comics made my women. And hot damn, is this stuff great.
This week, Fangirls, we’re talking about the power of words. It amazes me how much words can move us, and arouse us. This stuff has surely been happening well before fan fiction and 50 Shades of this or that. Read a few well detailed sexy sentences and things are sure to get surprisingly steamy. Read More »
