For real though why do boys complain about kissing girls who have red lipstick on? It just gets on your lips so now you’re wearing it too?? It’s a free makeover and now you’re lookin fab why complain??? So ungrateful?????

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

This. Is. Infuriating.
I’ll stick with my local library, thanks — and that’s for books I don’t think I’ll be reading more than once. For fiction, at least, two reads is worth a buy, even if it’s just to encourage the author.
(I’ve always privately wished I could just check the book out of the library and then send the author a micropayment as support, but I think that idea may be more than a few years ahead of its time.)

^ That’s a great idea.
And yeah as a starving self-pubbed author I hate every bit of this.

Delightful portrait of Virginia Woolf by artist Ping Zhu, who seems to capture Woolf at the very moment she is pondering the creative benefits of keeping a diary or composing another passionate love letter to Vita Sackville-West.

CHRIS PRATT IS THE BEST IMPROVISER I CAN’T

"Cutting through it was the lacerating catharsis of whatever guitar she was channeling the life force of at the moment. While Annie played, her body lost the robotic rigidity and, in a couple instances, she melted onto the floor in flashes of such intense focus that I found myself tearing up from the whole spectacle of it. Toward the end, she pretended to collapse on stage, wiped out by the power of her guitar solo and revived only by the presence of a new guitar. The juxtaposition was beautiful and resonant: Here was a person escaping the robotic and the electric, becoming human through the power of music. The medium was the message. It was fucking cool and also fucking brilliant."

Annie Clark’s *always* on point with “Your Lips Are Red” and it’s pretty amazing to watch her gain popularity as much as she has since I first got into her music about 5 years ago.

If you haven’t seen the Pitchfork performance from this past weekend you should watch the last 10 minutes just for this track. It’s fucking wicked. Here it is in 2011, during the Strange Mercy tour.
