Jenny Hval ‘s new, as yet untranslated into English, book, “Girls Against God”, sounds interesting: apparently it reimagines Norwegian black metal if it had evolved in a different direction, into something not too far from riot-grrrl, or something like that

"Cartoon" Kate Evans has made a childrens book :)

"Call me ‘Astronaut’ or ‘Journalist’ or ‘Brain Surgeon’ or ‘Teacher’
Or ‘Carpenter’ or ‘Pastry Chef’ or ‘Play Worker’ or ‘Preacher’.
Women do all kinds of things while wearing lovely clothes
But please, don’t call me Princess, cos I’m never one of those.
My mum is not a Queen, you see. My dad is not a King.
Instead of being a Princess… I can be ANYTHING!"

There are few types of propaganda more potent than excitedly checking your peppers several times a day and thinking to yourself, "what if all work was this fulfilling"

I've never heard of Hanns Eisler before. This seems like a good introduction to his life, lacks links to the songs though.
"When the chief investigator, Robert Stripling, was asked what the purpose of reading so many quotes from Eisler’s songs, interviews, and articles may be, he retorted arrogantly “The purpose is to show that Mr. Eisler is the Karl Marx of communism in the area of music.” Eisler responded laconically: “That would flatter me!”"

RIP, Anthea Bell. In her honor I just re-read one of the many Asterix books she translated, and it's still wonderful. All those puns she either managed to translate from French or came up with even better English counterparts.

Does anyone already started a project to duplicate events from Facebook to any other public tool out there?

I mean, something like demosphere, but for every kind of event. 🤔

UK cis folks: PLEASE go and fill out this survey before the end of the week to help out our trans siblings.

Should only take you twenty minutes or so, if you're writing your own answers, but you can copy paste the examples.

It's really important to send a message to the UK government that simple changes in our legislation can make the lives of trans people infinitely better.
