1. m: i need to go into the office tomorrow if you want to keep sitting around in your feminist cul-de-sac.
     

    1. kj: SHE'S SUCH A CAREERIST WHY IS SHE SAYING IT IN HER OWN WORDS WHEN SOMEONE ELSE ALREADY SAID IT.
     

  1. "i like to work with what i’m given, and if there’s something a little troubling about a tune, i like to transform it."
    — barbara browning, “having one’s cake and eating it too,” at the living labor conference 
     
  2. when i told patricia clough i didn’t know what to do about having gotten into nyu’s performance studies program she said “you’re going to have to go into debt,” then set me up with a second opinion. randy martin, her former student, the head of a department at tisch, and a marxist, told me that i should absolutely not go into debt for grad school. they were both right, and here i am, a few years later, having my cake and eating it too. it’s hard to imagine anything better than barbara browning speaking and ann pellegrini responding in the room where i knew i was going to do it. josé had his intro class there, too, and i don’t think anyone laughed harder than i did when he compared richard schechner to lisa stansfield.

  4. "if they could enjoy what they seek to accumulate they would stop being so mean."
    — fred moten at the living labor keynote, “collective head” 
     

    1. ap: she's all about the party.
    2. kj: SHE IS? i would never describe her that way. i just told someone i thought she was a bummer.
    3. ap: not that kind of party.
     
  5. lazz:

    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

     

    1. kj: i wanted to put that quote on tumblr but it's the only good quote in the paper and i don't want people who come to the presentation to feel like they didn't get anything
    2. m: i like your tits
     

    1. aliza's friend: is the rose bigger than your head?
    2. kj: it's like the same size as my head. it might be smaller than my head.
