Ariel Levy Pt. 1 | The Colbert Report

Ariel Levy is such a massive hero of mine; anyone who’s spent enough time with me in any sort of genuine context knows–if not by name–how much she has informed my current feminist views and has given voice and words to things which have infuriated me since childhood.

I have written about her ideas a few times: A New Burlesque Of Parody: Combatting Raunch Culture And “Porn Chic” Through Drag And Disidentification and the infamous Porn chic for women and girls.

Beautiful moments from the interview include: “I think sex is a little more personal than playing baseball” and “There are many ways to go wild, and they don’t all involve getting implants and waxing your nether regions.” Watch part 2.

Amy Sedaris | The Colbert Report

It goes without saying that Amy Sedaris is an inspiration to all of us not-hot-presenting (“hot” as in Ariel Levy’s definition, which is, essentially, “fuckable”) women and entertainers in particular, who’d just as soon be successful on their own merits rather than how well they conform to beauty standards and offer themselves up as male-gaze-eye-candy. And the tumbling at the end is random and beautiful.

Brian Greene | The Colbert Report

I sent this video to my mom; our e-dialogue went like this:

Vee: I want to hang out with this guy.
Mom: why? ‘cause he’s adorable? ’cause he’s smart?or just ’cause he laughs funny…?
Vee: Adorable smart and great laugh, yes, and he’s got this amazing energy in general and on the smartness point, I love it when people get so passionately excited about nerdy things so far from the mainstream and in particular so far outside of mainstream (ways of) thinking–I kind of identify with that. 😉 Plus he’s about making science accessible and specifically about bringing it into every-day, physical life. Hence I want to hang out with him. I miss that academic fervor.

Interview – Van Jones | The Colbert Report

The bio from his Huffington Post blog: “Van Jones is working to combine solutions to America’s two biggest problems: social inequality and environmental destruction.” I read an interview with him while catching up on my Sun back issues: Bridging The Green Divide: Van Jones On Jobs, Jails, And Environmental Justice
