The art world can suck, but for these people it sucks just a little bit more.

“Have a nice day,” he said.
A nice day. How utterly banal.

The London Tube (subway) map simplified. Quite accurate really.
Much easier, sorry Mr Beck!

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard gave a rousing speech today countering opposition leader Abbott and his sexism. It’s in full above, but here’s some choice moments from the speech:
“I will not be lectured on sexism and misogyny by this man. And the government will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. Not now, not ever.
The leader of the opposition says that people who hold sexist views and are misogynists are not appropriate for high office. Well I hope the leader of the opposition has got a piece of paper and that he is writing out his resignation, because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn’t need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror. That’s what he needs.”
I’m unfamiliar with Australian politics generally, and with Julia Gillard, but well then. I’m a big fan of this speech and these sentiments. Talking back to sexism in this public, vocal, unflinching way is important and wonderful to watch.
