Soooo how about that Girl-on-Gallery of ladies in swimsuits! Also, how about that article about Spinnerette and omg the Autostraddle Roundtable about “is there a lesbian generation gap?” Wow, that’s a lot of stuff. Also you have four more days to get your hands/eyes on every photo taken at Rodeo Disco!

So this is heavily contending to take the number two spot on my greatest website list. It’s called Hype machine and it’s an awesome place to find music. Lately my life has required that I only listen to up-tempo music and this site has tons of remixes, covers, mash-ups, and generally good music.

Urban Outfitters teamed up with Republic Bikes to launch a co-branded bike shop. You can assemble your own single-speed/fixed-gear bike. I created my own online one time and pretended that I could buy it — fun times!

    X! I la-la-LOVE hypem! I found out about a few months ago [thanks to my dj friend] and it’s just one of those sites I can be on for hours listening/looking for new music. Yay!

    i really love ruth bader ginsberg. sometimes i have dreams where rbg and madeline albright are my friends. is that weird? anyway, my favorite from that article is this line: “If you’re going to change things, you have to be with the people who hold the levers.” kind of reminds me of the women’s suffrage movement knowing that in order to gain traction they needed male voters on their side and how straight allies are super important to our progress as well.

    I totally agree with Carly about Ari! I watched her video on the Project Runway website yesterday, and I’m convinced that she’s gay. I’m sort of wondering if LiLo will do a double take when she guest judges on the show…

    1) I still maintain that Sam Ronson is quite smashing. Also, Ari Fish wears too much makeup.

    2) Admittedly not having read the article on the National Park Service’s “civil rights trails,” I’ve got this rather baffling image of queers of yore traipsing through woods and over mountains into the wilderness to escape persecution, a la Trail of Tears. (Do we get a Gay Reservation too??)

      1. it’s possible howevs that Ari Fish just submitted to too much airbushing? I like Sam-Ro too. I like her better in the pics where she’s younger and wasn’t so skinny yet.
      2. maybe it will be a little expedition to the site of the michigan womyn’s music festival?

    I’m acquainted with a few of the people on Miami Social. Sadly, the bisexual woman is not one of them.

    And Sarah Palin on twitter = amazing.
