The Warning Signs Of Abuse

  • He speaks disrespectfully about his former partners
  • He is disrespectful towards you
  • He does favors for you that you don’t want or puts on such a show of generosity that it makes you feel uncomfortable

wearepioneerspress:

From the author of our favorite new memoir, Everybody Else’s Girl, comes a sweet little $1 zine collecting self-care tips. Sarah Rose’s Better Days: Stuff that helps with all this anxiety is about things that have worked for her; it’s about how she’s pulled out of dark spots and the…

I don’t usually endorse businesses or products, certainly not on my blog but … I just got a big order from Pioneers Press. I am, as always impressed with the promptness and personal attention I get from the rad folks over at the Hard 50. They’re getting rid of old stock, so my Slingshot shirt was free! Now is a really good time to pick up some cheap shirts and free stuff.

"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.

Ciara Xyerra : extortion is so punk rock

At least once or twice a month I have a discussion with someone new to the zine community about why I chose not to support Microcosm Publishing. Here is Ciara’s blog post about the cancellation of the Microcosm-related “Bikes and Dinner” event in Lawrence, KS. 

If anybody thinks the current lolsuit affecting the lives of my friends (& indirectly me/my career) is a brand new and exciting way of Microcosm Publishing fucking people over, you’re wrong!

I love the sweet, delicious smell of long-distance bullying and intimidation in the morning. Makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It has a certain kind of nostalgia to it, like that time my mom called up and screamed at me for three hours about how I’m a heroin-addicted slut that nobody will ever love. Ahhhhh, childhood.

Agreed. Dude is the worst - history of abuse and manipulation, failed accountability, and exploitative personal and business relationships with women. To say nothing of the shit they tacked onto Portland buttonworks. Ugh ugh ugh.

Most of our shirts our now $5 and $6! Plus, we still have a ton of FREE SHIRTS and other rad freebies up on our site here. You pay the shipping, we send the loot. 

Hope everyone is enjoying some warmer (t-shirt) weather out there. 

Love from the farm,

This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.

if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face


So cool
