Amy Poehler rocks my world

Twisty of I Blame the Patriarchy disparages Bust magazine, and I can't say that I disagree with her critiques. But check out this quote from Amy Poehler, of Saturday Night Live, in the latest issue of Bust, which I've just gotten around to reading:

"We were just talking about those American Apparel ads. They're fucking gross, man. Look, I love beautiful girls too. I think everyone should be free to have their knee socks and sweaty shorts, but I'm over this weird, exhausted girl. I'm over the girl that's tired and freezing and hungry. I like bossy girls, I always have. I like people filled with life. I'm over this weird media thing with all this, like, hollow-eyed, empty, party crap."
She also disparages the "pencil-thin vagina mustache" that characterizes today's pornified pubic hair and calls for "female comedies to be like full, giant '70s bushes right now, not tiny little pubic mustaches."

I love her!

I enjoyed the Amy Poehler interview too. Also, Caroline and I have a blog now (although there isn't much on it right now).

Amy Poehler rocks my world as well... and so does Tina Fey. Basically the entire SNL news desk is as good as it's been in a while.

New blog address - I switched to livejournal and changed the name.

Note: female pubic hair was topic of discussion in Women's Contemporary Pop Culture seminar today. We watched a for-women, by-women lesbian porn tape, and lo and behold, the clean-shaven and landing-strip looks took the day. Someone actually blurted out during the strap-on action, "I thought that lesbians would have more hair." (It wasn't me; for my part, I wasn't expecting as much liquid as was happening. I didn't verbalize this, though.) Yay for porn in class.
