When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be “cured”. This often went along with shock therapies.
That it’s about time? I mean let’s be honest the woman was older than the fucking hills. Early eighties to be exact.
To her credit she stayed remarkably relevant long LONG after her time for relevancy had passed.
Remember, she got her start before they were playing Johnny Carson in fucking Black and White. As in she was a guest star on the JACK PAAR version of the Tonight Show.
You don’t even know who the fuck Jack Paar is. That’s how long she’s been in show business.
I’ve never been a big fan of Joan Rivers, and found her faux journalism to be pretty excruciating on the whole (Note: Her standup was actually pretty good), but the woman was fucking TENACIOUS and that’s a quality I can always respect.
preach. can we get off our SJW high horse for a fucking second a pretend to be humans
i never liked joan rivers but for christ sake, shut the fuck up. someone died. you don’t have to praise her, just show respect. y’all are a fuckin’ mob of single-mindedness.

Heaven just got a little funnier and the world a hell of a lot sadder.
There are those who search at length for inspiration, be it for a writing piece, sculpture, or fashion, but then there are artists who look no further than what is right in front of them, finding beauty in everyday objects, colours, and shapes. This week we are highlighting the wonderful blog WISP –– Where I See Fashion by Bianca Luini for her wonderful imagery and abstract view of clothing. The blog curator showcases clothing alongside art pieces with corresponding elements of colour, shape, and layout, with even a single image triggering the creative process for designers, which develops into a whole line of clothing or textile designs.
Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014
While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.
“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”
Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She alsofiled a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.
So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”
As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
holy SHIT this girl rules.
french onion! salty and sweet and smoky and so many textures.
