  • #shaggydog : mom was away for 5 days. She has been back for 24 hours and I’ve been on shadow-duty, following her around and keeping a close eye on her. It’s exhausting. •
Me: I love finding a book that is just a little bit different than all the rest and #anamericanmarriage is just that. When newlywed Roy is wrongfully incarcerated, everything changes. Told in part through letters written between Roy and his wife, this beautiful story explores not only race and justice, but also the ties that bind us to one another. It examines one marriage amidst extraordinary circumstances and will leave you heavy and thoughtful. A beautiful book and a favourite from this year. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ •

Gonzo journalist Craven Rock and artist Damon Thompson take readers through one of the most infamous subcultures in America with JAGGALO COUNTRY: INSIDE THE WORLD OF INSANE CLOWN POSSE AND AMERICA’S WEIRDEST MUSIC SCENE. But there is much more than that in these scant 223 pages. 
Before attending “The Gathering” (an annual music show headlined, operated, and controlled by ICP) Rock studied this unique subculture. He learned a little about their pseudo-Judaeo-Christian religion, Dark Carnival, the almost metaphysical origin of the band, and a few surface level bits of information on Juggalo society. This, however, did not prepare him for The Gathering. It did not prepare him for the vagaries, depravities, wonders, kindnesses, and Bacchanalian debauchery he witnesses there. It did not prepare him to stumble onto an empathetic connection to the subculture.... It did not prepare him to see all the good and bad of it.... I will not get into the details because to do so would be to give away too much of Rock’s exploration and understanding of this simultaneously complex and simple subculture.  All I will say is that it is an informative read about a subculture of people who, by and large, came up like me. And I for one would like to thank Rock for opening my eyes up to it.

Favorite line? This is a hard one because Rock has a way with words that’s rough around the edges in all the right ways. But I think the best one comes up near the end and it’s simple, all encompassing for Juggalo culture, and maybe even a little moving: “And I, this scrubby ex-punk rock kid trying to be a journalist, stare into the clown face and I see that it’s not about the size of one’s bank account, but the size of one’s heart. And Juggalos got heart. They really got fucking heart.” #readinglist #juggalos #juggalettes #thegathering #icp #insaneclownposse #cravenrock #gonzojournalism #journalism #microcosmpublishing #reading #nonfiction #readinglist2019 Gonzo journalist Craven Rock and artist Damon Thompson take readers through one of the most infamous subcultures in America with JAGGALO COUNTRY: INSIDE THE WORLD OF INSANE CLOWN POSSE AND AMERICA’S WEIRDEST MUSIC SCENE.

  • I've been consuming @gingerhazing's art all wrong, and by that I mean chronologically. I somehow read Lumberjanes first, then got totally obsessed with @dreamworksshera, so it felt like a very appropriate timing to finally read Nimona fresh out of SheRa season 4. Mind you, this has been on my to-read list for years, and actually on my Kindle, waiting, for about a year, and it was a delight.
Can we talk about the fact that Noelle is 27, graduated in 2013 and 6 years later is the showrunner of a Netflix hit that already had 4 seasons? (albeit all in one year but that just means more for me!)
I feel like her work is as if Rebecca Sugar and Rainbow Rowell had an artistic love child (which is why it was very nice to find out she did the cover for Fangirl)
She made a fan for life and if you like inclusive, witty, funny, heartfelt art I highly recommend everything! I've been consuming @gingerhazing's art all wrong, and by that I mean chronologically.

  • “The greatest gift in life is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide mind. It is a moral illumination.” - Elizabeth Hardwick 📚 #Gratitude30, day 18: books. I’m so grateful for whatever initially compelled me to join @bookofthemonth. This monthly subscription is one of the best things I ever did for myself — these are just a few of the books I’ve devoured over the past few months, and I’m so excited to see what new reads I’ll get to choose from in the months to come. $14.99/month is beyond worth it for vetted quality, critic-recommended books (including tons of early releases), so if you’ve got a reader in your life, this could make a great holiday gift — hint, hint 😘 “The greatest gift in life is the passion for reading.
