BITCH MEDIA'S (AND BITCH MAGAZINE'S) MIX TAPES
MC Sweet Tee
The glorious and incomparable Bitch Magazine compiles weekly feminist mix tapes such as this one from Dope Folks Records, a record label that specializes in rare and unreleased limited-edition vinyl releases. The mix features female hip-hop artists “from big names to virtual unknowns from the Golden Era to the mid-’90s”—all from the personal vinyl collection of the Dope Folks team.
Can you ask for anything better than this? You can't. There's no Cardi B or Nicki but godDAMN this is an excellent bunch of ladies.

JOHN KENN MORTENSEN
This artist draws images that look like the inside of my mind (not all the time, don't make it weird, sometimes the inside of my mind has a lot more sexy fan art). A Danish artist sometimes known by the name Don Kenn, Mortensen somehow mixes magic and innocence and horror to evoke that intense feeling of being a child, alone in a dark forest, or a wide ocean, or a grim city street. I don't know why I find the drawings whimsical and almost charming sometimes... not all of Mortensen's monsters are as horrifying as others. Some are pretty adorable. But it's the sense of possibility that they inspire that make me want to fill my house with them. They seem like something out of a fairytale or a nightmare (and most old fairytales are pretty nightmarish.)
His book is available on Amazon and I just realized this while looking up pictures for this post! So BLOG OVER, goodbye, I'm off to spend money.
