I think a sefardi trans girl superhero would complete my existence.
I would cry tears of joy for this.
has anyone read Hereville
it’s a little indie comic series about an orthodox jewish girl who is also a badass
it’s so fantastic
that sounds pretty great, i’m gonna check that out
I also recommend Unterzakhn, which is a standalone about two Jewish sisters in early 20th century New York
and A Bintel Brief, which is an illustrated collection of new immigrant Jewish letters in early 20th NY as well
and Klezmer, a series of graphic novels about a traveling Jewish musician in Europe in the early 20th century

Hi Everyone! Hope you are all well. I was unceremoniously taken off the schedule at Oiistar last month after politely informing them that their policy of taking 30% of their servers tips for the house is illegal, and my favorite ever seasonal job as Team Lead at Family Fun Fest (playing with building blocks and reading books to kids) has sadly just come to an end.
Does anyone have any leads on jobs/job openings in Chicago? I have management experience and I am good at kids, food/serving, and the internet. Hit me up!

n. the awareness of the smallness of your perspective, by which you couldn’t possibly draw any meaningful conclusions at all, about the world or the past or the complexities of culture, because although your life is an epic and unrepeatable anecdote, it still only has a sample size of one, and may end up being the control for a much wilder experiment happening in the next room.

United States copyright regulators are agreeing with Wikipedia’s conclusion that a monkey’s selfie cannot be copyrighted by a nature photographer whose camera was swiped by the ape in the jungle. The animal’s selfie went viral. The US Copyright Office, in a 1,222-page report discussing federal copyright law, said that a “photograph taken by a monkey” is unprotected intellectual property.

“How Coolness Defined the World Wide Web of the 1990s” via The Atlantic explains how crucial awards were to early net culture.
These recognitions were regarded as welcomed honors, visually stamped on the distinguished site with a graphical status icon that bestowed a mark of “quality.” Accumulate enough of these accolades and new awards.html pages would be erected to showcase the entire collection.
