Showin' some link love

Again, I apologize for the scant postings. I finally have some time off, and you'd think I would post something of value so this week doesn't look so piddly, but my lethargy has set it, and I've chosen to lay around watching cartoons rather than work on anything. Well, I am doing some cross-stitch, but that's not really what I'd call productive. Anyway, since I don't do link roundups very often, I thought it was time for one (especially since many people have been very nice and linked to me).

First, RMJ is calling for submissions for her 50 Books for Problematic Times. This is a response to Newsweek's list of 50 must-reads, which is pretty white and male--so if you have any suggestions for authors check out her post. I personally can't wait for this list.

I'd also like to direct you to Craig Brimm's brief post Honkies & Homies. It's pretty funny. And if you haven't done so already, I strongly recommend checking out his whole blog, kiss my black ads.

Next, check out DaisyDeadhead's post Women have the right to be shirtless. It's pretty awesome, as are the comments to the post. I particularly love the "omg what about the menz popping boners" argument. Whoops, don't care.

Because my hatred for this movie runs deep, here's a post about the presentation of race in the new Transformers movie, written by Gary Collins and published as a guest post over at Macon D's stuff white people do (also highly recommended).

And finally, check out this post about superhero poses. It's a little...infuriating. But, a very helpful lady has a follow-up to this how-to book, in which she's switched the sexes of the poses to illustrate how absolutely fucking ridiculous they are. It's highly entertaining.

Hope everyone else is having a lazy weekend. Don't worry, I'll get back on track eventually.
