A podcast about fairy tales

6 notes

Sophie Bushwick, host of the fairy tale podcast Tabled Fables, delves into the origins of the Rapunzel story (“the mother of all hair stories”) and its surprising approach to gender.

This presentation was part of “You Are Hair,” a variety show about women’s hair in pop culture. It was mounted by Kseniya Yarosh and Eleanor Kagan, the hosts of Bonnie & Maude, the femme-centric film podcast, on March 11, 2014 at Littlefield in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Been working on this paperdoll set lately, only need to do a few more drawings and then this set will be done. Thinking of putting this one and my others on my currently empty etsy shop as PDF download/print yourself items - anyone even interested? | #littlemoondance #paperdolls #frogprince #fairytale #etsy #princess

August Book Photo Challenge Day 20: Book Recommendation
Go read Namesake. I freakin’ love Namesake. If you’ve been following my blog you know how much I love Namesake. It’s an ongoing webcomic written and illustrated by two awesome ladies that is about Namesakes, or people that have the ability to travel into “fictional” worlds that correspond with their name. So an Alice might go to Wonderland or a Wendy might go to Neverland. The main character, Emma, doesn’t have a Namesake name, but nevertheless finds herself in Oz despite the fact that she’s not a Dorothy, but things aren’t quite like she remembers them from the movie. She, along with the scarecrow, a talking pair of magical shoes, a smart and helpful munchkin who is the elected voice of her community, and the Wicked Warlock of the West — who might not actually be so wicked — go on a journey to help save Oz and get Emma home. Only Emma has a lot of other things to worry about besides the fate of Oz, namely, how she ended up there in the first place and figuring out her own story.
It’s got so many awesome female characters that I can’t name them all. Emma is a badass, get things done, and has a sword, besides being entirely relate-able and amazing. Not to mention that the art is ridiculously beautiful. Basically, it’s an amazing story, I’m thrilled to own the first two books, and I really just want a friend I can fangirl about this with. Because I’m the only person I know irl who reads it.
And the best part is you can read it all for free right here! You don’t have to order anything or go to a bookstore or pay any money! (Unless you want to own physical copies like I do.) So that means you all can go read Namesake right now. There is no excuse. Go. Read it. Yeah, you. Now.

Yes. All these things.
