We can go to science fiction for its sense of wonder, its power to take us to far-off places and future times. We can go to political fiction to understand injustice in our own time, to see what should change. We may go to poetry — epic or lyric, old or new — for what cannot change, for a sense of human limits, as well as for the music in its words. And if we want all those things at once we can read the stories of James Tiptree Jr., real name Alice Sheldon.

One time Burlesque queen, Gypsy Rose Lee working on her auto-biography in 1956 - the memoir gave rise to the stage play Gypsy in '59 and the subsequent film version of '62 staring Roz Russell and Natalie Wood.
Title: [Gypsy Rose Lee, three-quarter length portrait, seated at typewriter, facing right] / World Telegram & Sun photo by Fred Palumbo. Creator(s): Palumbo, Fred, photographer Date Created/Published: 1956.
Gypsy Rose Lee 1956. Trying to describe what Gypsy was (a "high-class" stripper), H. L. Mencken coined the term ecdysiast. Her style of intellectual recitation while stripping was spoofed in the number "Zip!" from Rodgers and Hart's Pal Joey, a play in which her sister June appeared. Gypsy can be seen performing an abbreviated version of her act (intellectual recitation and all) in the 1943 film Stage Door Canteen.

Author of The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). His predictions of the future were uncanny.

“Hardly anybody ever writes anything nice about introverts. Extroverts rule. This is rather odd when you realize that about nineteen writers out of twenty are introverts. We have been taught to be ashamed of not being ‘outgoing.’ But a writer’s job is ingoing.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

“Writing makes no noise, except groans, and it can be done everywhere, and it is done alone.” —Ursula K. LeGuin
Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (California,1929) es una escritora estadounidense. Ha publicado obras dentro de numerosos géneros, principalmente ciencia ficción y fantasía, aunque también ha escrito poesía, libros infantiles y ensayos. Se considera a sí misma como una mujer feminista y taoísta2 y en sus novelas aparecen a menudo ideas anarquistas.

Right now, we need writers who know the difference between production of a market commodity and the practice of an art. Developing written material to suit sales strategies in order to maximize corporate profit and advertising revenue is not the same thing as responsible book publishing or authorship. ~ Ursula K.

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’” ~ Isaac Asimov #quote
Isaacasimov, Isaac Asimov, Quotes, Anti Intellectualism, Truth, Book, Thought, Ignorance, People
It's the people that are proud of their ignorance that are the most troubling to me. People that parrot Fox news and/or the religious right without bothering to understand the issues in question.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'." - Isaac Asimov
Another pinner wrote: "This is a particularly important quote because it speaks to the idea that we need to admit our ignorance when discussing issues we know little about. It's better to have no opinion than an unfounded one."
I never thought much of Sci-fi until I picked up Isaac Asimov's book 'Bicentennial man & other stories' in my high-school library. I hated the cover and the first page was 'meh'... then I found that after a few more pages I couldn't put the book down. I borrowed it a lot reading it over and over. After graduating I plotted to steal the book from the library, then I saw someone reading it just as raptly as I had done... I smiled and left without the book.

Writing letters was a major genteel occupation every day for the lady and with numerous postal deliveries in London messages could be exchanged with almost modern speed. This charming lady (Ackermann 1813) is wearing morning dress and a pretty cap while she catches up with her correspondence.
Due to the war between England and France, and the restrictions of travel to the Continent, the designs of English gowns began to take on a character of their own, as French influence waned.

A young woman writes, bent over a table, a letter with a servant or messenger waiting, dog sleeping on a stool, and a lute. Typical example of the artist's late style which is characterised by the mannered faces and the slightly unnatural fall of the draperies. It shows his virtuoso ability to imitate textures.

1920 S, Lipsticks, Office, The New Yorker, Roaring 20 S, Roaring Twenties, Time, 1920S Fashion Lois Long, Flappers
Lois Long (AKA Lipstick), in the offices of the New Yorker. She wrote about fashion and nightlife; her columns were very popular, especially among people who never had the chance to visit a speakeasy.
Lois Long (right) Lois Bancroft Long (December 15, 1901 - July 29, 1974) was a popular American writer for The New Yorker during the 1920s. She was known under the pseudonym "Lipstick" and as the epitome of a flapper.
Lois Long. Legendary writer for The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. Epitome of the New York flapper of the Roaring 20s. First American fashion critic to approach fashion as art. Nymph. Sybarite. Wild woman. Chronicled her exploits in the decadent nightlife of the 20s under the alias "Lipstick."
Lipstick Lois Long or "Miss Jazz Age" was a writer for The New Yorker magazine, making more than most men. A rarity, she controlled her own finances, smoked, drank and slept with as many men as she preferred. Pseudonym was "Lipstick", her column was on nightlife and flappers.
Lois "Lipstick" Long. Columnist for The New Yorker magazine in the 1920's. Way ahead of her time. to summarize her life in her own words, "Tomorrow we may die, so let's get drunk and make love."
Lois Long, the New Yorker's flapper columnist 'Lipstick'. She wrote about speakeasies and celebrities and basically, "Sex And the City" for real. To summarize her lifestyle in her own words: "Tomorrow we may die, so let's get drunk and make love."
Lois Long (right) pictured in her office at the New Yorker. Early 1920s. Long (1901-1974) was the archetypal flapper: intelligent, beautiful and daring, she wrote insightful and witty commentary about fashion and NYC nightlife in the speakeasies for the brand new magazine The New Yorker. Yes, a woman writer who lived the life she wrote so wonderfully about.
Under the name "Lipstick", Lois Long covered the nightlife scene for The New Yorker during the 1920s. - I read about her in the novel - Flapper... wonderful book!
If I could choose some people from times past to party with, one would be Lois Long, the super-funny and equally talented columnist for the New Yorker. Lois was the definition of "flapper" and always had the scoop on the "it" places to be in New York during Prohibition. -- "We women had been emancipated and we weren't sure what we were supposed to do with all the freedom and equal rights, so we were going to hell laughing and singing…." --Lois Long (1901-1974). From Wall of Femmes:
Lois Lane my idol!!
