Band Vs. An Impromptu Spoken-Word History Lesson

14 Comments on Band Vs. An Impromptu Spoken-Word History Lesson

So, when we last left this roughly-continuous episode, the Sourballs got drunk and drew on each other with markers, and Turpentine kinda ended up on the floor. And now, our pal Atomic Domme gets a little moment in the spotlight — and no, we’re not going to actually see this. The next one jumps forward in time.

PS:  Here’s Mina Loy on a tumblr called Hotties From History. I debated quite a bit about which historical figure Domme would want to talk about in this totally-outta-left-field sort of way, but she seemed right. Additional educational notes, in case you’re interested: Loy never published her feminist manifesto in her lifetime, possibly because some of it gets into troubling pseudo-fascist territory that’s otherwise not typical of the author. I like a lot of the rest of it, though — she’s one of my favourite early 20th century figures. Oh, yeah, and the erotic poetry isn’t particularly scandalous…but hey, I guess it was in 1915.
