She follows me into the bathroom, watches me struggle to put on eyeliner.
"Trace inside the lid," she says and shows me how to do it. The effect is subtle but striking.
"And when you put on lipstick, make sure you go all the way around so it gets in the corners. And use the green eyeshadow, maybe with a bit of purple, it'll accent your eyes."
When I'm on my way out the door: "Call if you're going to be out late!"
I'm very bad with dates, but I think that my mom z"l died 11 years ago last Thursday. So let me tell you a story.
This is about, oh probably 4 or 5 years earlier.
Me: "Mom, can I wear your dress to a party?"
Mom: "Sure, which one do you want?"
We go to her closet, I pick out her nicest dress, a long, shimmery-black, Morticia Addams type deal. It fits; my mom was tall.
Then she asks, "do you need to use my makeup?"

Further CW: this article quotes an antisemitic post from a popular Gab user.
Host Epik.com is gleefully giving them a platform, with a blog post full of so many dog whistles it'll hurt your ears.
If you have any business ties to Epik, you might want to weigh in.
So this dude gave me his car bc I helped save his life last winter, plus he can't legally drive. He went on a weird racist and conspiracy laden rant last night and I told him off. Now he wants his car back. Sigh. It was nice while it lasted. You get stuff, you lose stuff, it's all the same in the end.

You want cops out of synagogues? You have to present an alternative. If prayers stopped bullets, well, we've done a lot of praying over the centuries.
We need well-organized, armed community self-defense in solidarity and collaboration with other targeted groups.

I think that maybe it's time to update my political litmus test from "where are you in the Russian Civil War" to "what side of the trenches are you in the fight against the cults, warlords, and feudal corporations"

I'm trying to transcribe this song. It's very hard to find, and I really am not feeling the chords in the anthology. Would anyone like to tell me what exactly is happening in these recordings, harmonically?

Here's what I ended up with. Verse 1 is in both the anthology and elsewhere, verse 2 is what was sung on Marek Edelman's funeral, and the rest is from the anthology. The refrain is from Edelman's funeral too, it is very slightly different from the anthology version too.

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
