Moving pictures

Last November we were invited to perform at the DIY Outspoken Showcase at Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds. My short film, The FU Story was also screened, and I got to be part of a very cool panel with Josie Long, Scout Niblett and Katie Harkin. Rosie Stoker has made a short doc of the day. You can see it here!  If you’d like to catch Adventures in Menstruating or Josie Long at the Fringe, we’re on the Ladyfest Edinburgh Cabaret tomorrow night from 8  – 11 at Leith Circle of Friends, Leith Walk. Josie’s on at the Pleasance Dome every night at 7, but tickets are selling out fast so grab them soon! (I have learned this from experience.)

Right – back to the fringe!


Leeds Part 1

I’m very excited to be doing a zine workshop in Leeds with Sarah later today (or tomorrow, in my head, once I’ve gone to bed and woken up again). After that we’ll be putting in a little open mic action at the Chemic for Riot Grrl.  If you’re in the area, you’d be very welcome.  

I’ve just stayed up far too late to watch Day of the Dead, so I may be speaking in zombie metaphors tomorrow. It’s pretty much par for the course at this time of year though. Before I get into a one-woman menstrual zombie representation debate, I’ll just say Annual Halloween party breakdown will go up Sunday, followed by a veritable opus of overdue posts.

Props to Leeds Uni Femsoc for hosting us again. We love those guys.


Leeds Femfest

…is on tonight at The Common Place in Leeds! Hope to see you there to see us, Amazon Molly and Fanny di Wanko!

Cities that begin with L, and the feminists who love them.

I’ve just done a podcast about subvertising for the Femme Fatale show, and will put it up in The A.V. Room sometime soon. Cheers to Ben who does funny topical stuff for sorting out the uploading and stuff.

I had a great time with Rosy from Femme Fatale down at Feminism in London, especially at the media workshop, where I got to practise not sounding lglib or stupid while promoting feminist events like tonight’s Reclaim the Night march in London. What we discovered at the workshop was  that I don’t yet have the kind of …punditude? to sound like anything other than a comedian, even when talking about serious issues, but there will be plenty of people on the march and at the rally point who do know how.

Details are at the link above for those who want to attend, and we’d like to shout a big hello to the people we know at  Femsoc and  Feminism in London pals who are supporting the event.
