"I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops."
If you think abortions ok, remember what Horton says.
Awkward. Dr. Seuss and his wife were really liberal and pro-choice. They’ve even threatened to sue pro-life organizations for using this quote the wrong way (the way you’re doing it actually). I guess you didn’t already know that Horton Hears a Who is about the American occupation of Japan post-WWII. He even dedicated it to his dear Japanese friend.
Mrs. Geisel (Mrs. Seuss) continued donating to Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive health and rights after her husband died.
I READ THIS JOY DIVISION BOOK AND CAME BACK WITH 12 FUN FACTS.
There are few bands as tragic and iconic as Joy Division, the seminal English post-punk group from the late ’70s led by its enigmatic frontman, Ian Curtis. For a band that lasted so few years (a little over three) with only two studio albums, its influence on other bands reaches far and beyond, and its story is one that’s told over and over again. Much of the fascination around the band is built on how tragically short-lived it was, as it abruptly ended when singer Curtis hanged himself on the eve of their big U.S. tour, arguably at the band’s peak. This was 33 years ago—May 18, 1980—when Curtis was only 23 years old.
The Joy Division story has been told endlessly, immortalized in several books and even a few films (most notably Michael Winterbottom’s 24 Hour Party People and Anton Corbijn’s Control), none being able to shake off the mysticism and doom surrounding the band. But earlier this year, one of the band’s very own, bassist Peter Hook, put out a Joy Division memoir called Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division (named after the band’s first album) and it’s a refreshing take on a tale that has been told so many times. And for obvious reasons—here was the story of the band relayed to us by an insider for the very first time.
