Water permeable nail polish info update - please read!
DON’T ACTUALLY USE INGLOT FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day. - source
"Like, u know. The word like is like, seen as something redundant, like the way female coded objects are like, u know, well, the colour pink or u wearing lipstick is seen as something unnecessary, but like, for some people it’s still like pretty enjoyable and it’s not like it’s hurting anyone else really.
And then like, the verb ‘to like’ something online is like, you know, when ur getting that ‘like’, you know what ur social value is in a money-driven society. But like at the same time it’s like based on something pretty positive and like actually some kind of support when like, u know u r liking someone’s selfie. U know, if we like think about ‘liking’ in relationship to selfie haters, well it might not be sellable to like hate on selfies but like, it’s pretty mean. But like yeah.”

From May 8th - June 7th 2014, Soma Contemporary Gallery Waterford will present Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze.
This exhibition will explore how young women exist online, and how the internet can be harnessed as a mode of self-expression. Through a variety of mediums including installation, video and photography, the work on display will investigate the ways in which new internet platforms have impacted on female identity, and in turn what it means to present yourself on-line as a female.
Bunny Collective are an all-female art collective originally formed at the Crawford College of Art and Design in September 2013. Since their formation, they have expanded to include a number of UK-based artists and have attracted international interest, including interviews with Dazed and Confused, and Brooklyn-based zine, The Le Sigh.
Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze will feature work from a number of emerging artists based in Cork and London. Their work will engage with themes such as identity construction online and alter egos; consumerism; the body as capital; fragmentation of self; teenage obsession; and how the internet can provide a positive alternative to male-dominated areas of artistic tradition. French collective Tiqqun’s seminal text, Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl will offer an important theoretical framework for how each of the artists will approach these issues.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONSHAG COLLECTIVE - ECTOPLASMS
Ectoplasm refers to a vomit-like substance produced by mediums during seances, supposedly as a manifestation of otherworldly spirits. For this performance salon and accompanying zine, we would like to use the phenomenon of ectoplasm as a way of thinking about the creation of the abject, what for Julia Kristeva constitutes that which has been discharged from the body, rendered excrement. How does the body function as a sight of transactions, of exits and entrances? In what ways is the abject haunted? What ghosts are coming out of you?
GIVE US UR BLOOD UR TEARS UR PUKE.
If you would like to perform in the salon, please email firstname.lastname@example.org a few sentences outlining what you would like to do by the 11th of April, 2014. Performances should be 5-15 minutes long, though we may also consider durational performances.
For the accompanying zine, we are looking for text and images—anything that can be printed—that engage the above themes. Please email zine submissions to email@example.com by the 18th of April 2014.
To live and to labour, or to live as labour, is to negotiate the extended processes of reproducing ourselves and our others that has come to define present modes of being. Codes and semiotics dictate our every interaction down to style, tone and gesture. However, the labour of ‘self-maintain’ occupies the interstices of both service and affective labour, requiring us to be accomplished at procuring and proffering semiotics, working in complicity with a larger set of hierarchies concerning how we perform and for whom.
This issue examines proposed alternatives that manifest a melancholic dissatisfaction and take pains, and pleasure, to disturb predetermined identities, systems, orders.
Contributors include; Maeve Brennan, Lloyd Corporation, Rózsa Farkas, Daisy Grove-Lafarge, Grace Harrison, Tom Hastings, Sophie Hoyle, Tommie Introna, Huw Lemmey, Kathryn O’Regan, Florence Peake, Hannah Perry, Charles Pryor, Hannah Regel, Thea Smith, Jala Wahid.
