EDIT: Forgot how much people on here don't like posts without pictures. Specifically naked pictures.
But you should read this- it's important.

Kate vs the 'Work for Free' culture.
From my tumblr.


Yesterday morning, I received this email that, after first filling me with rage, I felt I should not only respond to it, but also put it online. Yes, I could have...

I thought your message was very cordial, for someone filled with rage.

It's odd, I've yet to find the grocery store, or automobile dealer who's agreed to let me sample their produce, or have their vehicle upon my promise that, if I like it, I'll buy all of my groceries and my next vehicle, from their establishment. whatever

sminks:
Your response was very well written- I am sure I could not have thought of a nicer way to put it. I do find that the work for free if you are in a creative field culture is something that really needs to be looked at and then kicked in the bum- If I make something I should be paid, it is not a privillage to simply be asked to do it or first ones free the next one we MIGHT pay you or get you more gigs. Pfft. The only thing that will stop this happening is to do what you're doing and stand your ground. xx

Feeling much better...I hope this lasts.

Need to learn to focus on things, not worry about them. I really think its that simple.


In other news it is late July, and I have spent all day in tights and a jumper, walking around with an umbrella.
Not because Im insane....summer just seems to have completely forgotten about us and our dreary isle.

Glad you are feeling better! Summer has forgotten us in Portland, as well. Although I would rather it be drizzly and cool than super hot.
phinn:
Sorry I haven't been round yet. I've been a bit poorly and this glandular fever thing kicks the shit out of me and makes things take ages to go... But you'd know all about being illfrown

I do miss our twin peaks nights though. Last summer was good for sure. I'm not sure if you ever realise how much I really appreciated you being there when I was getting used to being on my own. I have moved into E-Js now so I'm a little closer to you... whoop whoop x

Big hugs xxx

Haha that happened to me a little while back. Was walking by a shop and thought this person standing in the window was a mannequin, then she moved and I almost screamed.
miranda:
What a great idea and you look so pretty in that picture! I'm sure many people had to look back a few times, haha.

Hope the European tour is going well/has been great for you! Much love. ♥

Ani Difranco was name-checked at the last European Feminist Sumit if I remember. I actually only know of her through my acoustic guitaring.
