The Indestructible One Syllable Primer: For Home and School Use, One Hundred Illustrations (New York: McLoughlin Brothers, 1878).
It’s back-to-school day here at USF, and in honor of the new school year, we found this primer from 1878. Unlike its Puritan ancestors, which were strictly morally didactic, this primer juxtaposes moral lessons (do not lie!) with more entertaining illustrations of animals. This primer is “indestructibly” printed on linen rather than the more easily ripped paper.

'Pride' is released in UK cinemas today

“the personal contact made possible by twinning was important for LGSM. The London magazine City Limits described LGSM members visiting Dulais: ‘Welcomed into the miners’ homes for the weekend, whole families apparently started discussing gay rights and human sexuality over the tea-table’. The discussions in Dulais started before LGSM members arrived, and one member of a support group admitted that they were expecting ‘a bunch of weirdos’. Another Dulais woman commented that ‘it’s had to take the strike for us to get more friendly’ with lesbians and gay men.”

You can read more about the true story behind the movie in ‘Solidarity and Sexuality: Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners 1984–5’, from the History Workshop Journal.

On October 15th Dig That Book is gonna release a limited number of Beach Sloth’s book ”It Doesn’t Matter What You Look Like On The Outside It’s What’s On The Internet That Matters,” which contains 200+ pages of Beach Sloth content, a lot of which I’ve been told has never been seen before. This book contains multitudes. Most of this book is very different from the Beach Sloth blog content. It contains funny poems about bros jogging through the park, kind poems about sharing fruit with friends, observational poems about past roommates, eccentric non-kid friendly poems about Nintendo Bukkakes, heart felt poems about loved ones, poignant poems about those who have passed on, beautiful imagistic poems about sharing time together in silence in a park in Late October, poems about ubiquitous M&Ms, poems, poems about getting mugged in August after a not-so-pleasant day, poems about love and life, poems that mostly refuse any categorization at all. It contains stories too. Rob Ford the crack-smoking Toronto Mayor makes a cameo. And all this is just in the first 100 pages or so.

October 15th the first x-number of people to paypal Beach Sloth x-number of dollars at pleasepaybeachsloth@gmail.com will receive a very nice printed edition of this collection. When that limited number is gone, we will announce when and how the next ones will be released. I’d urge anyone who has ever been in contact with Beach Sloth to get in on this and support the Sloth’s work. Because like Beach Sloth says, “support each other.”      

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

E. E. Cummings, Since Feeling Is First (via colporteur)
