In the magazine this week, Jill Lepore investigates the female superhero’s feminist origins:

"It isn’t only that Wonder Woman’s backstory is taken from feminist utopian fiction. It’s that, in creating Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston was profoundly influenced by…

Paul Ramirez Jonas: Longer Day, 1997
I woke up at dawn in Brooklyn, New York, got in my car, and headed west. I drove as far west as I could until sundown. Speeding towards the sun would extend my day, perhaps for as much as an hour. I was on a straight and flat highway somewhere in the middle of the United States when the sun began to set on the horizon. At that point, I turned on the video camera to capture the end of my race against the sun, and my futile attempt to make the day last forever. I did however succeed in extending the sunset a minute longer than if I had stood still.
Love this piece, which is such a perfect compliment to Another Day, acquired for the Gugg show.

MIT Robotic Cheetah

Oh HELL YES. Notice in the 2nd gif the “cheetah” runs untethered.

"MIT researchers have developed an algorithm for bounding that they’ve successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah."

AWESOME.

"The key to the bounding algorithm is in programming each of the robot’s legs to exert a certain amount of force in the split second during which it hits the ground, in order to maintain a given speed: In general, the faster the desired speed, the more force must be applied to propel the robot forward. In experiments the robot sprinted up to 10 mph and MIT researchers estimate the robot may eventually reach speeds of up to 30 mph.

Coooooooooool.

“In your dreams you can buy expensive cars”

a found poem from Miley Cyrus’s V Magazine interview (Sept ‘14)

(previously)

come over tonight
help me fix all this shit
because it’s kind of a mess
it keeps being too heavy

money can buy you a bunch of shit
but besides that
there’s no more happiness
there’s no point in me
getting any fucking richer

people
I go through them all
they’re a little fucked up
and childish

I’m figuring out the story now
it’s still not quite 100% done
I just wanted to give myself something
something that made me happy

Irreplaceable - Chief/Sharon: I could have another you by tomorrow/so don’t you ever for a second get to thinking/you’re irreplaceable 
XO - Saul/Ellen: Nobody sees what we see/they’re just hopelessly gazing
Jealous - Six: I never broke one promise/and I know when you not honest
Ego (feat. Kanye West) - Gaius Baltar: My ego is my imaginary friend/(s)he was with me when I was only imagining 
Halo - Helo: I swore I’d never fall again/but this don’t even feel like falling/gravity can’t forget to pull me back to the ground again
Radio - Dualla: I think I’m in love with my radio/’cause it never lets me down
Freakum Dress - Six (the version in Gaius’ head): Soon as you saw me, turned on by how the dress was fitting right/short and backless (backless, backless)/see my silhouette in the moonlight
If I Were A Boy - Starbuck: 'Cause I know how it hurts/when you lose the one you wanted/'cause he’s taken you for granted/and everything you had got destroyed
Ring The Alarm - Six: I been through this too long/but I’ll be damned if I see another chick on your arm
Mine - Lee/Starbuck: Let’s stop holding back on this and let’s get carried away
Run The World (Girls) - Laura Roslin: My persuasion can build a nation/endless power, with our love we can devour
(Like half the credit for this goes to alishalevin)

I’m pretty proud of Irreplaceable, guys.

For Shoshanna, or, All my life I want money and power

a found poem from Taylor Swift’s Rolling Stone cover story

(previously)

I moved to New York
and every day was a struggle
forget making plans for life
we were just trying to make it to next week

if you’re not in love New York is like
this blazing bonfire and no one is in control
be afraid of it because it’s so powerful
stand near it because it makes you brighter

if you’re not in love…
it’s not that I’ve sworn off love
but I don’t have the energy
I’m realistic about this

(I have to stop myself
from thinking about how
many aspects of being happy
I don’t understand)

I can’t be ungrateful
I chose this
but sometimes – sometimes – I want to
walk around naked with my windows open
