    Death Becomes Her

    Death Becomes Her

    This week Heaven discusses the fascination we have with dead women. Dead women in media are often represented as beautiful in their tragic demise, a symbol of there is a small window of time women are considered useful and beautiful until they begin to age. A dead woman also shows how we have control over women's bodies, how we disregard their thoughts and opinions and forget to see them as human beings but rather objects to admire. A dead woman's corpse can also be used to sell beauty products as a way to stay attractive to adhere to an impossible beauty standard.

    Continuing the discussion about Feminized labor, Heaven discusses Invisible Labor and The Second Shift that is often times left to women to do. This type of labor is undervalued since there is no paycheck attributed with doing household labor. Heaven revisits Gemma Hartley's essay, "Women Aren't Nags--We're Just Fed Up" when discussing Invisible Labor, as well as references a classic I LOVE LUCY episode that acknowledges Invisible Labor.

    This week Heaven discusses the phrase Emotional Labor--what the actual definition of it is, the type of jobs that require a heavy use of Emotional Labor, the misuse of the word, how the definition has changed, and whether or not the misuse of the word will have a lasting impact on the Labor Movement.

    WE ARE THE MEDIA

    WE ARE THE MEDIA

    In this episode, Heaven discusses controversial indie musician Amanda Palmer and how despite her controversies, she has managed to make an imprint in our current culture through her success at crowdfunding, putting crowdsourcing sites as Patreon, on the map. Through her successful Kickstarter in 2012, raising over a million dollars to make her album, "Theatre Is Evil", she has shaved a path for creators to have a closer relationship to their fans and cut out corporations in the business of making art.

    Heaven also delves in Palmer's White Feminism and the Socialist aspects of how Palmer creates and distributes her music using a pay-what-you-want model, following Marxist ideology "Each according to their ability, each according to their need".

    Finally, Heaven discusses some of her more prominent controversies, such as not paying touring musicians, a badly written poem, and some tracks that have not aged well over time due to content and use of the N-word.

    It's a nuanced discussion about a very complicated woman.
