sperm:widgets

A few years ago I attended a talk on women's wellness in which the speaker referred to the idea that in our male-dominated society, work quality/style is considered superior when the work is cranked out regularly (in the way that men produce sperm all day long), whereas a feminine perspective would be more cyclical (as in the menstrual cycle), with production of work involving periods of contemplation/incubation and rest and less volume of production. Does anyone know the origin or source for this concept? I don't think it was the speaker's original idea. [more inside]

Female stage presence at the piano

Help me find video clips of female jazz pianists with stage presence! I'm looking for moments where the camera captures the stage presence of jazz ladies at the piano, their entrance, how they carry themselves, their hands on the keys, their interaction with their band-members, their final bow, everything. Thank you. [more inside]

Badass female characters needed.

The two most compelling female action characters I've seen are Hanna and Nikita (the original French movie one). The Mass Effect series does 'female badass' pretty well, and so too does George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones et al.). Peter Watts is good at profoundly damaged female badasses. What other movies, games, books, and TV shows would I like that feature well-written female badasses?

What advice would you give to a young female STEM graduate?

What advice would you give to a young female STEM graduate? I have eleven years experience. I graduated from a STEM program in 2000 and recently received my MS degree also in a STEM field. Five years of my experience were in industry, the last six are in a research lab in academia. I am not a student, I am a regular employee of the university. My MS degree came from another university. During these six years I have never seen sexism like I have seen it here. It is anticipated my current place of employment will no longer be because our funding will cease. We are all looking for jobs. [more inside]

Help me identify this song... Pet Sounds + Joni Mitchell = ?

Help me find a song! It was on Sirius radio on July 23, between 10am and 3pm mountain time. It was a female singer singing over what sounded like a very Pet Sounds-like arrangement. She sounded like Joni Mitchell to me. (Maybe it was Joni Mitchell!) The song also sounded very familiar. I thought it was Both Siders, Now, but I listened to that song again and that's just guitar. This song sounded just a little more upbeat, more poppy, but equally as beautiful. Any ideas?

NPRfilter: Female singer (from the 50s?) mentioned on NPR in the last week. She was characterized by the music critic as never overdoing vocal tricks, sining minimally and "just the right amount".
