Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Very honest and beautiful post, as usual.

We want pictures!... Er, probably too late for that if you didn't bring a ditgital camera, but it would be cool if you could get some from somebody.



"Rawkah" is "ROCKER" with a Boston accent.


Yeah, I thought she was saying she was a T-rocker, and bragging about it. Not just the fact, but the act . Never mind.


I feel safe in saying that "thick Boston accent" is a redundancy.

NY sounds great but for the best Pride Parade in this hemisphere (and arguably beyond) you shoulda been in Toronto this past weekend. (Actually Pride Week lasts, duh, all week here.) The Toronto Blue Jays held a special Pride Night on Friday, the Dyke March was Satruday, the Pride Parade on Sunday. In all it attracted a million people. This is the only city, at least in Canada, where the Chief of Police and Mayor didn't just come to the parade - they marched in it. Way cool, eh?


Toronto I'm sure was a blast, and I've also heard Montreal is one of the best's in late July or early August, so doesn't clash with most cities' home Pride lots of people go from all over.

I think one of the biggest advantages of the Canadian ones is that unlike in America, they're not so worried about political correctness and de-gaying as much of the event as possible to cater to the enforced-conformist Log Cabin contingent.

To give you an idea, the Los Angeles gay pride event was taken over a few years back by a more conservative group, who engineered a fight with the adult content vendors. Result - last year & this year, the adult section was about 1/5th the size that it used to be, attendance was down, and many of my friends referred to the event as "lame." In addition, corporate booths prospered, so that it felt like you were walking through TVland being bombarded with ads.

Oh well...I can't wait til America swings its way out of the 50's June & Ward mentality we're in now & moves back into the 60's ;)


I can wait. (For a third alternative, preferably. I'm sick of June and Ward AND Al Goldstein and Wavy Gravy.)


Been to the Toronto Dyke March and Beer Garden ... yummy. Montreal has great parties and activities for lesbians ... the sad thing for me is the lack of more Butch-Femme happenings in either city, what's up with that?
