Episode 5 - Oh, My Virgin Eyes!

Thank you to Stitch It and The Manic Purl for playing my promo!

I read Fanny Hill by John Cleland, which has a long and sordid history. It falls into the ranks of mid-18th century novels such as Pamela and Clarissa by Samuel Richardson and Tom Jones by Henry Fielding. Here are some links to the censorship history of the book:

Memoirs v. Massachusetts
Roth Standard of Obscenity
Miller Standard of Obscenity

I went to see Watchmen last week. It was great, and Alan Moore is my favorite brand of crazy. I've also been watching Gossip Girl - shocking! I love it. And then there was The Manchurian Candidate, #67 on the AFI's list of 100 Greatest Films of All Time.

I forgot to mention the Bobbin's Nest soiree last week!

Some podcasts have changed feeds:
Stitch It!
Bark 'n' Knit (forgot to mention her in the podcast, but Gnat did really switch feeds!)

TheSheepGeek is holding a raffle to support her kitty's vet bills.

I finished my Limeade socks! I also worked on my Scarf #21, Girasole, Mysterious Mirror socks, and a Spiderman Blanket.
