I want to point out a couple of items of interest today:
Listen: Angel Podcast
Jordan Ginsberg at BME has written a review of The Piercing Bible, and interviewed Elayne Angel in podcast format. The podcast is kinda long, but worth listening to. Angel talks about the book, about Katrina and moving to Mexico, and most interesting to me, a lot about modern body piercing history. You can find all this at BME here: Elayne Angel Podcast and Book Review.
Donate: BME Scholarship
Speaking of BME, they are urgently seeking donations–even of $10–for the college scholarship they give to one deserving member, based on essay submissions. Times are tough, of course, and always pretty tough for college students, but this is a worthy cause. Here’s a message from the scholarship administrator:
I’m sending you this message because right now, the BME Scholarship Fund really needs your help. With two months to go before we award the scholarship, we have $109.58 sitting in our account. Several people who have given us a lot of help in the past have agreed to donate again this year, but even with their support we’re still going to come up short.
We need your help.
If you can help out with even a $10US or $20US donation, or become a major donor for $25US or more, it would go a long way to help us help a bright, hardworking college student make their dreams a reality. In addition, those who give $25US or more to the BME Scholarship Fund will also have the opportunity to help us read all the essays, judge the applicants, and help us select this year’s winner.
You can find out all about it, and make your donation, at www.BMEScholarship.com.
ETA: Okay, I donated $25. Paypal makes it easy. How about you?
