when she talks, I hear the revolution / in her hips, there's revolution

Birthday gift for Stina.

I like this quote 'cause I think it's important to remember that the revolutionary struggle isn't some macho war ideal, it's life. It's the everyday choices we make, the choice to fight back, stand up and take control in ways that can differ a lot from time to time, situation to situation and person to person.

And I don't mean that in some sort of neo-liberal "anything goes!" way, but more in a "don't put yourself down 'cause you're not doing enough, look at the things you do, the choices you make & feel proud of them" way.

Edit: Sorry for sounding like a stupid self help book. Will do better in the future.

you would never sell out / just like I did in playboy / that was art, it didn't count

I forgot to post this x-stitch that I made before Christmas. Once again it was my professor (who also bought this one) that wanted a gift for someone where she works, so now it hangs in the office of RFSU (the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education).

Apparently the guy who got it likes electronic music a lot, so I thought it would be nice to mix the sort of modern feeling of electronica with the old school Hungarian pattern.
