I’m working within my art form. It’s that simple. I work within the rules and limitations of it… It’s called songwriting. It has to do with melody and rhythm, and then after that, anything goes. You make everything yours. We all do it.

This makes me miss the 90s even more than I already do. Alas, feminism is now the “f” word of popular culture.

I have this Rolling Stone from 1997. I’ve had it since 1997, which means I’ve kept it for some reason, but I really couldn’t tell you why. Do you know how many places I’ve lived, how many times I’ve moved since 1997? Fifteen.
I opened this over the summer, when I was in the process of packing (again) and moving all of my stuff to Wisconsin. I was struck by two things: That a mainstream magazine dedicated an entire, pretty diverse issue to women in the music industry, and that they included interviews that asked them direct questions about feminism.
I think it sucks that you wouldn’t see something like this from a mainstream magazine today.
So I’ve scanned in some of the pictures, and I’m going to post my favorite quotes from the articles. Sure, it’s Rolling Stone. There’s not a lot of room here for riot grrls or punk, even though they’re mentioned in smaller articles. But they are mentioned.
It’s a nice reminder that this happened once, and could maybe happen again.
It was so fucking nice to be a teenage feminist in the 90s.

I just sit in a room and the writers sit around me, and I make different faces, and they go, ‘That looks like incredulity mixed with ennui -I like where you’re going with it, but it’s not ready.’

-Jon Stewart, yacking about how The Daily Show gets made in a new video on RollingStone.com.
