Best Linocut Inks for Block Printing on Paper and Fabric — Linocut Prints | Block Printing Techniques | Recommendations for Lino Tools and Supplies by Boarding All Rows
Winner - Caligo Safe Wash Relief Ink

Hands down the best overall ink on the market for lino printing, in my opinion. It's the ink that I've gone back to time and time again over the years. It has all the benefits of traditional oil-based ink but because of its special formulation, it comes without the cleanup hassle. Here's how to clean your inked brayer. Hold the brayer over the sink and squirt a fair amount of dish soap on it (no water, yet!) and rub it all around until the ink is completely coated with soap. Then rinse it all under warm water, rubbing it off with your hands. Done. Let it dry.

The Socialist Case for Gun Control
The argument, made by some that gun control must be opposed because the criminal justice system is irremediably racist, is untenable. It has been argued that the implementation of laws governing sexual assault and domestic abuse are often racialized. Yet few make the case that the state should therefore no longer criminalize sexual assault. The anti-gun-control position assumes that because the racism of the criminal justice system is immutable, it trumps all possible gains of gun legislation. But if its advocates wouldn’t make the same argument about homicide, sexual assault, robbery, etc., the argument is inconsistent. If in the cases of those laws, the answer is to challenge racist implementation, rather than the laws themselves, the same holds true for gun control laws.

Given the history of racialized policing, the call for unarmed police, especially for police on patrol, is certainly one progressives should push. Countries like the United Kingdom, Norway, and New Zealand offer successful instances of the practice. Linking this demand to a wider call for gun control is one way to get it into popular consciousness.

All That's Solid Melts Into Airports -
This all might sound preposterous: my class spent a full week on this article. I tell my students the point of such an exercise—well, it isn’t an exercise at all—is to slow down and read closely what we are not supposed to. This sort of article is intended for quick digestion and internalization. But I’m showing my students how to stick with something that asks to be disposed of quickly. I’ve stuck with airports and air travel for over fifteen years now—writing, thinking, teaching, critiquing—and I’m more intrigued and baffled by these spaces than ever. We know that commercial airlines are unflappable about their reliance on a strict class system: they brazenly calls certain people “Elite” while relegating others to “Economy”—a not so subtle dig at the true base of this whole enterprise. But when we project this normalized state of affairs out into the near future, what do we see?

Airports of the future? Sure, makes total sense. Common sense. But airports as animate, appetitive agents who feed off the paltry incomes of petit bourgeoisies, only to metastasize and grow larger and larger, biometric scanning bodies who read and consume people, only in order to grow their own tumorous tendrils and limbs? Jetways extending upon jetways, shop-laden terminals leading to nowhere while operating like gigantic ATMs? What Ozymandian future are we building? Is this the future we will choose, as the makers of airplanes and airports? It doesn’t have to be. But for it not to be, we need to acknowledge our complicity in this, and disentangle the strong threads of capitalist fantasy woven around our airports as they are, and as we plod forward into our as yet uncertain future, as a very real species partaking in evolution on this planet that is, itself, airborne.
