Every woman has one. Not what you’re thinking that too, yes, but I am referring to a menstruation horror story. In addition to the aforementioned books, there is “Period: The End of Menstruation,” filmmaker Giovanna Chesler’s documentary response “to the growing number of hormone treatments that promise to end the monthly bleed altogether.” (The health consequences of taking Seasonique and Lybrel, birth control pills that limit menstruation or suppress it completely, remain a topic of debate.) There are the monthly cycle celebrants who, unlike the hippies of the ’70s with their red tents and moon tides, their talk of “transitions” and “honoring your changes” are said to be punk style anarchists (menarchists?) who dress up as bloody tampons and holler rogue cheers: “Smear it on your face and rub it on your body, it’s time to start a menstrual party!” Artist Chella Quint publishes a zine, “Adventures in Menstruating,” which features DIY tampon projects and the requisite “leakage horror stories.” And another artist, Ingrid Berthon Moine, has made a video in which she is “twanging her tampon string” to the tune “Slave to the Rhythm,” an apt theme song if ever there was one.

On quick note about the popcorn. I buy it locally for as cheap as I can find it. If it is more convenient for you to buy popcorn on Amazon, I recommend the bulk popcorn sold by Paragon (which I’ve tried and is great) or Great Northern. My favorite thing on the menu is the wild boar benedict, with eggs soft boiled in their shells, perfect spheres teetering on top of a big pile of grilled bitter greens and pork cooked in its own fat until it collapses into confit crispiness. Underneath, instead of your typical English muffin, is a hockey puck of fried yucca mash. The clean, potato chip taste is a stoner’s dream a potato chip you can make a meal out of all topped with a creamy sauce and served with pickled red onions on the side..
