LCSH Watch: Week 51, December 23, 2009:
150 Beards (Islamic law) [May Subd Geog] [sp2009010056]
550 BT Islamic law
I'm assuming they mean the hair on your face, not the guy you bring home for Ramadan to convince your family that you're not a lesbian?
* 150 Cellular telephone etiquette CANCEL
(C) 150 Cell phone etiquette [May Subd Geog] [sp2002005740]
450 UF Cellular telephone etiquette [EARLIER FORM OF HEADING]
550 BT Telephone etiquette
All CELLULAR TELEPHONE headings were changed to CELL PHONE. Good on them. If only they had the power to create CELL PHONE ETIQUETTE and not just a phrase to describe it, though.
(C) 150 Cooperating teachers [May Subd Geog] [sp2009010242]
450 UF Supervising teachers (Cooperating teachers)
550 BT Teachers
This just reminds me that I heard on the radio that Mayor Bloomberg wants NYC teachers to take only a 2% raise this year instead of 4. Or he's going to cut a bunch of their jobs. First of all, I don't like his bullying threat. But also, while I don't think it's such a terrible thing to ask them to get less of a raise right now while the whole city is financially fucked, I do think it's kind of hypocritical when NYC landlords got a 3-6% raise this year. I think city raises should be tied to the increase to sign a new 2 year lease.
(C) 150 Ducks—Counting [May Subd Geog] [sp2009009713]
550 RT Duck populations—Estimates
Too bad there's no CHICKENS—COUNTING (before they're hatched).
(C) 150 Female juvenile delinquents in literature [Not Subd Geog] [sp2009009504]
Also comes in FEMALE JUVENILE DELINQUENTS—FICTION if that sort of thing appeals to you. It does to me! So far it only describes The Killing Jar by Nicola Monaghan.
150 Gay political refugees [May Subd Geog] [sp2009010044]
550 BT Political refugees
And BUTCHES and FEMMES are bibliographical refugees.
(A) 150 Marijuana in motion pictures [Not Subd Geog] [sp2009009739]
550 BT Motion pictures
I'll give you one guess warrant what the warrant might be. Close—it's a new book called Reefer Movie Madness.
155 Webisodes [Not Subd Geog] [sh2009009304]
455 UF Episodes, Web
455 UF Web episodes
555 BT Television programs
555 RT Internet videos
I have nothing against this new heading. Okay, I do (It's annoying, like "webinars," which is not an LCSH), but the real point is, how is WEBISODES all kinds of established and warranted when it's about five minutes old, and FEMMES isn't?
(A) 150 Weiss beer [May Subd Geog] [sp 85145988]
* 550 BT Beer CANCEL
* 550 BT Wheat beer
(A) 150 Wheat beer [May Subd Geog] [sp2009010438]
550 BT Beer

These terms are so much more different from each other than FAN MAGAZINES and FANZINES. Not. Head exploding.
Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:

I'm calling the ASPCA.
