Hey cutie pies!

I am in Orlando for Disney park-hopping and Playlist Live this week, so my blog posts are gonna be pretty darn sparse. I think the two photos above sum up my week so far: amazing fireworks displays and overindulging on the sweets. 

If you’re coming to Playlist Live, totally check out the panel I’m speaking on Sunday at 11:30 about the gender gap issue facing the platform. It’s a great group of people and should be an enlightening chat. 

There should be at least one video coming, and a bunch more collabs, so hold tight. Wish I could bring you all here with me!

Hugs and kisses from down here at the Mouse!

Yeah. This. I’m drinking around the world at Epcot. I can’t feel face.

So my buddy at work was looking over his okcupid profile, and enlisted my help in responding to a girl. I wrote up something witty that might inspire her to put on pants and brave the cold to meet him for a drink.

We then got onto my account so I could show him all the weird messages I get. I go to the second page of messages, and he’s like “OMG I MESSAGED YOU?!”

He hit on me before I even worked here. Best. Ever.

Even better, I didn’t respond. HA!

Two slam poets with Brave New Voices deliver this fearless indictment of hipster cultural appropriation and all its collateral damage. 


Lol seriously though why does this not have more notes?! I can’t even pick my favorite part. It’s amazing, and flawless, and just… yes.

“Acting like you’re down because you say “fuck the system,” but in the same breathe are quick to gentrify the hell out of my hood.”

“Is that racist? Yes, that is. And we don’t mean to offend you by calling you racist; we know that according to you, we’re all part of the universe. But you have a tendency to treat animals better than humans.”

“We don’t need to hear your feelings about our issues. “To be fair, as a white person—-” “Nononono, shut the FUCK up.””


this is staggering

Making me want to eat it when I need to be practicing falling asleep? I would slaughter for some friggin mac n’ cheese or brownies right now.


Obama singing Al Green tonight in NYC? We submit that we are charmed.

Can we talk about how he sounded great too? This is a real man.
