Defining Albums

I've got this top five albums that I carry around in my heart. They aren't necessarily my top five desert island albums or the top five albums I think are the pinnacle of what music should be. These are if, say, I needed to explain to someone how the fuck I got this way without… Continue reading Defining Albums

Eulogy

In Billy Joel's Master Class, he tells the story of explaining to his young daughter what death is. He told her that people never really die, they never really go away. Instead, when you die you go into other people's hearts, and they take you on their journeys. In this way, no one ever really… Continue reading Eulogy

The Sportball We

I love language. The trivialities of linguistics, the odd words we use, how simple semantics can change entire meanings, dialects, colloquialisms: it's all awesome (except, I admit, there are some accents that I hate, but that's a whole other thing).

If I'm paying enough attention then… Continue reading Good Media

There's something particularly Christmas-y about getting… Continue reading Blogmas: A Show

Let's do a creative exercise, shall we? This is a game I like to play with Husband on occasion, but I've elaborated here a lot. You don't have to post your answers, but by god would I love it if you did. Tell me about yourself. Not current dimensional timeline you. Tell me about you… Continue reading A Question For You (seriously, please comment)

Nothing In Between

I unabashedly label myself a feminist. I’ve experienced some terrible treatment due to my gender, including when I was pretty young, but I know I’ve grown up in what is historically one of the best countries/times for women, so I’ve been wondering how I became so passionate. Injustice has always bothered me, and there’s never really… Continue reading Nothing In Between
