America Elected A Bigot. Now What?

Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by the electoral college.

The election (aka the beginning of this particularly depressing dystopian novel that we’re all currently living in) (jk!) (kinda.) was weeks ago. Since then, I’ve gone through my stages. I’ve felt hopeless, I’ve done the anger thing, I’ve pointed fingers, but you know what? It’s time to move on. Continue reading “America Elected A Bigot. Now What?”

Did The Walking Dead Go Too Far This Time?

If you’re one of the 5 billionty people on this Earth obsessed with The Walking Dead, then you’re probably still reeling from last night’s episode. ‘How dare they do this to us?’ you probably thought. ‘I have work in the morning, you thoughtless bastards!’

A lot of crazy shit  went down. And there’s a lot to talk about, not just when it comes to what actually happened on the show, but what lead up to it, and the advertising that’s been shoved down our throats for the last 7 months.

So, let’s talk.

What To Do When You’ve Lost Your Inspiration

Here’s the scenario: you’re sitting on your bed in your least favorite, ugly ass pajamas. You have no desire to actually write or create (you know, what you thought was your whole purpose in life), opting instead to feel like shit about your lack of productivity. You scroll through your Facebook feed, feeling like garbage made sentient as you watch your peers succeed in life and be passionate about various things and go on dates and shit.

There’s A Movie About The Nat Turner Slave Revolt And I’m So Psyched

I am so glad that actors like Nate Parker exist.

You’ll probably remember him for his roles in movies like “Beyond The Lights” and “The Great Debaters” but in my mind, he’s now the person we have to thank for there being a feature film about the Nat Turner slave revolt.
