After my swift departure from Corporate America a few months ago, I found myself at a loss. Not so much a loss for the consistent paycheck I continually wasted on frivolous travel or the much-needed health benefits for “regular checkups”, but the notion I would never find a place or group of people who felt the same way I did about the word fuck. I have been blogging for three years, but only recently started taking it more seriously and actually seeing the effects in my bank account. Read More

Beautiful, eerie, and a little sultry, Agent Ribbons' video for "That's Not Edgar's Heart" is absolutely mesmerizing. Dressed in vintage party dresses and fascinators, these ladies have created unforgettable imagery for this moody song. With lyrics like "my voice will turn the smoke and tell you I love you while you sleep" it's impossible not to fall in love. Read More
In the 1993 documentary Ragga Gyal D'bout! three ladies explain why raggamuffin music is important to them. One of the ladies explains, “It tells you how good you look, how glamorous and beautiful you look. I love it, because if I as a black women was to wait for the wider media to actually portray me in a beautiful and positive light, I’d be old and gray.” A subgenre of dancehall music, ragga blends electronic music and sampling together.

The New York Times has just announced that the new executive editor will be Jill Abramson, the very first woman to be executive editor at the Times. It is crazy to think that we are still experiencing these kinds of firsts for women in North America. That’s what I think of whenever I hear an ill-informed individual say things like “Why is feminism still around anyway? Women are like, equal now.” Well like equal isn’t good enough. Read More
Erika M. Anderson, formerly of the drone-y indie band Gowns, has always sounded like she has some kind of demon inside her that she absolutely needs to exorcise. On Past Life Martyred Saints (Souterrain Transmissions), her debut album as EMA, Anderson sounds close to the brink on nearly every song, like PJ Harvey’s goth cousin or an early Courtney Love. Opening track “The Grey Ship” begins with Anderson singing over quiet acoustic guitar and soft drums, until she abruptly silences the arrangement with fuzzed-out bass and distorted synth lines.

Summer may not have officially started yet, but the summer heat is HERE. I spent this past weekend with my sweaty skin sticking to subway seats, leather couches, and my boyfriend. I probably spent most of my time peeling myself off of things.  I am not made for this kind of heat. It's clearly  here to make me suffer. Getting into cars that have been baking out in the sun in 90 degree weather? It's THE WORST. Almost as bad as trying to fall asleep in a room with a window that refuses to open, and a broken fan. Waking up in that kind of torture chamber is almost nearly impossible. Read More
I don’t know about you, but every time I go to a tea party and a fight breaks out I just find myself totally unprepared. Luckily, one clever Etsy shop owner has created a solution to this age-old problem by creating brass knuckles made out of a recycled piece of Johnson Brothers china. Juliet Ames of Baltimore’s The Broken Plate Pendant Co. has crafted a very pretty china hand-piece that is the standard size of brass knuckles, 4 1/2 ” wide and 2 1/4" tall. Read More
