We all hoped he’d be immortal on Earth, but alas, David Bowie returned to the universe this week.
Love them or hate them, end-of-the-year roundups are now just an essential part of December. Everything that we can rank the best of, will be ranked and then vehemently disagreed with in the comment sections.
Hello, unicorns! I’ve been full of piss and vinegar regarding the GOP and anti-choice activists this week, but there are lots of science and entertainment stories I’d like to cover here too. Let’s get started:
I can hear a good or not-so-good tune and it transports me back to a time and place when it became important to me. I have a knack for strong memories tied to songs.
Local punk favorites Wimps released their latest record, an EP entitled Super Me, this month available on cassette and digital download. This release spurred me creating a whole Spotify playlist featuring local bands, all of them featuring women. Seattle seems to be the hotbed of awesome music lately beyond your Death Cabs.
My love of Seattle is pretty well known. My love of vinyl is definitely known. One of my LinkedIn talents is crate digging, I swear. Seattle has some amazing record stores. In fact, I have a hard time going to other cities and not comparing their stores to Seattle. My favorite record store in Seattle […]
Presenting the Mad Libs of police brutality, and by mad, I mean “utter madness:” Police in [LOCATION] shot and killed [PoC NAME] after [MINOR CRIME]. At least I also have a few good stories in this week’s newsy roundup. Let’s get started.

May 18th marked the 35th anniversary of Ian Curtis’s death. Joy Division is a band that has influenced many of my favorite musicians, and one I have at least started to explore on its own.
We have another video heavy article this week. Let’s get to it!
I really enjoyed my first High Fives, so I wanted to bring it back. I found an excellent person to interview in my good friend Kara Tucker. She and I have very similar musical tastes especially in our love of Sleater-Kinney, the Beatles, Against Me!, and the Beach Boys.
I had the pleasure to discuss music with one of my favorite people in the world, our own Sara Habein. We know how much I love lists and rankings, and it seems that having a discussion about music and adding rankings to things is right up my alley. I had so much fun having a little […]
2014 was kind of shit to a lot of people, me included. While there were some high points, it seemed like 2014 just messed a lot of things up for plenty of people. It felt like a whole year of upheaval. The end of 2014 was especially triggering for me; not only did I feel […]
