Happy Black History Month, everyone! Here’s how you can help shut down the ignorant haters, just like John Boyega, or celebrate with the rest of the internet.
Here’s where I admit that I’ve never really listened to podcasts. But now I need something to keep me awake while doing some tedious data entry at work, and I need a break from listening to the same Pandora stations and Spotify playlists over and over.
You’re about to get mooned (by the actual moon’s backside) and flashed (by Lenny Kravitz). Also, don’t mess with armadillos or walruses. They aren’t having it.
I’m trying to get better about how I consume media. There are enough movies and TV options being churned out that those alone can take entire lifetimes to fill. Since I have a commute that is over an hour long, I try to look for new music and/or podcasts to fill this time but then […]
Lots of interesting reads this week, but let’s start with the news everyone’s talking about:
We have another video heavy article this week. Let’s get to it!

What can I say about this week other than it was electric?
Fire up your favorite web clipper because I read so much cool stuff this past week.

Are you ready for some misogyny? Yeah, me neither. But if we must… read on for an update on the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, to see why Jezebel made my list of terrible people, and for a healthy dose of venting courtesy of our friends at Pajiba. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
This week, I attended an academic conference in which someone addressed the topic of mass incarceration of black women, a topic that ladyblogland has talked about for years. It makes you think: there’s a lot of good work being done here in ladyblogland. With that in mind, let’s see what the bloggers talked about this week.
