2019 Resolution: Get Out More!

I had a whim today. Well, really, it was because I saw this Time Out New York article on my Facebook timeline: talkin’ bout the 50 places you should visit in New York City. I’ll get the waiting out of the way: I’ve been to 33/50 of them. Not bad![…]

Three New Favorite Podcasts

    Broken Harts is a true crime podcast from Glamour magazine that follows one singular case: the case of the Hart family. In short, this was the case where two (white) women adopted two families of three (black) children and all (?) of them died when the head of the[…]

A Tale of Two Fyre Fest Docs

Did I Solve The EARONS / Golden State Killer Case? MAYBE!!!

First things first, let me introduce you to my absolute favorite true crime podcast: Casefile. I have listened to every. single. episode. I’m obsessed. I devoured the entire back catalog of episodes (around 70 at the time I started listening) at work, often when I was alone in the adjacent[…]

The L Train Is SAVED!! Maybe.

We’ve been dreading it. Planning around it. Making forced gallows-humor jokes about it. And now… Well, in a bizarrely unilateral move, Gov. (ptooey!) Cuomo announced that there would be no L train shutdown.  Couldn’t have said it any better myself, cryptically ominous subway tile graffiti. In a totally “everything means nothing” move, that bitter pill[…]

Currently… in January 2019

FEELING:  Ahem, WordPress. Annoyed at this weird change? I legiterally have no idea what I’m doing, I just pray to sweet Satan that this post makes it out of the gates in readable format. Um, I’m okay. Feeling my grip on sanity loosen ever-so-slightly now that I’m not working regularly, and[…]
