I Honestly Believe That Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” Is A Magical Spell

  In a world that seems to make no sense anymore, I’ve been viewing things through a lens of magical realism. “Magical thinking,” bordering on delusion, is key to becoming a powerful sorcerer, which I am rather keen on. I

The Safety Blanket

  Did you have a “safety blanket” when you were a kid?   How about now?   I have a theory about those little things we always return to when things get tough. The favorite book we’ve read over and over,

Nothing’s Gonna Change My World

It’s December 9th, and you know what that means. It means that yesterday, I spent NINE AND A HALF HOURS in the cold singing Beatles songs with tourists and fellow fanatics alike. I joke that this is my only religious

After “Before He Cheats”

  Ext. Honkey-tonk dive bar. HE and SHE exit together, entwined. SHE is visibly tipsy and stumbling over the sidewalk, but she falls when HE drops her to the ground in shock. HE: What the hell? MY CAR! SHE: OOF!

Is This The Greatest Yodel-Based Power Ballad In The History Of The World?

Yes.   Wait, you wanted more than that? Bring it on, bring it on, I’m a dreamer.   “Yodel It!”, the Romanian entry to the Eurovision song contest, is so good that it makes me forget that I’m an American, and my

You Got Me, Babe

Ok I said it like five months ago that May was gonna be the month that Tr*mp was impeached. And y’all, it is just taking way too long. America is getting scarier and worse by the day. What am I supposed

Currently… in May 2017

FEELING:  Busy! I’m worried about my right hand, but you know something? I really handle “busy” very well. When I’m busy, I’m more motivated to get more things done. Are you that way, too? I mean, not always important things. Have you

How I Learned To Love The Beatles

I wish this story wasn’t about a boy. I sincerely do. But it’s at least a little bit about a boy. File it under doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. Sure, I’d always liked The Beatles, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I Hear Dead People: The Playlist

  If one thing doesn’t need to be said about 2016, it’s that we lost a lot of GREAT MUSICIANS. David Bowie, Prince, George Michael — I started listening to all of their songs together and realized, you know what?

LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK, but don’t say I didn’t warn ya

When do I *not* have something up my sleeve? A few days ago, I asked the Twitter and Facebook hive minds to answer the question: WHAT SONGS GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD? See, I’d been struggling with having the hook

Actually, Maybe I *Did* Peak In High School…during the Talent Show auditions, senior year

I spent a lot of time as a teenager afraid. Afraid of what other people would think of me, mostly. Also, afraid of failure. But mostly, afraid of BOTH — failing in front of my peer group while they all

How Limoncello And Rain Made Me Appreciate George Michael

What you need to know is this: the year was 2010. I was traveling Europe with my boyfriend. And I was mortally afraid of embarrassing myself. Luckily, I no longer have that fear, or this story might never be told.

You May Say I’m A Dreamer, But I’m Not The Only One

The ONLY December holiday that matters is December 8th, tbh. Every year, on the anniversary of John Lennon’s murder, strangers become family and sing around the Imagine mosaic in Strawberry Fields, across the street from where John breathed his last.

Christmas in October

  It isn’t even Halloween yet, and I’ve already made a Christmas Spotify playlist that’s over 3 hours long. And I’ve been listening to it since September. I have become that which I once hated. I’m going to be a Grinch up
