This was wonderful. Jia, please write more eviscerations of shitty pop songs!

On Interview with a Santeria Priestess

This was so interesting! Thanks to you both, I learned a lot. The song is pretty much the only other exposure I've ever had to Santeria/Lucumi, so it was super excellent to learn more.

On Get These White Boys Out My Children's Books

Anyone have any good kids' book recs? I'm newly an aunt and want to cultivate my mini-feminist niece even though she can't talk yet.

On Writing, Depression and Learning How to Handle Attention: A Conversation with Allie Brosh

I love Allie Brosh and Hyperbole and a Half so, so, so much. I got the book and it is obviously amazing but WHERE IS THE ALOT.

@ipomoea That is so great! I liked Hortense a lot. I will now go read all her stuff from Rookie!

@mystique It's definitely odd to realize how much of a website like this is actually down to the editor -- maybe Edith is the 'Pin and the 'Pin is Edith. But it's also the commenters -- I finally found a full-time job a few months ago and I haven't been able to comment much, not like I ever did. But I just looked at the front page and only 6 of the 14 posts have double-digit numbers of comments, which seems sad. (Although also, no email notifications is a real drag and probably some part of it.)

I'm not ready to give up yet because there are still a lot of things I like....change is just hard! @mystique, I agree that I'd rather read personal essays about newsy topics rather than link roundups, but I recognize that it's tough to find all those writers and edit all those essays. I dunno, things are definitely changing around here but it makes me sad that people are being so negative. Maybe we should all write some personal essays and send them in.

@Onymous That's a good idea, but I worry that I'd take them home to wash them and forget to bring them back? I don't know why the idea of not washing the slippers seems better, though. That's an odd question. Maybe I'll try the socks before I commit to a pair of slippers!

@polka dots vs stripes ooh those look nice! I hadn't thought of LL Bean!
