On Remembering Lilith: Fiona Apple


What a cunning way to condescend
Once my lover, and now my friend

Right? Thanks for the 780 verbal score on my SATs, Fiona!

On Remembering Lilith: Fiona Apple


I was 14 when "Criminal" started playing on MTV. I used my infrequent and meager allowance to buy the CD - my first CD purchase. While I did my chores after school, I used to play it and sing along to every word at maximum volume (much to my little brother's chagrin).

I still know all the words and I still sing along to all those songs and they're still as moving as they were 15 years ago.

On Specific Mini-Playlist: Say My Name Three Times

Got that Cyril Hahn remix on repeat. Now I just wish it was on Spotify or iTunes or something.

@sophia_h I love Vonnegut.

On Will You Invite Last-Timers to Your Wedding?

@enic Unless each guest costs ~your parents~ more than the gift. It's like selling the books your parents bought you for college courses for cold, hard, beer money.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

Maybe we (especially as women) should get over this fear of being called a "Child-Hater" as if that's some terrible thing. I mean, "Hater" is hyperbolic but obviously people who choose to be child-free *don't like kids* to some extent. What's so wrong with not liking children? Why should we have to pretend that we do?
