I was OBSESSED with Under the Blacklight for a hot minute. Love me some Jenny Lewis. I also know all about listening to music or reading books because people tell you that you should like them. It's helpful in that it gets you out of your comfort zone, but the best part about becoming an adult is recognizing that it's okay to like what you like, even when it's not super hip.
LOVED this. Accidental rectal exams = maximum awkward.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
@alexah THIS. I third this!
AHP! I am excited to read whatever you write wherever you write it. So I will awkwardly continue to internet stalk you even when you move to Buzzfeed. I really enjoyed the JLaw piece that you wrote for them, and I look forward to you writing more amazing things! Congratulations on this HUGE LEAP. I have every faith this will work out beautifully for you.
This was wonderful. Thank you for sharing something so intimate.
I feel like your birthday parties would be extra fun because they would be Halloween parties and everyone loves those! Great story :).
I liked Fiona before Extraordinary Machine, but it was really that [unreleased] album that made me love her. This album lives in the same special place in my heart that The Postal Service's Give Up, Garden State's soundtrack, and Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to the Head - all of that wonderful music of 10 years ago.
On Lorde talks online "cleanliness," subtweeting and new luxuries ("I'm gonna buy a double bed. I'm just gonna do that")
I HEART HER SO HARD.
ALL OF THIS. YES.
