I LOVE ROSE AND AMANDA SO MUCH. THEY WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR PROBLEMS, FROM THE MUNDANE [ONE TIME I CALLED THEM AND SAID 'YO I'M BORED IN A CAR' AND THEY HUMORED ME] TO THE EXTREME [SEE: ‘SERIOUS GAY MAN WHO CAN’T GET MY BOYF TO COME’]. They are Philly’s answer to Dear ABBY if she were Liza Minelli and chainsmoked. Kind of? Anyway I have serious city envy that they live there and not here, they’re two of the coolest girls in the tri-state area. Enjoy and engage in their highly entertaining advice column, HOT PROBS, here. They even have an 800 number! SO BETA!
“He worked at Circuit City and sold phones at SprintPCS before he was evicted and spent some nights in his car. Then, in 1999, he had a revelation. “It was an inner voice, something that came to me that made me see the world differently,” he says. Q won’t divulge specific details, but describes the aftereffects. “When your life changes, you find yourself alone because everybody turns their back on you: family, friends. I would cry in bed. I was scared.” When pressed for details, he adds to the mystery by alluding to supernatural forces. He suggests watching The Knowing, a 2009 sci-fi movie with Nicolas Cage where the earth is engulfed in solar flares and beings called “The Strangers” whisk children away in flying vessels. “All I can say is that we’re not alone,” Q says.”—
When my good friend, Desiree Godsell, asked me to be apart of her second installment of ‘The Pearl’, I immediately said yes, even before I knew what it was. We’ve worked together on Hoes Come Out At Night and Night Or Day video, and I simply adore creating with Desi, so I knew that it would be a…
This chick texts me this morning like ‘OH BY THE WAY I WROTE A SHORT MUSICAL AND I’M PERFORMING IT TONIGHT IF YOU’RE FREE.’ um first of all, WHUTTTTTT, ‘by the way’ you wrote a short musical? second of all, i was coughing so hard i actually puked this morning, in a brilliant case of bronchial madness i believe i contracted from my loving boyfriend. sweet. so i missed everything in life today, but Tiombe says they’re performing this more than once. CHECK FOR IT. Disclosing that she is my friend, I wanna say she’s incredibly gifted and awesome. Plus the aforementioned Desiree Godsell is a great choreographer and former backup dancer for many of yr fave foxy folx including Santigold [she was one of the glasses-wearing robot girls in the early days], Amanda Blank and Major Lazer.

THIS IS BEST THING IN LIFE EVER. AND, UNFORTUNATELY SO RELEVANT! both in the fact that our reproductive rights are endangered again, and that tangerine and pink are hot colors for spring. girl shit, y’all.
Here is something I wrote in a frenzy last night after falling under the spell of the Weeknd. It’s dead-eyed, sure, but hypnotic stuff. BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
This means Sean and I were writing about the Weeknd at THE EXACT SAME FUCKING TIME — mine was scribbled in a post-plane fury at stupid wee hours — only he stunted on me with this one. Still, read mine anyway, because it is the second best/smartest thing you will ever read about this band [unless one or both of us decides to write about The Weeknd again].
During times when disaster strikes, there have been past occurrences of rape crimes being committed and women were deceived through words like “I will let you use a bath” or “I will let you use a toilet.” People who are migrating and doing things like trying to find refuge and going around by foot, if you can, please don’t go alone as much as possible. And somehow or other, please be careful.
Side note: 「お風呂を貸す」「トイレを貸す」is more accurately “I will lend you a bath” or “I will lend you a toilet”, for another translation. and again please let me know if i missed something.
no one should have to worry about this shit. natural disasters are fucking NATURAL, as awful as they are — rape, however, is a DECISION. earthquakes and tsunami will happen but people can DECIDE not to rape.
