Playlist: Summer 2015

summer2015It has been nearly a year since I shared one of my current favorites playlists, Fangirls. It’s about time that changed. This summer has brought me buckets of fantastic tunes that have been playing nonstop in my car & around the house. So, I’ve reflected upon the last few months of music and what I’ve been enjoying the most, and put together a dozen of the highlights. Read More »


The A.V. Club

portland-press-herald_3278451A few years ago, admit the height of my YouTube obsession (though I’m not certain I’ve ever come down), I discovered an amazing channel along with my brother that we totally fell in love with. It’s combines the wonder of live music with the fun of covers and the thrill of incredible musicians. Though it seemed like it might have been short lived, the show is alive & kicking more than ever in it’s now sixth season. Plus, they’ve got an incredible website offering even more goodies to boot. Read More »

Batwoman #38

STK659730With only 3 issues left for me to review, things are starting to close here, Fangirls. Though, you really wouldn’t be able to tell from the comic itself.

Of course, it’s just as mind blowing, intense, and beautiful as I had imagined.

Let’s Talk About: The Sex Game Book

108638This past weekend in a bookstore adventure, I stumbled upon this brilliant book. Good books about sex are hard to find. They’re either super scientific, very silly and/or not very accurate, specifically focused on one thing, or just non existent. However, this book covers so many bases, in so many funny & informative ways, that I have to put it down because it’s so overwhelmingly good.

Ms. Marvel #10

STK655085Oh, Fangirls. I know I say it every time, but this series just gets better & better with each issue. The on point humor and incredibly real & inspiring undertones marry together in an irresistible way that is only getting better with age. 10 issues in, and I’m just as giddy at the end of every issue as I was with the first. Especially after an issue like this, one which kicks ass, takes names, and still makes you feel all warm & fuzzy.
