Happy Thanksgiving, Fangirls! Today I’d like to give thanks for my amazing family, phenomenal friends, and rad as heck boyfriend. A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting said boyfriend’s parents, and I got super freaked out because first impressions are so important, and I can never visit someone empty handed. My go-to for first visit gifts tends to be food, but his mother is gluten free, and he is allergic to everything under the sun! I originally tried making gluten free Pizzelles, but that was a disaster and a half, so I went to Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck. In it, Ms Lopez writes about how she has a princess tummy that doesn’t like gluten or dairy, so I figured it may be a good place to start. I was incredibly right. Lopez had a ton of recipes in there, but most had chocolate or nuts (allergy king would not be able to eat those). Luckily, there is a recipe for Sassy Pumpkin Muffins that was free of nuts, chocolate, and gluten (heck, there’s no dairy either)!
It’s been about five years since I was introduced to Team Starkid and ever since I have supported the actors on their other ventures outside of their musical productions. Recently Joey Richter (Ron Wesley in the Very Potter Musicals) announced that he would be in in a Nickelodeon made for TV movie Genie in a Bikini and the other day I finally got around to watching it in full.
Fangirls, Starkid’s latest musical was released on November 1st. If you haven’t seen it, you should probably do that right now.
Okay, I hope you watched it. If not, don’t worry; there are no spoilers here.
Fangirls, I hope it’s not too graphic to say that I’ve been moaning in pleasure since this album came out on the 30th.
Hey Fangirls. Today’s villain isn’t so much one in a physical sense, but emotional. Depression is something I’ve dealt with my whole life. I can not speak for everyone; this will be about how I experience depression. Everyone experiences and deals with depression differently.
In this article, I will talk about my experiences with depression. If you are triggered by self harm, suicide, or anything to do with depression, please do not read further.
Hey Fangirls! A couple weeks back I was lucky enough to go to Special Edition: NYC and meet some absolutely lovely independent creators. I think independent creators are some of the most amazing and inspiring people on the planet. They make what they love, and to me, that’s beautiful. Two of the individuals I met at SE:NYC were David Phillips and Sarah Braly. Let me tell you, Fangirls, these folks really know how to catch an eye. In a sea of grey and blue tables, their’s was neon green. It was littered in lovely yet despicable cupcakes, and had some really intriguing comics on top. So when my friends were looking for back issues that I wasn’t concerned with, I sneaked off to the High Fructose Zombies table.
Fangirls! Earlier this week I whipped up the perfect snack to celebrate one of the new musicals in Starkid’s summer season, the Trail to Oregon. The story follows a young boy who gets sucked back in time to the Oregon Trail, and things get silly. The show begins July 3rd, but I’ve got just the thing to hold our appetites over until then.
