All hail OITNB

After a recent binge and a more recent annoying comment, I decided to be a cheerleader for Orange is the New Black, by bringing an appreciation post to my blog. The annoying comment sparked the kind of annoyance that makes your eyes roll so much they go right into the back of your head, and…

Can you Sia?

I am a Sia fan. Her songs are absolute belters and what self confessed shower singer can’t resist that? I had heard her songs a long time before I was aware that it was the woman who hid her face with a mammoth wig. I remember first seeing her come out to perform live on…

Star Wars SOS

CALLING ALL STAR WARS LOVERS SIGNIFICANT OTHERS… So does this seem familiar? You’ve watched it, you get it, but you’re not a super fan.

What does Feminism mean to you… A new blog, for starters.

Back in October a friend told me about Joseph Gordon Levitt’s request on his site, HitRecord, to submit posts about what Feminism means to you, wanting to know why people chose to either identify as Feminist or not.
