Now Playing: Esmé Patterson – “Never Chase a Man”

There’s a delicate sweetness to Esmé Patterson’s gritty vocals, a fusion of undisguised emotion and lively inflections. She’s one of those artists who’s ingenuity goes largely unnoticed, but steadily accumulates a well-deserved cult following. Patterson’s 2014 record, Woman to Woman, is a unique triumph.

Agent Carter

Forgive me, Agent Carter, for I have failed you. Consider this an apology for all the years I’ve avoided you. I am so sorry. It was a mistake on my part. From the beginning, I was fully aware of your existence, I knew of the show’s critical acclaim, but I never felt the need to…

Ties

My graceful ghost dressed in lace, glitter on your face You have tied a ribbon around my soul You have conquered my heart You have made it your home That original lifeline An unbreakable bond made of melody and rhyme When my tank is empty and I have nothing left to give, I listen to…

Distraction

We’ve all been trying to find different ways to distract ourselves during this incredibly stressful time. I think we’re all reaching the point where we might permanently transform into that red square of pure impatience and fury from Inside Out if we watch anymore news or read anymore sad stories. I don’t know about you,…

Help!

Help! by The Beatles Help! I need somebody. Help! Not just anybody. Help! You know I need someone. Help! When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody’s help in any way. But now these days are gone, I’m not so self-assured. Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened…

Today, I want you to share with me something that makes you SMILE. It could be a song, a quote, a film, a photo, or even a piece of memorabilia. What is the one thing that is guaranteed to put a huge smile on your face? 😀 It may sound silly, but animals with flower…

A Technical Challenge

Every surface in my kitchen is covered in frustration and flour. So you know what that means . . . *jazz hands* Yep, I completely botched two batches of homemade cinnamon rolls last week. I suppose I should have stopped after my first failed endeavor, but what can I say? My sweet tooth was in…

Nerd News: Saying Goodbye to Supernatural (EW Exclusive)

It still blows my mind that Supernatural has been on the air for fifteen years. Although I will miss the show and my boys desperately, it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. In celebration of the show’s finale season, Entertainment Weekly has debuted a spectacular Supernatural cover-shoot. Not to mention, a fascinating…

Different

I have never fit in. I’m always out of place or out of sync. I perpetually feel like I’m on the periphery, an outsider peering in. I am an actor, trying my best to seem cool, confident, and put together. Normally shy and introverted, I frequently create alternate versions of myself to feel safe, wanted,…

Florence + The Machine “Light of Love”

“I want to close my eyes, because I fear my heart will break” I’m so glad I’ve stopped curbing my overwhelming desire to write about Florence + The Machine every other day. It really has made me so much happier. Not only has it reaffirmed my undying devotion to my delicate songbird, but it has…

Flash Fiction #9: Ceremonials

Weirdly enough, this haunting ghost story was inspired by a quote from the musical Top Hat with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers. Don’t ask me how I revamped a jovial line from a film into a downhearted tale. Honestly, I don’t know. It’s one of my many talents, I suppose. HAPPY READING! 😀 See you…

Depressive Pacman

I have so many plans, so many unfinished drafts, but the mischievous monster in my mind says, “Stop! Watch TV or go to sleep. We can do it later.” Because of this unrelenting encouragement, I have started to believe his lies. He has made me the master of procrastination. Unable to obtain any motivation, I…
