I am so sensitive and prickly regarding people’s voices and I know I’m a bitch about it. There is nothing I hate more than whisper talkers and baby talkers. And with baby talk I don’t mean women/men who have high pitched voices, I don’t care about that, I mean that tonal inflection where someone is coo-ing at me like I’m a baby. Or that thing where people raise their voice in pitch at the end of a sentence like they’re asking a wondrous, wide-eyed question. And dudes do it too, I know so many dudes who do this! But like where does this come from? And not that my voice isn’t grating either but why is every person in my life talking to each other like we’re babies? 

I want people to scream at me at all times please.

I love this song and the other day I came across an interview where Mac DeMarco said this was the song he played when he wanted to seduce a girl in high school. Now all I want is for him to do a cover. He would kill it, right?! 

I had to watch Don’t Look Now again for class tonight. I hadn’t seen it in a few years and, damn, if that isn’t an 100% perfect movie I don’t know what is. Also: I realized 1973 was an insanely killer year for all my favorite spooky movies. The Exorcist, The Wicker Man, Spirit of the Beehive…that’s a reaaal good year.

Having a Lady T moment. Teena Marie always sings about love very seriously. Falling in love is always like a business transaction in some way. Like, this is how we’re gonna do this, listen up. “But M-O-N-E-Y / Never did a thing for L-O-V-I-N,” all she needs is your love for this to work out in this song. And even in “Lovergirl,” it’s all a negotiation! “Let’s make a deal sugar, all I want to do is be your one and only lover.” And in “Square Biz,” come on. I love when she faux-raps “I got the point! the scam! the low! the deal!” Teena Marie is at her sexiest when she is basically writing a Powerpoint presentation. 

Snackwave: A Comprehensive Guide To The Internet’s Saltiest Meme

Now a part of mainstream culture, snackwave is everywhere: it’s printed on American Apparel clothes and seen in Katy Perry music videos. It’s the antithesis to kale-ridden health food culture and the rise of Pinterest-worthy twee cupcake recipes. It’s the wording in your Instagram handle, a playful cheeseburger selfie, Jennifer Lawrence announcing on the red carpet that she’s hungry for a pizza. In snackwave world, everyone is Claudia Kishi, and your junk food drawer is also your blog.

Gabby and I have been brewing this essay on an online aesthetic we call “Snackwave” for quite awhile. It now has a home at The Hairpin.

Angel Olsen Sets Folk-Rock Aflame

"I kind of hate when people say, Oh, she’s making her way from ‘girl with a guitar’ to ‘girl with electric band’," she says of critics and even friends. "It’s like, dude, that’s not nice. What does that mean? Am I just a girl? I put a 100 percent of myself into my record and so did my band and it felt like a change that felt most natural to me at the time.”

I did a lil’ interview with Olsen for RollingStone.com’s “Young Guns” series. She’s great and I wish this was longer.
