Normal means Nothing or My Body, My Choice.

It is 2016. I am 30. Just 30 - 6 or so weeks in to the decade. I have found myself in the waiting room of Planned Parenthood down the street from my office, because as usual I think I am dying.   I am bloated and spotting and have self diagnosed myself (with the… Continue reading Normal means Nothing or My Body, My Choice.

Always Wear Sunscreen or LCF does the best of the American Medical System.

Darlings, After returning from our wonderful trip, I found myself with a bout of a god awful bacterial infection in my stomach. If you will indulge me in a three act play: Act One:  Move your damn car.   I have terrible stomach pain, which 12 hours of Bravo is not helping. Am wearing mismatched sweats… Continue reading Always Wear Sunscreen or LCF does the best of the American Medical System.

Something I consider often: The state of Brian Wilson’s Happiness

Darlings, I send the same question to my best bud, a musician, at least once a year: “After spending so much time and emotional energy on the masterpiece that is “Good Vibrations,” do you think Brian Wilson hates performing it, or worse, seeing it performed live?” Usually something witty follows - like “...seeing it performed… Continue reading Something I consider often: The state of Brian Wilson’s Happiness

On Yeezy Season 3, or maybe Kanye is this generation’s Warhol…but probably, most very likely not.

Darlings - On Yeezy Season 3: Darlings, do you think that Kimye has something on Anna Wintour? Do you think that they found a picture of her eating a donut and have threatened to share it with all of society if she doesn't publicly support them in all of their ridiculous cultural initiatives. Because I… Continue reading On Yeezy Season 3, or maybe Kanye is this generation’s Warhol…but probably, most very likely not.

Full Catastrophe Living or Why won’t my body work?!

Darlings, I know I said I was going to talk about my undying love for the movie Chef, but that will have to wait. I've gotta tell you something. Last year, 2015, was a tough year for me. Nothing went terribly wrong, but nothing went terribly right either. I hear that in life sometimes you… Continue reading Full Catastrophe Living or Why won’t my body work?!
