Episode 12: Turnabout is fair play

“Your sole mission is to articulate your suffering in a way that emancipates you and empowers others.”

Carole Radziwill, author and Real Housewife of New York City

If Britney Spears can survive 2007, then I can get up and go to work. Watch her Carpool Karaoke here. We saw her live and it was amazing, or at least what we can remember of it.

Amy had art night with a friend/coworker and it was a way to fill the well, as Julia Cameron recommends in The Artist’s Way.  Paula is teaching an Artist’s Way workshop! There is still space.

From Julia Cameron‘s The Artist’s Way:

Art is an image-using system. In order to create, we draw from our inner well. This inner well, an artistic reservoir, is ideally like a well-stocked trout pond. We’ve got big fish, little fish, fat fish, skinny fish– an abundance of artistic fish to fry. As artists, we must realize that we have to maintain this artistic ecosystem.

If we don’t give some attention to upkeep, our well is apt to become depleted, stagnant, or blocked. Any extended period of piece of work draws heavily on our artistic well.

As artists we must learn to be self-nourishing. We must become alert enough to consciously replenish our creative resources as we draw on them– to restock the trout pond, so to speak. I call this process filling the well.

Leslie Jones, we are with you.

There were naked statues of Donald Trump as part of an art “thing” called “The Emperor Has No Balls” put up by an anarchist collective called INDECLINE.

It’s body shaming! Even Donald Trump doesn’t deserve to be body shaming. By putting this statue up, you’re inviting comments on his body and opening it up to shaming him for his body. “Shame me for my behavior, not my body.”

Turnabout is fair play!

POLICE

(Pretend like Amy updated that header, okay?)

Little 10 year old Legend Preston had guns drawn on him and was chased by police because he “fit the description” of a 20 year old, dread-lock having, facial hair having felon.

Here’s the video of Patisha Soloman talking to her son Legend Preston. What a great mom!

Please go watch S.W.A.T. Do yourself a favor. You’ll thank me.


We have to break down the burkini ban in France. We loooooooooooove when men decide what’s appropriate for women to wear. We can’t even with these dumb French police. This picture really upset us.

You gotta read this article in which Sara Benincasa answers an internet troll who asks “why’d you get so fat?” It’s a hysterical, warm & delicious read.

Also, are you watching RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars? JUST GO DO IT.

That’s it for us! Please stay hungry!!! We love you!
