lost-love
In the early 2000’s, when the scrapbooking craze started to swell in popularity everywhere, I swore I’d never do that “suburban housewife, soccer-mom bullshit”. It irked me when I saw the aisles of my favorite craft store grow from one side of an aisle to two full aisles,...

Take Back The Power! [mixtape]

revolution
  I’m tired of being told that my vote didn’t matter. That I was an uninformed voter. That I was a third party spoiler. Most of all, I’m tired of being told that it is my fault that Trump is packing to move into his new home for...

Morticia [mixtape]

Morticia Carolyn Jones
Being a teenager who was into punk and goth in the late 1980’s wasn’t as commonplace as it is today. I was labeled a freak, and being that freak teenager under the roof of my Mom-ster was bravery at its finest. Finding my individuality and voice – and keeping it – was...
