One love.

POSTED ON BY vanessa

I really hope that those people who believe homosexuality is a sin are diligent in documenting their views. Because it’s going to be awesome in thirty years when a future generation looks back on their grandparents and are like, Jesus, they were ignorant. Continue reading

Totally, Rob.

POSTED ON BY vanessa

I learned there that the funniest thing in the world is not a group of men, nor is it a group of women. It’s women and men working together. And if you want to make a collaborative, funny project, be it a sketch group, an improv show, a movie or a TV show, you better the fuck involve women and men together in your endeavor, or it simply won’t be all that it could be.

When you have no ground on which to stand

POSTED ON BY vanessa

Right now I am on my weekly flight from LAX to JFK.  I am somewhere over the middle of the country.  It seems fitting that I all I can think is, I don’t know where I am.

SEC? More like SE-suck

POSTED ON BY vanessa

I have loathed the SEC for far too long to be cool with this news: Mizzou moves to SEC I get what it means financially for my alma matter. Yay, money. But no one, save for those actually in it, … Continue reading

This is where I’ve decided to start placing my gum because I’ve also decided that I really should take it easy tonight.

POSTED ON BY vanessa

I don’t understand how the question is even, “How can we put to death a (potentially) innocent man?” Why are we comfortable with putting people to death as long as someone’s guilty? There are things so profoundly sad, I wish … Continue reading

Will work for food.

POSTED ON BY vanessa

Hi guys! Guess what’s in my freezer?! I’ll show you. Basically, the most unhealthy contents of a freezer ever. Except that the french fries are organic. And I’m fairly certain that Ben & Jerry use hormone-free milk. Or something.

Head Down

Ummm…

POSTED ON BY vanessa

Is this some sort of hipster irony? I srsly can’t tell.  I wrote an article for EJ called, Your face sucks.  (And other things you shouldn’t say on the Internet.) It’s about how lame it is to post (anonymous) comments … Continue reading

In preparation for an article I’m about to post on Elephant Journal about the mostly anonymous world of commenting on the Internet, I thought it’d be a good time to repost this one. I wrote it about the comments directed … Continue reading
