I'm a huge fan of the internet as a place for content creators to share their stuff with the world. It's an amazing platform for people to reach an audience without the help of big corporations or networks. I spend a lot of time on the internet, and I want to start sharing some of things that make me laugh, or make me think. I'm not sure how regular this "column" will be, but I have some stuff I've been obsessed with lately, and I'd like to share that with my dozens of readers (hi mom!). You should take my recommendations seriously because I am a millennial who understands the value of new media and therefore my opinion matters. I'm also always looking for new content to consume, so if you have any recommendations please share in the comments!
I stumbled upon this web series through a mutual friend on facebook. It's relatively new, but I'm already obsessed with the writing style. It's a seemingly predictable premise, making fun of the LA brunch crowd, but I've found myself laughing out loud at the majority of the jokes. Episode 3 is my favorite so far and I can't wait to see more.
Podcasts are so cool to me. I actually look forward to driving places so I have an excuse to spend some time in the car and listen to a new podcast. Right now I'm really enjoying the Risk podcast, which features real stories that people never thought they would share. It's funny, heart-warming, sad and eye-opening all at once. Start with the "best of" episodes and then branch out from there.
While Beyonce will always be my number once music choice. I've actually been enjoying the new Selena Gomez album Revival, my favorite song is called "Sober". As a general warning, don't expect to find anything groundbreaking in the my music section, ever. I have the music taste of a 12 year old girl and I only listen to playlists that have been recommended to me by spotify. Just trying to manage expectations here. But this album is fun to listen to while I get ready in the morning and I like the new style of music that Selena's been putting out.
This essay from Jezebel entitled, "Female Purity is Bullshit". I love it and it speaks to me on an emotional level. I don't have much else to say about this. I think you can tell from the title if it will be something you enjoy reading or not.
