Coachella Lineup Announced!

Read through that. Soak it in. Breathe. Come on, breathe!

Rumors are verified (The xx, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Postal Service). Big time reconnects (Jurassic 5, Wu-Tang Clan). New movers and shakers (Alex Clare, The Lumineers, Jessie Ware). And, come on is this real life?! (The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Modest Mouse, Tegan and Sara, Franz Ferdinand, Two Door Cinema Club, Passion Pit, Janelle Monae, 2Chainz, Pusha-T, Metric, Beach House, Japandroids, Moby, La Roux. 

Just read it. I could sit here and get excited about just about every band/artist. Every time I re-read this lineup I feel like my head's going to explode.

How did we not know that part of (the culmination? the beginning? the main event of?) the Wu-Tang Clan reunion would be at Coachella? We've been reading about the reunion everywhere but somehow no one caught the scent of THIS. Or maybe I've just been so distracted with news of the Postal Service FINALLY getting back together and re-releasing 'Give Up' along with a tour and previously unheard songs. We've known for a bit that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would have new music this year, so it's awesome they will showcase at Coachella. Chris will disagree with me, but I would give up a finger to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers live. I don't really need all ten. I've wanted to see Modest Mouse for so long!! Sigur Ros, Gaslight Anthem, Divine Fits -- I'm doing it again.

 Currently my one and only mission is getting to Coachella.

Coachella or BUST!!!

Sex. Dirty, Dirty Sex

Friends, I have something I have to let you know - if you don't know already: Sex is disgusting. 
Seriously, think about it. Ew, don't think about it.  Yes, it feels fantastic. If you're with the right person at the right time it feels out-of-this-world incredible (fireworks, much?).  But have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing? Like, literally?
You're placing your most private parts into someone else's most private parts. Or allowing someone to place their most private parts into yours, depending on your gender/sexual preference. That's GROSS, people! Sure we ignore it because it just feels so damn good. But come on, ew!
Then throw on top of that the consequences of this nasty habit we have:  1. A baby. Oh yes, this is a consequence. Particularly if you're not currently in the market for an infant. I don't even want to think about what that does to the body. There's no turning back from a baby. Well, there is, but that's ano…

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

In Get Out, the brilliant new Jordan Peele film, black people are used by white people's brains. 
That's the shortest explanation, as there are so many levels to the movie. I'm typically not one to see scary movies (I can't even get through Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video), but when I read about this movie's perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and the raving reviews from critics, I had to go and support this film from a black director with black stars.

I'm not a fan of scary movies. They always give me nightmares. Before I saw the film, a coworker assured me that I wouldn't have nightmares after watching Get Out. He was right and wrong. I didn't have nightmares about monsters lurking in dark corners, but I stayed awake unpacking all of the themes and metaphors of the film. In doing so, a big part of why I wasn't afraid occurred to me: These …

Denzel Washington > Tom Hanks and I'm sorry.

I was looped into (OK honesty time I looped myself in) to a debate on Facebook about which actor is the best of our time: Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington. 

Initially my thought was: no contest. It's Denzel. I don't understand why we're having a debate. 

But then the Tom Hanks stans went so hard I had to step back and think about whether or not I was trippin' 
But I can assure you I am not. Here are my arguments.
1. Denzel Washington played Malcolm X. Today (May 19th, the date this debate began) is Malcolm's birthday, so triple points for Denzel. 

2. Denzel is sexy as hell. 
I mean, can I just...
Tom, you're a sweetheart but I'm sorry, Denzel's got you on hotness.

3.  Tom and Denzel both have two Oscars. But Denzel was only the second African American actor to win an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role (second to Mr. Sidney Poitier). So if we're talking best of our time, that's a heavy stat. 

4.  We saw Apollo 13 in science class, but we watched R…
