Curating Twitter Lists and 10 Folks You May Want To Follow

To get the most out of Twitter, curation is key. I have four Twitter lists that are segmented either by common interest or location. Cool Black People: Self-explanatory->Well, not really. It is some of “Black Twitter”, some journalists, bloggers, activists and creative. Chicks and Giggles: funny women comedians, actors and writers.  This is where I [...]

Mulaney Observed

This is NOT a review. This is an observation, but not observational funny. Episode 2 of Mulaney was way better than the pilot. I am not a single-camera snob. A multi-camera sitcom can be just as funny. I remember having brunch about three years ago in the Village, and I got to sit next to [...]

Memoir Moment: MakerBot and 3D Printing

Last weekend, I volunteered at Maker Faire Atlanta. While there, I met Norma Toraya who is otherwise known as Crankbunny. She is an animation direction and paper artist. She has a MakerBot and she uses it to make parts and stands for her paper dolls.  I told her that I met Bre Pettis, the founder [...]

TECHmunch Atlanta And Cookbook Publishing

I learn something new at every TECHmunch. If I could I would travel to all them around the country. The first panel with Virginia Willis and Angie Dudley (Bakerella) was a peek in the cookbook publishing industry. By the way Bakerella’s new cake pop e-book on Kindle for Halloween is out now. And you can [...]

I Have Been Rooting For Judy Greer

I don’t like FX’s ‘Married‘ as much as I wanted to. I am a big fan of Judy Greer and thought this sitcom might be her breakout role. However Lina and her husband Russ (played by Nat Faxon) are a pretty unlikeable couple. They are late thirtysomethings with three daughters living in Los Angeles. They [...]

Joan Rivers, You Can Rest Now

Joan Rivers passed away yesterday at the age of 81. She didn’t just fade away. She worked until the end. She was a legend that never got too comfortable. She was a woman who never stopped creating. She was an inspiration.

Memoir Moment: Sharehouse Confidential Book Party

NOTE: After spending a very busy weekend in New York City, I am going to embark on a memoir which will probably span ten years from 2004-2013.  It will be a recollection of moments and events that I experienced first-hand  while living and blogging in New York.  My aim is to highlight the food, drink [...]

Document Your Truth

Just watched the Kathleen Hanna documentary, The Punk Singer, on Netflix . I learned so much about the Riot Grrrl scene from the film. I didn’t really know about it in its heyday since it wasn’t on the radio and I didn’t know anyone listening to it. The closest I got into riot grrl was [...]

Selfie Belongs On The Back Shelfie

ABC bravely put one of its new fall sitcoms on Hulu, “Selfie”. I watched it and it’s just barely watchable. The emoticon, text-message, social media slang used is hard to understand when spoken in a rapid fire pace. This Eliza character would be almost forgivable if she was a teenager a la Cher from “Clueless” [...]

Not Adding Up

This is not adding up. If this video posted on YouTube the day after Mike Brown was killed had any validity, then why did the Ferguson cops not say anything about this until today which is Friday August 15th? In the surveillance photos and the description in the video say that the alleged robber from [...]
