I was tagged by belligerently to list my top ten favorite characters (one per fandom) HAHAHA what do I even like.
Suzanne Sugarbaker (Designing Women) The one, the only. Leia Organa (Star Wars) Dana Whitaker (Sports Night) Dana Scully (The X-Files) never met a Dana I didn’t like. Jessica Drew (Marvel Comics) Prue Halliwell (Charmed) Anya Jenkins (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Jean Grey (X-Men movies) Tamsin (Lost Girl) Samantha Carter (Stargate SG-1) what if sometimes it’s Vala though, would Christine lose her mind???
I am probably forgetting a thousand important people because making lists is hard even though women are never so happy as when they’re making themselves a little list (last night I had to watch Sports Night because I was feeling emotionally compromised by Mass Effect being over, and that’s the one I watched and I was so pleased.) ANYWAY if you too like making lists of things that you like, you should do this.
This is my 10th year of music blogging and I’m being spoiled rotten by how much great music has been released (it’s actually a bit overwhelming). From landmark albums from seasoned artists like Sufjan, Father John Misty and Kendrick to incredible debuts from Natalie Prass, Leon Bridges and Jamie XX, 2015 has it all, and looking at the upcoming release calendar, I doubt it’ll be slowing down any time soon. As usual, I’ve listed my best albums chronologically below and you can listen to my favorite songs in this ongoing Spotify playlist. Enjoy!

“Through books, women have been teaching other women for generations. Our
female ancestors had it pretty tough, but they still managed to grace
the pages of books in style, shutting down the patriarchy left, right,
and center. These 33 books showcase some of the best badass women, real
and fictional, of the last few centuries. After all, where else can we
learn but from the best?” -
