Mildly Bitter Doesn't Get Tumblr

A sarcastic theater blogger tumbles...barely.

We were on tour with The Bangles a couple years ago and we were talking to the Peterson sisters. They were like, “What the hell? We were so sure that after we broke and all the success that we had that it would be like floodgates [of all girl bands].” Even The Bangles were saying this! “There was The Go-Go’s, and then us, and then we just figured, here we go! It’s going to change everything.” But there hasn’t been a successful all-female band since The Bangles. We were the closest thing that came to it. We got signed to Atlantic, we were on Lava, stuff happened with VH1. It seemed like we were going to break that way. And somehow the music industry just put the breaks on.
Super interesting conversation about all-lady rock bands with Kristen Ellis-Henderson of Antigone Rising. Her band has even started a foundation to help get more girls on instruments. Check it here.  (via katherinecoplen)

If you’re full of self-loathing and feelings of inadequacy now, just wait until someone you went to college with wins a Genius Grant.

Just wait until next year when my Haikus win me one.

We had a lot of issues to work through in this episode.  Sometimes theater breaks your heart (in the wrong ways) and/or feels like an assault.

Someone on Tinder is throwing shade at me for never having seen Parks and Rec, but he’s never seen 30 Rock, which is WAY worse, right?

I started watching Parks and Recreation last night for the first time ever.
