music is my boyfriend

who i am: jess, old enough to rent a car, redhead by choice, mfa candidate.

things you need to know: i now live in chicago, but i used to live in new york city. i go to a lot of shows. i stopped being ashamed of my musical tastes a long time ago. the first time i heard "eleanor rigby" by the beatles, i was nine years old and it changed my life. i'm writing a novel.

what you'll find here: music, my first true love; writing - quotes about it, bits of it, book recommendations; other pop culture miscellanea, up to and including my obsession with all things british, various superheroes, and other shiny things that catch my attention.

So, he gave him — it kinda gave him no choice that he had made on his own to become — to be in the army, which later for me kinda gave him that angst to be unsure whether or not he wanted to be there."

one of the best parts of yesterday’s panel at chicago comic con.

"Very fair was her face, and her long hair was like a river of gold. Slender and tall she was in her white robe girt with silver; but strong she seemed and stern as steel, a daughter of kings.”
