music is my boyfriend

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 things that catch my attention.

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.
Who I Follow
Write because you want to communicate with yourself. Write because you want to communicate with someone else. Write because life is weird and tragic and amazing. Write because talking is difficult. Write because it polishes the heart. Write because you can. Write because you can’t. Write because there is a blackbird outside of my window right now and oh my god isn’t that the best start to the day? Write because you’re trying to figure yourself out. Write because you might not ever figure yourself out. Write because there still aren’t enough love poems in the world.

got to check off something from my bucket list while on my birthday trip to london - seeing robbie williams live. i know that for everyone living outside the united states, this probably wouldn’t be a big deal, but the last time he played here was 1999. i have adored him for so long and both shows were amazing.

So I buy a lot of comics. A lot. And since Tumblr likes comics featuring awesome ladies, I figured I should write a list of all the comics currently coming out featuring awesome ladies.

First, let’s start with the superhero stuff:

Nerdship, I have a confession to make. I didn’t grow up reading comic books. I spent my formative years reading – like all girls the grew up in the 80′s and early 90′s –…
