I had the chance to see Sveta Bout, a Brooklyn soloist (accompanied by a delightful band on tour,) a few weeks ago when she opened for Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s at the Garrison in Toronto. I was totally blown away by her style of vaudeville pop and proceded to spend my beer money, typically sacrosanct, on her two EPs. The track I’ve linked above is not on either EP, but is...
Babies don't want vegan mommies? What a load of... →
I don’t disagree that a vegan diet can be unhealthy, nor do I think that it’s for everyone. Probably the most aggravating part of becoming vegan wasn’t the change in my diet, but dealing with the attitudes of those around me when it comes up.

A guy can be an asshole and be likeable but a woman can’t, not without apologizing, and I love what Lena Dunham is doing with women and humour.
Dan Harmon Poops: Not That it Helps, But: →
danharmon: I’m really not supposed to be commenting on the situation, which I think is great advice, because anything I say will extend the story’s life and cause more fans discomfort. But as a guy who blogs or tweets every time he wipes his butt, hugs his cat or hurts his girlfriend, it’s conspicuously… The hardest kind of apology to make is the real one where you say “Yeah, I...
