Happy Friday; My gift to you is this song find. I love disco! Fuck subtlety! Life is too short. I want my life soundtrack to be loud, pulsating, filled with no nuance, and screaming my emotions. I need the music to make me swoon, cry, curl up in a ball, or on a day like today, it need to make twirl till I drop. Like I said, fuck subtlety! And kiss someone till you lose your breath and write cliche poetry at 4AM while you eat some eggs and toss back your last glass of wine.
I was sitting at my computer, eating a tuna salad, listening to Jordan Sparks sing “One Wing” from the Sparkle soundtrack and I received this email which just made me shout with joy:
Hey i wanted to drop by and let you know that your post on selfies was so on point, it is quite possibly the most profound thing i have read in a while. I live in Minnesota in a predominantly white city. Intellectually, i have a hard time believing i am ugly. But it hard keeping this up when i face so much rejection and implicit alienation from a population that largely comprises of white gays, that largely favors the thin and muscular and not the thick and luscious. It’s even harder for some of us who are femmy. I have rarely taken the selfie, because i was afraid of the ridicule. Your post has inspired me to take some.Thank you for writing.
This, this, this! I want this to happen; I am already taking my selfies, I want you to start taking and sharing yours! #selfielove
