One of my most eagerly anticipated books of 2012 is Struck by author Jennifer Bosworth. The YA novel tells the story of Mia Price, a “lightning addict” who’s been struck by the weather-related electric discharges so many times, she’s covered in veiny red “lightning scars.” However, when a massive earthquake decimates her hometown of Los Angeles, Mia finds herself [...]

Recorded last night as I walked home, a bit tipsy, from Night of the Cookers. I’m not really saying anything, but hey, I promised you more videos. Here ya go. Oh, the song playing in the background is “She” by Tyler, the Creator featuring Frank Ocean. GOLF WANG! Share this:

On last evening, I was fortunate enough to have been the special guest on internet radio show Hip-Hop is For Lovers, hosted by two lovely, intelligent hosts, Uche and Lenee. The aim of HH4L is to create a dialog about sexuality, intimacy, and relationships in hip-hop culture. Last night, the topic was slut shaming, defined [...]

First, I need y’all to udnerstand something. I am currently blogging from a bar. From a motherfucking bar. And not that cute, mobile-style blogging via the WordPress app (which is pretty fucking boss, btw). I’ve got my MacBook Air out on a dirty table, hammering shit out while sipping on a Blue Point and surrounded [...]

A while back, the GUESTLIST Official Mixtape, by Miami’s own DJ Sage, was released, and the reaction has been spectacular. It’s amazing to me that y’all are really feeling the artists on the mixtape.

So Instagram was my favorite thing of 2012 until a couple weeks ago when I discovered Viddy. What is Viddy, you ask? Well, it’s basically Instagram but with video. That’s right. Genius, no? According to their website, Viddy is “a simple way for anyone to capture, produce, and share beautiful videos with the world. Record a moment [...]

Peep this sweet video tribute to Whitney Houston by my musically talented hombre Alex Walker. Share this:

My disdain for e-books and e-readers is well known. As a writer, I recognize that this is the direction publishing is leaning toward, I get that, but I still don’t like them shits. Give me a good old fashioned paper book anytime. Word to Jonathan Franzen. That’s why I was highly amused by this parody [...]

Literary magazine The Missouri Review found and posted this instructional video on how to read a book you don’t want to read. Hey, it’s exactly what it says on the tin, folks. Reading a book you don’t want to read is like cutting down a large tree tucked between three houses; it’s best done piece-by-piece, [...]
