I help edit Flavorwire, geek out on teen TV for the L.A. Times ShowTracker blog, and write about music for a few places. I'm also in the midst of co-editing, with Niina Pollari, a zine and book project called "It's Complicated: Feminist Writers on the Misogynist Art We Love," which you can also follow on Tumblr.
Oh, you know, just having the kind of Monday where I needed to listen to Bikini Kill on the way to work and got to thinking that if “Rah! Rah! Replica” was not actually written about Bertha from Jane Eyre, it would at least be perfect as her theme song:
I caught my boyfriend kissing a replica Oh God, she looked just like me Only nice and sweet and better But she’s not bacon, boy She’s fucking sizzlelean, yeah
She burnt my dresses and she cut my hair She burnt my dresses and she cut my hair He burnt my dresses and he cut my hair Doused out the fire in my stare
