The ’90s are my decade. Why do you think I wear so much flannel, make regular references to “90210,” and sing “Doll Parts” at karaoke? Because it’s forever 1992 in my soul.

You know, where it looks like you just ran your fingers through the front of your hair and then flipped it to the side, all casual and nonchalant-like. Sometimes the hair flip was all silky and slippery looking, like Alicia Silverstone in “The Crush” and “Clueless” and those awesome Aerosmith videos.

In true Thanksgiving spirit, it’s time again to reflect upon my year, my life and the things I’m most thankful for. Some obvious blessings made my list, along with some more timely things I’m thankful for, but every single one has in some way, made my life happier, easier or fuller this year. Without further ado, here are 10 things I’ll be thinking of while I chow down on turkey this Thursday. Keep reading »
Today, peaceful protesters — the protesters people have been calling for after a night of looting, burning, and destruction following the no-indictment decision for Darren Wilson on Monday — gathered in Saint Louis, Missouri to demonstrate in the city’s downtown area. DeRay McKesson, a Ferguson protester who has been particularly active on Twitter over the last three months, documented the demonstration.
