An Imagined Conversation With Pandora Radio About Its Obsession With The Song, “Sail”

An Imagined Conversation With Pandora Radio

Me: Ooh, I liked that song. Thumbs up, Pandora.

Pandora: Great! Glad you liked it. Since you liked that song, I think you will LOVE this next song: it’s called “Sail” by AWOLNATION.

Me: Hmm … OK, sure. That song is kind of old and overplayed, but it’s catchy enough.

Pandora: Since you didn’t thumbs up or thumbs down that song, I have another one I think you’re going to just love: “Sail” by AWOLNATION. Keep reading »

I Want To Go To There: The Sparkling Turquoise Pool Hidden Underneath Paris

This serene scene isn’t a buried relic from the Roman Empire or a magical underground fairy beach (which was my first thought, honestly), it’s actually a reservoir buried under one of the busiest, most crowded cities in the world. Built in 1874, the tank lies undisturbed beneath the streets in the south of Paris, and still supplies about 1/5th of the city’s population with fresh, clean water. It’s obviously closed off to the public to maintain its pristine quality, but oh, what I wouldn’t give to go for a dip… [MNChic]

 

Finally, The Iggy Azalea/Reba McEntire “Fancy” Mashup We’ve Been Waiting For

Iggy + Reba Fancy Mashup

Iggy Azalea made waves when she released her single, “Fancy,” along with a “Clueless”-themed music video, but for many of us, there was and always will be only one song named “Fancy,” and that’s the Reba McEntire country classic. Thanks to music mashup genius Chambaland, we never have to choose between the two again. Listen to the twangy, sassy, double dose of “Fancy” after the jump… Keep reading »

The Beautiful Story Of Ryland Whittington: A 7-Minute Guidebook For Parenting A Transgender Child

Ryland Whittington Transgender Story
"This is our amazing son."

“Wow” is all I have to say after watching this beautiful video that tells the story of Ryland Whittington, a bright, fun, loving little boy who happens to be transgender. Ryland’s story is fairly typical of many transgender kids — around age 3, he started rejecting a traditionally feminine presentation and self-identifying as a boy. The confusion soon morphed into feelings of shame and frustration. From there he could have spiraled into self-loathing, depression, and isolation, but what makes Ryland’s story different from so many trans people’s childhood experiences is that he also happened to be born with a truly amazing set of parents.

Long Distance Friendship

My best friend Katelyn just came to visit me in Nashville for a long weekend. When we both lived in Portland, we were pretty much inseparable, and ever since I moved away a year ago, it’s been hard. We’ve been doing pretty good at the long distance friendship thing, but man, seeing her in person made me realize just how much I miss her. No matter how many new friends I make or how often we talk on the phone, there’s something so uniquely wonderful and satisfying about in-person friend time. After dropping her off at the airport (so much tears), I couldn’t resist compiling a list of some of the things I miss most about living in the same city as my beloved BFF… Keep reading »

16 Things Your Bartender Really Wants You To Know

Ah, the life of a bartender. It’s a job that requires endless patience, a sharp memory, and a great sense of humor, not to mention serious crowd control skills. Slinging coffee drinks is hard enough; but when alcohol is involved? Every shift is an unpredictable rollercoaster ride. Whenever I’m crammed into a crowded bar like a thirsty sardine, watching people wave dollars in the air, I always wonder what it’s like for the person on the other side of the bar. What can customers do to make their job easier? What drinks do they secretly think are a ripoff? What is the final word on what constitutes a good tip? To quell my curiosity, I rounded up as many bartenders as I could find and asked them one question: what would you really like your customers to know? Here’s what they said, in their own words:
