Johanna Fateman wrote a super interesting review of A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s by Stephanie Coontz on bookforum. And, as if this that wasn’t enough, she also painted this amazing picture of Betty Friedan. You go girl.

I’ve been reading this book everywhere, the subway, the bath tub, before I fall asleep, whenever I have a spare minute. I’m trying to make it last as long possible because there are these sentences in it that are so utterly perfect and alive and even though they’re not sad they still make me feel like crying.  Kristin Hersh is such a good writer and has a way of putting things that is not precious at all but completely endearing.

Neal Medlyn is A Genius

If you’ve been reading my blog you probably have figured out I AM A HUGE NEAL MEDLYN FAN. Rarely do I meet an artist who so touches the nether regions of my brain, seriously, he opens new pathways up and I leave his shows feeling like I just did a lot of yoga. And he is funny. And he is a good writer. Anyways, I saw his show, Brave New Girl, when it opened and it was fucking incredible and I am so happy you and yours will have a chance to see it.

Brave New Girl is the second installment of his two-part Britney Spears/Hannah Montana opus. This pop-culture spectacle conflates Medlyn’s personal feelings and stories, and the overlapping identities and Twitter accounts of Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, and Miley Stewart. With snow, shaved armpits, hopes, dreams, diaries, 5 a.m. alone time, live music, theater, dance, and chickens, Medlyn creates a concert performance like none you’ve ever been to before.


And here’s Neal covering the song DYNOMITE…..and telling a story too

My Holiday work…

Has been becoming a part of a new group of friends. We are all convinced that Jay Z and Beyonce are Satanists! Anyways, it is way more important to me than stuff like war, global warming, child sex slavery etc…and my holiday gift to you is sharing this vital information. This mission has been taking up a lot of my time, you know putting up fliers around my neighborhood and also going door to door warning people about the Jay Z/Beyonce threat. So that’s why I haven’t been blogging so much. Please watch this video so you can spread the word.

Bridget Everett was voted the #1 Cabaret Act in NYC!!! And she deserves it. If you live in NYC or will be visiting please type her name in the search engine and see if she has a show playing. You will not be disappointed and could have your life changed. I recently performed at a cabaret show that Bridget hosts with Neal Medlyn and Kenny Mellman because the three of them are so fucking inspirational that they made me want to start doing stuff again. A big holiday to hug to everyone at Our Hit Parade!!!!

Here’s Erin Markey doing baby by Justin Beiber at Our Hit Parade.

There is going to be a TRIBUTE show where various performers do their versions of songs I’ve sung on Saturday. It’s a benefit for a documentary that is being made about me. I can’t wait to see what people do. I am especially honored that one of my favorite artists, Neal Medlyn is hosting.

The show is SOLD OUT already but I feel like it’s weird not to mention it on my blog because I am so fucking excited. I mean Toshi Reagon is going to be singing one of MY songs!!! I also feel super honored that people I’ve never met, but I am a fan of, like Caroline from Chairlift are participating. (She sent a video). Anyways thanks to everyone who organized it and are giving up their time to be involved. I feel really really lucky.
