PEN15

I love this show. From the description:  “Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle star in this adult comedy, playing versions of themselves as thirteen-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, surrounded by actual thirteen-year-olds”.

You should watch the trailer, but I wanted post this clip (I know it might come off as sexist that I the one clip I post about it is this one about a guy in their classroom, but it’s probably my favorite line of the show):

Just being Miley

Kacey Musgraves’ last album has been on repeat due to it being not only really great, but also at the right levels to always have it in the background. Yet by not paying enough attention, I have just let it play through the rest of the albums (I’ve listened to her Christmas album in it’s entirety a handful of times now) and this Miley Cyrus song has now lodged it’s way into my subconcious:


Yeah, here is a link to the original. BTW… What do else do you think they were considering as lyrics before they settled on “my best friend Leslie”? A weird reference to a non-existent person?

Everyone knows it’s Windy

When hearing “that’s why they call it the Windy City!”, Chicago nerds, like myself, love to point out that the nickname originated as a reference to the hot air of the city’s politicians than it did to the physical wind off the lake. In one of the random rabbit holes I found myself today, it seems the nickname originated as a reference to both the wind off the lake and the hot air of it’s residents.

For a quick read, check out the wikipedia here. For a little bit more of a read, check out this Tribune blog post.

If all three of you that read this site already knew that, I apologize for wasting your time; it was a little bit of a mind blow for me.

Also, why make a reference in the title to something totally different and not include that? (and every post seems to require a youtube embed).
