A bunch of random thoughts, strung together: I don’t write much—okay hardly at all—about this version of a President we have now but I really, really enjoyed reading this statement of his: “I’m President and you’re not.” Yo, this isn’t the Chevy Chase hour. If you have any interest in writing about him, please, send your piece to me here. *** I’m looking forward to the weekend, I just want two days of not waking up at 7; if only I could convey that missive to my dog, Rocky. (Follow him on Instagram!) *** I’ve also changed my fitness routine to doing the elliptical in the morning, instead of at night, because it turns out I have more energy in the morning, except today, because The Teenager has a half-day which means, an Xbox fest for her and her friends are happening in my living room this afternoon (I’m sure I will post about it on the BARB Instagram) and being around that? Not so fun. More fun for me to be on the elliptical than listening to XBox speak, *** And finally, I am obsessed with these three bands and you ought to listen to them too: Spiral Stairs’ “Doris & The Daggers,” Spoon’s Hot Thoughts and Hiccup’s Imaginary Enemies. Get them all and check out my interview with Hiccup’s Hallie Bulliet! *** That’s it for now, have a great weekend!

Andi Zeigler: “Right now, especially in the wake of the election there are many more brands that are really grabbing onto feminism and being like, okay, this is a good way to sell products that have nothing to do with feminism or progress. Marketplace feminism comes to steal the show from more explicit active feminism.”
