All of 2017 was a grand listening experience for me. Collaged here are some albums I dove deep into and others I redove into just because I love them so much. I like what I like and I’m not shy about it. I once told someone I often listen to Kelly Clarkson and they proceeded to tell me that she’s probably only famous for sleeping her way to the top, as most female artists do. For one, whooo R Uuuuu? Is Kelly Clarkson your best friend and you are her personal confidant? Does she have you on speed dial? We are having a conversation about MUSIC and you wanna make stupid assumptions? Suffice to say I found her response to be judgmental, ill informed, and not only offensive but extremely off point. When will women be talked about for their talents and ideas rather than what they wear and who they are sleeping with? 2017 gave transparency to shit and Im glad for it. I hope we continue to build a future that’s safer, better for all of us, and all around less judgmental.
Just saw this pic of me as a babe for the first time, and it’s so crazy to me how much I am still the same. I see the look in that little girls eyes and I recognize her inner creativity, determination, and boundary pushing fascination that I still express down to the same palette today. We are born with a muchness! And I’m glad I’m still working with mine! Not only that, but I’m grateful to have a best friend by my side to experience all the ups and downs of life with for all the years I’ve been alive. Love you @quirkchris!
