Daisy has been a creator on Vocal for quite some time now and every time, her stories have inspired us to be more adventurous and brave in unexpected ways. Whether she's talking about dreamy getaways or unique experiences, her stories are always a good way to take a mental break—something that we could certainly use, especially now. We wanted to learn some more about what inspires her travels and mindset so we got to chat with her and ask her some questions. Read below for her Creator Spotlight.
I moved to Brooklyn just over 3 years ago, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that I go to Clementine maybe three times a week—every week. This tiny bakery near my apartment in Clinton Hill has become my neighborhood staple. I never expected to find "my neighborhood spot" so soon after moving to the area, but it truly was love at first bite (you'll have to try their wraps—or anything really, to understand what I mean!)
I awoke to a dark sky. I craned my neck to see out the window next to my bunk only to find the sun was still tucked behind the snowcapped mountains. I rubbed my swollen eyes in awe. Where I am? I thought. But then I remembered where I had landed just that morning at 5:00AM… Iceland. I was in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Given all that's happening around us, we wanted to put together something that soothes the overwhelming emotions that we're all experiencing. This month we're bringing To the Beat back in an effort to highlight you, the creators, who lift us up when we're feeling down. Your stories have made this playlist possible, with songs that remind us to dance, that help us blow off some steam, that make us hopeful, that make us think of better days, that we dedicate to those we love, and so much more.
Though much of the satire throughout the series can easily be traced back to real life (for example, Mr Peanutbutter's campaign for governor being a parody of Trump's presidential run), a perhaps more subtle yet still remarkably clear allegory throughout the show's existence is the striking similarities between Bojack Horseman and the life and works of Tennessee Williams.
