10 Disney Channel Songs To Kickstart Your Galentine's Day
Disney Channel and Galentine's Day may not seem like they go together and maybe they shouldn't, but like peanut butter and celery, somehow they do.
20 Black Love Songs For the Perfect Valentine's Day
February doesn't get enough credit for being one of the best months of the year. From it being Black History Month to Valentine's Day on the 14th to the freaking Super Bowl, there is a lot to celebrate in this short month (at least, if you live in the U.S.). And what is any celebration without music? Boring, that's what.
Why I Refuse to Talk About the Chiefs' Loss
If you've read my story Surviving "Killa City", you might know that as a Kansas City native, I am a big Chiefs fan. Which is why this year's Super Bowl definitely was a downer for me. So much so that I checked out right before half time (I didn't even watch the Halftime Show and that's saying something because I love watching the Halftime shows). After spending two quarters yelling at my TV and cussing out the referees for the constant flags against the Chiefs, I knew in order to keep my blood pressure at a normal level, it was best to remove myself from the carnage.
I'm 22 and I Still Watch Barney...
A couple of days ago, I got dragged down a rabbit hole by a purple dinosaur and it all started when I was digging through boxes in my parents' house and found a familiar white VHS tape.
I Hit a Wall. Now What?
Every writer gets to a point when they feel like they have exhausted all of their creative energy. I just didn't expect mine to come so soon. A month ago, I felt as though I was on top of the world as far as my Vocal writing career went after getting two back to back staff-picked stories (as they were called at the time).
Move Over, Real Housewives
I have been very open about some of my more cringe-worthy entertainment obsessions from Glee to Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist and recently, my obsession with Bollywood films. My newest addiction, however, definitely takes the cake when it comes to guilty pleasures, because this time, I actually feel guilty.
Is the Olivia Rodrigo/Joshua Bassett/Sabrina Carpenter Love Triangle the New Miley Cyrus/Nick Jonas/Selena Gomez?
A few weeks ago, I got into a debate with my 14-year-old niece about why my generation of Disney Channel was better than hers. My argument, besides just having better quality shows, was that the current generation lacks the entertainment of the drama that came with the Disney stars like mine did. I argued that the more recent Disney stars couldn't muster up a lover's quarrel like Joe Jonas and AJ Michalka, which resulted in the iconic "Potential Breakup Song" by Aly & AJ. Nor could this new generation provide a love triangle that could live up to the Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, and Selena Gomez triangle of the late 2000s. A few days ago, I was proven wrong however.
Surviving "Killa City"
TRIGGER WARNING: Death, homicide, suicide, police brutality In the "Heart of America" lies a city that is close to my own heart. A city that raised me for fourteen years of my life. To the outside world (at least those who care to know about it) it is known for its top-notch BBQ, blues and jazz music, the rapper Tech N9ne, and recently, the current reigning Super Bowl champs.
