Happy Birthday LeVar Burton!

If you’ve ever taken a look inside a book, you owe someone a “thank you”. That someone is LeVar Burton.

TV Bae: Shonda Rhimes/Year of No

She’s old, and likes to lie. But in reading her humorous and heartfelt journey to self-fulfillment, I was inspired and reassured. If Shonda Rhimes, the inventor of Thursday nights can struggle and shine, so can I.

Can I Have an Aaliyah Moment?

Can I come over? Come over... to see you tonight? Nights like these make me wish I had a single bed. That other side ain't nothin but mockery. To press my forehead up to yours. Sappy eskimo kisses.
