Happy Father’s Day to this goddamn gem. Here are three photos that illustrate pretty much every interaction we have. 📷: @angry_tony @caragotoheller #gengetsrich2019
Hi! I married my life partner, Genevieve Jones, on Saturday. If you've never married Genevieve before, consider it! It is the most fun and happiness you will ever experience in your entire life. There's a perfect little beach resort and a small army of the finest human beings to ever walk the planet and an escape room and fireworks and jungle treehouses and a blessed fuck-ton of Whitney Houston music. You will feel like someone fundamentally rearranged all the molecules in your body so you can now hold more joy in your heart than you had ever thought possible. You will leave deliriously excited to find out what the next couple decades have in store. Anyway: hard recommend! #gengetsrich2019

Hi! I burned an entire Saturday standing on all the most intense lines in town and wrote about it for Los Angeleno, the killer upstart LA publication launching today. Very proud of this one. Link in bio! @ellengagnet cameos!
#tbt 25 years ago I was a corruptible preteen/cub movie reviewer for the local paper, the Asbury Park Press. Baby’s first celebrity interview was with the stars of The Little Rascals remake, and since it was August 1994 I of course used that teeny paycheck to buy mother fucking Maximum Carnage for Sega Genesis. To this day, I remain painfully on-brand.

Ok, I finished my year of logging all the art I consumed every single day, and I can’t recommend this experience enough? Surprisingly fun, but even more surprisingly, an incredibly effective way to map out who I was and how I felt every day of the year. It’s an autobiography written in fucking excel sheet cells. If any part of you wants to try it out this year, y’all can download the 2019 template at the link in my bio.
I truly got the best hate mail for my Guns N’ Roses article. I am over the moon.
ADVENTURE CLUB IN FULL EFFECT. This place rules.
Hi! I wrote a piece for Noisey and joined all my childhood heroes in that most sacred of rites: talking shit about Axl Rose. Link in bio!
Massive congratulations to Ocasio-Cortez for her win in NY's 14th District and her ascension to the office of You Are Already My President And Now I Will Just Wait A Decade Or Two Until You Are Everyone Else's Too Because For The Past Six Months Whenever All Of The Hope Has Left My Body I Just Remember That Someday A Fucking Democratic Socialist Latina City Kid Is Going To Save Us All And I Am Good With That So Thank You Ms. Eventual President-Elect You Are A Light In The Darkness.
Hi! Did you know calls to RAINN's helpline shot up 42% last week? Let's help people who help people. I just made a donation to RAINN in honor of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I didn't know what else to do today, but this feels like a decent place to start. The donation link is in my bio! Kick in! Pass the hat around!
#fbf This summer blew by so fast I forgot to document our yearly kickoff tradition: Good Call’s 8th Annual 4th of July BBQ ‘90s One Hit Wonder-ish Recital. Also, we realized all too late one of these songs came out like two months after the 90s ended BUT pointing that technicality out would be so fucking 90s of you. cc: my heavenly band siblings @khanbalyk @ashlyle33 @alisoneakle @caragotoheller. 📸: @baldino @melockman @mollyprather
Hey! I wrote about Star Wars, virtual reality, and malls for @Vice’s killer video game site, Waypoint, and this sentence contains pretty much all of my favorite nouns. Link in bio!
Baby won his first StorySLAM at The Moth last night! They even give you an adorable certificate which, if you press it against your dashboard, has the power to summon an apocalyptic-level NPR membership drive that reigns for a thousand years of darkness.
WHY YES I LIKE IT HERE VERY MUCH THANK YOU FOR ASKING #rcgla2018 #mvp2018
How great is this!? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a proud member of the NY DSA. A rent control measure is on the ballot for Angelenos because of the LA DSA. The Secretary of Homeland Security was shamed out of that Mexican restaurant by the DC DSA. My peoples, you ALREADY love all the shit the Democratic Socialists of America are up to and you maybe didn’t even know it! . If you are unfamiliar: the DSA is not a political party, it’s a wonderful grassroots organization of energized volunteers who share your economic & social values, and who are fighting their asses off daily to reinvigorate the Democratic Party while everyone else you know writes pouty Facebook posts. Let’s help the DSA kick more ass! The link to donate and/or join is in my bio! . Also! If the words “democratic socialism” still sound like wacky far out shit to you, I promise, it’s the same progressive values you already believe in. For real, check out Ocasio-Cortez’s platform! Call or email me! It’s all your favorite stuff: racial and gender and LGBTQ equality, abolishing ICE, reproductive rights, universal healthcare, getting corporate money out of politics, rebuilding a healthy middle class, etc. Let’s win the fucking midterms and then the fucking presidency and then leave this whole weird ass country better off than when we found it, deal? Great. We’re up.
I can’t tell if this is insane or not, but this year I’m keeping a comprehensive running list of all the art I’ve consumed every single day. Try it and/or judge me! (Update: Template download link is now in my bio)
Hi! Just a sensual reminder that you can make a donation and/or call your reps and be done within literal minutes. You will feel better. I promise.
