Music brings people together, does it not? 

Ever since my friends Michael and Sally told me they met at Coachella five years ago, I’ve thought they were impossibly cool (not that I didn’t already, but you get what I’m saying, eh?). I’m like those girls you’d make fun of from that “Shit LA Girls Say” video: my love for Coachella runs deep. I talk about incessantly, annoyingly and then spend the entire day camped out cooing over Grace Potter and Childish Gambino. What-ever. That said, I also childishly want to meet a guy who likes ferris wheels and plopping down to arm dance just as much as I do – and I want to meet him there.  more…

Know what you want

I was kind of appalled when I entered the Coachella music festival this weekend. There were children, teenagers, girls dressed up like they were going to Burning Man in furry boots and seashell bras, a plethora of celebrities there just to be snapped by the paps and a slew of sceney douchebags who wanted to see and be seen. Fail, Coachella! What happened to the good old days, when people actually went for the music? Were there any guys who actually went to hear the bands, to dance like no one was watching and to meet other like-minded, non-trendy individuals? I was on a mission to find out. Like usual, hope sprung eternal. more…

Really moving on means you need to fully let go of your past

I knew that, in writing this piece, every sappy love song ever recorded would annoyingly flit through my mind like an entire Celine Dion album on repeat. You know what that means, friends: this could get ugly for everyone involved. more…

One giant step backward for womankind?

Can you actually meet someone during MTV’s hip-pop weekend?

If you’re trying to meet a man during VMAs weekend you should come armed and dangerous with three key pieces of information. #1: You will not meet a husband. #2 To attract attention, make sure you’re wearing something as small and red/sparkly as humanly possible. #3 Prepare to get laid, played and sent away. Sorry ladies, but that’s just the way it is. more…

Keep every Thursday open for the rest of the summer. Just sayin’

I don’t know what in the hell is wrong with me (OK, that’s a lie). Every single Thursday last summer I made up an excuse to avoid the FREE concerts at Santa Monica pier. I had to wash my hair. I had to work. I had to sleep. And so forth. All these things were probably true, as I had a hellish, time-consuming job around this time last year, but there is no excuse for such a grave misstep. You want men, ladies? I’ll give you men. Lots and lots and lots of men. Every Thursday night for the rest of the summer. Did you hear my purr of contentment? more…

A new survey done by the music dating site Tastebuds claims to know the strength of your sexual drive — simply by the bands you love

First, let me say that I am now a huge, huge fan of Tastebuds. I love this dating site so much it may as well be Jonny Lang, Jont Whittington or Ray Lamontagne, three musicians I adore and admire, all rolled into one wonderful man. Tastebuds, for the record, is a site that matches you by musical taste (ostensibly so you’ll have something to talk about on your first date, before the conversation dries out). So, before I go on, check out this site if you’re a music lover. You might just find a man who includes you in the liner notes of his first CD — which, to me, is better than poetry. A girl can always dream. more…
