Music Mondays ft. @lizzo

Music Mondays is a bi-weekly feature where I'll post my favorite songs, videos, albums and/or artists of the week (or maybe even of all-time).

I have to thank Flavorwire for introducing me to today's artist, Lizzo.  Jillian Mapes (@jumonsmapes) wrote:

Minneapolis’ Melissa Jefferson bridges some pretty impossible gaps: the attitude and delivery of Salt-N-Pepa, and the outspoken empowerment and body positivity of riot grrrl. The result is high-energy, Southern-tinged party-rap with a strong message, which most recently caught the attention of Sleater-Kinney.

Ms. Mapes, you had me at outspoken empowerment.  If I had to pick one word to describe Lizzo it would be FIERCE.

A weekly feature that showcases my favorite stuff of the week.  Might include books but, will more likely be a total free for all of things I'm currently loving.

Alpha & Omega Read-a-long Check In and Twitter Chat Info


Hey there party people.  Hope y'all survived Monday.  Just wanted to check in since I haven't been around much for the last couple of weeks.  Hopefully you've been able to read (or have read) Fair Game and are ready to chat this Friday.  The timing for the last chat worked out well so I think I'll schedule the Fair Game chat for the same time.  So I'll see you on Friday at 9:30pm EST (CZT).  Looking forward to it!
