I am so fucking pumped for the first ever ‘Cool Shit List’ – a brand new series for me to share things I found cool, interesting, badass, gamechaning, etc. throughout the week/month. This will be a mix of music to imagery to shows to photography to fashion to recipes and more. It’s really just a series where I can share things that I find interesting but also showcase incredible work from designers, artists, creators, etc. In addition, I think this series pushes me to expose myself to new things.
Cool shit to listen to
This week I’m obsessed!!!! with the new Chloe X Halle album, Ungodly Hour. If you haven’t heard it – check it out!
Then, obviously, you can’t mess with the Queen, Beyonce’s Black Parade is beautiful and powerful. Can’t Breathe by H.E.R. is a must listen to anthem as well as Sometimes (which is older but still one of my favs).
Other current favs are:
March March & Julianna Calm Down from the new renamed The Chicks
Me Gusta by Shakira
Bitch by Ruby Amanfu (from Little Fires Everywhere), Original by Meredith Brooks
Futbol & Rumba by Enrique Inglesias & Anuel AA
Free Woman by Lady Gaga
Woman by Kesha
You can find all these in the Dragonfly Ave Cool Shit Playlist here!
Cool shit to watch
This week I didn’t actually watch very much tv or film so I’ll include a few things I’ve watched recently.
Disclosure (Netflix) – This is a documentary about Trans people and more specifically how they’ve been portrayed in film & media throughout the years. I’d consider myself an LGBTQ ally but I also know there is so much that I don’t know and this film was incredibly powerful and enlightening. Honestly, everyone should watch and learn! And if you want to continue learning more visit here!
Little Fires Everywhere (Hulu) – This show is beautiful, intense, and amazing. It touches on so many issues and the depiction of race, sexuality and being a woman is beautifully done. It’s such an interesting show that I think helps bring up important conversations and discussions.
Queer Eye (Netflix) – I mean, LOVE them!
L.A. Orginials (Netflix)
Bold Type – Yes, just yessss!!! One of my favs! (Freeform)
Looking for Alaska (Hulu)
The Half of It (Netflix)
Never Have I Ever (Netfix)
