People are shocked to hear that we’re such power users of social media and THAT astonishment never ceases to amaze me.  It actually grinds my gears and […]

The AOL Dial Up Chronicles: Throwback Thursday

Sit down, kids. I’d like to tell you a story. It’s of a time way back when, before we could fit a phone, camera, music player, video player and recorded into a machine the size of a hershey’s candy bar. Picture it, people’s houses, 1998… This was an ancient time when internet connection wasn’t wifi-enabled […]

5 Lessons from My Week-Long Social Media Break

It’s my job to be attached to the internet. I get paid to mind other people’s businesses online and be all up into what’s happening in pop culture. Plus, I’m a child of generation social media so I am HYPER-connected. I’m active on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google+ etc. etc. and being on those […]

#KanyeJobTitles is Twitter’s Latest (and Hilarious) Roast

Kanye West being on this media blitz for his Yeezus album and tour has been a gift and a curse. It’s a gift because there’s no shortage of material from Kanye’s shenanigans (like when he was on Jimmy Kimmel), and curse because of the same reason. No one loves Kanye like Kanye and YAYYY high […]

Jaden Smith’s Philosophical Tweets Are Socrates’ Worst Nightmare

The Smiths (Will and Jada an’ ‘em) are an interesting bunch but Jaden Smith is proving to be quite the newsworthy one. He’s BFFs with Justin Bieber (who seems to be tweaking more and more every day), he might be dating Kylie Jenner and all his pants seems to be from MC Hammer’s wardrobe circa […]

The Bitstrips Abuse on Facebook Must Stop, Beloveds

I LOVE cartoons and my main avatar on these interwebs has been a Yahoo! Avatar for YEARS! It’s even in my site header. But the thing is that I can be represented well by a cartoon because I have cartoonish features. Let’s face it, I look like a walking drawing sometimes because I have really […]

#90sRnBBiopics: Films We’d Love to See About Our Faves (Twitter Edition)

Twitter was on a ROLL last night. After Crazy Sexy Cool went off, folks decided they were ready to stroll down memory lane with some of their favorite crooners from the 90s.

VH1 just finished airing the much-anticipated TLC biopic starring Keke Palmer, Drew Sidora and Lil Mama and it was actually pretty good. I’ll get to that review in my next post though. I am here because the best thing to come from watching the movie is the wig snatch of Pebbles, TLC’s first manager. She […]

#50ShadesofShade: I Read 50 Shades of Grey and Live-Tweeted It

On Friday evening, I read Samantha Irby’s post on her 50 Shades of Grey read and it made me laugh so hard that I was inspired. I have managed to avoid the book soccer moms everywhere have been losing their minds over, even after it was sent to me as a PDF last year. But […]

#ABCReports: ABC News’ FAIL on “Twerking” Roasted on Twitter
