An Email From My Mom

Postcards From Yo Mamma is a website filled with the crazy things moms say on the internetz, it was a big deal like a year ago and actually got turned into a book (as publishing companies tend to do, because they're erratic entities fighting to stay relevant).

Regardless, in the vein of "Parents say the Darndest Things!" this is an email my mom sent me today:

SUBJECT - RE: Hi [Mind you this email was in response to nothing, she just likes to put RE: in the subject header to annoy me.]

Hi Kia,

Okay so I’m not trying to bug you or project my will on to you, but as I walked through our Student Union here on campus I was thinking how you’re being a college professor would seem to fit you so well. I am projecting when I say that while, I don’t love the particular job I do at the moment I LOVE academia…with all its quirks and politics. But you being SO BRILLIANT and a lover of reading and writing, and loving engaging in intellectual conversation….well you know where I’m going…..higher ed has your name all over it. You basically make your own schedule, have all holidays off (which are supposed to be for scholarship….but that depends on where you teach. Research 1 places are all about scholarship). Anyway, thanks for letting me ……be me.

Love you,


This is a conversation my mom has with me AT LEAST once a month, so at this point I just humor her with a smile and a nod. Special lady. For more "cute" parent antics, check out Parents Just Don't Understand.

That's right people, I'm a regular DJ Khaled up in this piece... or something.

Basically when I was putting together my list of fav things from '09, I realized not only was it a lot of singles, but also pretty autobiographical (in the coincidental way that my life always is). So I decided to make myself a little mini-mixtape, cued up my Garage Band, and got my DJ on.

Here are the tracks:

1. Not Giving Up - Daniel Merriweather
2. Tricky Tricky - Royksopp
3. The Girl and the Robot - Royksopp
4. With Every Heartbeat - Robyn
5. Heads Will Roll - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
6. You've Changed - Lauren Flax

This was the first time I've done something like this, and it was def one of the most challenging fun projects I've done in a while... much respect to people who do this on a reg basis (including my favs DJ Moma, Spinna, and Premonition).

Stoner Cat

Your cat used to be fun until he started smoking pot, now all he does is sit around high playing Xbox and drinking OE.

Friends don't let felines do drugs.

I stand corrected: Meet Deandre Cole

I recently shamed one of my tastemaker contributors for coming up with a lame alias, not realizing that this particular friend has a knack for obscure pop culture references. Meet the real Deandre Cole.

I'm Cooper Black Italic, What Type Are YOU?

A cool nerdy thingy brought to you by the good folks at a design studio called Pentagram. This interactive quiz, hosted by an anonymous psychoanalyst of sorts, will lead you through a series of questions to figure out what font you are. I'm cooper black italic, but in my heart of hearts I've always felt a little bit more Futura. Never ever Times New Roman though, ick.

Find out what font you are. The password is character.
