MELANIE HAMLETT - Wandering Narcoleptic
Okay so I’m home sick watching old movies and just realized that THOR from Adventures In Babysitting is the guy from Law & Order Criminal Intent! Damn he was hot!

My doctor told me she’s never given a narcotic prescription for strep throat but that in my case, I need it. My throat and lymphnodes are so swollen that it would be a major concern if I didn’t “have such a large airway”(what does that mean!). Besides a high fever and aches all over, I haven’t eaten or drank water in two days cuz it’s too painful to swallow (and I spit in a disposable coffee cup like a cowboy cuz I just can’t even swallow my own spit). But now I got me some Percocet! I haven’t taken painkillers in over ten years. Someone’s gonna be talk’n nonsense here in a bit. Whoot whoot. Party time. Night night.

I know it’s time to leave taos when I don’t notice or appreciate the beauty anymore. This is the view from the backyard of my job. I’ve been looking at it since December. Sometimes I don’t even notice it though until a tourist comes in and gasps and then asks me to take a picture of them in front of it. I love Taos with all my heart. It’s my home. Always will be. It’s the place I come to heal, figure shit out, feel loved by my community/family, love them back, and get my ass kicked. Seriously, every time I come her I get my ass kicked (in a good way- the kind of way that makes me grow). But now I need to get my ass kicked in a career way, and I’m sure LA will do that.  I’m gonna miss this view. I have a month left to enjoy it, and of course, now that I’m leaving, I notice it every day and gasp like a tourist.

So I’m planning on moving to LA in October. I need to be around the comedy community again but I want to be out west and closer to Taos. I love NYC with all my heart but I don’t want to be there right now. And I love Taos dearly but my career will die here if I stay too long. So I gotta leave this state I call home and love so so much and venture out to LA for awhile. Maybe I can find a way to live in both places but who know. For now I’m trying to enjoy New Mexico as much as I can before i have to bid adieu to this insane but beautiful place. 😥😥😥😥😥💜💙💜💚❤️💛👣👣👣👣

Don’t get too high and mighty, ladies. Don’t step out of line. Don’t do anything to upset or disappoint men who feel entitled to your time, bodies, affection or attention. Your bared body can always be used as a weapon against you. You bared body can always be used to shame and humiliate you. Your bared body is at once desired and loathed.
At a music festival up in the mountains there’s A giant light bright made from black cardboard and water bottles with food coloring in them. Brilliant.

I’ll Talk About Sex in My Shows Whether You Like It Or Not, Mister.

Every single time I do a storytelling show and talk candidly about my sexual experiences (or raw or vulgar or however you want to put it), there’s always, without exception, at least one white man, usually a young entitled one, who will come up to me after the show and say “you know, if men talked about sex the way you do, they’d never get away with it.” Well men do. All the time. Go to a stand-up show sometime and listen to endless mysgenistic  bullshit, usually by newer comedians but pros too.  And then watch almost every single movie and tv show out there and realize that most of them will be talking about sex thru the filter of a man’s experience, fantasies, or ideas (the writers, the exec producers, the director, the networks).  So yeah, I’m glad I shocked you with how brutally honest i am about sex and no, I’m not sorry for speaking on behalf of women who rarely get represented in entertainment. I’m loud and proud baby. Deal with it.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

Boom. 

— From NYC.

The Brown University graduation ceremony ends with the university president tattooing this across your shoulder blades.

It does take a while.

This is smart and real.
