Musical Madness (Rachel Bloom seems pretty cool)

6 Apr

I’m not familiar with the show these videos are from, and to be honest, I only found out about any of this because I saw some big boobs bouncing around on my feed and that was enough to catch the caveman part of my brain and triggered further investigation.

I don’t think that’s entirely my fault. Anyways, I figured anything from a show called ‘Crazy Ex Girlfriend‘ is probably gonna have some content that suits this site. Turns out I was right.

Strangely enough, I don’t think Rachel Bloom is a crazy bitch, I think she’s just using satire to get her point across. I’m a huge fan of that approach, so she actually seems pretty awesome to me.

Yeah, ok, that’s a bit nuts but she is living proof that acting like a crazy bitch is not a permanent thing, that people can choose not to be crazy bitches.

I’m not sure if I’m supposed to masturbate angrily after watching that one or not, but I guess I’m gonna have to check out her show now.

Crazy bitch tip: if you ever catch yourself lying in your diary, it’s probably time to talk to someone about what’s going on in your life.

Awesome women: The power of vulnerability

5 Mar

Brené Brown is awesome.

Lucky for us, Ms Brown has delivered a poignant TED Talk that helps explain how she got to be so awesome.

Ms Brown is extremely intelligent, has a great sense of humour and is full of compassion. I admire her willingness to have the courage to be imperfect and vulnerable and talk about it in front of the rest of the world.

I love to see people who just ‘get it’. Brené Brown had to fight herself to get there, but get there she did. And now over 16 million people have watched her explain how she got there. It’s well worth the 20 minutes.

Crazy bitch tip: numbing yourself to life is no way to enjoy it.

Malala Yousafzai is awesome

21 Feb

If you haven’t heard of Malala Yousafzai, you are in for a surprise. Malala is a seriously awesome human being. Malala stood up in the face of terrorists who were angry at her outspoken demands for education and rights. They shot her in the face. Even that didn’t stop her.

You might think that the act of standing up to armed terrorists is something I’d rank as the actions of a crazy bitch. Nope! Having a hissy fit because your parents bought you a brand new car for your birthday but it’s not your favourite colour is the type of thing I think of as crazy bitch activity. Standing up for your rights and the rights of everyone around you in the face of extreme danger to yourself is, as far as I’m concerned, an unbelievably heroic act. It’s an act of pure courage and selflessness.

This video outlines Malala’s story.

Here’s what her father has to say about her, and the rights she is fighting for.

And here she is accepting the Nobel Peace Prize.

This young woman is the opposite of a crazy bitch. Malala is an extraordinary human being who has fought in the face of adversity to improve the lives of people all around the world. I suspect we have seen only the start of her efforts.

Crazy bitch tip: Instead of idolizing women who celebrate consumption and avoid learning, pay more attention to women like Malala.
