Hi, I’m Brittany. Thanks for stopping by. (I’m thankful for any reader who isn’t a blood relative.) I started this blog in 2008 when I was a sophomore at Kent State. Since then, it’s become a crazy, sporadic montage of my life, with occasional musings on the future of journalism and why men are so difficult to understand.
I’m a twentysomething writer living in Cleveland, by way of a small city in the middle of the state no one has ever heard of. I’m the associate editor of Alternative Press, a national music magazine based in Cleveland. When I was 15, I read my first issue of Alternative Press and immediately fell in love. Also when I was 15, I saw “Almost Famous.” Both of these factors contributed to my decision to become a music journalist. I wish I could say it was something more prolific that led to this major life choice, but all it took was a magazine cover featuring the All-American Rejects and a fictional groupie named Penny Lane.
A few other bits: I love Led Zeppelin, Bill Clinton, champagne and F. Scott Fitzgerald. I have an unhealthy obsession with Hello Kitty, Ryan Gosling and fried chicken. I have an equally unhealthy hatred of vegans, Bob Dylan, and the Browns.
My goal in life is to stop the presses. I hear it’s quite thrilling.
