Episode 23 - Too Many Cucumbers

Amy Schumer is back on our radar with her new movie trailer! We're trying to reserve judgement until we see the actual film, but I Feel Pretty seems pretty problematic. 

A "shock photography" art piece by Eric Ravelo *** from about 2013 has been making the rounds again.  The piece is meant to bring to harsh light some of the worst ways in which children are victimized including gun violence in American schools, pedophilia, sex trafficking, war and... obesity? One of the images, clearly commenting on the "obesity epidemic", feels extremely out of place in this piece. 

*** the linked images are pretty disturbing so please click with caution! 

OK, on to some more positive stuff! Janelle Monae continues to kill the game with her newest work. She's released two songs (Make Me Feel and Django Jane) from yet to have a release date next album, Dirty Computer. I mean, they're just great. 

Our girl Keala Settle KILLED on the Oscars.  Her song didn't win (but SHOULD have!) but she totally brought the house down with her performance of This is Me. We can't wait to see what she does next! 

NEDA is doing great things to support individuals and families affected by eating disorders including spotlighting their campaign with National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.  This years theme was "Let's Get Real" and their goal was "to expand the conversation and highlight stories we don't often hear." Head on over to them for help and support and to get involved with great organization.
