  • Happy tears behind my sunglasses at @alabama_shakes set at @summerstage #
  • Can't wait for @alabama_shakes! (@ Central Park - The Bandshell) #
  • Gonna watch Battle Royale again with @corvida. I can't imagine ever being with someone who didn't enjoy watching & discussing movies. #
  • Interesting! TY for sharing this. “@ProducerMatthew: Vatican hires American journalist to help media relations -” #
  • .@critiques4geeks Cool! I'll be meeting up with @Jewyorican and @corvida and bringing my sister from cali! Let's all connect. :D in reply to critiques4geeks #
  • I don't understand it when people attempt to belittle or censor my passion about something. It's not cool 2 not care. I'm glad I give a fuck #
  • .@Idit @aburak xD in reply to Idit #
  • .@JuddApatow I do the same thing. My media consumption level is insane. But I still manage to function so it's all good :) in reply to JuddApatow #
  • I'm going to see @Alabama_Shakes tomorrow at @Summerstage. For free! I <3 NYC so, 8 years later & it all feels like my living room. #
  • Everyone is @ a mermaid parade or a beach & I'm like sheeit y'all, my couch feels gooder than hell. Squidbillies then tonight I'll go out :) #
  • spongebob here “@mensahdemary: saturday morning cartoons with Transformers on Netflix” #
  • Up all night watching Fellini Satyricon = feel like I inhaled hella bath salts. #
  • Debauchery ftw @GetGlue #FelliniSatyricon #
  • Just watched The Christine Jorgensen Story on Netflix. I've been watching many docs about trans identity lately. #
  • thanks chica <3 “@goodglobalcitiz: FF some my fav smart women: @thesciencebabe @dcap @Dayna_Dion @collazoprojects @wendycarrillo @pnemcova” #
  • "The word 'trans' implies a broad spectrum of identities through which we pass, thousands of them perhaps" - Gendernauts doc #
  • .@shananaomi this one is pretty good #
  • .@shananaomi there's plenty of stuff re: her winning the Pulitzer for it but I haven't seen any bts profiles w/her commentary. in reply to shananaomi #
  • .@sganim You are an inspiration. As a media professional and abuse survivor, I thank you for your professionalism and courage. #Sandusky #
  • Let #Sandusky be a lesson that white pedophiles can't rape black/poc boys w/out eventually being caught. Whiteness won't always save you. #
  • #Sandusky verdict=hopefully serve as lesson 4 other pedophiles who think they will never be caught. It may take yrs but your time will come. #
  • And why I say it's over, I mean the speculation can end now. #Sandusky was deemed guilty by a jury. But the healing process is far from over #
  • #Sandusky is guilty! 442 yrs wd be max. 10 accusers+his own son. It's over. There is some justice in the world. Thoughts with his victims. #
  • #Sandusky #039;s depravity extended beyond the 10+ victims to his own adopted son. If he's acquitted/walks away from this ... I just can't. #
  • Even #Sandusky #039;s adopted son came forward and said he had been abused, a fact that the jury didn't know about since it's recent info. #
  • You betcher butt I'm waiting for the Jerry Sandusky verdict. All digital channels pointed to this topic. Will be announced in 20 min or so. #
  • I'm going to the "She Shall Lead Idea Hackathon" via @eventbrite #

  • An expat's POV RT @maraegypt: What's happening in #Egypt ? Honestly? Not a lot! #

  • Da bears. <3 I like that Netflix uses the word "hirsute" to describe this film. @GetGlue #BearNation #
  • Netflix can be kind of unpredictable though, like a drunk friend who blurts weird things. No, chica. Antichrist is NOT like Born in Flames. #
  • I think the Netflix app is mad at me for temp switching to Amazon Prime :/ I'm sorry baby it didn't mean anything & I'm back now. #
  • Wow. Amazon Prime and Google TV is the worst streaming combo I've ever experienced. Can't even access instant videos now. Back to Netflix. #

  • Found outlet at #G4C12 to charge my phone. Success! Brain is on fire. Thanks everyone for the stimulating debate, discussion. Rad keynote. #
  • 2/2 Schools like Quest2Learn that incorporate gaming shd be the standard for public schools if we want to compete in global economy #G4C12 #
  • I changed learning process by graduating from HS early; traditional schooling didn't work 4 me. Gaming in schools=huge potential 1/2 #G4C12 #

  • Now at #G4C12 Games & Cultural Spaces, a series of talks covering intersection of games & cultural settings. Power of live games next. #
  • Often tech that NYC kids carry in pockets is better than tech in the classroom. How to ethically leverage that to enhance learning? #g4c12 #

  • #sweatshop game should be required component at design/fashion programs :) #g4c12 cc @thenewschool #
  • Interesting. #sweatshop game mechanics reward you for exploiting workers but then u see human cost. Reminds me of Sims gameplay. #g4c12 #
  • #sweatshop game trailer reminded me of Cafe Waitress. Kids play "tough job" RPGs, so how to connect IRL action/activism to gameplay? #g4c12 #
