You guys, first of all, a friendly PSA from yours truly – don’t eat an entire package of tortellini before bed since it says to use or freeze by that day, because your dreams will turn into a Yorgos Lanthimos movie – there were black cats and one white kitten who had somehow broken into my apartment, box cutter-wielding people hanging out menacingly by swimming pools, and (perhaps most terrifyingly) a flying bedazzled hat which kept biting me like a duck, and which could open locked doors and windows to continue doing that.

Wow, another Sad Girl Taste Test so soon after last week’s 7-11 Thanksgiving chips despair?! I mean, to be fair, the current political climate makes me feel like technically everything could be considered a Sad Girl Taste Test, but tax bills and sex offenders aside, the catalyst for the SGTT I’m about to discuss with […]

I bet a lot of you ate a lot of really great Thanksgiving food last week. You might’ve gotten into political arguments with your shithead relatives, but at least there was ample turkey, right?! Well, I am not part of the well-fed tribe. I did not eat Thanksgiving dinner this year. You: “Oh, tight! Were […]

I bet a lot of you ate a lot of really great Thanksgiving food last week. You might’ve gotten into political arguments with your shithead relatives, but at least there was ample turkey, right?! Well, I am not part of the well-fed tribe. I did not eat Thanksgiving dinner this year.

You: “Oh, tight! Were you like, hunger striking because 2017 sucks so hard or something?”
Me: “No, my mom came to visit.”
You: “Wait, what?”

I know. A parental visit should equate to copious amounts of home-cooked and/or restaurant-cooked Thanksgiving bounty being consumed, but you might not have met ...

Welcome back to another weekend, you guys! And I would venture to say it is MUCH needed considering the trash fire that is our country, and our planet, at this stage of 2017.

Welcome back to another weekend, you guys! And I would venture to say it is MUCH needed considering the trash fire that is our country, and our planet, at this stage of 2017. Personally, I’m amped that The Craft will be screening at Metrograph, ’cause if one thing makes ALL of the things better, it’s some good old fashioned witchcraft-based female empowerment, AMIRITE?! Before we get into details about that and everything else, here’s some stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week if you were trying not to have a full-blown existential panic attack LOL!

My love for Australia has always been more or less unbridled, but I could never let myself fully get lost in the passion due to a little thing called marriage inequality. BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was […]

Best Australian Spots In NYC To Celebrate Marriage Equality Down Under

Source: Brightest Young Things NYC

There has been increasingly less to celebrate when it comes to 2017 developments, but if there’s one thing we can latch onto, it’s the news out of Australia this week; 61.6% of the population voted yes on the long-debated issue of marriage equality, meaning the pathway is now clear for official legislation to take hold. And if that’s not something to jump up and down about, I don’t know what is! Straya is a long way from NYC, but you can still be there in spirit at any one of these great spots:

BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was always meant to be. And so our GIF theme for this weekend will be none other than Kath & Kim (the OG version, not the bullshit American failure w/ Selma Blair and Molly Shannon), which is pretty much my favorite piece of Australian television (apart ...

Ohhhhh November 8th. How you like to go from sixty to zero! After last year’s horrific unfolding of events, today seemed like THE most appropriate time to do a new Sad Girl Taste Test. So, naturally, I went to 7-11.

My polling spot is around the corner from a 7-11, which is how I even realized that Stuffed Waffles were a thing in the first place. There’s a giant sign in the window advertising them for $2.49 each, right next to the sign that says the store will be open on Thanksgiving Day. (I’m telling you…there has never been a ...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, MOTHERFUCKERS! (I mean “motherfuckers” as a term of absolute endearment, PS.)
