Hi there, stardust moonbeams! I’m currently staring out a window on a mountain and it’s GLORIOUS. The cabin across the street has like 47 wind chimes hanging along the front porch area and it’s pretty out of hand. I’m a person who loves a good wind chime — heck I even like a bad wind chime. This, though? This is out of hand. How many wind chimes do you have? What’s your wind chime limit, would you say? Like three, right? Three seems like a solid number. You get your wooden chimes, some tiny tinkling copper things, and then maybe a larger metal chime situation. Done. Anything over three it’s just, what are you trying to prove? What’s the deal?

+ This is horrific and disgusting and so terribly sad and on one hand I want to apologize for sharing it, but on the other hand I don’t have the right to do that, really. It’s the graphic story of Jackie Fuchs of The Runaways: The Lost Girls.
She told me she never thought she’d go public with her rape, but last fall, she started seeing similar stories everywhere. More than a dozen women had come forward against Bill Cosby. Kesha filed a lawsuit alleging that she had been drugged and assaulted by her producer, Dr. Luke. And there were so many undergraduate women who were finally speaking up about sexual assault. “I realized, ‘Oh my God, this is what’s happening on college campuses,’” she said.
Jackie saw herself in those young women and knew all the hurt and shame that awaited them. “They have to be making the same value judgments about themselves as I made about me,” she explained. “I know from personal experience how all those things can eat away at you. They can take vibrant young people and turn them into something else.”
