Thoughts I had watching this video: “Awww, they’re wearing their seatbelts.

And the Is This Real Life? Award to Dazzlyn:

I always knew life had more meaning. 20gayteen and everywhere is shaking. Wow. If you had told me five years ago that girls singing to girls would become a norm in our media, I would have said thank you for the fantasy. And now it’s a reality. We deserve our own songs and stories too. Thank you to these artists for making us seen and represented. We are no longer invisible in music videos.

    Thank you Jebus for making download that whole segment, I knew it was gonna disappear.

    • Oh, wow. Unexpected accolades, thank you. Glad, I managed to embed that darn picture in my third attempt, so worth it! And glad to know you are Chyler Leigh’s long lost twin, queer girl… ;)
