Tales of an Introvert Living in an Extravert’s World

I am an introvert. That doesn’t mean that I’m shy, exactly. It’s more that I require lots of time on my own, getting lost in the world of my imagination. That’s part of what I love so much about traveling solo—it’s a perfect excuse to interact when and how I wish and then retract, replenishing myContinue reading “Tales of an Introvert Living in an Extravert’s World”

In Love With Humanity

I had written a post about something entirely different yesterday, thinking no one would mind if I published it this morning instead, but then I saw the news in Belgium: Explosions in Brussels Airport. 31 Dead, 100 Injured. Instead of posting that other blog I wrote to a friend in Belgium to see if sheContinue reading “In Love With Humanity”

Finding the Why: What I’ve Learned About Making Music Videos

Since we released MC Flow’s “Pot in the Latkes” people keep asking me for tips on shooting music videos. I’ve been hesitant to offer any advice because I didn’t study filmmaking and feel unqualified to tell anyone else how to do it.

Misogyny and Other Cock Blockers

**note from Sharisse** I originally planned to publish a blog about male feminists and how proud I am to be a part of this video for Lee’s new feminist anthem, “Boss Señorita.” Unfortunately, before I could post it, a misogynist went on a murdering spree in Santa Barbara.

Waiting For Your Big Break? Look No Further.

Everyone has heard of the elusive Big Break—that moment when an ordinary individual is handed the opportunity of a lifetime, launching them to celebrity status.

Better Late Than Never

So it turns out that touring the country, booking gigs, playing gigs, raising a child, and taking video, then editing the footage into palatable highlight videos is time consuming. And a little insane. Who knew? Well, okay, probably everyone but Lee and I, but we have tons of footage that we’re so excited to shareContinue reading “Better Late Than Never”

ROCK MY WORLD Gets a Soundtrack

Here’s an example of why it’s so handy to have a musician husband: he can write a song about my book from one of my main characters to the other.  That’s what I call a great anniversary present! Kudos, husband. I hope you’ll enjoy the song and video (recorded on tour live from North Carolina)Continue reading “ROCK MY WORLD Gets a Soundtrack”
