Stop defending assholes who don’t need defending This was a twitter rant this morning, if you prefer it in twitter form it’s available here: https://twitter.com/i/moments/838062488822366210 If you prefer it in essay form, here you go: Dear white folks who want to argue Casey Affleck with me… Please read this first as I’m tired of saying … Continue readingCasey Affleck is an Asshole
White people and our obsession with labels. Hello, my name is Erynn and I’m white. Oh I know, you don’t see colour. Well, I’m sure you believe that. I’m going to keep talking about it though because whether you see it or not, it’s there. Is ‘white’ an insufficient introduction?

No one hates white women as much as they hate themselves.

The revamp has been on-going (really, not-going) … Continue readingArtist’s Website

The site will be going through a little bit of a redesign as I move things around. Please be patient with me!
I have been extremely lazy about posting. But that should be obvious, as my last post was nine months ago. Truth be told I felt somewhat disheartened over the winter. It happens to all of us at times. And it happened to me. I can blame many things, but at the end of the list … Continue readingLazy Days
There’s been a discussion recently in the theatre community, the discussion of social media and it’s integration into what we do. There have been many great points presented, from both sides, that of marketing and spreading awareness, word of mouth; and that of tradition and respect for the art, and whether or not you can … Continue readingTweet Seats – A View From The Stage
