7: Most Annoying Phrases, Fled Cruz and Winter Storm Uri, Clubhouse
What's a phrase people say all the time that you hate? We "did a thing" and got feedback LIVE on air! And friend of the show Shane brings some Los Angeles sunshine to the panel this week! It's happening again: people continue to cause destruction by celebrating their unborn babies' genitals via explosion (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/22/nyregion/gender-reveal-explosion-ny.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&fbclid=IwAR3nWVRY6GwD8PNfC_OIEcIWfdK0wndKgydtFgkKiqq0-_RAsJAU-M0Tdo8) . Do we wish ill on anyone? No. Do we care that Rush Limbaugh died? Also no. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is under fire after the state Attorney General released a report indicating that Cuomo's office underreported the number of COVID-related nursing home deaths. Can we sympathize with his position? Winter Storm Uri has devastated much of the southern and middle United States. Particularly in Texas, where the power grid has been deregulated for two decades because dErEGuLaTiOn MeAnS fREedOm.  As if the human and infrastructure toll wasn't bad enough, consumers are now having to fight power bills for tens of thousands of dollars (https://www.forbes.com/sites/jonathanponciano/2021/02/20/17000-electric-bill-deregulated-power-grid-texas-griddy/?sh=3c725cc258ba) . Flyin' Cruz, Cancun Cruz, Fled Cruz: how many names can we come up with for a Senator for abandoning his state in the middle of a crisis? Meanwhile, AOC and Beto O'Rourke have picked up the slack for Ted to show Texans what real leadership looks like. Remember, Texas: y'all can vote this fucker out in 2024. Dolly Parton says "thanks, but no thanks" to a Tennessee state Capitol proposal for a statue of her likeness. Do we allow smartphone apps to track us? We don't think so... but maybe, kinda sorta. Can we just get a villain origin story that doesn't try to humanize the villain for once? Clubhouse: what we like, what we're confused about, and whether or not you're missing out by not having early access. We've got a little bit of everything in this week's recommendations: Follow @NASAPersevere for the adventures of a real-life Wall-E (Andrew), Gino's pizza in Atlanta (Laura), Silicone popcorn poppers (Pam), and 'The Warmth of Other Suns' by Isabel Wilkerson (Shane).   And in this week's installment of After Dark, available on Patreon: What the hell did Armie Hammer do, and how does it relate to online dating? Will someone this rich and connected actually face consequences for his actions? We cover some of our Patrons' cringiest online dating stories, and they remind us of a few of our own.

Bringing Art to Life: An Interview with Artist, Nicholas Wilton
Have you struggled with integrating the various aspects of your day to day into a workflow that respects your responsibilities AND your passion for art? How do you avoid burning out and feeling like you’ve wasted too much of your life? If you’ve ever wondered if there was a way to truly bring your art to all aspects of your life - you’ve come to the right place! Here to help me dive into this critical topic that burdens so many of us is my friend and fellow artist, Nicholas Wilton. Hailing from San Francisco, California, Nicholas studied art at the College of Creative Studies in Santa Barbara and then went on to receive his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Wilton’s paintings are seen in yearly gallery exhibitions, International Art Fairs, and are included in numerous private and corporate collections in both the United States and Europe. Nicholas is also the founder of Art2Life, an online platform that strives to build, empower, and inspire the creative community. I can’t wait for you to get to know my engaging and insightful friend as he helps us explore what it really means to bring our art to life - you don’t want to miss it! What is ART2LIFE? Thousands of artists listen to and believe this lie every day and they walk away from the passion and energy that set them on their creative path - what is the lie? You aren’t good enough. You’ll never make it. No one wants to buy your art. Only the supremely talented can make any money off of their art. Do any of these lines sound familiar? What if there was a way to silence those lies that swirl around and re-train your mindset? With his Art2Life program, Nicholas strives to build, empower, and inspire the creative community. Nicholas wants to flip the script and help us shift our focus away from competition to sharing. His program is all about finding what inspires and brings you joy, and making art that is more and more like yourself. The process of becoming yourself If you’ve been around the Savvy Painter community for very long, you know that I am passionate about empowering artists like you to fully realize your potential and chase after your dreams. It’s been so encouraging to meet and speak with artists like Nicholas who have dedicated their lives to their craft but to also helping others discover the joy of creative fulfillment. If you find yourself wondering if you’ll ever be able to talk about your art like Nicholas does - STOP! Remember, this isn’t about who you can be most like, it’s about discovering the real YOU. Give yourself patience and space to continue the process of discovery - we are all works in progress! Pay attention to your energy and mindset While it might sound silly, the truth is, the energy you bring to your studio matters. Maybe for you, it is all about that cup of coffee or maybe it’s about getting in an early morning run - the actions we take before we decide to sit down and create can have a huge impact on our artwork! As you continue to explore this critical topic with Nicholas, I encourage you to begin paying attention to what you are doing, why you are doing it, and how it is impacting your creative process - the result might surprise you!

Gay Paris w/ Mélissa Laveaux - Ep. 172
What's 'The City Of Lights' like for les lesbians? Canadian singer-songwriter Mélissa Laveaux has spent the last 13 years living in gay ol' Paris and has some THOUGHTS. Mélissa takes us on a journey from her Canadian and Hatian roots, to her fatphobic immigration experience, to experiences with relationships and racism, and more. She pulls back the curtain on common misconceptions about French culture and life in the big city we love (despite our many critiques and questionable experiences). Plus, Carolyn and Melody blow off some steam after online attacks from Gen Z queers. And finally, we end with a question that digs up our past rebound trauma.
