Mostly-naked in a music video. Yesssss.

overdrawn


This video was SO FUN to make (and also challenging and tiring!). We wrote the song (I wrote my own verses!) and recorded it last year. (It's on Jesse's amazing most recent album.) We shot the video in December, and released it on International Women's Day. We're hoping that IWD will eventually be re-branded "Bring Your Girlfriend to Rap Day". It's a lot catchier.

Strangely, the parts of the video where I'm only wearing a sheet are the ones I am LEAST self-conscious about.

Please pass the link around to anyone who likes any of these things:
Cats
Tap dancing
Muriel Duckworth references
Costume changes
Catching leaves
Women lying on train tracks
People in hot dog costumes
Handsome bearded men
Amazing raps
Cuteness

Thanks so much, littlegirltoast, for making a rap song and video with me. I love you!

I LOVE it. You're all so cute (cats included)! I love that you're wearing your Shut Up About Babies shirt.

Also, now I want a hot dog.

That is completely brilliant. Love the little NMH quote at the end =)

Actually I'd love to read the whole lyrics if you have them anywhere.

Do you know what's enormously spooky? My friend just came over to visit and brought a movie with him for us to watch, which was Lars and the real girl.

This would not be at all spooky except in conjunction with that, but tonight in Austin, TX, was the first time since 2009 that I reunited with my friend MC Lars to perform our song "No Logo," which is what I'm referring to (as a double entendre with the delightful film) in "BYGF2RD's" lyrics.

The stars are aligning!

I love you too, homie! Thanks for putting in all the work on this song and video with me.

And on everything else, too, for six years.
