Alison and I have circled many of the same people and scenes for awhile now, it was great to finally meet her. All of the kind words I had heard and the voice I saw on her instagram- uplifting, confident and unashamed, were totally confirmed. I really enjoyed our conversation about body acceptance and fat-phobia. Take a look.Read More

And, while I don’t really feel the need to shine any more light on this one, Joshua Harris apparently made an entire documentary about how foolish I Kissed Dating Goodbye was. You know, in case you wanted to hate watch a treatise on christian dating. Personally I continue to prefer the resource list recommended by Sex Positive Families.
And as it turns out- Steve Martin did hand out business cards to gawkers and passerby. American treasure.
