REVIEW: Restless: Living With Chaos

Restless: Living With Chaos is a great debut poetry collection by author Dandy Serenity. It gives us an in-depth look into the mind of the author as she navigates through major milestones in life: graduations, relationships, parental divorce, career path shifts, and everyday shenanigans. Dandy Serenity is open about mental illness in this book, and “Restless” serves as a look into what her daily life is truly like.

Now, now, full-disclosure…I’ve known Serenity for over half of my life, as we went to the same high school and quickly became writing buddies and close friends. In the (gulp!) 15 years that have followed, we’ve remained close, to the extent that she even designed a cover for me upon the release of Bad Con Adventures.

REVIEW: Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper

VERDICT: Much better at 29 than at 15
STARS: 5 out of 5

I first read Candy Girl back when it was first released, around 2005 or 2006. I was a sophomore/junior in high school, and I was intrigued by the book. I enjoyed it, but obviously a lot of it went over my head. I remember my best friend and I having to Google a lot of the terms in the book to get through it because we were so young and naive.

Rereading it as someone a month shy of 29-years-old made the book so much better. I’ve lived more, experienced more, and shed my naiveness. I have friends that are or have been sex workers, and “Candy Girl” gives a great look into WHY people start stripping (moneyyyy) and why they continue despite learning to hate the industry (again, moneyyy).

Diablo’s writing is honest, witty, and eas...

D0min0-a-g0-g0’s New Album “End” Invokes A Reflective Experience For Listeners

Producer and rapper D0min0-a-g0-g0 released the album End on January 12th, 2019, a lo-fi and hip-hop fusion that’s been well-received since its release. I sat down with the Indiana native to learn more about End, its collaborations, and what she has planned for the rest of the year.
A: First of all, congratulations on the new album! What was your inspiration for the album, and how long did you spend working on it?
D: It started early last year as a hip-hop project. I used to rap and wanted to get back into the scene. Well, the rap idea went into a lo-fi direction, and as life stresses went on, it became my only outlet… Needless to say, the inspirations came from a dark place.
A: It’s been awhile since your last album was released? How is End different than your previous work?
