10 Things: Unmissable Artists at Bumbershoot 2016

This year’s Seattle Center music festival marks my second rodeo, but there are still many firsts to be had. Today, Seattle’s gargantuan end-of-Summer music fest kicks off, and just like last time I’m in disbelief of all the high quality live music I get to witness. I didn’t think that Bumbershoot 2016 could come close

10 THINGS: Perfectly Valid Reasons to Break-Up

[PHOTO: Philip and I back in 2010, three years before our split. (Yes, I wore a relaxer and the Victoria’s Secret PINK collection back then).] If this article comes off a little too dark, edgy, free-spirited, or pessimistic..I don’t know what to tell you. It’s Winter? Fuck off? This article is for anyone who’s going through a

10 Things: Bumbershoot Artists I Just Can’t Miss

Get to know new WOHM writer Jenni Moore through her list of artists to watch at Bumbershoot 2015. It might astonish some of you that I’m a writer for WOHM even though I don’t identify as a “hip-hop head” by any means. In all honesty, I’ve only been heavily listening to hip-hop and rap music

10 Things: Projects to Geek Out To

With the release of albums like D’Angelo’s “Black Messiah” and Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly,” 2015 has shown it still pays to make multi-layered, nerd-out-friendly projects. A little over halfway through the year, here are 10 Northwest releases worth listening to, not just all the way through, but on repeat and often:

10 Things: Terrible Arguments Against Same Sex Marriage

“Live and Let Live” – Catharine Sedgwick “People just need to mind their business.” – My Mother After years of addressing it at the state level, the US Supreme Court issued a ruling this morning that individual states may not deny same-sex marriages – which I think we mostly agree can now simply be called,

10 THINGS: That Show Your Insecurities

As an 80’s baby, I must admit that these 20-teen years are throwing me for a loop. The older I get, the less the current trends make sense. Some of my friends have even taken to calling me Old Man Mac… A name I’m working on accepting. I won’t lie, I had to get over my

10 THINGS: That Made The News In 2014

As an adult, I usually find myself in December wondering where the year went. This year was different for me though – maybe for you as well – as I end the year feeling like, “Finally!” Maybe it’s the newly acquired speed of news cycles driven by social media fervor, or maybe it was the

10 Things: NW Summer Slaps

When’s the last time we did a 10 Things? I am really not sure, but you gon’ learn today! Easily one of the best summers of NW music ever, I’d be truly remissed if I didn’t ensure that we ran down the top songs of the season. Because I’m feeling feisty, I’m even going to

10 THINGS: You Can Do For The #SummertimeKickback

This Summertime Kickback is shaping up to be a rather dope event. Sponsored and organized by WOHM, Hip Hop Junkies & Booty and Bass, the event – fueled mostly via social media and word of mouth – has picked up support from organizations like KBOO, The NW Breakout Show, Poorboys, & Slim Goods. We’re planning

10 Things: Rappers Should Do Instead of Arguing on Facebook

Portland’s hip-hop scene, in many ways, mirrors the rest of the art scenes in the city. There’s an overabundance of talented emerging artists, many of whom have the same afflictions. Mainly, a need for discipline and business sense. Or, as some would say, a need to stop bullshitting. As a writer, I’m certainly guilty (see:
