Gabriella Paiella Does 2014
Hard as it may be to believe, I wrote a bunch of things other than tweets in 2014. Most of my writing before this year was food-focused — and while food is great (shout out to snacks), I honed in on what I love to cover: entertainment, humor, and sex.
I also took a critical eye to some of my favorite hate-reads, breaking down what’s behind celebrity lifestyle sites like goop and Preserve. (Hint: It’s the economy, stupid.) Speaking of hate-reads, I called out The Hunt’s tone-deaf real estate coverage with a little homage of my own.
This is as close I’m going to get to fiction writing for you all: an apocalyptic Weather.com story, Nancy Grace-inspired poetry, Anne Geddes babies I’d like to see, and a yoga routine I’d actually do. Namaste.
I made some fan art for Karl Ove Knausgaard. My fan fiction for him remains unpublished.
In the straightforward and the sentimental realm, I chatted about Broad City with my best friend (tl;dr: good job with the cunnilingus, Comedy Central), talked about some personal fuck-ups, and interviewed my absolute favorite musician.
Here’s to a productive, deranged 2015.
