GetFamiliar Episode 3 D. Horton

This #GetFamiliar episode was different! We got to chat with D. Horton while recording in the studio. The conversation was lovely! D. Horton: “It’s just like me… sitting down with myself and saying “Okay how does this make you feel?” and being honest with it, being transparent I think a lot of people who have been going out fighting and going through so many traumatic experiences from a pandemic to like … (pause) you have to be able to sit down and say, “where am I?

P-Valley is DOPE, Fake Ass Mississippi Accents and All

Just think about this..(slight spoilers, btw) When P-Valley first comes on, you are kind of paying attention but you are kind of doing other shit.

I hurriedly opened my iPad to see if I could find it. My heart swelled with joy as I realized I could actually watch three days early.

This week’s episode had all the trappings of a horror movie: a creepy house, ghosts, ne’er-do-well neighbors, and a ritual goat-killing. I had several, “Dis tew much,” moments.
