“Flaws are ok”: Lorde tweets a natural photo of herself side by side with a Photoshopped one

Well, this is a very interesting tweet by Lorde that I just saw in my Twitter feed. I’d rather not weigh it down with unnecessary commentary, least of annoyingly self-righteous commentary. It speaks for itself, it does.

‘Song of Ireland’ hits all the right notes

Song of Ireland is a modern retelling of an ancient Celtic myth. Juilene Osborne-McKnight knows her source material well, but never lets it get in the way of the story. Complex and unpredictable, Song of Ireland offers a satisfying blend of history, myth and solid storytelling.
