The Pickety Witch — Revue Is Sunsetting.

Revue is dissolving at the end of the year. I love the platform a lot, but I don't know how much longer I would have remained with Musk at the helm anyway. This means that we'll be migrating to a new home. I'm still in the process of deciding where that will …


The Pickety Witch — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

I get asked a lot about how I deal with imposter syndrome. It's a problem among any profession, but runs rampant in artist circles, and professional writing is no different. Answering such a thing on Twitter is kind of complicated in a limited word count, but…


The Pickety Witch — what the fuck do we do now?

Go here:


The Pickety Witch — I'm fcking tired

It's from a little bit ago, but since I don't do this weekly anymore sometimes I like to save nice things. Mostly because if you have a uterus everything is fucking infuriating 10000% of the time because a lot of people "care" but do nothing and secretly thin…


The Pickety Witch — Super Soft

There are more pictures on my Instagram if you're, like, super invested in super soft shenanigans. I baked so many freaking cupcakes, lol.


The Pickety Witch — New Beginnings

Fancy parties are weird. I went to one. I didn't spontaneously combust, despite it being a remarkably stressful day. But most importantly can we please revel at the fact that perspective makes me (the shortest) look like I'm taller than everyone else in our l…


The Pickety Witch — Year One.

First and foremost, the newsletter isn't going anywhere! But it is changing its cadence. Shout out to everyone who participated in the survey I sent out. Your answers were hugely helpful both in terms of making this particular decision and shaping future cont…


The Pickety Witch — Welp.

As you've undoubtedly heard, things have escalated in the Ukraine. I'm going to let foreign policy experts continue to do the reporting and provide detailed explanations on that, and I hope you'll do the same. But I did want to talk about somethings that you …


The Pickety Witch — Bar Writing

Got thoughts on the newsletter? Gimme! Seriously though, I want to be sure that I'm making something valuable to y'all! If you'd take a couple minutes to fill out this handy dandy google form I'd be eternally grateful!


The Pickety Witch — The Uncharted Superb Owl

So, plot twist: The Uncharted Movie is good actually? It's not reinventing the wheel, but if anyone ever expected it to that's kinda on them. It's silly fun, and Tati Gabrielle rules. She was also an absolute doll to chat with. Find out where our favorite bad…


The Pickety Witch — Something To Distract From Oscar Noms

Last week we watched both Moonfall and Jackass Forever. One is the highest form of slapstick and knows exactly what it is. The other takes itself violently seriously while asking the question "what would happen if the moon suddenly started getting closer to e…


The Pickety Witch - Issue #50

I suppose I shall leave you with this before I go:


The Pickety Witch — Get Practical

There's never a wrong time to learn about The Janes, but as Republicans across the country try to take down Roe v. Wade, now it's especially pertinent. Now please join me in a group scream session. Then feel free to join me in continuing to throw money at Pla…


The Pickety Witch — King.

We're rolling right into some baby steps today. MLK day was yesterday, but this newsletter goes out on Tuesdays, and it turns out everyone getting the day off didn't solve systemic racism. Call your senator (202-224-3121) and tell them to pass the Freedom to …


The Pickety Witch — Vacation's What I Wanna Do

So follow her. This week's spotlight is on Joi Childs. Fun fact (and one I certainly didn't know when I started as an editor): it can be hard to get marginalized freelancers to trust you when you're a white editor with little to no background. When I got my f…


The Pickety Witch — New Year, Same Me

First, it feels important that everyone cry their way through this with me.


The Pickety Witch — It's a Top 10, Witch (and some updates)

I also wrote and narrated this:


The Pickety Witch — Best Shows of 2021

IDK, y'all. Kyle Rittenhouse got celebrated by a bunch of voting members of our democracy yesterday. They gave him his own entrance music. If you think it's time to give up, please good gods remember that they aren't stopping anytime soon. We have a lot of sh…


The Pickety Witch — Top 10 Cha — ok it's a Spider-Man review

🚨🚨🚨Here are ways to help the citizens of Kentucky🚨🚨🚨


The Pickety Witch — Biggest Surprises of 2021

A B movie has to be fricken great for me to be on board. Psycho Goreman is an absolute delight from start to finish. Belligerent and often downright unlikeable Mimi is a breath of fresh air, and PG and his Hunky Boys are just wonderful. It's weird. They have …
