Sup young squidbillies! We have new music!!
Check out the “exclusive premiere”of our new TERROR EP over on firstLSNR! 
“With the release of their TERROR EP, The Squids have taken this sound a step further, introducing a new level of production that allows for their music to come across stronger and smoother.
The clarity created by the EP’s production is evident from the get-go. TERROR’s opening track, “Hello Nurse,” builds for more than forty seconds before splashing into a culmination of sun-soaked vocals and jangly guitar chords. A driving drum line pushes swirling guitar riffs as the track closes with a simplicity that strays away from any muddiness brought about by The Squids’ lo-fi aesthetic.
The EP’s two remaining tracks, “Damn Dude” and “Watermelon,” display TERROR’s evolved production with their stop-and-go interludes. As a range of elements comes in and out of the songs, a subtly intricate layer of instrumentation presents itself; each instrument finds enough space to pull the songs together, balancing the tracks’ moments of suspension with instances of genuine garage pop.”
We recorded these songs ourselves with tucci love and care at our place in highland park, please share with your loved ones and mortal enemies. We love you yaaaaay!

Took some artistic liberties last night with my new Sim, “Jessica Splooshy” of the Splooshy family. I purchased the Sims “Island Vacation” & was feeling a little WILD so I gave my girl some like, Frida Kahlo vibes. She walks around barefoot everywhere & aspires to be a celebrity psychic. I know what you’re thinking, but I don’t need saving.  #thesims3 #eatcraylove High-res

There’s a change.org petition going around that is asking for Comedy Central to give me my own spot after The Daily Show! People keep bringing it up to me and it’s like, a strange thing to ignore (for the sole purpose of being politically correct). SO I want to like, take a moment and say thank you to those that created it and signed it. That is unbelievably nice of you. And I am so very very honored to like, even be a person that some people would consider a candidate to slip into that 11:30 spot. (sounds like sex!)

That being said, I’m sure Comedy Central already has something dope in the works to take that particular spot (teehee sex again!) after the Daily Show. I’m sure it will be great and funny and wonderful! I can’t wait to see what it is.

BUT whatever happens with that slot, just know that I appreciate your support. Also know that right now I am in the middle of creating and working on some VERY dope things. Not necessarily the exact way that you lovelies have envisioned it, maybe something, dare I say it- ESPECIALLY & MAGNIFICENTLY DOPER. Y’all shall see soon, ya hear?!

Not that you are defined by you ethnicity or gender, but you truly are an inspiration for young black females who aspire to create and think independently. I myself am a 17 year old black women who enjoys to write and perform but I feel discouraged often by the lack of chances for a black actress or comedienne. However, watching you kick fucking ass gets me pumped and you should know that. I love you dude!

Thank you so much! Hey look, I know how you feel about feeling discouraged, BUT look at what’s so great about that: This means there are SO many stories untold that are just waiting for you to tell them. And the internet is fantastic because now, you can put up whatever shit you like. Good luck, and find whatever shit you want to talk about and just do it. Excited for you bb!
