I Just Get So Many Fan Letters!

Ms. Kirkman has apparently blocked my Twitter account although I have never posted anything there that contained insult, criticism or derogatory comments directed towards her or anyone else. If she does not care to read anything that I have written, I certainly do not care to read anything that she has written - nor do I care to listen to her podcast or ever again spend money to see her perform live.

Sincerely,

[name redacted]

Boehner gets shy on the dance floor. 
But even the casual atmosphere couldn’t coax Boehner to bust a move as the band played its last song for the night, Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.”
Several bargoers reportedly stood up to dance, and for a moment, “It looked like Mr. Boehner was going to dance with us,” said one local. “He stood up and started to dance a little bit, but as people started shooting video he and the Secret Service made their escape.” - TheHill.com
This article about John Boehner ALMOST dancing to Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” at a bar in San Diego is the best political story of the day, the week!
I could never be in politics because I need to be free to dance to Zep as I see fit without voters judging me. Maybe what this country needs is a Speaker of the House who DOES dance to Led Zeppelin…..
One thing is for sure - it’s nearly impossible to dance to “Whole Lotta Love” so I think JB made a decision that even I can get behind.

Another AMAZING Letter From a Podcast “Fan”

Hello world!
I’ve made it clear in all 72 of my FREE episodes of “I Seem Fun” that I record alone, in my room, on an app and I can’t edit nor pause. Sometimes I take a beat and do something else for maybe ten seconds. It’s become (I think) part of a weird charm that happens maybe once an episode. Also it’s free.

One fan had a breakdown apparently about this very thing which is about 2% of every FREE 72 episodes so far.

I can’t just keep gold like this to myself.  I wanted to share. This is but one of the emails people feel compelled to write to a grown woman. xo

Dear Jen kirkman,

I am super butt hurt that you think so little of the fans who love you most, you think it’s okay to take and answer texts in mid podcast and leave us in dead silence. Why are you ignoring us while you are recording a podcast that is ostensibly for us? Are we supposed to be that loyal? Why would you not hit pause on the recording? Or put your phone away for one hour? And maybe wait to record till you have an idea instead of recording several minutes of “I don’t know what to talk about.”
I feel like you can’t think very much of us if you think we are so bored and dumb we’ll listen to you silently texting. Way lame, dude. This may be the end of a beautiful friendship, I don’t know when or if I’ll tune in again.

Emma
