Danielle Ate the Sandwich is a young singer/songwriter “gifted with an ethereal voice and the talent for writing honest observations of an ordinary world. Her melancholy and often times vulnerable songs are nicely contrasted by her humorous and engaging stage presence. Dubbed ‘Joni Mitchell meets Sarah Silverman,’ Danielle tours nationally, has licensed songs to various tv shows and significantly understands and works new media on a generational level. Denver’s Westword described Danielle as ‘cripplingly enchanting with lyrics telling the story of a generation coming of age in an age of uncertainty.’ And as the postings of 25,000 loyal subscribers to Danielle’s You Tube channel attest, she has rapidly developed an active fanbase who feel Danielle has something to say about what it means to be young in 2010.”

She sings the story of a trans friend:

(guitar version here)

She sings about gendered language:

She sings about a lot of things. Ecosystems, reincarnation, her life. And she covers a crapload of songs I have historically hated, and now (thanks, Danielle) adore.

Jenna is a thoughtful, articulate young person who’s happy with who she is. The purpose of her channel is to answer viewers’ questions about sexuality from her perspective as a lesbian.

She can also be found here, singing lovely acoustic renditions of songs I hated until I heard her sing them.

Do I ever.

I’ll just leave this here in case you ever want to make a fort with ME. ♥

You went all Zaboo on my Codex there :|

To whom it may concern:

It really bothers me how you think it’s funny when I get mad at something I believe is injustice, and how you never take me seriously, and how you accuse me of being asexual because I’m repressing my desire for you. Using asexuality as a CRUTCH?! Get over yourself.

So you’ll out me as non-hetero in an unsupportive environment, say you “don’t want to preach to me,” then offer sage advice like…

  • “It could be sisterly love.”
  • Maybe it’s your “sheltered life with just work or school all time.”
  • “Maybe you just need to spend more time with the Lord.”
  • Maybe it’s “a lack of social interaction.”
  • “It could be a mental thing.”

Oh yeah, I see how it works.

Too bad. We’re not the same person. Don’t think we are.

Bye. I can’t promise we’ll talk much anymore.

This commentary cannot be improved upon.
