Shrill shares a truth that many fat girls discover as they become grown-ass women: Life goes on whether you’re fat or not.

Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas Take Mariner to New Heights

I don’t recall exactly how I uncovered the album Mariner last year, a long distance collaboration between Swedish post-metal band Cult of Luna and local NYC vocalist, Julie Christmas.
