I can't tell if I'm more of a Fareed or a Sanjay.
My dome can't compute that kind of technique.
Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

Real career dilemma: I wanted to be a political writer like Fareed Zakaria of CNN yet ended up as a doctor not unlike Sanjay Gupta, except unsuccessful. Gupta does occasional 60 Minutes appearances.

Georgia Dome is a pun on lady in a ton of hip-hop songs.

No flashes. We flew too close to the Soledad Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

Was supposed to be upskirts/flashing pun but also about real no cameras rule on the studio tour

Money ain't a thang, sayeth Jermaine Dupri.
A jump from washed feet is a so-so death, sayeth Maureen
Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

JD owns So So Def, washed feet is about Holy Thursday servility and not killing yourself over your own sins even if you think you deserve it — how is such a selfish act closer to the God? Or is your God at the top of that largest free-standing escalator in the world, in the real CNN studio on the 7th floor? (Seven means heaven, which is convenient. I used to be really into numerology.)

Usher's father isn't not Ben Vereen.
Scooter Braun knows who the father is, I guess?
Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

Everybody knows he is. Also a joke about Usher and Braun (Bieber’s “swagger” coach) “fathering” Bieber’s career. As I “mother” the narrative and smother the boy.

The escalator is Jane Fonda's legs. Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

She has famously good legs (workouts!) but more about American patrician culture and social climbing, which is her true art

Whereever Tom Joad is in the food court, I'll be there. Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

Meme speech from the movie adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath, which stars Henry Fonda (note references upcoming to Fonda’s daughter Jane, who married Ted Turner). So hero of great narrative versus me as heroine of piddling narrative.

Self-deprecating remark about how horrible it is to compare minimal boredom and suffering to life in the Dust Bowl. I had been reading a New Yorker about America’s new Dust Bowl, the San Joaquin Valley. In Atlanta I spent a ton of time thinking about personal disaster as natural disaster, because I was reminded I hope one day to report on medicine in the North Dakota Bakken. I had hoped to teach in the San Joaquin Valley until Teach for America didn’t place anybody there that year, which is how I ended up in New York.

And no one's getting funkdafied except Da Brat Inside CNN Studios by MoMilli 25

“And no one’s getting fat except Mama Cass”

Cass Elliot is a powerful female role model. Da Brat seemed like a powerful Atlanta woman when I watched her on All That as a child, though I hated most of that show as a child because everybody else liked it and they weren’t old enough to watch In Living Color which was way better years before but I did anyway

RE “mixed messages” (“hot and cold”)

1) High school classmate said that when he hooked up with my friend at my sweet 16, which was beta male of him

2) Only into John Denver on The Muppet Show but I’ve been dying to use that joke and it’s about listening to peaceful, cheerful music to stop yourself from wishing you could die already

As the child of an AL East family, I grew up hating the Nineties Atlanta Braves. As a child of the Guitar Mass movement, I grew up loving “Turn, Turn, Turn!” The Byrds are pretty chill.
