Pod Tours America with HeadCount

You’ve probably seen HeadCount register voters at concerts and music festivals. And you may have seen us in action at record stores, Ben & Jerry’s locations and rock climbing gyms (as we did across the country on National Voter Registration Day). For this autumn we were presented with a new opportunity, to set up tables for the live-tapings…

2017 marks a year of record civic engagement. More people than ever before are paying attention to politics; millions have already started marching, rallying, and contacting their elected officials.

Coming Home to the Georgia Theatre

On a recent HeadCount outing, I had the pleasure to be among the nearly 1,000 happy and adoring fans joyously singing along with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes ‘Home, let me come home-o-ome, Home is wherever I’m with you.’ And while most people were probably thinking of their significant others, it occurred to me…

Internet Explodes Over T.I.’s Sexist Voting Preferences

T.I. said that women are definitely not qualified to be president and I said yes to writing a blog about it. I thought Why Not?

Madonna Really, Really Loves Attention

Madonna goes in for the makeout session as if it’s 1992 and she can still turn a series of artsy nudes into a best-selling coffee table book and Drake reacts if he was being kissed by his least favorite Great Aunt at a night two Passover Seder his mother guilted him into attending.

Jon Stewart’s Replacement Should Not be Another White Guy

Stewart’s final show is yet undecided but that hasn’t stopped the Internet from exploding with speculation regarding the identity of his successor and after tirelessly skimming online media for answers I have emerged with only one conclusion: If (we) the people have any say in the matter—his replacement will not be a white man.

HeadCount on Jam Cruise

Jam Cruise is unlike anything that I’ve ever done. And being able to experience it with a group of like-minded HeadCounters made the sweetest musical experience even sweeter.
