What prompted the idea of Tinder Live?

Lane says "I came up with it right when I first started using dating apps years ago and I was like, "Wait, so many of these profiles are hilarious and/or nightmares, it would be so cool if I did a comedy show where I riffed on the worst profiles in real time, and the audience could choose how I swipe, and then I'll talk to the weirdest people and just go down the rabbit hole for this totally improvised experience we all share together." And my roommates were like "You have to make that a show." And I immediately went to work on it, and people loved it immediately, which is awesome."


I recently attended one of Lane's Tinder Live shows in Brooklyn and it was so hysterical that I'm going again! If you're in the area - come to the show with me on August 20th at Littlefield in Brooklyn!!

Have you ever had someone’s profile show up when they were attending your show? (If not, what would you do - I am dying to hear this response)

"Oh absolutely, it's always fun and I encourage people to tell me if they pop up so I can ask them what their experience has been like. People know it's a kind, silly show so I've had people who are like "OMG i heard i was on it that's so cool can you send me a video? I wish I'd been there!" which is awesome."

I asked Lane: What has your favorite show (location, crowd, etc.) been and why?

That's what i love about tour, and about the show, is that every show is totally improvised, and localized, so every show is different. I do really love playing colleges though because the energy of like 1,000 college kids looking at their classmates is really beautiful and insane.

What is the absolute weirdest encounter you have had through a dating app? (Oh the stories I could tell)

"Once at my live show i talked to a guy who claimed he was a werewolf for like 45 minutes straight, on stage, it was amazing."

That is literally the most amazing thing I have ever heard. Ever.

How do you feel about our society primarily using dating apps? Do you prefer them / hate them? (I personally hate them with a burning passion)

Lane says: "I'd definitely rather meet in person, I think most of us would. So many people have been harassed and had their time wasted and just weird messages on there for sure, and one of the greatest things about Tinder Live is even if you had a great result from them ultimately, it's very likely you also had some crazy stuff happen on there too and you know how lucky you really got if you met someone great."

I read your book How to Be Alone - how would you explain your journey from moving to NY in a rat infested (both the literal creatures and the humans around you) “apartment” to now?

Lane says: "I will just say life is much better now that the only creature around me is an adorable dog."

If you haven't read Lane's book, I definitely recommend you do! Available on Amazon, How to Be Alone, is Lane's first published book and it hit #1 Bestseller. This book made me feel heard in ways I never thought I could be and if you've had a challenging life in any way - it is an incredibly inspiring read.

From starting the show to now, I’m sure your goals have changed. What do you hope will come next? Both professionally and personally!

Lane says: "I'm extremely excited to release my second It Was Romance album, I want to have a TV show, I want to write so many more books, and I wish to own the house from Practical Magic."

Lane Moore is an incredible creator and I highly recommend you check out her website and Instagram to look out for new releases and events!

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

1319

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
