Glass Candy - Animal Imagination (Instrumental/Demo)

Shout out to the title of 50 Cent’s new album for helping me remember this gem from 2007. What an incredible song.

Anonymous said: how'd you get hooked up w/ Grantland?

I don’t really have a sexy story. I sent several cold pitches/emails asking if the office needed any kind of assistance. Then I waited. I waited for about 2-3 weeks without a response. I retweeted (subtweeted?) a story that the editor I’d contacted wrote. (Is a subtweet still a subtweet if I use the Twitter handle?) In any case, my subliminal tweet worked. The editor DMed me immediately after, and we continued the conversation.

Apparently one of the editors was familiar with my work and was nice enough to recommend me to another editor in charge of interns. After a long email exchange and a very lovely in-person chat, I was offered a position.

I had a really fatty steak for dinner in celebration. My heart beat so rapidly in the following hours, and it wouldn’t stop beating fast. I thought I was going to die before I was even able to step into the office. When it persisted the following day, I got legitimately concerned. I asked my mom, who works as a medical assistant. She laughed and told me I was just excited. (Thanks, mom!) My blood pressure and cholesterol levels were fine.

That was last December. I then jumped through bureaucratic hoops for the next two-and-a-half months before I even got a glimpse of the office. Everything that has happened since March 6 (when I officially started) has been an honor and a blessing.
