Comedians other than straight white cisgender dudes

Book ID Help

I can't remember the name of this book or what it's about, but I remember the cover. It's a (New York?) cityscape, with yellow 1970s serif font for the title covering most of the space (and, I'm pretty sure, the author's name in white). I think the title was a few words, like 4 or 5, and it came out within the past 5-7 years. [more inside]

Feeling uninformed

What site can be my one-stop shop for national and/or international news (NOT JUST POLITICS)? I have a handful of go-to sites for local news and news in my industry, but I've realized I've seriously fallen down on knowing what's going on nationally in the realm of not-politics (for example, I only found out about Hurricane Barry just now by random chance). But I don't have the patience to juggle half a dozen sources for this sort of thing - I just want one comprehensive site (maybe two) that I can check once or twice a day.

What movie scene(s) / show episode(s) am I remembering?

A group of people enter a crowded frat/sorority/house party walking up the front steps and in through the front door. There is a staircase within the main hall (to their left?) that is also packed with people. This is a huge wild party with lots of excessive drinking, dancing and general peak of massive party energy. They proceed through the very crowded party/dance floor, through a kitchen (?) to a back yard that is also busy with people drinking / partying, possibly around a pool. Someone is puking in the bushes. [more inside]

Culinary media for pre-school aged kids?

My daughter is 3.5 and has shown a serious interest in kitchen activities. Usually a whirlwind of manic energy, she becomes focused and deadly serious when she is asked to help cook, bake, or otherwise help with food prep. I'd like to encourage that interest in her with more kitchen-related media. [more inside]

Name this music video

I saw this forever ago and cant remember the title. The singer has an indie vibe, appeared to be a black or biracial woman with natural hair. In the video, she has a boyfriend with dreadlocks. The lyrics are about realizing she has a crush on a woman. The woman love interest in the video was racially ambiguous with olive skin. The black woman singer wakes up in the morning while her boyfriend cooks her breakfast. She eventually kisses the girl love interest with olive skin. Thats all I got.

How do people get DIY music out there in 2019?

I recorded an EP a few months ago, and currently have it hosted on a website of my own. I'd like to get it out more widely to the world, without any expectation of making a dime. I have no clue what the small-label landscape is like now, nor how to approach them these days, or if that's even a good idea. Along the same lines, does anyone have any experience getting unsigned music onto Spotify?
