Basic Pitch is a worn out single mother of two with resting bitch face who doesn’t have time for your racist, misogynistic, classist, ableist, xenophobic, intolerant bullshit. She is an atheist, tree hugging, pro-science, pro-gun control, pro-vaccination, pro-choice, feminist, liberal snowflake. She also likes reading, baseball, and long walks on the beach.

Amazingly Disgraced is a mother of two adult children, with a powerful faith, filtered through the lens of skepticism. She believes in love, doing no harm, standing up and screaming for those who need it the most, and trying not to back down, even when it’s scary. She has a big mouth, an even bigger heart, and a very small threshold for idiocy, racism, sexism, ableism, Islamophobia…the whole nine yards.

We are two women who have three decades of history, beginning in grade school. We have seen each other through awkward teenage years, marriage, divorce, parenthood, lots of pain and tears, and plenty of love and laughter. We are also known as “those loud girls” stemming from an experience at a tattoo parlor. This quote probably describes us best:

“You don’t have to have anything in common with people you’ve known since you were five. With old friends, you’ve got your whole life in common.” -Lyle Lovett

We truly are sisters in blood, thought, and bitchiness and we’d like you to join our family (but only if you’re really cool). Please reach out, comment on our posts, make this a conversation, that is the goal.
