My iTunes is Depressed

We used to be so close. We would shut ourselves up in my dorm, and spend hours doodling on my homework, and catching up on reading. I would highlight the hell out of my books, and you, iTunes, would provide the soundtrack. In those days it was all Jet and Patrick Park. That’s when we […]

She took the stages of heartbreak and channeled them. She placed equal blame. And she did it all without […]

Top Five Spice Girls Songs That Were Never Singles

In the 90s I was just another young kid with a pocket full of pogs and the dream that one day, once I was legal, Lance Bass would look my way and fall instantly in love. My tendency to fall for the gay boys aside, the 90s were my oyster. As a pre-teen, my knowledge […]

Why Do I Love Terrible Things: Call Me Maybe

One of the things that the three of us have most in common has always been our love of terrible things. Did we name our blog after a line from Talledega Nights? Yep. Did we once take an 8 hour road trip with just one Mika CD to entertain us for the duration? Affirmative. Is […]
