Sunday confessions, vol. 12

I don’t like Mumford & Sons. I tried, but they just don’t do it for me. I thought I could at least like their cover of “The Boxer” by Simon & Garfunkel, but I couldn’t find any reason why I would ever listen to it when I could just listen to the original instead, since … Continue reading

Sunday confessions, vol. 11

It’s been a long time since I did a Sunday confessions post, so why not? I’ve been thinking about dying my hair for about two years, but haven’t gotten around to it because I’m too cheap. Dude, girl hair is expensive, and it’s hard enough for me to consistently get hair cuts, let alone maintain a … Continue reading

I have a really loud, obnoxious laugh. If you’ve heard me laugh before you may or may not understand the varying degrees of obnoxiousness that my laughs achieve. It’s like a spectrum, and when I think something’s really funny and I laugh really hard, it’s ear-piercing and terrible. I’m really embarrassed by it at times, like … Continue reading

Oh My God: on guilty pleasures

Be still my seventh grade heart. What in the fuck are the Madden Brothers even doing? This video is so unbelievably perplexing to me–I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that Joel and Benji Madden still exist in the public eye, and I had never heard of Machine Gun Kelly until I saw this … Continue reading

Our shows were terrible because we didn’t know how to work the equipment and had really awkward on-air personas and almost always accidentally played a song with profanity and frantically had to … Continue reading
