"Mine"- Taylor Swift

Do you remember all the city lights on the water?
You saw me start to believe for the first time

When I returned from Sweden, I stayed with my sister a few days. I don't know why this is a vivid memory; there's no real reason for it to be. Perhaps it was some strange cultural adjustment? Nevertheless, I remember chilling in her comfortable family room when my most brilliant friend, Wenli, sent me this new song to enjoy.

I was a relatively new Taylor Swift fan then. THEN. then this happened:


I was hooked. I just remember, lying on my stomach in my sister's living room, listening to this song on repeat. And I was so bummed about leaving Sweden, but this quainty, almost Springsteen or Bon Jovi take on MAKIN' IT (almost, I stress almost, although I love TayTay) etched a joyful hole in my heart. like- things won't be SO bad. 

the whole song paints this picture of some very foolhardy young couple falling in love and moving along quickly together. but it's sweet- Taytay gets all dramatic and shit and me? Me, I just sit there and appreciate it. It's like candy to my bitter ears. 

And how can you deny the CATCHINESS of this track? God!

So first love, last love, etc. My first love was a boy on the bus that looked like Rivers Cuomo. years before, a boy in my first grade class said he would marry me. later on, he turned out to be gay. I was not surprised!

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
