HEY! WHERE DID MY MONEY GO?: December 2012

So in case you missed it, the Spotify Premium account that I’d been tricked into getting (curse you, 30-day free trials!) was cancelled a few months ago because a man from Canada stole my debit card and tried to buy $500 worth of groceries, and so I had to cancel my card. Which thus ended […]

10 Albums I Loved The Shit Out Of In 2012

Given my love for really bad rap and shameless pop songs, I make no claims that the albums I enjoyed the most this year were “the best of 2012.” For that, you’ll have to go to SPIN, NPR, and Get Bent. Instead, here are 10 albums that I loved the shit out of this year. They’re […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 12/17/12-12/23/12

It seems that every winter break, I fall into the same habits: drink a lot of hot chocolate, underestimate Russian literature, and drown myself in Bret Easton Ellis novels when the Russian novel starts talking about peasants too much. Most of this week’s Seven Deadly Spins come from the soundtracks to Bret Easton Ellis movie […]

PRETENTIOUS MIXTAPES: GLITTERATI

Why It’s Pretentious: So I made this apocalyptic concept album using only Ke$ha songs, which I know doesn’t sound very pretentious — besides when I use the phrase “concept album” — but don’t worry. First of all, the title comes from an unreleased Roger Avery film about Victor from Rules of Attraction/Glamorama. Nothing says pretentious […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 12/3/12-12/9/12

Another week of Seven Deadly Spins, another week when I pretend I listened to anything other than Ke$ha’s new album. Luckily, I did start working on my End-of-Year Best-Of-2012 lists this week, meaning I occasionally did not listen to Ke$ha. I am notoriously bad at End-of-Year lists because my brain runs on school years, so […]

Rock & Roll High School: Semester Wrap-Up

I may have, at some point, mentioned that this blog exists because it stemmed from an assignment in one of my classes. Our mission was to a) set up a blog that answered a question and b) develop a personal learning network around that question. I decided to look into the relationship between artists and […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 11/26/12-12/2/12

This week’s SEVEN DEADLY SPINS is not entirely accurate because, if it were, it would consist of seven songs from Ke$ha’s new album. Ke$ha’s new album is the most brilliant pop album I have heard since… the last time she released an album. Just when I thought I couldn’t love her anymore, there she goes, […]
