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 […]

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 […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 11/5/12-11/11/12

Two big big things happened this week. 1) I turned 22teen a couple hours ago, making me the oldest living teenager. 2) I voted in my first Presidential election, which I was 110% excited to do. This week’s Seven Deadly Spins reflect those two things. On the birthday front: I can only assume that my pop […]

PRETENTIOUS MIXTAPES: United States of Whatever

Why It’s Pretentious: I voted today for the first time ever, so naturally I made a mix about it. Originally titled North American Scum after my second favorite LCD Soundsystem song, it is much more apathetic/snarky than I am. What can I say, I love angry punx, formally disenfranchised rappers, and bitter electronic artists. Personally, […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 10/29/12 – 11/4/12

Between feeding masses of neighborhood children on Halloween and the plethora of awards shows this week (wut up CMAs), it’s a pretty hectic seven days. Whenever I’m super busy, I usually fall back on listening to playlists rather than checking out new music. Most of this week’s Seven Deadly Spins are from new mixtapes, old […]

Halloween 2012 Pretentious Mixtape

Pretentious Mixtapes: Halloween Edition – 1300 McKinley

So I used to have this Tumblr called Pretentious Mixtapes I Made In High School, in which I posted pretentious mixtapes I made in high school. (I actually still have that blog, but it has since degraded into pictures of Jaden and Willow Smith, in hopes that they will stumble across it and adopt me […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 10/15/12 – 10/21/12

As those of you who follow me on Twitter know, I’ve been in New York for the past week for CMJ Music Marathon. It was indeed a marathon of music industry panels, late-night showcases, and cheap eats. The panel sessions were stellar, so expect some recap posts in the next week. (You can also check […]
