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 […]

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.
