Decent article on our culture of haterism.

“And yet we derive our own identities from the act of hating. We connect on the things we are disappointed in.”   -Patrick Stump, Fall Out Boy I would have used different examples than Mr. Stump used, and that’s alright.  The message gets across. “Now, I’m not saying everyone needs to go around playing nice and […]

Fear not, people of Korea! AKA: My foray into Korean television.

(This is seriously, no joke, a post about a Korean soap opera.  Like the rest of my blog, this may be worth skipping.) I hear you like to be called Korea, Korea.  So, instead of South Korea, or the Republic of Korea, I’ll just call you by your first name.  I hope we’re close enough […]

In which I use curse words to write about Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater

Since you’re all so curious, I’ll let you know that Pergolesi’s is my favorite setting of Stabat Mater. Before I get rambling, I’m going to give you a preemptive tl;dr version of this post: Whenever I complete a task that I think is awesome, or get to the end of something where I feel I […]

Where the blogger woefully laments her lack of posts; vows to change.

Even blogs that don’t get read have authors who are ashamed of how little they post.  This blog is no different.  In an attempt to jump start things around here, it’s time for some randoms! Tu madre!  I recently rewatched the gem of a film Y Tu Mamá También and, against my better judgement, shared the […]

In defense of Floridians and the Florida State Fair.

I’m not going to say there weren’t questionable characters roaming about at the fairgrounds this past Monday.  I had my suspicions about a few folks, but I’m uppity like that.  As a lifelong Floridian, I’m aware of a certain reputation folks around here are saddled with, and, as one would suspect, supposed evidence of this […]
