Today on Music Video Monday: “Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads This is one of my all-time favorite music videos. Toni Basil (who, despite being an actress, dancer, choreographer, and so on, is remembered mostly for her 80s hit “Mickey”) worked with David Byrne to choreograph the video. Mister Byrne wasn’t interested in dancing... Continue Reading →
This week in unpopular opinions that have annoyed people: I don't think vaccines cause [insert diagnoses here]. I would rather have a child with [insert any of the above] than a child who dies from a preventable disease. Person-centered language. This isn't really an opinion; it's being a decent person who uses language that ensures... Continue Reading →
Today on Music Video Monday: "I Fink U Freeky" by Die Antwoord This is just a masterpiece of a video.
This is the Finest Nerd Czarina, and I hate the news. You know what else I hate? Litter. Why are people so lazy that they can't just walk over to the trash can or recycling bin and properly dispose of their trash? I know many people don't mind living in their own filth, but I... Continue Reading →

In the early 90s, my sister and I were tweens, that particularly obnoxious phase between “sweet, innocent child” and “angsty, hormonal teenager”. There is nothing a... Continue Reading →
Today on Music Video Monday, "The Writing's On the Wall" by OK GO. Two weeks ago, I brought up the notion of artists suffering for the sake of art. OK Go definitely does this. In most of their videos, if any of them fucks up just once, they have to start all over. I believe... Continue Reading →
"Do you know Smashing Pumpkins are coming to Boston?" My best friend Adam and I had been watching music videos at the time, and, as a matter of fact, I didn't even know The Smashing Pumpkins were back together, let alone touring. I rely purely on other people for any updates on entertainment or pop... Continue Reading →
