“So, uh… Whiskeytown is your favorite band?”: Dating and Popular Culture

(photo credit: richkidsunite, via Flickr) I have long accepted I need to write about happenings in my life in order to make sense of them. The unfortunate aspect about this understanding is that I write about it, and consider the job to be finished; even when I know something is good for me, I write about … Continue reading “So, uh… Whiskeytown is your favorite band?”: Dating and Popular Culture

trash by taylor: march favorites

(If you haven't heard about or checked out the new album generator for the new 30 Seconds To Mars record, check it out) I haven't done one of these posts in ages, it seems-- that's a huge drag because this is one of my favorite sections of the blog! March was a quick month where I … Continue reading trash by taylor: march favorites

It’s not me, but it’s probably me: pop music and passive aggression

(here's an old picture of me holding my favorite record, which I think is like, ~really fitting~ to this post.) In a now heavily-gif'ed interview, Dave Grohl described the early impression of the internet as being reminiscent of a bathroom wall, where everyone would write their  best explicit material, usually directed toward a specific someone. … Continue reading It’s not me, but it’s probably me: pop music and passive aggression

a long december (or whatever it is, I hate the counting crows)

  (art by Jessi B. I miss her!) We're ten days into the new year, and I already can't believe how much new year related space in occupied in my brain. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm feeling lighter; the amount of relief I'm sure we all have for 2017 to be over, … Continue reading a long december (or whatever it is, I hate the counting crows)

trash by taylor: november favorites

(my best friend's strict order to slow down on the mashed potatoes from Publix, during my post Thanksgiving feast. I DID NOT LISTEN) The root word in "November" is "No" and this word sums up how I have always felt about November. I'm sure I have been pretty vocal about my indifference (read: blind hatred) … Continue reading trash by taylor: november favorites

october (the month where i discovered mushy peas. does anyone want to hook me up with some)?

October was a MONTH. Not just a month, but a MONTH! I normally do a "favorites" post at the end of the month, but I forgot last month and just really didn't feel like I had a lot of "favorites" in October. It was sort of the beginning of the fall season and I have … Continue reading october (the month where i discovered mushy peas. does anyone want to hook me up with some)?

Trash by Taylor: August favorites

(hey, hi, it's me. i know it's been a long time, but i've just been trying to live life, y'know?) August was a weird month. It was one of those months where you find yourself as a character in a coming-of-age film, but John Hughes didn't write your film, so there is a whole lot … Continue reading Trash by Taylor: August favorites

Holler & Dash- Nashville, TN

(The "Chicken, Set, Go" biscuit from Holler & Dash) I had never been to Holler & Dash or had heard of a "biscuit only" restaurant until recently, and I'm really sold on the concept after my first visit! I went to Holler & Dash with my best friend for the first stop of my Birthday … Continue reading Holler & Dash- Nashville, TN
