“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

2017 in three minutes or less: my year according to Spotify (100-90)

(credits to somewhere on Tumblr.) I saw High Fidelity for the first time in high school after countless people recommended it to me. Almost all of them would tell me John Cusack's character, Rob Gordon, reminded them of me. If you have seen the film, it's probably no surprise why I would struggle with this comparison, but … Continue reading 2017 in three minutes or less: my year according to Spotify (100-90)

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)?

fall by numbers

spotify:user:227erflpbxb3ard7tkt5yhe6i:playlist:28bDGD4HHowqpyrZRnYQbT   I've got an extremely complicated relationship with Fall. I can remember feeling unhappy in the third grade for the first time during the season because my mom made me go to church choir against my will, but that is definitely another story for another time. this playlist contains music dating back to my … Continue reading fall by numbers

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

Trash by Taylor’s July favorites

This is my first "favorites" post and I'm pretty excited about it! July was a good month. I'm a little biased because I was born in July and love the heart of the summer! I've gathered a few things this month that have gotten me through the heat and the thought of getting older and … Continue reading Trash by Taylor’s July favorites
