Does anyone know what “psycho-surfer-rockabilly-garage-punk” would sound like? Additionally, do we think we should perhaps put a limit on how many genres you can string together with hyphens to describe your band’s musical style? Maybe, maybe?

You have not truly lived until you have driven around Durham in a pale yellow VW Bug, with the top down, blasting Soulja Boy. This is particularly enhanced if you are en route to rent He’s Just Not That Into You so you can watch it with friends while drinking fresh peach bellinis. Truly, I know I have said it before but I’m just gonna go ahead and say it again: best. summer. ever.
While working on our big happy new project, I was looking through some of Danielle’s pictures from freshman year and found a picture of me in a dress. I bought this dress in high school sometime and still had it freshman year when there was some lost-to-memory event whcih it seemed appropriate for (Danielle and Manda are dressed up too?). I have absolutely no idea what happened to this...
oh my goodness
I was just emotionally VIOLATED by the movie version of My Sister’s Keeper. Despite the fact that I was fully aware of every move it made to play my poor vulnerable heart strings, it still managed to abuse every single one. There were tears, sniffles and sobs. It was not pretty at all. So now we are recovering with sweatpants, cookies and How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days whose main...
Why is this in a CAR COMMERCIAL? I cry.
You know how when they send you those surveys on the net about housing, dining, your feelings, etc they always promise you prizes? And you actually just take the survey to waste time and vaguely wonder who ever wins those things? Well, if you took the Duke Social Relationship Survey this spring, the person who got a prize is me and the prize was movie tickets. Now I can go see one of those...

10:13 PM. Family of four with wife in white polka-dotted sundress and pink cardigan, large straw sunhat in hand. Husband in full blue seer sucker suit, bright red and yellow tie, and a STRAW BOATING HAT. I LOVE THE SOUTH… though at times I do not understand it.
At some point during every NY trip there comes a moment when I throw up my hands in surrender and just take a damn cab. That moment in this trip came when faced with the prospect of a 45 minute subway ride to get to dinner before an hour twenty long subway ride. NYC, you win as always. I’ll charge the thing to my parents. We’ll see how I feel about the E train to JFK as well.

The list of most queried NYT online words is like etymological porn. Also a nice look at some of the trendier smarty pants words floating around. To be reviewed the next time I have a paper to write. The real question of the day: “Remember, too, that striking and very specific words can become wan and devalued through overuse. Consider apotheosis, which we’ve somehow managed to use 18...
