Contest time!

Haven’t done a contest in a while, so let’s bust one out with a pretty quick turnaround. I grew up on late 80s-early 90s rap. I ate it all up because I thought it was the only form of music doing anything different. Yo! MTV Raps was required daily viewing for me, and that’s where [...]

miramax dies too early, ugly betty is right on time

Missed the blog yesterday, sorry. You can blame the Great Pocono Weight Race since it caused me to not get into work until 11:30, and that’s too late to write this.
