ladybar: Ladybar has pondered what made the year extraordinary, and it was just too much. Instead, Ladybar posts what could be considered the best songs of the year to Ladybar, at least. These are my special ones of 2010. 10. Foals, “Spanish Sahara” – Hyperbole alert: This is the greatest… You know that old adage, the one about always hiring people smarter than you so that your...

Last night I dreamt I was swimming in a pool on Polk St. in S. Scottsdale. I was tanning, too. And we were all having so much fun.

My teenage angst manifested itself as years in college, myopically obtaining degrees I feel ill-equipped to use. I should’ve just had sex.

TATWIH #2, Generalization Station
“It brought up so many emotions…” Ugh. When I read this in student papers I roll my eyes and sigh. Remember “show v. tell” from beginning high school composition? This is a tell of the most banal order. As a place-holder in a freewrite, of course this can slide, but no student should rely on this wording, nor should any professional.

Jeluz, guys. Jelluuuuzzz. Kelli’s impetus for her running tab of small, everyday joys: “My lovely friend Schmutzie created Grace In Small Things as a way to find joy in life. Since I’m...

And they. were....
