Let’s Talk About ARTPOP

Every once in a while, I decide to be a music critic. I’m not very good at it, but I give it my best shot. Last weekend, I managed to acquire a copy of Lady Gaga’s album “ARTPOP” (ugh, why all CAPS?), due out November 12, 2013. I was a huge Gaga fan after her […]

Lady Gaga’s “Applause” is Out…

Well.  I guess another song from Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ARTPOP leaked and unlike “Burqa”/”Aura” (I don’t know what the official title is) that leaked last week, this one is thankfully a return to that straight up pop sound that she does so well.  I already like it better than 80% of Born This Way.  There’s […]

Thoughts on Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

So for months, we’ve been hearing about Lady Gaga‘s new single from her upcoming album called “Born This Way.” I’ve been a Gaga fan despite how “eccentric” she can get since “Just Dance” so I was excited to finally get some new music from her.  I don’t know what I expected “Born This Way” to […]

Obviously, they don’t work for Delta.

How come I’ve never gotten this kind of awesome during a pre-flight?! P.S. Thank you to the super hot Kim for the link.
