I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

VH1 Jump Start: Bangles “Manic Monday”

I’m already over this day and I can’t find my new Metro card so now I’m gonna have buy another one and look for it later.  This song is very appropriate for my mental state.

The band got this song from Prince, who originally wrote it for Apollonia 6 (can you even imagine that?), and it was their first big hit.  This would be the first in a long string of singles featuring Susanna Hoffs singing lead, though the albums saw the band sharing vocal duties.  To most of the world, Hoffs was the lead singer, the band resented it, and eventually the Bangles broke up.  I think they’re back together now (minus Michael Steele) but that 80s magic is hard to recapture.

They should write Terrific Tuesday to give everyone something to look forward to.

     Two maps to show you how economically hypocritical Red States are.

What do we hear most from Red States (other than “guns" or "Jesus" of course)?  Big government is bad and taxes are too high.  Alright, so what would happen to people in Red States if the government stepped out of their finances?  And who is actually paying for public services when those Red States are focused on tax breaks for the rich?  Let’s look at two maps.

     Nicki Minaj’s Sweet 16 for her little brother.

Before anybody gets hype, no I’m not a Nicki stan or anything.  (Does she call all her fans Barbies or just the girls?  Y’all let me know.)  But her little brother Micaiah turned 16 and the pictures are too cute.  Nicki has been rocking her own hair with little makeup lately and I love seeing her as a regular chick just hanging out with the family.

     Redneck Road Rage — Instant Karma

I only drive 2 or 3 times a year, but when I was in college, I drove to campus, drove to work, drove to nearby cities for concerts, drove 10 hours to visit my sister — I drove a lot.  So, I definitely remember being tailgated by assholes who thought my 7-10 miles over the speed limit just wasn’t enough and they were too impatient to pass like a normal person.

And I always hoped something like this would happen to them.

     Look at this photo. I just reached for the phone to call my mom, which is the first time that’s happened to me in the year and a half since she passed.  Before, when I listened to people who’ve lost a parent, I noticed a lot of people reach for the phone in the months right after, because it doesn’t seem real, because it hasn’t set in yet.
Nobody talks about the years after when you’ve completely forgotten, when it’s raining outside and you need to take a dessert to a dinner on Monday, when it’s a Saturday and she’s usually talking on the phone in the afternoon anyway, so you want to call her to get her sweet potato pie recipe.  Nobody told me about that part.
