NOTHING FEELS GOOD: A Graduation Playlist

Is there anything I love more than a man-boy whining about growing up over a catchy riff? Probably not! Are you graduating? Do you need a whiny boy to sing about it so you know it’s real?? Don’t Worry! I’m here with the whiniest grad day playlist ever made to serve all of your senior… Read More

Me and My Mother, Fiona Apple and Kanye West

Growing up, I was embarrassed to share the things I liked with my mom. She was always asking to look at my half-finished paintings or to read the little scraps of essays that I wrote for class. Every time I would protest. I’d blush and get flustered, grabbing pages from her hand, snapping the sketchbook… Read More

MARCH MADNESS: The Catch Up

Late winter mood swings. Midterms. Moon cycles. The mating season of the European hare. It can only mean one thing:  MARCH MADNESS SEASON. Every March, Div. I basketball teams face off in a tourney and fans  are called upon to fill out brackets with their guesses as to who will win. Here at WRMC, we wanted… Read More

This is My Jam: The Cab- “Take My Hand”

I wake up at 8:00 AM and snooze my alarm twice before lolling over the side of my bed to grab my laptop so I can perch it on my chest as I check my email/facebook/twitter/horoscope. I begin to calculate just how many minutes I can afford to spend in bed before I ransack my… Read More

On Sharon Van Etten

  April 29, 2014– Christine Friar (the blogger formerly known as Drink Your Juice) posts “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” on a social media site. I listen to it and the second it finishes I know I am in love. Sharon Van Etten’s voice has a nostalgic quality, her drawn out vowels and easy… Read More

This is My Jam: Hole- “Awful”

After my 2013 summer flings with the Smashing Pumpkin’s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville, it makes sense that my foray into 90s rock classics would lead me to Hole’s Celebrity Skin. Released in 1998, many of the songs are collaborations between Courtney Love and Pumpkin’s front man Billy… Read More

This is My Jam: Modern Baseball – “Your Graduation”

I may be the only person I know who yearns for the early 2000s. Of course I mean this on a superficial level; I have no desire to revert back to the Bush administration cesspit and I might not be able to deal with living with dial-up Internet, Avril Lavigne, polo shirts, or excessive lip… Read More

This Is My Jam: Kanye West “Runaway”

When I was in high school, I considered myself a fan of Kanye West. Not a “superfan” or a “casual fan.” Just a fan. As in, I knew all of the words off of all of the songs on Graduation but I only knew a handful of tracks beyond the singles on all of his… Read More

This is My Jam- Neko Case “Night Still Comes”

Singer-songwriter, Vermont ranch owner, kitchen-trained chef, honorary Canadian, redhead: Neko Case is everything I aspire to be.  I first heard about Case when I was 16, a few months after “Middle Cyclone” was released. I’d downloaded a playlist of some 90 or so songs that a Texas college radio station had deemed worthy to get… Read More

THIS IS MY JAM: Liz Phair-“6’1″”

What is Liz Phair to a girl like me? Phair was making manic-pixie claims of being your “average everyday sane psycho supergoddess” when I was 10 years old and struggling to get my mom to let me buy my first training bra. At that point, she’d already run around the feminist block and come out… Read More
