backleftlitz: Pitchfork gave it Best New Music. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with Pitchfork—or, at least, nothing more wrong with Pitchfork than with any other popular music publication/sentient and so flawed human being—but I think even Pitchfork’s writers would admit that choosing their favorite…

Layne Staley RIP
markrichardson: Yesterday was 10 years since Layne Staley’s death. I never cared for Alice in Chains but somehow I think about this guy pretty regularly.

Grandmother: Are you hungry?
Me: Nah, I just had a sandwich
-- An hour and a half later --
Grandmother: Are you hungry? I know you're starving. I heated up some roast and mashed potatoes, plus made some potato soup and fresh cornbread, there's also rotel dip and chips if you want it...
Me: But I'm not....
Me thinking: Damnit, she went to all that trouble even though I said I wasn't hungry.. Well, I'll just be polite and have..
Me: A bowl of soup, I guess. Thanks grandmother.
-- After I have a bowl of soup and some cornbread AND some roast --
Grandmother: Get you some more! There's plenty there for you! Get you another bowl of soup, you didn't even try the rotel dip, there's a whole pound cake too if you want some dessert, why don't you get you a slice?
Me thinking: Are you kidding me? I wasn't even hungry to begin with! Then you guilted me into a bowl of soup and some other stuff I really didn't even want?!.... But you are my grandmother and I only see you every once in a while and this seems to make you so happy...
Me: I guess I could eat a small slice of the pound cake

Me thinking: UGH SO FULL How did she trick me again???
