The Girl Who Hates Everything | backtracking 


12. Wait. You hate backtracking or you’re backtracking? 

A little bit of both.

13. Fine. Let’s start with why you hate backtracking. 

I don’t necessarily hate backtracking, I just find it an undesirable quality in certain people. You know, you spend hours trying to say, convince someone to stop using a particular cream that causes a rash. They argue and tell you you’re wrong and then…

Some time later they will inform you that the cream is the worst ever and act like you didn’t even say anything.

It’s basically backhand backtracking.  At least own it! I won’t judge you. (more…)

This is my current inspirational jam


Do it like nobody’s around, people! Unless you’re someone who needs a babysitter. Or someone who thinks being an asshole is a good thing. Or Donald Trump. 

Same difference?

Probably. 

Smile Like You Mean It


Save some face, you know you’ve only got one
Change your ways while you’re young
The Killers – Smile Like You Mean It

This is one of my favorite songs. I haven’t listened to it for a while but I kind of needed to hear it today, so I’m posting it here, LOL. Happy Friday!

Music Monday #2


This post is dedicated to Liz. I hope that Jared has acknowledged you after all of the mental gymnastics you did in his honour earlier.

Anyway, yes, same as last week! Three songs that I listen to with no shame whatsoever. 😛 (more…)

Music Monday #1


I thought about making a separate post but there’s nothing I have to say that hasn’t already been said, in a more eloquent way, so I will just post a brief message below this point.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those in Paris, Beirut, Nigeria, those poor students at the University of Missouri and anywhere else where bad shit happened. I wish we could all just get along. One Love, y’all.

In true padadeuche fashion, Jared managed to tweet ‘#friday13th’ in the middle of everything that was happening. Sigh. I have a post on his bs saved in my drafts but I don’t think today is the right day for it.


I have decided to share my guilty pleasure songs with my loyal reader(s) every Monday. Or whenever. I have no idea what day it is. Actually, most of what I listen to these days are guilty pleasures and I will own it! I need my hype playlists. Especially in light of recent events.

I have three songs for you all today.

Ray J ft Bobby Brackin – I Hit It First

This song…speaks for itself. It’s just so hilarious to me. It has everything – catchy beat, silly but catchy lyrics, the rhyming of ‘function’ with ‘something’, a completely moronic video and some kind of low budget Lil Wayne clone. Perfect.


Blue – One Love

This song also speaks for itself.


Corbin Bleu – Push It To The Limit

This video is terrible but whatever. This song is EVERYTHING. I dare anyone to tell me otherwise.

Does anyone else have any cheesy, silly songs they listen to every day once in a while? 😛

Your Number One..


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Your Number One.”

What was the #1 song when you were born? (not sure? you can find out here.) Write about how the song relates (or not!) to your personality.

Well this seems fun and I’m bored.

Well, this is interesting…


I know I’m several months and possibly a year late in watching this but what the everloving watermelon lemon hell is this? I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or do damage to myself with my eyeliner. I remember people saying that this video was rife with cultural appropriation and…it’s hard to argue with that really.

I liked Avril better when she was saying see you later to her sk8r boi.

I think the person on YouTube who wrote this comment

How much meth does it take to enjoy this?

asked the most pertinent question. I can only assume that the answer is a lot.

Throwback Thursday


So I’ve been on an old music kick of late, and when digging through old CDs, I found an old copy of Beautiful Soul and thus began my week of listening to every single Jesse Mac song ever to be made.

Naturally, I migrated to YouTube where I stumbled upon this:

This song used to be my jam, but the video never fails to amuse me. It’s like a four minute road safety video without the car crash. I especially like the part at the 1:59 mark when Ludacris shows up….holding chains connected to two different moving cars….as he stands on another car. Quite what message we’re supposed to take from the video I don’t know. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during the concept meeting. The car theme seems to come up in a lot his videos even though he still looks like he’s not tall enough to reach a steering wheel. 😛

The story so far: once upon a time, Jesse wanted you and your  beautiful soouuuul His blond bowl-cut hair is kind of hilarious. And there was that time he lived because you lived. And then he just wanted you to know, that he’s right where you want him, because he can’t let you go. Oh, and there was the was the whole Disney thing (the lip syncing is quite funny in this one). And then he was leavin‘, but not before letting you know that he didn’t speak Japanese, Spanish or French but your body language definitely made sense.

We also can’t forget that time that you were his (and the rest of Dreamstreet’s) sugar rush! LOL at the kid with the red glasses…oh and something happened every time down on Dreamstreet. Apparently. The end of the video makes the song seem a lot less innocent than advertised…hahahaha.

laughing gifMost recently, Jesse’s moved onto some girl who’s Superbad, presumably because beautiful souls aren’t very 2014. His fans don’t seem to like this new Jesse, because the old one actual had morals or something. It’s all very amusing.

Typical comment to be found on each video: OMG JESSE MCCARTNEY SHOULD BE WHERE BIEBER IS NOW. Be careful what you wish for JMac-ers (I think I cried internally at this term still being a thing. I thought we left it behind us in 2008!)

Ah, these videos make me feel old, lol.
