I like to try and distance myself from my songs, and I’m finding it quite impossible to do with this record and I’m not sure if it’s because the record is a lot more successful than our relationship was. I’m a bit bitter about that in a way, but in a really profound way because it’s really amazing. Every time I sing the song, something else comes out, a little bit more of me hates myself or a little bit more of me is devastated.

(Here’s to hoping the next album is about her bitter relationship with the last album which was about a bitter relationship. It’ll be more meta than Taylor Swift.)
Technology Can’t Stop The Turkey Drop
There may be tears around the dinner table tomorrow; as any campus psychologist can tell you, Thanksgiving is “turkey drop” time. The term famously refers to the holiday break-up, when college students who’ve been in long-distance relationships return home and end things with their sweethearts. The stereotypical “turkey dropper” is a college freshman whose boyfriend or girlfriend is still in high school, attending another college, or not in school at all. Come late November, he or she has spent two or three months marinating in a new environment, has met new people, perhaps had a hook-up (or fallen for someone new). Summer’s starry-eyed promise to “make it work, no matter what” has become late autumn’s “I think it’s time we took a break.”
Do Modern Family’s Cam and Mitchell Even Like Each Other?
Why are Cam and Mitchell so mean to each other? That’s what Mark Blankenship at NPR is wondering. “There’s always something persistently selfish or competitive about how these supposed life partners treat each other,” he says. The other couples “have all had storylines that hinged on mutual affection,” but not so for Cam and Mitchell, who “don’t even seem attracted to each other.” Sure, everyone on the show bickers with one another, but why don’t Cam and Mitchell’s stories ever “resolve into real kindness”? Is it because, as Blankenship theorizes, their child isn’t old enough to take one of their sides and thus shift the dynamics of an argument? Or does it go deeper than that? Alternately, is it not anywhere close to that deep? [via, NY Mag]
