things i think about

{it seems lately that i have quite the bone to pick with teenage pop idols... but seriously yo, i cannot listen to that damn Love Story song one. more. time. without commentary...}


oh Taylor Swift. you're very cute and bubbly and wholesome and you have really nice hair. but your grasp of early American classics is somewhat lacking, i'm afraid... case in point:
'cause you were Romeo / i was a Scarlet Letter ...

oh really? you were a symbol of an unchaste woman in 17th century Puritan society? you were a method of public shaming, resulting from adulterous liaisons with a priest?


not sure if that's quite what you meant, Ms. Swift. at least read the Cliff Notes before forcing me to listen to a ridiculous bastardization of literary analogy on every damn radio station, every 37 damn minutes, for the last 6 damn months.

  3. Oh dear... well said!

    I don't know why but she just IRKS me! I've never listed to her music cause I can't get past her weird head... she reminds me of a character from The Labyrinth. I realize that's cruel and harsh, but my Ipod, my choice, right?

  4. That is so funny because I tell Brian everyday that my co-worker plays a radio station and I swear that is the ONLY song the station plays. I think I am forced to hear it at least 6 times throughout the day and it sticks in my HEAD- Ugh!

  5. I have complained about that same thing every time I hear that song. And someone should tell her that Romeo and Juliet DIE at the end of the play. They do not suddenly win the approval of her parents and live happily ever after. thumbs down.

  7. I HATE that damn song. I've never actually listened to the lyrics closely enough to notice that before though...

  8. Yessss! Thank you so much for mentioning this. As a total lit-nerd, I constantly think about how wrong this song is. Not to mention, you know, that whole double suicide thing at the end.

  14. That gets me too. That, and Jason Mraz singing about our God-forsaken right to be happy. It's called a dictionary, buddy.

  16. Hi I really like your blog, its so funny and great!!!!!!!

    Ug. for serious. This song makes me want to beat my head against the steering wheel....Also- the next line is "And my Daddy said stay away from Juliet..." and that just drives me batty. I mean maybe if she was that much of a "scarlet letter" her dad want her to lock it down and act right? I don't know....these are the places my mind wanders while listening to Ms. Swift
