Pop Country and Holdin' on tight

I listen to a lot of pop-country at work. The more I hear it, the more I think I understand.
For example, a popular ditty right now is "A Guy Walks Into A Bar" performed by Tyler Farr and written by Melissa Peirce, Brad Tursi, and Jonathan Singleton (possibly because Tyler Farr is a fake, phoney, piece of shit that sucked his way through Nashville... oh shit, that was mean wasn't it?).

This song is about a loser falling for a barfly, and "holding on tight." Why do I point that out? Because "holding on tight," is just as common in pop-country as mentions of whiskey, freedom, and trucks. What "hold on tight," means as far as I can tell, is that the singer is an abusive alcoholic and the love interest is supposed to take it for as long as they can, before they wise up and leave.

In nearly all of these songs, both people are abusive alcoholics, so they have to "hold on tight," to each other. If you ever grew up knowing "that couple," of white trash friends who shouldn't be together but stay together even though they hate each other and are constantly at each others throats....

... they're just holdin' on tight.

Because God forbid they stop being drunk idiots.

Also, this is one of the worst songs, of any genre, out right now. So fake, so cliche, so boring, so utterly full of shit. Just like this wanker's fans.

See for yourself!

Whoa! this is my first post here in a very long time! Maybe there will be more soon. Who knows?

Alt Smoke

Another business shout out: Alt-Smoke on campus.
Lane, the dude who helped me out, said, "When you leave here today, you won't have any questions." And he was right. He answered every question I had about e-cigs, vapor, whatever you want to call it.
Cool thing about the place is you can try before you buy; there are 140 flavors to choose from, and complete starter sets for less than $40. A weeks worth of vapor is 6 bucks. 10% off on your first visit, and every $100 you spend (builds up over time, not all at once) you get 10 bucks off. 
All of the workers there are knowledgeable and friendly. I never felt any pressure to buy anything, and had all the time in the world to test out different flavors. I stayed away from the ones that tasted like tobacco; my favorites were Clearwater and Smarty Pants, both of which were sort of melon-y, but not too strong. 
One of the first questions they ask you is how many cigarettes you smoke in a day. They base their recommendation of nicotine levels off that, and guide you on how to decrease the dosage to zero. 
There are tables and chairs and people just seem to hang out there and chill. 
If you're interested in e-cigs or vaping, I recommend Alt-Smoke at 2460 N High Street. They are open from 10am-10pm seven days a week.

Kendrick Lamar and diss raps

I listened to Kendrick Lamar's "diss" rap to, let's face it, all the other shitty rappers out there today, the day after it was released. And it was weak. Incredibly weak. No secret that I think Lamar is unbelievably overrated. But that wasn't a diss rap. If it was, then rap is at it's lowest point ever right now. Tupac's Hit 'Em Up was a diss rap. Ice Cube's No Vaseline was a diss rap. Cypress Hill's No Rest for the Wicked was a diss rap. Every single thing Eazy E released was a diss rap. Kendrick Lamar rapped some bullshit with every other word being "nigga" and the industry is falling all over itself. Fucking pathetic. I'm supposed to believe that Drake is a hardcore dude? Uh, yeah. okay. What next, Chief Keef is the next savior of hip hop?

Cornerstone Craft Beer and Wine

I purchased a 32 ounce growler of Sierra Nevada Narwal Imperial Stout. It's surprisingly good, considering it's made by Sierra Nevada. The staff went out of their way to make me feel appreciated and gave me a walking tour of the place. Which was fun because it's 30 feet by 20 feet in size.
They have 4 and six packs in refrigerators, as well as a large selection of "build your own six pack" beers out on the floor.
The dudes at Cornerstone also said they would look into finding Affligem Dubbel for me and possibly stocking it. It's my all-time favorite beer.
They also sell my brand of cigarettes, so basically they are my favorite shop.

So ends the mini-review of my first experience at Cornerstone Craft Beer and Wine.
