On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.

Tournament of Hearts don’t believe in irony. They believe in anthems: waves of A-minors crashing up against D-major resolutions and reverb-drenched snares bouncing off the walls of Hollywood guesthouses. These five young men formed in 2012 and recorded during midnight sessions with a like-minded engineer at Interscope Records, who believed in them and the big, deep drums of R & B rather than the lo-fi offerings of typical indie records. This collaboration resulted in Local Maximum, 7 songs about starting fires, peeping toms, and throwaway lovers. Already armed with early shows at SXSW, the coming year will see the band tour the West coast, delivering live energy to songs already bursting at the seams.

Secondhand Fandom: When you do not actually watch/read/are really interested in said fandom or object of the fandom, but you know enough about it that you can hold an intelligent and involved conversation with someone in the fandom.

Teen Wolf. I know enough about Teen Wolf from secondhand absorption that I wrote a fucking Sterek *fic*.
