Taylor Swift’s New Song

Screen Shot 2016-12-10 at 11.16.15 AM.pngScreen Shot 2016-12-10 at 11.18.44 AM.png

Taylor Swift just released a new song with former One Direction member, Zayn Malik. It is part of the soundtrack of the movie Fifty Shades Darker.

The song is available on iTunes, as well as Vimeo. Being me, I flipped out when I heard the song was released. As you may remember, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles–another member of One Direction–dated a couple years ago, which might make things a little bit awkward.

Until next time,

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, while enjoying a feast that was created by the pilgrims hundreds of years ago, eating foods that they didn’t even have.

So, let’s start by being grateful that we get to eat turkey and then go into a minor coma after Thanksgiving because the pilgrims didn’t have that. They had deer. And no pie either!

They also couldn’t turn on the TV and watch the Macys’ Thanksgiving Day Parade because TV didn’t exist. And (big shocker) neither did Macy’s!

And after spending a whole day being thankful for what we have, we completely lose our heads and elbow our way through a long line on Black Friday to buy more things so we can be thankful for those too! I can tell you the pilgrims didn’t have Black Friday in the 1600’s!

But it’s the one time of year where we get an excuse to stuff our faces with–well, stuffing! So enjoy today. Enjoy gorging yourself in turkey, and the mandatory nap afterwards.

This is where I leave you, deep in thought and thoroughly confused.

Why The Dakota Access Pipeline Is A TERRIBLE Idea

I think that the Dakota Access Pipeline should not be approved. The Dakota Access Pipeline is an oil pipeline that runs from North Dakota to Illinois, that will transport 470,000 barrels of ‘light sweet crude oil’: oil that is less than .42% sulfur. The CEO of the company Energy Transfer—which is making the pipeline—says it is 60% done. The reasons why I am not in support of the pipeline is firstly, because it puts the environment at risk. Secondly, it runs through Native American’s sacred land, and thirdly, because it isn’t very safe.

Status Update: Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

STATUS UPDATE: HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD

I’m about halfway through Harry Potter and The Cursed Child after hearing nothing but good reviews about it. So far I am really enjoying it. It took me a while to get used to the play format,

(Albus: Hey…

Harry: Hello son!

ALBUS and HARRY embrace.)

but overall I am enjoying it. I really like imagining how different scenes would be played out in front of a live audience, with no film editing or animation. Maybe I will go see the play…

A Letter To My Friends

Moving is hard.

You are leaving friends that you have been with for many years. You have laughed with them, cried with them and shared with them. You share inside jokes (“Greg, my shoe fell off!”, Mr. Traynor the Smurf, the old lady foot cheese and Cama Zotz and his chubby servant Goth) and enjoy spending time with them.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Many Harry Potter fans are delighted by the new Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I was excited too until I found out J.K. Rowling wasn’t writing it.

Then I found out it was a script book for a play, which has it’s premiere tonight in London. It follows 19 years after the book, where Harry is an overworked employee at the Ministry Of Magic, with his son Albus struggling with a family legacy he never wanted.

The book is released on the 31st, the day after the play’s premiere. I’m going to wait and see how people like it before I buy it.
