1. I was hugely disappointed. Nice’s raps on some song, probably “One Two And One More Makes Three,” were straight up terrible. The beats are pretty sick, but this was not fun for me.

2. I was listening to this song while the subway to my interview stopped working. Not only was my iPod spot on, but, to quote a man much smarter than me, “nature sympathized” that day.


The hardest thing about making a resolution to get more sleep and drink less coffee seems to be the appeal of just getting less sleep and drinking more coffee. Someone should try to make that stuff less delicious. Or maybe I should stop putting in sugar so I stop liking how it tastes…
