    Now Wait for Last Year - Kill Me Tomorrow is alive and well and living on Earth

    Damn Right, Its Better Than Yours - Kelis "Milkshake" deconstructed

    Kelis' "Milkshake" has been stuck in my head for weeks. It is a masterpiece of awfulness, so completely, weirdly bad that my mind refuses to let it go. In a sadly futile effort to purge "Milkshake" from my brain, I have dissected the lyrics line by ...
