So, as previously mentioned, the knitting mojo has returned. I’m a busy little bee: planning the next project from LRITC, getting geared up for this month’s nerd-games, and plugging away on The Weasley Sweater commissioned by a nice lady from Reddit. Since that’s been the bulk of my knitting time lately, and it’s just acres of black wool stockinette, I will not bore you. And, since knitting is rather boring, I thought today I might try something new.

When at work, Spotify has become my new best friend, and I’ve had a lot of fun putting together my own playlists. And, because I’m an egotistical jerk, I thought perhaps these lists should be shared. So, if you use Spotify and would like a little new music, may I present:

Teen Drama is the Best Drama (link)
42 tracks, 3 hours

I cannot take full credit for this list. It was co-curated by myself and my friends Lis and Wes. We created it as an homage to one of our favorite pastimes: watching, mocking, and secretly loving network teen dramas. These songs are either from or inspired by such shows, and are generally as earnest, depressing, and reverent as the shows themselves. However, since we all three have most excellent taste in music, these songs are also some of the best representations of their respective genres, which include pop, emo, alt-pop, and underground rock.

We’re also really modest. I forgot to mention that.

So, if you need a little guilty pleasure in your life, or just want to feel like “these problems matter,” I encourage you to give it a shot. Since the list is arranged in alphabetical order, I also recommend turning on the shuffle function… it’s more fun that way.

Happy Thursday!
