Just call me the next Justin Timberlake, baby! Or, rather, just never call me again, haha… What you’re about to watch is really really bad – I’m not kidding. And I’m not talking about just the ghetto quality either.

And then we both laughed cuz it’s what everyone always wants to know as if there was a secret or something :) There’s not. People just don’t do it! He then told me (sarcastically) that he’s going to […]

That was the title of an email I just received from Aimee – a fellow fan of the site. Intrigued (of course) I opened it up, and I’m so glad I did: Yo J, You HAVE to listen to this guy! My boyfriend and I are taking off in a van in the Fall to explore America for 5 weeks and he came across this […]
