This may be of interest to Ace of Base fans.

I liked all the Dan Scneider Teen Nick shows: Drake & Josh, iCarly, VicTORIous, Sam & Cat. I love them all. Though it is kind of weird how even after Josh lost all that weight and became hotter than Drake, they still marketed him as the dork. But I may be biased; always crushed more on the so-called loser dorks than the cool guys.

2. Ulf was always the member I distrusted. Ask my sixth grade friends for confirmation. This is 100% hearsay but I've heard Scandanavian countries struggle with quasi-Nazism and white supremacy quite a bit so this doesn't surprise me a bit.

3. AoB was clearly an ABBA revival band and I never really respected them for their musical talent or ideas. In fact, I was mostly impressed they could barely get through interviews in English but sang English so well. I really love ABBA too, if we're confessing. Waterloo!

I'm a 44 year old married man... One of my favourite songs is "Let it Go" from the movie "Frozen" and I am a fan of My Little Pony.

I wasn't suggesting anything of the sort, I just thought it was interesting.

It's just so empowering though??? I think as the trend fades from it it will become less of a guilty pleasure

Is it Love Yourself? Because I think that's a decent song.

- I will shamelessly drink milk, orange juice, etc straight from the jug despite having plenty of clean glasses (when I'm living alone and not sharing).
- I thought the song "Blank Space" was just ok the first time I heard it. When I saw the video it completely changed the message to me and I began recommending to my friends to watch.

Wow. Very well put together video.

I don't usually watch videos and I thought that the "art" of the big video was long gone, but this was good. I know bands like OK GO put together great videos**, but that is what draws people to their music. Taylor Swift does not need a video to draw her fans in. She could put out one of her catchy tunes about putting the garbage on the curb and it would be a platinum seller.

Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed it.

**Full disclosure, OK GO is one of my top 4 favourite bands of all time.

-I don't actually watch the adoptions on the KA live streams or close-ups. Enoch gets nervous when I start making odd sniffling noises.

You're right. I walk by night, and I know many things. I am the Whistler.

I knew I was somebody. I just thought it was Spartacus.

Iím not too ashamed of being a true crime buff, but I am ashamed of all the tasteless remarks I make while watching true crime shows.

At a used book sale earlier this year, I bought "Death Sentence," a book about the John List murders. I read it back in May and now want to reread it because it's getting to be the time of year when he committed the murders. He was a real man who really killed his real family and that is horrible. But I find the whole case fascinating and the book was IMO very well written.

It's one of those books you can't just tuck in your bag and read casually while waiting for your food at a restaurant, though.

I too have a fascination with reading true crime. I find it horrifying, but I am more compelled by survivor stories and how the police (or any others) ended the crime spree.

As a young teen, I read Helter Skelter, and then a book about the Richard Speck case. What hooked me for good was reading "The Stranger Beside Me" at university. It was given to me in the few months before the execution of Bundy.

I've probably got a small collection of 100 true crime books, and have binge watched just about every true crime show on Netflix.

But, I'll also admit, that I don't share this fascination with anyone. Even my wife, with whom I tried to share, thinks it odd. If I wasn't military, I think I would have loved to be a police investigator.

Enough people have been bothering me about this that I will make a public admission:

I have not seen Blade Runner.... yes, the original one....

Now quit asking if I've seen 2049!
