If MMLP2 has one great failing, it is that Eminem doesn’t seem to know what he wants this album to be.

Song of the Day: Janelle Monae – “We Were Rock n’ Roll”

It’s Sunday. Football is on TV, but it’s almost 5 o’clock and that sinking feeling is coming fast. You have work/class/responsibilities tomorrow (If you don’t have these things then congratulations, your life is pretty awesome.
