Two weeks ago, when America’s inevitable next No. 1 song dropped like a meteor in the Great Lakes, a college friend posted on my Facebook wall begging for help. “How do we feel about the new Swifty single?” she implored. “Tell me how to feel!”
I don’t blame my pal for being confused. So is everyone about the song that launched a thousand takes. But am I any better equipped to help my friend sort her feelings about “Look What You Made Me Do”? Within days—hours—she could have had all the guidance she needed on how to feel about the year’s most overexamined three and a half minutes of music: pro, con, meh, judicious, disappointed, and, of course, Trump-obsessed.
Now that the decade’s least surprising chart-topper has fulfilled its destiny, crowning the Billboard Hot 100, does anyone want yet another pop nerd’s opinion? I mean: Why is this song No. 1? Because it’s from Taylor Swift, the one-woman Super Bowl of Pop.

Hello again Tena! Would you happen to have more creepy lists or movies, short horror films, etc? I loved your last one!
Oh, gosh, this’ll be a tough one, I think. I’ll try to include lots of movies that can be viewed in full on Youtube.
Philosophy of a Knife (2008) - WARNING: This is very strong material, and not for the squeamish. It is based on real experiments conducted during World War II. It is broken up into parts, and it is also a very long film. I previously went over it in this post.
Begotten (1990) - WARNING: I gave a little background on this film here. This is a surreal, experimental film. It is strange, disturbing, and not recommended for the squeamish.
Faces of Death (1978) - WARNING: While there is content in this film that was hoaxed, it also contains real footage from slaughterhouses, surgical procedures, and other scenes of real death. It is absolutely not for the squeamish, and to view it is entirely at your own discretion. There are links for a few of the sequels in this post.
The Troma Youtube Channel - Troma has graced the internet with many of their cult classic films in full on Youtube. They tend to get cheesy and goofy, but there’s also a lot of gore and grossouts galore!
Dead Alive (1992) - Worth it if you can put up with the subtitles. Yes, folks, these movies are what horror fans remember Peter Jackson for. This was long before he would go on to make The Lord of the Rings.
Roger Taylor, baterista do Duran Duran, completa 57 anos hoje.
Seu nome completo é Roger Andrew Taylor (Bromwich, Inglaterra, 26 de
abril de 1960). É filho de Hugh e Jean Taylor e possui um irmão chamado
Roger esteve com a banda Duran Duran entre 1979 e 1985,
retornando após a reunião da formação original da banda em 2001. Até
hoje é considerado como ‘Duranie’ mais silencioso, apesar de hoje em dia
deixar sua timidez de lado e dar declarações mais abertamente. É de uma personalidade modesta, simples, e, no fundo, profundamente energético. De acordo com Simon Le Bon, é o elo central da banda.
Roger foi casado durante 21 anos com Giovanna Cantone, de quem teve 3
filhos: James (08/1987), Ellea (1992) e Elliott (01/1996). Os dois se
divorciaram em 2005. Em 2007, Roger casou-se novamente, com uma modelo
peruana chamada Gisella Bernales, de quem tem um filho, Julian Roger,
nascido em 9 de julho de 2011.
