I’ve legit just flown half way across the world for my girl, Tay.
I’m proud to say that I’ve considered taylorswift my friend for nine years now. There isn’t much I wouldn’t do for her since her and her music have guided me through my life since 2006. When I found out that the 1989 World Tour was missing my home city, Perth, I was understandably devastated… But hey no problem I thought- I found the positive in the situation and saved up & planned a 3 month trip to America making sure the first thing I booked was a ticket to the 1989 show in Foxborough, MA!
Can’t wait to spend Saturday night with you taylorswift !! I’ll be dancing on my own, making the moves up as I go but happier than ever because of you.

Arizona’s primaries aren’t even done yet, and there’s already legal action being taken as a result of incompetence or possibly even intentional sabotage.
Leaders from the Arizona branch of the Democratic Party have confirmed that its lawyers are officially making an inquiry after multiple Democratic voters showed up to the polls only to find that they were listed as independents, Republicans, or had no party affiliation at all.
Many voters wound up having to wait in line under the hot Arizona sun only to find that they were ineligible to vote for the candidates of their choice. To add insult to injury, the polling locations have been so poorly planned that many voters had to wait in line up to four hours before finding out that their information had been improperly filed.
Poll workers have been giving out “provisional ballots,” according to 12 News. It’s unclear at this time as to whether these ballots will actually count in the Arizona primary, and whether intentional or not, it could result in the disenfranchisement of Arizona voters. […] No word has been given as to whether there was a pattern as to which kind of demographics were experiencing this kind of treatment, and no explanation has been given regarding what caused this bizarre error.
In its 34-year history USA Today has not endorsed a candidate in a presidential election. Only once have they “disendorsed” a candidate, and that was former KKK leader and white supremacist David Duke in 1991 when he ran for governor of Louisiana.
That changed on Thursday when the USA Today editorial board “disendorsed” Donald Trump. The editorial page has criticized Trump in the past, objecting to his appeals to “racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic sentiments,” and his “sometimes casual relationship with the truth.”
“This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency” the editorial board wrote.
The frightening adventure game from 5pb was originally released stateside on the PlayStation Portable in 2011 thanks to Marvelous USA and XSEED, with the followup hitting two years later. They were decent little games that used pixel art and 2D anime stills to portray its horror story.
In the video, posted Monday by Patheos blogger Michael Stone, a woman in the audience said that she is a kindergarten teacher who is concerned about children being given devices with screens to learn from at a young age.
Stein said that, yes, it’s bad for growing kids to spend too much time glued to screens on TVs or computers. Too much non-human interaction has been shown to negatively affect children’s cognition and their ability to socialize and communicate with others.
“And what about the wireless?” the teacher asked.
“We should not be exposing, especially, kids’ brains to that,” Stein said. “You know, we don’t follow that issue in this country, but in Europe where they do, they have good precautions around wireless. Maybe not good enough, because it’s very hard to study this stuff. We make guinea pigs out of whole populations and then we discover how many die.”
“And this is, like, the paradigm for how healthcare works in this country,” she said, “and it’s outrageous.”
There is no evidence that wireless signals are harmful to adults or children. The World Health Organization (WHO) said in May of 2006 that electromagnetic fields like wireless signals pose no risk to human health.
“(T)he body absorbs up to five times more of the signal from FM radio and television than from base stations,” said WHO. “From all evidence accumulated so far, no adverse short- or long-term health effects have been shown to occur from the RF (radiofrequency) signals produced by base stations. Since wireless networks produce generally lower RF signals than base stations, no adverse health effects are expected from exposure to them.”
Taylor Swift parties, and yearns, like it’s ‘1989’
If you are not aware that Taylor Swift has a new album out Monday, it’s certainly not her fault, or ours. The rollout for 1989 (***½ out of four stars) named for the superstar’s birth year, has been as meticulous and as eagerly pored over as a presidential campaign, and its ascent on the pop charts is as certain as death and taxes — and likely anticipated with as much dread by some folks.
Never mind the haters, though. Swift’s genius — or part of it, anyway — has been to turn the same mix of unabashed neediness and cunning that can make her tough to defend as a celebrity into rock-solid musical assets. On 1989, she matches deceptively simple, irresistibly catchy melodies with lyrics that can seem by turns confessional and elusive, playful and aching.
“I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream,” Swift sings on Blank Space, a sparkling tease that also nods to a “long list of ex-lovers who’ll tell you that I’m crazy.” For the more sober, spacious Bad Blood, she shifts into full-on drama queen mode, telling one of those exes, presumably, that she still bears “scars on my back from your knife. … Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes.”
Executive produced by Swift and Max Martin, 1989 is Swift’s declaration of independence from the country music industry that inspired and nurtured her, but was never really a natural home. Always more of a pop singer/songwriter at heart, she teams with expert tunesmiths in that genre — in addition to Martin, Shellback, Ryan Tedder and Jack Antonoff — to craft songs that, as the title suggests, nod to a previous era, when the term electro-pop didn’t evoke the R&B- and club-based grooves of EDM.
That’s not to say that
1989 is without more organic touches, or rhythmic intuition. Guitars pop up frequently; horns lend a funky vibe to Shake It Off, while I Know Placesoffers a shuffling, artfully syncopated beat.
Bubbly synth chords and clean, crisp percussion dominate big, airy arrangements on songs such as Style, which could be a lost Berlin track, and Welcome to New York, a love letter to a city that “keeps you guessing” and “drives you crazy” — like any great relationship, right?
Swift may no longer be that naive, as it turns out. On the warm, dreamy This Love, she sings, “When you’re young/ You just run/ But you come back to what you need.”
At 24, of course, Swift is still in her youth, and likely has plenty of searching ahead of her — and plenty of folks who will watch, and listen, as she moves forward.

Now that #HillaryClinton is a step closer to becoming president. There’s no doubt that State Department would be turn into fracking marketing agency. Since she loves fracking so much. Can she count the amount of money she gotten in bribes from the frackers while breathing contaminated frack water and polluted air from fracking?
