Since my op-ed appeared in Forbes, I’ve been listening to this jam on repeat. Holla! Why is 3Oh!3 not more popular? I mean I know I’m gonna be bitching that they’re too popular later on but whatever. I love them. They’re great. We could party.

Anyway before I start rambling…how sad are you there’s no NBA games on?  The NBA is essentially what gets me through the winter. This is a hard time for everyone but what’s even... Read more »
