New Rules

I'll be alternating with Mendy this semester, and am flying under the banner of her show Moscow Rules. The format will be largely the same for me, other than the time shift.

And please please please, check out the new e.p. by The Secret History. This is Michael Grace's new project, and though it'll never replace My Favorite, it is, in the words another favorite of mine, a worthy successor.
