Hamilton Explained: Cabinet Battle #1 (As Kanye Rant Tweets)

Welcome back to Hamilton Explained! It’s been a minute. When the Hamilton soundtrack was released all of these historical and musical references were jumping out at me and I wanted to start unpacking some of them here. I wasn’t counting on a whole community of people doing this very thing over at Genius. Instead of duplicating the efforts from Genius (check out their annotations if you haven’t!) here’s Cabinet Battle #1, explained through tweets from Kanye West’s epic January 27, 2016 against Wiz Khalifa. WASHINGTON: Ladies and gentlemen, you coulda been anywhere in the world tonight, but you’re here with us in New York City. Are you ready for a cabinet meeting??? The issue on the table: Secretary Hamilton’s plan to assume state debt and establish a national bank. Secretary Jefferson, you have the floor, sir JEFFERSON: ‘Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ We fought for these ideals; we shouldn’t settle for less These are wise words, enterprising men quote ‘em Don’t act surprised, you guys, cuz I wrote ‘em 8th I…

Coveted 90s Christmas Toys

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
It seems like everything from the 80s and 90s is getting a revival these days – from Full House to The X Files to Jem and the Holograms (although that didn’t go so well). There’s a rush of nostalgia going on right now, but it seems different to us millennials because it actually pertains to us. Instead of wearing 70s-inspired bell bottoms when we were in 7th grade, now we’re the ones who are rocking daisy print baby dolls dresses and jelly shoes. Yeah, I feel old too. In addition to fashion and entertainment, kids’ toys also somehow make a comeback, with things like Easy-Bake Ovens (which are weirdly futuristic looking now) and Puppy Surprises reappearing. In fact, the Puppy Surprise, you know that stuffed animal that’s holding an unknown number of baby puppies in its velcro sack, made a return last year, and it was so popular that the company had to stop airing commercials because the demand was so high. Easy-Bake Ovens and Puppy Surprises may have been coveted in the…

Throwback Thursdays! “Everlong” by Foo Fighters

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
This is one of the few songs by a band that I feel in general I can say both die-hard and casual fans agree is their best song. It’s one of Foo Fighters best videos, it’s a great rock song and it has a pretty great acoustic version as well. I thought I was gonna say more about this but it turns out that I am not. Enjoy the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBG7P-K-r1Y

Throwback Thursdays! “Popular” by Nada Surf

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
I’m curious to see how many people remember this song. Just kidding! Nada Surf probably doesn’t even remember this song. I promise I’ll do a more well known song next week. Until then, enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNc45FTenhg

Rolling down a hill with Jez – 17th February 1998

Originally posted on If Destroyed Still True:
Tuesday 17thWe got put into different groups again. I got put in the better group to go down the big slope with some instructor called Sonia who had a go at you if you fell over. In my good group there was me, Rachael, Georgia, Josie Nichol, Jim Brackenhurst, Graham Baxter, little 5 yr old Jack L (Mrs L’s son) and Miss P. After lunch we went all the way down the mountain. It was quite steep and some parts were quite scary. We also did the slalom and jumps and stuff. It was good at lunch. The kitchen staff had made packed lunches which we ate in the café at the top of the mountain. We had from 12:00 noon ‘til 1:30pm and we all had a snowball fight coz it was the one snowy day we’d had. I ended up rolling down a hill with Jez which I can’t say I minded really! I still like Jez and Ferny but Ralph, Freddie and Graham are being…

A Teenagers Writing: Paper Hearts

Originally posted on Everything and Nothing:
Hey guys, For this week, I decided to share this song I’d written. It’s based on Paper Towns a book by John Green and to be very honest it’s one of the very few books of his that I’ve actually liked…  So I decided to write a song? Well, something like that (because obviously, every time you read a book, you write a song for it :P) …. Let me know if you like it 🙂 Paper Hearts I watched the lightning strike, Watched it tear down trees, Thought of you and I, How we used to be. Saw all the memories again, In a split second, Felt the walls closing in, Felt all those stares. And I don’t want to stay no more, Living with these paper hearts, All over these paper towns, Watching every move we make, Forever. So let’s get away, We can just run away, To a better place, Where hearts don’t lie. Snuck of at dark, Never to return. Felt that long lost spark,…
