Today I discovered a LOT of Wonder Years feels but they’re all ALSO related to Game of Thrones :/
Going Away to College by Blink-182
Please take me by the hand;
It’s so cold out tonight.
I’ll put blankets on the bed;
I won’t turn out the light.
Just don’t forget to think about me
and I won’t forget you.

Gotta be honest, I’m finding it really hard to mourn the loss of higher education as an adolescent security blanket when I could rather be doing things like going to the beach in September and eating ice cream.
If you haven’t read Pitchfork’s 2003 review of U2: The Best of 1990-2000 you really owe it to yourself to do so. Over the course of the review’s 1500 words, author William Bowers
- Explains that the site’s glowing reviews of The Eminem Show and Source Tags & Codes were the result of Pitchfork senior editor Ryan Schreiber accepting bribes from Interscope
- Uses KFC and AIDS in the same sentence
- Creates no less than four hypothetical U2 compilations, including When There Were Only Two Sets of Footprints, That’s When the Rhythm Section Was Carrying Us
- Writes an original limerick comparing most of U2’s 90s output to human excrement, to be sung by fictional sixth grade children
- Dismisses Christmas as a scam
- Describes Martin Scorsese’s 2002 film Gangs of New York as an “ambitious film about a magician’s rivalry with a younger version of the cowardly lion of Oz for the heart of a transvestite, set against the backdrop of the riots that almost destroyed the Muppet Christmas Carol soundstage”
- Ponders on the exclusion of bassist Adam Clayton’s solo cover of the James Bond theme
- Describes the band’s hit 1991 single “One” as the soundtrack to “white people in their apartments clutching wine glasses, unbuttoning the top button of Gap shirts and giving each other come-hither looks”
- Concedes that U2’s bombast is at least capable of the ability to “transform quarter-beer night at the bowling alley into a precipice of gladiatorial triumph”
- Sums up the collection’s content as “piffle”
Skull in a salt lake.
