November 13, 2015

It's been a big fall in the world of music (two words: Hotline Bling) and, if you're a 13-year-old girl (or this author), today might just be the peak.

Today, we celebrate the release of two highly-anticipated albums: "Purpose" by Justin Bieber and "Made in the A.M." by One Direction.

Maybe you're still mourning Justin Bieber's bob or Zayn Malik's place in 1D. Maybe you're saving your excitement until Adele drops her new album "25" next week.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

You're spruiking Justin 'the boob' Bieber and One Direction?
Looks like your target demographic is under nineteen, eh?
You'll not induce me to purchase ANYthing with inane recommendations like these.
