The Courage of Zayn Malik and Why Strong Men Cry

It’s simple. Health > Career. People need to realize that …

Media Diversified

by Huma Munshi  

On the face of it Zayn Malik leaving One Direction shouldn’t really resonate. At 34 years old, I am past fawning over boy bands. Even when I should have been gripped by Take That fever, I had a lot more affinity with the music of old codgers like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. However, there is something about Zayn that does appeal. In part, it is the fact that he’s that rarest of species: an Asian boy band member in the British mainstream – and he is pretty striking at that.

But it was his recent departure from One Direction, which finally struck a chord. He laid bare the impact mental distress can have on a person.

Does anybody know how to get ringtones from iTunes?  I downloaded “Royals” a while ago, and then it disappeared somehow.  I bought it again today, and they charged me for it, but it’s not showing up on my phone …

Another Swifty Comes Out

I had no idea my mom was a Taylor Swift fan.  What do I hear when she picks me up for spring break?  None other than Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989.  She actually bought the hard copy.  And I have to say, it’s not half bad.  There’s more to Taylor than serial dating.  Even though she broke up with Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas, I can’t hold that against her anymore.  My two favorite songs are “Welcome to New York” and “Style”.

Hot Damnity!

The French Lieutenant’s Woman: Chapters 22-36

While Charles is still trying to sort out his feelings for Sarah, he receives word that his uncle wishes to see him immediately.  So he sets off for Winsyatt at once.  It turns out his uncle has finally married.  Which would, logically, take away Charles’s inheritance.  But his uncle has promised him one of the smaller houses on the estate that he can share with Ernestina.  This is quite the shame for Ernestina, who was looking forward to redecorating Winsyatt’s manor house.  She actually has a crying fit over it.  That girl needs a hobby.  There’s more to life than fancy houses.

Dancing with a Shield 

Dancing with the Stars is back and it’s awesome.  This week, the Stars got to dance to their favorite songs.  Willow’s is “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye.  And her dance was amazing.  So I tweeted something, and she favorited it.  I’m just really lucky.
