Jennifer Hudson – ‘I Can’t Let Go’ on Smash

I know it’s fashionable to hate on Smash recently, but you gotta at least admit that Jennifer Hudson KILLS this song. I’ve been playing this on repeat all week. Favorite line – “And when heartache comes a’calling, / I won’t even try to run / Cause it’s all that makes me know that I’m alive.”

Glee Recaps

I really enjoy reading recaps of Glee episodes because it’s funny to read someone trying to write a coherent narrative about a program that doesn’t actually make any fucking sense whatsoever. It’s mostly “and then this happened” followed by “yeah, I don’t know what that was about, either. WTF.” And yet I watch the show
