Let me explain

Here's how we pick letters -- there is no system. My life motto is "I do what I want." I don't always do what I want, but on Alphabet Soup I do. We pick a letter based on how we feel the moment when we realize we need a letter for Friday. For instance, this week, Kelsey sent out a facebook message asking if we had done the letter R this semester, and we hadn't. So now I want to inform you that our letter this week is R.

Now at this moment when I realize that we'll need a letter for next Friday, April 3rd, I'll let you decide. Scroll through the blog or the facebook page and make sure we haven't used the letter yet this week. Otherwise, the choice is yours. You can have an adorable reason, but it's not necessary. In fact, a totally random selection will probably make you feel like you're the real deal Alphabet Soup DJ.

3/20 Playlist: The Letter C

Note: "Cappuccino" is definitely from the album Remind Me in 3 Days..., and not just from the Harold & Kumar soundtrack...check out the blog for the show High Fidelity this weekend for the WTBU-exclusive interview with the Knux, before their awesome set last night at BU Central.

Many thanks and much love to guest Soup DJ, Chris Tiernan, for stopping by to jam with us!

Old People+Young Jeezy+Animal Collective=GOLD

Seriously, this is brilliant., Stereogum informs us, has come up with the genius idea of getting members of the elderly community to review current album/single releases. The little ol' man on the right is absolutely adorable. Reminds me DISTINCTLY of my granddad. Someone, please, please buy his Girl Scout cookies! Click here (or on the picture) to read the story and watch these FANTASTIC videos.

This has been your Spring Break Cool Thing of the Week.
